Question, do marinas usually sell/rent used jack stands?
There's a few on Craiglist for the jersey shore area now.

another guy had a set of 4 for sale the other day, can't find them right now, must have been mixed in with other parts he was selling.

Yes, on inboard boats "dry weight" includes the standard HP motors that come with the boat.

A few updates... Went to look at a trailer this weekend, im going to be picking it up this weekend if he still has it ( hope he does) he wont hold it for me also started taking out the counter in the boat, I'll put some picture up this weekend. Also, in regards to the front windows, I'm thinking about eliminating them... Yay or nay? I like the clean look without windows up front!! Also thinking about removing the bow rail as well. What do u guys think??

How come you removed the front windows? I mean, aside from looking cool, why do people and manufacturers do that? Is it so waves crashing over the bow don't break the glass?

Well, originally I removed the front windows because the gaskets and seals were leaking horribly.. I've always like the look over no front cabin windows, so that's why I'm considering deleting them. I just like the clean look, all personal preference in my opinion. Plus id never have to deal with them leaking again, If they're not there

I've seen snap on Stamoid covers that match pretty well, keeps water out and can be taken off on those fall days to warm up the cabin. Just an option.

Nadornati - Our windows were closed off by the previous owner during a major overhaul. They were filled in with wood and then glassed over. I'm guessing they were removed due to major leak / rot issues.

It looks real good, I just like that smooth look upfront... Is the interior finished? Do you have any shots of the fiberglass job from the inside?

Windows leak, period. It is tough to mount a front window that will not develop a leak.

Can you post some pictures of how your bunk trailer is configured. Also a few of the trailer sitting infront of or along side the boat to see how it matchs up height wise. It would also be a good idea to start getting some 6x6 timbers cut into 2ft lenghts together (around 8 of them) and and assortment of different thickness plywood pieces. It will make it easier to get the boat on the trailer because you will most likely have to gradually get the trailer under it by moving the supporting blocks around a few times.
