I'm running a 1999 Merc EFI 250 on the SeaVee. Loud? yes, probably one of the loudest - I like to have an engine tell me what it's doing when offshore. And besides, at 30 knots cruise the wind is...

MJ is a gentleman, a great athlete and a fine human being. It matters not who rigs a bait, who runs the boat, etc. He who pays the freight wins the tournament and besides, he's enjoying the whole...

I've been fishing all my life. Kill tournaments are awful. Ever heard of the Masters? That's where you'll see the real anglers.

The arrest is public record, therefore the public should be allowed to see the record. Besides.... have you ever known a felon who was arrested the first time he or she committed said felony?

I'm a big fan of trying to interpret stress cracks in gel coat. But these are a little odd. It's possible that the pattern suggests a stretching of the gel coat rather than an impact (compression)...

The problem with tilted all the way up is that you then have two weights ahead of and behind the transom. So when you go over bumps the engine rocks back and forth stressing the transom. Watch a boat...

Well yeah.... i didn't mean as a do-it-yourself project. I meant that it's not that difficult. The difficult part is finding someone who is as good as they say they are!

Why not just cut the lid shape out of the existing deck? Use the cut out piece as the lid and the crown will be the same as the deck.

That one, according to some who looked at it for repair estimates, was actually intended to be a "plug". That is - not really a boat but a mock up from which a mold is made. Don't know if it was true...
