GO9 plus OP50 remote is a great flush-mount setup. Best of touch screen and buttons: put the screen where your eyes need it and the remote where your fingers need it. Mine is set up so I am resting...

Boat-to restaurant recommendation St Pete Beach area

We normally hang around Anna Maria and south, but we're planning to head north this weekend to explore some more. What are some good boat-to restaurants in the Pass-a-Grille to Treasure Island...

Jason certainly welds a bunch of race car frames, but he does boats still too - or at least he did last year when he made some mods to my T-Top. Give him a call - awesome guy and amazing work.

Too true! My wife can back her 40' horse trailer with inches of precision - the boat is a walk in the park! She can also plug a tire with a nail in it in less than 5 mins :thumbsup:
