RE: Tires (Trawler related, well, sort of)

Never clicked on it, never opened it, never cared about it.

I just don't care what your non boating opinions are. The new owners should do away with it. This is a boating forum.

RE: How Slow Can I Go?

I may be wrong since you have had a few valuable replies, but to me your post is unreadable.

Have you considered paragraphs? Punctuation?

Both contribute to readability.

A new rudder for the little DeFever

The rudder on my boat is way too small. I think the 2 previous owners just learned to live with it.
