Under boat tree this year.

Got this spiffy Mantus 45 for $337 at the St Pete Boat Show. Assembly was required and the bolt holes didn't line up, but she's together! What's under your tree this year.

Rtfm

I thought that too, but I wasn't smart enough to know what RTFM meant without looking it up. I did get the jest though. LMAO
