Hope you are able to follow through Nick and having a spare makes great sense. Just looking at the design, my impression that they would fare better than a conventioanl prop in an impact. The...

I've been watching Sharrow props for a while now and they do show a lot of promise. I agree it would be great to see a comparison on a larger boat. Only guessing, but I would think that at slower...

Roughly about the same for Valvtect in CT but can vary as much as $.50 or more depending on the marina. Also some will offer discounts for boats staying in a transient slip or different boating...

Thanks. I don't eat much fried food, but will make an exception once in a while if it's clams, oysters, fish, etc.

Steamers are ok, but not my favorite. Lobser rolls only if hot. Mayo has no...

I didn't see a price, but at least it's not that old. Cabins look pretty sparse for my tastes.

Sounds like you basically are saying that you can't afford a boat in this market. If it's a seller's market and people are paying more than asking price, then either play that game or not, but why...

I have to chime in on this part. What puzzles me most is that some people prefer your scenario than producing oil locally and transporting it cleanly and efficently through a pipeline. AND they...
