I know this will get me in trouble
So heres the deleama...do I want the newer girl with the fat ass wide body for her size and stubby nose who looks like everybody else...or do I want the classy girl...who is a little older with more experience, better looker, takes care of herself and is more of an individual.
Haha I like the analogy. Forgive me for being ignorant but what is the difference between fractional spreaders and non? Which boat has which?
