The redhead is one of our local ferro masterpieces. It looks like they put the rig from a 25 footer on a 10 ton boat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

All I know is that I'll now feel a whole lot better concerning the outcome of some of my upcoming projects on the new(old) boat. Here I was worried about replacing backing plates and resealing mounts ans thru-hulls. Looks like a trip to Home Depot is in order!

If ya let the guys from West Marine see that, they will sell it next year for 5 times the cost as non slip deck covering

Always remember, no matter HOW badly you f#&k it up, there's always someone who did a worse job.
