Re: Undeleting Coast Guard Documentaion??

Between the reply above and some research I've been doing, I've since learned that redocumenting is indeed a process that is relatively commonplace. The only issue I'm having now is that I can't...

Re: Undeleting Coast Guard Documentaion??

I agree. I once called them on another matter and left a message about a question I had. Someone actually called me back at 9am the next morning with the answer. I can't get that kind of service...

Re: Volvo Penta MD2 Valve Job

Excellent point. I am trusting the seller's diagnosis that it "needs a valve job." I think he's making an educated guess but given that he's an engineer, I give it a bit of weight. Having said...

Re: Pearson 303

Many of the factors you've cited are why I'm leaning towards the 303. At 6'2", the roominess is a big factor for me. I'm not worried about speed - that's what motorcycles are for. :eek:
