Re: What is the most idiotic mistake you have made on a boat?

Re: Tornados/Severe Weather (Inland Lake)

Re: 1971 Hobie 16 ?

you said it was in great condition.. that means you have no worries. even if it's in fair shape and less than $500 and includes a decent trailer, I'd buy it. Can't buy that much fun for $500 very...

Re: Selling a boat and transport long distance

Re: Charter fleet ownership

Re: Vessel Purchase in Caribbean

Mine was built in south africa, so.. I don't understand how it could have been imported, it has never been here. Like I said, I hope you're right, and I'm wrong.

Re: Drilling out stainless steel screws :(
