Ladder question

To me, the choice seems to be between fashion and function. I vote for function. If it doesn''t do the job as well as it should, I wouldn''t care how good it might look.

Crazy?

Rather than decide the length of the boat first, I would initially determine the safety features, comforts, and necessities that should be aboard. I would then make it a point to see every boat that...

Reverse Motoring

In reverse, the torque resulting from the propellor rotation will always "throw" the stern of your C30 to port. It is a matter of physics and you can do nothing to prevent it.
