Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Hmmm, it appears you missed the point of my "anecdote" posted above...

It had nothing to do with remembering/forgetting to close those hull portlights on that Marine Trader...

Re: My new dinghy, thank you

I can't imagine why you'd even bother... :-)

However, if you try it in a NO WAKE ZONE, a citation from the Florida Marine Patrol might possibly be one of the "results"...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Nothing inherently wrong with that berth, not much else that can be done with a quarter cabin... I used that accomodation plan to illustrate the lack or storage space for the sort of gear one...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

C'mon, out - that's only there for the Boat Shows, you don't think that's actually for sleeping, do you?
