Good Headsup

Thanks Jeff for the wave-off. I'll steer clear of these boat types.

Would you say the Tashing built boats of 1981 vintage bring up the same concerns. Or is that the difference?

Kroz.

You are concerned about being a mule. That is what I brought up. You haven't said what you would do about it. Am I correct to assume you would search for contraband or what?
