Yep. I've come close to praying a few times out there in our power boat and I am not religious.

(I assume we're talking about Absecon Inlet? )

Eventually the boat will end up at the shore in Brigantine. The smaller back bays are not bad but I thought I should get some practice on safer waters before I try it. Does anyone know if Lakes Bay...

Re: What size boom vang

I've thought about a Boomkicker but a bit pricey for me right now. Thanks for the tip on pulleys, though. I found a groovy :) plan for a mast raising system and need pulleys for that.

Believe it or not, someone offered me a free motor. Downside? It may be too much motor at 7.5 and it is a 2-stroke, which I'm told requires a precise mixture of gas and oil. Dunno. What do you think?
