Re: Beautiful Alberg on the cover of GOB is

Well eBay claims that it is easy to get your money back, but it seems that neither buyers nor sellers are happy with the process. So for me, it would have to be "cheap enough" to not be bothered by a...

I got my tubing from Grainger (http://www.grainger.com/content/about-us). Fittings on eBay from Aurora Canvas.

Pretty cheap. And it seems to be holding up well.

Re: Florida Keys, Best Anti-Fouling

I've had good results using Ameron ABC 3. It's a commercial ablative paint and usually runs $100-$125 a gallon.

Re: Florida Keys, Best Anti-Fouling
