Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Re: In Hull Fishfinder

Re: In Hull Fishfinder

I had thought about doing that as well but was curious if there is a difference in performance between using the transom transducer or a puck? Or if it is just negligible? One other question. Did you...

I also posted the following on the RL forum (RL Trailable Yachts from Rob Legg Yachts (http://www.rlyachts.net/forum.asp?ID=4943#ID4943)), figured I would ask in both places:

Sailing Magazines

So I've been reviewing a few sailing magazine sites, all are near the same price at about $2 an issue for 12 issues, or some at $25 for 10. Anyone have a favorite and why?

Re: Interior Carpeting

You know that makes me think, would tearing it all out and just Gelcoating be practical? It would definitely be easier than relining it with another material and would certainly be much much quicker.
