pros and cons to carpet ?

just curious what are the pros and cons to adding carpet to your boat ? I like the way it looks but am worried about the maintenance of it. I use my boat in salt water most of the time and occasionally take it on the river. thanks

Viewing Pictures?

if you read the red colored info at the top of the page it explains whats going on. Basically the website is switching to a new service provider and all the info including pics and what not are in the process of switching to the new, so they may not work until everything is switched over.

Bought 1st boat monday- second guessing decision

is the guy paying out of pocket ? or is his insurance involved? make sure nobody cheaps you out on the deal. just because the hole in the boat is fixed doesnt make it fair. I would not be happy if any of the damage was still there, like scratches or dents on the boat or trailer.

Price of a Trailer

Ive picked nice jetskie trailers for 50 to 250 just to re-sell them. a brand new trailer ranges around 1100 I think, so anything under 500 isnt a terrible deal, but I see them (nice) go for 250 to 400. you just have to be quic...

rebuilding/ beefing up a transom ?

Im thinking about adding a 3/8 or 1/4 aluminum plate across the entire transom, and replace the wood on the inside all the way across, as well as add some more bracing to help hold it up straight. im going to work on a drawing to explain a l...

Parking the boat

if my boat sits very long I always take the key out. really hard to get a locksmith to make a key for a boat. I put a padlock on my hitch but I close it into the down position... Makes it harder to hook on using the ball hitch. unless your boats in the water then I wouldnt worry about the key, peop...
