Re: Runaway!

They handled that VERY well......obviously trained and have a clue. I've seen it when they have zero training and not a clue and it isn't pretty for anyone involved.

Don't be concerned at times I am easily confused. I have wanted to find any quality aluminum boat builders that I could here in the North East, but they seem to be scarce as hens teeth. Now I bump into welderbob and wonder why I have struggled so to find anyone. Perhaps no one affiliated with NON A...

I've offshore fished A LOT on a buddies 20-21 foot CC, and it has a super deep V. Runs like a scalded dawg with a 250 Etec on it (1990 glass boat) The V has what they call a "padded" keel. The very bottom of at least 21 degree dead-rise has a flat spot. Kind of unique. Supposedly does something when...
