Re: Dry-docked

I believe less than a minute not an issue. Others here might agree or disagree. If you have a day or two wait for others to reply. Is the boat at a marina or your back yard.

Re: WOT

Re: New Flybridge Controls

Re: WOT

And I am loaded with carbon due to excessive cruising at 1500. Looking at using Sea Foam in another post.

Rick, I'm only 5'7" lol

Boat being pulled around Oct 15.
