Im sure you know by now that there has been a major push by one sided individuals to get these local areas of water c...

Re: 16'x8' with 350 questions.

Post more pics......how much did you pay for the boat......It all winds up with how much you want to spend and what you plan on doing with the boat. engine stand if you could build it for a small block should not cost you more than 300.00 you could get away with building a new cage out of EMT for le...
