Re: 0 420 i think

Re: Boat Ramp Etiquette

Re: Milk Bus on Lake Kississimee

It was the old Bordens milk delivery truck, it happened in the late 60's if I remember right, I was still in High school in St Cloud, he didn't get much, maybe couple K but you could buy a new car for that back then.

Re: Rudder help Please, 4ft vs 5 on 16ft boat???

4 or 5 either one will work, but it sounds like your fighting the rudder stick to turn. That being the case it sounds like you have a issue with the pivot point on your rudders not being balanced
