Re: Does anybody GROUND your boat to help prevent this?

It could have been worst, he could have been in it.
If I was really worried about it happening I would put a lightning rod near it with a ground rod. But chances are good it will not happen.
i would not have guessed that so many boat get hit, nomad does 2 to 4 a year and that is one shop.

Re: Family Of 5 On Airboat Missing In Everglades

I'm glad that they got out and I'm sure they had a miserable night. The way it rained that night probably kept some of the mosquitoes down. What I can't understand is why they were taken to the hospital. If your transported in the the rescue truck your charged. I would hate to pay to be taken to a h...

If your not using a fastener to hold the poly on, can you use thinner poly to save weight?

Re: i need an honest opinion

A Q has a ton of low end push. And you can have a prop that looks new with no problems fling a tip due to water intrusion in the tip and rotting it out. I had to take a machete and chop off a good tip to balance a prop when a tip flew off. Glad I wasn't far from the ramp.

Re: Interior paint

I buy the webbing solution at a marine supply store. You can use it with gel coat or paint. Put it in a spray gun and go to town. Comes out of gun like a spider web.
