I have been boating my whole life but I can not navigate a "forum". I have a 16,6 Bayon with 115 TOP both 1978. I moved from Portland Or. to Roseburg Or. where the nearest water deep enough to run a prop is an hour away. Cottage Grove lakes, Loon Lake, Gailsville resevoir and a little lake close to Sutherlin called Cooper Creek. It would be fun to meet other Bayon/TOP owners for any gatherings in the NW.
