    Furniture In Havasu

    I've been wondering the same thing. I'm about to close escrow on a house in LHC and some people have suggested going to Kingman but I don't know what's there either. My thought is to buy what I can in LHC... Good luck, Dave - Miniboatfan

    First Time Boat Painter

    So I've taken to heart all of the input about coatings and I'm going with gel coat. Unfortunatley I made a big mistake by using epoxy resin which further complicates the gel coat. I have asked around a lot and I've found the Duratech ES Sanding primer will create a decent substrate. I was...

    Needles boat and car show. --- PICTURES ---

    Thanks RD, these are great pics. I'm really glad I made the drive from Long Beach and I was right, it was worth the $3 admission. It was a very cool event and the folks in the community were really friendly. I hope next time I can meet some of the RD web folks. Best to all Dave - Miniboatfan

    I'd much rather be worried about getting up the river to the show...I'm driving up tomorrow from Long Beach. I figure the cheap admission has got to be worth the 245 mile drive...Ha ha. Maybe I will get to meet some of you guys. Have a safe trip RD. Dave - Miniboatfan

    12' Daytona Outboard - Please Help!

    I took a close look at the E-Tec engines at the LA boat show and I was really impressed. There was one running right next me and I didn't even notice it until the sales guy pointed it out. He was familiar with the Daytona and felt pretty strongly that the 50 would be a great balance of power...

    12' Daytona Outboard - Please Help!

    Thanks DeltaSigBoater, I am really leaning toward the 4 stroke for long term use. I think the idea of shortening the jack plate to pull the engine closer to the transom is a great idea because currently it's about a foot away and it is the original fixed style. It would be a good opportunity...
