    Been spending some time on Colorado recently, and near as I can tell from the locals, the snow, rain, and reservoirs on the west side of the divide, that part that makes the westward flow of the Colorado River, have been above average for the past several years. So much so, that they have...

    bought a beater bowrider with a super solid hull and blown motor for $900. The motor I can handle myself. In fact, I already have a spare in there now. But the upholstery is pretty tattered. The original upholstery was super fancy with a bunch of custom colors. I just want it repaired or...
