Headquartered in Yuma and head north up the river raiding, pillaging and plundering Parker, Havasu, Laughlin, ect. from time to time.
    I am the proud owner of The MerKaBa, a vintage 20' 1982 Liberty Sport Cruiser I spent years dialing in. She's coming along nicely and runs a 461 BBC built by Ronnie Beck @ Valley Ranchers Machine Shop in Wellton AZ. The JG-12 built by me with collaboration and scared knowledge shared by jet pump guru Vic VanHorn @ Desert Yacht Marine in Yuma. Great To be here!

    Thanks man! Just did a quick mod for a beach umbrella with a fishing rod holder. Gives me shade up front (only when beached of course) till I can get a longer bimini $$$$.

    Thanks! The bench set up moves the CG back to where she's prone to go airborne, wild ride sometimes with the diverter cranked up!:eek: It also makes me the meat in between a booby sammich when stacked right ;):D

    Hi. New here but I saw your boat and wanted to say that my uncle had one very similar if not the same. Bow was different. Yours is Legit!
