hawhawhaw yea, I had some coming thru my own hull. Turns out that the guy who my friend got the boat from before he gave it to me used some screws that were a lil too long when he screwed the mounting bracket for the bilge pump down to the floor. Theres like 1/6 of an inch of screw poking thru the bottom of my boat in 2 places, but thats not something that a lil sea going epoxy putty cant fix.

Now to help get you started around here, WELCOME    ;D

I concurr with Keith.  Show us what you're trying to do. There's many of us, me included, that have most if not all of the parts you need just laying around, and have big enough hearts to help out, but we gotta be met at least halfway. All of the people you've heard from , and many more on this site, have helped me through a very difficult time (and continue to do so) and are willing to do the same again and again. They have done more than is necessary and even more than they know.

On the same tone, you need to really evaluate your relationship, dude. That is, in a word, fuggedup! Maybe it's time for her to put up or time you trade up. That's just a personal observation from what I read.

Just trying to help.

I'm new on this site myself. Besides the boats themselves being a blast to play with. Think the group into this niche of boating is always the best out on the water. Boated around Washington State, spots along the Columbia River, go down to Shasta and Red Bluff, play further down on the Sac River, etcetera. Every time I've gone out doesn't matter the state, lake or river. I'll get another jet pull up flag me down offer beer. Get invited to the spot they are beached or floating, etcetera. Very social and friendly crowd, kinda like small town living.

I know more about meeting Women. I'm never getting married! When I lose my looks I'll move to some third world paradise that young hot girls treat dirty old men like rock stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
