Re: What's my boat weight

Thanks. I'm in salt water with a 8 ft sea wall. Going to make a 14ft wide solid platform I can walk on and get another boat on.

Re: AIRBOAT RETRACTABLE BIMINI TOP

I tried a Bimini too, it really intensified the prop noise, enough that I wouldn't even put it up while underway. Went back to an umbrella.

It will have three small raised marks molded into the shank of the blade. Unless you have had the prop refinished with DuraSkin you should be able to find them. Look right along where it goes into the hub and generally they will be in proximity to where the outer clamshell and base join in that sea...
