Re: Need help with changing the rear main seal

Re: Redneck boat cover

ahh that makes sense... i park my boat under a big ass tree.. i was thinking of stringing a tarp from the tree, over the boat and staking it out on teh sides so that the air moves under it.. we'll see how that works out i gotta figure out something to keep the F-in pine cones out ahahah
