Have you seen the new boats have GPS docking like the cars that parallel park themselves?

Re: I think i have found the one...

For $400 I doubt you are going to get much out of a survey that you can't see for yourself, anyhow. Surveyors don't do engine diagnostics. Or really system diagnostics. Mostly the survey will read "appears in working order" or in working order. "Appears sound", "could use se...

Re: I think i have found the one...

I have had State Farm and Progressive(currently) and did not need a survey either time. Actually, I've never needed a survey to get insurance. (5 boats all over 32') .And the State Farm one was for a 1964 37' Owens Grenada, only four years ago! That was a damn sweet boat too..And another one a 1955 ...

Re: I think i have found the one...

$400 is a deal. I enlarged the pic looks like West Harbor Marina. For 400 maybe do it. PM me if you want, if that boat is at west harbor Marina AND WHM owns it.. I have dealt with them before.

Re: I think i have found the one...

I'm on the flip side of Bill. If it's in the water, running, and you have mech/elec knowledge, forget the survey. Pull the boat out and inspect the hull for any drastic pitting if it makes you feel better.. It's cheaper than a survey(probably $700-1000). It's a boat, stuff is going to break.. I will...

Re: No small leaks

Yeah never ever leave the city water on. I have a shut off on the hose where it attaches to the boat as well. Jeff is right more boats sink at the dock than anywhere else last time I heard.

28' Project On Road Hudson, Ohio

I saw a 28' project M being trailered down Rt. 91 in Hudson, Ohio yesterday. I've seen one sitting next to a barn in Streetsboro (next town over). Same one? Is it anyone here? Looked like a mid '60s model maybe. I think it had a round window or something. Looked older.. Blue trim. Just curious. Than...

Re: winter boat cover?

I looked into buying an old army tent about six years ago for mine. It was a huge tent too, like a mess tent. I think it had a place for a chimney in it and it would've worked great except I didn't think that it was quite long enough on the sides because mine had a flybridge. It was gonna cost $1000...

Re: Leaving Boat In Water All Winter In Huron, Ohio

I called Sawmill first but they don't like to do it anymore. Not enough water in marina in the winter.. Harbor North marina. Not my Marina now, I'm in Port Clinton. It would be just for the winter.
