Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

First of all, thanks for serving our country. (Second of all, you lucky dog! Love to mess around with explore that 'boat'.) I hope you can get the boat (yours) closer to home, for that was always my problem with mine (and it was 3 hours away). Lots of work to be done, but they're worth it in the end...

Re: Paint scheme

Black and blue? I was that a few times from working on mine!
