Re: Outboard motor insurance in Florida

might want to check your home owners insurance. many cover small out boards for theft( if its not been used this is all you really need assuming they are ok with that) they may have an option to give you a rider policy. I know they have for me in the past when I had the blown alky motor when I was r...

Re: towing your boat behind a house boat

make sure you lash the steering wheel other wise it will be uncontrollable. also remember to slow down for a long time so your boat does not run into the back of you. ( don't ask me how I know :mrgreen: )

Re: Barrelback 20 4.3 ltr

it should be just fine. the only thing I would worry about is prop size if you were towing skiers. you might be stuck with a small prop and lower rpms.

Re: What is half way point on a build?

the half way point is when you put it in the water... after that you find all the things you want to change and make "better, for the third time"
