If you take care of a boat it will take care of you...
you know i try and do that but it's a harsh corrosive environment and every year things just break. last year the wooden flagpole broke at the base of the shaft. Do you think I neglected proper flagpole maintenance? I oiled it every year this year screws vibrated out of the windshield frame and it started rattling. Should I have tightened them all as a precaution in the fall?
btw a robalo would be on my list if they weren't so rare and expensive up here. I'd like an older 21 cuddy with a big outboard. very nice boats if they have a full transom.
