Re: Painting of hull transom topside question

Painted my hull with Rustoleum Top Side-Gloss White and the stripe with Top Side Navy Blue, used 3/4" reflective tape for the stripes within the stripe. It must be added a great part of my decision in using the Rustoleum was the fact it was free. Sanded the hull with 80 grit on a random orbit s...

Re: Boat lift in slip?

Have my fishing boat on a Boat Floater, works great. There are several manufactures of lifts and yes you can get one that would lift your 32, hate to think what it would cost, probably a lot more than you paid for the boat.
