No, that's a picture someone posted on here a while back. IIRC, the boat was not stored in the water, but on the trailer ... on wet bunks. Memory could have faded.

I wonder how many people have blisters and don't know it? I was just thinking that if they were under the bunk and you never put it in a lift you wouldn't know? Do they leak where they are? If so I guess you might know.

Happens to everyone. But I do believe the boat pictured is a MC.

Interesting aricle on blisters can be found by clicking here (http://www.yachtsurvey.com/moreonblisters.html.htm). There are a couple of low res black and white picture and although the article is not particular to tow boats, I found it interesting. Hope this is helpful.

Remember Ric's old Trailer bunks? :) cutting boards are quite dry yet foolish, ugly, dangerous, treacherous, damaging and downright dumb

If so I guess you might know. I agree. If the hull is blistering at the bunks, I'd not know it. I probably would not care either

Uh.....In Tennessee, across the street from the 'bu plant.

They were also built in the earlier years in Greenback, TN on the North side along Highway 411, between Maryville, TN and Vonore, TN. There is presently a custom limited quanity wakeboard boat company operating out of the old Skiers Choice Su/Mo plant.

Do I need to worry about blisters if the boat was pulled out for winter and is sitting on the trailer....in cold cold weather??
