I couldn't agree more. The purpose is to have fun, whatever "sport" you choose is your business and no one else's.

In 1990, I bought a new Barefoot Nautique. At the end of the first season, it had 325 hours on it so 250 for a 4 year old boat isn't much. Like was mentioned, good maintenance is the key.

Some people just don't deserve to own one of these boats. Sounds like it's in good hands now.

I was just curious. A well cared for engine can go several thousand hours. Congratulations on bringing a classic back to life.

OK, thanks Jeff, I'll look into that. First thing is to get the old one out, that doesn't sound like it will be a day at the beach.

Is this a special type of Sea Foam, or the same kind you pick up for injector cleaning? Also, how much would you use for 30 gal., one can be enough?
