Trying to high five the boat driver, the crash is followed by the obligatory "oh sh*&, oh sh*&"

Thanks Frank, will give that a try. I would rather do a quick check now than wait 7.5 months until it's time to go back into the lake.

My family loves the 197, but we are on a small lake and never too far from the dock.

How will you use it - trailering, docked? What size lake - how rough, how congested?

There are so many excellent products out there for your boat finish I can't even imagine why someone would find it necessary to do this!

For me? Collinite's Insulator Wax.

scorpion - me like!

The look of the Scorpion boat is interesting. Drop a 400hp engine in there, I bet it would scoot! Practical? Maybe not.
