[B][U]Oil Question,[/U][/B]

OK read alot of threads here and was surprised to see oil choices ranging from 20W-50 conventional to synthetic to 15-40 diesel CJ4 oil. I've seen similar discussions in motorcycle forums before too. So at the risk of starting a big debate- 1996 5.7 TBI - Stick with 20W-50 as books say or other?? Kaboom there it is.

Safety stickers

Need to replace the badly worn out safety stickers on the rear of the boat and the drivers seat side. See pics. Advice?

Why not remove them and leave them off?

I replaced my warning sticker with this. My GF didn;t even notice it until I told her at the end of the season.

That's a great restoration. Very nice work. I hope the boat was free when you got it... in the shape it was in, it had almost zero value. Awesome work bringing one back from the dead.
