Yeah, I know, most of my boating is done during the daylight hours. But every couple weeks we hit the local lake and cruise and eat dinner and usually its dark before we go home.

Haven't figured that out yet. My first attempt is going to be engraving into the glass I just put down. If that works, I should be able to do the same with gel. A mold would be easy to make but I'm afraid it would lose too much detail. It would also require being applied at just the right moment so as to imprint but not displace.

It wouldn't surprise me if I don't end up upholstering the thing.

Finally got around to posting a few pics of my new tires, much thanks to Peter! Had Marathons that were only about 3 years old, noticed a bit of wobble on a trip up north. Wife was driving the empty trailer after launching and said she could only go about 30 mph the trailer was hopping so bad. I could tell one tire's belts had separated, so I put on the spare to get us home. The spare was a really old Marathon, so I was pressing my luck. On the way home the other tire blew, so then I had to put on the one with separated belts just to get us home. Got 2 tires from Peter (Thanks again!) and all was good. Then over the next few days the spare "slowly exploded". Belts separated and looked like a blowout over 2 days. Kinda crazy. Got another tire from Peter, and all is well!
First pic is the blowout on the road, 2nd is the spare tire "slow motion blowout"
Thanks again Peter, and it was nice to meet you and see your cool old boat.
Kevin

I should be the one thanking you Kevin. Just happy to be of service and good to see you safely back on the road with tires you can count on. I really appreciate your business.


..........and I never mind showing off the '77 when I can. We will have to get together some time and you can put her through the paces.
