yeah yeah, I know I have been MIA for years. Thanks for everyone that continues to contribute. I have only had my boat out about 4 times in the last 8 years. I keep moving. I am back in California after my stint in Washington and pulled the boat from my parents place to mine to clean it up and use it. I will use it this summer then takle a partial core replacement. My multiple skag setup has created a soft spot (it's 44 years old so not bad). Here is a couple pics. Daniel 2MERCS on the plate and the back of the boat.
