    Daily Commute Via Boat On Potomac River?

    Live the dream of being a boating commuter. I would have wanted to do it. If possible.

    New H2O sport

    The day I bought my 2nd 2002 186 SSI 5.0l was the best. I really wanted this boat again.

    Rain & stormy waves ? Lightening ? With a back up plan you are good. If you carry concealed ? check both dock locations...….. Wear your L jacket. Other people are more reckless in boats. It works out that way.

    F150 going electric?

    Is that really a windshield with 1 veryhighly stressed p0int of contact ? No side curved wings to prevent collapse & possible rip off into the passengers ? Pass on it at any price. Great boat in very protected waters. Love the tight rope walking bow paths in any chop or wind. Different to be different boat.

    I have to say that the boat looks better from a great distance. Close up it looks like sharp edged computer aided design. I like old style Just noticed it only seats 8 skinny people. My old 186 seats 7 + 200 pounders very loosely. Price is at least a 6 pack of 186s ? Hatem Where did you hide the anchor ?

    What color to buy?

    A clean bottom all winter in storage has no value to me. I clean the green slime line off as it gets bad enough with a long poled stiff brush. I can do it while docked from each side. N Y river water has simple slime to remove. Piece of cake. Florida & other southern waters ? Good grief if you want a fairly easy to clean bottom. Grasses & shell mollusks GLUED to the bottom ? Sad Very sad without a boat lift down south. Or in nasty north waters. A light pressure wash is good enough for the 186.

    exploding Window

    Higher stresses on a curve sometimes. A previous hit there could also cause a sudden blowout...….. Just fix it is required. Taylor might pay for all of it ? Send them the pictures. It shows it broke in the garage.

    exploding Window

    Be very greatfull it really is / was safety glass. Eyesight depends on it looking like that when it breaks. That condition happens due to manufacturing conditions on the assembly lines.

    F150 going electric?

    600 volts is a VERY dangerous voltage to get thru your heart. Fatal. Plenty of amperage.to stop it..…… DO NOT DIY that system. Rubber gloves & a full face shield are required.

    Signature Owners and Water Leak

    The costs of dealing with middle mark up people. Why I carefully ask the seller who pays for any problems & shipping charges back & forth.. I tell them I am recoding their return procedures. That causes a hang up. Or a no problem response. I do read all the return instructions on a new retailer. Then call anyway. I have had a retailer tell me to trash 2 brand new expensive A C units. 3rd unit is running fine after 3 years.

    What color to buy?

    My 2002 186 black graphics are almost virgin in appearance. We have the availability of quality. Companies are just too cheap & smart to build long lasting products. Like drug companies. Just give temporary performance / satisfaction. At top dollar.

    Europeans have had short range electric delivery vans for decades. England is who I first read about.

    What color to buy?

    All colors of cars sit out ALL YEAR, AROUND THE WORLD. But they do not fade or chalk up. Great clear coats. The boat companies were VERY slow to use auto clear coats. DDUUUUHHH
