  1. I removed my stripe using one of those wheels that like a pencil eraser. Put in on a drill and just run it over the decal. Removes everything and doesn't mess up the gelcoat. Works fast too
  2. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my boat was dry. Not even that wet in the normal places. Only a little bit of water in the bilge too. No wind damage or anything either. But there is a tree floating at the end of our docks!
  3. Just hoping the wind didn't do any damage to my boat. Guess I better go up after work
  4. how bad did todays storm hit the Lake? I'm wondering if I should go check on my boat
  5. I get a lot of water under my cover on the starboard side right behind the arch. It goes down into the storage compartment under the seat and ends up down in the bilge. I also get water under the bow cover at the windshield. Unfortunately the covers are a complete seal. But for the most part the boat stays pretty dry
  6. +1. This also works if your lines start to fray at the end
  7. I was out last week and noticed some lumber floating. I really wish they'd keep the level high tho!
  8. no, won't hurt it. My boat is 10 yrs old. And yes, don't worry about a missed approach. I still to that sometimes
  9. when I'm backing in, I do a lot of forward/reverse, turning the wheel back & forth to keep the boat straight. Just bumping it in/out of gear. Slowly! I never really focused much on the pivot point.
  10. I back mine in. I'm in a double slip with a Mastercraft. There is about a foot space between us. Just keep practicing and you'll get it. As for the "blind spot", the struggle is real. Last summer while backing into a vacation house slip, i nailed my swim platform on the corner of the dock. I swore I was clear but BAM!! Very nice gouge!!
  11. I never account for stretch in my lines. I just set it where I want and it stays all season. I use a spring line to keep it from rubbing on the fenders at the back of the slip and I criss cross my stern lines. I'm in a double slip. I have fleece covered dock bumpers on my dock and a corner pad.
  12. LOL. Sometimes it works on your kid's head too!!:)
  13. sometimes my tach goes a little haywire---reads low or high or jumps around. If I simply tap my finger on the tack it goes to normal
  14. I set mine exactly as Watson 524 described above. I also have a 700lb bathroom scale that I bought from Amazon that helped.
  15. I wax my arch.
