    Hello my name is Ted and this is my first post on this forum. I have owned a boat before and have been around boats off and on throughout my life. But I have never owned a jet boat. I have my eye on a 1988 21' Caribbean Hardin with a BBC 454. By all the pictures that I've see of it it looks...

    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and will soon be a first time boat owner. I've been around ski boats (not too familiar with performance boating) for some years, but have never pulled the trigger on purchasing. Now that my wife is on board, I have begun my search. I'd love to get some...

    Gun control run amuck Gun Control. It has already started at Dick's Sporting Goods. When I was ready to pay for my purchases of a new rifle and bullets, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me." Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control whackos running amok, I did just...

    I was banned from RDP, I was just having a little fun. I was mocking Tom Brown (im sure he gets a kick out of it) when Shintooo says "fuck grads"; I dont know what "grads" means. So, I proceeded to say "shitoo licks balls", i figure if he can have his dig at me why cant I?

    We have designated forums for each drive type to talk about the powerplants and drivetrains. We also have a forum for paint and fiberglass, so that covers the Hull. I was thinking there could be a place to gather and share information about custom upholstery, whether it be pics to inspire new...

    Hey Guys, I'm a newbie to the Forum. Thought you might like to see an oldie that I bought last year. Its a '73 Avenger, with a factory installed 454 built by Guardian Marine to LS6 specs when new. It was a $400 upcharge, according to the invoice. It's still in it's original Apricot gelcoat, and...

    Hey there! I am new to the forum. I just became an owner of a '74 (I think) sleekcraft 18' with a olds 455, for $300 bucks none the less. With a little love it fired right up but it sounds like it has a spun rod. I added some pics. The first is how I found it. The second at home cleaned up a...

    Not sure who messed with what, but not only is the What's new tab moved, they totally jacked it up. What ever happened to the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" :((((((
