  1. Size and shape screams 50s . Short shaft isn't working on any glass boat with more than 2* of deadrise.. Slap it on your wall of fame as you mentioned.
  2. Tom Allen posted it yesterday on Facebook. I am pretty sure he is a reputable source.
  3. Went there last year as well. No issues. I would blame Fauci and his involvement in the Wuhan lab if I contracted it . Anyway it sucks for the people running it , the local hotels , bars , restaurants, vendors and on and on. I received a random , if you want to call it that , today from NYS , telling me to jab any of my kids over 5 year and dont forget the useless booster. Harassment 101 and my " kids " are all over 30 .
  4. Total BS if it was bc of the China Flu. Just flew out west and back., O'Hara was as packed as it gets , full capacity on planes . No issues in Bozeman as in face diapers and going to a packed venue for a concert . Fricking NY tyrants.
  5. Most windshields on boats are the same as far as sweep goes. Blades are usually shorter than the car version. No big deal to turn power off when blade is on one side or the others vs one that parks itself.
  6. I can ask the same question about the jab.
  7. They are all aftermarket, not boat mfg specific, Westmoreland. Defender Marine , Ebay will all have them. They are fairly universal, if yours has the parking feature and you like that ,make sure the replacement states that in the ad .
  8. Flatten the curve , everybody isolate for 2 weeks , wear mask , herd immunity. 70% of people get jabbed and were good , fireworks by Cuomo the bully predator.signifying it's beat , countries 100% jabbed doesn't matter, boosters 1 ,2 and 3 $$$$, start jabbing all kids , southern border wide open , no jab or china test., fly them all over in the middle of the night , northern border closed and these people are jabbed, have visas, will take test and spend money here not lookng for free handouts, nothing the government has said or forced down our throats has worked or is factual. Vaccine definition changed to cover there ass. It's here to stay , live your life or hide in the basement.
  9. It is not up to the retailers in many cases , if the MFG sets the bottom line as the " MAP " and you go lower they will stop selling you that product if caught doing it. They can be creative and for example if you buy a certain MFD they will throw in free installation or some much lesser priced item but that MFD is still sold at the MAP number. As I said before,not all MFGs care what there product is sold for as long as they are getting paid by whomever. It's a calculated risk dependent on what products they are selling and how fast they are flying off the shelf or not.
  10. I have been in sales for the last 45 years , most ,if not all retail stores average mark up is 50 % . Overhead is huge , Brandon somehow getting a hold of a product and selling it out of Moms basement has zero overhead. The legit distributor doesn't have a fighting chance against Brandon and whenever possible they will report Brandon to the MFG who will try and track him or find out how he is getting the product and shut it down. I have been in the room when a motorcycle shop was going off on S&S ( major HDavidson supplier ) about this ,online sales . S & S took care of it , didn't want to lose shop as customer.
  11. Sorry I am not wrong, they set the suggested retail price and if you come off it they stop selling you the product.i am talking about larger companies like Raymarine , Hummingbird etc. Some companies allow it ( price slashing ) but in the process lose there base that kept them in business over time or sell enough product that they don't care. Gearwrench would be a good example of everyone cutting each others throat. Then you have Snap On/ Mac tools that do not budge on there prices. You can argue all you want ,go to the FTC, not going to change a thing
  12. Manufacturers can tell there distributors what the list or selling minimum price is. Don't adhere to it and your contract or exclusive right to sell there products is terminated. This keeps legit distributors from slitting each other's throat and allows them a profitable margin so they can stay in business. If I was a distributor and knew that the product I was selling was allowed to be whored out to anyone and sold with hardly any mark up I would stop buying and selling that product. This , ( MFG setting selling price ) , protects a legit distributor from having to compete with Brandon selling out of his basement . Leveling the playing field or should I say keeping your distributors happy is the end game for most MFGs. Good luck with the FTC , might as well be fighting City hall or the dictators of NY. I would be spending my spare time doing fishing gear / boat maintenance instead of getting worked up about something that you have no control over.
  13. I am getting 5 boosters shots and a oxygen mask fresh air system instead of the traditional useless face diapers. Speaking of useless , noticed the CDC changed the definition of Vaccine shots to cover there ass's for a shot that is not a Vaccine. I don't believe a word that comes out of Fauci's mouth and his funded Wuhan lab that started this ****. Not afraid to live ,not afraid to die . Especially after 2 years of constant intimidation by people that we elected . Screw the government, they are all above the law and do not even follow there own mandates ,which they can shove up there.....
  14. IMHO it's worth whatever you can get at the scrap yard. If it would actually fit someone's boat without modifications $$ I would be surprised. Finding some one that could actually use it as is would be a bonus.i may be completely off base with my opinion, you could try something like Antique Classic boats or Chris Craft Ownership Group on Facebook , and see if anyone there might know its worth .
