Dear Big D,
The Yamaha I bought is a 1997 and all the paint is still on the prop. While it came from Lebanon PA it's clear to me they probably never had it in the Susquehanna or Juniata, or if they did they were extremely careful with where they went.
I've checked out a number of accesses on the two rivers and I figure if I take my time and don't try to do what I know I shouldn't I'll be able to keep most of the paint on the prop too.
The only issue I have with the Grumman Sport Boat is that it has no drain. I wonder if I could get a good welder who works with aluminum to put one in for about $ 100.00 or so? I'd would be worth it too me to not have to bail the boat all the time.
The boat sits outside on the trailer, I suppose I could tarp it too?
