    Still in business....?!?!?

    How is West Marine still in business? I'm serious! I understand a small premium for having it all in one place but this makes no sense to me. I'm going to talk with my guy and if any of my 401K is in WM, I'm telling him to sell. I went looking for a male 1/4 quick disconnect for my Tohatsu...

    The great loop

    I just started reading this book... The book has a chapter on "what boat to buy" and it is a very practical chapter. Specifically, it goes into maximum draft, beam and air clearance. I was surprised to read that the maximum recommended air clearance is 19.5'. The reason given was an old...

    Share your Storage Mods

    I did not want to hijack the other recent thread that was specific to the 23.5 so I started a new thread. I recently added this to my H26 (see pic) as a way of stowing my boat hook and winch handles. Share your clever ideas.

    Pneumatic Arm?

    Hello Hunter owners. For some mysterious reason, the pneumatic arm that holds up my front hatch (windshield) decided to die this weekend and now my hatch won't stay open. Anyone know the part number? I also have an email into the owners of this site to see if they have it. Fair winds, r

    Nautical Quiz....This could be a problem...?
