I've picked up most of what I know here and google. I also had a couple conversations with hurricane in Canada but that was mostly specifics about my boat, not a lot of history offered from them. I tried to get the zodiac to Willard connection verified but they didn't answer.
I launch out of Morro bay mostly. Thanks it was a lot of work for one person who's never done anything like that before.
Ryan owns a sea tow franchise in Florida so he's got several big gorgeous ribs for work boats. Look for his build thread, it a whole different universe from mine.
