You're welcome... (Actually the bar must be set pretty low because they let me join a couple of years ago....)

Anyway, to the forum!

Where do you boat? I'm on the Portage Chain of Lakes in Pinckney.

Default New from Michigan

Hello All, figured I should introduce myself after lurking for a couple weeks. Already gleaned lots of good info here, great forum. Recently acquired a 1980 Predictor w/ 90hp I6 Merc. Replacing interior and doing some very tedious gel coat restoration, goes a lot faster watching on YouTube . Anyways, will have a few questions that I couldn't answer by searching.
