Re: Reverse chine and spray rails

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Michael, I’ve got Tessilmare 50 radial on my boat. Works well and is easy to put on. I went with white - shoulda gone with black!

I’m heading south with the boat on Wednesday to get the new trailer custom fitted - will give you a ring when I know what I’m doing.
