Re: Justin's P19

Re: Hope2float's P-21 in Jackson

Hey all its been a long time since I posted. I would like to report that the boat is GREAT! It has done everything asked of it.

Re: Hope2float's P-21 in Jackson

Hey all, I'm back and I have been lurking around. I see some real good work going on here as usual. Justin the answer is yes I am still out here. The boat was stored inside for the winter.
