Personally, I got creative this weekend and sewed a cover for my Rocket.

Common sense has become so uncommon that I now consider it to be a super power.

Cleared a huge pile of rubble from the carport and brought the rocket in off the road at last.

Had a look at mahogany and I think you’re right. I’ve always thought the oak was too light. The mahogany provides nice contrast with the aluminum and makes a light colored outboard pop.

Thanks John.

White oak is a good choice but I prefer the look of mahogany which is also a good choice and is what Feather Craft as well as most other boat companies used.

This morning I polished the transom on my Vagabond. I can't let Rob make me look bad.

Steve,
That's just cruel to give John a false sense of hope.
Your Pal,
Rob
