    Boat tow harness - any suggestions?

    I'd like to have a proper tow harness setup in my boat in case I ever need to tow someone or get a tow - any suggestions on a specific model/design. To be clear I am NOT pulling water skiers with this - I hope to never need it, just want something better than a single rope. -tony

    Boat extinguishers - what do you use.

    I want to replace the extinguishers on my boats. On my salty boat the last boarding the coasties said my kiddie extinguishers were shitty and suggested replacing with more reliable ones. I like people who are candid. It's off season. Need two for the NR, 1 for the alumaweld. I do not want...
