thanks guys. The Boat is a 1993 model. I got it at a good price. I'm in Onratio Canada, and we've currently got 3+ feet of snow in most areas, so spring is still a few weeks away. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there are plugs (bolts) under the swim platform that can be undone to allow any water collected in the hull to drain. ? When it's out of the water, I'm guessing that I should pull these for a bit and let it drain? It's winterized right now, so when it's time to prep it for summer I'll get them to really check things over as far as shaft packing and so on goes.
