    Cover vs shrink wrap

    I just got tired of the wind shredding my tarp cover every year. A 24 offshore with a hard top is a pain to buy a tarp for and get it to stay on all winter in the boat yard. Worth it to me to pay $300 and forget about it until spring.

    Radar Question

    Hello all....I run a 1982 24 Offshore. The boat is not as beautiful as she once was but I have spent a lot of time and $$ making sure she is safe and seaworthy. It is powered by a 2006 Evinrude 225 E Tec. Motor purrs like a kitten and I treat it carefully. 2 or 3 times a season, if the weather...

    offshore 24 fuel tank

    I have replaced them on 2 different Offshores. Cost for the main tank is about $1,100.00 on the south shore of LI. They have to be fabricated. Not too difficult to install. Try Alloy Metalworks in Farmingdale. Make a sketch of the tank and they will give you a quote.

    Wicked Tuna

    I grew up in Broad Channel NY....went to school with TJ Ott's dad for 12 years. He is a self made man...made his money in his own auto body business right after high school.

    Best boat you never owned?

    It was a 13 ft Boston Whaler with a 18 HP Evinrude that was for sale in our neighborhood when I was probably 13 years old. I looked at that thing every day for a whole summer drooling. Then one day my dad and I walked by it and he said "You know , I wanted to buy that for you, but I couldn't...

    Rocket Launchers

    Just FYI....I want to give a shout out to GW Performance Welding in NJ. I spoke to Glenn last Tuesday and ordered a 4 pole set of rocket launchers that would fit the hard top of my 1982 Offshore. It arrived on Monday and the quality is exceptional and the price was very reasonable. He is very...
