    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.

    Thru Hull Fitting Help

    Hello All.......I have a 1982 24 Offshore and on my last few ocean fishing trips I noticed I was getting a lot of water in the bilge.
