Re: Oil change suction pump

Re: Best polish to use

Thank you to all who have replied.

Gary.

Struggling to Learn how to sail!

Well we thought, we love boats, we want a yacht. Did some research and decided our first starter boat should be a bilge keel Westerly. Next thing we signed up to WOA. We've searched the market, looked at several boats and have now narrowed the choice down to a couple of Centaurs. One is local but so...
