    Hey, nice guys!!

    How's the flag do up there ?? I've been trying to figure out a place to put my US Flag... that'd actually not be a bad place if the antenna can take it at high speeds.

    Its a cheapy flag so probably not long ...lol.....I'll get a better one when this one frays. Its a pretty HD ant. so cant think it would hurt it.

    There are lots of 270's on this forum! @reneechris14, what is that piece of starboard that is in the view of your platform....above your transom light?

    @rasbury that's where the cushion snaps on,so you can sit with a cocktail to watch the sunset.

    Took few pics while it was raining so quality of the outside pics not so great
    my underwater light is a screw in single diablo light.
    We discussed it on the forum during the winter.
    also to note water here is not clear at all.

    Sorry to hear that.  I just replace both my transom assemblies this past winter.  Not fun, but I sure do love the dry bilge now.  Good luck and keep us posted on how it goes.

    I have a broken transom bracket and its still not fixed. To make matters worse my mechanic's house burnt in a fire last Thursday and he lost everything. Great kid and I feel very bad for him. I most likely will be out of the water for another week or so.

    We almost went there today too, but decided on Deckers Landing  instead. Got a good spot right out front, burgers were friggin awesome, and the guy singing and playing guitar was really good.
