      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

omg I am sorry I almost never look on this page lol. umm it turned out ok. the floor it wearing off which I thought it would. but otherwise it seems to be holding up fine. If you guys do do it. i would say to put a excelerator into the paint to help it cure faster. otherwise after i painted my boat i could not use it for like a week.

I have also used a piece of cardboard and drawn cattails on it and cut them out. Then I use it as a stencil with a different color. It makes for a good cover up for any scratches.

My buddy just painted my 14' boat and he used automotive paint through a cup gun....had to also get a reducer and hardner and the mixing ratio they gave us was 8oz paint to 1oz harderner and 1oz reducer but we went with 2oz reducer to get it to go through the gun......it looks amazing!! quick dry time.....we are putting it back on the trailer tonight!!! now we will have to paint the trailer later this summer

I done the outside last spring, Tried the boat out before season noticed a few small leaks. (this thing was junk 5 yrs ago) I bought the rubber coating much like what used in truck bedliners. Worked great, also toned down the sound of the boat.
