    I'm surprised by the bleaching of the paint even if you're running underwater most of the time.
    Make it simple, make strong, make it work!

      Bleaching is dead marine-grown. Starts the moment you surface a few miles from the channel. By evening time the boat looks even worse.

Mom and pop stores can accept that and get with the times or they can die a slow and painful death.

          Harsh, but true.

          They do plenty of business locally and in the surrounding areas. They also have a huge dirt track that have meets and sanctioned races most of the year. They don’t need to have a fancy website.
          There is no greater enemy than one’s own fears. It takes a brave man to face them.
