Re: Bow Strakes

The topsides aren't how they should be, nor is there enough volume in the bow, but the bow strakes give a basic idea of what they would look like. So, what do you think? My worries with something like these is that the IC might not be moving at a high enough speed for them to be truly effective as t...

US Website

Am I the only one that can't accept the US IC site? It might be this computer as it's pretty messed up, but I wanted to see if it was down or if its this computer.
