Navarre Newb

#1 Post by TWB » Tue Mar 20, 2018 5:43 am

Hello from Navarre, FL! I'm new as a member, but I've been lurking and enjoying the forum for about a year. Finally pulled the trigger and just bought a 2004 Landau 24' toon with an '04 Merc 75 that will become a restoration project. It's been sitting on a lift on the Sound, untouched for about 9 years. Confident that we can get it cleaned up to use one season, then (hopefully) the fun begins from the toons up. I really enjoy reading the posts and stories, and look forward to tapping into the brains of you guys who have already found what works and what doesn't. I expect I'll only have about 2,846 questions.

Thanks for having me!

Thanks for the welcome, guys. I've really enjoyed reading the great information from such a close-knit family.
Curtiscapk - I've read your restoration and, like most I'm sure, felt the anticipation as you finally got it in the water! I'm looking forward to that feeling.
ROLAND - After I retired from the service (30 yrs ARNG), I was fortunate to get a job with a school district here. We love it!

Truly glad to have found this wealth of knowledge!
