I have always said, there is speedo speed, the "i swear" speed and GPS speed. The last makes most humble.

Raylar kits, parts and engines for the 496 should have an honorable mention, but they don't have the look and feel of those TWINS GLH keeps popping up with! Although Carol Doda actually started that look back in the late 60's in North Beach, San Francisco!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Very true. Best thing for scuffs on vinyl.

I'll throw out a another new one... the Guardian system. Not sure if its within the last ten years but it saved my butt a few times when I took the family's SeaRay out a few years ago.
