Ed,

I'm sure you know this already, but I'd be *very* careful dealing with Water's Edge - I've heard a lot about them, and ain't none of it good.

As for the kevlar, I'd think the factory (or Brownie!) could tell you from the hull number. Good luck on the search.

Mike

Mike,
I'm not that interested in the boat since Diane insists on a full cabin. You don't get many opportunties to see a Top Gun around our area so I try to see whatever is there.

If I sold mine I'd be on Lucky Strike's boat lift the following morning waiting for Bobby to get home from school.

Have you been on both? We have overnighted on both and I'll take a covergirl cabin anyday. They are alot more comfortable to sleep on. I've seen on some older guns were the cabin liner will rattle loose and move around.

Mine is kevlar and it definately has more of a drum sound that the fiberrglass, I just thought it was cause it was a covergirl cabin.
