Thumbs up G'day from Western Australia

I visited the cruisers forum today and ended up reading so many interesting threads that i found myself still reading an hour later. The decision to join the forum was easy, the collective knowledge is invaluable. Regards Brad P.

Thanks for all the positive posts. I can't believe you all have a past that involves boats, Perth and the eastern Indian ocean. I dont know if this is the correct place but have any of you had experience, good or bad, with boat windscreen wiper systems. My power boat has 20yr old single speed very tired wipers. Plan to upgrade to 2spd heavier duty units that will drive pantographic arms for better coverage of glass. Would appreciate any thoughts/preferences brand wise for quality etc. Regards, Brad P.

Thought so ..see I always thought (and I think that wheels might agree) that ferro boats are not so much of a footpath but a Freeway !! (or at least a reasonably charged toll way. : )
