Hello Everyone

My name is Bill and my wife's name is Pat. We are retired and live on North Padre Island however we are now acting as caregivers for my 96 year old mother in Eufaula Alabama. Our boat (1984 Endeavour 40) is currently in the yard at Demopolis Alabama (three hours away from my mom's house) where I'm now replacing fuel and water tanks when I can break away from mom's for two or three days. We have been in boating many years however we always have questions and this board looks like a good place to get answers. It's great to be here!

Welcome to the forum. You'll find a lot of good company here. Taking care of family members is perhaps the hardest part of retirement and it's hard to stay boating at the same time. I hope you can squeeze in the time to continue your refit and make ready to get back out there soon. We have allot of answers as well as more questions so avail yourself of all there is here.

Aloha and welcome Bill & Pat. We have all the answers for you and if we don't, we'll make some up!

Hello, fellow Texans! My husband and I live in Waco and are currently searching the Texas coast for our boat. You'll find a lot of great people here! Welcome!
