Welcome aboard the CF bowlerfamily!
I moved your post to its own thread to get better visibility.
When you are looking at a list of threads you can click the button that says "New Thread" to start your own.
Or if you are reading someone else's post and want to add on you can click, "quote" to reply with their message quoted on yours, "reply" to simply reply to the previous post, or "quick reply" to quickly respond to a post without access to the animated smilies like this ---->
There is a section here called "monohulls" where boat specific questions might get answered faster but it's ok to leave your question on the skookum here.
Once again welcome to the forum and have fun and don't worry if you click a wrong button. We are here to help and sometimes we do before anyone notices
