We just brought our (new to us) 2000, 1800 XR home this week and have completed one "lap" around local Lake Tarpon followed by - as I know all can relate, cleaning and polishing until we Christened it officially ours. Whew. Three years out of boating ... will take a few times to get those "scrub muscles" back.
So glad to have found this forum - tons of questions to follow. Anxious to learn from everyone's experiences.
