Another welcome to the website Hoppy............yeah what SP said about the speedo. Sometimes they just get plugged up with river stuff. I used a coat hanger piece of wire and just keep a piece in my tool box.
As a member of the United States Power Squadrons and a teacher for our ABC safe boating classes, if you and your wife ( and kids) have not taken a safe boating class I do recommend it. Go to www.usps.org
to find a class in your area. Beside all the info and boating knowledge that you will learn, you will save money on your insurance premiums.
Then get a Vessel Safety Check by one of our examiners to make sure your fine lookin boat has all the requirements that the Coast Guard and your state wants you to have on your boat. You get a sticker and a copy of the report, turn that into your insurance agent and get another discount. Look at all the money you have saved...........You can find that also on the website.
Hope this helps and congrats of your new boat!!
