    Any idea where I could buy a replacement galley container?

    I ordered a commercial rubber maid container off Amazon. Rubbermaid Commercial Plastic 7-Gallon Trash Can, Beige worked great. Can't find the part number but I bought it in 2017 so they may still be manufactured.

    Tow vehicle to consider!

    I towed for many years, first dodge then in 2014 I got an F-150 with 3.5 ecoboost. best truck I have ever owned, gets very good mileage when towing my pontoon unlike the Dodge Ram I had for many years. I would buy another ecoboost in a heart beat.

The winds are usually cross winds so I enter the slip at a speed that overcomes the winds, and I reverse the motor before I hit the front of the slip.
