    My 1985 Ranger bass boat looks it with dull fiberglass. A friend told me about a spray on glaze that will at least bring back the shine.

    Agree! Will have to pick up a pair since mine were stolen. Better than nothing though I do have to take the tailgate off so I can see them better. What a pain!

  17. Takes forever lining up ball to hitch - any ideas?

    I don't want to smack the ball against the hitch so I have to get out of the truck when by myself and inch closer. If off to right or left, I have to hope I can straighten the trailer closer to the...
