funny you should say that. i was peeking underneath the other day and i saw one hunk of rubber that looked dried and rotted and the one on the other side of the front end looked newer. i will have to look upp a diagram of the underside of it. Things are new to me...

Yes the Barnegat Bay area is tricky
