    2020 Hook Race

    Thanks for the post. I have always spent more; not less, on my safety gear. I am worth the up charge. I'll stick with Wichard.

    I had a similar problem. I opened up each rafter bay at the soffit.. Lots of air in, lots of air out. Problem solved.

    I almost feel sorry for the delivery crews bring Lake Michigan boats around to Port Huron. Little to no wind and LOTS of heat. Are there any flies"
