    trying to get a pic upload to work but they just disappear. maybe the easier way to ask is, can someone see if the "attwood" name is on the front or rear of their vents?

    No problem! Sunsports (and bigger Supras) IMO are the best older boats for surfing because they have higher freeboard than other brands. Itís a great start on a budget. Let me know when you get one...
