Kinda funny, that the stainless is only $1.00 more, noticed that they seem to have a sharpened&bal. option, but no price! wouldn't stainless always be the better choice? it is on fullsize boats anyway!

Yes, they have them priced but you have to really look to find it. I think that it was $60.00 balanced and sharpened.
I like the SS ones as they take a beating better than the Beryllium ones do but are harder to sharpen and balance.

The link is fine,

International Waters is now "Private" and the only way to view it is to become a member.
We also cannot link to Private web site, not my rule but RCU's rule.

Will,

just got a reply, he said he will be updating the prop list asap, that may give you the time you need to get your account approved.

if not, I will keep you posted.

Guys - not sure how many RCU site rules we are looking at breaking here.

This thread has been cleaned up - it has become the very reason why RCU does not allow selling and Want ads within the forum
