    Leave it alone... 9 ft. is perfect. 8 footers are little plows, and 7-1/2's are good for doing sidewalks or something.

    Want to trade that 9' for an 8? Just the blade, nothing else. We would have to meet in the Portsmouth area.

    I'm all set if it's rotted through. I'll wait to see the pictures to be sure. I actually can meet you down your way. I have to get out to Provincetown, so we can meet in the Braintree area if it all works out. I'll look for those pics this weekend.

    Yeah I know....The last time I went out there I was at a pizza joint getting some lunch with the kids, a couple of older ladies sat next to us, we even chatted for a bit about fishing off the docks, anyway, by the time I left, I realized those weren't ladies! It's a beautiful town, and it's a great place to vacation. There are a few good bars to go to if you now what I mean, but as far as the rest of it goes, I avoid it as much as possible.

    The kids grandmother lives out there. She's not going to be around too much longer so I need to bring them out there to see her.

    There you go making it all serious. I hope you have a good time down there. I basically spent every summer in dennisport growing up and we'd make the trip out there every now and then to see the scene!
