    Went to wipe down Old Man Jeff's tbar this weekend and noticed a crack on his 8 year old FT tbar. Took wing off to find another crack.

    Will probably have Murphy turn it into a two piece. If anyone has a used MV-40 taking up space in their garage... Jeff is in the market

    Oh, and make sure you anchor your boat out deep enough as river level drops at night!

    Any guesses as to how long before the wing falls off once you see something like that?

    I am just thinking out loud if he got lucky, or if it may have ridden quite a while like that. The other bolt holes were all intact, so could it last for a while?
