Re: 25P Trophy 4 Blade - Mercury Hub $350 - May Trade or Con

I need a good 4 bank marine battery charger. I have found a new one for a pretty decent price that I'll buy if nothing else comes along before I get some extra cash.

I would like (don't need) a 12 ga magnum shotgun for my son so he quits snagging mine when we go shoot birds.
