    Yep - I'd want at least 25 ton, though theoretically my boat is 20 ton. I think I'd still want some safety factor. That being said, it should do most boats up to about 40 ft. no?

    DMZ stands for DeMilitarized Zone. What I was on about is that the US-Canada border is hardly demilitarized - at least on our side.
