Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Short explanation: it’s the part where the CB enters the hull. It heavily reinforced and often a significant source of ballast. In a lot of boats it’s internal to the hull. JM uses external shoe.

At least that’s how it was explained to me. JM can correct me if I’m wrong.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

When we lose power at the house, it turns into a big party cooking all the fish stocked in freezers. You eat it it feed sharks. There’s always enough liquor. Just have to remember who that “people with problems” are and pace their consumption.

Re: Anyone Fishing?

they are kind of the freshwater version of barracuda. but you get to deal with sticks, lily pads, reeds and all kinds of things most saltwater folks don't think about too much (unless they are in the marshes). I've watch folks nab pike with a bit of foil on a hook. Saw the same trick for cuda. Hence...

Like who needs to be in some sort of endless soap drama? people with dogs that chase skunks? GB, she’s looking amazing. With the bigger damper, it’s hard to see what else could be a factor. I’m betting on success. On the plus side, no one can suggest that you don’t know how to get the motor plumbed...

Re: Folding windshield?

Just remember not all stainless is stainless. I’ve seen a number of stainless Jeep hinges suffer bimetallic corrosion.

Antenna idea is good.

Re: Folding windshield?

Kill the jeep hinge idea ASAP. Unless you get an aftermarket model you will get bimetal corrosion just like all the jeeps do (aluminium body, steel pin, hinge no hinge after a bit of water). Look for a marine quality hinge that will support the weight of the glass. Piano hinges support more weight w...

Re: Horns, no body is talking about them!?

Wound up doing that in Lil Bit. Luckily I had my watch as I chose to only grab my personal bag and not the full gear bag. Luck I had my rape whistle on the boat already or I’d have been a hurt unit.
