Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

I will line it with EVA foam. It is the same stuff that SeaDek uses but doesn't have the EP, I think. It's the same thing they use for yoga mats and foam rubber beer cozies. Art supplies sale it for art projects and it is very cheap. I think an 18"X12"X 1/8" is a buck. It is what I am using for a fo...

Re: Eric's C21

And I though the one wire in the back was for a heating element and all the other wires temperature probe wires. Shows what I know about fancy cooking. So how do you guys cook outdoors away from all the electronics?
