Re: Killing time

Just can't get past the Kalishnikov part. I don't feel comfortable with AR's. That's why I bought a Mini 14, :D Newt The Sig Sauer model 556 is great non-Kalashnikov weapon that is optionally chambered in 7.62x39. The nice part about the 7.62x39 is the ammo is cheap, much cheaper than 308. http://r...

Re: HMD19 Trailer Help

Marc, did you settle on a trailer? I didn't reply when you first were asking about trailers as my boat wasn't on the trailer yet. I have a roadrunner single axle, surge brakes, shallow v-frame, 3500# rating. I have towed the boat over some quite steep inclines/windy roads at highway speeds, using a...

Re: Will a FS14 still plane with my weight?

Newt you still don't get it please go back to the early part of Ken's post where he says that a good portion of hid time will be spent fishing out in the areas off Houston. He doesn't need a mud motor. The shallow draft of the FS14 and perhaps a jack plate will be all he needs. Tom. I get it very w...
