  1. All Chrysler products seem to rust out soon. You can see them going down the road every day. Denny.
  2. A lot of times the seat cushions are held on with wide strips of Velcro. Also in the deep crevasses, like where your blue and white come together they will put screws in there. Hope this helps, Denny.
  3. As in everything else, usually you will get what you pay for. A good quality after market wheel will be expensive, for the fact that it is not specifically a replacement for your Chap. Denny.
  4. If you have have a copy in your pictures on your computer, go to (Postimage) and you can up load it from there, that is where I get all my photos from. It is fast and easy, I have up loaded sometimes 15-20 photos at a time, in 5-10 minutes. It puts Photobucket to shame. Denny.
  5. Hey brick, when are you going to put your pretty girl dressed in yellow back up for show? Denny.
  6. To be safe put them away some where when trailering. A good canvas shop can add straps and or snaps. I have seen it go both ways. Denny.
  7. Firestone Destinations, I'm on my 2nd set, good wear. Denny.
  8. Don't remember if I caught any fish or not, but this made my day. Denny.
  9. I was about 3 miles off shore. I was facing North, when I heard this whooshing sound coming from behind me. The next thing I knew was, my whole bow rail, covered with Blue Jays. It looked like birds all lined up on a telephone wire. By the time that I realized what had happened and got my cell phone this was all that was left of them. I don't know how many of them there were, but there was a lot of them. They appeared be heading N.West out across the lake. In the direction that they were headed, they still had another 5 or better miles to go. It also made me think about how wonderful today's technology is. Years ago I never would have been able to capture this great moment and share it, because of not having a cell phone.
  10. Add foam rubber to the lower portion? Denny.
  11. I posted a web site that will allow you to post pics. at no charge, all you need to do is give them an E-mail. Denny
  12. It's funny when you experience nature, it seems to make everything alright again. Denny.
  13. I have been in areas where the idle speed is posted at 6oo rpms, my shifting rpms are 450 Denny.
  14. Sorry, wrong post. Old men don't multi task. Denny.
  15. There are true seamen, and then there are people that own boats. Doesn't matter which you are, it's just about being there. Doesn't matter if you tie up with a rope, or a line, just as long as your girl is secure. Most of the people that I take boating are land lubbers. I was corrected at the end of the last boating season when I asked a blow boater that was preparing to leave the dock, if he was going to get in that last ride. His answer was, we are going for a sail, and that was how I found out that you don't take a ride on a sail boat. Denny. (they will mess them all up ) The one thing I have learned about golf, you never touch another man's putter
  16. I read a post earlier this morning and I didn't have time to answer it, so I thought that I would get to it tonight, but it is gone. I can't find it here, or in boat or dock talk.They were asking about installing a windlass on their boat, so I thought I would tell them about mine to maybe give them a few ideas. Does any one know where it may have gotten to. Denny.
  17. From this To this Only 3 more months till spring, boat shows are just around the corner. Not only for the holidays, but be safe always. Denny
  18. They are reproductions, that is why they are similar looking. They were listed as Mercury, got to love the internet. My shifter from 1985 still works and looks good.
  19. If you can find a phone# call the company that made it and see if it is adjustable, that is where I would start. Denny.
  20. Does yours look like either of these? I went on the internet and entered this on the web search ( Mercuriser 3000 throttle control unit) and these came up. If these are not it, at the top of the page, click on images and scroll down until you see the one that looks like yours, click on it and then click on visit. The page will open up to who posted it. Usually it will be a vendor that has it. Good luck, you are looking for a 20 year part. It is more then likely a reproduced part and may not be built as good as original equipment. I would ask them. You might also check E-bay, or a used boat parts yard, maybe a Mercury dealer will have one lying around in the back room, or ask them if the model was super seeded to a newer model, they do that all the time in the automotive industry. Did you try taking yours apart to see why it is sticking? Denny.
  21. You probably seen our Lake Erie water snake. Lake Erie watersnakes grow to 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet in length. They are not venomous. Habitat - In summer, the snakes live on the cliffs, ledges and rocky shorelines of limestone islands and forage in the nearshore waters of Lake Erie. During winter, Lake Erie watersnakes hibernate underground.
  22. Finally after a lot of trial and error, I have found 2 hosting web sites. 1 for photos and one for videos, and with great customer care. The photo is (Postimage) if you just up load you can send your photo. When you close out of their site your photo will be gone. If you give them an E-mail and set up a (free) account, your photo will be saved until you delete it that way you can build a gallery or not. The video is (Vimeo) they have a basic account that is (free) you have to set up an E-mail account, and with it you can up load up to 500MB per week, for ever, and your videos are saved. Next they have a (Plus) account, it is 72deer per year, if you pay by the year, or you can pay one month at a time and it is 12deer per month. With it you get 5TB, per week and a lot of other features. This video took 56MB So all of you that have this, including the guy with that (pretty girl and trailer) that are all dressed up in yellow can show her off again. It feels good to be able to share again. Hopefully I have opened up a couple of doors for some of you. Denny.
  23. That is why I like where I boat, there is nothing in the waters that will eat me.
  24. Not really sure any more. 25 years ago when I bought the boat I set up a deviation chart when I added the GPS, and before all the other goodies. I found a large spot on my local river that was calm and free of traffic. I would run some distance and take the readings of both. Then at 10 degree increments I would repeat the process until I completed my 360 degree circle.Yeah, it took a lot of patience and time, but I was on the water and it was a warm and sunny day. You have my curiosity Dan, I will check it out this summer to see how close it is now, after some 25 years of add-ons. It is comforting to know that you have a back up if you need it. Denny.
  25. I think that I have found the answer to up loading photos to our forum. It is a 3rd party site that does photos only, and it is free.You just need to give them an E-mail and they will send you a password.There is no advertising attached to your account.
