    New H2O sport

    Nice boat Every time I see a boat in the garage I miss my H20, I never had a big issue just with the fuel gauge , just treat it well and it will return the favor

    My season almost ended today...

    Looks like its time for a little mitigation at least far enough back so nothing touches your gem, At least you will have alot of fire wood in the coming seasons

    H20 vs. SSI

    Thats why I said look for another ssi with a tower Also I did pay double for mine but the admiral isn't worried about crushing the wakes anymore with her back, and either am I, The weight difference will make our old bodies last a few more years longer then if we would of kept the light h20, also we purchase the elite package that only came out for the 50 year anniversary. We like the upgrades from the entry level boat

    H20 vs. SSI

    I had the h20 now the ssi i would never go back, twice the boat just add the tower or get another ssi with a tower look for the 300hp they don't use as much gas as you might think, only at full throttle not at 3k rpm's

    Who has a pellet smoker/grill?

    I have a wsm smoker and a Traeger, both have the pluses and minuses, The traeger is great for holding a consistent temp, especially in winter, smoke flavor is weak, so I use what they call amazen tube , where you fill with pellets and they slowly burn for about 4 hours to give you a good smoke flavor,, Its super convenient in that it takes 10 minutes and your ready to go. I like a smoke flavor but the rest of our house just like a lite smoke flavor so if this is your family this is the way to go, don't believe anyone if they say there pellet smoker sears, Use a propane grill and go for 550 to 600 temps, Thats why I have a weber grill. The traeger does a great burger to, in about half an hour. Now the weber smoker is great Has great smoke flavors , uses water bowl to keep meat moist but one draw back, you can't set and forget,, you'll be up early in the morning adding wood if your doing brisket or butts need to adjust to temp swings and wind, They tell you to use kingsford ,but I don't know who does , Just hard wood for me and flavored wood chunks I Love using real wood compared to pellets but sometimes I don't feel like tending a fire for 20 hours I got my traeger at costco for 699 and my weber smokey mountain on amazon 299 I know there are better ones but you might get one and next year you don't use it again so if you do like then in a few years upgrade to a real good one,. I only smoke about 150 lbs a year so these 2 work for me, And a word of advice Buy a good vacuum sealer, like ones at cabbalas not the ones at costco or sams, they can't handle lots of sealing at a time and if you do 2 butts at a time use different rubs, until you find a great one then you can perfect it, every smoke you do the meat won't be the same as last time, its not like cooking a burger

    Proper Boat Launch Protocol

    This year we have a slip, but what we do isn't to complicated we back down the ramp, dunk the trailer so fender on trailer just covered with water I get in the boat lower trim start motor and while its warming up hang fenders ,put lines on rear and midship cleats toss lines to admiral on dock then lean over and unhook bowstrap back boat off trailer then put in neutral ,get off boat via swim deck grab rear line from admiral while she has midship line and walk the boat to end of dock, tie up , get in truck and park walk back ,untie and have a great day
