    Just cause we have a bunch of airplane lovers

    I think I remember that! It was SO obvious. LOL! Speaking of military aviation, you should check out this simulator below. They have a few free aircraft, but the A-10C and F/A-18 are TOTALLY worth the extra coin. Get you a good throttle and stick and check it out. I have Oculus Rift S (Virtual Reality) and it's like you're sitting in the cockpit! www.digitalcombatsimulator.com

    Yeah, I was more speaking of the ones in the first photo and the last. The look more like parade floats than something that can fly without some serious electronic tech. I know nothing about the arms trading game so I certainly can't comment intelligently about that topic. I'm guessing we have varying levels of allies...some we will trade certain tech with and others that we don't. I mean, Russia is an ally but we can't even have a telephone conversation with them!

    250, 270, or 280? Help!

    Hi Tim! There's a chart somebody made on this forum, but I can't seem to find it. I downloaded it and can send to you tonight when I get home. The chart shows the various length and beam of each model across different year models. Chaparral did make it very confusing! My 250 was the one you test drove. Search my profile on here and you'll see lots of info on the 250 that we may not have discussed in person.

    I wonder if their drones are even operational.

    6 pin Clarion remote

    I'm not sure how many pins there are, but I pulled the Clarion remotes when I upgraded Sold one of them, but can't remember if the other one is still intact. 2008 Signature 250. Same remote?

    Foot throttle

    It's probably an Arkansas thing!

    Foot throttle

    Yeah, I can't remember how the hand throttle functioned on my Dad's boat. It may have just been a shifter, but the boat came like that. It was not added and he purchased it directly from Ranger new. Believe it had a Mercury 250 OptiMax. Lots of problems with that motor as I recall.

    Foot throttle

    My father's bass boat had one. It was a Ranger boat.

    Alaska Fishing Trip

    Nah, both photos are of the same thing. That's all ice! Guide tells me it's a silver salmon, and a couple Google searches confirms it. They were all turning red as it's late in the season. We turned several loose and only kept the least red ones. That Eagle video is awesome. That would be so cool!

    Haha...I've been growing that grey hair since I was 18! 30 years ago! Yeah, I need to crop up the Bald Eagle. I knew you would like that one. The Silver Salmon in the photo was just shy of 10 pounds. He really put up a flight that lasted about 5 minutes or just a bit more. He was fun! No, not fly fishing. That was caught on a crank bait. We were using those and some salmon eggs. The "lava flows" is actually a glacier. I'll post a short video below to give some perspective. Our pilot gave us an incredible tour! https://i.imgur.com/yfJApvS.mp4
