    Just cause we have a bunch of airplane lovers

    It's interesting how there are two ways to accomplish basics. I'm beginning to believe that I was taught the less popular way on a couple, but they feel completely natural to me. Approach speed is a constant. I think most learn to point the nose at the landing point and control airspeed with the throttle(s). I learned to control the airspeed with the elevators and the rate of descent/glide slope with the throttle.

    I guess I'm in the minority, but like SST, I was taught to side slip into a crosswind. It always felt more natural to me because that keeps you lined up with the runway. It just takes a bit more power to keep your rate of descent under control. . . . . Any landing you walk away from is a good landing . . .

    Need Help on recent boat purchase

    Hi OCMD2, The concern is if I decide to get a slip, it will have to be painted, so do I just get the blisters repaired and the bottom painted regardless.  I'm a salt water guy, so those that slip in fresh water will have to weigh in on the necessity for bottom paint in fresh water.

    Are you concerned about the lack of bottom paint because of where the boat had been used or about your use of the boat going forward? A boat used in fresh water and trailered shouldn't need bottom paint.

    What is the full name/developer name of the Dark Sky you are using? There are several Dark Sky apps in the Play store.

    $1,200 seems high. The pump is about $450. About an hour and a half labor.

    AFAIK, it's stock. I'm the 2nd owner, but I'm pretty sure it came from the factory that way.

    Definitely go with the jacket! If it's a smaller dog, the backstrap handle makes it easy to grab him/her in the water!
