  1. Sorry, I didn’t realize I owed you anything? I quit the thread when Photobucket killed the ability to share pics. That and I stopped coming around here because of some ppl that kept on creating unnecessary conflict here. So, If I didn’t answer it was because I wasn’t here. This forum has no picture capability and it’s simply wasn’t worth the hassle of putting up a web-host to post pics up. So the thread died. You can guess it was a failure, But you’d be wrong. Not saying I didn’t have things to work out, but it wasn’t a failure. I’d put my 24 year old boat up against a new one all day
  2. Eww, what storm was that? It’s shaping up to be a rough Spring.
  3. Wow, it all makes since now. You can certainly dish it, but you can’t take it. What you Liberals going to do when Trump gets re-elected? I can’t wait to see your reactions all over again! Now that’s some funny chit!
  4. Wow. Hey, I sell roofs for my sons company when I’m not running my company. I can get you an estimate to fix the roof, screens, a/c, gutters, fence and windows. Let me know.
  5. I’m out of habit of coming here. It was getting to be a mine field around here so I took a break and then learned how “groups” work on Facebook, and joined a bunch and found a lot of rude a-holes. The web is such a $%&# fest.
  6. I thought the new Mercury motors were aluminum too?
  7. Is trickling when they use air from below surface? If so I’ve seen videos of it working but as the ice grows close and it keeps getting colder...makes me cringe at the thought.
  8. I’m the same, boat all winter here. But less frequently on nice days. Typically for us is 5-6 hard freeze warnings and 1 or 2 may actually do harm. I tried to buy a boat from a guy that thought winterizing consisted of just pulling the blue plastic tabs, then he wrapped the engine with a sleeping bag, threw cover on and set in open yard. He got by with that for the winters of ‘06-09, but 2010, 3 weeks prior to me looking at the boat, we had a 3-4 day snap that lasted 4 days with a high of 27 deg. It broke my heart. I wanted that boat. I’d still take it over mine today. So sexy. Sorry
  9. Let me start by saying our boats are very different but should be about the same weight they’re close to the same length. So there are some similarities. My boat rides deeper and has a true V all the way to the transom which requires more hp. Your boat has I believe the wide tech hull which has a flat spot on the bottom at the transom giving you more lift Which requires less power. My boat is stubby, yours is slimmer with same girth and another foot or so in length. Stubbier needs more power. Mine has a curry, which is heavy, but also helps balance weight better than a lite open bow. You
  10. I’ve had to fix one. It was back when I used to let other men touch my lady under the bonnet. I know, and yes I’m still ashamed. Plus it put me back 2.7 herd. ...two years later the engine had to come back out for a “minor underwater strike” a few weeks earlier, that was 4.3 herds. Bout now, I got to thinking that fella was sure spending a lot of time in her bonnet. Gave me pause. I finely got wind. The gig was up! But it was too late, at only 100 hours since the last engine pull. I lost another coupler. For the third time in 5 year period the engine was again needed his hands all
  11. I’d say you are making a good decision, even though I have CChoice it’s only because it was already on the boat. Don’t get me wrong, I like it, but I also like a whisper quite boat sometimes, and once you have CChoice, it’s never whispering. Dont worry too much, your boat will find many places for which to spend your money.
  12. I was wrong, the captain was rescued, here’s the article: https://www.dallasnews.com/news/news/2015/08/11/womans-body-recovered-after-boating-accident-on-eagle-mountain-lake
