Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

know about your pain-I had alot when I fell off the roof one winter and crushed my ankle.pain meds made the room spin around.nothing worse than having your shoe laces hanging from your mouth.since you broke your throttle hand ,you might have to install a hot foot throttle on your boat :roll:

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

:D OH Goody! I just read something that stated in Minnesota,It's not illegal to not have a drain plug.I was worried about that on "Chug" since her Hull is lower in the front than the stern.Will have to rely on bilge pumps.I'm trying to make her as watertight as possible with deck drains an...

Re: The time has come...

:roll: maybe a faux finish would work or are you a purist? try it on scrap first.I might try it on "Chug" however it will have to be on a panel screwed over existing paint.purely decorative.Or you could start varnishing like the ol'Chris-Crafts.I think all boats that are used,need some kin...

Re: HP for Power-Row 13 1/2" SB Skiff

:D I like small motors too. however alot of those small ones don't have a reverse gear-they have 360 degree steering instead.I'm not sure how to hook one up remote steering .some of the 6 or bigger ones do have reverse.maybe the guy likes more power for heavier loads,I'm just fishing here. :D
