Re: Food

Do you still need some breakfast items?
Jim Jathro and I can do waffles and sausage on Friday and Saturday AM. We have done this in the past but there seems to be a lot of breakfast options.
If we have enough breakfast, we could do something else.. Let me know.

Re: Who's Going and Where

Bill,
Jim Jathro's (TwoJs) friend cancelled and I moved up to cabin #10.

This means #13 may still be open.

Re: Michael's ZIP

Mike,
I placed three separate orders from them and had no issues.

I ordered my Faria gauges, fenders, and a sun shade ( A Taylormade square umbrella. ) They had the best prices.

Re: Malahini in Ireland

I would put the 3/4" plywood on the inside for strength and the thinner oak on the outside for looks.
Plywood is more stable and stronger in all directions.

Re: Ski tow boat builders... lend me your tips and wisdom!

You also asked about chop. As Peter mentioned, the Ski Tow is a shortened Malahini, (or vice versa). It does OK in light chop, but if the chop gets a little bigger you can get some pounding and wet from spray. Our lake can get pretty rough at times and you cannot cruise on plane in those conditions....

Re: Kobalt Socket Set Lowe's Only 15 Bucks!

Yes, thanks for the tip. I bought this set on Friday. The shelf price was 19.95, but it got marked down at purchase. Kobalt has odd shaped sockets that work on a variety of different shapes and sizes. Many of the sockets work on SAE and metric sizes and are marked with both sizes. You get many more ...

Re: Manitowish Waters

I had to laugh at the Grasshopper reference. In Wisconsin, Grasshoppers and Pink Squirrels are always thick with ice cream. Oh, and brandy Alexanders as well. And, if you order a Manhattan and don't specify, it will be made with Brandy. I believe Wisconsin is the biggest consumer of brandy in the US.
