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

My two daughters used to tell me to "take a chill pill". Good advice.
I have found in my "mature state" that it's better to take a hiatus when approaching a state of fatigue before messing something (or me) up.
As Jim Ed Brown used to sing: "Pop-A-Top Again".
Looking forward to G-10.

Re: Passing of MannanJ

He was a "good guy". A joy to talk with and a man who had done more than his part in making this world a better place.
He leaves a gap for us to fill and an example of how to fill it.

With 72 years of experience with "Murphy's Law", I'll not bet my butt on a total digital solution. Give me a whiskey compass and a mechanical path to the control surfaces!!!

Re: Tire pressure monitoring system

Well the TPS paid for itself again! This time a stray piece of a cotter key was the culprit.

How about flanking rudders on the trailer so Mom can back down the ramp

Bilge pump

You'd think high quality bilge pumps and automatic switches would be available. I've replaced dozens of them over the years and my assessment is they are all crap and you better check them often. That being said, I recently had one fail so I replaced it with two! I really didn't want to poke another...

I'd ground everything together. Overkill? I think "no-kill".

Re: Transom - solid plywood or planks

I would (and did in a similar circumstance) do double diagonal layers with Okume, then plank it.
