Who gives a crap what vinnyf said. Your info on this board is much more valuabl than someone trying to make a statement. Wheather it be political or not, it was not boating related.

Let's all keep in mind this a boating forum.

Just one opinion. We need your advise much more than we need a political statement.

If ya want Thom to come back, just post a new thread with something like:

"What are the Garmin 2006 wire colors?"

Trust me, he won't be able to resist!!

Boy if you don't get on this board EVERYDAY you will miss something BIG.
What happen to Thom?
Lose him and you have missed one hell of a load of some of the best electronics info available on the net.

I know how we can get him back......just CRIMP the connection onto an INLINE FUSE and run that to your fuse block and WRAP the end of the wire around any screw that is hanging out there. Don't tape that up so you can see the connection when it starts to corrode.

That ought to do it.

Yep!! That'll work too. It's alot like fishing, just throw a little chum out there (crimped wires...), then, throw the real bait out, "How do I wire a Garmin 2006 to....?"

BAM!!! It will hit with vengeance, you'll have the 2006 wire colors, shrink wrapped 5200 connectors and tuperware wire terminating.....!!

First Genesis, then Trouty, now THOM. We should have a THT Hall of Fame for those that have come, left their mark, and gone.

He brings a wealth of electronics info to the board, hopefully we can all leave our political beliefs next to the keyboard and keep this forum about boating.

Can I just pee on a tree or something?


From his last episode, it pretty much sounded like he's burnt out on forums for a while. It happens to everyone. The rest will do him good.

Maybe he's just arranging the homecoming for Jessica Lynch's return to West Virginia.

Gil,
Once again politics has reared it's ugly head on a "non-political" forum.vinnyf didn't like his signature-American flag with non support of Mr. Bush. Why can't we just discuss boating?

Thanks Richie, I figured it had to be some dumb thing like that.

That is pertinent as she could come home on a carrier or warship.

Why did he feel compelled to make a political statement in his signature, and yet become offended when someone didnt agree with it? It goes both ways, wanna keep it non-political, then do just that, have a non-political signature.

I agree...that is; unless you don't like 'white' cats.

Cats are cool, I just like golden retreivers. And they are such big babies, cats tend to harrass them too much.

I agree Sea Dad.

But, he could just put his booger statement back on there and let it go. Or not sign anything at all, better yet.

Regardless of what he signs he is still a valuable asset to the forum.

We don't all have to agree on everything, thats what makes america beautiful.

Hey sorry about the double posts up above there guys.....don't know what happened there and that was a first for me but anyway, sorry to hear about thom and vinny having political differences.

All I know is the guys who need help with the electronic hook-ups and wiring them up are going to miss thom. He not only knew his stuff but took the time (lots of it) to write it here and made sure the guy who needed the help got it and got it straight.
Well maybe he does need a break from here for awhile and hopefully he will be back by the time I upgrade to a 182c.

.............Booby

SEA-DAD, hit it right in the money. If you don't whant Debate, then keep it to your self. I agree Thom is great, and he helps out a lot of people, but we have to keep what we don't whant to debate to our self.
