Yep, first thing I did was change the plugs and filters, but no difference. Wondering about the plug wires though. But with it running fine after warming and also fine the day after, I'm looking...

Could fuel pumps, either low or high pressure, get stuck from not being used for a week, and not fully perform until warmed up?

Please give me some ideas. Well maintained 2016 F150 with 1300 hours misses and stutters for first 15 minutes after a cold start, but only after sitting for a week. Perfect performance at WOT after...

Hard to believe, but these cheap alarms have 3 years in the boat and still test fine. Advantage is that you can zip tie the sensor at any height in the bilge you want, and mount the alarm portion...

Interesting that there seem to be two distinct camps here. One camp says they would give their best bottom fishing spots to any friend (I guess with the expectation that they would get passed on to...

Broadband radars just don't have a lot of range. It's not one of their advantages. My Raymarine Quantum 18" only picks up small center console boats (20 - 24 ft) at about 1.5 statute miles. And...

Mine "gives up" offshore if the current or waves are just too strong for it to hold close. Mine is only a 60 lb. thrust. To get about 50% more power, try the "power prop" from Motorguide, which...

Waypoint justice

Your friend was just enacting "waypoint justice" by redistributing your waypoints. It's not fair that 10% of the fishermen control 90% of the good spots. Remember that you didn't build that...

I just tested some 60 (sixty) year old Stren mono 10 lb, and it still breaks above the rated strength. It still has the label from the hardware store where I bought it as a kid.

Apparently, the Viking drafts about 5 feet and they can't reliably get it out of Big Pass. They have to idle down to Venice Inlet 2-1/2 hours. They probably need 3 bridge openings on the way. A few...

Epic trip from Venice, FL

My friend Capt. Randy sent this video of his trip last Tuesday out of Venice, FL. This is epic. I won't spoil it, but something big eats his barracuda.
