Exactly correct. I did fishing charters for years and never once was I asked by a customer if I was licensed or if I had insurance. In addition, CG is now being extra vigilant regarding drug testing...

I'm in SWFL. The combination of overfishing, red tide and shitty water coming down from Lake Okeechobee is truly a perfect storm. In a word our fishing sucks. I used to be an active charter captain...

All joking aside, always amazes me that people will spend $25,000 per motor and then will use an aftermarket oil filter or some no name brand oil that is not marine...

Not only is fishing in SWFL getting worse it's getting worse year by year. Between water quality issues and overfishing we now find that we are running further and further and catching less and less.

Every year about this time lots of reports about stealing saw palmetto berries. I wouldn't know what one looked like to steal. I guess they use them in OTC drugs for prostate health.

I can't imagine having just a 90 hp motor on a 26 anything. I read what Lprizman said earlier and I'm in his camp unless I'm missing something. My buddy has a 19 ft. GW with a 150 HPDI and even that...

I had a pair of 200 HPDI's on a Pursuit that I previously owned and I thought they were great motors. What they have going for them is they are light weight and fuel efficient and your motors have...

I'm in Pittsburgh with wind and rain. Unless you're seeing something that I'm not it doesn't look like a good day for Lake Erie.

I certainly agree with the first part of your statement but the later part is extremely harsh. "Swamp setup, a-holes, cheating customers" please explain?

I just looked at Mercury Marine's small outboards. A 20 hp weights 99 lbs. and the 25 hp jumps up to 157 lbs. Probably all the extra 5 hp would do is compensate for the extra 58 lbs. but the 20 hp...
