Re: 24ft, Offshore Cuddy recomendation

I've got a 21' SeaRay Cuddy, it's an older boat, a bit heavy for her size but very rugged, very dry, lots of freeboard and rides well in the slop. I use it both fresh and marine and maintenance has...

Re: The sliding tongue is mounted

That is an awesome job. The glides I used are open stock from Surfix, Inc. It's a hard, ultra-smooth plastic and the sand doesn't stick or get embedded in it. Any sand in suspension in the water...

Re: The sliding tongue is mounted

Beautiful stuff - that trailer should survive the apocalypse. I am curious why carpet instead of glides on the cross supports? The carpet is about the

Re: Two shots and he ain't dead?

Hitting ANY moving target with a handgun at more than 15-20 feet is problematic at best for ANY shooter. LE officers practice on a range with STATIONARY targets at various ranges - even combat...

Re: Just want to say hi!!

Welcome to the insanity - there are plenty of 'butts' here - just wade through them and don't take any of it personally. There is definitely a great wealth of information here - got a question, just...

Re: Well this has to be the most interesting boat trailer I've ever seen!

There are a lot of good ideas in that rig.

Combined, they do seem like 'overkill' for the launch/retrieve process. I think the cover is impractical for anything other than a ski/speed boat and...

Re: Need advice on fishing boat mfg to rep in san diego

Steigercraft sure makes fine looking boats. They seem a bit on the heavy side for their size, but seem well powered to compensate and that could be a good thing, especially here in SoCal when the...

Re: Investigation Says Taser Trooper Justified

I didn't miss it - officer 'discretion' - not particularly discreet in this case and, granted, the situation did escalate as a result of BOTH using less than 'discretionary' good judgment - but...

Re: Investigation Says Taser Trooper Justified

Here's the deal on a traffic stop - this is pretty much universal philosophy in Law Enforcement. Sign the ticket or go to jail and post bond to get out.

Re: Smacked Radome

Thanks for your interest - the number on my dome is M88344, it is a 24" diam - 24 mile. I just might wait until after Christmas and do an upgrade to a used LCD unit. I don't use the radar all that...

Re: Anti-theft devices

The simplest deterrent to theft I have ever found is the 'bypass' kill switch. All that is required is a switch and a fuse holder. Interrupt the power (+) side of the ignition coil and install the...
