I wouldn't worry about an occasional sneeze. It's a thirty something year old 2 stroke. Newer Etec? Then yes, I'd be concerned.

I got my Master's (Infosec, not MBA) later in my early forties. I don't regret it. You'll get more out of it than someone just out of college, as they have no real experience yet.

Coming from a Ridgeline, I'd pick the Ram.

That is not a slight on Honda or on Ram. I had a gen 1 Ridgeline prior to my Ram. Have had Chevys and Fords too, so I'm not really brand loyal.

Yes. Water removers (aka drygas) work by absorbing water. Which is what ethanol does, until it reaches the point that it cannot hold any more water.

There's really nothing to "counter" it. There are two basic problems with using alcohol.

I wouldn't overlook this option. Cheap to buy, wicked easy to mount, and takes up no space when the kayaks aren't in it.

On a tablet or phone, download the netflix app.
Sign in, browse movies, and pick the download icon.
Watch from device, or find a way to push to your tv.

Many other options are less kosher.

I just don't flush except for when the boat 1st goes in the water for the season. Works even better than muffs or a barrel.

Let me elaborate.
1) We have large temperature swings. It was 51 degrees when I drove to work this morning.
