I have seen this done on numerous construction sites that we're on. Put in gloves and move the nest to a nearby tree or structure and they'll be fine. Better than getting bird crap all over your...

That Albe is absolutely fantastic. I am banking on it being my next boat (it'll be a while).

BTW - Pursuit DC 266 has an 8'9" beam and with the swim platform rings in around 28' LOA. Also a...

It has been my experience that Edgewater lowballs their weights, so rigged it's probably not that much lighter than the Hydra. The motor may make the decision. Do you (mis) trust the etec 2-stroke...

I have a similar one and it is pretty useful. Gives battery life expectancy, bad cell identification, etc. Probably not as accurate as the ones in an auto parts store, but handy to have around.

Couldn't agree more. Dexcool is ridiculously susceptible to fouling when any contaminant is mixed with it, and especially when a non-compatible coolant is mixed in. GM actually recommends only...

This has been my experience, too. Aftermarket alternator or bracket that wasn't aligned but installed anyway. Vibration from bouncing wakes caused fatigue and that was all she wrote.

Still, I...

We used to put 6-7 people on our R227 with no claustrophobia at all, but 2-3 of them were kids around 10 years old. Wouldn't go much more than that unless it was a short cruise. That was tubing,...

I was hoping they would have this ready last year when I bought my EW, but it got delayed. Looks like a great boat on the website, though.

I don't mind seeing the authorities on the water and doing stops for cause, but when they're just out pulling over every single boat they see it is just ridiculous. Weekend before Memorial day in the...

The Robalo will ride better, but if the SH is cheaper and you don't like the location of the wheel on the Robalo, then just jump on the SH and go. As a second boat, I think it would do fine.

I would take 80 over 70 across PA. It is far less traveled. I would then probably jump on I-84 to cross CT to Groton.

It may add some time to your trip, but that's likely the cleanest route...

If you're going to be running offshore I would personally go with the bigger motor. A 150 on a 23 NS is not going to move you very quickly if you need to outrun a storm or if you need the extra...

I've had 2 covers covered under warranty by Carver over the years. Neither made it the full distance, but they did pro-rate and replace both of them. I felt like the deal was worth it.
