I price matched some stuff at the Nags Head store two weeks ago. They don't price match everything, anymore, just Walmart and Amazon direct. Maybe they've discontinued it in the last two weeks,...

Do a little research before you go to West Marine. If you can find the same item at Walmart or sold by Amazon direct for less, they'll match the price. Not trying to steer you away from the other...

You may be correct here. I don't know when Duck was incorporated as a municipality. I know that Southern Shores falls into this description, however.

I have to supplement my prior post after my fishing trip this weekend. By far, the tool that I use the most on my boat is my swiss army knife. I have a "spartan", which has a large and small blade,...

You should be careful about getting the electronics wet. I wouldn't hose them off, but I would use low pressure from a hose to clean off the motor, and not worry too much about a little water...

Terrible planning by the town is how it happened. That's the "crime" in all of this. The only reason the town would have to spend "millions" to create public accesses is that they didn't take care...

I totally agree with you on that point. The town would have to use eminent domain to acquire an access to the beach from a private property owner, and pay just compensation for the taking.

I would get a spray bottle, put a mix of 2/3rds distilled water and 1/3rd rubbing alcohol into it, and use that to spray the motor, and wipe up with a paper towel or something. The distilled water...
