I don't know, but I've seen it around a couple of times. She is a beautiful boat with LOTS of wood. I saw it turn around in the ICW by Juno Park and I think that I've seen it up here in Jupiter.

I travel with the kids (11 and 9 this year) every summer. There is no video game or movies in the truck and last summer was the first trip with the crew cab so space was at a serious premium before....

Re: Need ideas - how to hold windows open

How about some of the gas lifters (like for a hatchback car or a boat hatch). They have ball and socket connections at each end to allow some freedom of movement. Obviously, you would need to use...

Re: On / off road truck tires

I've had Michelin LTX A/T (no experience with the A/T2 tires) in the snow with fair results. They were on the front of a 2wd Dakota and I never had a problem being able to steer. I put them on an...

Re: plastic repair

Most likely plastic welding will be the best way. I would check with a plastics fabricator in your area to find someone who can do it. I had a keel repaired on one of my sit-on-top kayaks. The...

RE: Show your dog

Dax the German Shorthair Pointer. He is a rescue of sorts since he failed out of hunting and then pestered his second owners to death! We got him at about 14 months old (his 3rd home not counting...

Re: brake wash system

I had a system on the used trailer I bought for my boat very much like the one you put together. It is a '94 EZ-Loader and the brakes were pretty old when I took them off, but rust wasn't too bad...

Re: Hitch Extender Question

I would look at my setup and see if there is anything else I could do to relieve maneuvering issues before relying on an extender. Yes, an extender reduces the amount you can tow. Sometimes by as...

Re: Ford F350 with 5.4

I get a kick out of reading how a v-8 gasser in a 3/4 or 1 ton truck is "a dog". I guess the guys that say this are either speed demons or have never driven an old work truck. I used to drive a...

There should be a link on the park's site, but reservations are through Reserve America (www.reserveamerica.com). But, I have to agree that you are probably too late for spring break.

Re: Ford F350 with 5.4

You should be able to find a lot of info about the 5.4 on the web, especially in some of the truck forums. There are a couple of versions of it in the '05s, the regular 5.4 and the flex fuel...

Re: "Certified" 2006 Expedition

I don't want to sound like I'm doubting you because you have obviously had a different set of experiences than I have. I've run the 4.6 in a '97 for 180,000+ miles and now have the 5.4L Flex fuel in...

Re: capping silicone seal

Piece of plastic like a sandwich bag and a rubber band usually works just fine for me. The tube usually lasts longer than the rubber band.

Re: Ford truck question

Re: Need help picking a set of 33" tires & wheels for my 04 Silverado 2500

If you have 17" rims, you might consider 265/70/17s as they were MUCH cheaper when I was pricing tires a few weeks ago. The diameter is about 32 to 32.5" depending on which tire you buy (brand, mud...

Re: Rechargeable AA batteries?

In solar lights, just use the cheap 600 or so mAh batteries, anything larger will just cost more and won't be charged properly.
