I'm pretty sure using glycerin was what killed the old Hydra-Sports compass. Either that or something is different about this Ritchie Super-Sport compass. I put it right next to the garmin and it...

I ended up buying a new Ritchie Compass. I think it was the glycerin. Wrong fluid.

I'll have to look closer at the signs. Hadn't noticed that before. I can't believe I've been doing that for 30 years and not one time ever got stopped. Surely I've done it right in front of...

Your boat is identical to mine but I don't have a tee top. You might consider removing the rod holders on the console and installing a cooler seat. I use the crap out of that and it's the best seat...

I know a guy who simply decked his jon boat with marine plywood and covered it with carpet. Ran it for years. It actually was a pretty nice center console for the flats. He put his bait wells in...

Don't rev your motor in neutral. If it won't idle or dies under power then you have an issue, if it doesn't then don't worry about it.
