Correct, the OP asked us to label him, which resulted in the original conversation being about someone being pro or anti-gun. He can read my own beliefs and extend a label to label himself as he...

Let's get this back to the original conversation. As for me, I'm not pro-gun. Nor am I pro-knife, nor pro-hammer, nor pro-truck, nor pro-pressure cooker... etc. I'm not pro-any tool. Those things...

Furuno GP35 power-up difficulty

My trusty old GP35 is becoming intermittently difficult to power up. Sometimes it may take a dozen or more presses of the power key to get it to come on. Other times it comes on right away. Once...

I like the Mercury ones that are round with the skewer that goes through the water intake holes. No chance of slipping off while the engine is running. I've used these for years with great results....

It's different when it's kids, and it's especially different when it's kids who could have been us when we were their age, and it's terribly different when they could just as well be our own kids. ...

Honestly, I don't think anyone monitors 9 anymore for emergencies, at least in Florida. I've had a CB in my truck for years that is almost always on when I'm on the road. Until I recently changed...

18 miles in a 24' Chaparral. It's not the distance, it's the weather that matters. I could cover that distance in no time with that boat in good weather.

I've never had a straight inboard, nor a diesel, but I've had inboard/outboard for a long time and am a firm believer in flushing. My last boat was a Mercruiser I/O that I traded at 13 years old...

I believe the information about old Buck Pegg is all true. I've known those stories since I considered buying a Chaparral and researched the brand/company. Having said that, Pegg and his longtime...

Come on guys! I hardly agree that I deserve the title Admiral, but I will agree that the old Chaparral was a truly great boat. Some of the best days of my life were spent on that boat, and for all...

I'm afraid I can't answer that question for you. One thing I can say is that I would not spend the majority of my life savings on any boat, no matter what. I truly understand the need to get out on...
