Honest Honda Mechanic in Fort Myers

I've got a 90hp Honda 4-stroke that needs some carb work. When I pump the bulb fuel flows from the silver disk on the side of the carb. And the boat won't idle. It runs when throttled but as soon...

Re: Two Pit Bulls Kill Lab

My .38spl would kick a pitt bulls ass.

My 17lb rat terrier wouldn't stand a chance. But he'd at least maybe be able to out run a pit bull. He's a super fast little sh!t.

Re: Fishing Flamingo

Mosquito repellent. Thermo-cells work great as long as there is little to no wind. Otherwise you be bathed in 30% det for your trip.

Re: Fort Myers FL

Fort Myers is a great area. I'd steer clear of Lehigh and Cape Coral personally. I just don't like them. But I guess it depends on where your job offer is located. The fishing and boating are...

Re: VOTE FOR BOATING ON NOV 4TH!

I voted yes for this amendment. Hopefully people will be able to figue it out in the polls. The amendments down here are worded so poorly

Re: Southwest Florida Guys

Cape Coral is a weird assed place. I'd only live waterfront/gulf access if I was ever going to live there.

Re: Bottom Paint slowing me down?

This is old (ish) bottom paint at this point. It's extremely rough and feels very thick.

To bad I don't have money right now to pay someone to professional remove the bottom paint. Ugh.

Re: Bottom Paint slowing me down?

Dang. Containing the dust from myself isn't hard. Containing it from everything else could be more difficult. Maybe i'll look into some other way besides sanding.

I just don't want to effect...

Re: Venice area roofers

Though now I can't even find them. I'd say go on Angie's list, pay the small subscription fee, and see whose out there. Choose three good ones, get three quotes, and pick the quote you like the...

Re: Venice area roofers

A-1 Aluminum is a good one down in Lee County. I'm sure they'll travel. Ribbed aluminum is a good choice. Even a 5V crimp galvanized roof will last 40 years down here. I've got a 5V crimp...

Re: Bottom Paint slowing me down?

So I ran my hand across the bottom paint and it's rougher than 80 grits sand paper.

Will a palm sander work to grind it smooth?

Re: who wears tyvek suits

You want to wear one over a suit? I've worn them over shorts and a t-shirt. They're pretty baggy.

Re: Admenment (16) Passed

I agree with you.

I guess in the end it comes down to how we vote. Unfortunately our choices are crap this year.

Always expect the worst from the government. Then when they actually do...

Should put an emoticon in to show my sarcasm.
