If they are saying corroded outdrives are causing your starting problems, then you sir, are being preyed upon. I would pay the haul-out fee and have it put back in the water. Then do some research...

The gateway is the right approach. You'll need to add an additional junction box since all of his existing ports are in use. An alternate approach would be to add (real-estate permitting), a...

What was the "extraordinary treatment"? They did their job, his career is over, and no one got hurt. I'd call that a good night's work. It must be heart-breaking to an LEO to have to arrest one of...

60+ foot powerboats never "come out of nowhere". While you were indeed the stand-on vessel, this reminds me of an old commercial about automotive safety. The tag line was "You can be right, and still...

This is the second post I've seen this week about this user. Clearly a scam artist, and apparently not a very good one.

My favorite game is when in the grocery store and encountering isle-hogs. I'll quietly roll up behind them, then in a loud booming voice say "EXCUSE ME". They usually jump out of their skin and...
