Re: Boy! That SEC Sure Looks Tough

No excuses, Utah dominated on both sides of the ball. The loss of Andre Smith doesn't explain Utah's 31 points.

No Boise State trick plays, no lucky calls--Just a straight up ass kicking.

Re: Get Your Kid Interested In Boating

Yeah, looks like a light pole on the dock. Pole looks distorted (almost water like) due to the heat wave distortion from the exhaust. My guess anyway.

Almost forgot--great pic and congrats.

Re: How much damage did I cause?

I'm not proud to admit it, but I've done the same thing. I, like you, was very concerned. Don't worry, you'll be fine. This is what I did:

First, I added water absorber ("dri-fuel" I think) to...

Re: opinions on colored hull boats

If the boat is left in the water my vote is definitely to go with the lighter color. Dark hulls look beautiful, but once the uv takes it's toll the chalking and fading looks awful unless your...

RE: shiba Inu pups at 6 weeks

Paid $500.00 for ours. General range (at least around here) is around $400-$800.

Re: shiba Inu pups at 6 weeks

14-16 inches "at the withers" (shoulders) and 20-30 pounds. Yep, a Japanese breed very much like a small Akita in appearance.

Just got a pup last August (a black and tan) and he is the greatest. ...

Re: Can you use water instead of oil in your lower unit?

WOW! Never seen anything like that before. Obviously I'm babying my outboard way too much.

Re: Switching brands of 2 stroke oil

I switched to the pennzoil full synthetic last year with no problems at all. If anything I feel the engine idles a little better with less smoke (no huge changes however).

Mixing was a non issue....

Re: bonehead move--left fuel cap off after fueling, rain water in tank

Thanks again for everyones help. It's a poly tank so my concern is more for the engine, not the tank.

I purchased a hand pump--I've heard that sometimes electricity and gasoline go BOOM!

Re: bonehead move--left fuel cap off after fueling, rain water in tank

Excellent, thank you. I have easy access to my fuel level sensor and pumping the bottom of the tank seems easy enough--I think I'll give this a try.

I did go crabbing today (about 1 hr. run time)...

RE: bonehead move--left fuel cap off after fueling, rain water in tank

The cap was off for around 12 days and it has been raining off and on, at times heavily.

So far I think I'll stick to my original plan. Let the fuel water seperator do it's work and check/drain...

bonehead move--left fuel cap off after fueling, rain water in tank

I admit it , a pretty idiotic move but what's done is done. After refueling I forgot the fuel cap and now I am sure there is water in my tank ( it rains in washington).

I put in some dry fuel h2o...

Re: So just how long can a boat sit in the water?

There is now way you SHOULD get blisters in a few weeks. But as door kicker has referenced, there is at least one carolina skiff that developed horrific blisters after just a few weeks.

Re: Bubbles in Gelcoat

OK. Let me be a little clearer. I was referring to anti fouling paint--such as a copper based paint to prevent hard and soft growth on the hull bottom. I was not referring to barrier paints or...

I would not give up so easily.

RE: Bubbles in Gelcoat

This happened because you left your "BOAT in the water." What an absolute joke and a piss poor excuse for a company to use inferior resins. Blisters are not inevitable and should not occur if...

RE: I caught my first king salmon today

You're hooked for sure now. Nice fish.

I was fishing Pt. Defiance today and caught a nice 18-20lber. Problem was he was a native and I had to let him go.

First time I've had to do this and...

Re: 2 strokes rule

I may be a jackhole but I don't think it's because I own a large 2stroke.

Bought a new boat in 2000 which required 150-200hp. The only 4 stroke at that time was the 130 Honda (great engine, but...

RE: uniflite sport sedan

They have a reputation for being very well built, practical boats. I think they're also great looking--a boat that looks like a boat.

Blistering was a problem after 1973 as previously stated.

RE: Sea Fox Scuppers beneath waterline?

Scuppers are below the waterline, while at rest, and with no one in the boat--I think you're right to be apprehensive.

If a boat is designed this way then I would consider it a design flaw. ...
