The build is 1/2 the fun of the project. The hull won't be expensive or hard but it's all the little odds and ends that add up. Rebuilt engines, tranny's, etc. would be fine, this will probably be...

Cost for diesel inboards?

I'm seriously considering building a 28' steel semi-displacement for some long range trips and am working out my budget numbers. I've got all the tools and the skills and have an RV that I can strip...

Re: Marine Electronic's Security Question

Most electronics (not marine but electronics in general) these days come with a spot to put in a Kensington laptop lock. You might look and see if there's one on there (looks like an elongated oval...

Re: Gold XL9 Navionics

If you get it, you'll also be able to get the Fish'N Chip as a free bonus (there's a flier in the package about it). From what I understand, the shallow water definition for the Florida area on that...

Re: RAYMARINE WARRANTY!! beware!!

My RL70 recorded the powered on hours. If I remember correctly, you go to it the same way you viewed the installed firmware. I'd be surprised if the E series doesn't do the same, it's relly a...

Re: RAYMARINE WARRANTY!! beware!!

I think Ray handled this poorly but here's what I understand from what you've said, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Raymarine E vs. C Series

There are some refurbished E120 display heads available right now that are about the same price as a C120 (around $60 +/- difference). They come with a warranty, etc. so if price would be the only...

Re: Promised Rant: State Farm Boat Insurance

If you're eligible for USAA, they're the best I've ever used. For auto, you just drop your car off at the body shop and tell them you have USAA and never have to deal with it. For homeowners, we've...

Re: Rant: West Marine Credit Card

We have a card with Juniper as well. The rate on it is goor (like 8%) so we use it but we also pay it off, or very close to it, monthly. They don't like that. We've gone round and round with them...

Re: gardening help

I hate those damn worms. I put my plants in pots this year hoping that by using fresh potting soil and having the pots on the patio I could avoid them. The only think I hate more than those worms...

Re: Funniest SNL Skit

My favorite was Phil Hartman and the Chameleon XLE. Farley's Matt Foley was funny as well. SNL just hasn't been able to match the old Murphy/Akroyd/Chase/Belushi/Radner or the...

Re: What kind of paint would you use? Wood garage door, submersible

Why not epoxy coat them like you would if you were building a stitch & glue boat? A couple of coats of epoxy, sand to smooth and then paint with whatever since the epoxy would be the moisture...

The thing that caused that verdict was the internal McD memos about how the coffee was being served at such high temperatures (180 - 190 degrees) that an incident like this one was ineveitable and in...

Re: 2006 Sea Chasaer problem

My suggestion it so buy a Fuel Flow Meter and use your GPS for the speedo. The gauges that you're looking at are really very unreliable. I have a 2002 model of the same hull and both gauges work on...

Re: Can't fish, let's hunt

If you're getting that close anyway, and you really want a challenge, try using a bow. I've been bow hunting for 2 years and have yet to kill a deer with an arrow. I've missed a few though, funny...

Re: Can't fish, let's hunt

Opening day is Sat here in Tx. I'm ready but just got some pictures off my game cam on Sun and it looks like I've got a pig problem to deal with before I get to look for Bambi. I don't mind the...

RE: check out the gas prices in texas......

@ .45 a gallon. .20 road use tax and the rest is federal stuff.

In Houston, it's more like $2.40 - $2.60/gal depending on where you go but there are some outlying areas that are at @ 2.27 or...

RE: Raymarine DS400X: Yes or No?

I really like my DS400x. The screen is small and bigger is better but if this is what you can afford, you won't find a better unit for the money. It's as good as anything else I've used (with the...

RE: T-Top almost done!

Thanks.

I actually plan to put a rope across there for grabbing at the helm. It's sort of hard to describe but I've seen/used it on a friend's top and it works really well. Basically, it's a...

Re: T-Top almost done!

No, I took it to an upholstery shop for the canvas. I don't know how to sew! :)

I liked the way they laced it so there aren't any gaps around the edges. It's tight as a drum too, you can...

Re: T-Top almost done!

I couldn't thru-bolt it with backing plates, the stringers run all the way to the bottom of the deck right along where the floor mounts are. I used a lot of 5200 and bolted into the stringers, it...
