The very first thing I'd do if I were you is to be sure that I had enough ground tackle to securely anchor in water 150 feet deeper than you plan to boat in. That ground tackle can be in two...

Be very afraid of the damage that raccoon can cause. You need to buy more snaps and fasteners now to close off all of the entry points. The critter will come back and it will make the interior look...

Unless you are buying a used boat from a private party, look for Arizona to collect the tax. They are very, very good at doing so and you'll have to provide proof that the tax was paid when you...

I had a set on my Jupiter 31 and was very happy with them. However, I was only running Yamaha 225's so my experiences with pitch and performance would be quite a bit different than yours. FWIW, I...

I'd like to propose a different fix. The Yamaha prop shaft and the Mercury propshafts that I have owned have taken the same size nut to hold the prop on - with one big difference. If they do still...

Rebuilt and salvage are effectively the same. Banks won't loan on them and they are difficult to insure for anything other than liability. If you are willing to accept the fact that you'll probably...

I see a disturbing trend in taxes. As more properties go into default and assessed values decline, municipalities seem to think they can make up the difference simply by raising the rates. Anything...
