Re: Traffic circles (Roundabouts) cause tornadoes

If anyone read the Second LINK, they will find that some high-paid scientists believe that a Butterfly, flapping its wings in one part of the world, can cause a Hurricane in another part of the world, weeks or months later. It is called Chaos Theory. Interesting. There is more than we do not know, t...

Traffic circles (Roundabouts) cause tornadoes

Thought I'd pique your little brains with this discussion. Traffic circles (Roundabouts) cause tornadoes..maybe??? https://triblive.com/news/pennsylvania/pennsylvania-man-says-rise-in-tornadoes-caused-by-traffic-circles/ Sounds nuts...but.....there is the theory of The Butterfly Effect to consider. ...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

Well, you wanted it to open. You did what you had to do..... NOT.

Sorry, but we are all guilty of using too-large pliers/hammers to fix some small thing that is resisting.

They say the price of Experience is making a lot of Expensive Mistakes.

Re: FORUM UPGRADE ISSUES

Hmmmm I may be wrong on this, but, under the old system, I thought that ....after I received an email notification of a post that I am involved in, that when I clicked on the LINK, that the system opened up on the newest addition to the thread. I think, on the new system, it opens up at the TOP (old...

Painting over the original Lowe paint

When I purchased my used 2006 Lowe 1756 a few years ago, it had a black hull. Looked neat. The owner said he had painted it. I ASSUMED that he had properly prepped the hull before painting. Yesterday I was forced, by the wind, into rubbing the side of the boat along a dock. An entire one-foot high, ...

Re: fishing partner

Being a guide....Ha Ha great story. I think you probably hit it on the head. I was in sales. 98% of my customers I loved. 2% made for a bad day. Working with the public, no matter what you do, is not for everyone. I imagine that your wrenches don't talk back, and they do what you want them to do, to...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

Nicely done. You will appreciate all of your hard work when you slime the boat with its first fish (after the big refinishing job, that is!). Kind of late to even mention this...but..considering all of the trouble that you had taking the old finish off, one wonders if an inexpensive Harbor Freight S...

Jim, I went to Notifications as you suggested. One marked for email notices said "Someone replies to a topic to which you are subscribed". Obviously, I DO want those notifications by email. Therefore, it seems to me that since I posted on a topic...--I--...am "SOMEONE replies to a topic to which you...

Re: fishing partner

Ha Ha...Sue and I rented a rowboat some 35 years or so ago. Somewhere in Wisconsin as I recall. We took it out, and I went to drop the concrete anchor in.... and......watched it plummet to the depths. No one had tied the loose end of the rope onto anything. The people at the place that we rented it ...
