Re: Alumacraft 1648 Project

Heading from Georgia to Michigan this week to do some fishing in the Three Rivers area. Pictures to follow. (I Hope). I used to drive this 750 mile run in one day. Now at 66 it takes me 2.

Re: Inexpensive Live Well Project

Thanks Dude. I only target Bluegill so the size of the cooler works for me. I change water with an old plastic coffee can every hour or so.

And they are good eating.

Inexpensive Live Well Project

Many of us like to keep some fish from time to time, but don't have a live well in our boat. I saw this on the internet, so this was not my idea. I thought I would give it a try and it was really simple and cheap to do. I bought a Bubble Box at Wally World for under $5.00. Batteries are suppose to l...

Alumacraft 1648 Project

Thanks. The decks are secured with stainless steel screws through the carpet. Thanks! I apologize if this has already been discussed in this thread, but did you glue the carpet to your wood panels or is it just attached with stainless staples? No problem. The carpet is glued down using Henry 663. I...

Any way. getting ready for this boat's 9th season. Changed oil and filter as always and the water pump impel...

Stopping plastic pollution at the source..nearly

We have to phase plastic out of modern society. Be careful of what you ask for. What would you replace it with? Just think about what your car or truck would be like today without plastics. The problem is not plastics, it's us human beings. I've never seen a plastic drink bottle throw itself out of...

They suffered some water damage to the house, but nothing that can't be repaired. This is a picture taken today. My son is standing in front of the fishing pi...

It appears that both of our kids that live on the coast suffered little or no damage. I'm a little worried about our daughter that lives in Charlotte, with all the rain they are experiencing. the folks inland may be suffering worse than the ones on the coast. Hope everyone is safe. It's sad that som...
