What is this attachment point for on the gunnel?

My one boat has them on, as far as I know they are to attach boat fenders. You need the nylon eyes with a grove in the base that slide into that bracket it if you want to make use of them. Just saw the above post which calls for a "peg", mine have the eye that sticks up and I run the fender rope thr...

Cutting out Gas Tank Safely

I tend to agree with cedar, aside from gas itself the highly flammable fumes in an empty tank will get you.

1996 Bass track 18 jet boat with 95xr motor

Check the impeller clearance, it can be shimmed up or down by moving the washers on the top and bottom of the shaft, I would check that first. If a liner is needed I would first contact outboard jets in California, they make all of them. I have bought parts from them and they are very helpful and cu...

107 year old Evinrude back in service! 1913 at it's best.

Where's that bow down emoji, interesting just to see a motor that old, and then have it come back to life. Couple years ago I watched a guy "fire up" (literally) a Stanley Steamer, and I was amazed at the process he needed to go through to get it ready to drive. Think it took about 20 minutes, not e...

Home made mask info

I saw it mentioned about using the blue shop towels as filters.
One thing that I have noticed with people wearing masks, if they aren't worn properly, and don't seal, they might as well not be wearing anything and offer little to no protection.

Corona Virus

I'm also in the "high risk" group if I were to contract coronavirus. We aren't that far from NYC and Philadelphia, it irks me that people are driving 80-100 miles away from those areas looking for toilet paper, seems like they don't give a darn about possibly spreading the virus just as long as they...

Big Score this Morning

Could it be ---- it's scaring the crap out of everyone! :LOL2:
Agree with CedarRiver, if everyone just bought what they needed , when they need it, there would be plenty to go around for everyone just like before the coronavirus scare.

New Jet Motor advice for 16’ Xpress

4 people and gear, current, I would go with the biggest option.
I have a 40/30 Yamaha on a 16' MV Tracker GRIZZLY, it is OK, but if the boat were rated for more than 40hp there would be a 60/40 on it, Pa goes by the powerhead hp.

Where to fish for snakeheads in Eastern Pa.

Google> where to catch snakeheads in pa. It looks like the Schuylkill or Delaware rivers may be a place for a possibility.
I have heard of some being caught in the Delaware, but I think they are few and far between.

Inside a Nuclear Sub in the Med Sea

Thanks for sharing that LDUBS, I worked around them everyday for 2 years serving on a sub tender (USS Simon Lake AS-33), and later as part of COMSUBRON 14. I never got a full tour, but was on the mess deck of two of them and got to look through a periscope. They are way more roomy inside than the ol...

Turkey calling tips

I can use diaphragm calls, but my go to call for many years has been a Lynch World Champion box call. Sometime I use both in conjunction with each other, one advantage of the mouth call is restricted movement when they are close. I only wear woodlands camo for both turkey and archery hunting, no nee...

Handmade early French flintlock muzzleloader, circa 1727

Great build! I'm not that talented to build one from scratch, but my first FL was a TC Hawken kit, turned out pretty nice and shot well.

Can a simple Block of Wood catch fish?

I remember watching a fishing program years ago where they took a miniature plastic kitchen sink off of a plaque, ran a wire through it, and put a treble hook on, they managed to catch a good sized pike on "the kitchen sink". I think it was at Gods Lake in Manitoba, and possibly Gadabout Gaddis, but...

It was either walleye central or ice shanty, those are the only 2 fishing sites I'm on.
