Plywood Decking Help

I agree with the others, 5/8" should be fine and Marine Grade is overkill and expensive. I'd use screws where possible. Post a picture of it when you get a chance.

Not Tin but picked up a crawdad Jon Boat

I've got one of these that I bought from a Tin Boat member years ago. Mines missing the foam and the front plastic. I put in a carpeted 1/2" plywood floor (2 piece to work around the tubing for the seats) and replaced the missing front plastic with plywood. It's a great small lake boat.

G. Loomis E6X

I picked up a 853C a month or so ago but have only had one opportunity to fish with it. It's not a GLX, but it does meet the quality you expect from Loomis. I'd buy a couple more if I didn't think my wife would beat me with them.

conceal carry pistol

I'm always amused a little when I read where people feel like they need 15 rounds in the pistol and two or three extra magazines... these people must live in a war zone. Personally if I were to find myself in a situation where the 7 rounds in my S&W Shield wasn't enough, I'm probably scr***d anyway....

Summer Time Bass Baits

When it comes down to it, a bag of Zoom Speed worms (or similar) in watermelon, Texas rigged and a box of either football head or swim jigs with NetBait Paca Chunk trailer will get me through pretty much anything.

Big dog person here. Very sorry about one of them and very hopeful for the second one. Hope she pulls through.

Any bikers out there?

I have two road bikes and one mountain bike. Ride every time I get the chance. The only way to build up your endurance is to ride, ride, and ride some more. Four years ago when I got started riding a 20 mile ride would cause me to come home crash in the floor and take a nap. Last night I went out fo...

Benefits of a laser on a self-defense pistol ...

And to think others here think he should have just started shooting ... :roll: ... No, he shouldn't have followed them in the first place. At the point that they turned off from the route he was taking and he followed, he became the aggressor. Concealed carry is for defensive actions, not offensive...

conceal carry pistol

I'm a little late to the party too, but for the summer months I carry a M&P Shield 9mm with Hiviz sights and Apex trigger kit. Small enough to carry with shorts and tee shirt but big enough to be accurate at 10 yards. In cooler months I have the Shield's bigger sister the M&P 9c. It shoots no better...

Best Trolling Motor Battery

IMHO the Walmart Everstart Maxx 29's are hard to beat. My last set lasted 3 years before giving up the ghost.

Benefits of a laser on a self-defense pistol ...

The only advantage I see of having a laser is if you don't visit the shooting range often and simply want to make sure you hit what you're aiming at. As others have said, if the situation escalates to the point I've leveled my gun at someone, that person is about to have a really bad day. I go to th...

Fishing license price increase for TN.

Got an email yesterday from the GA DNR saying that they are discussing rate increases as well for both hunting and fishing licenses.
