2 stroke boat gas in a weed eater.

My old boat gas is all I use in my trimmer and leaf blower. Zero issues. Even put almost 6 gallons of nearly year old gas from the boat into my truck earlier this spring. Again, zero issues.

are you Locked down? lets see your projects...

Have you seen any videos of Barbie jeep type vehicles with predator motors? I have not, but it sounds interesting!! I figure he'll get enough use out of this that if the motors and/or gears implode with the increase in power, it'll be well worth it to upgrade them to keep this tractor running. So f...

Can he drift it?
Yes. It's his preferred way to steer around the vehicles in the driveway.

Smokers, what do you have? what do you like?

Nice job on the smoker :) The food looks really good too. When you aren't using it do you store it inside? Thanks. Yes, I store it in my shed when not in use. I also clean out all the ash from the bottom and give it a decent wipe down the day after a cook. My buddy built one at the same time I did ...

He loved it!! The smile on his face was priceless. Noticeable improvement in speed and power. Before, it would bog down in the yard through taller grass and hills. Now it flies right through with no issues. Now I've gotta bypass the thermal protector. It kicks the tractor off for 10 seconds when goi...

Coincidentally, I have the afternoon off. Texted my wife to video him running the tractor down the driveway. Need a before and...

Smokers, what do you have? what do you like?

I built a UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker) a few years ago for about $100. Love it!! Added a PartyQ temperature controller from BBQ Guru and it's pretty much set and forget. Mostly do chicken legs/thighs, whole chickens, pork butt and pork ribs. I mainly use Royal Oak lump charcoal and wood chunks for the smo...

I'm still working at my job as an Ortho Tech at an Orthopaedic office. We still have patients everyday, but have slowed down considerably. Feel fortunate that I'm still working!! Been stuck at home every evening/weekend though. Even with a 3 and 1 year old we've gotten a ton of yard work done. Grass...

Mounting light pods

I used rivnuts in the appropriate thread/pitch to install both my led light bar and my HID lights to the bow of my boat.

Here is how I did mine. https://forum.tinboats.net/viewtopic.ph ... ing+lights

Minn Kota Ulterra or Terrova? Something else?

Fished for 4 straight days last week on my buddies boat. We gave his new Ulterra, Helix 10 MEGA+ SI and Helix 8 MEGA+ SI a workout. WOW!!! What a sweet setup that is. I mostly river fish, so don't get much of this, but it was the first time I've used electronics to locate fish and actually catch the...

Was is a 36volt Riptide? I ordered from my local dealer. Might have to just use the evil empire because it looks like they are in stock.

Will do, if it ever comes in! Been waiting for a while.
Still waiting from the end of January? Were'd you order from? My buddy ordered an Ulterra on Friday and it came it yesterday. He ordered from Amazon though.

Which boat cover?

I use a tarp. A 12 mil heavy duty one from ebay runs $35 for a 10' x 20'. This fits well on my 1648 using two saw horses and a 2 x 8 running between for support. I tie it down using bungees and it holds up to heavy wind, rain and snow without issue. Keeps my boat bone dry and blocks out harmful UV l...

Framing

No experience with those type of studs, I used angle for my framing. But for frame to hull I would use solid rivets versus blind rivets.
