SS Liar's Club, revisited

I didn't know you could even do that and make it look so good. Do you worry the seams on the edges will start to separate from use? Because right now it looks seemless.

They are encouraging boat Vandalizm

I'm just saying here ill gotten gains became ill gotten gones. She (her family)screwed our kids, our future, so she could have entitlement. And FWIW, I never read where extremists were encouraging it. I'm certainly not, but it did happen to her, hence the use of the term "karma". Brihadaranyaka Upan...

Looks good! You should go into production and or patent this devise. I'm about the only dinosaur/endangered species prop proponent left on the river. Everyone else thinks that a jet is the answer.

I actually gotten ahead of myself. I bought a 1997 25 HP Johnson that was married to a couple other boats. I had the aforementioned machine shop build a lower unit protector of my design from 304 stainless. The river is a harsh environment.

This is going to be a multi-part post on my part. I just ain't got it in me to do it all at once. So..... I had Jim take down the thread on my build because botophuket thought that they owned my (our) pics. Well, seems now with their new ownership, my move was in vain. I apologize to anyone that pos...

Adult Berverage Survey

I’m a little surprised at how many guys prefer light beer. Maybe I shouldn’t be. I don’t drink much but when I’m out for dinner, I sometimes like a beer. My first choice would be a Miller draft beer but almost nowhere I go offers regular Miller High Life or MGD on draft. Miller Lite, Bud Light or s...

Welded or rivits

Apples & oranges
Ford & Chevrolet
Ginger & Mary Ann
