me too! I feel mine is close as well.
Craig - grab every moment you can. I had some good ones before my dad passed away, but now wish I had made many more.

Re: Great Weekend

Great pics. Ain't it great that we live where we can boat all year round !! Know it gets cooler in the panhandle as lived around Carrabelle for bit but still beats the latitudes further north. Life is too short to be inside looking at snow and cold when you could be chasing dolphins and drinking a ...

Re: forum administrators

okay, the problem has to have something to do with the pictures themself. I grabbed an old pic of one of my cars and it loaded fine... then tried to post a pic I took of my boat the other day, and it won't post... and it is actually smaller than the pic of my car that did post. Pic that didn't post...

Re: Great Weekend

Yeah, that’s the wife’s fetish, got to go see the dolphins, she loves it, I putt around with a cold beer following the pods and she shoots the pics LOL.. My wife is the same way. Toon or jetski -- destination/ time be damned. We're gonna follow that pod for as long as we can! Me? I open another bee...

Re: What does Average dry weight mean?

I've heard that term before also and so today I Googled it. Found a thread on HullTruth talking about it. As many different interpretations of the meaning as there were responses. It seems to mean different things depending on what company/ boat/ captain you talk to. The general consensus seemed to ...

Just reading old posts and curious if this restoration was done and what the result was.
Yeah, me too. Considering starting mine and always looking to learn what works and what to watch out for.

Re: Exploring

What fun! Discovered a couple of marinas we didn’t know about. Ate lunch at a restaurant on the lake. Saw a bald eagle looking for something to eat. I’m not sure I ever stopped smiling. Les I have some cousins who live on Lake Martin. They went for a couple of years to vacation... loved it so much ...

They work fine, but I could use a stronger one on the bigger part, so thanks for the 40 pound info.
Rick - I think I went with a 60# shock on my larger section. I wanted that thing up and stable when climbing in the back. That's where my batteries and motor access are.

Re: Gas Shock for "changing room"

Just like Rick, mine were mostly corroded and gone. I decided on overkill. My dressing room curtain rail was a little "droopy" so I went with (I believe it was) a 40-45 lbs shock. I wanted it to really hold that curtail rail up high. I had to replace 5 or 6 shocks and had no concern about overkillin...

Re: New Pontoon Boat owner

Welcome to the club, egore! My toon is a 2003 and had hung on the lift in salt air for 15 years. The one thing I found the hard way (more than once) was that any terminal connectors are likely corroded. Battery terminals? Corroded. Starter terminals? Corroded. On and on. I recommend you consider a s...
