Re: New guy from Florida

Welcome! With the recent changes of weather in places most Forum members live, many have switched off to writing about politics for a short time. These people have feelings for reduced taxes, reduced deficits, personal freedoms and God and Country. They also like dogs, grandkids and fishin'. Stick ...

Re: Sea Legs Portable Lift?

Yep Bama's first sentence is what kept me from buying. I will be in the market for a new dock an lift next year. If those reasons listed don't come into play they would probably be a good choice. Most reports here on people that have installed them have been positive. To me if you are spending almos...

Re: CITGO GAS

Think I would check just to make sure if you are in the area. I went on one of those sites that's suppose to list ethanol free gas stations an seems like the first listed was a Citgo. Anyway I went to three they listed as ethanol free an all the pumps stickers said 10 percent ethanol. Didn't go insi...

Re: You think you know how to fish. Ha.

They used a tall pine on my property line to hunt from. Any time I saw them go after one they never came back empty handed. The last clip showed them turning the fish in the direction they were flying. I saw that several times in the spring. Most were yearling bass right off my sea wall. Didn't see ...

Re: Low life bastards stole my trailer!

Had my first encounter with Progressive this past month. Their insured ran into the back of my wifes car at a stop light. Overall I would give them a B+. They provided a rental car an did what they could to correct the damage given it was an older car. The repair shop they chose did a fairly good jo...

Re: Getting bird crap stains off vinyl

Doc: I see you've also discovered Bugspray.com (Stone Mtn, GA) to get rid of anything that needs to go, including spiders and snakes. He's an old pest control man that got tired of crawling under houses and started a retail store and mail order termicide/pesticide sales. He writes long essays on cr...

Re: Getting bird crap stains off vinyl

Man it has some fantistic reviews. One of the reviews said it was generic for talstar.Bought something at HD that was rated high an did work but at 12 bucks or so a can not that economical unless you only need to treat a small area. Here is a link to a place I have bought chemicals near my old house...

Re: Low life bastards stole my trailer!

Anything can and will be stolen about all you can do it make them use a little more effort cause most crooks are basically lazy Here is the coupler lock I use http://www.etrailer.com/Locks/Tow-Ready/63228.html From there you could remove the wheels then use locking nuts to prevent them from bringing...

Re: Comparison of Price and Trim Levels

You could probably get a bentley or tracker for about half that amount. Plan on purchasing another bentley in the spring. No way I can justify paying 20 to 30k more. Granted I have to slow down in the turns with the strakes on the outside but for that kind of money, I can live with it. Guess if it i...

Re: Florida Keys next summer. Help me prepare.

Yep pretty much everything margrita said especially the last paragraph. Sort of cool doing the bar scene and imagining the way thing were when Hemingway was there sitting at the bar. Wasn't really meaning to bash the keys, but its the first vacation I cut short by two days, seems like it was early s...

Re: Florida Keys next summer. Help me prepare.

Hope the weather is better than the time I was there. Walked out of the motel an was soaking wet before I got to the car. Not sure what was going on weather wise but you could cut it with a knife. Had pictured something like the oceans breezes of Daytona or Panama City but there were none. May have ...

Re: Hi Everybody!

Welcome Bill guess the best advice to give is make sure your motor is reliable and runs fairly good. Nothing like getting stranded constantly to turn the wife an you guest sour on pontoons an boating. The other stuff can be taken care of later....

Congrats and enjoy

Re: every had one of those days?

I trailer with the motor down but trim it to about the bottom to the logs before backing down the ramp. Guess cause when I was looking to buy my first boat many years ago, about half it seemed to have broken skegs.
