Re: Fish Whacker picture request

How about a broken little league bat? Do they still even use wooden bats anymore???? Probably not.

Re: FORUM UPGRADE ISSUES

Lack of the auto-correct feature. Hmmm, I get auto-correct on mine, but I have Grammarly on my Chromebook. Free and I think pretty good. Every now and then it suggests stupid things...like BASSES instead of BASS, but most of the time it fixes my mistakes just fine. I have the FREE version. rich p.s....

Re: Finally started catching some fish, again.

Fished a drop shot today for a half hour or so. Caught ONE bass, and that one chased the hook and worm up nearly to the surface. Every other one of the 17 bass (SEVENTEEN) LM bass caught so far in 3 days, using the guy's method, was caught on the same Texas rig with a skinny worm on it. Strange, but...

Finally started catching some fish, again.

I met an 83-year-old fisherman on the dock the other day. He is well known for catching a 9 lb (big for here) bass on my favorite lake a few years ago. He has been catching a ton of fish for years. Last year, his wife talked him into selling his boat. I had met him once or twice before and we talked...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

The boat looks great. Regarding your use of the ammo cans, well done! I have three or four of those things around. Of course, all of mine hold ammo.....NAH, they hold tools on the boat or in my shop. I have a bit of concern about the height of your stern light. The regs say something like "must be v...

Re: Traffic circles (Roundabouts) cause tornadoes

If anyone read the Second LINK, they will find that some high-paid scientists believe that a Butterfly, flapping its wings in one part of the world, can cause a Hurricane in another part of the world, weeks or months later. It is called Chaos Theory. Interesting. There is more than we do not know, t...

Traffic circles (Roundabouts) cause tornadoes..maybe??? https://triblive.com/news/pennsylvania/pennsylvania-man-says-rise-in-tornadoes-caused-by-traffic-circles/ Sounds nuts...but.....there is the theory of The Butterfly Effect to consider. ...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

Well, you wanted it to open. You did what you had to do..... NOT.

Sorry, but we are all guilty of using too-large pliers/hammers to fix some small thing that is resisting.

Painting over the original Lowe paint

When I purchased my used 2006 Lowe 1756 a few years ago, it had a black hull. Looked neat. The owner said he had painted it. I ASSUMED that he had properly prepped the hull before painting. Yesterday I was forced, by the wind, into rubbing the side of the boat along a dock. An entire one-foot high, ...
