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

Thought I'd pique your little brains with this discussion. 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. ...

A rusting tinny leads to a story of survivial

I thought that you guys/gals might enjoy a break and a story of survival in the Canadian wilderness.

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.

They say the price of Experience is making a lot of Expensive Mistakes.

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, ...

Seasoned for three years.... You are right, they will not shrink like my green cedar did in my fence. Good luck, looking good!

Re: fishing partner

Being a guide....Ha Ha great story. I think you probably hit it on the head. I was in sales. 98% of my customers I loved. 2% made for a bad day. Working with the public, no matter what you do, is not for everyone. I imagine that your wrenches don't talk back, and they do what you want them to do, to...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

Nicely done. You will appreciate all of your hard work when you slime the boat with its first fish (after the big refinishing job, that is!). Kind of late to even mention this...but..considering all of the trouble that you had taking the old finish off, one wonders if an inexpensive Harbor Freight S...

Jim, I went to Notifications as you suggested. One marked for email notices said "Someone replies to a topic to which you are subscribed". Obviously, I DO want those notifications by email. Therefore, it seems to me that since I posted on a topic...--I--...am "SOMEONE replies to a topic to which you...
