  1. Key West

    I used to hang out in the Key's during my youth, but it's been close to 30 years since I've ventured down there. Really a unique place. If it weren't for the summer heat and the threat of hurricane's I'd be tempted to live the key life.
  2. Nice choice and welcome to the club Bone Daddy! I think you'll be easy to spot up on HL. So, would that be the "island" sandbar close to East Bay, the one at the end of Long Point or perhaps the one by State park on the north shore? Can't wait for summer!
  3. What color to pick- so hard to decide

    I showed my wife your pictures and she was also very impressed. But the first thing she said was, "It's not a tri-toon??". "Bummer", she said upon learning of the lake restriction. Somehow, I don't think that has any effect on your fun...

    Yes, she's a real beauty SemperFi! I'm extremely jealous other than that 20 HP hanging off the back! There should be a law against that!
  5. Inexpensive Refueling Options

    Great question! I think we only bought gas at a marina once last year and it seemed to be about $1.50 to $2.00 more than at the gas station. With me putting in about 15 gallons a day, I figure I'm saving anywhere from $20 to $30 a day by carrying my own vs. using the marina. Just my opinion, but I'm betting that the majority of the difference in price comes from EPA regulations and pollution insurance. When you take delivery, I'd ask the Spicer driver to stop at the gas station first before they launch you! That's what I did.

    LOL! Yeah, that's what I meant: vent cap and spout.
  7. Inexpensive Refueling Options

    Just a hint: If it's one of those "new" gas cans, buy an old-school nozzle and drill a vent hole in the can. It will cut the time it takes to empty a gas can in half! Welcome and enjoy that boat!

    Welcome to the club, Chrisbert! Enjoy...
  9. Its here

    Not to complain, but I think we need some better pictures once it's been rigged!
  10. LED sidelights wiring?

    Sorry that I can't answer your question, but welcome and post pictures when available!

    That's what you get when you buy off the lot. LOL

    Wow. Just. Wow. Spoonman. I can clearly understand your excitement! Enjoy...

    New one on its way from Amazon! I'll let you know how it works.

    Hey, thanks for the tip. We're down the street from you but only get three channels (NBC, ABC & PBS). Guess it's time for a different antenna!

    Yup, that is the problem, particularly if you tend to care about that type of thing. My brother cut the cable awhile back and now has to go "hunting" to find a place to watch the local college team. Cable TV is still big business so although there are alternatives for movies and some TV shows, they still have a strangle hold on the "live" programming.
