    The problem with blue collar jobs is longevity in your work. You’ll get to the age probably in your late 40’s where you hurt and ache a lot while doing your job and then you’ll be replaced by someone younger and cheaper. I know lots of mechanics with busted up hands and bad knees. Go to college and work smart and not hard.

    Ft Laud Boat Center Closed

    I'm not sure what this has to do with hiring boat mechanics, all I know is that I get charged $100+ per hour when I bring it in for repairs.

  7. Tried fishing Flamingo yesterday, not a good day, bait shop had sold out 6000 shrimp before 7:30AM. Water looked like chocolate milk and the bite was slow on the outside. Caught over 100 fish 2 weeks ago on a similar tide and yesterday boated maybe 10 fish. I'll need to try choko one of these days when the wind is up.

    Dumb things not to do . . .

    It seems to have a pressure relief valve to overcome this. It seems to go up and down fine, although I have not tried to sick it in the mud again. Its a little un-nerving seeing it bouncing on the water when looking back.

    Replacing Garmin thoughts?

    At the recommendation of FMT I bought the Lowrance Elite TI2 9" and must say that I am extremely satisfied with it using the ISLA charts. I didn't want to spent the extra $$ on the EVO3. Resolution is very good and the refresh rate is excellent.

    I always tend to leave the trailer lock either on the bumper or on the trailer. Also, just installed a new power pole, after my first deploy of the pole I took off while it was still stuck in the mud.

    I Want FMT! What Would You Do?

    Used for the first time my FMT at flamingo on Saturday on my 9" Lowrance Elite TI2. Mapping updates were fast with no issues. I just followed the red line and it took me through the channels and stayed outside the yellow lines. One thing not to clear is as long as I run close to the red and avoid the yellow am I good to go? I think understand that when the red and yellow are close I need to stay on the red even more.

    Best way to keep spare hubs ready

    If you are concerned about having trailer hub issues, I would tend to keep spare bearings instead of hubs. If you ruin your hubs while driving its because your bearings were in bad shape to begin with. Its a lot easier and faster to change out the bearing.

  14. Thinking of buying the FMT for my 18.5MA. Is it safe to follow the tracks with my size MA? Also do the charts have upgraded aerial mapping? Using a GO9 and not happy with the current quality of mapping.
