    Need Powerhead

    Call Brian Franzen at Franzen Marine in Tampa. He has a zillion motors and parts, and also does rebuilds with warranty.

    WTB used Yamaha 150hp, 20" shaft

    I bought my motor from Brian Franzen in Tampa at the suggestion of a former member here who had also bought a few from him. I'd suggest giving him a call. He's not the easiest guy to get a hold of and he won't win any customer service awards... but his prices are fair and he warranties, and stands by it.

    Gauge Readout Restoration

    Eric did mine last year and taking a picture saved my keister when it was time to reinstall. BTW the results were amazing!
  4. Dianne Beattie in Marco. Her husband even has a Maverick! https://www.remax.com/realestateagentoffice/marcoisland-fl-34145-dianebeattie-id29909508.html
  5. Were you in Goodland last weekend? If not, your boat's twin was. In any case great looking boat and best of luck!

    Toxic Lake: The Untold Story of Lake Okeechobee

    Can't recall if it was Carl Hiassen or Dave Barry who noticed that housing developments were usually named after the pristine, natural thing they replaced. "Whispering Oaks" means they cleared a bunch of old growth oaks to build houses!

    So You Think Your Day Was Bad

    Man, I'm impressed with the eyesight on this thread! I can barely make out the boat, let alone identify the model! Bummer for the owner. Glad it wasn't offshore when she burned!

    Proud to introduce Lake Maverick!

    Really GREAT! Curious, when did plans for the facility start? Must have been years in the making.

    2002 Yamaha Oil question

    I've always been a Penzoil XLF guy, but past year or so I've been mixing WalMart and West Marine oil in and haven't noticed one bit of difference.

    OK, man. Word nuances, hair splitting and wikipedia - deadly for reasoned debate. We'll largely agree about gun issues and disagree about you demonstrating a lack of understanding as to how our Republic works. Tight lines.

    JEM, gun rights aside (you and I would agree more than we'd disagree)... you are exactly wrong about the Constitution, and actually about the very nature of our republic. The Constitution was designed to be amended and interpreted, differently, over time, as the nation changes. That's why Congress and the SCOTUS were empowered to interpret and change it, which they have done starting two years after it was adopted and as recently as the 1990s! Quite literally, we do - through our elected officials and their appointed justices - "decide the law means whatever a group of people declares it to mean." That is exactly, precisely, specifically how this nation was founded and operates to this moment, thank God, and ironically your wording above is exactly, 180 degrees wrong.

    Excellent point. The presumption that all gun owners are NRA members/supporters is as baseless as the presumption that because someone favors sensible regulation they are a sellout on a Constitutional right. Absolutism seems to serve some peoples/groups' purposes... so they are happy to stoke it.
