  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. Proud to introduce Lake Maverick!

    Really GREAT! Curious, when did plans for the facility start? Must have been years in the making.
  4. Garmin 840xs with DownVu Transducer

    Price drop to $700.
  5. Brand new in sealed box. Bought it for a project I'm doing with my neighbor and we ended up using a used one that fit the application better. This is the cheapest I've found this package: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Garmin-GPSMAP-840xs-010-01181-02-With-Combo-Plotter-Sounder-DownVu-Transducer/222835014516?epid=1676846913&hash=item33e2007b74%3Ag%3ANfgAAOSwMAxagPVH&_sacat=0&_nkw=garmin+840xs&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313 Looking for $750. Can ship if buyer pays, or meet up in Miami/FTL or Naples/FMY areas. PM or email nicecast13@yahoo.com
  6. 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.
  10. What's Really Important In Life..........

    Wow, what an accomplishment. For her and you! Congrats!
  11. I hate the location of the standpipe in my 2200 TE's forward livewell (dead center of the well) and want to relocate it. Anyone ever done it and can share some pics or advice?
  12. Craigslist 2200 PF

    NOT MINE... looks clean, and well priced. https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/col/boa/d/2000-pathfinder-2200v/6591360520.html
  13. 2008 Maverick MA 18' w/F150/ Side console

    I had an old Action Craft with side console and it was a really nice feature! Really opens up the deck area.
  14. Livewell issue

    I removed my strainers years ago - no priming issues since then.
  15. 200 OX66 for sale (not mine, funny ad!)

    Great ad. I miss my OX66. Cruising at 3k RPMs and put the hammer down you'd better be holding onto something - it has "throw you off the boat" power!
