Re: Sponsors hurting site

I think maybe what the original thread poster was talking about is that it kind of becomes redundant when people post a gazillion reports praising ‘God’s teeth and Old goat lures, etc’. And then each time the lure manufacture chimes in with his thanks, and other suggestions of lures etc. That being ...

Anybody live between Granite Falls and Arlington?

If you live out there, I was hoping to inquire about a small private lake. Send me a PM.

Thanks

Re: Brands of welded hull boats..?

Beeman, Thanks for sharing. Sounds like your patience and taking time paid off for you. It was interesting to read what you said about some of the sloppy build quality that you saw in boats right there on the showroom floor. (Over spray of foam, etc) I am still working my way towards this thing. Aft...

Re: Mandate Barbless Hooks For Lake Sammamish

If your asking for people’s .02, then my opinion is that I’d be happy to see a barbless hook regulation, on Kokanee, and Cutthroat, specifically within Sammy and Lake WA.). As well as a C/R reg imposed on all non stocked species. Specifically the Cutts. (I know, someone will call me out on perch fal...

If your in Omak, I’d stay away from the Roadway inn. There are so many great private residences available via Airbnb . Take a look.

Re: Our Friend the Furnance

When I was referring to ‘Normal’ 2 sets of chromosomes, I was just meant normal 2 sets, as like most of the critters we know.
It’s all good.

Chris, I have a 2006 115 HP E-tec which has over 1000 hours on it. They are solid motors and mine is set to run the XP100 oil. A gallon typically lasts between 75 and 100 hours, depending on how it's run. No oil/filter changes required, except for the lower unit. They run quiet, not quite as quiet ...

Re: Anyone have a trailer dolly?

I was really aiming to get one of the manual hand drive models. I can’t imagine needing an $1100.00 power unit.

Unfortunately I do have a very small area of grass to go over, at least until I can pour a concrete slab. I was hoping to hear that the manual one could handle 3’ of tightly cut grass.

Anyone have a trailer dolly?

Does anyone have any experience with the trailer hand dollys that are out there? I will likely need one as I move into a larger boat. My access to my garage is slightly uphill, and cannot exactly be backed into with the vehicle. I’m just wondering if you have a model that you like, and if you feel l...
