      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

worscase you fried your engine best case is that you get a good deal on a boat motor.. i would bet that one of the connecting rods are sticking out of the crankcase.. does it turn over?? if it does freely, breathe a sign of relief.. if it doent trun at all or turns slowly and grinds start looking for a new motor.. funny it doesnt have a low level oil light er something. take the spark plugs out and put oil in those holes.. im thinking if it was out of oil its done for.. did it bog or just go ping and quit?

it bogged and quit....was a pop nothing and no it wont turn over at all so having it fixed is not an option here..not that i have money laying around..If i got repaired cost estimate and how long will it be in shop? it has always had low warning beep for oil just not this time and its going to cost me dearly

so guys i looked online and found powerheads for my motor and looks like 3100 gets me powerhead and that includes shipping and all..now when the powerhead arrives at my marine shop how much time and trouble is it to swap out the powerheads and what is the estimate to do this above and beyond the 3100 for the new powerhead....

its siezed.. how much whole new boat motor?? i would guess full day or 2 in the shop depending on shop how busy they are, experience, ect.. they usually charge $10 to 20 an hour for mechanical labor.. maby 4 grand.. are those powerheads new or used?

i believe they are rebuilt because they require that the old core be sent back for a 600 credit..new motor would run probably im guessing 7000-10000 but not sure need to call a few repair shops monday to find out my options.. if anybody has any good options for me or knows somebody that can do the work please let me know live in st. cloud..and really would like my boat in 2-3 weeks as i have a tournement that i paid for and dont want to lose my money

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
