Performance Engineering in Glencoe, MN builds a nice shell at a pretty reasonable price.

If you want top end though, check out E&T Enterpises, makers of the Shack Rack fish house frame. Best on the market IMO. I am having them build me a 8'x14' "shell". This includes the frame, all steel studs, smooth alumiminum siding, and a rubber roof. It's gonna cost right aroung $5000, and I figure another $1500-$2000 to finish the inside myself.

Berkon Industries in Holdingford, about 20 miles from St Cloud. They build very sturdy frames. Give Eric a call and let him know what you need.

Fishhousesupply.com has nice frames at a good price, however you would need to frame everything yourself which in my opinion is a lot more fun. But do be prepaired to spend some money. around 5-6 thousand on the short side of things.

Milaca unclaimed freight had one for sale a few weeks ago. If they don't, it probably wouldn't take more than a week to get one, thats how long they said it would take to custom order one.

What ever you do don't have one built with aluminum studs! Every fastner will sweat and freeze that you put in to those aluminum studs!

Buddy of mine had a shack rack, great house but every screw he added in it to hang shelves, rattle reels, tables and everything else frosted up and the wood trim and paneling rotting out!

Fish House Supply and Performance Engineering would be where I would start looking.

    • Peppers are back in the cold smoke. Breaking out the gas smoker later for jerky, not having a dehydrator think I'll put the peppers in the smoker and dry them out that way at around 130 or 140 degrees after the jerky is done. Not sure if it'll work but WTH. 
    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
