Stewart or a HMS car. Yes, its all HMS. Now that is really picking 1 driver. I cannot narrow it down from there.

One cannot forget the Gibbs cars either.

I'd like to see Mark Martin finally get a Daytona but I can guarantee you kyle petty won't be in the winners circle! grin

Mark winning would be great. I have to believe all would be as ahppy as when Sr won this race.

He has a very good chance with his fast car and the team he is on.

A Mark Martin win would be cool. I'll go out on a bit of a limb and say the 31. New sponsor and great looking car.

I'd give up a Stewart win to see Martin win this 500! grin

Not worth a separate thread, but what's with Ricky Carmichael in the #4 truck?

Does the guy have to live all the motorsport fantasies? laugh

I'd love to see the old man win to, Otherwise I'd like (hope)to see the 24 get one with maybe the 48 pushing him grin those guys need to come in behind someone else once in a while.

It might be a jinx but As long as it isnt the rat (or his punk brother) I'll be happy.

It could be the rat. The big issue with the rat winning is he will need a team mate as I don't believe anyone would help push him to a win.

My pick would have to be Carl Edwards. I think the Daytona is gonna be the start to his Championship year.

Wanderer, isnt that something about Ricky #4 in the truck series. He absolutley has it made

But, if you have position on a car and you are fast they will push, nobody want to be shuffled to the back, after trying to pull out and pass a faster car.

My pick is #24 (no surprise) but actually he has a fast car that can push and he has the skill on this type of track to make his way to the front.

Looks like Kenseth flew under the prediction radar and got the win. It would have been nice if the race finished under green with everyone scrambling to the finish instead of the rain stopping it but oh well. I bet Sadler is asking himself why the caution couldn't have come out just a few moments earlier.

Wow that's a big payday for the 17. I think that was Jack Rousch first Daytona 500. I hate it when they end that way. There's always next week.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).       
    • Any newcomers in the wheelhouse business at the Ice show in St. Paul?
