Running behind

10 posts in this topic

This Friday will be my 1st chance at getting the boat out of storage, cleaned and running. For some reason I am behind schuedule. I still want to put a radio in along with a few other very minor add on's. Am I the last one to get ready? Please tell me I am not the only one.

You're not alone. Hoping to get mine cleaned up for the season on the 2nd or 3rd.

Just cleaned my garage AND boat on Saturday. Took the boat down to the quarter car wash and $7 later, had it looking good. Stopped at Fleet Farm and bought new plugs, but want to fire it up with the old ones in to burn off the fogging oil first.

My steering console is cracked and I have a new one, but haven't decided when to tackle the replacement. Might wait until next winter for that.

I went in my buddy's boat instead of mine. Barely needed to start the motor before we were into them. Could have rowed, or paddled instead.

I ran the motor for about 1/2 hour. I will be ready! Got the motor home out, I need 2 batteries for that and 1 for the boat, not a big issue. Milacs here I come. I am going to be fishing the north sand for the 1st time, any hints anyone?

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
