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.

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.

Well friday and saturday I got it all done, radio in, started, some what cleaned, checked the trailer, need to get new boat lic otherwise it would have been in the water. 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?

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.
    •   And yet more credible than Trump:  
    •   Paradox : BD2 and an open mind.
    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
