  1. I'm heading to Ontario in 2 weeks - what can I expect the duty to be on case of beer #2? I generally only bring my allowance and buy more in Canada. However, my fishing buddy is telling me it's cheaper to bring everything across and pay the duty. I'm not convinced so I'm looking to see what people are "really" paying. --Tim

    New Boat prices

    Quote: In the meantime if you own a nice boat take care of it and keep it's appearence up. Heck, I figure I'll be able to sell my boat in a few years for what I PAID for it! LOL - you can use that as justification to the boss as to why you need a new boat.
  3. oh yeah! done that a couple of times. Did it the first time I had my boat out and the water was 45 degrees. Man my arm was cold reaching down under the motor to screw the plug in

    New Boat prices

    Slotlimit - I noticed the price of aluminum boats has dramatically increased as well. A couple years ago I was at the boat show and jumped in that years('06 I think) of Crestliner SF (I have an '02). I wanted to see what had changed over the past 3 years. Well, the boat hadn't changed much but the price sure did. It was up $7-8k from what I paid in '02. The sales guy told me it was due to an increase in production costs which was due to an increase in the cost of petroleum. In my ignorant mind it makes sense but I'm not sure if it's true. I also noticed that the price of glass boats did not increase as dramatically. Something to think about I guess. --Tim

    Crestliner SF 1850/Yamaha F115 Prop

    Thanks for the feedback. I bought mine in '02 and went with the F115 for the same reasons you did. I just pulled the trigger on a once-run Turbo 13 1/4 x 17p at a really good price. I'll let you know how it works out.

    RECALL

    Quote: no, I think it is my fault. I performed the annual "running of the Deere" a little too early! I knew somebody did once the snow started. It took everything I had not to turn the key because I didn't want to put the bad voodoo on the weather.
  8. Anybody out there running an 1850 Sportfish with a F115? I'm looking for your experience with SS props on this set-up. I have an email out to Soderbloom's but I'm hoping somebody in this forum has first had experience. Thanks

    strange brew. "When you pull on that jersey you represent yourself and your teammates. And the name on the front is a hell of a lot more important than the one on the back."

    SD card advice

    I have been using Sandisc in all my devices(cameras, phones, gps) for years with no issues. Maybe you got your hands on a bad card - which can happen with every brand.

    Minnesota Wild

    I would like to see the Wild put a spankin' on the Wings in the first round. Send Hockeytown crying to their mama's. By the looks of it, that won't happen so maybe we will get them in the 2nd round
