    Navionics iPad update is awesome

    Are you running the actual ipad app or the iphone app installed on your ipad, just wondering about the differences between the two and if the ipad app is worth the extra money.

    Which verizon lte phone?

    Bought a nexus dec 26, like the phone but I am having major connection and reception issues with my e-mail accounts and internet mostly in buildings. Verizon is on it but it had better get fixed soon. Was at Bemidji State hockey game Friday night in the Sanford Center and had 0 internet and emails while in the arena. Other droids and i-phones around me were full service. Other buildings like various big box stores and my work place is spotty at best.

    2009 Shorelander Brake Acuator Squealing

    I have a 2006 EZ loader carrying a gx235 Glastron, had a major squealing noise from actuator when brakes were applied and released, it is a ufp actuator and after much aggravation from dealer telling me it was the way it was supposed to be to ez loader saying it was the brake manufacturers problem not theirs finally with the help of ufp we traced it to the emergency cable being routed wrong and creating the noise. The actuator had to be disassembled to correctly route the cable but no noise since. I hope this helps

    Amanda: Jigsticker is right, the more rope(rode) the better, it is also important to keep in mind how much freeboard or distance from the water to your connection point on your boat is, a 3:1 rope to depth ratio will probably only work in extremely calm conditions, the rule of thumb is a minimum of 5:1 and up to 10:1 or more depending on wind, bottom conditions and waves. I use a Guardian G7 anchor which weighs about 4 pounds with 6' feet of chain and up to 200' feet of line, I generally try to use a 7:1 ratio to anchor my 21' fiberglass runabout while fishing on Lake of the Woods, I very rarely cannot make a good hook.
