Get the Boat out?

Recommended Posts

So what do you Non-Ice Fishing ladies think? Should we start getting the boats out? 30+ degrees here already at 10 AM! I love it!

Yes this weather has been just unbelievable.
Personally it has to be a little warmer for me. I'm hoping for an early spring but thinking that one of these days its just going to dump a lot of snow on our heads. But hey go for it and I hope you catch a big one. <><Mary><>

Well it is getting colder here. Darn - I was ready for spring! Oh well, need to do some work on the boat first anyway.

You might have a good week to work on your boat the weatherman said last night it was going to be in the 40's most of the week down here in Northren Iowa any way. So whats your forcast for the week look like?

I'm still keeping pretty busy around the house. I'm not here much in the summer so I spend the winters getting stuff done. Next summer I plan to spend a lot more time up on the Lake.

Hi Mary:
Not near as nice. Below zero on Thursday for lows. My dear one is in Tucson trail riding on my horse so besides working I have all the horse chores to do. I don't mind it in the summer but sure hate it in the winter.

I too have been trying to get some stuff done around the house. I hate to be stuck inside in the summer so better get these projects done now. We have a new Home Depot in Fargo - can't wait to get in there. If they are as friendly here as they are down south it will be a great improvement over Menards.

Take Care!

    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
