GPS Course

I've had to show people how to use even the basic features, so a course would cover setting up the GPS (customizing), setting waypoints and edit options, planning and following a course, using and...

Lightbulb Interest level in Garmin GPS Course???

A friend had suggested to me a while back that I teach hands-on courses for using GPS handhelds. I went on-line looking for similar courses and didn't find any, which would either seem an opportunity...

Never shoot a porcupine!

If you should ever be faced with a nuisance porcupine, don't shoot it! Well, not anywhere near your home anyway. My dad had one chewing the wooden steps on the house and couldn't get rid of it, no...

WMUR reported on it...

Just a few minutes after it happened, WMUR had a news flash on it. They will have more of an update shortly. Website doesn't say much. My sister in Bowdoin, ME felt her house shake pretty good too.

I don't think it's about paying a bit more. I think the issue is paying a lot more. I worked in retail management in a big box store for many years. That's after having worked a number of years for...

It's not about a "few" $

A LOT of on-line retailers are small shops just like we have here in the Lakes Region who just so happen to have a strong on-line presence. It's not just warehouses like Amazon (who isn't the only...

It's not about backing out; it's more about wave action.

While it is most certainly a matter of preference, and for some people, backing out is a challenge, I back in at the weirs and at any dock that gets some serious wave action. Boats take waves much...

Update

I haven't been on the forum for a while and just caught up on the posts. WOW you folks had some fun getting off topic a few times! Anyway, once engaging with legal counsel it is typically...

How easy we fall into the trap

It's so easy for us to just say, "well it's only another this or that much more." So for example, at $3.69 a gallon, I did the math, my 110 mile daily commute costs me 16.91 a day. At $4, that...

What Hyundai Corp had to say

I didn't even post all the problems. I forgot about the leaky strut and seatbelt that didn't work. I think there was something else too that's not coming to mind right now.

Before my initial...

Long story

Ok, you asked for it!

Basically, car's been making a noise for a while. Thought it was a repeat of transmission problems - transmission was already replaced once. Had a minimum of three visits...

Angry Irwin Hyundai strikes out

Warning to everyone out there, the "America's Greatest" warranty offered by Hyundai isn't worth the paper it's written on. It's highly misleading. Short story: even if you are able to produce...

Angry Rain is no exception in no wake zone!

To all the knuckleheads steaming through the Weirs Channel today because they could see a storm coming while completely violating the no-wake zone:

Just because you see dark clouds coming, you do...

Frankly, I'm very pleased with the change in the law

I have a 26' Chaparral cuddy; it's not an obnoxious boat. When switched to "loud," for lack of a better term, it doesn't sound obnoxious or even remotely close to annoying. It has a nice rumble to...

Winter will take care of it

I don't expect anything will be done with that tree before winter. I'd bet $5 (since that's as adventurous as I get gambling) that a few ice storms will have that tree down before next spring. ...

I'd stay out on the lake until I HAD to go home

I guess because I live here, I took "last day on the lake" to literally mean last day on the lake and not the last day of my life.

Since I live here, I'm on the lake every weekend and the last...

Interesting perspective

Funny how perspective varies by person. I haven't seen much for boat traffic at all this year. I've definitely seen more than last year but nothing like years past and I'm out every weekend.

My .02

If you're looking to buy your first boat, you may want to consider staying at the lower end of the price range. Why spend more on a chris craft or formula as some suggest and then decide in a year...

Try this

The most effective way I've ever stretched canvas was to get it wet. (Think wet pair of jeans)

Best to do on a warm sunny day, soak your cover for about 20-30 minutes, wring it out (will take...

Exclamation I am anti-Ethanol all the way!

There's a lot of debate on whether or not more ethanol is a good thing.

Please make sure you are using MARINE stabilizer (the blue stuff) in everything (even your two strokes) - not the "red"...

Thumbs up Great to have for emergencies for sure!

I had a late night emergency with one of my beagles over the winter (at 11pm). I called ahead and they were waiting by the door when I got there. They were super with everything.

We shall agree to disagree

I hear you, but laws and rules don't "do" anything, they are just words, so they don't protect anyone or anything. They are simply the means by which enforcement can react and hold us accountable...

Weirs bridge says we're at full lake

FYI that I went under the Weirs bridge yesterday around 4pm and the water level was exactly at the full lake mark. It was a full foot or more higher just two-three years ago and only had a no-wake...
