I'm intrigued by auto-pilot on a consumer level boat. How does it adjust for chop? Obstacles? Or does it just adjust steering and the driver needs to be alert and adjust for those things? If the...

I'm confident I would know if anyone I was considering inviting on my boat would have a service dog. That being the case, the issue is moot because I wouldn't be surprised when s/he showed up with...

Hmmm...interesting. I wonder if a tower is getting worked on or that the influx of people to the area is taxing the network.

There's also the real possibility that it's just more people using...

Which plan through AT&T do you have? We have a prepaid plan, so other than VMNOs, we are the first to be deprioritized. If we had one of the higher end postpaid unlimited plans, we would *probably*...

Absolutely. 1/8th is not a great ratio to invest in anything that's questionable. Do it right once because the alternative could be much more expensive.

What's actually wrong with the system?

Ok, dolly--how would I hook that to my 4Runner? As I mentioned above, if we have to hand wheel it, it won't be used.

I've got a 4Runner with hitch. I'm guessing once every week or two. Storage area is ~1/4 mile away. Launch is down a slight hill.

Obviously, trailering would be easiest, but if I need to buy one,...

Melvin Village Marina is $49/ft. this year. Can't remember what it was last year, but I think less.

With a tritoon, we have no more than our 2 kids up front--7 & 9. If I was in my old double--which had 25" logs--I would've had everyone in back in big chop.

Thanks for the offer--if it gets to that point I'll be asking for advice.

As for the 2-stroke, the machine I drove seemed to smoke/smell not just at startup but throughout use a bit.
