I'm sure it'll be good as new come spring.


I'll know by Friday if my boat survived Ian, or if I'll be in the market for a new boat. There are upsides either way :)

We're on Boca Ciega Bay.
I doubt we'll see storm surge of more than 4 feet here. I do not doubt there will be a lot of damage and clean-up, but I'm not expecting to see insanely high water where we...

Sounds like the motor is intact, that is a major plus. Hopefully if there is an issue with the hull you can get it fixed over the winter.

This story is why I would not own a boat that I had to trailer and launch/retrieve.

Sure, but that isn't really a thing the typical homeowner is going to be doing. I was trying to keep it a little more high-level and relatable to common home heating scenarios so it didn't become an...

Correct. Converting electricity to heat is pretty straight forward, it involves a big resistor at the core of it. You can do various things to move the heat (fan), or create things to help store and...

Keep in mind that if you buy a place at South Down you may be limited on overall size for a rack in their marina. You have more leeway if you can buy a slip.

We had a place in South Down, with a boat, for 10 years. Paugus Bay was great, at least then. Generally calmer and less crowded than the rest of the lake, a good sandbar, Naswa, Margate, etc. It's...

IMO, it is the exact opposite. There are endless crash reels on Youtube of bad exits from Cars-n-coffee events, just as one example. High performance Mustang crashes are practically a meme now.

I thought that was published as $0.22 for supply, but maybe I'm mistaken.

I think you've over-estimated the power draw of your router by a factor of 10. Unless the router is also serving as a hotplate there is no way it is using 120Watts.

Larger (30gal+) water heaters are usually 4000-5000W. Let's say 4500W on average. Your electric rate is based on Kilowatt hours, or using 1KW for 1 Hour. 4500 = 4.5Kw. Multiply your full electric...

Based on the logic in the floating toy island thread, unmarked and unregistered things in the lake have questionable ownership and so now I think the canoe defaults to being yours.
