I can always buy gator meat but I absolutely love the hunt. I'm not angry, just disappointed by the way FWC manages this and recreational saltwater fi...

Re: Gator Tag Results Are In

My complaints will be submitted to the FWC electronically and by certified mail if unsuccessful in phases 2 & 3.

Yea brother. This is more important than a discussion of what prop to use or a porpoising problem.

Scorpion (Lee & Judy) built my boat in 09. Good folks. Good running sled. Rides flat. I run the Glades. If you're going to run deep water, have it built with higher freeboard and big enough to safely carry the payload. Power it accordingly. My boat is 12 x 7 with .125" hull. For more histor...

Re: Pickled engines?

Yea, you can also squirt some Marvel Oil in the cyls when you remove the plugs to prevent dry metal-to-metal rubbing when you first turn it over to prime it.
If ya don't mind taking a video when you fire it up. Sure would like to see it when it comes to life.
