Re: Veterans Appreciation Day Run

Jeep, to some folks it is, the "entitled" don't give a sheet. I do this each year (with or without veterans) as a reminder that some do appreciate the freedom that we have today because of our veterans. I will try to include some of the PBCSO personnel this year and expand this event to ot...

Re: Any other oldtimers from the Good old days

"Cowboy", Thank you for those pictures. I have to say that they brought tears to my eyes. He was a great influence in my life. I had the pleasure of learning air boating from him as well as hunting off half tracks in the glades. He was my pioneer and hero. I would stop anything I was doing...

Re: HAS ANYONE FOUND TREASURE OR OTHER THINGS IN THE EVERGLA

As for lost or misplaced gold, silver etc., no. "Skinnypockets" did find a dug out canoe a few years ago in the St Johns River when the water was very low. He towed it in and brought it here to Camp Old Glory where it hangs today. An Indian artifacts person saw it and said that it was 500 ...

Re: Starter not engaging

Also, if you are using a starter button, the contacts inside the switch could be carboned up from low voltage. Try using a metal object to "jump" the terminals to see if it works like it should. If it does, you need another switch. If you possibly can safely, jump the starter at the soleno...

Re: Starter not engaging

What's the cure for a problem where the starter fails to engage the flywheel properly if the prop is at certain positions? Seems to be strong when it does engage. I don't see any obvious signs of wear on either the flywheel or the starter. If it does miss, simply turning the prop by hand a few degr...

Re: Boat builder ripoffs.

No, he's right. If you aren't driving away with a boat in your rearview, you shouldn't be paying 100%. If the shoe fits, wear it but don't be offended. It is what it is. I'm not saying 100%. But why would a builder invest a large amount of money in an order and possibly get stuck with it? A builder...

Re: Boat builder ripoffs.

Like Tony said on another thread a builder who wants 100% payment up front ought to be avoided. No one should pay any more than 50% for a deposit in my opinion. To order a boat, make full payment and be waiting a year or more is not a reasonable situation. If someone claims to make 12 boats a year ...
