Re: Lodging on Lake Kissimmee

Was going up to stay in an RV this weekend, but RV is toast. My camping stuff is in bad shape too. Camp Mack is full, anybody got any recommendations for staying close by? Best thing just stay in Lake Wales?

Love the conduit bends in the cage. That looks so much better than when they cut short pieces instead. Good work!

Re: WENT BACK TO LAKE CYPRESS TODAY

Yes, you can still use the ramp. The ramp is located just west of where Canoe Creek crosses the Turnpike south of St. Cloud. The ramp does get full at times because a large number of kicker boats use the ramp. Any length of time restrictions on parking? Thinking of doing some camping on the lake du...

So what's the scoop with the boat ramp? Can you still use it? How crowded does it get?

Re: lower shrouds on corvair engine

My old man and uncles ran corvair boats in the late 70's and early 80's and I'm not sure they ran any shrouds?! I also don't remember any cooling issues either. They had one on a 10x6 deck over and the other on an 11x7 gore. The one on the deck over had the 4 1 barrel carbs, but we could never get t...

Painting Question

I have an 05' Diamondback that is starting to fade a bit on the deck and walkboards. My hull is not painted on the sides, the only coloring I have is the bow, the foot stands for the passenger and driver and the walkboards. They are painted in this non-skid stuff that has held up great in 11 years, ...

Re: Duck hunting southern glades ? Anyone?

I've grown up hunting ducks on Lake O and in the northern part of the state all my life and I've never understood how people hunt the glades. How do you concentrate the ducks? We always look for pockets and natural feeding areas for the ducks. Seems like that's all the glades are! I'd be interested ...

Yeah you can ride there, but not too much riding, although better than it has been according to old maps. I did not know about the ENP 1988 ruling. What a croc of shite!
