    Ethanol going to 15% ?

    I hope not. 15% would cripple our little boating community. Ethanol free is not available anywhere nearby.

    At least the marine shop it taking care of the issue. I would hope for a test run by the marine shop before you pick it up. Had they done this to start with it would have saved you and your wife some aggravation..

    Oil: Synthetic blend vs regular oil

    I had my transom replaced last year at a performance marine shop. So many impressive boats. I had them winterize and change oil in mine and they used Rotella. I told them I had been using Mobile One synthetic before he changed the oil. Later I talked to him about how synthetic kept my...

    Outage 9/17/23

    ???? That would be a chit load of work. Wipe the server disk clean, then load new operating system, load db software, then build databases, then load forum software, set up networking, etc etc etc ..... then we'd have a completely empty forum with no members. Everyone would have to sign up...

    Outage 9/17/23

    I lease a server from an Internet Service Provider aka ISP. We were over 90% full on our disk space. That caused server to run out of disk swap space. This is needed for the operating system to function. And this cascaded into more issues. With other configuration files which keep our...

    Outage 9/17/23

    I believe this is the first outage over 15 minutes that we've had in 2 years, maybe more. Sadly we ran out of a couple server resources. :(. Nothing money can't fix. LOL We should be good to go. And even faster. I had to buy more storage, and to get more storage I had to add two...

    Tie ups vs wake boats?

    Agreed, no wake zones can sure be annoying. Especially on a hot day. 1000 rpm or below equals 3 to 4 mph. Not much fun.

    Tie ups vs wake boats?

    Nope. None. The Ohio River has barge traffic. With barges traveling up and down daily they cannot have a no wake zone or the barges could not operate. Consideration of other boaters would be nice. Some are, most it seems are not.

    Tie ups vs wake boats?

    Wake boating has grown in my area. This is when the person behind the boat rides the wake without a rope pulling him. The wake boat goes extra slow and has 500LBs or more of water in a pouch in the rear of the boat to give it more wake. The wake produced when wake boating is huge. I have...

    1994 Chaparral 2550 SX for Sale

    For a 29 year old boat that interior looks great already (before detailing). How many hours on the engine? Bravo 3 was not original on that boat was it?
