Saw this boat in a different video post recently.
Jet Bote; Like or hate 'em. If you get a kick out of cool boats, engines and mechanical stuff, this guy's rig is super impressive. First few minutes he explains how he launches so hard.
Ok, braintrust; what is the transmission (automatic) service of choice on your trucks? I am at about 70k on my Mini-Duramax Canyon . Some light towing of the boat in summer, occasional trailer for projects. Manufacturer (GMC) recommends every 45k, but I am thinking it can't hurt to service...
I was talking with my son last week about how Quarantine shutting down sports reminded me that growing up, watching sports on TV was limited to a few Lakers or Dodgers games midweek, a Saturday ball game and the occasional weekend random sports. My brother and I would anticipate Tuesday nights...
Cut and paste from a thread last year's thread. Keep golfing @TCHB :
I posted this in another thread. I updated the spreadsheet to include current day's change.
Some of you like this kind of analytics stuff. Here is a link to a quick spreadsheet I created. You can input your stock, ETF or...
2001 F250 XLT
White / Grey
Hate to sell it, but just not using it much anymore.
This is a great truck. Runs like a champ. Transmission shifts solid, doors/windows all tight. 4-inch Fabtech suspension leveling kit. Driving this is terrific...

The 2004 Los Angeles Auto Show. Dad and I have gone to his show regularly since I was a young boy. Dinner at The Pantry, then walk over to the Car Show. Been doing it for over 30 years.
I am a Audi-VW fan. I've had many variations of both...
Stumbled onto this picture. As a kid, my Grandpa refurbished an old Cushman just like this. He taught me to drive a manual clutch on that old trike when I was about 12. Drove it around for hours each day I was at his place. He taught me to respect vehicles, the mechanics of them and basic...
Had a great evening of ski racing at Lake Arrowhead Saturday. Many of you on here have asked about it. Here are a few videos that will give an idea of what it's like. Great families, neat boats, kids & young adults doing some really good skiing. In fact, seemed Saturday was an unofficial...
Mounted a new TV on a conference room wall at the office. Installed & connected a Google Chromecast device, which is my second one. They are a simple HDMI plug-in to allow the TV to be used as screen for your laptop, Surface, tablet, smartphone, etc.
While it does have a nice screen-saver...
Anybody ever run their boat in "reverse" to use a prop that is the opposite rotation of your current set-up? Is there a problem with running the boat in "reverse" with a prop that in fact moves forward? It would seem to be very doable with a foot throttle, although a hand throttle would just...
Curious what you all think. My pool is not responding to cleaning and chemicals this year. Doesn't help that the giant Eucalyptus tree and others nearby are dropping like crazy this year along with the heat over the last few weeks. Some algae and general cloudiness persists within a day or so...
Handshake thread reminded me; Came across this yesterday on Twitter, from @ryanshanks
College kid offered a left-handed fist pump to me yesterday; I responded with a rt-hand handshake. He was awkward for a minute but it sent a non-verbal communication: I'm not your buddy or your homie, but...
Hustled down on-ramp to 5 South today; perfect timing to see this beaut. Likely coming from Teague? Still in rigging process. Capped. Pics don't show it well, but that is more a red than burgundy. Classic look. Fantastic boat.
Anyone know more about this build?
The Pacific Trail thread got me thinking about this documentary movie.
If you like horses or adventure or seeing people do what most think is impossible, watch this film. It's on Netflix and others. Google it. Read the backstory. It's a modern day story of guys doing what...
It's great to see young men overcome a tough situation. Seems like the victim mentality is rampant in youth, and for that matter adults. After seeing the story on the San Pedro player beaten, this is a reminder that kids can be resilient. It's ok to struggle sometimes. It makes us better...
