    CNC Motors Fraud Investigation

    Seems like the luxury exotic car business gets it's share of negative press. I know Marc Chase from Symbolic Motors in La Jolla was always on the radar as being a donation strawman for various politicians. This guy made big news in San Diego for "Cleaning" drug money.

    Pretty sure it just read like that --- two days after receiving the 2nd shot, etc.

    Looking for a friend to drive pontoon on 4/10.

    I think this one is what he meant ๐Ÿ˜ 40 , surely you meant another group. Looks like they're having big fun --- cool ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ In the future, looking for a friend to volunteer to act as a DD, not money, no food, nothing. Officially, same as when I used to take friends Tuna fishing, no money, no...

    When did you realize you were officially old? My time was yesterday.

    No No, I'm not taking THAT pill, I was only using it as a time reference. ๐Ÿ˜‚ At times I feel kinda old, but I haven't reached "Hyundai Old" yet :eek:

    When did you realize you were officially old? My time was yesterday.

    How old I feel depends if it's when I'm charged up all gung-ho before I start weed whacking my grove, or when my ass is dragging a couple of hours after. ๐Ÿ˜– When your daughter is freaking out because she's about ready to roll her life clock to 50, it's hard to fool even yourself. When a...

    PWC accident Bullhead

    They're putting nozzle skegs to allow some no-thrust steering (Like some jetboats) and I know Sea Doo has emergency braking now, might allow some steerage as well. I know the new models incorporate a lot of "Emergency" safety features. Sea Doo's design extends the sponsons if I recall to create...

    PSA...another clue into the minds of women

    That's the key, forget the score cards, lose the ego, keep it fun and if you're sinking, keeping laughing, fuck it, God don't care if you left a fender out AND --- nobody gets out alive anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    PWC accident Bullhead

    Not sure about the stall, could be dummy out of gas ? Ski that won't idle ? But I do know, for newbies using the throttle to avoid an accident goes against their natural tendency to simply release it and hold on frozen in terror. I know many new skis I've checked out seem to be coming with...

    PSA...another clue into the minds of women

    I agree, I tend to want my boating program to have it's shit together, so I can be rather picky in that regard. ๐Ÿ˜ I met my wife over 40 years ago on a kind of blind date through a friend to go water skiing in Mission Bay SD. Since then we've boated continuously. fishing, water skiing, big...

    PSA...another clue into the minds of women

    Yeah, there's that ๐Ÿ˜ I omitted the part where I admit that after 37 years, I've still not discovered the secret of successfully crossing THAT line. The only right answer seems to be, don't say anything. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    PSA...another clue into the minds of women

    In 37 years of a rather amazing marriage, after two prior failed attempts ๐Ÿค‘ ๐Ÿ˜–, I've only discovered ONE thing that really pisses my Mrs off. If she's helping me with, well, just about anything, especially BOATING things, it's considered VERBOTEN ( In English --- Forbidden or Prohibited) to...

    My 5th wheel solar setup

    Hard to determine what I'm seeing here on those screen shots. I'm seeing 103 volts and over 1600 watts, what is it feeding, the AC you mentioned ? Charging batteries ? Anyway, glad it's working great for your needs. ๐Ÿ‘

    Verado 400 Extended Warranty cost?

    Exactly why I always purchase the extended warranty --- because I know by doing so, I just bullet proofed my ride. ๐Ÿ‘

    Need an electrician's expert opinion...

    I know the old rules didn't exempt refrigerators, but since the receptacle didn't serve a counter area it wasn't required. But it's been ten years since I wired my house, and I know these "Safety Police " have been busy, not to mention the HUGE lobbying efforts by the manufacturers, for obvious...

    Need an electrician's expert opinion...

    Most my work being industrial, my greatest safety concern with 460V was fear of being burned, much more so than shocked. The plasma arc generated by 460 when it faults is so intense it vaporizes copper bussing causing the air to become conductive, the flame can be horrific. I have one close...

    Need an electrician's expert opinion...

    You and I are in agreement, they need to be confirmed on a known energized circuit prior to use. Here's a high voltage tip for you -- you'll like this. Many years ago we were doing a 5KV primary re-pull at Beckman Instruments in Fullerton. We de-energized the breaker but I knew I didn't have...

    Need an electrician's expert opinion...

    Non-contact testers are a great tool, I certainly appreciate mine. But like any tool, they need to be used properly, because they are not infallible. Step ONE, since your life might depend on it, non-contact testers should be initially verified on a circuit that is known to be energized. Most...

    Happy Wife - Happy Life - C8 Edition

    Oh OK, I'd rather have gotten the newer version, well worth the extra $$ I agree. I'd misunderstood and thought you'd gotten last years model, plus paid addition dealer "Adjustments", that's what I'm hoping will fade and took me seven years of waiting until I finally bought my Raptor. I'm too...
