    Biden finally gets it !!!

    In a speech earlier today Biden told a story that during the Carter administration a law was passed that greatly taxes on C level salaries. He went on to say that since then many executives take salary in stock options. I've always wondered why politicians seem to think of people a block of...

    Battery Options ( Boat related)

    I'm getting my boat re built. For audio I have 1 1000W amp and 4 6x9's, for power I have 1 plain 27 series battery. I had asked my builder about adding another battery and a switch so I wouldn't have to worry about running the radio. He phoned and said he could put in an XS battery and slightly...

    Top Fuel Hydro-300 mph ?

    After attending an SDBA race this past weekend at Lake Bryan( awesome event!) we got into a debate on if they were still going 1320 could today's Top Fuel Hyrdro's get to 300 mph? I know at 1000 on a good run they were getting into high 260's touching 270. Seems like it would be in the ball park.

    Bridging an Amp ?

    I am not an audio guy I have 4 6x9's running off a 1000W 4 channel Boss amplifier. I added a dedicated audio battery to the boat over the winter. I have a spot for a sub the previous owner took out that I never have replaced due to battery concerns. As battery isn't a concern anymore I'd like...

    Stand By Generator Cost

    As I sit here in Texas with 11 degree temp knowing I should have a decent bonus coming, anyone have insight on how much all in a 22kw standby generator would be ? I'm tired of this crap. I think a 22kw would be big enough for my house, gas heat, gas range, electric oven, one 5 ton AC. Any...

Are their classes for this type of stuff or is it best self taught(books, etc)? Also are there actual...

    Water Pump sizing

    So this maybe a stupid question. I currently have an HP 500 that redlines around 5000. It's going to be rebuilt this winter and afterwards will hopefully be in the 6000 range. I had hoped to reuse my water pump, however i'm wondering if I will need a smaller pulley for it as the additional...

    Gel Coat color Fades repair ?

    I had stopped into my local fiberglass shop to get a crack repaired in my swim deck. In conversation with the owner I brought up that my boat has a lot of fades in it(a dark color to a light color), the shop owner advised me never to scratch the boat as fades like that can't be repaired outside...
