    I don’t get the Toon

    So I bought the Tri Toon and gave it two seasons. It is an 2020 Avalon Tri Toon 25 with 250 OB and it goes 48 mph on the top end. This is a great boat. It is smooth, quiet, lots of room, very utilitarian, seats up 14 comfortably, drives great, handles rough water well. The 250 OB is powerful...

    Cleaver vs Max 5 props

    What’s everyone’s take on the Merc cleavers? They are speedy at $6k each. Worth it? I have not tested one yet but am told it will add a few mph to my top end. Not sure it’s worth it as I am not sure I will run full speed much. I just want to find out what this is capable of ..... you know...

    The American Left

    Now the American Left wants to make up. You hear this shit? Essentially the American left told us not to vote for Trump because he is mean. (Despite him doing a good job by many metrics) Meanwhile the American left has been equally as mean by calling conservatives every vile name in the book...

    banning ballot harvesting

    Ballot harvesting should not be allowed. One person, one vote. If someone is too lazy to go in person or request absentee then they don’t vote, it’s their choice. That’s not an infringement of their rights. ( you don’t even need a stamp) Get off their ass and vote like the rest of us. I...

    Eliminator 27 speedster, 400’s

    I ordered a new 27 Speedster to replace the one I sold earlier this year. Except this time I went with twin 400’s rather than an IO. Based upon my observations watching the twin 400’s run it seems like the logical choice. Plus the 400’s look turn key and that’s a big plus for me now. The OB’s...

    Boatless for the first time

    I am boatless for the first time in like 27 years. This was not part of the plan but it is what it is. Sure I have bought and sold things in the past but never without something else already in the works. This time I got nothing. It seems odd being boatless. The worse part is I am a...

    27 foot Cat with OB or IO??

    What does everyone think about the pros and cons of building a NEW boat with either an I/O OR twin OB's, with current motors options? As in which motor option would you rather do and why? What do we think the trend will be going forward? Specifically the 27 Speedster but any builder for that...

    Question for the sparkys (electricians)

    I have a question about adding a sub-panel circuit (for A/C) and my main panel. How is this done exactly? Does it have to go through the breakers? Or just from the main? Is A/C 110 or 220? My main panel is completely full meaning that all breaker slots are full with existing circuits. I...
