  1. There has been buyers for about 22 years that I'm certain of and probably long before that. And the selling outweighs the consequences.
  2. I don’t need half the things I have in the garage either! I appreciate the offer but I can still return it to the store. Was trying to avoid that hassle though.
  3. Good to hear, thank you. I bought two, one for the center console I already have and one for the aluminum john with a jet I was hoping to purchase. That timeframe has passed for now so I’m selling this one and will install the other on the big boat. I’m excited to use it. Replacing a 15 or so year old Furuno unit. I’ll have a Garmin 182c and the 94SV.

  6. LIVT another good one if you can find them.

  8. I've done my Grundens jackets and a Guy Cotton dry top with NikWax TX Direct Spray-On Waterproofing. $15 or so a bottle from the usual suspects. Worked well on those.
  9. Here is a summary ... It’s been 13 years since the snakehead, a.k.a. the frankenfish, was first found in the Potomac River. Initial predictions were dire, but during recent years it’s become clear that the snakehead is just another fish in the river. The snakehead has not destroyed the Potomac River’s ecosystem as first predicted, and it appears that it’s coexisting with the other game fish in the river just fine. According to John Odenkirk, Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) biologist, the bass population in the Potomac River is better now than in recent years. --- And as someone mentioned above, the numbers seem to be retracting, not growing. Which I believe he explains the reasoning behind in some of his videos and articles.
  10. Anyone that wants some facts about snakeheads and what they have done to other fisheries, YouTube "John Odenkirk Snakeheads". He is a VA marine biologist.
  11. As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. And as someone who lives near the epicenter of snakehead land, it is only a matter of time before they start shutting down those spots with no parking signs or no fishing signs due to increased crowds and the issues that follow them.
  12. I have a 21 foot center console and I wouldn't unwinterize ( assuming it is winterized ) it right now, especially if it is wrapped.
  13. I've had three unsolicited offers made on my house in the last four months. My boat broke down in July and I didn't get it back for four weeks, the guy who owns the place I took it to said to me "Phil I can't work fast enough for all the work we have. I don't know where people are getting the money." I work in the golf industry and overall we just had the best year we've had in 15 or so years. Crazy times. I wonder what awaits at the other end.
