Been sitting for a year or so. Didn't idle real good even before this.
Previously had poured some Seafoam in the gas to try to stabilize it, but maybe not enough? etc?

| Outdoor Board|| Deer flys... What do they hate? - Grassy1 on 6/5/14 at 7:42 pm|
Last trip out, evidently the deer flies had eaten all the g-nats.
ANd the g-nats must've been full of protein and magic dust, cause the flies could fly faster than the boat and eat my legs while in flight.
What repels the bastards?...

Is there any reason not to file a homeowner's claim for hail damage to a roof?

| Outdoor Board|| Is this an extremist view? Re Second Amendment - Grassy1 on 3/4/14 at 7:46 pm|
Whenever discussing "gun rights", the first thing I ask is "Why did our founding fathers create the Second Amendment?"
Was it so we could hunt wild game? maybe
Was it so we could defend ourselves from our thug neighbors? maybe
Was it so if our government became overbearing, we could take it...

Five of us on the boat yesterday in Lake deCade. Sun never would really pop out for more than a few minutes here and there... mild wind. It was better than being at work, but not a great trip.
