re: SCUBA computer - bayoudude
I have been out of the game for a while but this is what i have sitting in the closet. It is an Oceanic Datatrans with air integration. Damn thing is like a TV screen on your wrist but never let me down. I am sure things have come a long way since my mid 90's tech :lol: [img]http://www.dixiediver...

re: new texas state record marlin (972 lbs) - bayoudude
The power of those fish never ceases to amaze me. On the way out we had a huge school of the mammal type pass under the boat. Really cool to see over a hundred of them streaking under and around the boat. Had at least 15 of them following the bow wave at one point. Back to the OP i did hear on t...

Got caught in the current next to the drill ship Noble John Taylor and couldn't back down on the fish like we needed to. Everyone was sick watching 1200 yds of line scream out then the knot break. Took all of about 2 minutes to happen :lol:...

re: Purchasing A Camper - bayoudude
Biggest issue i have had with a camper is a bearing failure due to a manufacturer defect. Luckily it happened right as i pulled into the camp ground. Was a huge pain in the arse to get fixed but extended warranty paid the labor and lippert kicked in two new axles. Never trust anything that says lifet...

re: Thoughts on dragging a boat to Destin. - bayoudude
Shouldn't be too bad just make sure your tires and bearings are in good shape. Pump them with grease and don't pull over 65mph preferably 60 so nothing gets too hot. ALso check the grease and tires when you pull in at rest stops. ...

re: Purchasing A Camper - bayoudude
I haven't had problems with my slides leaking but i do keep it under a cover when not in use so that really helps the roof and seals stay in decent shape. Biggest drawback to the slides is getting around inside the camper when they are in. On my 5th wheel i can't get to the back bedroom when the sli...

re: Purchasing A Camper - bayoudude
Going to actually be harder than you think to find something without slide outs. Best brand i can think of without slides would be Airstream as they strictly make bumper pulls without slides. Most tow behinds in the 20-27' range will have a slide in the living area. Both of my campers have had slide...

re: Teach me about chickens - laying hens - bayoudude
Will take about 4-6 months from hatch to laying and you will probably get close to an egg a day per chicken on average for about 2 yrs then they will lay a bit slower maybe an egg every other day. I would get white leghorns if you just want eggs but they will lay the white super market style. My par...
