Stayed here instead. Very nice, close to St. Marks, Doge's Place/bridge of sighs, not far from Rialto Bridge.

Casual observations, could be refined for precision
Non-ethanol= .40 more per gallon
.40 X 23 gal (average fill up) = $9 extra
Non-ethanol= 2mpg better fuel economy (my truck)
2mpg X 23 gallons = 46 extra miles per fill
46 miles @18mpg = 2.55 gallons saved
2.55 gallons x 3.50 = $9 vs the $9 ...

Just a casual observation from a middle school function where I saw him in all p&g at the end of last school year, he seemed kinda short. He is well put together and looks strong as an ox, but I stand 6' flat, and he was not as tall as I am, despite him being listed at 6"1". I even asked my wife if ...

if you took enough of the skeg off, instead of the motor bumping and riding over the next obstruction, your prop will take the hit, and destroy it and your internals.
edit: I did once have a lower unit with a home made skeg welded on it (before I got it), so it is doable....

I'm just guessing but it sounds like your battery has built up "memory". I don't know exactly how that happens, but nicad batteries tend to adapt to how you use them. Google can probably explain the science. But if you don't fully discharge them before recharging, they tend to only last as long as t...

along the lines of what someone said about the belt too tight, check under the deck to make sure there isn't someting caught and binding the blade(s). usually that will cause the belt to slip and smoke, but maybe not this time. if it runs great otherwise and only stops when the blades are engaged, g...

I've come to realize that Progressive's strategy is that in any at-fault accident, no matter how minor, they offer money to the non-fault party to sign off. Several years ago I nudged the rear bumper of a truck while turning into a tight parking spot. There wasn't even as much as a smudge, but the o...
