Absolutely. I'm a contractor and have worked chemical, nuclear, refineries, and paper mills. Having a lot of plant experience gets your name out. I get job offers all the time for full time work. Just wouldn't make the money I do as a contractor....

Bought my '05 Triton with trolling motor on it. Used it twice and it started bugging out. Brought it to the shop and figured out it had gotten water in the module. $500 later it's fixed. What are the odds of the seal breaking again? Anyone ever had this problem? I read on the internet that it's pret...

I have a 65 and 105. 105 for casting platform. I used it in my 16' flat with no front platform and it was perfect. Too heavy loaded down. 65 is perfect for 4 wheeler and bass boat. Hardly use the 105 anymore unless I bring it to a party or something....

I knew the right people. Started my career with an inspection company from a reference. My reference was looking for a company for a nuclear plant shutdown. Spent 3 years in refineries and paper mills. Got into the nuclear field. Now, I work half the year and get paid pretty well. ...

Appreciate it! Pretty pumped. I've been looking for about 2 years now, and for some reason or another I fell in love with this one. Can't change the name. My first love will always be busting the shite out of some ducks. Got into fishing tournaments about 3 years ago when I'm off. I'm hooked.

I've been trying to figure out how to pull up the prompt menu. Like I said, I'm not too great with computers. Which is pretty bad for a 23 year old. I've tried to google it on my phone, but, apparently everyone on Internet help is a geek squad member. I can't follow it....
