re: Violence In Modern Politics - TheLSUriot
What??? Communism is left wing, no way around that. It always ends up authoritarian and militarized because it doesn't work and then forces the prevailing government entity into a tyrannical corrupt system due to the destined-to-fail left wing ideologies its based on....

re: Trolling Motor Issues... - TheLSUriot
[quote] running it wide open[/quote]that 112 will pull up to 52 amps. Check out the link to MK rigging chart. May be nothing wrong and that breaker is performing as designed.

re: Trolling Motor Issues... - TheLSUriot
Obviously, check to make sure your connections are good and there is no short in the wiring. Also, test all 3 of your batteries for internal shorts. If that is all good then you may want to upgrade to a 60A that is compatible with a 36VDC system. Minn Kota makes one that can be found for around 30 b...

re: Looks like NASA checked every box for their new astronaut class - TheLSUriot
I can speak as someone who has been on both sides of the astronaut selection process. There are no defined hard numbers to meet but an expectation to include a ‘diverse’ group based on a number of soft factors in their background. While some are based on the thought of better crew cohesion and perfo...

re: Baitcaster suggestions - TheLSUriot
[quote]He and I are both leaning towards Lews.[/quote]I didn't notice this mentioned. The BB series is Lews older legacy line of reels. If you can find a BB1 Pro on sale pick it up. Lew's newer line has two 'Tournament' reels that I would suggest, either the Tournament Pro G or Tournament Lite G...

re: Baitcaster suggestions - TheLSUriot
Revo STX is what I suggest. Better quality than many of the reels mentioned. Retail is ~$200 but can be found online for as low as $110. That is a lot of bang for the buck! You should ask him what he thinks then come here for opinions on those models. Also, rod choice is just as important a facto...

re: Why aren't "coastal" bass boats more popular? - TheLSUriot
I think that boat is awesome and could fish way more people that a CC of the same size. I went with an Xpress H22 side console with the large front deck rather than the H22B CC model. So much open space. No carpet and I use that thing for bass, perch, reds, trout, crabbing, and shrimping. Always sur...

[quote] Wonder is the prop was sized for the old 60hp motor. [/quote] Prop diameter for 4 stroke command thrust 60 hp is 14 inches. My dad's old 2 stroke 3-cylinder 40 runs a 10.5 inch. Very possible they stuck the prop from the other motor onto your new 90. You got the right idea. As the engine...
