re: New boat prices - bayoudude
Prices are stupid high on just about anything new but there is allot of value in a multi year factory warranty imo not to mention finance options. I would think dealers are hurting and should be willing to make a deal. ...

re: Any boat propeller experts on here? [update #3 Pg4] - bayoudude
The four blade will bite better and be less prone to slip however the increase will n diameter will load your engine more than an increase in pitch. A general rule is you will see a 200 rpm drop for every 1" increase in pitch and vice versa. Your engine should be able to rev up to within 200-400 rpm...

re: Looking at purchasing a new off shore type boat. - bayoudude
I owned a world cat 266sf for a couple years and the cat lives up to the hype IMO. Wouldn't even feel the seas ar speed in that boat under 3ft. Also only had a 15" draft with engines up. Paid mid $30's for it and sold it for same price which is definitely something to consider when looking new vs us...

re: How wide should a woods road be? - bayoudude
I am in a scramble to rig up a big sprayer for my tractor. We just bought and the stuff that has grown in the two month buying process is unreal. Too much logging debris for me to bush hog everything so I plan on spraying until I get my grapple ...

re: Buying a 3/4 ton Pick up - bayoudude
I had a 2008 2500hd chevy and likes the engine but it didn't compare inside the the 2012 F-250 I have now. The 6.7L gets around 10-11 mph towing my 32' 10k lb 5th wheel and around 15-16 mpg around town. If I did it over again I would get. F350. Also get the factory camper prep package. ...

re: Hot water smells like rotten eggs - bayoudude
It's from not enough use. Let the water run for 20 min or so and it will go away. Our fishing camp does the same thing after a couple months of no use. ...

Not a farmer but just bought 130 acres that has around 100 acres of recently thinned planted pine. So I guess I could be a tree farmer if I wanted to and I just bought a 47hp kubota to complete the weekend warrior get up...

re: crab traps... - bayoudude
Depends on your trap too. If you have the four funnel with two chambers they cannot get to food once they go up to the top chamber. I wouldn't leave out more than two days without running them. Would take the crabs over a week to die of starvation I would think maybe much longer if they can snag som...

re: .300blk reloaders I've playing with lead bullets - bayoudude
I haven't. It down any cases yet as I have only reloaded factory 300 boo that I ran through my rifle. I did find that most factory rounds have staked primer pockets that needed to be swaged. Adding another step to the process. I am playing with super sonic loads using the tac-tx black tips ...
