re: How much fuel do you keep on board your boat? - Tigerhead on 5/20/17 at 8:38 am
54 gallons and I keep it full. Just a tip, Yamaha dealership told me that for every inch of vapor space you leave in your tank, you will condense "so many" ounces of water in a given amount of time. I don't remember the number of ounces or the length of time. To get the true amount you had to consid...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Went to a choir performance at an elementary school recently. My wife and I get there 30 minutes before the performance. We knew where my grand daughter would be standing, so we tried to get a seat accordingly. When we went to sit down a woman 6 seats away tells us the whole row is saved.

Galveston Yacht Basin boat ramp is very steep and deep for launching offshore boats. We were in the bait camp next to the launch when some sports show up with a big offshore boat. This boat is one of the big cc's on a triple axle trailer, has three huge outboards on the back, but they are pulling i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: On-board battery charger installation options - Tigerhead on 5/12/17 at 6:10 pm
I have two Minn Kota onboard chargers.

I prefer that mounting location. When I was running lead acid batteries f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: The Radium Girls — still glowing in their coffins - Tigerhead on 5/9/17 at 11:21 pm
There's a great documentary called "The Poisoner's Handbook" that is about Charles Norris. He was the Chief Medical Examiner for New York City from 1918 to 1935. The Radium Girls incident was during his tenure. The documentary also covers his research and findings around tetra ethyl lead, carbon mon...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Mounting and leveling a scope questions - Tigerhead on 2/5/17 at 9:29 am
You want to level the horizontal reticle relative to vertical axis of the bore. In other words, get the gun as plumb as possible and then level the horizontal reticle. If you google "Larry Poterfield videos" he has some great videos on how to mount a scope. Problem is, in order to do that with ab...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Trailer Bearing/Hub question - Tigerhead on 1/14/17 at 2:33 pm
I bought a new trailer in 2013 that has the Vault bearing system and I haven't had to touch them in 4 years. Something a lot of people miss with BB is that it says in the manual to pump the grease in until the pressure plate STARTS to move. Not until it stops moving. If you pump them until the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

So if an unfired shell is sticking, then the chamber could be bored incorrectly. But in that case you would almost certainly have to force the bolt closed, which is a no-no to begin with. But if unfired rounds cycle normally and a fired round sticks, that's normally an over-pressure problem. When a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Fish ID - Tigerhead on 12/19/16 at 6:00 pm
The only way I've ever eaten them is smothered. You lay the whole fish in a pot and add a little water to start cooking. They have a white fat on their belly flaps that dissolves as the fish cooks. It makes a white gravy that grows on you if you give it a chance. The flesh tastes good too. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Savage stealth 10 ba - Tigerhead on 12/19/16 at 10:09 am
Sounds like the ammo could be too hot for that gun. But I don't think I would want to own a gun that won't handle any of the factory ammos. Hand loads are a different matter, but the factory stuff should be safe or I would blame the gun, not the ammo. Savage may have cut that corner a little too cl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
