re: Issues with Boat hasn't been run in two plus years - Chris4x4gill2
I would drain the gas if I bought it. I'd also change all fluids / filters and the water pump as said above. Run everything during the test drive - not just the motor. Make sure all of the electrical works, pumps, trim, dash, etc. ...

re: Garage Floor Paint - Chris4x4gill2
I used the Rustoleum kit from Home Depot when I first moved into my house. Its almost 10 yrs old and has held up. No peeling or any problems. It was an old stained slab too. The key to all of it is the prep work. In the shop I just built, I went with a clear sealer instead of the epoxy. ...

re: Building a Workshop/House for Parents Retirement - Chris4x4gill2
I would probably lean more to a red iron building vs a pole barn mainly because of the desired life of the building and the fact that a pole barn will start to have maintenance issues at the time they will be too old to want to mess with the problems. If you do go pole construction, id look into ...

re: Anchor weight / chain length for your boat - Chris4x4gill2
I rarely anchor on our lake but did several times over the holiday weekend. I use a 8lb river anchor with 4 ft of chain. I only keep 100ft of line on hand, that's about all I have space to store. Water depth is typically 50 ft with a rock bottom so I have not had any trouble with it holding. Edi...

re: Sun block recommendations - Chris4x4gill2
The aerosol spray type is what they don't like. It can turn the vinyl and seats brown / yellow and makes the deck slippery. They shouldn't have any issue with lotion whatsoever. Personnally I prefer the Coppertone Sport lotion, I've never had a problem with it feeling greasy. For kids we use Nut...

re: Tool Storage: Peg Board or Drawers? - Chris4x4gill2
I like drawers for my mechanic type tools - wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, sockets... but I use peg board above my workbench for larger items like levels, squares, hammers. I do keep a few pliers and screwdrivers on the pegboard as well for easy access. It also keeps people out of my tool box when ...

re: Flying Squirrels - Chris4x4gill2
we have a nest of them in the back yard. The cat will catch a few babies every spring and bring them in the garage. We take them from her and take them down to a wildlife rescue center. Supposedly they are fairly rare in our area. I have video somewhere of one fighting with a woodpecker over a nesti...

re: Any of You Fellers Ride a Motorcycle? - Chris4x4gill2
I rode all through my 20's. Sold the last one when my son was 2. Between priorities changing and friends moving on to other hobbies I just didn't ride it enough. I always had sport bikes, my last being a Triumph. Daytona for bike week - had more fun in the pits at the AMA race than on the strip. Tri...
