re: Boat speedometer - do they ever work well? - Chris4x4gill2
fishing boats I've never cared. Ski boats I do. dual pitots in my old boat, one seemed to read pretty accurate, one was always off. Then were both adjustable so I could zero the "good" one with GPS at the speed we skied at. Current boat uses a paddle wheel speedo and its pretty good. ...

re: Removing paint from brick - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]It's a PITA for sure. Brick is porous and absorbs paint so trying to get all of the paint off is nearly impossible. I tried it on an inside fireplace and gave up and repainted the whole thing.[/quote] Exactly this. Had the same experience. Wife wanted to remove the paint from fireplace. Wa...

re: LED Interior Boat Lighting - Chris4x4gill2
When I was installing LED lights with the small wire leads, I went ahead and benchtop soldered larger diameter leads onto the wire that came with them. That made it easier to connect once the supply lines were run. In my case, the wiring was already there that I wanted to tap into....

re: Do you sit batteries on concrete? - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]The myth that concrete drains batteries has some historical basis. Many, many years ago, wooden battery cases encased a glass jar with the battery inside. Any moisture on the floor could cause the wood to swell and possibly fracture the glass, causing it to leak. Later came the introduction o...

re: Deep freezer alarms - Chris4x4gill2
I had that problem with my son and the fridge in the garage utility room. I would find it standing open at least once a day. I would 1. Make him stop whatever he was doing and go close it. And then 2. For the next several days I would randomly make him get up and go check it. I would usually pick th...

re: Orark Trail now has Yeti style coolers. - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]/Thread Jack I compared the Members Mark directly to the YETI top of the same size tumbler. The Tumblers are virtually identical and more importantly in performance. The tops between the 2 are interchangeable and the Members Mark top has a way to shut the drink hole. For MM's costing 10...

re: Orark Trail now has Yeti style coolers. - Chris4x4gill2
I have been satisfied with the Ozark Trail compared to the wifes Yeti, My dad picked up a two pack of the 30oz Members Mark from Sam's the other day and gave me one of them. I haven't used it yet, but first impression was the lid was cheap / flimsy compared to the other brands - including Ozark Trai...

What did the guy have in it that he took out? Any head unit would have some type of wiring harness with power,ground, speaker wires, etc. Usually an aftermarket head unit will have to have an adapter spliced on to match the factory connection. Look for a flat plug with 12 or so wires that's not conn...

re: Replacing vinyl on boat seats - Chris4x4gill2
Installing new skins isn't hard. An air stapler is a good thing to have and use Monell/stainless staples. Just remove the original vinyl, have it copied at an upholstery shop and ask them to leave plenty of extra so you can get a good grip to stretch it. After its stapled in place you trim the e...

re: Anybody have a truck cover for your pickup? Recommendations - Chris4x4gill2
I'm not well versed in vehicle covers, but Evolution is a top brand of boat cover and they are made to be towable at highway speeds so you know the durability is there. They are a boat cover manufacturer but they do take custom orders so it might be worth contacting them. Maybe they have a car divis...
