re: Soggy yard resolutions. French drain? PVC Pipe connected to catch basins? - Chris4x4gill2
I just ran 120' of pvc for a downspout and installed a new French drain. Material, not including gravel, ran about $150 at Lowes. I paid another $150 for a mini excavator to dig it out for me. He could slope the trench easily with the mini-exc. Took him about an hour because he had to dig out a ...

re: New Boat - Need Advice - Chris4x4gill2
The discoloration is caused by the outer layer of gel oxidizing. This shuws u worse in dark colors, not so bad on white. You have to remove that top layer of gel to get to the good layer under it. The level of oxidization will determine how aggressive you need to be. Start with a rubbing compoun...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - Chris4x4gill2
You want to remove the wall completely between those two doorways? A new beam could be sized to do that. It would run the entire span of the opening and the load would need to be calculated to determine the size required....

re: yamaha fuel gauge - Chris4x4gill2
what type of sending unit does it use? the older floats - especially if they are made of cork - get denser as they age and do not give accurate readings. Swap to a new float and an analogue gage should give you accurate readings. ...

[quote]I would cut some plywood to fit the floor and glue some carpet to the plywood...put it in for summer and take it out for hunting season.[/quote] I would do this. Snaps on generic outdoor carpet are going to rip out pretty quickly. To make that work you will need some fairly heavy weight ca...

re: Which vehicle should I sell? - Chris4x4gill2
what is the new vehicle? that may make a difference in what you should keep. Real answer is you keep the one your wife wants to drive. I'm assuming from your post that the new vehicle for you. - actually it doesn't matter. If the new car is yours, you will be getting another one for your wife so...

re: DIY Gun Stock Paint - Chris4x4gill2
I've done a few things with DIY hydrodip. It leaves a cool tie dye like camo pattern. Really easy to do. I would spray the stock with a good primer first, then lay your base color and then hydro dip the secondary colors. I did a euro mount in white/black/silver with a grey base that came out very w...

re: Thoughts on children's auto-inflate life jackets. - Chris4x4gill2
Stick with the standard USCGA vest. Just make sure you have a good one that's comfortable for him to wear all day and not a nylon covered one size fits all in kids size. Those will get hot. My son is on the water all day most days of the summer and always has a jacket on. If it gets hot, let him get...

re: Need advice on old fiberglass boat - Chris4x4gill2
where has it been sitting? Outside or enclosed storage? In most likelihood, its going to cost a lot more than the boat is worth to get it seaworthy. 30ish years old is going to have wood everywhere that needs to be replaced if it was outside and likely if stored inside as well. Any photos? w...

re: Purple Paint Law - Chris4x4gill2
Alabama just passed the law as well. I've been reading up on it but can't find the paint locally yet. Magic makes a "No Hunting Purple" in a spray can or gallon. That seems to be the most popular color/brand. Rustoleum has one as well but it doesn't look like it shows up as well in the woods. Re...

re: Insurance and blown over trees in yard - Chris4x4gill2
It all depends on your policy wording. I had alot of large trees down due to tornado. My homeowners policy paid to remove the trees from any real property, meaning fence, house or driveway. Not remove the tree....just get it off of whatever it hit. If it was in the yard without hitting something it ...
