Best thing that dude ever said: "People put life and sex in too much perspective. It's simple. They're fun. But if you start worrying about either one of them or thinking about it too much you start fricking it up and it ain't fun no more"...

re: Any boat propeller experts on here? - DownshiftAndFloorIt
I would have had them come pick it up and bring it back fixed. Of course if OP is just operating the boat incorrectly, the dealership doesn't really owe him anything. ...

I'd give them a chance to make it right, but if they didn't immediately start making it right I'd go postal. ...

re: Any boat propeller experts on here? - DownshiftAndFloorIt
An easy check is whether or not the cavitation plate is above the water line. If it is, you probably got a short shaft engine on a boat that needs a long shaft, or something along those lines. Got a slime line on it from yesterday you can check?...

re: Just overslept a final. WTF do I do? - DownshiftAndFloorIt
Well, you're living my recurring nightmare. You're fricked as far as the final goes. Maybe your A was high enough and the final a small enough chunk to keep you from failing the class. ...

re: Any boat propeller experts on here? - DownshiftAndFloorIt
As a habit I pretty much always take off trimmed all the way down and start trimming up as soon as the bow breaks over. Different boats like different things but that generally gets you out the hole the fastest. Sounds like you definitely have cavitation from the engine being too high, possibly ...

Nah man I deal with government regs for a living I think I could figure it out. I just need a facility in China to build the things. ...

That's an incredible little machine there. I wish I had the money and the balls to start my own car company. I think I could design the hell out of a badass affordable cool vehicle. ...

re: Why are Jeep Wranglers so popular - DownshiftAndFloorIt
A buddy of mine had one about 10 years ago that I think he paid $800 for. Put some co-ops on it and a lift and re-geared it. It was a million times more practical than any sxs I've ever seen and he probably had $1200 in total the whole time he owned it. ...

re: Why are Jeep Wranglers so popular - DownshiftAndFloorIt
neither one of those captures what sells jeeps. They can't be had with a removable soft top for the pretty day street drivers and can't be had with beefed up straight axles for the hardcore wheelers or people who like getting crazy with DIY modifications. ...

re: Why are Jeep Wranglers so popular - DownshiftAndFloorIt
I just built a stripped wrangler online and MSRP was $25k. Stripped really isn't an accurate term though. It's got plenty of creature comforts without any options. That price isn't too bad considering it's about $10k more than the most basic economy car you can get. What I can't get over are ...

re: Why are Jeep Wranglers so popular - DownshiftAndFloorIt
It blows my mind that other manufactures have let jeep just completely have that market. There's not been even an attempt at competition since the Bronco. If somebody would put out an affordable comparable vehicle we'd have some good stuff happening as consumers. ...

re: Why are Jeep Wranglers so popular - DownshiftAndFloorIt
I'm not sure but I hate how the demand has made the prices outrageous. I'd love to have one for the camp but I can't make myself pay $3k for an old and busted piece of shite. ...
