re: Bonefish/Tarpon Trip - bluemoons
[quote]Like I said, I'm fine striking out as long as I get a good experience.[/quote] Good. As long as you're aware of the sight fishing game, it'll be hard to have a bad experience poling around the Keys hunting fish. The most difficult sight fishing trips for both guides and anglers are those w...

re: Bonefish/Tarpon Trip - bluemoons
I can't tell you much about tarpon on conventional tackle. My old man has made a couple trips and had success, but I haven't. Bones eat hair jigs and live bait. Accuracy of cast is important, but presentation is more important. Bones are very spooky. I'd line with braid and a long fluoro leader (+3'...

[quote]Sparkplug#1 [/quote] Random, but do you surf? I'm looking at a surf trip for the fall and looking for some longboard friendly waves in Costa. I went to Nica a couple years ago and mostly found hollow reef breaks, which was fine then, but I don't surf nearly as much as I used to and I'm tr...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
I would love a full opening :lol:. I'm just not inclined to deal with the cost and mess of doing it after the fact, then fixing my flooring up and whatnot. It's a shame because of how easy of a fix it is right now, but it is what it is. Interior window is going to be the course of action. I'll keep ...

re: The Fly Fishing Thread: Questions, pics, discussion all here - bluemoons
Thanks :cheers:. I typically refrain from gear discussion just because it contributes to the idea that quality gear = quality photo, but this has been asked before so here's a breakdown of mine, as a very amateur photographer. I shoot with a Canon 7d mk ii body and various lenses. A couple are Ca...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
Trust me, the anger isn't lost here. It's very frustrating. I'm just not gonna dwell on it. Just trying to figure out the best way to open it up a bit, and it seems this interior window is the most cost effective way to go about going it. Something around a grand is a lot easier to justify than some...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
[quote]you just need to realize how ridiculous it is for any builder not to do such a simple request, even for a cost. [/quote] I'm not sure how much clearer I can make this, but I'm well aware of that. At this point, that's water under the bridge....

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
Roger, thanks. If someone could give me more insight as to estimates, that would be great. I guess my last question is do you guys see any major problem with putting an interior window there based on the framing photos I posted on the first page? Obviously it seems like a much easier job than tak...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
[quote]sounds like we're beating a dead horse as far as getting changes done now though. [/quote] Finally :lol:. I do appreciate all of the advice, but unfortunately there's just nothing that can be done on the front end to get this changed. Hence me inquiring about costs on the back end....

The super will not deviate from the builder's plans. Already asked him specifically to do that. All of this is going to have to be done after the house is completed....

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
Whatever the terminology, I'd be perfectly happy with this. [img]https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/5c/b4/cc/5cb4cc80751fd199eeacefd035691b38.jpg[/img] So, can someone give me an idea of a.) who to hire, and b.) what I'd be looking at cost wise to do this?...

[quote] Then you are using the wrong terminology, you are talking about an interior window and not a cased opening[/quote] Sorry, as I said before, I'm ignorant when it comes to framing. Already tried to get the super to do this under the rug for me. No dice. The builder's inspector comes out...

re: ATTN: contractors/engineers of the OB - bluemoons
Again, changing it now is not an option. As much as I wish this were the case, I've exhausted all attempts at getting that done. They just won't do it. I think the cased opening is really my only hope to get this thing opened up. I'm gonna look into that. I'm not talking about a cased opening all...
