re: i'm buying this pontoon boat... - ultralite
Very nice restoration. I hate to rain on the parade, but have you had it in the water long for any length of time? It looks like the previous owner used copper antifoul, and it is pitting the hull pretty badly. I would seriously consider checking out the pits. You may be looking at soda-bl...

re: The Great Flood of 2016: Fill Out Disaster Forms NOW. Link Inside! - ultralite
The gage may have a vertical datum it is referencing to (NAVD88 maybe). See if the flood map has the same vertical datum to be sure. Many times river gages do not go by a specific datum but if they do, it should be specified....

re: How do surveyors determine elevation of land? - ultralite
[quote] of the most boring jobs ever! Sat on side of the interstate for 10 hours watching a GPS antenna.[/quote] You're just doing it in the wrong spot. It's nicer sitting at a weir in the marsh catching redfish or crabs non-stop. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure it still takes that long if you are...

re: Putting line on spinning reel - help - ultralite
If it's already spooled, just open the bail with no lure on and let all the line out. Drag it in the grass or troll it behind the boat until all the line untwists....

re: Fishing LSU lakes - ultralite
If you've got time, get a 50 pound bag of cattle cubes (range cubes) from a feed store ($10) and chum up a spot for a few days. Go at the same time of day if possible. When you go to fish, throw out a can of corn in the same spot and use a few pieces of corn on the smallest hook you can find....

re: Best place to get a good rate on a boat loan? - ultralite
Good luck trying to sell that thing 5 years down the road. All those "take over my payments" ads just make me crack up. I'm not paying $12,000 for your $4,000 bass tracker that sat in the yard for a few years....

re: Any experience with bridge building at a camp? - ultralite
I did some survey work on a property up near Monroe once and the guys that hunted there had made a flatbed cable-car that spanned about 150' over a 25-30' deep ravine. Massive concrete blocks anchored each end. The cable car looked to be about 5'x10'. The cables themselves were 1" braided steel ...

re: Water seeping into wader seams - ultralite
Are yall using Flex Seal? If so, any success spraying it on breathable waders? One tip for finding potential leaks is to go in a dark room and pass a flashlight along all the seams from the inside while looking at the outside of the waders. Leaky seams will light right up....

Boating across Louisiana - ultralite
What's the farthest you've boated across Louisiana, only taking bayous, intracoastal, etc out of a small boat? I'm debating on making a trip to Cocodrie from just south of Lafayette in the near future. I'll be able to camp out on the party barge. I've got my route planned out and it's all in...

re: Truck rattles when hitting a bump... Update in OP** - ultralite
It sounds ridiculous but have you driven on a gravel road recently? I've had two instances where a small piece of crushed limestone got wedged between the frame and the cab floor. I could feel it in the floorboards but not in the steering wheel....

Most-inshore red spinoff: Stripers - ultralite
Any of yall get into a school of true stripers that weren't stocked in a lake/reservoir? I'm not talking about bar fish (white bass) or hybrid stripers (broken lines). I've gotten into a school of them in an eddy in Bayou Sorrel one summer. All 2-4 pounds and fought like reds....

re: Tacoma Talk - ultralite
I've got a 2010 4door 4x4 long bed. It gets about 16mpg and tows my 14' welded flat like it's not even there. I have to agree with diat150, the inside of my truck has features from a truck from the 90s with the addition of an auxiliary input jack and side airbags. They don't even sell one that ...

re: Wood Duck Boxes - ultralite
Looks good. Definitely not too late. I have 6 boxes and they will use them well into the summer. As others have said, add some fine mesh chicken wire to the inside for the chicks to climb out and a predator guard (cone). Snakes can definitely climb a 4x4 post. You can get the bedding materi...
