Yeah I considered hydraulic but I just had a car go out, had to change the trailer axle, and trailer lights (thanks New Orleans). My wallet needs a break. Anyway, just took apart the helm... no teeth missing. I'll eat some lunch and reassemble with the new cable and see what's up. It was easy...
Last week I took the boat out and just as I was getting out, I lost steering. My question is - how do I know if this is the cable or the helm? I have a replacement cable already but when taking it out of the helm I noticed I can only steer starboard and steering port doesn't pull the cable back ...
[quote]It’s a big reason why I’m not getting a PHEV or an EV. [/quote] This doesn't make any sense. PHEV don't need charging stations because they can be charged overnight at home and can use gas. Don't like the charge line? Go to a gas station. Whatever your feelings are on EVs, all this surv...
Yeah I saw that today too. Seems like an awfully small area to dredge for any major project but I'm not engineer. ...
I actually saw some recently though I can't remember where. My thoughts on seeing them were literally to just leave them alone and hope they make more. Easy for me to say, I never fished with them. I only heard the stories from my Uncles and Grand Parents. According to them you could freeze them ...
In hindsight I think I should've done more of this. :lol:...
As the title says. Things looking quite cloudy in my world and I want to be prepared to have the best outcome for my kid that I can. I'm in St Tammany, not sure if that matters. ...
Haven't been by there in a while but last I drove by it looked like it was ready to open (about 6 months ago) so I think it's open. It's a totally different layout than the old one though....
Yeah, just go to your setting and clear your history. Youtube also let's you create infinite accounts, you can always just switch to a new one. ...

Yep, I don't even want to get the hook out of an alligator gar much less a shark. :lol:...

Thanks y'all! I like the idea of a cheap burner phone. I'll have to look into In Reach too. ...

Best cell service in the Marsh

Hey y'all, title says it all. I'm on Verizon and I don't even get a signal at the Marina. I'm not looking to have full bars out in Bay Boudreaux, but something I can text with near the marina would be great. What provider do y'all use?...
Nice job! Been a long long time since I caught one like that. ...

I have an ankona cayenne, and when it's just me (I'm not a big dude) and I don't bring an ice chest, I can get through 4 inches. Now I have to be clear, I'm just saying I can get through it. I'm not saying it's easy or something I do routinely. But if I need to get through a flat with 4-6" of wa...
You ain't lying. Especially this time of year that bayou is just chock full of gators....

[quote]Why aren't these boats more popular in Louisiana?[/quote] How did I miss this thread? Anyway, I own one and I would say they aren't more popular in Louisiana because: - Polling here is not very easy, you find yourself dealing with the mud far too often. - They are far more expensive th...
I think about this a lot. I don't have 500k, but I do have a good bit of extra cash. Assuming tomorrow I got a windfall and got it to 500k, I would probably sell my current house to turn that 500k into 650k-700k. From there I'd buy a property with a stream running through it somewhere north of Co...

Kayak fishing in those areas is some of the best kayak fishing you can do. However, you are limited by your lack of range, so the kayak spots are all the kayak spots. Here are some of my old ones.

Coming in late, I have a tohatsu 60 and I've had it for 4 years now. I don't have anything to compare it with as it's my first boat, but here's my take. 1. The fuel pump is very weak. This made the break in period awful for me because it felt like the engine kept dying. In reality, with the wa...
