    Deckhand salary?

    You would think with the passage of time it would be better... it’s not. It’s about the same. It’s a young mans game, the pay, the hours, the physical labor... But it is an experience unlike any other if you are a young guy. It will shape your life and set you up for success later life when you...

    Tragic call for help on the 312

    This was on qualified the other day.... So scary, looks like they were diving off the beach but he had a buoy with a flag, you can see it 24 seconds in.

    Better casting live bait rod.

    I have found it is more in a function of practice / form than it is rod. What I mean by that is, you can get a slow action rod and it will really load up in the initial part part of the up swing but if you are not letting go at the right time it will do no good. With that said, I actually...

    Insurance went up 27%

    After BoatUS/Geico tried to shaft me I went with Sea Insure (Sea Tow's Version) and couldn't be happier.

    Battery Charger questions

    You should be fine with the Promariner. You can certainly find it cheaper other places. Also, if you are only running two banks you don't need the "plus" version, that version can support 3 banks. Whereas the standard version is for 2 banks. The nice thing with this charger for the price range...

    18 Gallong Make Matt Marine Bait Tank Help

    I have always had the best luck with 7 to 7 1/2 minutes. You want to have the water turning over at that rate to make sure it is still fresh and clean. If it is under 7 minutes you would have a higher flow which could damage the bait, over 7 minutes and you run the risk of the bait loosing...

    What Wash Down Pump do you run?

    You both just gave me a great business idea... roll that up and put it on some plastic and go stand outside North Gate Market and sell it as a face mask which reduces age related wrinkles or something! Genius!!!!

    What Wash Down Pump do you run?

    Pro-tip: For all non-immediate purchases I use a website called Keepa, it's a price tracker for Amazon. You punch in the link to whatever it is you want to buy and it shows you historical pricing over whatever period of time you select. I then look back at the lowest price it's been in a year...

    Jabsco Hot Shot 6 GPM. That thing is badass. Got it on a flash sale off Amazon for $84. Worst Marine sells them for $340.

    Illegal to interfere with fishing and hunting: what's the recourse

    If we all show up for a flotilla I may just have the hankering to have my shirt off and be sun bathing myself like a hauled out knot head on my engine compartment in the banana hammock. Just a fair warning to everyone. She can’t point an LRAD if she is blinded.

    Illegal to interfere with fishing and hunting: what's the recourse

    So let me get this straight, there you were... lawfully fishing, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, minding your own business when out of no where some yuppie bastard deliberately acted in complete disregard for your safety causing you to fall in your boat and seriously injure yourself and cause...

    What type of waterproof sealant to use?

    Looking at the pictures I would probably opt for silicone. The reason being is both 4200 and 5200 are adhesives whereas silicone is a sealant. In a perfect world I would feel more comfortable using 4200 but the problem you will run into is trying to pull it free in the future. Yes you can use a...
