    Light setup for making squid

    I was shopping for lights for my new shop and found these 140 watt lights that supposedly replace 500 watt metal halide. Look perfect for a squid light One on each side mounted in a rod holder and 40,000 lumens of squid attracting light! Around $140 each I paid a lot more for my bulky 400 watt...

    Light setup for making squid

    I have a couple of 15 inch green fluorescent that are 12v that I use sometimes at work OK but nothing compared to the metal halide light 400 Watt metal halide light will probably take about 35 A to run on your inverter so I hope you have some big batteries if you plan on using them for a few...

    1992 Sea Ox 26’ Blue water pro

    Just a curious person here but that mileage of 1 mpg seems kinda low for a 26’ boat. What engine(s) did it have? I consistently get 2.3-2.8 on a multi day trip to the islands in my 24’ with a single gas v8. My range is around 200-230 with 94 gallon tank and I have put over 4,000 miles on the...
