    Dri-dek or Seadek Pros & Cons

    Don't know about Dri-Dek but Seadek is very good on heat and durability. When I looked at the cost for me it was better to go with real teak. Never tried to remove either of those but I'll bet it is not an easy task and would leave enough damage that you would have to paint or recover. I do...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    First a huge bunch of Kudos to you for being a true patriot and (IIRC) sending prayers for success of the incoming administration. My guess is that you have done the same for past admins as well. We need more people with that same attitude. As far as what happened on 1/6/2021 in his speech...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    Trump fight for someone else's freedom?? Has not happened yet and never will. I would like to know were are the current "freedom fighters" when things like citizens united and the patriot act went down. Did you people support McCain/Feingold back in the day? Trump is only a symptom of the...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    +1 on that. IIRC the majority of times the public sees the same thing and spilts up power in the congress. 2018 is a good example. The Republicans are going to have some splainin to do!

    The lack of securing the congress was not by accident or mis-management.

    Election Fraud - non-political

    I vote my conscience. In the last decade or so the Repuplican/Democrat choices IMO have been so poor that my vote would have been wasted if I have voted for either one of them. Why bother? Because I believe our republic needs the participation of all it's citizens. Will the candidate I voted...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    Then you likely know Eric, Ivanka and Jr were officers in the now closed Trump Foundation after it was pretty clearly shown they were using the foundation's money to pay for campaign and business expenses outside the foundation. Again pot/kettle. Reality is Hunter nor the Trump kids really...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    Looks like a pot/kettle deal to me. Where would Eric, Ivanka and JR be without that last name. We would have never heard of them just like Hunter. Why is Hunters dealings coming up now when that investigation has been going on since 2018? Just the latest "look how bad the other side is"...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    Maybe you noticed that there has been a big shift in news media for what - maybe a decade now? Closings, consolidations, and mergers. Started before 2016 and will continue past 2020. Without having a spotlight to stir things up including the base Trump has no power in politics. All that "enemy...

    Election Fraud - non-political

    I think that the endless Trump bashing by some of the media will die down reasonably quickly. Certainly there will be a few who keep beating the dead horse but most people are really tired of hearing about it. I know I am and I don't watch much of the big news outlets crap. Trump needs the...

    While some maybe more than others EVERYONE should practice and use that skill. Funny how many things that seem "true" and believable fall apart when you use it.

    13ft whaler restoration

    Karlow is spot on. I have cut open 2 13' Whalers that had decent water intrusion. One had the whole deck cut off and sat open over the whole summer. The exposed 1/2" of the foam would dry but thats was it. Stick your finger into it and water would run out. I believe what happens is once water...

    Adding a bait tank...who should I hire?

    2 scoops in a 40G tank would be at the upper end of capacity even in a top tier tank.
