    Drag problem EX-30

    Got a new EX-30 for Xmas, my second one. Just loaded it with line and went to set the drag. The drag knob will tighten down but it won't back off very far. It stops and the drag pulls very hard to the point where it is hard to pull line. My other EX backs way off. Is there anything I ca do to...

    PV Hitch Hiker

    Heading off shore yesterday when I looked down and saw a big Iguana walk casually to the stern of our boat. Scared the crap out of me. We finally moved him up to the bow where he looked over the rails and I think was a little surprised to see he was about 5 miles off shore. It sat up there for...

    La Cruz fuel dock - Ethanol?

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the fuel sold at the La Cruz fuel dock has ethanol in it? We have been keeping our tanks topped off when we are going to be away for awhile and the boat was on the trailer. Always told this helps avoid condensation in the tank. We have had water issues in the...

He walks out on...
