    Trailer side rail

    I need to re-carpet the side rails on my trailer. Where is a good place to buy the carpeting? Also do I use 1/2" regular staples in my staple gun or something else to fasten the carpet to the boards? And is there anything else I should know before doing this. I'm pretty sure the wood is OK...

    Need Lingcod information

    Hi guys, I've never fished for Lilngs before and was wondering what is the best rig and bait for them. Does tide movement affect them and what time of day is best and at what depth? I have some frozen squid, jigs, irons and everything else except for some of Ed's lures. I sent him several...

    "End of Watch"

    Sean, I was on the SDPD for 35 years and I can't even count how many good friends I've lost. We just burried another one two weeks ago. It never gets any easier watching your brothers and sisters die. God bless everyone in law enforcement.

    Bouy readings

    I've been trying to figure out what to look for when checking the bouy readings. How can I tell if the ocean is calm enough to venture out in. Is it the swell height to seconds or wind wave heights or what. What numbers are good for a 20' CC boat at the Coronado Islands. Most of the time...

    Tax question

    Just got my 2008 tax assessment notice for my boat. Do they assess the boat only or do they include the motor and trailer also? The notice states that if I disagree with the assessment, and I do, to send in some proof of the value other than what they claim. You can do this with for sale ads...

    Stolen boat

    We used to hang thieves when they stole our horses. I think we should be doing the same thing when they steal our boats. The Coast Guard will probably find it drifting off shore with 10 illegals in it. Or it will be found on the beach somewhere in La Jolla.

    Sunglasses?

    I won a gift certificate for a pair of GATORZ sunglasses. I would never spend $150.00 on a pair of sunglasses because I'm always scratching them. These are made here in San Diego out of aircraft aluminum and the lenses can be replaced in about 10 minutes for $30.00 which I have already done...

    For those who don't belong to Costco they have a good deal going on. If you get an Amnerican Express card through Costco you get a refund on your total years purchase using the card. They are now offering 3% back on gas. So that equals to 9 cents off per gallon at the $3.00 per gallon price...

    Brake question

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll try using the liquid wrench method again and let it sit for a day or two since it's raining. I tried using a socket, 7'16", but I could feel it starting to round the points so I stopped. I think I'll try the vice grips and if that works I'll replace the valve...
