    WTB: Tandem Axle Flat Bed Car Hauler Trailer

    Looking to buy a 7x16 flat bed trailer. I want something that was designed and built to carry autos. I don't want a converted RV trailer. I am looking for something with a 7,000-lb or higher rating. I'm hoping to find something that's upto 10 years-old, that someone just doesn't need...

    Buoy 10 REPORT!

    I fricken (thanks T.Hoffman) LOVE this fishery. It's been an annual event for my family to spend a day or two fishing with Eric Linde every year at Buoy 10. We've probably been doing it for 10 years+. Some years are better than other, and this year did NOT disappoint! Day 1 - August 16th -...

    Three Days at Nootka Sound!

    Finally getting cleaned-up, and caught-up enough to get this report filed properly. Rumors have been flying, but let's set the record straight. LOL Left Olympia with 2/3 of my crew at 0400 on Tuesday 7/16. Stopped in Federal Way to pick-up the last guy, and we rolled North. We loaded onto...

    SeaStar Steering Problem

    OK, this is really starting to bug me, and I'm running out of time before I take the boat to Nootka. At slow speed, the steering works fine. When running; to alter course to port, I have to spin the wheel about 1.5 revolutions before the motors move. To Starboard, the reaction is almost...

    Thinking about getting a SPOT GPS before my Nootka trip, so I can at-least let my wife know I'm OK periodically. She worries, doesn't sleep when I can't/don't check-in. Does anyone have any experience with these things? Good/Bad, or other suggestions? Thanks in-advance!

    Kicker steering tie-bar?

    What's the best way to tie my T9.9 to my F150 for steering? I like the bars that are on the front vs EZ Steer type. I want to be able to easily disconnect it, if I want to steer with the tiller vs the wheel. BlackVelvet, someone mentioned you might have an answer?

I want to represent, but don't really have the room for the BIG stickers that are for sale in the "SHOP." Does anyone have a couple they can...

    How to: "Raise the Roof;" fitting a 12-ft tall boat through an 8-ft door

    When I moved into this house 5 years-ago, it was a thought of mine to someday install a taller door in my shop. The Trophy I had at the time fit under the 8-ft door with the rag-top down, so while the project was on my "want" list, it was never a priority. -- All that changed when I sold the...

    Have twin Yamaha main's, want to add kicker

    So, I want to add a kicker, but I'm not 100% sure which side I should put it on; Port or Starboard. The boat has a slight list to STBD already, when at rest. Not noticeable while on-board, just when looking at the boat tied to the dock. Something a kicker on the other side would level-out...

    Garage/Shop Doors?

    Looking at remodeling my shop to accommodate the SeaSport. This means I'm going to need a new door. I'm going from a 8-high x 16 wide to a 13 or 14-high x 16 wide. Does any BD'er do this sort of work, or have a recommendation? I'm in Olympia.

    Puget Sound Shrimp Dates Posted - NOT what was expected? After all the work that was put-in on-behalf of the recreational shrimpers, I had been left with the impression we'd see more days on the water this year.

    Furuno Sonar/Radar/GPS RDP-149 NavNet vx2 Combo Unit

    Hydraulic Steering Question, and Propeller Feedback?

    Shrimp Pots

    I've got three pots, each with a basic buoy and 400-ft of line. These are proven shrimpers. You'll need to add your own weight and bait containers. You'll probably want another buoy for each too. $50 for each, or $120 for all three. I'm in Olympia. PM or call 2O6-499-O84O.
