    Why low RPM on outboard muffs?

    I’ve been told anything much above idle is too much, may up to 800-1000 rpm safely? The reason I was given is because the impeller isn’t completely submerged and the hose won’t keep up with the demand. In turn it will burn up your impeller. I don’t know how true that is, but that’s how it...

    Illegal to interfere with fishing and hunting: what's the recourse

    The individual with a bullhorn could have easily called DFW, and had a right to call if the guy was fishing in a no fishing zone. He as the fisherman has a right to report that person for harassment. I still think a flotilla would be a good time regardless. Haha

    I don’t think you’ll have a problem taking a few fuel jugs, but if you can, an auxiliary fuel tank in your truck bed might be a safer option.

    Deep V versus Mod V = So Cal Fishing

    Parker’s handle SoCal just fine. The deep V will cut through the chop easier, but the tend to roll a bit more on drift. They also consume more fuel because more of the hull is in the water. Bigger engines work better for deep V’s as well. The mod V is a flatter hull, so less hull is in the...

    Two different animals. SoCal waters are usually pretty tame, but once you get past SCI it can get a bit nautical.

    I haven’t applied it to a boat, but I had a Ford 302 in a 65 Falcon. I changed the the points and condenser to an MSD electronic ignition, MSD box and distributor. Noticeable bump in power, and a huge jump in fuel economy. Also carbed with a Holley 650DP w/ mech. secondaries. That car was fun...

    I’m probably the last guy qualified for wood identification, and I could use some lessons in proper woodworking. I do like the idea of building it myself. Yes, my current engine is a 41A, but it’s frozen. That’s why I bought the 41B.

    I don’t have an answer for any of your questions. I bought the engine about a month ago, and I’ll be installing it over the winter season. It doesn’t have a pyrometer, but I’ve definitely considered adding one.

    Hoop Netting For Spiny Lobster From Piers/Jettys?

    Give any pier a shot. I couldn’t tell you if any are better than others, but plenty of lobster have been caught from piers. Just make sure to have your lobster report card and no more than two apparatuses ie; one rod and one hoop net, or two hoop nets, or two rods.
