Nice little writeup. Yep, Tate needs to liven up on the vids a tad. Gets the point across though.

Sounds great. My daughter is leaning towards being a pilot. She has done the Young Eagles a few times and is great in school taking all kinds of AP classes.

Did get mom moved today, but it was a long day for sure. Still more to do and move, but the worry is gone now (plus her alarm went off at 0700 again)

Plus I watched my daughter drive and dad is going to need to step in fast. Mom has taught her to drive straight is about it. Seeing a U turn and 3 point scared the crud out of me.

Good thing you weren't there, they might be looking for a body.

Firearms / Re: Suppressed 22 options?
« on: September 03, 2018, 12:00:08 AM »
Hate when I miss a good thread. I got a Savage (22lr) and a Ruger (300aac) the same time last year. They are both great rifles but I really like the accutriger on the savage. Only dislike on the ruger is NOW it will take a regular AR magazine and mine takes the rotary.

I would love to suppress both, but not going to happen in this state for sure.

Yep, 22ammo is dirty (powder) but I always get coated bullets. I think that helps overall with the barrels too.

She does nice work, does she need coaxing or does she have the eye for it all alone?

Happy Birthday Sean, wish I was around that age. I am up with Don.

Just retuned the LBZ with my old DSP5 tune after running the stock to smog it. (ran like a dog, bad mileage)

Actually moving mom today, her alarm went off again this AM (false and the neighbors got there first). Got her a new TV with wifi, 50 inch for $300.

70, better than I,,,,,,,,,,,,,

2 bills is not bad at all. Good luck on used though.

I can find used for my Emco all the time, but the price kills me!

This morning I started the dually to move it and the marker lights on the right side weren’t working.  That drives me crazy because that’s how I can tell if it’s running after remote starting from the house.

Then remembered that I had Superbright LED markers that I never installed.

Fixed that lickety split

Looks nice. Threaded adapters can be a bare to use on larger machines. I think you can get a Bison for a reasonable price.

Moving mom into her new home today. Got the bed yesterday and found a lift chair at the local 2nd hand store in nice shape.

Once she has a TV and few personal things the rest will follow quick.

Signing paperwork for mom today, move her in this weekend.

Darn crabcakes sound good!!!

Yep, you could loose a scout on that ship. Lots of space stuff to since it recovered the first appolo flights. They also RR planes in there too. I always wonder why there is an escalator though from the briefing room to flight deck?

So whats up on the house Dave?

TRN, dad didn't want me near the marines like he was. He pushed me towards the AF, but I never took the bait. Followed him anyway into LE after he retired from the military, then Dland security and onto Federal Police. He was around just long enough to badge me at graduation, was a great day.

My buddy used to hunt them the same up in near Berryessa, little to much for me at the time. Heck we can't use dogs now, not PC.

Bet those little tusks would hurt something awful in that area, well anywhere.

That was some good meat though. Nice work!

Yep, my daughter turns 16 in Oct, got her permit this summer. Wife has been letting her drive long before she got her permit, non by me yet as all I drive is the LBZ now. Out here you now have to have lessons to get a DL before you are 18. You also cannot drive your friends around for a  year after getting talk about rules of the road and such with her all the time, she is pretty level headed but gets upset easy.

My mom gave us a Camry and she will get that for now. Mom is being interviewed for placement today, hope to move her in by the weekend.

So is the trick to stand way back to make it look big? Anyway, not bad dear at all.

Did your dogs get to that last pig? We have some pretty big ones here at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains, love to get one sometime.

Oh, and all that blood with the last pic offends me  :facepalm: (not)

Nice work guys!

Think trim tabs would place little stress on a good transom. They spread the load so much but are the pricier fix of the 2.

Compared to a fin that places stress on the outdrive, which could lead to a very pricey issue.

Sounds like I'm on the right tract then. Picked up the oil change stuff last night, dang that killed a C note fast!

Maybe a little better throttle management is in order it the drive is coming out of the water at full throttle? Adjustable trim plates will help you get it up, they make auto also.

Some fins can be bolted onto the outdrive without drilling. The 4 holes most use will not weaken the outdrive, but the outdrive will push up on the stern just like trim tabs.

Do you trim once up on plane?
