  1. Nice Rich! I’m jealous you guy’s are fishing.
  2. I think he meant the difference between a 50 hp and a 60 hp is carburetion. So if you found one off of a 60 hp it should work.
  3. I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy new year. May $100.00 bills fill your pockets and big fish fill your coolers.
  4. $1.31 around hear for gas and $2.43 diesel
  5. I got a week to go fishing in May with a promise of no hassle that I won’t be home for mothers day.
  6. Mark, What ever you do don't get Rock Band! My son got it all for Christmas and the noise that comes out of his room makes me want to get out of the house. Have fun with it.
  7. Cool! I liked the snow last year also.
  8. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
  9. A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door. SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?' DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man. SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?' DAD: 'That's none of your business . Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily. SON: 'I just want t o know.. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?' DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.' SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down. SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?' The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities. ' The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often The man went to the door of the little boy's room and o pened the door. 'Are you asleep, son?' He asked. 'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy. 'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.' The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father 'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled. 'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied. 'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.' The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with someone you love. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives....
  10. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!!
  11. Great Post I Found this on another site. xerox is doing something cool If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services. How amazing it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is free and it only takes a second. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them. This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you. Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do. We can never say enough thank you's.
  12. If they are hooked in parallel and you kill them, you can't start the engine. A better way is to use a switch. If you kill the battery, turn the switch and you are on the way home. Older engine you can switch from one to the other battery while the engine is running. Don't do that with newer engines.
  13. Another boat ??? Radar? More fishing time next year with good friends! What about you Rod?
