Hol-Tite handle

21 October 2015 - 02:10 AM

Been using Hol-tite suction handles for 20 years to hold me in place when I dive my bottoms



used to get 2 years out of one before the suction did not hold well.

Couple years ago, they started to wear out after a single season.


Now I am getting half a season out them.

I am trying to figure out what is going on.


The design looks the same as 2 decades ago.

I am not sure if the material is not as good as years ago, or they newer bottom paints leave a film that make the suction cups not want to hold on.


Using Petit SR60+ for bottom paint


Anyone else notice this?

if you are going to 2-time your girl, do not film it...

Feds mulling adding breathalyzers start systems into all new autos

The clever drunks just have their kids blow into the system or touch the start button anyways.



Lets ALL pay the price and inconvenience for a small group of twits.

What is the ROI on this project?




Are powerboats build for asshats by asshats?

18 August 2015 - 12:32 AM

Crossing Chesapeake Bay early Sunday morning I was motoring at 6.3 knots, as there was zero wind and the bay was like a huge pond.

AIS showed a 1100 foot container ship headed for Baltimore at 18.3 knots.

Though I was close to the main channel, the big guy powered right by me (not that I was going to cross that bad boy).

There was a tiny wake that my boat barely noticed put out by this container ship.


an hour later I intersect with some meathead in his 35 footer sport fisherman.

He is going about 18 knots too.

But he is putting out this huge wake.


So my question is how can a mega ton 1100 foot vessel not put out a wake, but some dumbass with a power boat push out a PIA wake.

Do the powerboat designer do this shit on purpose?

Could they design a hull that didn't put out big waves?
