    CHI-MAC Race Wx

    Seriously how long have you been boating?  Looking for a dead body at this point is honestly not a good use of assets and there time, as noted he wont be floating.  As for the ax you clearly have to grin with the CPD and others in and around the play pen, you are aware they aren't simply...

    CHI-MAC Race Wx

    Seriously have you ever done a SINGLE SAR CASE?  I have five years of duty doing just this exact thing.  You're comments are truly clueless, and when presented with the facts you continue to double down.  Once of the hardest calls to make is when to call off the search.  This entire ordeal is...

    almost a boat yard disaster

    Have you been around many boat fires, let alone boat yard fires.  Boats being petroleum tend to want to burn when there is heat near them and they just keep burning....   The best thing you can do in the case of any boat fire is remove boats near the boat on fire.

    "Dash Cam" GoPro or Garmin?

    Just as a note the Virb XE does have the Accelerometer and built in GPS so you get heading as well. not having this function turned on will drain the battery quicker but you get a ton of info from it as well. Basically with the Ultra your stepping up to 4k getting a viewable screen and voice...

    If thats 90' I hate to think how big those helm seats and wheel would be.... Since we seem to be throwing out random boats, I'll say Marlow Hunter.. for the worst of all possible options (are they even still in business) Or wait maybe this is the new bigger Stiletto

    Suzuki Outboards

    The main reason the commercial guys have made the switch is because unlike Yamaha they don't differentiate between commercial use and rec use so they are getting the longer warranty out of them and then they just off them when the hours pass the limit. Doesn't hurt that they cost less then a...
