    When you say a navy anchor, do you mean the classic navy tattoo kind with two big hooks? I've never seen anyone actually use one of those on a lake. I use a Danforth/fluke anchor in muddy conditions....

    You will be amazed at the difference coming from a DD. You won't have any regrets. You will have plenty of wake through an advanced/expert level. More than enough for single invert tricks. I'm sure...

    Careful with your estimates. Personally, I don't think you can do upholstery, carpet and a trailer for $5k. I'm not sure you could do either the upholstery or the trailer for $5k.

    As far as the question about binding setup, I'd recommend sticking with double high wraps. With a knee at less than 100% I would want to stay with what I was most comfortable with. As you found out...

    What concerns me about that photo is the missing brake pedal. Did you take it out? I know lots of people like to just do the "cool" coast to a stop, maybe with a little turn, or even worse they just...

    The confusion is "wind chill" vs. insulation. Wind chill doesn't matter. Dry objects don't feel wind chill: 20 degrees is 20 degrees if the air is perfectly still or if the wind is blowing 100 miles...

    I hate those days. I start questioning my ability to even perform a simple oil change!

    I have this problem no matter how long I run on the garden hose. The only solution I've found is to run for...

    Carbide grit hole saw for through holes

    If you need to cut a through hole in your hull for your ballast system or something else, I would recommend using a carbide grit hole saw. This really is the "right" tool for cutting a hole in...

    I think you're on the right track with a 12' door. The previous owner of mine had a 10x10 and had some damage to the door trim where the tow point didn't quite fit the first time - it was close. He...

    Just watch out for the total price with $200 shipping. I get that it won't be cheap but $200 seems a bit deceitful.

    I thought about that spot which should work well while moving due to the fresh air but I think that area would really cook in the sun without air movement.

    Yeah, just use teak oil. It's really easy to keep it looking that good if you just apply a bit of oil occasionally.

    I would think that somewhere over by the helm controls, maybe protected by the drivers seat would be reasonable. You may occasionally get sun on it but I can't think of anywhere better. Unless it...
