The service manager at the marina where I used to work used to say “we’re two weeks out” all the time, but refused to actually use a calendar to schedule things... that was one of our biggest disagreements, in fact.
That’s an interesting idea, and makes sense... but the pipe here is about 50' long and the clog is likely at the far end, in the form of years-compacted gravel. I think I’ve gotta dig it up to clear it.
Leaking via rubrail is pretty common. The screws can loosen up, or extra holes are drilled that don’t get filled, or the seal between the hull and cap isn’t sealed right from the factory, or someone replaced the rubrail and drilled a ton of new holes... lots of ways for it to happen. It’s just a matter of how much the…
If you have enough money, you just don’t care about that kind of depreciation. It’s what it costs to own the thing you want, that’s all. It doesn’t follow that you’re then bad at managing money, unless the depreciation hit puts you in a bad position. Someone buying a car like that probably might more in the stock…
Well, yeah. But I have 5 acres of land and my only neighbor is about 350' away. I’m at the end of a dead-end road, and can do donuts to my heart’s content on our cul-de-sac every time it snows. And I can park as many cars in my driveway, or just, on the road, or in my woods, as I want.
Yeah, not much else to say. At least I’m getting hydraulic assistance this weekend.
Love that movie. And I STILL chuckle whenever a contractor or someone says “ah, maybe a week or two” or “week after next” I just hear “TWO WEEKS TOPS” in my head.
Sometimes the rubrail is not well sealed, and water can seep in while underway at certain speeds, or while cornering. It’s easy to see if that’s happening, just drive around a bit and see if the rubrail ever touches the water. If so, reach up under there (carefully - there’s usually jagged fiberglass and the ends of…
Ugh, that sucks. One of the other places I’ve been on and off over the years is a forum for Correct Craft boats, mostly focused on the older ones. There are a few VERY active members there who have opinions about everything. But man, if you need a problem solved with your boat, and you’re willing to listen and be…
Eh, hard to say without feeling it... but I guess I wouldn’t worry about it being dangerous. Most often the control box itself will be bolted together very securely, while its mounting to the boat can get loose because there’s so much leverage on it via the throttle handle.
Wow, the impact bent the crossbar and damaged the wheel on the bike, but not the car?!
I’m not sure you spelled any words right.
Dell does have software that will do this. You go to support.dell.com and download SupportAssist which detects your service tag and all your local hardware, then suggests a list of drivers, and because you’re using Dell’s tool, it won’t be spam/viruses/bloatware/porn. I do this often for computers at work. Most often…
Bah, only two things not working? That’s pretty good!
There has been a series of thoughtful discussions and meetings on screen time with our elementary school. There’s no perfect solution (in terms of the amount of time) but there certainly are better ways to manage the content...
I love a good storm like that. We can usually see them coming from our house, as the tend to come from the west. Great fun to watch.
No worries at all, I thought your response was excellent, helpful, and totally on point.
I suspect it is, with the fading on top surfaces.
Sounds like a great decision. And yeah, I find that when I don’t have one drink on weeknights, I’m less likely to have more on the nights when I do. I’ve just been in a rut over this summer, especially during our vacation week. I didn’t count the Coors Lights but I expect it was very many.
That looks amazing.
