  1. Being a 4 stroke it should still have enough oil lubing it. Burning the top of the piston, entirely possible. Unfortunately it's a Merc and we all know they make good anchors.
  2. 2 stroke, yes change the plugs.
  3. Found this on Walleye Central, I have problems believing it though. Good results for Four-Strokes should be 180-210 PSI, and Two-Strokes should be around 110-130 PSI.
  4. Either a pair of 3500lb axles, one pair with brakes or a 5200lb axle with brakes. If it was me I would go dual axle, they tend to float better over rough roads and don't bounce as much as a single.
  5. #1, what does the the boat, motors, batteries, gas and equipment weigh? From there you can safely look at a more robust axle, springs and tires. What weight are the old tires rated for? How old were they. There's lot of unanswered Q's.
  6. I got mine from Praxair in Barrie, but most of those places that carry compressed gasses like O2 acetylene, etc will have it.
  7. So that's how all those tarps get up in the trees, lol.
  8. An anti itch pen for after the incessant bites. If you're staying for more than 2-3 days in warmer weather, get a small block of dry ice and put it in the bottom of your cooler. It will keep everything very cold and lasts quite a long time.
  9. Ok, so what are we supposed to look at, the white pail, plastic bag, the black thing with a silver knob end or what?
  10. Ever look at the price of an oxtail, it would be cheaper to get a floosie to hop in the pot for ya.
  11. MEATHEAD seasoning eh, that's the crude moniker for army police, amongst a host of other words.
  12. What he said, especially on the Evinrude, parts may become a problem with no fix in the future. I would not put that one on my list.
  13. I can relate to this dilemma, about 25 years ago I used to go fish with an old codger, poor bugger bad bad close up vision, used to tie his hooks, make him climb out on the boulders at Thornbury to surf cast, etc, now I look back and say I must have been a mean bugger to make him do that.
  14. Amazon.ca has a similar one, https://www.amazon.ca/Quality-Mark-28801-Bow-Step/dp/B007D2N212?th=1&psc=1 seems like all the rest are south of the border. Bass Pro.com also has some, maybe they will ship up here to the store.
  15. Back out this morning for a look, found a nice patch with bigger bulbs, got a grocery bag full. I would estimate another 10 days or so and then it will be high time to pick.
  16. The hypocrisy of it is they wizz and moan and want you to come to their towns and cities to support their businesses, but that rate is nuts.
  17. Not to be outdone by other towns, Collingwood has increased their greed, $10 and hour up to $50 for the day for parking and $10 to launch. Not going there anymore.
  18. I can't see the gas staying this high forever, sooner or later people won't be able to afford to drive to work and you can only do so much car pooling.
  19. Went and checked the leek patch on thursday, they're up but need a bit more heat to plump up the bulbs. Picked a few and roasted them with oil in the oven, mixed with pasta and left over chicken and mushroom, yum.
  20. Yamaha or Suzuki and none of this 2 stroke baloney, Yamaha is a bit more, $3900 for basic pull start, $4200 for electric. Suzuki has a pull for $3.4k and electric $4.2 cash tax inc. So you save a bundle on the Suzuki. Personally I would never touch a Merc unless you want a heavy anchor.
  21. This works for either regular white or a medium rye bread. If you're making white just use 3 3/4 cup white, for rye split as below. 2 1/4 cups white flour, 1 1/2 cups rye flour (bulk barn). 1/3 cup sugar, pinch of salt 1 pack of Fleishmans fast rising yeast and 6 teaspoons of Fleishmans bread booster. 1 1/2 cups of milk and 4 tablespoons butter (no margi, yuck). Mix dry ingredients in the mixer bowl, warm the milk for about 2 minutes in MW with butter til it's melted, stir and add to the dry mix. I run the mixer with the dough hook for about 4 minutes on #2 speed. Pre heat oven to about 150F for a couple minutes and turn off. Take the dough and knead it for about 2 minutes on a floured surface, and fit into a 9x4 inch bread pan, spray with PAM, (I prefer glass pan). Put into the oven for about 45-50 mins or until doubled. Take out of oven, preheat to 350F, insert loaf pan for about 23-25 minutes. Take it out of loaf pan onto a cooky grill and let it cool. Store in a paper bag, plastic will make it sweat too much. If the smell doesn't make you drool, you have covid. I found the Fleishmans bread booster made a big difference.
  22. I bet they taste the same if you were blindfolded.
  23. You want a foolproof bread dough recipe for white or rye bread, let me know I'll post it
  24. Good move, I bought one about 5-6 weeks ago, oh my what a difference compared to the old one. You can even get meat grinder attachments for that one. Making bread dough, takes about 10 minutes.
