  1. That wire looks pretty thin too. It may not react well to a 55amp draw from a 12v trolling motor.
  2. It looks like it may be used to drain the bowl for winterizing the motor.
  3. I remember by dad doing that at Radio Shack.
  4. The U.S. resisted lock downs and had the most cases and deaths in the world; and among the worst on a per-capita basis. I am not seeing how that proves that lock downs don't work; however, I can see it being used as a pretty strong arguement for the exact opposite. They are doing better now that many of their people have been vaccinated. That doesn't mean that lock downs don't work, it means that vaccines do work.
  5. Total rip off. If you shop around, you can get one for under a grand. 😉 although that is without hooks.
  6. Some of the comments remind me of a story in the news a few months ago. A mother was having discipline issues with her daughter. The daughter ended up being charged with assault when the mother took her cell phone away. This was followed up by the daughter stealing a phone from one her classmates. She was convicted on both accounts. She was given the chance to avoid detention with conditions that included attending school regularly. She failed to stick to this condition and rarely attended morning class or completed assignments. Thus, she ended up to having serve time in a juvenile detention centre. Do any of you remember the headline about the teenaged girl who was sent to jail for failing to complete her homework? Yeah, that was her.
  7. License free fishing on Valentine's Day. And a long weekend to boot. If it wasn't for Covid, this could have been the more romantic weekend ever...
  8. They damaged by driveway when they installed fibe and have refused to have it fixed.
  9. Free speech means that he doesn't go to jail for saying it. It doesn't mean that he still gets to be a member of the caucus.
  10. Brand new in the box propellor for Mercury outboard 10.3" diameter by 13" pitch with 13 splines. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1544124108
  11. Locallized swelling has been reported for the Covid vaccines. 😉 Prior to Viagra, Upjohn sold Caverject, which was a locally injectable aid. Considering that vaccine requires two injections several weeks apart, I think I can wait for a slower release.
  12. We do have manufacturing facilities in Canada. What we don't have is government controlled facilities capable of producing the required quantities of vaccine. I know there was a facility in Quebec that could have been up and running by year end (if they had starting preparing several months ago). They would have been able to make about 125,000 doses per month. We need more than that to get this under control. The decision was to purchase from other countries instead of making too little of our own.
  13. Electric vehicles are heavier than gas powered ones. That is a bigger disadvantage in boats than it is for cars & trucks. Electric vehicles are also more expensive upfront, but are cheaper to run. But since most people don't put nearly as many miles on their boats as they do on their cars & trucks, there won't be nearly as many savings in operating costs to offset the initial purchase price. I think it will be a long time before fully electric boats are common.
  14. I guess I'd be too big to ride an electric Beaver then. 😉
  15. Have you looked at G3 boats? They're owned by Yamaha, so you should be able to get a package. But, yeah, most of the other boats seem to be either owned by, or otherwise associated with Mercury.
