You've got me hungry for a mess of Mullet now!

I wonder how easy they are to catch at Wakulla Beach?

if your "borrowing" the boat don't worry about it. The only things I've ever broke on a boat was things that were mine. Borrowed seems to fare better. I think that's what makes me more worried :) The first time I took this boat out some old guy backed into the trailer in the Winn Dixie pa...

Put in at the Lighthouse and take a left. . .

This weekend was my first time heading towards Grey Mare rock. I have heard horror stories of evil rocks over there that like to eat gel coat and never thought of taking my 32' over that way. Now that I am borrowing a 17' SeaHunt. I figured I could brave the shallows. My question is, is it easier to...

I don't know an answer to your question, but I have one just like it. I decided not to get the topo map with my Garmin Vista, now I want to see if there is a chart for it.

It would be nice to find one of just this area.

You can add SeaFoam to gas or oil (or diesel I think). I wouldn't try to clean the crankcase too much on an old 4 stroke, but if you get water in the oil it will clean it out!

If you want to de-carbonize a 4 stroke, make sure the engine is at normal operating temp first and then spray/pour the SeaFoam in. Let the engine choke down on a big gulp and let sit for a few minutes. Start it back up and watch the carbon burn out. I like to pour it straight down the carb / throttl...

I love the Seafoam. I use it in everything. I had a big boat once with twin 454s. The starboard engine got some stuck valves and drank some gulf water up the exaust once. After fixing the valves and one oil change with seafoam you couldn't see any more milky oil. We changed it again just to be sure,...

Capt Reggie, I took your advise and went after some of those little blue eyed monsters. I haven't been scalloping in 3 years, but these seem to be more "meatier" that those from the other side of the bay. I only brought home 4 galons in the shell and they shucked out to over 1 qt! The boys...
