  • Dear Community Members,

    Updated 9/29/20 - Upgrades have been pushed until 10/7/20

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change.

    What’s next?
    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 10/7/2020! The whole transition should take 30-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

          • I went sat in a misty rain and tested the prop. Used the top and bow cover. we and the boat interior stayed amazingly dry.

            Huge difference. 30 mph GPS @ 3200 rpm. It is the cruising prop of the Olympics.

            And a couple or it didn't happen pics.
            Dance with the waves,
            move with the sea.
            Let the rhythm of the water
            set your soul free.

              • Okay it must of happened I got tons of pics today.

                I took the old tent boat house down. New metal one went up. I cut and modified the tent one so it covers the tractor and lawnmowers.

                Kinda made me sad seeing the old tent boathouse coming down.

                And my homemade winterizing jug. On off valve and I got the double male hose made for it.
                Dance with the waves,

                    Yes thank you. Most importantly when it snows ZZZZZZZ not up all night knocking snow off the tent.

                            • Well I been just using it a while butt.........

                              Last trip it did not want to go into start mode. It finally went and we had out day out.

                              2 days ago I took the throttle control out and apart. Broke a little piece. Well I finally found it and the part number. Throttle only control shaft. It is 10 bucks.

                              Ican now take this thing apart and put it together in my sleep.

                              Issue seems to have been. Grease hardened into a clay like substance. The little pin binded and broke the part. I got it all cleaned now and ready for the new part
