Gas tank question

might check out the fuel pump, what kind of motor do ya have? A lot of them are vacuum diaphram. Although it seems it would have trouble pulling the fuel from a full tank as well. I with you on the crack or whole in the pickup tube.

easy way to store jars of pork rinds, scents, dyes, etc

I LIKE IT!!!
I don't use scents that much, but what a great idea for all sorts of stuff you want to keep handy. With the ends open it won't hold water ether.

Not Tin but picked up a crawdad Jon Boat

Have you had it in the water? Never been in one, heard they are really stable. Saw two above size guys fishing in one. Seemed to be doing ok.

New fuel tank

That's a vent, it's at the highest point of the tank or the shallowest with the angle of the tank. He put that in because he used a non-vented gas cap. But I could put a piece of copper tubing in there bent to the same angle of the tank to get it all the to the bottom. I will just have to vent the t...

New fuel tank

No feelings hurt here. I welcome other peoples input. That's why I'm on this forum. I've got a lot of great ideas from here and even learned what not to do from people posting their mistakes on here too. I did put a quick disconnect on the tank so if the fuel line gets damaged you can disconnect it ...

Any Hammock users?? Camping or otherwise?

I have backpacked a lot, and I used a hammock all thru Central America and the Appalachian Trail. I have even stayed at hammock hotels, you rent one their hammocks, or bring your own. Very comfortable to sleep in. When I younger (and single) had one hanging in living room. I preferred it to the couc...

CraigsList boat = no title = no numbers = no HIN =

I know what ya mean with ever state beening different. Almost nothing happens in North Carolina with out a notary. And in Georgia you can own a vehicle with out a title if it's so old. And when you buy a jeep with fiberglass tub (body) and the serial numbers are different from the vin numbers on the...

1236 jon big enough or not

Is it a flat bottom? I've got a 12/36 flat bottom, I'm 160 with a 9.8 hp 4-stoke. It works just fine.....do I wish it was bigger? Yes, but it very easy to manage alone. I even stand up and cast sometimes to stretch my legs, from the bottom not the seat. I mostly fish sitting though, just a lot more ...

CraigsList boat = no title = no numbers = no HIN =

Pretty scary.....if you think about it. If somebody steals my boat, goes to dmv....says it's an old pre-70's and get a new set of numbers.
