Which hour/RPM meter for a new Merc 20 HP?

I ordered a new Merc 20 HP four stroke outboard, and I'm looking for suggestions on a hour meter, ideally one that reads RPM too. My dirtbike has one, and I've come to appreciate it a lot. Pic below. The new outboard is a 2 cylinder, tiller model, with power tilt & electric start. Are there any "pre...

Does anyone keep a log book for their boat?

I'm curious whether anyone keeps a log book for their boat? Combined with an hour meter, it would help track maintenance and warranty items. A guy could also keep maps of the lakes he frequents inside the log book. It would be kinda novel to review past trips and lessons learned periodically.

What's a good price point for a decent spinning rod/reel?

The Pflueger President combo was where I landed when looking at price point alone, without first hand knowledge. It's good to hear some of you like them.

I'm just looking for competent gear, not to win money. Thanks for the advice.

What's a good price point for a decent spinning rod/reel?

I'm looking to get a couple new rods & spinning reels for myself, and would appreciate some advice from the collective. My background is mostly trout fishing, from shore or in a canoe with light $30 spin casters. Historically I went cheap because I never had a lot of money to invest, and teenage thr...

CAUTION - using Boiled Linseed Oil or BLO - FIRE danger!

When BLO cures it generates an exothermic chemical reaction, meaning it generates heat.

So you don't want a pile of rags, or a spot where heat can build up.

But mostly I just wanted to use a 50-cent word pop taught me a couple decades ago.

Where I come from - performance motorcycle riding background

Cool to see all the great bike pics!

I still race off road motorcycles, as an amateur. I'm nearly 40 yeads old, and the the body hurts, so I no longer race an entire series. I just cherry pick the easy races. I still love riding, and always will!
