I have a Yahama 115 2003 4stroke and was considering hooking up a red lite to the overheating buzzer. Has anyone ever done this I figure if I would not hear the buzzer then I would see the lite.

Any interest in helping me get the TED law changed so that a handicapped or senior citizen can use a mechanical device to shrimp for recreational purposes. I believe it is a law that needs to change

Google earth waypoints to Lowrance units
I do not know of any CD or DVD that offers an instruction in the use of that unit.

I can accommodate you if you wish. If so contact me at

Check the post that asks basically the same question or my Story in the current issue of the Louisiana Sportsmam Magazine concerning Google Earth waypoints.

If we are to remove the Confederate Flag from the United States then we need to remove all flags except the Stars and Stripes One crazy person does not mean All people of the south are racist. It just means we have too many crazy people in this world who want to be on the news.

How many trout are you aloud to catch in one day? Does it change if you give your fish away? What happens if you and 3 others fish catch 100 trout and you give yours to the others now do they have too many in their possion?
