Wow, this thread makes me glad I live in Canada. No need to worry about cost, just go to the doctor and get a referral, or go to ER.

Too much play in the suspension. You could jack up one axle and strap it off to the frame to hold it up, then you could use two. My dad used to do that to make the dual axle trailer more manoeuvrable...

I have the KMR-700. It's not bluetooth, unfortunately, but has USB 2.0 connection as well as the old ipod, iphone connector. I really like it. The dash unit is just the control for the head unit that...

You get what you pay for. Cheaper covers don't breathe, leading to mould problems. Also skiboatcovers reinforces seams and adds material at stress points like over the windshield. Sunbrella's...

I use dish detergent, mixed about 3 parts water to 1 part dish detergent in a squeeze bottle. Much cheaper and easier to get than just about anything else and it works great.

Saw Bob Seger last night. His voice and energy are the same as they were when I saw him 25 years ago. He's 69 years old and can still rock, not to mention his sax player, Alto Reed (also the best...

Don't use a wet cell for a PWC. They take too much pounding. Spend a bit more and buy an AGM. They aren't that much more money and I just finished my 3rd season with mine. It's used infrequently and...

My question would be, if the bottom is that badly gouged up he must have also hit the prop/running gear. Could have a bent shaft/prop/rudder. I'd walk away unless it's a screaming deal and you can...
