You can subscribe to WX and not pay the extra for XM. The weather is not a cheap subscription but since I already have it for the airplane, I can use the same account.

Traxxx is a special NSA dude... the actuator on his Maristar is setup to house a mini cruise missile available to protect us in any towel head threat...

I want the Garmin GPSMAP 536. The unit is 699.99 new and the radar another few hundred. So lets just say a grand.

Wakemakers ordered due to black Friday deals.

Saved just shy of $175.

3 new Johnson reversible pumps. (2) 750# rear locker backs. (1) 400# integrated bow sack.

Now this is getting real.

"No one on this board would come on here and say that Mexicans or Koreans are something undesirable about a particular place"...

Glad to see you living by the rules. No mentions of Mexicans, Koreans, or location. Good work my friend.
;-)

(I am attempting to use humor again. Please don't anyone be upset by this.)

Which LED rings are you buying? I am happy with my audio system atm, but I do a like of dusk and an occasional 2am cruise and adding LED rings to the speakers would be awesome.

I bought mine off a fellow TT member. SGoyal.

For some reason I got a bad batch and a few led lights went out on each so he sent me 4 new replacement rings and I just need to switch them out.

Here is a quick shot of what they look like in my boat.

Fyi these are the brightest on the market. They can be seen clearly in daylight.

When you went through the city did you go on the big lake? Where did you put in? I really want to go through chi with the new boat
