Keep in mind that if you buy a place at South Down you may be limited on overall size for a rack in their marina. You have more leeway if you can buy a slip.

For 12 people you pretty much need a...

We had a place in South Down, with a boat, for 10 years. Paugus Bay was great, at least then. Generally calmer and less crowded than the rest of the lake, a good sandbar, Naswa, Margate, etc. It's...

There are plenty of submarines on the lake already! When we had a place there we kept ours moored outside of the Southdown, it was a nice setup with a micro-nuke reactor for power, so we also never...

IMO, it is the exact opposite. There are endless crash reels on Youtube of bad exits from Cars-n-coffee events, just as one example. High performance Mustang crashes are practically a meme now.

I thought that was published as $0.22 for supply, but maybe I'm mistaken.


Some of the fees are not increasing, just the supply rate. It sounds like the net effect will be about a 50% increase...

It's 1A at the 12VDC output from the power supply, so 12 watts. And even that is more likely a peak value and not a constant value, realistically the average power consumption of it is likely under...

I think you've over-estimated the power draw of your router by a factor of 10. Unless the router is also serving as a hotplate there is no way it is using 120Watts.

Larger (30gal+) water heaters are usually 4000-5000W. Let's say 4500W on average. Your electric rate is based on Kilowatt hours, or using 1KW for 1 Hour. 4500 = 4.5Kw. Multiply your full electric...

Based on the logic in the floating toy island thread, unmarked and unregistered things in the lake have questionable ownership and so now I think the canoe defaults to being yours.

How is the ownership at question? Do you think there is no clear answer on who paid for the floating item? Does paying for something and then placing it in the lake somehow void ownership?

Depends on your engines. If you have older engines and need inline fuel flow devices, it's less than $500 for a PAIR, not each.

A basic Raymarine Axiom 7 is less than $600.
