Re: Who to not to shop from

Fair is fair. I'll give them credit, when credit is due. One of the bosses at Basic Power or Ebasic Power called a couple of days ago and apologized, said that they would refund some of the handling charges. They just refunded $42 to my credit card. That's what they could have done in the first plac...

Re: Who to not to shop from

I hope they work. My complaint is paying $81 for them to put them in a box for the Post Office to ship them. Doing a little research and have found that they are famous for sending the wrong or defective parts and will not send the correct ones unless you pay for them twice. One website showed over ...

1Boatngmom, and anybody else, how to put in an Avatar (little picture). Hard part for me was to figure out how to start a new topic. For the avatar, or most any picture you want to post on the site, it will be too big, so you have to shrink it first. So open another tab and go to shrinkpictures.com....

Re: Retrofitting bow anchor platform

The ammo box seems like a good idea. For the water in the box, I would just drill a drainage hole down low.

Re: dip stick for 318

Some marine engines have a different oil pan but most are the same. Take the old dip stick to a wrecking yard and compare.
