Stupid Human Boating Tricks

Over the years I’ve lost to the sea, everything from cell phones to coffee pots.

Usually it's just a hat, it sucks when you lose a 10 HP kicker motor . . . I'm just saying

On the find side I come along lots of balls and a fender or two throughout the season. I did find 20 bucks once in a floating pack of cigarettes along with two used ticket stubs to a Jimmy Buffett concert. The smokes were wet.

Let's hear your story; it can't get any worse than a 10 HP Kicker . . . Can it?

Red Sky at Night with JB Cornwell | The Crappie Tree

Somebody had been spying on me. I was about halfway back to the camp (about a mile) when four boats passed me bound for the tree. They didn’t have much time, but those still at the camp came down to the shore and asked about my stringer, then marveled at the big crappies. I didn’t tell them that I had actually caught about 50 throw-backs in order to assemble my stringer.

Product Spotlight | New Outboard Power for 2012
And a Sneak-Peek at the Mercury 150 Four-Stroke

The first week of October 2011 saw the release of a new 250 horsepower four-stroke outboard from Honda Marine. The new Honda engine expands their offering to include models from 2hp to the new 250.

Boat Spotlight | 31-foot Pursuit ST310

If you’re cruising along at around 50 mph on the Gulf of Mexico in a Pursuit ST310 you’ll find that 31’ is a whole lot longer than one may have imagined. I was fortunate to have run the ST310 with twin Yamaha 300’s pushing us across the waves. Yes, when you’re out on the ocean, can’t see land and 3’ waves are considered a “light chop” you start to think that 31’ isn’t real big. But this 31 is bigger than it looks.
