  1. never heard of a 16 speed freedom line ,thought they were all 12's.Still being built all over the world but a old (law)suit keeps them from the U.S.
  2. pully damn auto correct
  3. the bully/block sees 100 the winch sees 50 and the dead end sees 50, if you are using twice as much line........ (we are ignoring friction). you know if you add enough tackle/ purchase you can end up with no advantage ,it all is lost to friction in the rope and pull sheaves.
  4. slow down and don't overdrive them ? sorry๐Ÿ˜‡
  5. inflatables are terrible boats ,wind blown and tiring to paddle .however In a cold water lake they are rolls royce comfortable.The high pressure ones are expensive ,like yacht tender dollars (which are a order of magnitude more) then camping dollars.
  6. heck you can make a screen door float ,just bring a can of that wal-mart miracle sealer and some chicken wire. reminds me of a story out of new zealand years ago ,a dude brought a bag or two of fero cement to the beach, piled the sand into a boat shape -plastered it and he had a boat next day,end of vacation left it as a new 'reef'.
  7. HA great minds and all that. my pac a yak is my fav for now, the 2 man when the admiral needs to come along.
  8. I have a high pressure inflatable (2 man) ,a folboat and a 5 segment kayak. I looked at vertical storage and it will not give you a decent length of boat ,certainly not a 2 person. There are many joined, collapsable ,and some assembly required boats out there(port-a-boat). I get wanting to use what is already in your possession but a canoe is the least likely to work with a tall trailer and tall truck. Believe it or not a port a boat will go under the trailer, about 4" thick.
  9. yup Even if I put it in neutral myself ,I can hear it double checking .
  10. We always take the commercial lane ,had a officer call the union on us for being in the car lane. Oh and mine goes back into gear at any speed (freedomline) I know because more then once I hit the neutral button instead of manual at hwy speeds .
  11. Always too soon Always a shock Good bye friend
  12. tears in my eyes funny

    Balancing tires

    my centramatics 'wobble' every spring after a long idle period ,takes 20-30 kms before things smooth out. Like a out of round tire ,maybe give em some time.

    I remember a picture of a locomotive converted to natural gas ,the fuel had to be stored in tank cars (full size) it had 3or 4 tank cars of compressed natural gas behind the locos, not what I would want behind me in a wreck. compare that to the saddle tanks of diesel ,slug under the body of the power unit, natural gas must be a order of magnitude less dense. again a matter of energy density, our forbears were not stupid when they picked gas/diesel.

    so just a thought experiment ,imagine a group 31 (battery)size container of fuel, how far will it get you down the road? now how far will a lithium battery that size get you? called energy density ,without google just from my defective memory the energy density of electron storage is not even within 2% of liquid fuel ,so they can pass all the laws they want, the laws of physics trump them. notice how far down the road these "feel good"laws are.They know they will not have to answer for the nonsense
  16. all the extra plastic on mine got knocked off the first year, snow banks did the rest
  17. thunder bay? not much but wheat after that until you reach the rockies.
  18. Darryl&Rita we usually meet at Billr's campground in SS Marie (ontario) on our way to points further north.
  19. Nigel and I will have to have a Canadian "rally" we'll hoist a real beer for you guys
  20. Cant this year ,border closed ,2 week quarantine ,vaccine not until maybe june ,too many road blocks.

    Al -๐Ÿ˜‡ I am pretty sure all ford small engines have at least one turbo

    Bronco Sport

    sold out for the year apparently ,so good guess.
  24. try the canadian border web sites I doubt you can drive over ,snowbirds determined to get south have to ship their RV across commercialy and then fly over and meet the unit stateside. seriously doubt we can travel by road until later this year, and the 2 week quarantine will be in effect even longer possibly.
