Obamacare. Not working for us

Wed, 11/19/2014 - 09:33
Got my wife on Covered Ca./ Blue Shield after Kaiser canceled us. Costs way more than my cell phone. Nov. 7 she fell and broke both bones in her left leg and her big toe. Went to Blythe ER, splinted it, sent her home. Went to Primary doc on Monday and got referred to orthopedic surgeon in Palm Springs. Most of the ortho docs on Blue Shields network will not accept Cov. Ca. The ones that will do the surgery at Eisnenhower Med. Center. Guess what. Eisenhower does not accept Cov. Ca./ Blue Shield. As is turns out neither does Desert Hospital or JFK hospital. So, here we are on day 12. We don't have an ortho doc or a hospital that will take her. We are going to try Riverside General thurs. No guarantees and it's 200 miles away

BMC Fun Poker Run = Fun

Every now and then duty calls I’m talking about the mommy duties so this past weekend I was wrapped up in errands, laundry and appointments but the hubby made plans to get out to an event on the Harris chains. Recently we attended the Central Florida Boat Show and met some nice folks from BMC boats. BMC is a local boat retailer and they plan events for their customers to show them around different boating locations and to promote enjoyable boating.

This weekend BMC hosted a fun poker run and the hubby tagged along with a friend. The event started at the Lake Dora boat ramp and the course had stops at restaurants along the lakes. The first stop was way over at Hickory Point Park, then Boondocks, Hurricane’s, a floating stop at the Dora Canal and ended up at Lake Dora Marina. The event was well done and prizes were awarded the first place hand, the second best hand and the worst hand. There was a drawing for a 7-day cruise for two. Everybody walked away with a little something and a great time was had by all.

One of my hubby’s friends did have a little engine trouble and needed a tow back to ramp but that didn’t put a damper on the day they still enjoyed a nice lunch and a fun day on the lake.

It’s always nice to meet new boaters and enjoy a great time at a nice event. I’m sorry I missed it but it’s good for the hubby to spend some time out with friends doing what he loves. This weekend we’re expecting 80 degree temps and that’s calling my name the dishes and laundry will have to take a backseat. I hope your next adventure in boating finds you among friends old and new.


[Question] Intake opening size

Wed, 11/19/2014 - 06:15
Right now mines 13.875 from the front of the loader mounting pad to the deepest part of the shoe. I've been told that's way too big. I have more data on my set up if that will help.

What determines the optimum intake opening size?

What is the benefit of closing it down?

Thanks!

And for those on the Lower Colorado River

Who build your engines??

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 23:32
Just for grins, I was thinking, the other day......what the percentages are , of guys who build their own engines for their boat , guys who have hobbiest friend it, and guys that pay proffesional engine builders/shops , to bild their engine. Wondering still, having had said engine in boat, how many out there can remove the ignition install a new one,and time their engine. How many have yanked a valve cover and run a valve lash.

Enderle 110 alchol pump....new

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 20:13
Ok so this pump was new and I did mount it on a motor but never ran this pump.
I know how to work with a gas pump on alcohol and returned to what I knew rather than go with this pump.

So this pump has never been run. It is still packed with packing as it was from Enderle. We did drill some mounting
holes so we could turn the pump the direction we needed it on the motor.

A new pump is now like $550.
I'll sell this one for $450. and pay for the ride shipping in the states.

Mandella or not?

Tue, 11/18/2014 - 17:18
Hello, I have a flatbottom v-drive for sale on e-bay right now. The title I was given for it says it's a 1969 Mandella. When I posted it, Someone told me it's not a Mandella, he has 3 of them and has owned Mandellas for 30 years. I of course don't wish to be dishonest, so I'm asking for your help in identifying it. Many thanks in advance. Attached Thumbnails

These numbers came right off the ladder and from the second place down the ladder is WRONG. I can't believe 12 racers didn't question the ridiculous order of these numbers. How can under numbers be on top of over numbers. How come the over numbers don't go from lowest to the highest in order. The reason ALL of you should have questioned this is POINTS. You get points for your qualifying order. Too late now the race is in the books. It can't be corrected. I hope at the next race you guys and gals pay attention to your qualifying order



The first round saw Mike Beierle make an easy single pass into the second round by virtue of his number 1 qualifying effort and a odd number of boats.


Glendon Boehme from the great state of Texas dispatched Shawn Thomas in a double break out contest with a -14.05 on a 14.30 dial in and a much better reaction time.




The number three qualifier Don Blayney advanced to round two from a big ole red light from Harold Miller.




Keith Funk took out Keith Turley in a close first round encounter. Funk ran a 13.01 on a 12.85 dial in. Turley ran 15.16 on a 15.00 dial in. The difference was Funk's .183 reaction time to Turley's .287.




Scott Dolezal was the winner of a close first round race with Randy Melvin.





Two of the best from Texas battled it out in the first round. Ronald Jones nailed the best reaction time of the first round with a .040. This reaction time coupled with a 12.30 on a 12.21 dial in sent Andrew Decker home early. Decker ran a breakout -11.85 on a 12.30 dial in vain attempt to make up the difference of a .482 reaction time.



Sheridan Lindsay got the stripe first in his race with Kaylyn Mama Funk but broke out handing the win to Mama Funk.


The second round started with Mike Beierle beating Mama Funk The ladder handed the driver of Blackies Magic Glendon Boehme a single pass into the semi finals. Don Blayney tangled with Ronald Jones in a California vs Texas match up. Blayney from California took win. Scott Dolezal broke out running a 12.82 on a 12.84 dial in. with a .220 reaction time. Handing the win to his cousin Keith Funk. Funk ran a 13.21 on a 12.98 with a .297 reaction time.


The Ladder and some good racing provided the fans with an even number of boats in the semifinals.
Dave Blayney ousted the last boat from Texas by defeating Glendon Boehme. Blayney broke out with a -12.12 on a 12.22 dial in on a run initiated by a nice .060 reaction time. Boehme had a sickening -.004 red light and ran a 14.30 on a 14.06 dial in. Mike Beierle had the fast boat against Keith Funk in the semi's and crossed the finish line first but a red light at the start gave the win to Funk.


The Final was a great race. Funk left first and had the better reaction time .309 to Blayney's .495. Blayney had more horsepower and made a charge at the end but it was not enough. Funk crossed the finish line first while running a 13.09 on a 12.95 dial in. Blayney was second with a 12.19 on a 12.12 dial in.



Not only did Funk win the World Finals but he also clinched the Division One River Racer Tittle. Congratulations the Keith and Mama Funk and all the Funksters. Gawd you would not believe how many there are. I would not be able to list them all here.


Keith said at the awards ceremony and I quote “This one is for dad”

1973 Biesemeyer Flat Bottom V-Drive K Class

This is what I do for fun...I look at Craigslist ad's and then tell people they are wrong...tell me what's wrong with this ad...and then contact him through the reply button and tell him..

This one really gets to me...because what his claim is would really hurt somebody down the road when somebody tells him it's not what he bought...
