Was suggested by RDP'er Steve (Roaddogg 4040) to join this site for advice re: a Delta visit at the end of this week and in particular Phil (Dimarco21) but don't know how to find specific users yet. This will be our 3rd trip and have been Pretty much covered the area from Tower Park to Guistis to Pittsburg/Discovery Bay and every bar/restaurant en route. Am hoping you guys have some suggestions about any other things to do/see/navigate on the water. Will be in a 24' Lavey NuEra staying at Tower Park. Thanks

Mon, 07/21/2014 - 07:24
Does anyone have a nice hydro for sale out there that was taken care of? I have looked at boats from LA to Canada and I mean driven to look at them and its the same old thing cameras are very good at hiding stuff and most people don't know what nice means. I have been biting my tongue and not posting the truth about some of the boats that are for sale on this forum . I'm not sure if some people are just trying to make a buck or if they just have bad taste. well after driving thousands of miles just to look at piles of sh*t I can't take it, from now on the truth comes out I hope that's ok? If I'm out of line let me know Thanks. Oh yea still looking for a "nice"ski hydro

Rip & Move DVD Movies to iPad Mini for Playback

Mon, 07/21/2014 - 01:23
The iPad Mini is no longer just a rumor, it's official. The iPad Mini is an iPad in every way, shape, and slightly smaller form. The 1,024x768-pixel resolution matches that of the iPad 2, but on a 7.9-inch display, text is more readable at smaller fonts. This definitely isn't Retina Display, but it's better-than-iPad-2 display. Videos look excellent, and the IPS screen has great wide-viewing angles. Overall, the iPad Mini absolutely rocks for watching movies. This article mainly shows you the easiest way to get movies off of DVD discs and onto iPad Mini.

As with all Tablets, the iPad Mini can't directly play DVD movies. To watch DVD movies on iPad Mini, you need to convert DVD to iPad Mini compatible video formats first and then transfer the converted video files to your iPad Mini via iTunes. To get the work done, a professional DVD to iPad Mini Converter is necessary.

DVD Ripper Platinum can help you fast crack the DVD protection and rip DVD to iPad Mini supported H.264, MPEG-4 MP4 videos with high output video quality and fast ripping speed. Moreover, the DVD Converter can also help you convert DVD to all other popular video formats like AVI, MOV, MKV, WMV, FLV, MPG, etc. for playing and sharing on iPhone, iPad, Archos, Zen, Blackberry, YouTube, Facebook, etc. The equivalent Mac version is DVD ripper Mac, which can rip and convert DVD movies to iPad Mini on Mac OS X (Include Lion and Mountain Lion). Just download it now and follow the steps below to download and copy DVD movies to iPad Mini for playing in just a few clicks.

How to Rip DVD to iPad Mini supported video formats

Note: This guide uses DVD Ripper for Windows screenshots. The way to encode DVD movies to iPad Mini on Mac(Mountain Lion) is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system. You can also add ISO file, IFO file or DVD folder.

Download DVD Ripper Platinum:

1. Load DVD movies to the program
Insert the DVD disc to your DVD drive and then click "DVD disc" icon to add the DVD files. As you can see, added files can be previewed on the right viewing window. You can adjust the video volume and take snapshots of your favorite movie scenes.

2. Set output options for iPad Mini
Now choose the output format for playback on your iPad Mini. You can get optimized videos for iPad under iPad > iPad HD Video (*.mp4)". And choose the destination folder to save the converted videos.

3. Start DVD to iPad Mini conversion
After all the above settings, simply click "Convert" button to start converting DVD to iPad Mini videos. Just wait for the converting process to be done. After that, find the converted videos in your output folder and transfer them to your iTunes library and sync your iPad Mini. In this way, you can play DVD movies on iPad Mini and enjoy them on the go.

exhaust log disassembly

Sun, 07/20/2014 - 13:24
So I bought a v-drive with a cracked Glenwood exhaust log with over the transom pipes. I have a set of Nicson exhaust logs that I can use but they have the through transom elbows on them and I can't get them to seperate from the main exhaust log. They've been together probably since 1972 when they were new. I've taken off the nuts and whacked at it with mallets but it's not budging at all. I know they aren't but they feel as if they were JB welded. If I can't get them separated then I will have to get the other one repaired, but I would rather not at this time.

Thanks for any assistance!
