Looks like MD is the only state that bans recreational boating .
Thanks Prowlersfish. We don't call it the People's Republic of Maryland for nothing!

Re: Covid caution for Maryland boaters

If only. Let common sense social distancing and masks prevail. I live on my boat by myself these days. If I leave the slip by myself in my own boat and don't fish, I'm a criminal.

Re: Remember to change your impeller (s)

Good reminder. Also change engine anodes for closed cooling while you are at it -- another easy-to-forget item.

Re: Covid caution for Maryland boaters

My firearms are undocumented, so my democratic super majority state legislature loves them..... I've so far only moved to get water. Not on at my home base yet. When I do, I have my poles out. Waiting to tell the popo I'm out subsistence fishing. Burden of proof is on them. Big government over reach...

Re: Covid caution for Maryland boaters

Revised guidance now says subsistence hunting and fishing OK. Drag a line and you're good to go.

By the way, does anyone know the bolt sizes off hand? I’d like to source new hardware before I start taking things apart.
And IIRC, diameter was 3/8". Length about 4", but you can guesstimate that. Hull might be 1/2" there. They are generally thinner than people think.

Re: Prop strut backing plates

the wooden ones have lasted this long; why change now? I threw that out there because I acknowledge that it might be OK for some folks, but that's just not how I roll though. I own my OCD. The nicest thing ever said about me I wasn't supposed to hear. Was replacing the cable life line that was on t...

Re: Prop strut backing plates

I used 0.5 in fiberglass sheet from the Man's Toy Store -- mcmaster.com. Took it to a granite countertop place n had them water jet cut to size. No risk to my health. Expensive, but didnt ruin any saw blades. Perfect edges too. Also had them do seacock backing plates and my underwater exhaust backin...
