I removed this post from a thread as I didnt want to clutter it up with my rant...........
Look, You may of installed a T stat system and ran it for 3 seasons and have great success, But I highly doubt you have done any testing so to speak off any,other than running it. All I can say is thats great for you and your needs but please refrain from preaching to the chior.
You machinist told you this, or I heard it from duane,dave @ aggressor, mike from Rex,Or any other real "expert". Please let the experts give their opinions on topics and findings that have been backed up with years of expeirence and knowlage and real testing data to back up their reasonings and findings. It's great to throw in your 2 cents every now and then, but for you to throw advise around as your the know it all is just wrong.You constantly go back and edit your posts to back track on boguss advise you spilled out so you don't look like an idiot and don't get hammered on, or delete it entirly becuase you were called out and you were proved to have the wrong advise or theory. We all have our opinions on what works for us and why we do things a certian way, but you are taking this way overboard.
It seems as if you have it all figured out and thats great, but geez guy, relax on the throwing out of brain picked knowlage that you have aquired from countless phone calls to these professionals and endless hours of reading your "how to books"! It gets old.
I agree with alot of what you say from time to time, but these how to posts from the newbs that you go on and on about a topic as "this is law" or "
this how it needs to be done" is old. Again, Its' great that your applying your knowlage and trying to help people, but there are many more people on these forums that have many years in the "buisiness" that won't post up anymore or don't want to give there opions because of guys like you. I get countless PM's regaurding you and how I attack you, but I was warned not to do it anymore or I would get banned.
It's my "opinion" that you my freind should sack up and let the pros speak for themselves. I am not a know it all or nor do I claim i am. I have been involved with this sport from the time I was born and live the boaters life as you do.
I have helped countless people on these forums, be it fiberglass repair,engine tuning, sold parts,or just plain old moral support and have met a ton of good people that i am proud to call my freinds.But you are making more enemies than you know.
So in closing, I guess what the short and sweet question I pose to you is......
CAN YOU PLEASE CHILL????
Im off my soapbox
