    Hey all, took my new to me Eliminator out for her maiden voyage yesterday and got a couple of kinks to work out, the one I'm most worried about is milky oil under the valve covers. Drained the oil and didn't see anything from the pan, but it was milky on the dipstick and real bad when I took...

    I recently bought a 1984 Howard 21 with a SBC and VP 280 (has trim). As soon as I come across another boat wake the nose of my boat heads towards the sky and then the subsequent waves pound the snot out of us. This is with the drive trimmed all the way down FYI. Everyone that sees the boat says...

    Seems as though the "Clinton Foundation", a charity group listing her, Bill, and the daughter as principles, has been receiving donations from foreign countries... That would be OK, except there seems to be a little "merging" of funds towards her 2016 campaign fund... A direct and obvious...

    Sorry for the dual post... I want to put this here as well as the V-Drive Forum to make sure I'm getting my ideas in front of folks.
