  1. Trailer tires versus car tires

    Jet Boats
    Ok, guys the new boat is running great etc, but the trailer tires are less than desirable, sidewall cracks etc from age (original tires). Been looking into tires and some say you have to use a trailer tire, others say passenger tire is fine, but subtract 10% load for passenger tires etc. In...
  2. 460 versus 454 versus 455

    Jet Boats
    Been looking at a lot of boats, always stayed clear of the boats with Fords, because im a chevy guy. But in reality I have seen a lot of nice boats with 460 power plants. I want to know if there is really a big longevity difference between the 460 454 and 455, which I see in the boats most...

  4. Employer versus the muzzy

    Political Rhetoric
    Obama Judge: Hijab Ban Violates Muslim Civil Rights | Judicial Watch Sure is something to see how corrupt far and wide O and his clown posse reach. What a bunch of BS this case is. So now if you don't hire a Muslim for whatever reason, they will say its discrimination because of their dress...
  5. Lake Havasu versus Lake of the Ozarks?

    PB Open Water
    Havasu has been my home for more than 40 years off and on; but I must say there are some significant advantages to LOTO, especially for the larger boats. Much larger area of water, diversity in boats, multiple restaurants waterside with great docks and the ability to build a home and live right...
  6. BBC versus OB? The tradeoff

    PB Open Water
    After spending the weekend with several outboard boaters; I noticed significant differences between the average BBC I/O boaters and the weed whackers. 1. Amount of time they spend running them. We boated all day, for more than 6 hours at FULL speed, and burned under 40% of fuel compared...

  10. Water pressure versus head gaskets

    Jet Boats
    What is the maximum pressure that can be run through a BBC with a felpro head gasket? This is for a new engine, 10:1 compression, iron heads, 91 octane deal. Would like to run on the cool side to protect against detonation. Not planning on force feeding, but If I run 15-18 lbs of pressure...

  12. phpBB Versus vBulletin

    PB Open Water
    We are currently running phpBB, however some people have mentioned that they are more familiar with the vBulletin web software. I can change to vBulletin without any loss of threads, user names or anything bad like that. That said, what do you all think?
