Re: Let's keep politics off the forum

Meh, its no secret the business model of web-forums, but we all willingly agreed to participate within the parameters. As far as I'm concerned I'm owed nothing as a result.

Re: Let's keep politics off the forum

Re: Going down the Yukon?

A few people have those long shaft mud type motors, which I'm sure will help when in the mud flats but most use regular old outboards. And most small boats are aluminum from what I've seen. We have...

Re: go to first unread post & notifs for additional posts in threads you've posted in
