    Tonight at the Vise: Share Your Creations

    Where do you get those popper bodies?
  2. Wrench, does that also apply to the 1983 115 HP Merc motors? That's what I've got on my Charger Bass Boat and I have always been a bit concerned about getting parts if I need them. If I ever hit a log and needed a new lower unit what would be the odds of getting one from a salvage yard?

    FVP Marine Batteries

    Thanks Wrench. I was wondering if that may have been the case.
  4. I'm in the market for a couple of new trolling motor batteries for my bass boat. I went to Menards in Columbia to see if they still sold Exide batteries which I had been using and had good luck with. I noticed they no longer sold Exide brand and now sell FVP brand. I've never heard of this brand. Anyone ever heard of or used them? If so, how were they?

    Upgraded boat

    What was Elvis doing in your boat?
  6. Twenty years ago a brick skidder could make $60,000 per year loading brick off the kiln cars onto shipping pallets at A.P. Green. Back breaking work but great pay.
  7. On Monday at 9:00 PM on the Outdoor Channel there is going to be a one hour preview showing of the museum. Morris is showing it to George W Bush, Jimmy Carter and some other dignitaries. Should be an interesting program.

    Where to buy Interstate batteries

    Plus one on the Exides from Menard's. I had a starter one on my bass boat that lasted six years. It was still fully charged but I went ahead and replaced it as I was leery that it would last much longer. Menard's runs 11% off sales pretty often also. I did get a bad one from them once (wouldn't hold a charge after six months) but they replaced it no questions asked.

    Here I go again

    Glenn, I haven't forgotten about a trip to Bennett we talked about earlier but I've been a bit inactive lately due to lower back problems. Maybe we can catch a warm day in the upcoming C&R season. We are headed to Florida in mid November but maybe we can catch a day in Dec or Jan. Dave
  10. Well I called about the boat and found that it belonged to the woman's deceased husband. I asked if it was a Serenity boat and she said no, that her husband had the boat painted red and had a professional apply the Serenity decal as he was a recovering alcoholic. Go figure. Said she wanted $1200 for it. She thought the "professional" paint job and decal added to the value. Told her I'm still drinking so would pass on it. Well, I didn't really tell her that but felt like it.
  11. Anybody ever heard of this brand aluminum jon boat? I can't find anything on the web about them but recently came across a used 12 foot one for sale. It was a red boat on a decent trailer and looked to be in good shape. Kind of leery as I have never heard of the brand. I noticed the drain plug screwed into the bottom of the boat rather than the transom which seemed kind of odd. Thanks

    I have another story on him Wrench. One time when I was at Bennett I stoped in and talked to Bob Gaston for awhile. When Bob learned that I had worked at A.P. Green he asked me if I had known Kramer. I said I had heard the name but didn't really know him. Bob asked me what he did there and I told him he worked down in the plant somewhere. Bob said that Kramer had told everybody down there that he was Green's main clay finder as he could go out to a farm and sort of "smell" where the clay deposits were. I guess we didn't really need all those geologists we had on the payroll after all.

    Wrench, Was Frank Kramer the same guy as Harold Kramer? I've heard a lot of stories about Harold Kramer at Bennett. I went into Larry's one time and asked for some Golden Nugget Glo Bug yarn and he said you must know Harold Kramer and his famous "Horse Choker Fly". When he retired from A.P. Green he moved to Bennett and apparently developed quite a reputation for his fishing prowess.
