Rexmar wtf

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 18:30
So back a couple of weeks ago I ordered some parts from Rex. Since I was going to be out of the country for a week, I requested the order be shipped on the 15th. I have received the parts coming directly from Rex, however a week and a half later I am still without the A22 shaft that I was told would ship direct from the machinist. Numerous calls to Rex go unanswered, anyone know who they use for A22 propshafts? This sucks!

Gone: The jobs Obama doesn't want

(File Photo)

For six years, under heavy pressure from environmental groups, President Obama and countless Democrats have blocked passage of the Keystone project -- a Canadian energy pipeline that would have shipped oil from Alberta to the U.S., creating thousands of jobs.A U.S. State Department review found that the pipeline would create upward of 42,000 jobs during the construction period alone. Economists, meanwhile, have found that the pipeline would create 20,000 manufacturing and construction jobs and an additional 118,000 spinoff jobs, according to media reports.
The president has refused to greenlight the project despite the obvious need for U.S. manufacturing jobs. Instead, Obama and fellow Democrats have bowed to environmental groups and strangled the energy project in red tape.
Canada has had enough. They have decided to circumvent Obama and his posse of misguided environmentalists and go East. A Canadian energy company, Energy East, is planning to build its own major oil pipeline, bypassing the United States completely and shipping its crude directly overseas. End result? Canada wins. The U.S. loses tens of thousands of jobs. The environment isn't benefited whatsoever.
This is what happens when liberals implement job-killing regulation without looking at the big picture or examining the unintended consequences.
"The new pipeline will cost $10.7 billion and could be up and running by 2018. Its 2,858-mile path, taking advantage of a vast length of existing and underused natural gas pipeline, would wend through six provinces and four time zones. It would be Keystone on steroids, more than twice as long and carrying a third more crude," reports Bloomberg.
This is not how to protect Mother Earth or how to do business with our biggest ally. The environment doesn't benefit by blocking the Keystone XL by having a much larger pipeline being built in its place. Thousands of needed U.S. jobs are lost and environmentalists have egg on their face. Or should we say Democrats?
Bottom line: With $18 trillion in national debt and millions of Americans unemployed, the U.S. government should be implementing policy that grows our economy and creates needed jobs. Cowering to special interest groups is not the way to achieve those objectives.

Cav plate

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:42
Being new to flat bottom boats, I have a question about the boat I just bought (1975 Kindsvater 19 foot). The cav plate on mine has "no" split in the middle of the plate, it's a solid plate clear across. The boat builder (Harold) was stunned to hear there wasn't a split and told me to get a sawzall and cut it a blades width right down the center to just before the transom. I've looked at all the flat bottom pics on this site that show cav plates and from what I can see, all of them have the split. The gentleman I bought it from says that's how he got it and never questioned it. My question, why is this plate not spit? I'm thinking it should be split especially since the builder says to, but before I start cutting it, I thought maybe I could get some input from you guys as to any reason why it would be a solid plate. By the way, it has the dual pedal system. Thanks!
