  1. here ya go i hope you can read this if not i can send to you email larger pics...john
  2. i suggest a 5' fiberglass, the typical shakespeare 5' fiberglass has 5dB thats the amount of multiplication to the power output of the radio (eg. 5watt radio output and 5dB antenna equals 25watts total output) and as well the radio and antenna combo to hear the incoming signal. the stainless 3' whip has the dB as the five footer but the tip of the antenna is 2foot higher, the 3foot whip is little smaller and takes up less room, however VHF radio's only work in line of sight, and here is the problem, on your boat. if the mounting location is three feet above the water, and you got a 3foot whip and are in say 6 foot waves (and you in the trough) the radio wont get out far at all, i know you most likely wont go out in seas that big, but what if it sneaks up on you and then get into trouble?? oh and the wife ever goes out and the cell dont work and the radio saves you both, then she will be saying " all i heard was BLAH BLAH BLAH, something about I told you so...Etc...Etc..."
  3. whoa boy....generally speaking yes, but sometimes you want shorter leads that will produce more snap...supposibily for more aggressivly feeding fish, and when fish are more netrual longer leads will put a little less in action on the fly. this is one area where nothing is written in stone, not a right or wrong answer, the fish will bite what they like and want. let them dictate the leader lenght!!!

  7. with thousands of hours of flight time (sea and air sickness are the same) i can say this. 1st if you were able to find a cure you would easily make millions and millions. the whole trouble in deep within the inner ear, and with going into a long winded medicial discourse, it effects everyone differently, even the same person, sometimes they puke and othertimes they dont, take the over counter sea sickness meds, look at the horizon,get into some cool fresh air, and unlike most i say get into the place on the boat with the least amount of motion, the cabin is a good place HOWEVER make sure they keep their head up and in plenty of fresh cool moving air....and as always keep the bucket close!!!

  16. FBI Sued for Illegal Discharge of Lead Bullets Into Lake Michigan FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Chicago - January 14, 2008 Local advocacy group Blue Eco Legal Council today filed a lawsuit charging the FBI with disposing of lead bullets into Lake Michigan near an intake pipe which provides drinking water for 18,950 Illinois citizens. "We've been investigating the FBI's illegal discharge of lead into the lake for months," said Steven B. Pollack, Executive Director of the Blue Eco Legal Council, a local advocacy group, "and we were appalled and frightened to learn that this discharge is taking place in such close proximity to a public water intake pipe. This continued action by the FBI is putting our children at risk of permanent brain damage and developmental disabilities. The damaging effect of lead on children is well documented." According to documents received through Freedom of Information Act requests, this FBI firearms training range is intentionally designed to use over 2,900 acres of Lake Michigan as an impact area for discarded lead bullets. The City of North Chicago’s drinking water intake pipe is inside these 2,900 acres and its last water quality report indicated lead was detected in the public water supply. Last November, the Blue Eco Legal Council successfully stopped the Coast Guard from conducting its training exercises with lead bullets on the Great Lakes. "By filing this lawsuit, we hope to set an important precedent, and to force Federal officials to stop poisoning our children," said Pollack, "this is simply another case of the Federal Government believing they're above the law. Especially troubling is that the Department of Justice is the agency charged with enforcing the same laws it is now breaking.†For further information, please contact: Steven B. Pollack, Attorney Executive Director, Blue Eco Legal Council 3390 Commercial Ave. Northbrook, IL 60062 847-436-9566 [email protected] http://www.ecoesq.com/FBI_CoastGuard_Complaint.html ***************** I believe the population figure of 18, 950 is an obvious mistake. I myself use steel "drop weights" (that term will never die, I think)and won't sweat it if I ever lose one to the bottom. Frank
