40 years ago when we were buying our 1st house I mentioned to the realtor that I would be replacing the asphalt driveway with concrete because I worked for a masonry company at the time. The realtor told me it would increase my property taxes because the asphalt was not considered a permanent driveway surface and the concrete was. When I asked my boss about it he backed up what the realtor said. I've never seen anything in writing about it, and that is the only time I ever heard any reference to it.

What does the group size mean?

Brian, how did you get 40% off? I was just on there and i can only find 20%


Marine batteries come in 4 sizes. The larger the battery usually the greater the reserve capacity. The higher the group # the bigger the foot print.
Smallest to largest:
Group 24 usually just starting or combo starting/deep cycle
Group 27 most common size dealers install for trolling motor
Group 29 not available in all brands
Group 31 highest reserve and run time

Since I retired I've been delivering auto parts 3 mornings a week. My experience with Optima is almost exclusively with their car batteries. I only know of 1 blue top sold there in my 3 years at the store and it was returned 6 weeks later. The store replaced it for the customer, but had to eat the cost of the battery because Optima wouldn't honor the warranty. Our house batteries, Interstate and Optima are all manufactured by Johnson Controls. The house batteries and Interstates are always warrantied no questions asked if they fail a digital battery test. The house batteries and Interstates are also discounted one year after manufacture date, not so with Optima.

I would recommend liquid electric tape to seal the cord. I used GE silicone on a Humminbird transducer cord and the insulation on the cord softened and bubbled at the repair.

How do you like the new system now Chris?
5 months in and the system is only marginally better than it was at roll out.
Titles don't take triple the time to enter, it's more like 5 times, and when it's finished the clerk knows there is only a 75% chance the transaction went through properly and there is no way to check to see if it did.
For people who ordered tabs online and didn't receive their tabs the majority of the time the system will not allow the clerk to issue tabs without charging the customer for duplicates! My wife is so frustrated with the new system and the abuse from frustrated customers she is moving her retirement 6 months earlier than she had planned.

Make sure the bill of sale is from the registered owner. My wife works at a Registrars office and a lot of ATV's and boats have passed through several owners who never changed the registration on them.
The buyer then has to track down the owner of record and get a bill of sale from them. There is a privacy law that prevents the clerk from telling you who the legal owner is, they can only tell you it is not the person on the bill of sale.

I would go with a 9.9, the same brand as the big motor.

I sealed the cork on 1 rod to see how it worked. I don't remember the brand, but it wasn't U-40. When the weather was hot and I was sweating a lot the grips seamed sticky sometimes and slippery others. Decided it wasn't comfortable for me.

A friend had a 1650 Fish Hawk walk through that was one of the wettest boats I've ridden in. Now he has a 1750 Fish Hawk SC and it is a dry ride for an aluminum boat.
Maybe they've upgrade the hull design.

The system will probably be better than what they have now, we all know that software has to be constantly improved and upgraded. The "triple the information" may only be until the system has all the info it demands in it's data base.
My warning is for week one with the new system. It's most likely going to be a cluster bleep until the clerks and customers get familiar with the new system.
