    On a guess, I’ll go with a compass mount for your boat?

    Perhaps I watch too much Star Trek.

    Welp the router table was back ordered for over a month... Shame,I REALLY wanted that table. Woodpecker is kind of like the Snap-On tools of wood working tools for things like that in my opinion.

    I second that. I dropped a small fortune buying what I could. Can’t wait to have some of those this fall.

    I've had these for over a year now and I've REALLY tried to like them but....they suck, sorry. They are hard to open and close when you are riding and I have one that dribbles no me every time a take a sip. I've taken them apart to try and fix. Just done with them. Thank gawd I have a few other good CamelBaks :D

    Sorry to hear that you don't like those water bottles. I have one with the new style valve and one with the old style valve. Both are working just fine, although the new style valve is so much easier to clean. I also doesn't appear to attract as much gunk and dirt as the old style valve does.

    Are yours easy to turn and open? Almost every time I turn them it starts to open the whole lid on both of mine.
    Yea, that whole easier to clean is what sold me but gawd....what a pain in the ass getting those rings on and off. It's much easier to me to pull the other ones apart and throw them in the dishwasher.

    The one new style that I have is still easy to turn and doesn't dribble when I use it. I got mine not too long after you posted getting yours because I didn't like the way you have to clean the old style valves. The old style seems to get dirtier much faster and harder to clean.

    Bought a weather tent for one of my gen sets. This is a bonus gen. The previous owner bought this and never used it. Had 0.0 hours on it and they left it. I did have to have the carb ultrasonically cleaned as they left old nasty ethanol fuel in it. I use STA-BIL 360 Marine Ethanol Treatment and Fuel Stabilizer in every gas powered machine I own.

    Very cool. Feel free to bring it around my place to show it off the next time the power goes out here.
