Re: What would you do to become debt free?

More to it than that. Employment. Unless you're highly qualified in specific areas (teaching, social work, natural sciences, justice system, agriculture) there's not a lot of solid meaningful work, and what is is highly contested and the usual retail/sh*t kicker casual roles. Entertainment for the f...

Re: Fuel useage good or bad for a 2 stroke.

So this is a 5.6 mtr fibreglass boat ??? Gee, I dunno, an old 115 15 year old Johnson is going to be working hard to push that along !

Re: Fuel useage good or bad for a 2 stroke.

Take for a spin, have someone hanging over the rear checking the engine height when on the plane. Water should skim under th...

Far from it as a percentage. Voodoo said it all. To sell one Saltiga/Stella a month is basically a bonus. Higher mark up items are things that move high volumes of stock. It's the same in all retail space including supermarkets

Re: Top 5 pest fish

Eastern Water Dragons. Do they have a taste for cicada lures? And poppers Anything that floats. Even dropping off branches a metre or more above the water. They'd have to be that dumbest inquisitive animal in this state. Watching a small one get annihilated by a Bass with my bent minnow sitting mer...
