    As mentioned in a previous post:

    If your motor "Pee Hole" is plugged, Steelguy recommends using a tooth pick to clear the debris.
    Yankee Doodler says to use a piece of brazing wire

    My favorite was from "D" who said to use a piece of weed eater wire.

    A friend of mine in Florida made "pee hole" plugs for his outboards.....seems they were made of plastic and as soon as he was done, he capped up the hoes to keep mud daubbers etc. out. If anyone is interested I'll ask him for details and pics.

    That's funny, in construction, when we ran across door hinges with stripped out screws, we used to pound a golf tee in, cut off the head, then put a screw back in. Worked like a champ.

    That should work well sir..my dad was a carpenter, could build anything..he told me to use steel wool for a stripped out screw hole, and it also works well..good thread

    Redneck tip of the day:
    We use bread wrapper twist ties to clean hard to reach holes and places in firearms. The wire is lite and easy to bend yet protected with the vinyl outer wrap. Works exceptionally well to clean the plug hole where your 209 primer shoots the fire down through the breach of an In-line muzzle loader.

    Torch files used to clean the ends of cutting torches also work really well to clean fouled breach plugs!

    Redneck treestand safety:

    Being as it is getting to be that time of year, I figured this one might help out.

    Many of the trees we use on my property are so big that we cannot get our arms around them to secure wratchet straps and safety lines. It is hard to bear hug the tree and then try to throw one end of the line around the tree and grab it. Over the years, two things have worked well for me.

    1. I utilize a piece of 12/2 w ground electrical wire (yellow). It will hold up really well and you can easily keep it's shape while sliding it around the backside of the tree. You can create a quick loop with it, attach your safety rope or strap and bring it back around the tree to your other hand.

    2. I carry and old 8 foot folding ruler. I believe it folds every 8 inches. I attach a screw in eye hook to one end. While up in the tree, I am able to extend out enough of the ruler and fold it around the tree, affix my rope to the screw in eye, and then pull it back to my other hand.

    The ruler is my favorite and stays in my pack when I setup tree stands.

    Have only had the pontoon a couple weeks, but already getting some lessons. If you have one and use or like to use a drift sock? Put a dog snap under your boat and another one on your drift sock and hook them together. Your drift sock is under the pontoon out of the way of any fish you bring in. You can attach a piece of rope so the sock will be down in the water. Attach your "dump line" to a corner cleat so you can pull the sock in when your ready to go.
