so lets hear the home remedies...Elvis (yellow lab) got a surprise this morning by one of those fine black and white critters that smell really nice...In the dark at 5am we did the tomato paste, followed by dawn dish soap, then after my nose recovered a little bit I went back with vinegar and backing soda, followed again by some dawn dish soap. Going to call the vet to have him checked just in case, didn't see any bites scratches but figure better safe than sorry. Also figure they will have some "skunk off" or similar at the office for me. I might end up having to use some on myself, I can't tell if I smell or not because the stink is still terrible in my nose. Thanks for your ideas.

Best thing you can use is a remedy easily found online.

I believe you mix 1/4 cup baking soda with 1 teaspoon of dawn dish soap, and one small bottle of hydrogen peroxide. I am about 99% sure on that ratio. I had one dog run into a skunk about three weeks ago.

You lather this on a dog (I get mine damp first) for at least five minutes...10 are probably better. Then rinse.

You don't really want to get this mix in their eyes. A few drops of olive oil in each eye will help keep it from stinging them. I have found that most of the stink is on the head/chest/neck area, so be sure to clean the head well.

Repeat as necessary...(It usually takes me two doses on a 40lb dog)

You can use the same stuff to "de-skunk" a collar too.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
