Two questions regarding a new boat


Shorelunch

Question

Hello. I bought my first new 18' aluminum boat w/a 140 four-stroke over the weekend and have a few questions:

1. When/how do you register a boat in MN? I pick it up next week.

2. Has anyone ordered precut boat letters (for under $50) that they like?

3. What does a fuel/water seperator do? Is it necessary for this boat?

Thank you!

I can help you with your first two questions. The dealer will do the paperwork and you'll get a temporary tag like you do with a vehicle and about a week later the permanent registration with numbers will come. Yesterday I picked up my reg letters/numbers at a Fastsigns, about 28 bucks for one color 35 or so for two colors and they are really easy to put on. Each side of the boat comes in one piece so you don't have to put individual numbers on, took me five minutes tops and I'm not artistic.

License your boat at the same place you get your vehicle plates/stickers although I'd think that your dealer would have a temp registration. There's a place called Fastsigns (320-252-1667) in St. Cloud that will do one-color set for $24.99 with one-day turnaround. It's a pretty competitive market. I wouldn't be without the fuel/water seperator. It helps protect against condensation from the fuel tank reaching your motor. You see them on the pumps where you get gas, too.

shorelunch, I just bought a new boat from a dealer too. The dealer will take care of the registration with the state, you don't have to go into the dmv with a new boat from the dealer, it will come in the mail along with your trailer reg. permanent stamp. Sounds like I need a fuel/water separator though, I never had a problem the last five years without one but it makes sense.

Thanks for the replies. Do Suzy/Johny 140 4S come with a fuel/water seperator or do they need to be added?

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
