    Hashtagging, May 21, 2016
  1. Julian

    I fixed a few hashtags today where people used a # instead of an @, so some of you might get an old notice from an old post where you are @'ed...I put a note in the post "<edited by admin to fix tag from # to @>" so you'd know.

    For those not familiar with this feature, we haven't touted it much, but it is pretty cool. See the gropro example about...just click on the hashtagged word and it will show you EVERY post where that hashtag was used. I use it for YDS posts as they are always hard to find. Probably would be a good idea to set some base words up....like:

    #Coolmod - for cool modifications
    #Cleaning - for...good cleaning tips! LOL
    #gopro - for great videos
    #YDS - for anything to do with YDS (Yamaha diagnostic System)
    #HOT - use your imagination! (although this might get swamped with @Geoff Cooper threads! LOL....there are other hotties out there!)
    #Bimini2016 - Posts about that trip
    #Shelbyville2016 - Posts about that gathering

    You get the idea!
  2. A Great Product to Clean the Boat Hull, Apr 27, 2014

    Interesting....its main ingredients are oxalic and hydrochloric acids. Oxalic is what gets rid of the rust stains, the hydrochloric is what is cleaning the boat. Which means it has the same primary ingredient as any of the products that list muriatic acid (aka hydrochloric acid). I've heard, but not looked for, that Home Depot sells muriatic acid in "bulk" rather cheaply....so you might want to check that out too.
