    Hobie Cat Bravo Catamaran

    After kayaking, skimboarding and paddleboarding pursuits I was thinking about the wind and the toys available. Everyone knows about the Hobie Cat Catamaran but what about a smaller version for 2? Check out the 12′ Hobie Cat Bravo weighing in at 195 pounds. Rugged, fun and fast!

  • Maserati MC Sport Line

    Maserati MC Sport Line

    Welcome to the MC Sport Line inspired by the Maserati racing heritage. Apparently these options are for customers who wish to express their passion & wallet for sports cars with a dynamic look that is different than the standard line. The carbon fiber styling inside and out is unique and stands out. I feel the standard Maserati line is already a racing inspired sports car, so why not take it up a notch?

    As 2010 arrived today I wanted to set 7 personal goals for gadgets. Sure, most people want to lose weight, work out more, etc. but I choose to make a list of cool gadgets to have in 2010. Let’s get going, it’s the 1st! 1. Kodak Zi8 – Portable video camera or other? This flip cam competitor made my list for 2 reasons; first is 1080p HD resolution (i know it’s not the same) and the second is a microphone […]

    Who doesn’t like a Mini? As a big fan of the entire Mini lineup I recently came across the 201 hp Mini E 100% Electric Car in field testing.

  • Mosquito Combat – Black Flag Propane Fogger

    Mosquito Combat – Black Flag Propane Fogger

    Mosquito’s are a serious issue in Florida and sometimes you need to purchase products to slow down mosquito’s before all your blood is drawn from your body! The Black Flag Propane Fogger is a product that I recently purchased from Lowes and is an interesting device (see my video review). At $69, the propane fogger works like a gas grill in addition to fogging Insecticide. Kills this! Once you turn it on you “pump” the trigger to release the chemical […]

    As a pool owner, cleaning the pool is not fun. The new Polaris 3900S Automated Pool cleaner has a sleek design like a Porsche and Hummer Like aggressive power to all 3 wheels for achieving a clean pool. Let me preface, I had the Polaris 360 (most advanced pressure side cleaner w/o booster) and worked great until recently I retired it. Although I have not decided on a automatic pool cleaner replacement I noticed the new Polaris 360 which is the […]

  • Portable Kitchen that fits in a Bag

    Portable Kitchen that fits in a Bag

    Recently, I went camping and was thinking about a folding kitchen table setup to prepare food on. I came across the REI Camp Kitchen and seems to be an excellent camping or tailgating gadget. The aluminum and steel design has space on the left and right for food preparation (or mixing drinks) and a wind covered center portion for the portable grill. On my last camping trip the wind was so strong it was difficult to shield the stove to […]
