After this winter, it took 3 charge cycles to start the fury. I did not want to chance it so I looked at the EXT36c. Could not find it shipped until friday so I looked elsewhere and found the better EXT680c in stock at a local Aircraft spruce aviation supply 30 min from me. Sucks that it was $400 after tax though.

Got home, whipped up some DIY pure copper terminal connectors from scrap bars that I had laying around and voila! She is good to go now! Total time invested is 2 hours from the first search to the installed battery first start.

Not bad!

Looks great, did they not include the terminal extenders for the battery? Mine came with them.

Glad I live in Florida.
I could only wish that I lived in florida. I absolutely hate winter and have hated living here for all 43 years of my life. I have deployed 6 times to the middle east and honestly, I prefer blazing hot over winter any day. I fucking hate being cold.

Your ext36c comes with them. My ext680c does not.

Winter of '71/72 I was in GLAKES, IL...with wind-chill it hit 56° below 0°...WTF!? I had thought I knew what cold was having lived in Penna., & Mass., but THAT was a whole other cold! I worked in 1200psi steam enginerooms of two of the ships I was stationed. JAN80 my last ship went into Bath Iron Works (Maine) shipyard for overhaul after we went on a S.America/W.Africa cruise. I got out in May and went back to Mass. until the first snow. Saw an ad in the newspaper for driving some old folks' Lincoln down to Ft. Lauderdale. Screw this shit. I packed my seabag and a sleeping bag in the trunk. I'm outta here! I'd rather sweat than freeze. Currently in Gainesville. Go Gators!

My military life follows similar to yours except I was in Great Mistakes '75/77 and I also was from the North (New York) and thought I could tolerate the cold there! NOT!! Whole NEW ballgame, so I can relate to the intense cold coming from the North (Canada). On my first ship, I served time (6 months) in the 1200 psi steam plants and engine rooms ( 2 each) as a newbie. BUT I did manage get greased in ALL 4 spaces for each initiation. NEVER AGAIN MIND YOU!! Currently in Jacksonville. Go Gators!

"Shorts and flip-flops" is my "Uniform of the Day" 330/365...jeans and jacket 35/365. I keep my bike at my oldest son's place (he's my riding partner/coach). Riding attire (boots, socks, jeans, leather) kept in the car so I'm ready to ride when his schedule allows.

Snowed and cold the entire time there.
