  2. Genny was closed yesterday. Water over N dock, South dock about 1/8" above water line.
  3. I don't know much about the decking, but one thing to remember is that 4 riggrs in the water will put a lot of torque/twist/pull on the board brackets. Make sure you have a good solid backer plate under the gunnels. (Much wider and longer that whatever you attach the board to above the gunnels.) As to a metal board, I think a channel would work much better than a solid piece. Also, stainless is liable to get hot on a bright day so I wouldn't want my mono line to touch it late July. Tom B.

  4. No, it's a regular 2x8. Check the end grain before you buy. Get as straight an end grain as you can. Pressure treated will warp bad as those timbers come from center of trees. (They cup, crack & shrink bad over time) . Tom B. (LongLine)
  5. Here's what I did many many years ago, a hinged board & it's still going strong. (note I never leave gear in my boat) I placed two permanent pieces of aluminum bolted to gunnels with backer plate underneath: I use two screws per end to hold the board: (wing nuts locked in place on 1/4x20's) A hinged board allows me to get the riggers out away from the boat. Even tho' I've got extendable booms, I can swivel the riggers parallel to the boat to change lures (forward) & never have to worry about bouncing the weights off the side of the boat and don't have to lift the rigger. Also just hinge it upward to land at dock. Works for me. I would not use aluminum for the board. It will bend over time. Tom B.
  6. Look at your engine when the boat turns. Did the engine turn? Some outboards will turn because of vibration and loose steering. In this case the engine just has to be held securely. Others turn because of the exhaust: The anode tab is usually installed at a little angle to the lower unit to help boat performance at higher speeds. At low speed, the exhaust pushes against it and the difference in water speed/pressure past it causes the boat to turn. In this case you have to "over-steer" a little in the opposite direction and securely hold it there. Anything you hang off to the side won't help if your being steered in one direction or the other
  7. A $2 bungee cord to the steering wheel works great. Tom B. (LongLine)
  8. Like Brian, I'd like to see more on the low end but that isn't likely with the shipping interests on the lakes. Water is naturally blue and generally darker as the lake gets deeper. It means there's very little particulate suspended or dissolved in the water. Cloudy green usually signals algae growth, low oxygen & lots of nutrients. Neon green signifies "whiting" where calcium carbonate forms i.e. changes in water temp, low carbon dioxide & increases in photosynthesis. Blue-green generally means algae blooms. Browns denote "crap" in the water.
