  1. Is it possible to use the Torpedeo cable with the Depth Raider antenna or do I need a specific antenna? Thanks, Rick
  2. The Vinyl Doctor in Webster used to do it. I think he's still in business. I believe he's mobile too. Phone# 323-1260
  3. Has anyone had any experience with Rust Oleum bottom paint? Thought I would try to save a few bucks if possible and if the product was ok.
  4. I replaced the bearings. Wheel cylinder and star adjuster that were both rusted and not working. It seems to be working while its up on the Jack. True test will be when I get it on the road. Thanks for the suggestions. Rick
  5. Thanks guys, I did pull the hub and it looks like the bearings have quite a bit of play in them. Shoes look fine and all springs are in place. A couple of years ago I did have an issue with a master cylinder so I may have over heated the hub and/or spindle. Is there an easy check for this? I would like to check that out before I replace the bearings.
  6. I have a 2001 Load Rite, double axle trailer with surge brakes (Drum)on one axle. One wheel keeps locking up going forward. I opened the bleeder screw thinking it might be a bad master cylinder but that doesn't free it. If i rotate it backwards by hand it works fine but when i switch to forward again it will go a couple of turns and lock up again. Bad actuator? I haven't had much experience with surge breaks so I thought I would look for a little info before I take off the drum so I might have an idea what to look for. Thanks, Rick
  7. Thanks, I'll give them a try.
  8. Anyone know where I can get teak local in the Rochester area. I'm looking for something about 1"X5"x32"
  9. I have a 1987 5.7, 260 hp Mercruiser engine with 4600 hours. I have been running 30 wt oil in it since it was new. I was wondering if there would be any benefit to running synthetic oil in it. I was told awhile back that there isn't but not sure what the reason was.
  10. Another tough day for us. Took a 24lb King 115 down over 155 On a dodger/ Meat. Lost another small fish behind the boat 85 over 145 on a Stinger NASCAR. Didn't get to see it so not sure what it was. Had 3 other releases in the same area without a hook up. I know it's derby time but interested if anyone is having any better luck.
  11. looking at a 1989 24 Thompson hard top. It has a 5.0 mercruiser/alpha outdrive. I'm wondering what this boat weighs and if the 5.0 would be under powered. Any history of stringer or transom rot issues. I've e-mailed the seller but haven't received a reply yet. Any other pros and cons appreciated. Thanks, Rick
  12. Not much happening. Took a shaker King on the wire and one other hit. That was it for the morning. Good temp and a lot of bait but very few fish marked. woeked from about 80 out to 250. Lots of boats out but no reports so I assume not much is happening. Sure hope the lake sets up soon.
  13. Did you head east or west out of the Bay? Had a slow day east last Monday so I was thinking of trying west a bit.
  14. Mounted a new Humminbird helix 7. Seems to work fine trolling but when up on plane the depth goes crazy. I mounted the transducer according to the instructions provided. It might be tilted a little back slightly. I thought this would be better than forward to read rigger balls if not exactly parallel with the water line. (Hard to distinguish on the trailer) Could it be air bubbles and turbulence when running faster? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Rick
