  1. Sea sick

    Over the counter "Bonine" IS Meclizine.....
  2. Starret Surface Plate cleaner. Some of my grinders at work are cream colored and get covered with grinding dust, graphite and coolant. Surface plate cleaner is the only thing that cleans them up. I use it on all my light colored surface to remove the gunk.

    Here's a link to my floor project last year.... https://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/62636-my-old-boat/?tab=comments#comment-461346
  5. I jump between the big boards and inlines with the Sam's pro release, and a red OR- 16 release with the pin in the middle, off the back of the board. Anglers Avenue has a video on how to rig the Sam's. I hated inlines until I switched out to this rigging. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eIdZWT1-CA

  8. Thank You for the heads up..... I checked the website and both my marine extinguishers were in the recall. 2 new replacements are on their way to me, free of charge.
  9. Carbon in my Merc!

    I have an older 2 stroke Merc, and have been using Sea Foam in my fuel for the last 4 years. It has made a world of difference in performance. I troll the big lake all season and have no more carbon problems. There is a "de-carb" process you can do to clear the existing carbon using Sea Foam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXcfsmuruc0
  10. Braddocks

    Just saw your post Friday afternoon. Plenty of water at Braddocks for smaller boats. Launched my 17 ft. aluminum this morning, marina on E.Manitou Rd., watched a 16ft boat launch out of the West side marina. 3-5 ft. of water most places. No problem with lake access, stay in the marked channel. Good Luck. .
  11. Updating my electronics

    Once you hit that price level, you will have a ton of options. Check out Furuno.... commercial quality at a reasonable price. My sounder is Furuno and I couldn't be happier with it. https://www.hodgesmarine.com/Furuno-Gp1870f-7-Color-Gps-Chartplotter-Fishfind-p/furgp1870f.htm
  12. Missing Fisherman Found Dead

    I have used this information to better prepare my boat. It talks about small, ocean going boats, but pertains to the Great lakes as well. I closed off through hull fittings, increased pumping capacity and battery isolation circuits to keep afloat in an emergency situation. http://www.docksidereports.com/small_boat_safety_at_sea.htm
