  3. Offshore IV, I’m glad that you were able to take something from this and protect yourself and your crew. When I was doing safety boardings it frustrated me when asked about life jackets to life rafts, the owner or captain would say they didn’t have room to have them reachable above deck. Complacency kills and we all think it won’t happen to us. Even though I’m a retired coastie, long time boat handler, and captain, I used to bust a friend’s balls (very inexperienced boater and has a smaller boat) because he would always wear an inflatable vest. After this tragedy, I apologised to him. Although, I’m a retired coastie, over 30 years boating experience and been on hundreds of search and rescue missions, I too learned a couple of things.

  4. Here is the link for a go fund me page to help the family of the deceased, Carl Hazel. if you would like to donate to the family. Because, it had been shared on social media and wouldn’t take much to guess, the operator was John Kelley. I’ve talked to him several times since this tragedy. When I get his permission, I’ll post the details of the accident so we all can learn. For those of you who hold judgement based on previous conversations or experiences, you can be assured this was not the case on Saturday. Again, once I get his permission, I’ll pass along the details. At the end of the day, 2 families will never be the same and changed forever, in a blink of an eye. If you can find a few extra dollars to donate to Carl’s family please do. https://www.gofundme.com/carl-hazel-memorial-fund Thank you, Tim Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Paul, you’re assessment is completely wrong regarding this tragedy. The survivor is a good friend of mine. I believe you know who he is and he is a LOU member. He is beyond devastated. I have spoken with him about this accident and based on what he told me, this was nothing about stupidity or arrogance. The boat sank instantly. I have been on more rescues and investigations of these incidents then I want to remember throughout my coast guard career. What happened out there was an accident and he did everything he possibly could do for their survival. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. There is a lot to be a charter captain other than insurance and license. Such as must be part of a drug testing program, 1st aid and cpr, commercial equipment such as type 1 life jackets, physical, homeland security background check, and a few other things I may have forgotten. Most of us have gotten our training and testing done through sea tech marine. Dennis is out of buffalo ny (I believe) and is by far one of the best. I can’t speak about an online coarse however I will tell you that passing the nav rules part of the exam is just about impossible without having it taught to you. I too am a part time weekend captain as I have a full time job, part time job, and kids in travel sports all year. I can tell you that once you add in all of your cost (lodging, car fuel, and meals), you will end up pricing yourself above most full time captains. To make enough to pay the dockage and days fuel you would need to book trips all weekend. Not trying to be a downer, but there is a lot to it.

  7. Call finger lakes marine 315-331-7749. I got my drive from him and was awesome to deal with. He has a ton of drives (not so much of the 5.0s). Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. We are in yurt 6. We are arriving Thursday early afternoon as well. Hopefully get checked in and then out for an evening run. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Anyone else staying at 4 mile creek state park may 17th-20th? We will be staying in one of the yurts. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Pulled the top cap off and both the drive shaft and power shaft gears are smooth. These outdrives with gear ratio are very hard to come by. After numerous calls and getting a name from arneys marina in Sodus bay, I found someone that rebuilds them and has one left. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Looking for an out drive. I believe has 1:47 gears (I’ll verify). Hoping to find a complete unit as the lower section has had a crack welded several years ago. Although there is nothing wrong with it, just might as well replace both. Heading in under full power when she let go. The drive shaft spins freely even in gear so, thinking the upper gears a shot. I’ll tear it apart hopefully tonight or tomorrow. Send me a message and I’ll get back with you. Thank you and tight lines Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I launched out of deans cove last Saturday. I have a 25ft hardtop. The center of the cove is shallow (4ft) and 5-6 ft between the markers. I didn’t hit bottom but churned up some mud. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. We were only targeting silvers. The laker took a stickbait off the planer in 19fow. The others came on sticks as well but 8-10fow. Our temps were the same as you. Weather was gin clear out to 30fow. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Went out of Deans Cove for the shakedown. Boat ran great after new carb, hoses, and rebuilt the exhaust manifolds. Went 2-3. Nice 6lb salmon and laker. Lost a nice brown at the back of the boat. We launched at 930 and off around 330. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. We built a “shed” on a 24 foot boat trailer and used it as a spare bedroom at the cottage as Code wouldn’t give a variance to build the shed. So we registered it with the dmv as a home made trailer it had a license plate and trailer lights on the back lol. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
