  4. Would be a long run lol The "trench " is a canyon between Stoney Island and Stoney Point out of Henderson Harbor on the east shore .
  5. Trench 8/30 Fished the Trench from 6;30 to12;00 noon . Screen was loaded with marks all day . Managed 4 kings and 2 coho . No majors , kings ran 12 to 16 lbs. Lots of boats but everyone was courteous and gave plenty of room .
  6. X2. I had to replace my cable this past spring. Same symptom hard steering. Not a bad job. Running it to the stern was the worst part take your old cable out before you order the new cable. The length is clearly marked on the cable Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. I took the 13 week course with my son when he was 10 so that he could operate the boat I gained a wealth of knowledge from that course regarding the rules of the road on the water. You can't operate a motor vehicle without classes ,training and testing Why should ANYBODY be allowed to operate a boat without like training. I have been an advocate of mandatory training and have contacted legislators Re: this matter. I know. You will say training won't stop idiots. But at least they will have a clue about how to operate a boat. Which many out there don't Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
