    Carb help

    My guess is that the high ethenol gas has destroyed your phenolic float. You can buy a kit from iboats or west marine. I have rebuilt my mercarb and one for a friend. Not a bad job if you have any mechanical knowledge. You will need your carb number as there are early and late carbs. And you will need to buy the new float separately, as it doesn’t come with the kit

    Carb help

    Is it a Rochester or Mercarb ? Sounds like it’s not getting enough air. Is the choke stuck on ? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    flares

    This is untrue. The CG encourages you to carry expired flares along with current unexpired flares

    flares

    The electronic devices meet nighttime requirements ONLY. You still need daytime signaling devices on board during daylight operation CG regulations state “ 1 handheld orange smoke device and 2 floating orange smoke devices in addition to the electronic signaling device Check out uscgboating.org Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    flares

    One word of caution re: 12 gage flares and launcher They are considered a weapon in Canadian waters and are illegal. If you plan on fishing Canadian waters , leave the flare gun at the dock Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Wind Turbines on Lake Ontario!

    Wolf Island is in the St. Lawrence River in the Canadian side across from Cape Vincent it is an eyesore , especially at night when the hundreds of red anti collision lights are flashing. You are correct that the skyline is affected. Driving property values down. At least having the turbines on Galloo island minimizes any spill concerns. The big problem for fishermen and casual boaters is the 30 mile underwater cable that will run to Oswego. Will it affect the fishing ? Will there be an exclusion zone for boaters ? No answers to these questions so far Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile appby the way. That underwater cable will run through some of the best fishing waters on the East end of the lake. Hate to be bouncing bottom for oil cans ( lake trout ) and snag that cable. That would be shocking. Makes me concerned about an exclusion zone
