    Cayuga 1/14

    Fairly slow. I was working inside water for lakers, caught a few, then moved deep and jigged up a few. Ened up back inside and caught one more. It was a nice day on the water though.....thank goodness for two batteries on my trolling motor. My starter battery died, so I had to use one of those to get it fired up.... Off to the battery store tonight...not messing with that!

    Cannon Mag 10HS troubleshooting

    O ohms is not open, it is zero resistance (Short). An open circuit is infinite ohms. Likely the motor is fine. It is not zero ohms, but close to it. Your meter probably isn't that precise. First check the load side of the circuit breaker to make sure it is not faulty. Then unhook one of the motor leads from the board. When you hit the switch you should hear (and you can feel it too, if you put your finger on the relay.) the relay clicking. The relays (one for raise, one for lower) are the black boxes on the board. If they are clicking then the circuit board is getting the signal from the switch. Take a jumper wire and connect the motor directly to the load side of the circuit breaker. The motor should run. If the motor runs and you hear the relay clicking in you probably have a cold solder joint in the board. Likely the 12V (load) circuit part of the board. I just fixed one recently with that problem. ( A one minute solder job) If you are so inclined I can send you some picture of the pin outs of the relays so you can check them. While I am at it...the printed circuit boards on cannons are junk. They claim they are potted (coated to resist corrosion), but its a poor excuse for potting. Open up a Penn (wish they still made them) if you want to know what real potting is.

    Anybody own a Hewescraft Ocean Pro 220?

    Don't forget your pocketbook! I can tell you that when I went out there I had my heart set on the Alexis. But after I looked at the Luxor i was thinking it was enough boat. Zeiglers was the biggest Thunderjet Dealer. I see now they are not selling them. I would love to know what happened. A guy named Chris Young was the main salesman. he had come from another dealer. I think they jump around alot. I will post a pic of my Parker., just been too busy lately.

    Anybody own a Hewescraft Ocean Pro 220?

    This topic is of interest because I was in the exact same frame of mind as you are. So, two years ago I went to Portland Oregon and went to about 8 or 9 different dealerships. I actually test drove a Thunderjet Luxor and a 22 ft Ocean Pro. The problem with testing out there is it is on a river which is pretty calm. I believe the Thunderjet is much nicer with respect to fit and finish. I liked the OP too but it wasn't finished as well. I really liked the Duckworths and also the Alumawelds. The Kingfisher and the Raider are the least well appointed with respect to fit and finish. I ended up buying a like new Parker 232 SL, from a person in western PA. It saved me about $30k. It is a wide open platform. the sides are a little low so I used my traxstech to raise it up. it is heavy also, and a little less convenient to haul around, but it is still definitely a go anywhere boat. I also was aboard a Steigercraft in Maryland and I don't think it is on par with the Parker..... I would like to know what you end up getting, so keep us posted. PS. I still have a hankering for the Thunderjet, and maybe someday???
