  1. In my younger days (30 years ago) I worked at several small marinas, & west marine when they first opened, so I ended up with numerous interactions with them. I can’t say any were great, most were bad, refusing or giving me crap about paying to launch a boat to demo, etc. I bought a used boat from them years back, it was a x act Lu what I was looking for, but like you said they definitely didn’t go above & beyond for the sale didn’t clean/wax boat, barely fixed the small issues I found.
  2. Aren’t they the same as Johnson anyway ?
  3. No matter what size boat that’s a given on this lake IMO....if nothing else it can get uncomfortable
  4. Yes & no. It depends on the circumstances & what your expectations are. If your fishing inshore waters for say browns in spring Or kings in fall I’d say absolutely, if your thinking of running 5 miles off shore for summer steelhead....that’s another story. It’s all about you though.
  5. You can renew them online just need trailer plate & registration number for boat. I did have a hard time the other day with trying to register a trailer. Not sure if it was system or operator error on my end.
  6. Good to hear, that they at least recognize there is an issue. Some of the private launch fee prices I’ve heard are outrageously high, like they know it’s supply & demand. Which is truly sad, I’m a snow contractor & I know when we have had nasty storms (mainly buffalo) & contractors pulled that (by us) the state nailed them to a cross (fined the crap out of them, made them give refunds, etc). Interested to know why that isn’t the case now.
  7. Sounds like the state. Don’t spend money to make the ramp so it’s useable during high water events. Spend money to prevent people from using it at all.
  8. What legacy said is correct. I watched one guy that put his in to far & got it stuck, had to have a tow truck their, etc. it was quite the production getting it unstuck.
  9. Good job, I think I saw you headed home going through Hamlin on 19.
  10. My brother just had his done last winter (2016-17). I want to say it is a 1987 merc 130. He tried Bryce all they wanted to do was install a short block. I believe the guy that did it is in Webster, & actually rebored the cylinders, etc. I can get all the details if you want more info.
  11. The two docks along the launches were in the other day, the floating section was not. Just an FYI, bring your waders, even though the docks were in, some of the dock itself was under water. This was before the most recent rains on Thursday/Friday so I'm sure it's worse now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. As of this morning the docks at sandy were not in. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I worked at the old marina there as a kid. It depends on the height of the boat & water levels. We had 25+' boats come through (low profiles), but I don't think my 23' Striper will fit under the bridge, especially this time of the year, then in the fall you run out of water depth at the mouths of the channel. My brother lives on the pond and at times has to push his 19' with an outboard on it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
