    That part never touches the water at speed. I would leave it and not worry about it. If the looks bother you, try JB Weld or Marine-Tex. build it up to match, sand and paint with the Yamaha paint.

    Chinook divers

    Where can I get these locally. Their website chart shows these going down to 100'. I want to try them out. I called BE Fishing and Tackle and they do not carry them.

    Dipsy Divers

    I have Diawa and Shakespeare rods with Diawa and Okuma Convector 30 reels. Last week I purchased 2, 9'6" MH Shimano TDR dipsy rods from BE F&T. The price on the rods was so good I bought another Okuma Convector 30 and spooled with with 20lb. These rods are wonderful. I wish I had purchased them a long time ago.
  4. I have an older one in great shape if you need a new one. Has the steering ar m with it. I just found it in a box from one of my fathers old boats. Garlick 55071
  5. I agree, not cottonwood but something new. After trolling this morning we went screwing around for bass in 20 feet. The kids snoopy poles even got the new dark brown fleas jigging for bass. They are impossible to remove and tear up the line.
  6. I have battled fleas since, well forever. But, yesterday out of I-Bay I ended up with the nastiest brown water fleas. Not your normal translucent fleas. These were aggressive fleas. I say that because you can't remove them. They are currently wound up on my reels. I bought a new reel from BEFT yesterday and had them spool it up. Now, 100 feet into the spool where the fleas were the line is all chaffed. The fleas "chomped" on the line and I am not sure the line is any good any more. Has anyone else discovered this new bread of flea. They will not budge, and are dark brown.

    boat cover

    I put one on my 18 Wellcraft center console. It was a bow mounted one and I made a plate to remove it. I also had a custom cover made and it had a velcro addition. I could attach a trolling motor cover (bump-out) or use the traditional closure. That way, no matter what the situation I could cover the boat.
  8. I am all back together now. That channel got me for over $300.00 end of August last year. Folded a mirage plus SS prop and took a giant chunk out of my skag. Many people came up to me at the launch ramp to express their personal prop and lower unit stories. I could not believe how many people had hit and no one is taking any stance to remedy the situation.

    Any rod makers in town

    It was on the Webster, NY Facebook page so my guess is local to Webster. The rod is a 3 year old 13 Fish Omen Black.

    Northern King Lures are back .

    I have many of the original designs from Pat. My father and Pat were great friends and Pat would come and test the lures in our in ground pool On Shoreway Dr. Off of Lowden Pt. Rd in Greece. That was the early 80's. Once Pat got them all tuned up we would jump in the boat and head out to the lake via the Long Pond channel. We CRUSHED the fish with them lures. All of them plated with real sterling silver as Pat said, "nothing reflects like real polished silver". Well, my father passed away 3 years ago and when I was looking at his old tackle, there they were. All original NKs wrapped in tissue, hand made and never used.
  11. On another forum an older fella is looking to get his favorite rod repaired. His large 1st guide snapped at the foot and he will need a new foot and a rewrap. He took it to B&E and they could not help. I know guys around town make rods. I am hoping one of them can fix this for the guy.

    Cheap Chineese Kicker

    The "sneezing" effect on a 2-stroke outboard is usually caused by too lean of a condition. Because the lean bur is a fast burn it escapes out the exhaust port before the piston can close it. It may also be a direct cause of the low compression. A lean burn is a very hot burn and it will melt the piston. Most often on the exhaust port side. If you like to tinker, it should be a really fun 3 hours of your morning. Then fatten up or clean them carbs. Read your plugs.

    Sodus or Canandaigua for prop repair

    I had to visit a customer in Victor yesterday. So, these folks are only another 15 min. I stopped in and dropped off my prop. She told me that they are the only game in any driving distance. Her husband now picks up props from marinas in PA and NY as far the Adirondacks. All the other prop shops went out of biz. They are really good folks to deal with it will be back before the boat is out of storage.

    Sodus or Canandaigua for prop repair

    I won't order the one I want (because there is no way to know how it will perform) . I want to try 4 or more then pay the 5 or 600 for the prop. A guy in FL is willing to send me the 4 he thinks will work better. But I have to pay shipping both ways for 4 ss props and buy one of them. Not worth it for me. It sucks we don't have quality places to buy props around here. The folks in FL will bend over backwards for me. I'll take it to Canandaigua, they fixed a prop for me several years ago and did a great job.
  15. I am looking for some advice. I have been to both locations but not in a long time. I found the bottom in Braddocks Bay last fall. I need a 13P SS Merc Mirage fixed up a bit and if they can go up 1 pitch to a 14 that would be awesome (not everyone can do that). Sodus is 30 min away Canandaigua is 1 hour +.. Thanks
