  1. 7.5 max HP Kicker motor mount and steering assembly I have a kicker motor bracket assembly for sale. Not sure of the age. I am guessing from the 80's as i remember it on Dad's boat. It has the tiller arm to attach to your outdrive so you can steer it from the helm. It looks to be in great shape if someone is interested I can go take photos and get you more info. I dropped it off in my storage place. It looks like a Spar Marine raise/lower bracket. The steering looks to be something like the EZ-Steer quick connect.
  2. If you can't find ZEP or want an alternative, checkout "The Works" toilet bowl cleaner. I am crazy about a clean boat. I have acid washed every year (I am over 50). 2 years ago a fellow boater told me to give this stuff a shot. It was insane. My 3/4" rug fell right off and the coffee stain was also gone. Boat looked like it came out of the mold. Best part, is that is cost $1.75 at Big Lots or $2.00 at Lowes. The bottles are pretty large and 2 bottles did my 23 footer, one on each side with a 3/4" rug. I applied it with a floor mop (old school sponge head). I have had both galvanized and aluminium trailers. None of this stuff is good for them. My tip to you is put a lawn sprinkler under the middle of the boat after you are done. Let it run for a few hours. It flushes any leftover acids away from the metal and out of the bunks. I have never had any etching issues on either trailer doing this.
  3. Found it, no more than 3 poles or 15 hook points. Angling Angling means taking fish by hook and line. This includes bait and fly fishing, casting, trolling and the use of landing nets to complete the catch. Anglers must be in immediate attendance when their lines are in the water. An angler may operate no more than three lines with or without a rod. each line is limited to not more than five lures or baits or a combination of both. in addition, each line shall not exceed 15 hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks. Snatching, lifting, hooking and use of tip-ups are not angling.
  4. I thought they changed it a few years back. It is no longer the number of poles. It is the number of hook points I thought. So 3 poles was legal if you had under the limit of points. I'll have to look it up to get the right number of hook points.
  5. Chased a problem like this on my fathers boat (350 Ray with twin 454's). Would you believe after a lot of jerking around, it was the stock tach's. We discovered it while testing. I forgot to re-hook the tach's. Then it ran perfect. We had changed points, caps, rotors, plugs, wires. Full electrical tuneup. By forgetting to hook the tachs backup, we found the problem. Something to think about if you are at a loss or looking for something to try that does not cost any money.
  6. Same here, was going to launch out Braddocks this morning but could not find anyone to go. For the first time ever the boat is just sitting in the driveway ready to roll. Last summer was 23 launches. This year 0.
  7. for sale : usa

    I have in the 1000 islands. Fish all day, eat on an island or go to town for dinner. Then back out to an island cove and drop a hook bow/stern. I have spent an entire week doing that. If I had to do that in open lake conditions, that would get really boring really fast.
  8. I have the HDS Gen2 (non-touch). With the sonar hub and that TM150 with CHIRP and the long probe side scanning one. I am not 100% sold on the Airmar my stock transducer gives me a really good picture. The Airmar looses the bottom a lot and the screen looks identical to the stock tiny transducer. It is very bubble sensitive as well.
  9. No, it does not look good. I live up near the lake and grew up on the lake and have lots of friends who live on the water. I see it daily and don't see anything before mid-late July. I called my storage place today and asked what the cost is to keep the boat in longer (no need for tree spinners, bird doo, pollen and leaves filling the boat). He told me not to worry about it right now. That was nice of him. I am going out this weekend to pull the batteries and bring them home just in case it ends up spending the summer in the barn. They are on year 5 this year. Hope it works out with your slip.
  10. Marina's are hurting right now. You may run into the old, this was not the fault of the marina and we can't refund your money. We will knock 10% off of next years slip fee. What does your contract state if you have one. You might have a handshake and not written.
  11. I get it, people do eat them. My father always did. I grew up on the water and we fished all the time and he would eat everything. I was in part, joking. I personally catch and release. I hate the taste of fish. However some of the 2 - 3 lb walleye out of the bay look really clean and very good. I often thought of cooking one up. Now, I doubt I will. Most fish taste like what they are eating. Is it possible their food is nasty due to the muddy waters. In essence, garbage in garbage out.
  12. You eat the fish from these waters?
  13. My lowrance would do that. I finally figured out I needed to set it to deep water. I have several settings like fresh water, clear water, muddy water deep water... Not sure if the hummingbird is the same. Also it is imperative to my performance that I select the correct transducer in my setup. Again not sure if your has these settings, but it is worth a look.
  14. Sounds like it is starving for fuel. I am not sure why you say it has no jets, there has to be a few items metering air and fuel. Needle seats and small orifices. Did you change your fuel filter. Check the fuel ball and make sure it is hard and stays hard. If it collapses on itself it is pulling a vacuum and you need to check the fuel tank vent system. If it is starving for fuel it is running lean. The worst thing ever for a two stroke, it can seize up or melt the exhaust side of a piston under a lean condition. When it starts to die and you add choke does it recover or stall out. http://www.crowleymarine.com/johnson-evinrude/parts/47531.cfm?mdl=YZ0APG http://www.crowleymarine.com/johnson-evinrude/parts/47551.cfm?mdl=YZ0APG
