  1. I was out today and temp was 75-85 down in 120-220.
  2. FYI, fleas were bad at Sandy today.

    boat cover

    I leave my boat out all of the time except for winter and then store it in a barn in Hamlin. I usually cover it when I'm traveling. If I don't cover it after fishing I'll get lazy and not put it on when I get home.

    Yea, that's nice. The cover i'm getting won't be convertible. Thinking about some padding around the trolling motor blade might be a good idea.

    I've had things blow out of the boat plus where I park it in my driveway there's a big oak that drops all sorts of stuff into the boat.

    boat cover

    I had my last boat 11 years and used to take the motor off when I stored it for the winter but I even stopped doing that after 3 or 4 year. I store my boat in a metal barn in Hamlin for winter and never had a problem with theft.

    boat cover

    The dealer where I just bought my boat, 18 ft Alumacraft at Frontenac Harbor, told me half the people who have bow mounted trolling motors take them off to put a travel cover on. I told him I never remove my trolling motor but have it on a quick release plate in case I need service. So they're ordering me a new cover to fit over my trolling motor so they get credit for that. So am I uninformed or off base thinking nobody takes there trolling motor and puts it back one every time they go fishing?

    Thanks again for all the input. Looks like 3 choices for trolling, kicker,bags, and trolling plate. I guess the worse for low speed should be about 2.8 or so but will wait and see. My old boat was a Crestliner fish hawk 1750 with a 115 hp e-tech, trolled down to 2.2 or so. In 11 yrs put all most 1000 trolling hrs on it. Worked great, maintenance every 3 yrs. Will wait and see. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the input, I may also have to get bags or a kicker also. I plan on using my trolling motor while trolling. I'm getting the 80 lb 24 volt minnkota. Trolling bags are certainly much cheaper and maintenance free.

    Good to hear.

    Thanks Gator! I don't think the warranty requires a certified tech but just proof that service was performed.

    Good to know. I would rather avoid getting a kicker, just another motor to take care of.

    Thanks for the reply. That's where I bought the boat, Alumacraft Tournament Sport 185, not near 8000 lbs. I assume your happy with Frontenac service? I live in Greece, an 80 min drive from Frontenac and the reason I'm looking elsewhere but I still may take it there.
