  1. LOL - We're not paranoid - everyone IS out to get us!!
  2. I'm looking for a Minn Kota trolling motor that I can use on a 17 foot skiff - Cayuga Lake. I have a 24V battery. My main goal is to maintain position in the wind and maneuver in small spaces. Please let me know what you have. Thanks, Rick
  3. Nice - how deep were you fishing?
  4. Sean, thanks very much - I'll look into this possible solution as it seems pretty straightforward. Rick
  5. Thanks - in this case, I'd prefer to go with a pro. I see that a lot of different things can cause the steering problem, including a faulty motherboard as well as mechanical and electrical connections. Hoping for some diagnostic guidance!
  6. My Terrova runs fine but does not turn to the right or left with either iPilot or foot controls. I live near Trumansburg. Any suggestions for someone who can repair this? Thanks, Rick
  7. That's a very good point - lol.. Thanks

  9. Congrats to you and your new wife!
  10. What is the MLS #? X5258560 doesn't work, assuming it's in Ontario province..
  11. I saw that last one - I think they got carried away by saying that Seneca Lake is turning into a hot tub.. I don't like the situation, but sensationalizing it just makes the problem less credible to the general public.
  12. Good luck with that EMT exam, Todd - we definitely need more EMTs both now and in the future.
  13. Nice work, and a great long term project. I got a few good ideas from you that I am going to try. Bob Vila is jealous! Rick
  14. Not sure why Seneca. It might have something to do with the distribution of electric power. Lots of local power plants often means a more stable electricity supply. That comes, of course, at an environmental cost. I live on Cayuga Lake and can see the inactivated Milliken power plant from my house. It had been coal-fueled. When the power company proposed running gas lines to the plant as fuel, Lansing activists protested and so that plant sits idle as well. When an investor proposed the plant be used as a data center, locals refused that as well. So Milliken is another vacant power plant with lots of electric lines connected to it. Maybe with the price of copper increasing so much, someone can at least sell Milliken assets for scrap metal.
  15. Gator, I know exactly what you mean! I have a massive collection of rods that I built, but typically only use six or seven of them. Don't have any off the shelf rods at least - sold them all!
  16. Rod building is fun when you have a goal in mind. Are you looking to customize the rod grip, build a rod with a specific balance, design your own guide spacing, or create a rod with an action that you just can't get off the rack? Go for it but take your time and do your research. As others have pointed out, you'll probably spend more than buying a rod off the rack. But you get exactly what you want/ need. It's custom, after all.. Good luck, Rick
  17. I'll take the Fish Grip - really could have used one last night! Please PM with payment info and estimated shipping cost to Interlaken NY, Thanks, Rick
  18. What sort of fishing tackle/ supplies will be there?
  19. Thanks for your quick reply, Kathleen Best wishes, Rick
  20. Hi Kathleen, sorry for your loss. Do you happen to have any butterfly jigs (Shimano makes them)?
