  1. Check the glass on the passenger side to see if it has a manufacturer name. If it is Taylormade then you might be able to order directly from them-you would likely get the glass and frame in one piece. Believe the windows are made in Gloversville, NY. I had a window on my Proline get broken-once I got part I installed myself-wasn't exactly easy as most of the windshield had to come off to do it right.
  2. With a manual rigger like unitroll 5 you don't need a snubber unless you want to use it as a "break away". Snubbers come into play with high speed electrics to take away shock from rapid stop. With a manual just wind slower as you near top. You might use 5lb weight fishing shallow and slow. Most of the time you'll want to use 10lb when fishing deeper for less blowback. Best way to get used to riggers is to get on water and run them.
  3. Great detail-impressive. Customer will really enjoy.
  4. A custom cover maker should be able to use the existing snaps on the boat. Make sure you tell them that is what you want. Custom covers well worth the money- every couple years spray on fresh waterproofing.
  5. My tracks came with 1 3/4" screws, flat washers, lock washers and nuts. I have some Bert's and they use same size.
  6. Believe I saw that Daiwa was no longer making parts for the GL reels about a year ago so parts were limited to stock on hand. Lots of those reels around but could be harder to find parts as time goes on.
  7. It's important to determine exactly which model Cannon you need parts for. The Mag 10A was made earlier and is older than the Mag 10 with different motors for each model. Motors are available for the Mag 10 and not available for Mag 10A. Fish 307 has Cannon schematics by model to help identify each model-the motor cover design is an easy way to tell. Cannon didn't make this easy by how they designated model numbers with so many Mag 10 models over the years. Not sure what exact years Mag 10A were made, but I bought some in 1988 and that wasn't first year for that model.
  8. FishingFool, your problem with slow retrieve/breaker trip sounds like an issue inside the right angle drive on the motor. Inside the circular cover there are some plastic pucks/gears that can break which causes the bind and slow retrieve. This is a sealed unit but it can come apart so you can check- if you see small chunks of plastic as it comes apart that's the problem. These riggers are pretty old so parts are limited. Fish 307 and Screwy Louie's both good sources of info.

  15. All mono does have the release issue with stretch and lack of depth due to larger diameter. I like the mono section for the slide diver to slide on as the SD doesn't slip on the mono. SD website does have some videos on different setups which can be helpful.
