    Should also mention that I did not like the idea of using the screws provided for mounting in aluminum. Seems like they were meant only for fiberglass. I used Stainless 1/4-20 button head screws instead and plenty of the 3m polyurethane sealant. Worked well. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I have them on 2 boats and they work well. Put them on a Smokercraft Ultima 192 that had a porposing problem no matter how far the motor was trimmed down. Solved it and helped get on plane faster even though getting on plane was acceptable. Also, later put them on a Sea Nymph GLS 175 that rode rough in 2 foot + waves because of difficulty keeping the bow down without using excessive trim. Helped with that also. Paid about $100 a set for factory seconds that had a cosmetic defect. Cant see anything actually wrong with them. Bought them online but cant remember where.

  3. Usually can find videos of most any mechanical maintenance if you search online. About a year ago I was changing the rear brakes on a Volvo S60. Retracting the caliper piston had me completely frustrated. Was a very odd procedure that was explained by an online video. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. When you drain the block make sure it is completely drained especially if you dock or run in a muddy area. I always pull the drain plugs, let it drain, pull the lower end of the water pump hose, and some other hoses. I then use compressed air and a cone shaped fitting to blow into the block and headers. Plenty more mud, sludge and water still comes out. Started this procedure after a friend lost a block to trapped mud and water when he thought the water was all out.

  5. I am off sandy pond now in 150 ft. Temp down 60 is 51 deg. A few bait pods around 60 ft.but have not seen a fish anywhere since I started at 630 am Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Made the switch comment because I thought you were worried about electrolysis. Wont catch more fish but the Cannon riggers always pull a small current when plugged in, even when not in use. The switch will stop that. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Get a battery switch. Hook everything through the switch so all can be turned off except the connection for the automatic line on the bilge pump. Put that directly on the battery or the battery lug (input) side of the switch. Flip the switch when you leave and it will turn everything off except the automatic bilge pump. Put it out of sight and you will also get a bit of boat theft protection (from amateur thieves anyway!). Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I tried early spring brown tactics in Oct and caught plenty of smallmouth bass but few browns. Going to try the 62 degree water meeting bottom tactic this Oct. Now retired so I can pick nice days. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I lost one like that in the spring of 2018 in that area. Okuma Convector on it with 12 lb test Maxima. Cable from the planing board got caught on one of the eyes and lifted it out of the rod holder. Had eight of em for spring browns, now I have seven. Probably shot by now.

  11. I am very familiar with Towne Marine in Bloomsburg. Bought 2 boats from him over the last few years. Something strange about him handling an Etec as new. They are a Yamaha dealer. I asked about Evinrude and Merc a few years ago and he said they don't deal with them. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I used the smart tabs. No electrics or hydraulics involved. You can set the load higher on one side by moving the self contained cylinder to a different mount hole. Should help your problem. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Have a look a Nautico Smart Tabs. They can be set so you can put more lift on one side of the boat constantly. I have the on my 2 boats and they solved my problems very well. $99 on line at Iboats They call them a factory cosmetic blem at that price but I can see nothing wrong with them.
