  1. There is a neighbors cottage down the road from me on Sandy Pond. 3BR 2bath with dock on the Pond for $800/wk last year. PM me if interested and I will forward phone #.
  2. I would think the word "Duplicate" would mean if you need a replacement because the original is lost. Hopefully the fee to transfer would be the same.
  3. I don't know about online. At DMV office you will leave with everything you need to be on the water immediately. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I have transferred 2 boats and a PWC from Pa to NY reg. The last one was about 7 years ago. I had owned all for 5 years or longer before transfer. Never paid any additional sales taxes at the DMV office in Pulaski. I remember filling out a form stating that I had them a certain amount of time and had previously paid sales tax in the previously registered state. Maybe the rules have changed lately. Easy to check by interested parties by asking at the office.
  5. My NY boat registration cards have my Pa address on them. Also, When going to the DMV office in Pulaski, you need multiple forms of personal ID. I forget how the system works for ID, but a Passport is best along with a valid drivers license and some other photo ID. Fill out the forms and Pay, Pay and they will be happy to re-reg in NY. No need other baloney.USPS change of address, ETC, ETC. Just $$$
  6. I am in the same situation as you with a cottage on Sandy Pond. Taxes are unbearable but I put up with it or sit home. I have 3 boats , 2 used for fishing and they are registered in NY. I know they are supposed to be. The trailers are however, registered in PA because it is much cheaper. NY wants $80+ trailer reg for my 27 ft Sportcraft trailer. Unreasonable. $6 in Pa. I have a pontoon bought in Pa and as soon as the current reg is up I will transfer to NY. It is in fact true that the regs say the BOAT should be registered where it is used most. Trailer reg in NY is $5.39 per 500lbs so for a 8500gvw trailer it is $91.63. Sort of like the NY property taxes. Reg in Pa up to 3000 gvw $6. 3001 to 10000 gvw $12 It is very easy to register a boat in NY if you are not a resident. Go to the DMV office in Pulaski with your title, Pay plenty of $$ and they will re-register in NY. No sales tax because you already own it. Lots of fees though. Paperwork and renewal will come to your Pa address. Many years ago Pa did not do boat titles. Then your latest Owners Registration Card will suffice. I had that happen on one boat. Registered a few more also.

  9. Well, if you had the proper Lowrance unit, the autopilot would directly interface with it. With the older outboard, you would not be able to display engine data via NEMA 2000 network.. The are many videos on youtube showing the capabilities of the autopilot.
  10. Hydraulic steering on an outboard is a sweet setup with the Lowrance Autopilot which integrates nicely with the HDS gen 2 or higher units. I recently bought one for about $850 and also bought a hydraulic steering system for my spring brown boat. Will be using it this spring for the first time. Lowrance is a division of Simrad so the unit is similar. Been on a boat with one and it is exceptional. I already have a HDS touch gen 2 and have the Yamaha engine data displayed on it.
  11. To figure it out you need to know the diameter of the piston and its stroke (travel). If you can find out that info it is easy. Volume of the cylinder would be (pi) 3.1416 x radius squared x stroke. Sorry but I don't have scientific abbreviations on this keyboard. For example, if the cylinder diameter is 1 inch and the stroke is 10 inches then: Radius is .5 inch so 3.1416 x (.5 x.5) x 10 to continue .5 x.5 is radius squared which is .25. So 3.1416 x .25 x 10 = 10.785 cubic inches. To prove it on a very common volume that everyone hears about, Take a 350 cubic inch Chevy engine has a 4 inch bore and a 3.48 inch stroke. So 3.1416 x 2 squared x 3.48 is the volume of each cylinder. 3.1416 x 2 x 2 x 3.38 = 43.731 cu in per cylinder. but there are 8 cylinders so 43.371 x 8 = 349.848 cu inches. Chevy rounds it off to 350. To convert to cc (cubic centimeters), multiply cu in x 16.387. So 350 cu in x 16.387 cc = 5735.45 cc or 5.73545 liters and again they round it off to 5.7 liters. Of course you can do the total calculation in cc's if that is the data you have Len
  12. I did a lot of research on this issue. Remington knew about it a bit after introducing that model in the late 1940s. The origional designer wanted to change it but was overruled because it would cost 50 cents per rifle to fix. They have always fought it but lost a few court cases in the 90s after fatalities. Now they are repairing them. The first change/ repair didn't go well because there could be extra epoxy used in a certain area causing a similar issue. The origional issue was caused by a poor fit that would cause the trigger to slip if there was a certain amount of debris or slight wear present. All 700s from inception until those manufactured just a few years ago after the epoxy fix should be considered suspect.Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. It is hard to follow the time line. They made a fix in the early 2000s but that has been recalled for additional problems. The bottom line is every 700 since 1948 when it was first manufactured until the first fix, potentially has the origional problem. I took mine back to the store in 1968 when I was 15. Of course, I wouldn't do that today. This has been a well publicized.problem but just trying to be sure everyone knows about it. As I mentioned, I have personally experienced it 2x. I also have another 700 which was my father's originally and that one has never done it. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Anyone who has a Remington Model 700 rifle in any variation should be aware of the potential FATAL flaw in the safety mechanism. The older versions can discharge by simply moving the safety to the firing position without pulling the trigger. I have one that has done this TWICE in the last 48 years. I bought this rifle at age 15 in 1968 and on its first target firing it discharged without the trigger. I returned it to the sporting goods store where it was purchased and the store owner said he would "adjust it" ?? Seemed OK after that for about 30 years until it happened again while preparing to unload at the end of a day of hunting. Luckily it was pointed at the ground this time. I do not use it anymore. Remington will repair them now after decades of litigation and fatalities. If anyone has a 700, DO NOT have it pointed at anything you may not want to shoot when moving the safety. If in need of repair check out the situation online for return info. Some refer to this as a "Remington Moment".
