  1. If it is a newer mercruiser, it is usually very easy. The tightening mechanism is a small rack and pinion setup. Loosen the outside locking nut, put a box wrench on the head of the pinion and turn it up until belt is tight. Hold the wrench on the pinion until the locking nut is tightened with another wrench. Unless it is in a very confined area it should be easy. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Yes, was good eating. Still have half in the freezer. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Caught this nice 30.5 in walleye while fishing for browns just north of the salmon river. Took a silver and orange Smithwick in about 14 ft of water. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. Compression check to tell location if head gasket Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Could be either. If it was ever overheated from lack of water flow, probably blown head gasket. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Yikes, if you try that idea of towing it back across the water/border have someone on standby with lots of bail money. I have some experience shipping industrial equipment across the border and it is not easy. Brokers to get thru customs etc. are necessary. More problems with Covid lockdown.

  8. I couldn't answer most of your questions but I would highly recommend a 24V system. Probably would not get much torque and bat life from 12V. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I had a 112lb 72in.36 volt Terrova on a Trophy 2052.(21ft). It was on the boat when I bought it. Used just for autopilot steering. It was very,, very effective at that. Held position better than any other type system that I ever had and I have had a few. The capability of turning the bow 90 degrees when required is interesting. With the 72 in shaft it was quite deep and didn't have any problem with it clearing the water in any wave height I wanted to fish. My problem was that I fish alone Often and deploying and retrieving it in 2+ ft waves was unsafe. I did sell it and I am putting a 9.9 on the back. Hope I don't regret it.

  10. I use an app called Windy. Free for the basic app. You can also get up to date current info with the NOAA bouy data. Specifically bouy 45012 which is off Rochester is useful. You can call a phone number and get wave heights, usually delayed about 50 min. You can also set up online to view the info. Very useful. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Slowing the rate for a .8 in rise per week for 3 weeks = 2.4 inch rise in level. Wow! Genius. These people make me sick!. Cant use my dock, tank you IJC. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Been fishing Mexico area for 40+years. There was some slightly low and slightly high years before IJC implemented its plan. Never any problems with flooding or conversely, not enough water to use your slip. Now problems almost every year since they are in control. No one can deny this!!!!. Now the group in control in Washington wants to control all of your life like the IJC controls lake O. God help us ! Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Looked it up online. Every review said it was a scam. Money taken, no product ever received. One comment was that paypal wouldn't refund because of the untraceable funny name the money was paid to. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Back in my working days we used a adhesive backed foam with a thin lead sheet integrated in it for noise reduction on machine covers. Bought it from McMaster Supply Co. The lead in the foam is the key for significant noise reduction. You can order from McMaster online. Problem is that it is not cheap. Inside of doghouse must be very clean, especially from oil for the adhesive to stick. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Meant to say -other than to turn on the relay coil to close the contacts in the relay Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
