    for sale : usa 2003 Trophy Pro. 2052

    Been a lot of discussion on the rainwater in the fishboxes on this website. I will forward the info to you that I have when I find it. If you search for other Trophy boats for sale in this site you will also see the info.

    I have the same boat and it has an hour meter in an unusual place. It looks like a factory installation but I cant be sure. It is mounted on the transom behind the engine on the port side. A bit hard to notice.
  3. Has a no fee state launch also. Turn left on Stanley Dr off at 3
  4. Sandy Pond is about 5 mi away. Good for bass, pike, panfish etc. Can go out on the lake from there if it is calmer.
  5. Maybe there is a new world record lurking about. I see there was a new IGFA world record brown 44+ lbs caught in New Zealend.
  6. Most outboards recommend manually applying grease to the starter pinion and on the gear yearly
  7. Looks like the seat could use some work.
  8. Make sure the gasket or o-ring on your gas cap is in good condition and doing the job. This is often overlooked. Can leak especially if it is the screw on type on a horizontal surface. I check mine by putting some gas in a small squirt bottle and putting a bit around the cap when it is closed. If it stays for a few minutes, it is ok. If it leaks down quickly, it needs attention. Thing how much rainwater can be seeping in
  9. Very shallow, perhaps at most 2 ft deep on the lake side. On the pond side very shallow south of the channel. On the north side there is a bit more depth if you stay away from the shore and go outside the first sand mound that has formed on the pond side. However, it would be difficult to get out on the lake if there is any swells over a foot or two, especially with a heavier, fiberglass boat. Skeg and prop would be deep in the sand at the bottom of every wave. Looks like the season is shot for Sandy Pond to lake fishing on anything but a smaller aluminum boat.
  10. Had a similar problem on a 2012 Yamaha T9.9. Always seemed to slow down on the pee hole. Was just the fact that the hose to the fitting on the end was a slight choke point that would constantly clog because my slip was in a weedy area. Kept a 6 in piece of stiff wire on board and poked out the hole occasionally, problem solved.

    No Gas

    Get ready to send your boats to the junkyard and by a Tesla boat. That's next thanks to the nut running the country. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. You can get a small digital tach/hourmeter online for about $10. Stick it on the front of the motor. Battery powered and is triggered by induction from one of the spark plug wires. Simply wrap the pickup wire around the outside of the spark plug wire a few times. Also monitors hours for oil change, etc. Used on ATV's, outboards, etc Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. 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
  14. Yes, was good eating. Still have half in the freezer. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. 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
  16. $20 off marine batteries at Sam's Cub May 8 to 16 Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Compression check to tell location if head gasket Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. 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
  19. 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.

  20. 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
  21. 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.

  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
