  1. All the above comments are basically true. If you want to give it another try I would do the following: The bolt that ripped out was too far down creating a large "moment" that caused the failure. The bolts should be at least 3/ 8 dia with another one added about 3/4 from the top. 3 per side. The ss angle appears to be bending so I would recommend alum bar at least 1/4 thick and as wide as the ss angle half that touches the transom to be placed over each side before the bolts are placed thru. The bracket still is a bit light for the application but that is your call. This recommendation is from a mechanical engineer with 43 years of machine design and structural analysis experience.

  2. My neighbor bought an 89 Sea Nymph 195 with a 100hp Merc. Nothing but problems. Wanted to troll with it, that was a joke. Was going to put on a kicker. I suggested that the 2 stroke merc was not to be relied upon to be 7 or so miles offshore. Always missing, hard to start, etc I suggested that he put on a new 4 stroke and forget about the kicker. He bought a new 90 Yamaha V Max four stroke. Fantastic motor, does everything and he never looked back. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Just rec'd my 4 x 16lb torpedoes. Look great, thanks Harvey. Len Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Get them at most sg stores like Fat Nancy's Dreamweaver makes a heavier duty looking version. F N has them Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. It is most likely a scam. Saw a nice rig supposedly located in Lockport, NY. Saw the same add in the Cleveland Craigslist but said the boat was located in Helena, Montana. All scams!! Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Interesting rig. I know Bertram builds top notch Yachts. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Illegal aliens or too much hanging around the nuke plant Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Yamaha F70LA, fuel injected four stroke weighs 257 lbs. It is lighter than the old 2 strokes. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Attachment Tried to send gasket and seal catalog but LOC message said attachments of this type are not supported. Send your e-mail to me in a private message and I will forward the window gasket and seal catalog from American Marine. They are distributed by Pompanette LLC.

  10. The Cannons have a circuit breaker built in for motor current overload. The problem is that doesn't help if you have a short circuit between the power source (battery) and the downrigger circuit breaker. A 40 amp breaker installed on the positive line close to the battery is recommended. Usually less than a $10 item at most auto part stores. Fuses are ok but a resettable breaker is much more convenient. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Not a tubular shape, that is a capacitor. The relays are about a 1 inch black square block. If u have a large tubular capacitor on the board, it is not a 5st or 10stx board. The "caps" on that are rectangular white blocks. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Not the relay "coil", but the whole relay. That is the device shown in the picture. There are two of them on the PWB (printed wiring board) of the 5st and 10stx. They are $1.94 each online. The whole control board will cost $75 with shipping. Twice that if you have a service center do it. The contacts in the relay corrode and /or burn and become useless, than no function on the rigger.

  13. I have previously owned a 2001 Sportcraft 272. I had a few of the sliding windows that had disintegrated gaskets. Could never find them anywhere. After I sold it I ran across a company that had the exact right thing. Try an outfit called Pompanette LLC. They specialize in marine window gaskets in seals. As for the kicker, i had a Yamaha T 9.9 XPA on it. The 25 in shaft worked great and it was quiet and smooth. Worked well up to 3 ft waves than it struggled after that. Burned almost no fuel. If I would do it today, I would go with the 15 hp merc with EFI. Low noise and low vibration makes a 5 hr trolling morning much more enjoyable. If I want to hear engine noise and vibration I will stand by the highway and wait for a Harley to go by. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. It's become a matter of this board or me !!!! Going to make it work one way or another ! Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Tried to de-solder the relays from the board. The 3 tabs from the contacts came out fine. The 2 tabs from the relay coil did not work so well. Their "trace" was on the opposite side of the board and did not completely release. The traces pulled away from the board and broke away staying on the relay solder tab. I was able to solder a small piece of wire on each of the remaining trace and I hope to save the board. Before I try to remove the second relay, I will get a hotter soldering iron and a different method to suck up the molten solder from the trace. I was using a small vacuum bulb and never had any luck with those. I need to get some of the solder wicking flat cable which works better. The relays are available from Digi-key for $1.94 each. They have cut down tabs to go into the holes on the board. It may be more appropriate to leave the relays intact and solder wires to the back side. There are relay sockets with wires available. The relay is a A21CSP from CIT Relay and Switch Co. An A21CSQ would have the full 1/4 tab to go in a socket. This would work well as long as the old relays continue to move even if the the contacts are burned. It would also be possible to cut the relay case apart , remove the contacts and coil to gain access to the soldered tabs. Then solder the wires from a socket to them. This may work better. Still working to improve solder removal and technique. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  17. Retired and fish every possible day. Plenty of Mark's no decent takers for about a week and a half. Out in 125 off dunes right now. Just put em down. Again,lots of Mark's. Got to bite sometime. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Did not try any painted ones. It did not remove any tape on those types. I would say it probably would not degrade the paint. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Put in the new board and it worked fine. Will remove relays when I get home. May be able to solder in a socket so plug in relays can be used. Will check it all out. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Slow morning off the dunes. A few lakers. Did not see anybody doing anything. Lots of Mark's and again no takers. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Fished the last few days morn and evening in front of the dunes 110 to 150 ft. Plenty of Mark's. Not much active fish. A few shakers but mostly browns on spoons. Took today off. Hope the bite improves tomorrow. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. New control board arrived today. No encapsulation on the wave solder joints on the bottom of the board. Can easily de-solder and replace relays. I will be ordering some relays on line to repair the old control board. Everyone with this problem should save their old board since they can be repaired.

  23. I have only 1/4 dia rivets. 1/8 to 3/16 and 1/4 to 5/16 grip ranges. If you decide to open the hole to 1/4, I can send a few Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. I bought a min $75 order a few years ago. Mostly 1/4 but I may have some 3/16. I will be at camp tomorrow and will check what I have. If I have em I will send 4 or 5. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. If you hold the switch in the up position and it continues to stop after 10 ft or so, it is highly likely it is the internal thermal breaker on the motor. Sent from my SM-J737V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
