  1. Boy that brings back memories, hanging off a mousetrap bracket on the back of my boat, quartering the wind so you didn't turn green from the exhaust, We ran one for 20 years!
  2. X2 on Lakebound88's method.
  3. Pap, This is an example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-step-Stainless-Under-Platform-Slide-Mount-Boat-Boarding-Telescoping-Ladder-/182372587378?hash=item2a7640d772:g:Zg0AAOSwcUBYP44o&vxp=mtr
  4. Which side of the boat did you put the bananas under?
  5. Thanks for the input. I was looking at the 4 step models - nothing worse than too short of a ladder.
  6. Swim Ladder I built a 24" wide, 18" deep swim platform for the back of my 21' Penn Yan to aid in netting fish, carry the cooler and, oh yeah, climb back into the boat on those fishless summer trips. My question is in regards to quality of telescoping below deck swim ladders such as you see on Ebay, they all look to be about the same quality. Does anybody have any personal experience with mounting and using them? Is there any quality there and are some of the expensive ones marine suppliers sell any better? Thanks in advance and before Les pounces on this most of my fishless days are under his tutelage.
  7. Mike, My problem is Les keeps trying to eat those shrimp right out of the perch's mouth. Thats not as bad as him throwing the perch back in the lake after he's gotten all their shrimp.
  8. THE PROPELLER WORKS 53 Leicester st Cananadaigua NY 14424 (585) 394-1860 They have helped me a couple times. I believe I sent them pizza once I was so satisfied and I'm a cheap skate.
  9. This has been interesting banter. I didn't know I could lock my radio off the distress channels. I sometimes shut it off though. I have had the opportunity to help several less fortunate boaters over the years and been dragged in once myself long ago. I can't imagine anyone not coming to the aid of a fellow boater, especially on one of the big lakes. If we hear or see you we will try to help.
  10. I'll take them. Sending you a PM
  11. cash & carry but where do you live??
  12. You need to understand Sk8man and Hop have been doing this kind of fishing year round since the early to mid 1970's and see things going on watching their rod tips that we mere mortals will never grasp. Or it could be the entire days they spent out there when the rest of us decided to stay warm and dry.
  13. SKUNK Took my daughter and probable son-in-law out of Hughes, hit the water around 6:30AM, worked from 80' - 130" of water, best screen around 80 - 90 then moved up to 65 - 70 but we couldn't even buy a release. tried from 2.0 - 3.2 mph. High point of trip was breakfast sandwiches son in law grabbed at Hughes - they where excellent. Good luck to you all, Bob
  14. Enough about my net, I believe it's seen more use than yours this year! Your concern about net size reminds me of the “Napoleon Complexâ€
  15. I finally figured out that Les dulled the hooks on all the homemade flies that he's given me! :lol:
