  1. Ray Was a pleasure to talk to you. I think I sent you a pm. I am the guy who wants the flatfish Thank you! Kevin
  2. I would be a little leery of the 6 HP. The only reason is the single cylinder design which supposed to be a bit noisy and vibrates a lot. A quick google search yielded this http://www.scottcarle.com/wordpress/?p=330 keep digging you will find more of the same. If it was me i would purchase the 8 Hp that is where the twins start. RED
  3. Sean If you sell one of those Terrovas at a reasonable price to a member of record here I will give you the box that mine came in. Much better chance getting top dollar on e-bag with the box. RED
  4. I plan on adding a kicker to the above boat and have some concerns. The main engine is a 1971 Evinrude 85 V4. I know it is old but the more hours I put on it the better it runs. I will be adding a CMC (craigslist for $100 in 2008) tilt and trim to the 85 so the main engine will be off the transom. May/should I cheat the main outboard starboard to take into account the weight of the kicker. Doing this may also give me more clearance for the kicker possibly eliminating the need to use a auxiliary bracket. Please let me know. Thank you! RED
  5. Your welcome. I did not realize there was a rebate until after I initially posted. Took another $100 of the Terrova. BTW the wifey would have preferred I purchased the motor you did. RED
  6. The Gander Mt in Rochester/Henrietta is running the above special currently. All Minnkota ending in .97 are 50% off. It appeared to be the majority of their stock. I picked up a Terrova, 80#, Universal Sonar with Autopilot for $650.00. It was new in the box. Hopefully someone else will take advantage of those deals. Enjoy! RED
  7. You will not have any problems at any other port that weekend. Braddock Bay Marina is running a special for any displaced captains that weekend. RED
  8. From what I understand all fuel in NY contains ethanol. I hope I am wrong! RED
  9. Talked about at length see the following. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9743 I have been running them as received from the factory but plan on fine tuning my presentation over the next couple of months. They work for me but Yankee's success speak for itself. RED
  10. I am very new to trolling the O and I fish out of Braddock. Where exactly is ship builders? I always assumed it was the channel into Round Pond. The few smallies I caught jigging last year were 4-6 pounds. The scary thing was the size of the Gobys. RED
  11. I will be looking at a mid 70's 24' Penn Yan hardtop. What are the trouble areas I should be looking at? I am very mechanical but new to fiberglass boats. Should I leave the evaluation to a professional? Thank you! Red
  12. I have owned both Humminbird and Eagle/Lowrance fish finders and now own a Lowrance 527 Igps. That being said the Humminbird unit was a lot more user friendly. If there are settings you like to change on the fly with the Humminbird you did not need to page through a complete list of settings to get to it. The unit I use is about 15 years old but seemed to recall the last setting you tweaked and gives you instant access to that parameter. Providing they have not taken steps backwards the Hummibird is probably more user friendly. You might ask why I purchased he Lowrance? It was on sale for $300 and I could not pass on the 5" combo ff/gps at that price. That HDS looks like the cats ass though you probably want to make sure you do not experience the VHF interference issues people are having with the Lowrance external broadband setup. RED
  13. I have often contemplated the same. What hard tops have 6'3" or better of clearance! How much clearance do I need to insure I am not banging my head? Though sometimes I enjoy it. RED
  14. Brand new in the box Berts 8' rigger board, includes riser's, QTY (2) 6" tracks and end caps. Just purchased and may be to much for my 18' Starcraft. The extrusion is some heavy sh*t so shipping may be difficult. I am in Rochester so PM me if you have interest. Prefer to trade for Berts or Traxstech track and accessories. Link to this item is below http://www.shopatron.com/product/part_n ... 2962/646.0 Thank you! RED
