  1. I think that is a self etching primer. As long as it,s suitable for aluminum I don't see a problem
  2. As a body shop owner for the last 28 years I,ll give my 2 cents, just an opinion for what it,s worth. 1) painting your boat does not put you in violation of voc laws,but you have to dispose of leftovers properly.2) I think 60 grit on an orbital is a bit rough.primer and paint probably won't fill the hook marks left. I would run over it with 180 as a final sand.3) rolling on rustoleum should work and since it,s a slow drying enamel you could roll a section then tip it with a quality brush( go over it lightly to remove air bubbles and smooth the finish) the fine brush marks will flow out , a little thinner on the brush helps. If you need anything just pm me, always glad to help a fellow LOU member.
  3. If I didn't,t already have them I would probably opt for boards over riggers but I have never found them to be a pita.Plus it lets me fly the American flag higher on Memorial Day.
  4. That makes sense.the boards are probably easier.on Oneida they make more sense because the mini divers don,t track to the side and the riggers give me better seperation
  5. No problem ,my mistake, I'm trying to figure out if the out rigger clips will hold full size divers. It adds 2 lines to the spread.on Oneida a full spread is downriggers, 2 mini dipsys off outriggers and 4 boards, would like to do the same on Ontario with 2 more divers of the side.
  6. X2....3 downriggers plus issue
  7. Sorry, I meant outriggers, I assume you mean downriggers because I don't think black,s will fit on the outrigger line.
  8. On Oneida I run mini dipsys off the riggers and some days it,s the hot rod. Is any one using this setup on lake O and if so what release to hold the diver?
  9. Thanks guys. Just tried a double uni and it seems like it,s gonna do the job. I appreciate the feedback.
  10. I'm trying the new ultra thin micro lead and realizing that it is too thin to use a Willis knot to join it to the mono. The mono won't go into the sheath. Anyone have a suggestion for a good smooth knot?
  11. I would like to thank Norm(big blue) for taking the time to copy and mail out his copy of the original instruction manual for the digitroll conversions. This is why I love the LOU community and encourage anyone to join . It,s worth every penny and how it maintains this excellent site.
  12. Thanks for all the information guys. The reason I pulled them out was because after years on Oneida I,m moving the boat back to Ontario next year . I decided to upgrade to new riggers. So the question is who wants to buy some vintage riggers with slow speed retrieve for better depth control and lightweight ball capacity for added blowback for those boat wary fish. Make me an offer.
  13. Trophy 2860. All I had to replace was stringers, transom, engine, outdrive, electronics , upholstery and paint. Other than that it was ready to go. Lol
  14. Ok. Now I'm confused again. Maybe they are a version of mag 10s. All I'm trying to figure out is the cycle function. Can anyone tell me how it sets?thanks
