  1. That is true until the one time that you forget to raise it before you take off and you subsequently ruin it. I think that a 16 footer that trolls should have a little kicker,not bags or trollplates
  2. I-Boats has a lot of very good cover sales going on now. As for me, I'm a firm believer in tarps.
  3. Yesterday I was given a big slab of Russian style cured salmon. It’s better than any smoked salmon than I have ever eaten. Does anyone here cure their salmon instead of smoking it? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Sorry to hear that. On the bright side, You now have a challenging winter project with the additional chance to make her better than she was before.
  5. It depends on the distance between the battery and the starter and if you have a solenoid in the system. A 9.9 starter does not draw a lot of power, so 4 or 6 gauge is probably overdoing it a lot, but your best information is available in the service manual of your specific model. I would google up the service manual of the specific model and check out the specs. There are other things to consider as well like what sort of wire, single or multi stranded. Multi stranded is a lot more flexible. Anyway, according to Mercury, for outboards from 6 to 10 hp ,a maximum 9 foot length needs 8 gauge and 4 to 5 feet works with 10 gauge. 10 foot would be 6 gauge.

  8. He is one of the moderators on this forum. He goes by L&M. He is in Port Bay (Wolcott NY)about 2 hours east of Buffalo, so that puts you at about 4 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. The guy at Fish307 told me that the motor on the mag 15 is very powerful and very often if you try to stop it by pushing down on the button for just a split second you will not have stopped the momentum and the motor will come right back on the moment you release the button and it will continue going up. His advice is to hold the the button down for the time that it will take you to say "one two" fairly quick (half a second?). that should stop the motor without starting it downward again. He also told me not to use a dedicated battery because a closed circuit away from the boat engine /ground will neutralize the positive ion stop.

  12. Thank you. I called them and they told me how to fix the problem. They will have my business from now on. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. A few years ago, I purchased a set of Mag 15 downriggers on e-bay which according to the seller had been refurbished. I have been using them ever since,but there is this strange thing that happens to both the riggers. When I try to adjust depth by raising the rigger a few feet, They just keep on coming up and the only way to stop this is by switching to down again. There does not seem to be any way to stop the rigger from going up except by switching it to going down and then stopping it. Is this the case with all mag 15s or do I have a circuit board problem? Thank you for any help or advice you can offer. Cornelis
