  4. Hi ! Was wondering if anyone used braided line instead of cable for their riggers and if it wouldn't eliminate the voltage problem ? If you do use it ,will it last as long as the cable ? http://www.scotty.com/fishing-gear-equi ... d-line.htm Thanks JT
  5. Trolling out the Genesee at Sun Rise

  9. I think it really depends on how much $$$ you want to spend . Unless your going to buy a combo with a 8" or larger screen I would buy 2 units . I picked up a nice Ray DS500 on sale at Bethel marine and plan on buying a Garmin GPS this spring . I am never a big fan of putting all my eggs in 1 basket , so I like knowing if one unit is going in for service I will still have the other. And I will do it for well under a $1k . On the transducer do you mean setting the puck inside the hull and letting it shoot thur the fiberglass or drilling a hole in the bottom with a hull mounted transducer? The best I believe would be , hull mount , transom mount and then thur the hull . Good Luck !
  10. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family . God Bless ! JT
  11. Jax I had a Starcraft I restored. I painted it with Marine enamel and a small 4" foam roller . It came out like glass, you couldn't tell it wasn't sprayed. Went to PepBoys and bought some pin striping , the boat looked great when it was done . Just be sure to use some aluminum primer on any bare spots. Got the idea from this web site- http://www.sailingworld.com/sailing-gea ... 00727.html (didn't use the brush just the roller) Just a thought! Good Luck ! JT
  12. while you got the motor out it's a good time to check the coupler for wear. http://www.mercstuff.com/page08.htm
  13. I have epoxied a block and it worked great. First you want to drill a small hole at each end of the crack to keep it from spreading . Then grind the crack to get a good clean surface . I even drilled a few 1/8" holes along the center of the crack to force the epoxy into crack to give it more holding power. ( you want to force the epoxy into the crack so it curls into block ) Boat engines don't build up pressure like the closed cooling system in you car. Unless the crack is so bad that the whole piece could fall off I don't think you have much to lose by trying the epoxy. Good Luck JT
  14. Have a couple ??. 1st- I have a dash mounted VHF radio , is it worth the trouble to remove it for the winter with the rest of the electronics ? 2nd- The boat has a wash down pump and a live well pump both connected to a through hull on the bottom of the boat. Will they drain or do I need to get anti freeze in them ? Thanks for any help !! JT

    dumb question

    It sounds like he is saying the top of the outdrive is below the waterline . Don't think it's a bad thing if it is.
  16. * Federal law requires single-hull boats less than 20 feet in length to have a capacity plate. (However, PWC and sailboat manufacturers are not required to attach a capacity plate.) Always follow the recommended capacity found in the owner's manual and on the manufacturer's warning decal. Never exceed these capacity recommendations. * On vessels with no capacity plate, use the following rule of thumb to calculate the number of persons (weighing 150 lbs. each, on average) the vessel can carry safely in good weather conditions. Number of people = vessel length (ft.) x vessel width (ft.) 15 For example, for a vessel 18 feet long by 6 feet wide, the number of persons is 18 times 6 (or 108) divided by 15, which equals seven 150-lb. persons (or a total person weight of 7 x 150, or 1050 lbs.). * On outboard boats, the capacity plate also will display the recommended maximum horsepower rating of the boat. Your boat's motor should never exceed this rating.
