  1. It looks like I can put in my 17 Sea Nymph OK with what is there at the moment, or is it very shallow at the end of fhe short pad there ? Anyone do this ? I gotta go...pushing 80 here and not much in the mood to stay in the driveway ! Thanks, Dave
  2. I love this thread.....especially hearing that so many good guys hate eating the fish. I bet they feel the same way about the caviar and pate'. Life is goooood !
  3. The older I get , the more I wish for a longer season....just don't enjoy 3 days in a row. I had a beagle named SUSHI, and she retrieved bunnies from deep in the thorns. God, I miss that girl.
  4. Good morning Rol-man......I prepare a product known as Gravlox which is a Scandinavian version. I usually bring it to a Holiday party especially New Years. It is really an easy prep, and the next time I get to it, I'll have you here to see. Or you can see the recipe on page 17 in the Silver Palette Cookbook ( ? edition ). I use Wegman's salmon fillets about 5 pounds total cut from the center section for good fit. They say serve with Vodka or the better matched Aquavit , both nice but a little tough at breakfast. ROL, do it for the upcoming Holidays and they will not forget you ! I am close by , so let me know how she goes. Have fun Dave
  5. WOW, Speedy.....would you tell what bow and scope you used. Pushing 80 here and time for a change to something a little quieter. Thanks, WOW Dave

    Trailer sway

    WOW...even from the pic....Looks like a TRAGEDY ready to go ! I would bet you are way too light on tongue weight. I would go to a truck weigh station and see what your boat with all your gear with gas weighs. Then determine the correct tongue weight for this load. Then make sure the wheel/tire capacity is correct for the boat as loaded . If all ok, then I bet you will have to move the boat up the trailer. If you can, move the winch up enough to get the rear overhang down....way too much for my comfort even as regards your transom support, though just a guess. Boy, I'd feel great to see your adjustments later ! Good luck.
  7. Marine ply is for me...what thickness did you use. You are doing really good work. Dave
  8. Well, Champ......looking at those two bambies, I think you may have at least come close to getting your perfect doe much earlier. Wow, many memorable time ahead ! Christmas gift...ya-ah

    plywood bottom

    Retired antique canoe restorer needs a 3/8" plywood bottom refinished on a 14' Showboat . Custom designed and built by me in 1960. would appreciate knowing of someone in the FLA who is " show Minded " to do the work. I can do it , but a little worn these days. Thanks for any recommendation. Dave
  10. Well, we just saved the life of one expensive stand wrapped in a vest ! I remember still hunting in the Hi-Tor woods and maybe 100 yards out, saw brown movement with a white patch kinda flicking around the brown. I was just under a ridge mainly focused on the flat below, and peeking over the ridge every so often just because. With an open peep I really couldn't confirm, so just stayed alert. As I went further on and over the ridge closer to the brown patch, you might guess what the deer really was. Yes, a hunter with no orange anything, wiping his nose with a white hanky, in a stand that was placed just low enough, over another little ridge so all I could see was his imitating a deer with an itchy tail. This happened almost 40 years ago, and I feel just like PAP remembers. WOW ! My dad always said consider the what if ??? and much later I learned about FMA ( failure mode analysis ) There ya go....that was one lucky Dude ! Stay safe .
  11. I'm still using my 336 marlin i bought in 64 in nashua nh just married.............and she pointed it out for my first deer....she downed many more as time has passed . Love this time of year !!
  12. where is L & M in Monroe County.please ? can't find them... Thanks anyone.
  13. I corn the necks and treat like a New England boiled dinner ( corned beef ), pick off the meat for sandwiches , hash or go for the dinner. Sometimes just nice to have a carafe of beer and good friends around and pick around the bones by the fire.
  14. Mr. Dane...found the probe and can't get the test light to blink when the unit is in the on position......so will probably talk with the factory Monday. Sorry, I can't help at the moment. I do have some other things to move out. You are so nearby, I thought I would mention it. i will advise on the probe malady. Thanks , Dave
  15. OK, see what I can do.
