  1. I wish them much success. Very difficult to survive in the world of the internet.

    Sold / Closed 1992 Crestliner Sabre

    I am not the owner, that is a two stroke out board. Owner has it posted on other sites, it is in Port Allegany PA
  3. On boats that size over the years I have seen 20-25 hp.
  4. When those 19 Sea Nymphs were sold new there were a lot of packages that had the 70 hp on it, instead of the 90. Boat was slow with that. The Crestliner will be proportionally slow with the 90 vs the 115 but if you are fishing solo a lot, that lightens obviously what is being pushed through the water. I had a 19 Sea Nymph that I put a 90hp four stroke on, so I know the boat. The Crestliner weighs more plus improvements over the years will make it ride better than the Sea Nymph. I have liked the Commander since they first introduced it several years ago, so I say if the deal can be made-go for it.
  5. Dawson Creek-whoever is the legislative body in your particular county. Could be called county legislator or board of supervisors. Your address will have someone representing you. Usually you can go the county website and get that information. I would wait til after 1/1/22 to make sure new reps weren't voted in and to make sure the site has been updated.
  6. I had those symptoms when I got the second shot last spring for 24 hours.
  7. Automakers want to move to full electric by 2030 or 2035, that is going from around 2% of all sales to 100%. I read the articles about taking an electric car across country now and the related issues. There were electric cars produced 100 years ago, before the internal combustion engine took the market. In my mind and being a car nut, the new F150 Lightning electric appears on the streets in 2022. An electric model of the most popular vehicle sales wise year end and year out. That to me has the potential of being a game changer. When the auto was first invented, there were a lot of companies trying for that market. There are more than a handful now trying to grasp the electric market. We will see how things unfold because the issue still is the batteries how much range, how to dispose etc. Read also the news clippings about containing a car fire in an electric car-thousands of gallons of water. We are headed in an electric direction, I just don't see clarity on the pathway yet.
  8. There are still Lone Stars of various sizes out there. Lone Star was bought by Chrysler in the late 1960's and became part of its boat group.
  9. The political corruption goes back to Liberal Republican Nelson Rockefeller in the early 60s and probably before that. Control of the Governors office and Assembly and Senate since 2020 for the first time in decades. Kathy Hochel moved from the center to the left when she became Lt. Governor, one woman or one man can not fix the ills oF Albany as a solo effort and that is the sad reality.
  10. I have trolled with multiple outboards going back to the 2 strokes of the early 80's. Evinrude and Mercury 115hp. With no issues. Where you will have problems is expecting it to idle at 700-800 rpms all day, that is just asking for it to load up so you want to be able to bump up your speed using a bag or whatever. I can remember being told decades ago by a Mercury dealer about the guy who trolled hundreds of hours per year trolling with a 115 straight six Mercury successfully. I also can concur with the discussion about the small kicker for trolling and as a back up. At the end of the day, everything boils down to $$$ and what you are comfortable with.
