  1. That boat is a 1984 from the way it looks, there is a tag on the back, right side on the transom that should have an 84, 85 or 86 in the number. Likewise from the pictures it looks like it is a 21 ft-you should measure it if you haven't already, just looks longer than 18 to me. The Blue Fin Royal Line first year I think was 1984-I know it was not 1980. That information should help you sell it.
  2. Woman walking dog shot by " hunter "

    The community is a tight knit community, she was well known in it and by all accounts was one of those people with a heart of gold. He only lived a couple blocks away from her and the families know each other. It was dark when he shot at what he thought was a target that was at least 200 yards away. Again very said and the only thing that could come out of it is a teaching moment for all of us to think before we act.
  3. Woman walking dog shot by " hunter "

    If it is the one that was shot Thanksgiving eve in Sherman NY, she passed away on the way to the hospital. The hunter has been charged with criminally negligent homicide. Sad situation and stupid. It was 45 minutes after sunset.
  4. 1992 galaxy 21 ft worth buying?

    Galaxy was a cheap boat back in its day, I would not be surprised if you found structural issues. If you are getting it for hundreds, that trailer is worth more than that.
  5. Kicker motor questions

    the 9.9 pro kicker should handle the Cobia no problem. Had a regular 9.9 push the 23 Grady Gulfstream(the wide one) all over the lake with no issues.
  6. Registering a home made trailer

    As above in NYS the most important thing is the certified weight slip and then an appropriate amount of receipts so they can get their sales tax cut.
  7. Trailering an oversized boat?

    And make sure all lighting is in place and working like it should, a plate is secured and visible on the trailer etc.
  8. Dunkirk, NY Fishing

    For those that don't know, the power plant is currently mothballed. The harbor now freezes so if you haven't fished it in winter for a couple years, save yourself a surprise.
  9. Kicker motor questions

    Go look for a 15 hp, and connect them.
  10. Hydofoil

    Had one on a 17 ft StarCraft-boat was up on plane at less than 15 mph. Yes they work.
  11. The population of the state(at least the upstate) has dropped over the past 40 years. Broken up homes. Anti-fishing and hunting groups. General trend away from outdoor activities. The decline of interest in it started 25 or 30 years ago, now we are seeing the result.
  12. Tow vehicle ramble

    Hope it works out well for you being right at the towing capacity of the Highlander.
  13. I have owned Mercury four strokes and just this summer an Evinrude E-Tec. I would choose the E-tec or at least give it strong consideration in your decision making.
  14. The Grumman 17 or 5.0 was a wide body, a very wide boat for its size given that era or even now. Made in the mid to late 80's I believe, center console, side console, I don't know if they ever did the walk through. Then came the 16, which was conventional and led to a later 18. Then OMC bought them up and slid the Sea Nymph into both the Lowe and Grumman lines, for the 17 and 19 footers.
