  1. Went through once, that’s enough.
  2. Long way to go for a deal on a boat how about some feelings from other members. My son wants to go look at it
  3. One more and I’ll quit ****ing! While camping at a local campsite with my wife we were lucky enough to get the campsite right directly across the boat launch. Some of the things you see these people do it was totally amazing And frightening. Also where we were was right at the 5 mile an hour speed limit and no wake zone bouy. We watched people coming in from the lake , out of seven days at the campsite I saw three people that actually obeyed the bouy out of probably 50 or 60 boats One guy actually came in with a tri-Toon pulling a kid on a tube at planning speed right past the 5 mile an hour speed limit. Like my son says you can’t fix stupid.
  4. One thing that scares me is diving your 30 feet underwater and somebody comes up right over the top of you and when you come up to ask them what’s going on they say oh I just was curious what the flag was.
  5. What’s going on with boaters out on the lake? Out on Cayuga today probably 5 other boats out here an 2 of them run wide open within 25-30’ of us while we’re trolling. Not just that but it seems like people are losing consideration for others. Maybe because I’m older or is it just me?
  6. Thanks haven’t been on Cayuga in 2 years thought I’d give it a try.
  7. Fishing with my son and grandkids tomorrow any reports on Cayuga. Fishing out of Long point thanks tim
  8. Anybody been out on Cayuga lately? Taking my son and my grandkids to Cayuga 8-23 wondering if I can get any reports? Going out of Long point.
  9. Didn’t know where to post this so it seem like a decent spot. Just got back from a trip to Punta Cana with the kids and the grandkids. Went fishing on a boat called gone fishing he has five or seven boats that go out. Never saw a mate work so hard and I fished everywhere all around the states. We weren’t out 15 minutes and had three mahi-mahi on different lines. The day continued with more Quite a few more Mahi lost count on barracuda a nice white marlin brought to the boat after It got done tail walking for 20 minutes. And had a huge blue marlin on for about 10 minutes before we lost it. Huge blue marlin raised up towards the back of the boat and hit one of the rods so hard it shattered 1000 pounds swivel. Can’t recommend these guys enough if you ever go to Dominican republic Punta Cana look up gone fishing. My son and I had a fantastic time.
  10. I have 2 , 2 1/2 horse outboard for sale or trade. 2 1/2 horse Evinrude 2 1/2 horse Johnson from the mid-50s and 1, 35 horse from the mid-50s. Anyone interested?
  11. four of us fish the Kenai river in Alaska a couple of summers ago. Three guys caught kings I was the only one didn’t catch a fish. Packed a banana in my lunch bag by mistake.
  12. The last boat I had had a mast on the front but it was threaded so you could add extensions and raise it up
  13. I made a set out of pvc that fit over two of the rod holders on the arch on my Islander and turn outward with pulleys on the ends. I’ll try to get time and put them on and get a pic if you want
  14. I did the dowels sealant and paint, worked great.
  15. My daughter got me a suit for Christmas 30 foot long self-adhesive backing programmable for probably 20 different colors works fantastic
  16. I don’t know if the app has changed or if I have problems with the app. If I look at anything on the forum way down the list when I’m finished reading that and want to go to the next one it automatically takes me back to the beginning. And I have to start all over searching again. Is this normal or do I have a problem with the app? I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it does the same thing.
  17. I talked to a guy once who had an islander. He bought the water bag that they use in wakeboard boats. He could pump 200 gallons of water into the front bag To hold the nose of the boat down and regulate the amount of water in the bag as needed.
  18. That would be great but like you said that’s way too far away from Albany New York area
  19. Looking for a tandem axle trailer for my 19’ Islander. I have a good single axle but would like the stability and safety of a tandem axle. Any ideas where to get one?
  20. Redid everything on the Islander. Lower unit motor carburetor interior upholstery. Keeping it love the boat. Would love to find a tandem trailer for it.And you’re right rolmops, I live near, and fish Sacandaga quite a bit, it can get snotty .
  21. I had a trolling motor on it took it off more of a pain then it was worth with the ez steer. My Islander will go down to 1.5 mph On its own and charge the batteries great. What I’d like to have the trolling motor for is for spot lock.
  22. Anyone ever mount an electric trolling motor on an Islander? Looking at a minn kota Ulterra with spot lock and self deploy for perch and lakers.
