  1. I found an old Boat US magazine article about boat sealants and adhesives. 

    The best sealant in your case would be BoatLife, a polysulfide, or 3M 4000 UV, a polyether. 3M 4200 and 5200 are polyurethane construction adhesives and not chemical resistant.

    aluminum boat splashwell needs re sealing, Should I use adhesive type product? Needs to be oil and solvent (gas) compatible. Any recommendation? Removed old caulk and cleaned up with paint thinner.

    There used to be a Pursuit dealer in Port Clinton OH. Should be some used ones around on Lake Erie.  My Pursuit 255 Offshore with a single 250 fishes very nicely on Ontario

    Now a question. What hose does everyone use? i wanted to use a mini auto retrieve reel but havent found one yet. Dont want hose laying all around as i'm limited in space. 

    I use a 15ft RV freshwater hose from Wally Mart. Coils easily on a makeshift hook under the gunnel. And yes the pressure cutoff is mandatory.

    When you have a slide diver on a wire setup, the last 50’ or so are a segment of Mono, flouro, or braid for the slide diver to slide on. What he means is the wire is reeled right up on the spool and the slider segment is “on the rod”, not the wire.

    Ok gotcha. He was talking about storing the rod, not fishing it.  :smile:

  5. Baddad1- Not sure what you mean by getting the wire off the rod.

    Sliders definitely have their day. Storing them on the rod can be a PITA,  especially if you have to break the rod down for storage. I keep a braid setup dedicated for a slider with 30lb fourocarbon double uni-knotted to the braid that the slider clips to.

    Absolutely love high speed reels (30 series) for riggers and divers. Besides the high speed also change the reel handle location on all of my Okuma reels (back hole in the reel handle). I feel this really helps with the torque issue that you experience with high speed.

    Never thought about changing the reel handle location on my high speed Convectors. Gonna give it a try on my wire 30DS reels and see if there’s a noticeable difference. Thanks for the tip

    Indeed! AFC at Bills Stadium would rock. Did you hear that crowd last night? I can't believe that 6,700 people made that much noise. Really got to them in that backup situation at the goal line. 12th man!! Go Bills!

    Browns at Bills for the AFC would actually make me forget this Covid for a day. Go Browns!!!

  9. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Mike for very long. He moved next door to me about 5 yrs ago and we connected immediately. Fishing conversations in his driveway were always an eye opener comparing the Sandy bite with what was happening out of I-Bay. 

    We never got to fish together as I said we would, and I’m going to regret that for a long time. 

    Lynyrd Skynrd’s “Call me the Breeze” is going to be the first song played this spring
