    Persistence - Tiara 33 Open
  1. Motors literally ran like new, super smooth - fuel consumption dropped by about 5 gallons per trip over the course of the year - I keep track of every gallon that goes in and divide by the number of hours on the hour meters each year. Over the course of the year about a 15% savings on fuel - I ran almost 2000 gallons of fuel through it last summer so will pay for itself in due time. Hotter spark so was able to lean it out a bit. Wasn't the cheapest upgrade, a little over a grand in parts, but definitely worth it in my opinion. http://www.michiganmotorz.com/delco-voyager-marine-electronic-distributor-p-142.html
  2. I upgraded to a set of Delco EST's last year and it was unbelievable the difference it made. The motors after the retrofit almost had a new attitude and were so much smoother. In addition, at the time we did this we also advanced the timing slightly to get smoother performance at idle because 95% of our hours on the motors are spent trolling.
  3. F11s work too. Agree with the jointed comment above. Also have had great luck on the Dave's Kabooms. which are getting a little harder to find.
  4. We got a couple out of Oswego last season - here is the best one....
  5. Out of Oswego for a brown trout trip I would suggest the following three outfits: Primetime SportFishing - Capt. Pete Lahosky 1-610-442-4572 Kingfisher Charters - Capt. Jon Wilbur 1-860-671-1462 Thunderstruck Sportfishing - Capt. Mark Bukowski 1-413-627-9081 All three of these guys run top notch professional charters with large meticulously maintained boats, are hands down some of the best brown trout fisherman on the lake, if not THE best, and use top notch equipment. If I had to choose who to fish with for brown trout it would no doubt be one of these guys.
  6. Good amount of people early - I sold about $1200 worth of stuff. Had some stuff I thought was a deal that would go immediately and no one picked it up - other stuff I thought I had a little overpriced and people might haggle and was swiped with no questions asked - overall was nice to clear some stuff out and then listen to Pete, Mark, and Brian discuss their techniques....
  7. Perchjerk Jim is taking it - sold pending pickup tomorrow....
  8. Prefer local pickup - for $125 I really don't feel like packaging and going to the post office to be honest. If it no one wants local pickup and I decide to ship you can have first dibs....
  9. Post ELOTSA Trolling Lot - take it away Here's some stuff I came home with that I didn't sell - further reduced - don't want to put it away. $125 takes it all. Mostly stuff that has never seen the water. Local pickup in Baldwinsville area (Near Syracuse)
  10. Hahaha - you got me!
  11. I'm owed. Details and amount irrelevant to the conversation, but he never made good on it. I've given up - not worth the time to try and recover my losses.
  12. Awesome - looking forward to it!!!
  13. Need to run them on different frequencies or they will interfere. Some of the CHIRP models can also cause interference with fixed frequency units as the CHIRP waveforms sweep across a frequency range essentially. Another option is just to network the two displays off of one transducer if they are capable.
  14. I had an F-200 and I ran fully synthetic in it (can't remember the weight of the oil it used) but it was close to $10 per quart. Filters are around $15 so it's not that far out of line although I don't think the Yamalube is synthetic. You can run whatever you want in it and probably do an oil change for around half that or even less - I'm not saying you should though. Just because wally world has wolfs head motor oil on sale for $1.99 a quart and you can buy off brand filters to save a few bucks too doesn't mean its a good idea. Bottom line is you have a motor worth around 13K and in all likelihood you probably can't rebuild it yourself it if fails catastrophically - I would run the best filters and best oil you can. Your kicker probably doesn't have a filter - just change oil and again use the good stuff. Lower unit is easy to deal with too - get the correct fitting to pump new lower unit fluid in and it's just as easy as an oil change.
  15. Notice the original poster asked if 500' of 30# copper would fit - my guess is probably. 45# copper - no way.
