  1. Engine hours 2,300 on one and 2,000 on the other. Yes, professionally serviced. I kept records of all service since I bought it. No survey since I've owned it. Very solid transom. Super clean, dry & spotless. Reason for selling: No family around to enjoy it with me anymore. No plans for another power boat. Probably will go back to the kayak.
  2. Last chance to see this boat until spring. She's going to be winterized this week. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yes, Whaler1, it is a nice boat. It's the wrong time of year to sell. I thought if I priced it this low, it might sell before winter. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. 2018 winterization and storage has been paid for. I will leave it in the water for another week or two. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Asking $19,000 Planer boards are included. I don't intend to sell rods, reels, etc., but will consider.
  6. This fishing machine will be shrink wrapped and winterized soon. It's still in the water.. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Fishing platform

    My Weekender is 10'-6" wide. It handles rough water quite well. But, since the deck is more than a foot above water level, you definitely rock around when trolling perpendicular to the waves. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Fishing platform

    I have a 1991 Sea Ray 280 Weekender. It was already set up for trolling when I bought it. The downriggers are mounted on pedestal mounts, probably since the gunwals are somewhat narrow. It is a nice trolling platform. Hopefully this gives you some ideas. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. A friend and his son joined me for a morning trip out of Bald Eagle Marina Tuesday. We got a late start as they overslept. We went 12 for 16, mostly small kings. After losing a couple of majors to a straightened hook and a broken swivel, I decided to take the next big one myself. It took over 15 minutes to land a great king. She weighed 32lb 4oz on the marina's scale. Next year I should probably get in the tournament... Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    5.7 Mercruiser Surging at high RPM

    That happened to me one time. It was a loose battery terminal. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Trolling advice

    I used flush-mounted rod holders behind my seat to reduce the torque on the kayak. When the drag starts clicking, you know one is on. I never tried for walleyes. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Trolling advice

    I used to troll Lake Ontario for salmon and trout. I would normally only troll one rod at a time. Too much risk of tangles if a fish gets on. My method was to drag a magnum dipsy diver on the 0 setting. That allowed me to fish up to 100' down. If the fish were 50' or shallower, I preferred to drag a lead core because it doesn't produce the heavy resistance that a dipsy does. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
