  1. Ditto to Big Spoon , proper care, bleed them ice them, trim them are all key points. I use a brine that you can find called sweet Oregon salmon smoke, alder is my preferred wood and smoke more to the dry side. Try it, it is worth keeping a couple now and then.
  2. i thought it was an R&R as well, I had some early pirate spoons that were hammered and light like that. I will look at my old collection tonight to see if I have it.
  3. Mercury Stainless steel prop with hub for Yamaha F 200 Outboard. Brand new in box. Asking $ 300.00
  4. Still Fishin for a 15 -17 Montauk. I've seen a lot out there on the websites, dealt with some scammers. just thought I'd drop another line out there.
  5. I had a guy a couple of years ago send me a fedex priority letter with a bank check for 4000 more than the asking price and threatened me because I refused to accept the fed ex delivery of the check and give the extra money to the courier coming to pick up the merchandise I had the fed ex delivery person turn it into the Feds.
  6. I did the same thing and saw it the next am again
  7. Came across a recent scam attempt in craigslist which shouldn't surprise anyone. While still looking for an older Boston Whaler Montauk I can across one in Scranton. It is still currently listed by the way. It was listed for $ 2000.00 which seemed too good to be true. That was the first clue. I contacted the seller via phone and left a message stating that I would like to drive down and take a look. She responded with a text stating to provide my email to her and she would have Ebay services call me and set up the viewing ( Second Clue) there is no ebay services that I could see. I sent the email and requested a time I could come and see the boat in Scranton. She responded that her husband had died, she moved to Omaha Nebraska and that the boat was currently stored in an Ebay warehouse # 11 in Omaha Nebraska ( seriously I cant make this stuff up.) I contacted ebay and there is no warehouse that they are affiliated with in Omaha. So I just wanted to post this just in case someone else gets a similar story. When I put this out on the internet I got a number of people confirming this was a common scam technique. Still looking for that older Boston Whaler but you have to be careful out there. I have never had a problem on this website and have sold and purchased many items all with good experiences. I guess it speaks to the character and integrity of this people here. Thanks to all for listening. Regards, Bill Wike
  8. Anyone with experience with bow mount trolling motors on larger glass boats like GW Gulfstreams. I'm looking at the Terrova Rriptide in the 112 lb, 72 inch model. It appears that the bow to the water is about 45 to 50 inches. Calm day probably okay, any winds and waves probably not. Worked great on starcraft 210 but not so sure on glass boat. if someone has similar experience , please share.
  9. I echo all of the above. My first LakeO boat was a 212 and served me well for a number of years. A good follow up survey of the repairs that have already been done, a floor and deck check and the above prescribed engine checks and you should be good to go. Good luck.
  10. Are you talking diet to Cisco. Do you have their contact info.? Thanks
  11. Thanks to all. I figured most would advise Cisco. Did you also purchase the additional rail attached pulley system or just run off the reels high on the tower.
