  1. If they are refillable batteries that need water checked periodically, remove them to the garage, I’ve suffered dry cells over winter with the charger on maintain. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  3. You’re probably too young to remember the Baker climbers, they would fall out from under you if you stood too close to a tree with slick bark, real treat, also had a TSS stand actually collapse climbing a wide tree. It’s a wonder I didn’t get hurt with that junk. You can’t beat the climbing sticks and a hang on, my preference for today’s tree hunting. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Spray some fogger down the air intake, stall the motor, pull the plugs and spray fogger in cylinders, turn over once, replace plugs and wires. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United Warm it up first.
  5. We all had to sign a waiver releasing the owner of all liability if we wanted the last 6 weeks. Basically he had all the bases covered. My opinion was they had all intentions of keeping it closed until the regulars saw all the other marinas open for weeks. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Need to clear up my situation, I’m in a private community with their own slips in a stoned off area, excluded from public use and rentals, paid in advance. The slips were under water till mid summer but didn’t open until the first week of sept, when down the road they were open a full month already. They only needed to be pressure washed, no damage from wind and waves. I’m new there this year, some of the regulars pressured the owner for some use before the season closed, they finally opened in September. I used my slip for 13 days.

  7. I'm curious how many boaters received a refunded slip fee for the shortened 2017 season. We lost 70 percent of the season and no roll over or refund was granted, docks just got submerged, not damaged. I'm really hesitant to start payments next month for fear of a similar fate.

  9. I read a story on GLAngler mag I believe the editor went in the water when the boat he was in took a swell over the transom , then it couldn't drain fast enough and took another, boat sank in a hurry and they were in the water quick . Dave Mull and 3 others were in the water for 3-4 hours. A fouled prop started the chain reaction, too much weight at the stern trying to clear the prop, a couple swells and down she went, 18 ft boat. The story is on the web, no adults wearing vest, one child did have his on. Coast guard had too search for 2 of the 4. Lucky it was summer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  16. Wow, hard to imagine how the home owners feel about that, sandbagged waterfront homes got hammered last weekend at cape Vincent, level is the same it was 9 days ago. They reworked the road out to Tibbets point light house, stones thrown into the road from high wave action last weekend .Sounds like a clown show managing water levels.

  17. Proud pop pop, always nice when the little guys visit. Good stuff Kevin.[emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. Cracking in corners of splashwell is an indicator of rot. Stand on the outboard and try to flex it. My water entered under the transom cap, removed wood and poured sea cast, also ran 2 3/8 rods through the motor mounting holes and the back seat panel, cap was then sealed with caulk.
