  1. Thanks, I bought that one out at the Oak but not in Mag size as they didn't have
  2. Can you elaborate on the spoons that have been working? I'm heading up for a 9 day trip out of Fairhaven and my Spoon program was poor on last trip. My favs didn't produce such as: Sea Sick Waddler, Carbon 14, Orange Tux, Black Ice, 42nd, NBK., Mongolian Meat!.
  3. I had to buy two of these to ensure I had one for my next fish trip because the 1st seller drug his feet for a week and I didn't trust that it would make it to me on time. The best price I am seeing is $139.99 plus tax on the web right now. Mine is here and now. I am down near Binghamton, NY in Owego,NY 13827 , "NOT OSWEGO"! This can be picked up there thru 22Aug. After that I can bring to Fairhaven 23Aug "after 6PM on 23rd" to Labor Day. I can even deliver to Fairhaven boat Launch 5:15 am 24Aug for the FH Challenge. Can call or txt. 6 oh 7 - For to 9 - Ate 7 7 oh
  4. I got some rugged ones from ski doo. $.75 - $1. a pc. If it were mine, I would most likely pull floor to investigate and then during fix use solid bucked rivets that are cheap and better. My fiend bought a car wrecked Aluin boat cheap and we put a flush patch with internal doublers 18 in wide x 3.5 ft up front in the compound curve area . Came out choice. No one could even tell unless we pointed it out to them and showed them the extra rows of rivets that caught the doublers.
  5. I'm an aircraft mechanic by trade and Alumin. sheet metal repairs are very common on aircraft do to corrosion. Especially bellies of aircraft near the bathrooms. Sheet metal is fun to do depending on your damage you could possibly get away with a bonded and blind riveted "Scab"patch from the outside or a solid bucked rivet scab patch or you may have to pull floor to assess and repair/ strengthen internal structure once you read how to do it and buy or borrow a few specialty tools it might be a DIY!
  6. Thanks for the reply and for the advise you provide for many fisherman. Will be traveling your way tomorrow to start my 9 day fish/camp trip. Good luck on on all your upcoming trips!
  7. I'm curious how often you have caught big boys on spoons up higher, such as the one you caught on UV Yellowtail 45down. I have had 2 big ones, #30&32lb.mid day hit slider spoons up high while those spoons were targeting Steels. I also had another 29lner hit a diver on deployment at 45ft out. All mid day while targeting temperature much deeper. Sometimes it makes me wonder if they learned an easy meal might trail behind the prop wash from big ships.
  8. I did a full restoration on my GLS in 99 and the 1st thing it did was sink, do to cracked line from live well line that runs from transom. If yours has one, plug the intake and outlet ports in transom and see if leak goes away. I put new lines in mine and was good to go but never use live well. Being it's up front it sloshes around to mush in heavy seas and splashes out on to the deck to much.
  9. I don't quite understand what you are saying in above quote. Can you clarify please? Also want to be sure people are talking about the correct reel when they say they did this or that. All please designate exactly what reel you are taliking about as this thread started by a guy wanting info on DIAWA GL47LC which is Great Lakes 47 size Line counter Sealine model. There are later SG47LC sealines and non sealine all close but the GL47 LC is the one that Tuna guy quit selling carbon drag kits for . Thanks all.
  10. I to want to redo the drags in some more of my great lakes 47 reels. Here is a pic. I took 3 years ago when I bought 4 kits to do 4 reels. I can't quite make out the # in the corner but I'd like more as well. They worked great for me. I think I might try calling dRAGMASTERS THEMSELVES if I get a #
  11. I'm totally with Bottom Dollar on ACX plywood. Marine plywood has no voids internally and is really needed when doing structural stuff. ACX has one great side to glue to, is made with exterior glue and is made for exterior and will be perfectly strong enough.
  12. I used what cabelas sold to glue down the vinyl. I almost forgot this note. My boat sunk in shallow water right after I redid it because the live well line was cracked. Do'nt put in what Seanymth put in which was corrigated junk. Back in 99 the stuff I used was called below water line hose and back then was $3.00/ft. It can take freezing and thaw.
  13. This 7.5 80ish kicker will run 13.5 hours plus on less than 3.5 gal gas if you have interest in a kicker
