  1. Sea nymph help

    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.
  2. Sea nymph help

    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.

    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
  4. Sea nymph help

    Did mine in 99 with Marine plywood and Cabelas vinyl flooring and their glue. Vinyl has been awesome and I have dumped hundreds of 5 gal pails of water over it rinsing blood. It has held up well. My floors are now soft though and will need redone.Lessons learned. Don't buy marine plywood, exterior grade will do fine. My floors are going bad along the edges so I'd say buy the best sealant, seal the perimeter and apply a 90 degree moulding while sealant is wet. Make it so all water must run to the bilge. Here's my layout. I run 1 120 cooler for fish and another for food up front. Live well is wasted. Note in the fish pic. the sheetmetal support I put in to tie the gunnel on the starboard side below the starboard rigger to help spread the load of that 5 ft boom and 12 lb cannon ball in to the interior sheatmetal work . My mom and I also recovered those white blue grey hip bump pads with cablelas vinyl.
  5. Tight lipped perch on seneca?

    I got 3 sat. Saw guys hunt them with a camera hanging over the side then the anchor locked with a troll motor and picked away at them very slowly finesse fishing Sent from my Moto G Play using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I hang all my fish over the side and gut them before they go in to the fish cooler. Mainly to make filleting on newspapers at camp cleaner. I have ropes with 2 loops to help facilitate this. Sent from my Moto G Play using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. You can cut the belly meat away first which reduces the the length knife you need Sent from my Moto G Play using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. Back on here to say thanks to Tom Allen for his last post. His info broke my 3 day skunk out of Fairhaven. I went out yesterday after the blow, slowed things down to 2.0 , scored a nice Coho and king on my 50* rigger at 85dwn over 115 on Big fin pulled by an old Pro troll green with no echip and also popped a nice king on a Green/yellow Jplug behind a mag diver on 1.5 out 185 . The 3rd fish came about 5 min. after sunset.Today dropped one on a green/glow jplug on the middle high rigger and dropped another on the diver/ grn/yel j set up with no other bites
  11. Mon. did 4 for 4 out of Fairhaven then 3 skunked days in a row. blown off today. I even fought the seas Thurs. and didn't see another boat out. Hopefully get out this afternoon. Mon. Big laker hit the small veggie spoon mupped down the middle on my high rigger Aprox. 54* water. 2 hit a Green UV Big wienie fly modded with an Atomik Chip harness behind NBK Pro E. on a Mag diver 1.5 setting 185 out. The other King came off White crush with a wht/silver Atomik fly off my middle rigger in 50* water. Fish pics are all from Mon. Only.
  12. What kicker motor has the best charging system?

    My spare batt is just in a battery box in the corner with leads ran to connect it in parallel if needed.
  13. What kicker motor has the best charging system?

    I run a 1980's 7.5 Honda with little to no charging at troll speeds. Run 3 riggers, GPs, Fishhawk, Sonar,& Troll King.. With a reg. starting battery it fishes all day and still has enough amps left in it to fire up the 88hp OB. I do carry a spare Group[ 27 deep cycle as a reserve just in case. The only fall out is my sonar will start not marking bottom in 500FOW+. So a good used 4stroke and an extrza $100 deep cycle battery gets my vote. Plus it's good to have a 2nd battery anyways just in case!
