  2. Just wanted to send out a huge thank you to Hank at L&M, recently had the pleasure of having my boat worked on by Hank and he really came thru for me and my family. He fixed numerous problems and we were able to use the boat on vacation for the first time in years. The boat ran great with no issues. I agree wholeheartedly with everyone else that he is the go to guy. Thanks again Hank Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Thanks to all who responded to my question, sounds like Hank from L & M is the way to go. This is a great site with a vast wealth of information and an even better is the members who are willing to lend their knowledge and expertise.

  7. I have a 305 mercruiser/gm 230 hp with a Rochester 4 bbl quadrajet and have been having issues with it for the past couple seasons. I did rebuild it last season early on but still having problems. I can't really pinpoint the exact problem but typically it starts and runs fine till you shut down then it's extremely tough to get started again. I guess my question is should I consider swapping the carb to a new one or take it to someone and have it gone through by someone who truly knows what they are doing? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I just want it to run well and start when I want it to not when it wants to. Again thanks in advance for any input.

  8. Thanks for the tips, hope to try again this weekend , is hemlock the same or any better in your opinion?
  9. Made it out late sat afternoon till dark, got skunked although my daughter caught a couple nice bluegill on a worm. Water temp was really warm did mark some fish sitting tight on the bottom at the deepest part of the lake( Canadice ) tried jigging them and dragged spoons and flasher/ fly but no takers. Nice night on the water though except for the bugs
  10. Thanks for the hints, will look into that, has anyone heard of putting some sort of plastic slide someone once told me about rain gutter over the bunk then the boat slides on the plastic?
  11. I recently purchased an old 14' aluminum boat to be able to get on the water quicker and easier than getting my bigger boat ready and all that. Took its maiden voyage last weekend and had a hard time getting it on the trailer. Trailer has carpet bunks and the boat did not slide on well. I realize water levels are low and was unable to get the trailer deep enough without the truck being half in the water, any ideas or recommendations would be greatly appreciated
  12. I was thinking of trying Canadice or Hemlock Saturday afternoon or early evening for lake trout and bass anybody have any recent info or advice?
  13. Thanks for your response, I will look at the choke linkage as soon as it is light and try the adjustment. Although tonight when I was running with the muffs it seams like it is sucking to much air, it seems to smooth out when you manually close the choke plate some and the air sucking noise diminishes.it seems to restrict the air flow when you install the flame arrester,but if you shut it down it will not restart until it cools down and the choke plate is closed again.input from anyone is greatly appreciated as I am really anxious to be on the water!
  14. I am having some issues with a 1986 mercruiser mcm230 gm 5.0 with the Rochester quadrajet carb. It starts okay when cold as choke plate is closed but as it warms up and the plate opens it seems to be sucking a lot of air. It has the manifold choke. Once running seems fine until you shut it down, then it won't restart without a lot of swearing and fiddling with the choke plate. I'm guessing that it is time to rebuild it but will that really affect the choke issue? If anyone has any ideas or has had a similar issue Please enlighten me as how to proceed. Believe it or not I am just getting around to getting on the water for the first time this year and would like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. Due to money issues taking it to someone is out so if anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks Jcritt1
  15. Thanks for the info, maybe an afternoon trip to keuka
  16. Does anyone know what the water level situation is at the dec launch in woodville ( south end ) I had heard it was real shallow and hard to load and unload awhile ago, has it improved? 20' boat and 2 wheel drive truck, not sure I want to risk it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Guys, Thanks for the info, I am really getting the bug to get out there and give it a try. The help you can get on this site is the best and the fact that so many are willing to teach others and share their knowledge is what its all about. THANKS AGAIN
  18. Can anyone show me a picture of what people are using? Also where to find them? Been reading a bit about this tactic and want to try but am unsure of exactly what people are using. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  19. Very nice, pics show what is all about! [ Post made via iPod ]
  20. Thanks guys, I've had the boat about 4 years,runs great (knock on wood) seems to have plenty of power and doesn't bog down at all just doesn't seem to want to get moving. I guess it has always been like this although primarily trolling and just putting to where I start trolling it has never really bothered me too bad. Although now my kids are getting old enough to ski and tube and it would be nice to get them up easier. I will try the pitch change and see if it helps. Thanks again
  21. 20' Chapparal, 305 mercruiser, 21 pitch stainless prop. when giving it throttle the boat just rides there with the nose in air for quite awhile, eventually the nose comes down and it planes out. It doesn't seem to matter with 3 people or just me. Doesn't really bother me since I troll 99% of the time , but it just seems to me it should plane out quicker. Would changing the pitch of the prop help? If anybody has any ideas any input would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Haven't seen any posts concerning anyone fishing Keuka. I'm planning on going Friday night or Sat and was wondering if anybody has any advice as to what is catching fish and how deep to try? Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks
