  1. Interested- texted you Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Appreciate everyone's input! I do agree that some amount of fumes will be released into that compartment - hence my original concern. I do feel it is fairly vented so I have a decision to make. Putting boat in water this weekend so will explore if swim platform is viable for me. I really like the idea of the fume detection - regardless of where I end up with the tank. I didn't know those existed but will look to purchase and install one - thanks for that!
  3. Thanks, I do have a small swim platform that would hold the tank - in my situation, it’s pretty low to the water so would prob be fine on calm days but I would worry about water constantly flooding over the tank in bigger waves. To add some context to my first post, that area isn’t air tight, I do have some holes where my downrigger cords enter and some flush mount rod holders that provide some ventilation. It’s certainly “enclosed” though. I’m leaning towards leaving tank where it is, putting batteries in boxes with lids, and opening doors for a bit before staring and every so often.

  4. I just purchased a new four stroke kicker motor. My main motor is an older 2-stroke and I bypassed the oil injection and premix fuel and oil in my onboard tank for the main motor. So, I need to use a small remote tank for new kicker with “straight” gas. I was originally excited that the tank tucks nicely in the pictured storage compartment in the rear of my boat. Now that I’m looking at it, thinking this could be a pretty big hazard as my batteries and bus bar are in there also. Any thoughts? Wondering if rigging up a vent hose from tank lid to an external breather would be safe or if I should just avoid this location all together? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Thanks Rolmops. I actually think this is a 1973 based on serial number. I’ve owned it for about 10 years with no issues. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks for the correction - yes technically a 9.5. Apologies if I mislead by 0.4hp. I’ve always commonly referred to them as 9.9. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Johnson 9.9 Outboard. Newer spark plugs and impeller recently replaced. Runs and shifts good with no issues. Short shaft. Located just south of Buffalo. Call or text mike at 914-4four3-1five30 $300 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Two Scotty manual downriggers. Both riggers include cable and tilt/swivel bases. One has stainless cable and the other has coated cable from use with a Moore Subtroll. Counters work well on both. One has rodholder, other does not. One is missing handle, other has handle. Pictures show everything included. Looking for $200 for the pair. Located just south of Buffalo. I do also get to Mexico NY fairly often if that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Hi, Wondering if anybody has experience adding an alternator/charging capability to a manual pull start Mercury 9.9 or similar and any insight on what all is required? Specifically, I'm looking at a 9.9 model number 9.9ML part number 1f10211fk. Some internet searching turns up that it does seem to have a 6amp alternator despite being pull start. I'm skeptical on that? Additionally some searching on these boards and others turns up Mercury Part 856558a2 - which appears to be readily availabe for around $50 "Charge Kt- Battery". The charge kit appears to just be a set of cables - does anybody know if that is all that is required to add charging capacity to a pull start 9.9? Is there anything else needed? Has anybody done this and can share any experience or advice? Looking in the manuals, it seems that the 6amps is only achieved at full throttle with little to no power generated at idle but I'm thinking it will take a few thousand RPMs to move my 24' walkaround at salmon trolling speeds, hopefully would be enough to replensish a battery running 4 riggers? Thanks!!
  11. Hi, I'm looking for 4 Tite lok adjustable rod holders. With or without bases Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Thanks all for the info. I'm not real far away- 45 minutes or so but the slow response convinced me to stay home last two nights. Will probably give it a go next weekend. I always enjoy going up for a few quarts of them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Agree, might be a bit early yet Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Wondering if anybody has any smelt reports for the lower Niagara? Seems time of year and lake temperature are hitting their prime for the run. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Thanks - obviously I'll need ones that you can rotate each holder around the mast, correct? Also - are these any good for storage of rods while under power etc?
