    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    Sat for the first time this season up north for muzzleloader. An unidentifed deer busted out on my walk in. About 30 minutes before legal light I had 3 does walk in front of me, 2 small and a big doe. Big doe goes into the brush before the clearing first so I get ready and shoot her when she walks out. As soon as the smoke cleared I knew I screwed up because the deer laying there was not big. To make matters worse it ended up being a button buck. A little rough on the pride side of things (and knowing I took a potential future stud out) but I know plenty of people that have done it and it’s still more meat than I had in the freezer this morning.

    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    I don’t even have a bow for this season yet and I’m gonna be leaving for New Zealand friday for work for a minimum of 2 weeks. I’m not too concerned about letting a few of my spots sit a little longer though. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    10 Meter resto

    Finished the hatch last night. The Baltek coring was easy to work with and the West system expoxy was pretty fool proof if you read the instructions. Picture is from this morning after i took the weight that was holding the coring down off it. Seems like it got a good bond and is very solid. I filled any voids around the edges and between pieces with thickened epoxy and it seemed to fill the voids well now that it’s dry. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Got all stripes removed, most thru hull drains out (plastic and one was cracked, going bronze), motors are almost ready to go in and 2/3 of the boat is buffed (won’t wax until new stripes are on), just got my new deck hatch coring so I’ll start that tonight and I have Thursday-Monday off so hopefully in the water by Tuesday. Almost forgot I picked up the new interior yesterday and it looks 1000 times better. Finally all coming together. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. Just reading through the thread and saw you’re going to keep the trailer for your new boat. Has that changed or will a 10m fit on that trailer? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I’m not even 100% sure of what I’m doing. I’m kind of a YouTube and fake it till I make it kinda guy. Figure it’s better to trial and error and figure it out while I’m young so I’ll know what I’m doing down the road if I have to do it again. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    10 Meter resto

    Today I took my hatches to the basement to recore the one that was soft and the other depending on how much of a pain in the balls that one was. I was working hard to get a little of what there was left of solid balsa off the top skin of fiberglass. My uncle who does finish work came down and saw what I was doing and ran up to his truck and got me one of those oscillating dremel cutting tool deals. I put the wide half moon looking blade on there and it works perfectly. Wide enough to keep from cutting into the skin and cuts under the core material perfectly to get it off the glass. If anyone needs to recore deck hatches I HIGHLY recommend investing in one of these tools. What it took me an hour to get done with a wide chisel scraper I got done in 5 minutes with this tool. Pics show how bad this one hatch is weighed probably 50lbs more than the other one of the same size. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Fished with Dave on the .com last year for bottom fish with some guys from work. Him and Sandro were really good guys and Dave actually showed a lot of interest and asked a lot of questions about how we fish. His boat is seriously impressive, the day we went out it was 10-12 footers and he parked it into the wind and the boat soaked almost everything up. I didn’t ask them too much about the show because i figured he was sick of those questions but he did say they get much less per pound but catch usually around 90-100 fish a year.

    10 Meter resto

    Just figured I’d throw up a couple pics and story of the restoration of my 10 Meter Trojan. I bought the boat at the end of last summer in need of a port engine. Since then I have stripped bottom to gel coat and redid it in black, degreased sanded and painted the engine room, port side and center, the stbd engine was in the boat when i bought it and i was going to just get a long block for that side until i found two used crusader long blocks and had them rebuilt(machine work, I’m assembling them myself) when the stbd motor comes out this weekend I’ll paint that side, and redid the battery box. The upholstery is at the shop being redone right now. Upgraded the electronics with furuno units I got out of a Tiara demo boat to keep cost down and went through and scrubbed all areas of the bilge. I thought I would have a lot more done at this point but this lack of spring has me way behind. I have quite a bit of work to do getting the new motors in but hope to splash in time for the canal opening so I can get it to Oswego ASAP. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Slip questions

    Depends on where you live, price, etc. For me oswego is way more of a straight shot. A slip over 30’ is 1500 for the season with power and water at wrights for non resident, 1300(?) for under 30’. I also like fishing Oswego as you’re right in the middle of everything and it’s not too long of a run anywhere. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
