  1. Computer - idle control, overheating, trim motor corrosion haven't had a chance to get it back to dealer Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I would run it a bit more, but the smart thing to do is call Mercury in the morning and ask them. I have 485 hours on my 2 year old 150 four strokes. I will tell you they are ok until about 400 hours then issues begin. The prop chatter really bugs me at idle, it does get better if you upgrade the hubs.
  3. I have a Brass Beef, still in package. I requested a series of gold (Brass) lures and Tom made this one, and a yellow one. I also had a few geezers (also my design) in brass. I am going to check my other stash to see if I have any that are not in the package.
  4. For sale 2 triple rod holder bases to Deluxe Scotty rod holders 2 Scotty rod holders with traditional two-way bases two flush mount rod holder bases one Scotty downrigger mounting plate. Sold as a complete lot $75.00 plus shipping. See pictures. Call or text for details.
  5. More than once, I have found it cheaper and quicker to just buy a new/rebuilt carb and then it is plug and play. After you do get your carb fixed use only non ethanol fuel or properly treated if non ethanol is not available. Add Lucas fuel treatment each fill up and run at least one mile at full throttle at the end of each trip. Good Luck
  6. It was 1976, the man's name was James Modlish, he was the minister at First Bible Baptist Church on North Greece Road, he won it with a Coho, he caught it on a Silver Looter flutter spoon. My father fished with him later that spring, my first Lake Ontario fishing experience was in June of 1977 on his new boat "Silver Looter". That day my father caught a 16# Brown Trout, my biggest that day was 6#. I was 10 years old and I was hooked. And now you know the rest of the story.......

  10. Replace the wire and be more careful in the future...or rewind the reel so the kink is on the long side. Tighten the drag when any fish gets to 600' and turn the boat in the direction of the fish.
  11. I'd bet that boat can really catch fish!
  12. Imron is the only paint that I have found to work. And it does work well. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Never mind.........forgot I was dealing with NY....Reality check...just remembered why I left!!
  14. Ballyhoo Is there any interest in fresh, brined, flash frozen Ballyhoo? I'm thinking a pack of 10 would sell for $15 delivered to point breeze. If there is interest, I'll research the possibilities.
  15. Is the steering Hydraulic? Does the windlass work? Do you have a trailer for it? What is it's beam?

  18. You should be able to find one. Look for 1985-95 27' Sportcrafts. They sell in your price range. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. I don't think the 29 would be considered a trailer boat. Over the years, I have learned a lot from this site: http://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/191605-tiara-29-open.html#b
  20. Generally applies to all old saltwater boats Survey will give overall condition less mechanical, you would want to have 2 different people look at it. 18 years is a long time. I know several folks who got killer "deals" on saltwater boats only to sink $15-20k into them the first season in fresh water. --each were surveyed and checked by mechanics. Another factor are the engine hours.... In salt water the more the boat is used the better. At $35k you can take the risk that the engines are good and come out ahead...but keep $20k available just in case you need to repower. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Nothing good there.... an 18 year old boat in salt water will need a new pair of engines ($20k) and most likely a complete rehab of vessel systems ($45k) Be very careful with salt inboards Down here guys are buying those boats, removing engines and putting multiple outboards on a bracket Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
