  1. Should be a basic roll pin in the center of the spool. Just got to pull all the cable off
  2. Once you take the electric motor cover off the side n remove the cable. On ur schmetic drive out number 13 easly. That will free up the shaft n spool. Its in the center of the spool
  3. i seen and heard of a couple issues like this how old is your fuel line from the tank to the engine? my father had an issue this spring with his 89 mariner the problem was that the fuel line had dry rot and was sucking air good luck!
  4. Im intersted in the rod rack just curious of the shipping cost to oswego ny
  5. Started running a few jet divers. Both 30's and 40's. been running them On planer borards. And they run fine. Have taken lots of hits on large fish. But can not keep them on the hook. Any sugestions on helping the hook up to in the boat ratios? Thank you
  6. Im by no means a pro at copper but what iv found is keep the tip high n not let the "belly" of the copper get wobbing side to side. Other then straighted hooks we havent lost any on copper.
  7. White glow green dot. Early morning and or low light takes alot of hits with an a-tom-mik glow fly 21" on the fly leader seems to work well
  8. I bought an elite 5 dsi. The gps and chart plotter work great i have yet to figure out how to mark fish with it. I have downloaded the updates for the elite 5 dsi and printed the full operating manual for it. If i were to buy again i would but the elite 7 hdi. Not real happy with it
  9. I would not recommend the dsi. Great bottom view. But hard to pick up fish heard people having better luck with the hds
  10. i recently bought an elite 5 dsi lowrance. I'm thinking i bought the wrong one i cannot seem to mark a fish with it. the gps side of it works great. The speed and temp work nice it reads the bottom great but i cannot get it to mark fish. its irritating to spend that much money and not have it do what it says it will. any advice would be much appreciated or it may end up in the bottom of lake O thankz
  11. i bought a "new" used depth raider off this site, got it mounted on my boat never having used one before hooked it up on the rigger wired up the read out and spooled up new coated rigger wire. i striped back the end of the coated wire and tied it directly to the swivel then wrapped it in the water proof tape. Tried it Sunday with no luck of it working. I did put a new battery in the probe. is their any way of testing the probe to see if its functional. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thankz.

  15. i picked up an 88 25' Larson with a 4.3 v6 in the fall, it needed some serious TLC the original ritzy comforts had long been removed and cobbled together. the trailer that came with the boat had also seen better days. the previous owner of the boat had told me of how he "gave er all she had" and that a wicked noise came from the motor. said his friend lifted the engine cover off and something blew out of the engine and landed in the water. shortly their after it seized. picking the boat up cheap i found that the motor had in fact died of and RPM attack and shot a rod threw the pan. i got lucky and picked up a great deal on an 89 Larson on a yacht club trailer with a very very low hr 5.0 v8 in great condition as well as the out drive and other goodies. the boat itself had been left out in the weather for at least 10yrs neglected and not used, after some engine and out drive swapping and tinkering on the 25 footer she runs great n hauls the mail if ya need to. my buddy that helped me with the work came up with Redline for the name figuring that its already been pushed to the end and that it hauls now would be a fitting name. good luck naming your own rig. - fish hard - its better then work even on the worst day-
