  1. I roll them a little loose and the store each of them in the leg portions of old blue jeans that have been cut off. Has worked great for years. Do not store wet !
  2. BIGJON SPORTSPAK MANUAL SIDERIGGER DOWNRIGGER - COST NEW : $ 499.95 LIKE - NEW CONDITION - $ 350.00 SHIPPED ( IN NORTHEAST)
  3. Looks like two separate issues. Depending on the scale you are using on the MFD , the digital depth reading could easily vary from the depth scale on the side of the graph. Try changing you max depth on the MFD to something closer to the depth of the ball. The variance on the rigger readout could simply be a wrong reading on the rigger's counter. As an example, when the springs which drive the counter on my BIG JON riggers get worn and weak they slip, especially if you run the rigger down fast. Try marking the cable at various measured points and see if they match up with the rigger's counter. The same sort of thing often happens with counter fishing reels if you reel them in too fast.

  5. >> [email protected] RE : 1986 SYLVAN OFFSHORE 22 BOAT IS AVAILABLE. I CAN MEET WITH YOU TODAY, BUT CALL ME TO CONFIRM TIME ETC. JACK 413-519-3509
  6. The boat is located at my home in Westhampton,MA. Regarding price : I understand your position being retired and on Soc. Sec.. I am 72 and also retired. I have just reduced the price and feel the asking price is fair. What did you have in mind ?
  7. Transom is solid . Stringers are aluminum and in good condition
  8. Verify that the head unit has power and is working. When hooked into your 12 volt supply, you should see a small black dot or decimal point in the lower digital screen which would show the temp if a working probe were attached. No "dot" means no power or a bad head unit. If the head is working , follow the advice above to check out the probe..
  9. Try oceandynamics.com . They are in florida, but do a lot of customwork including glass on boats. They were able to help me with a vent window frame extrusion for a 1986 Sylvan. Jack
  10. When attaching the " stub" to the drive unit be sure to line up the small indent on the stub with the one on the drive unit. this assures alignment of the tapped screw holes. Also torque the screws per the instructions and use a small amount of temporary ' threadlock'. I also use anti seize lube on the drive stems so that you don't have to beat up the drive unit if you have to remove it. Maintaining a heading at slow speed in rough water is difficult if you are trying to use a kicker motor. The unit just works too hard, like you would if you were manually steering. Switch over to your main motor and use a drift bag if necessary. Other than making the steering stiffer, the SPX 5-R units generally work pretty well. I have had one for six years.

  12. Hi, Can't tell from photos - Do these snap on to the main line or do they have to be threaded on the main line ? Also , are they designed to work with mono or braid or both ? Thanks, Jack
