  1. You want to sell all 4? Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I am not sure what they use it for, but if the they use it for any type of research. It can be registered with a R V for "research vessel" with the name of the boat. When I lived in Maryland, the research boats I was on could register that way. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  4. I was breaking off my 8 lb. Floro on the big ones. So I went with a 15 lb. Vanish floro and it works well. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Everything that everyone has said makes sense. Not saying me, but there are some very knowledgeable people on this thread that have thrown out some good points. Just gotta narrow it down. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I had some similar symptoms with my outboard a few years back. The high rpm carb needle was stuck. It got gummed up. I found "Deep Kreep" spray made by sea foam worked the best to break it up and clean it out. Get her hot, spray in the air intakes, shut her down, let it work, repeat. I use it at the end of each season now and have not had the symptoms since. Worth a try. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I am so pleased to hear that so many others feel as I do. I for one would not be out there supporting our local shops and visiting the lakes if not for this site. I am very busy with work and kids, so when I have the chance to get out I do not want it to be a waste of my tome and money. People like Iron Duke have made my quality of life, so much better for my family. We can enjoy the lakes together thanks to Mike. I for one do not post that much, I don't have a profile picture, and I am a huge "lurker". I live vicariously through all of the regulars and feel like I have known them all my life. I don't know what I would have done without the help. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Good research Mike, you are exactly correct on the in house work. I had to send one of mine in about 10 years ago. I called customer service and they were awesome. I got a woman that was extremely nice and helpful, she got me to a service guy, we talked about it, sent it in, and they did the work and shipped it back very quickly. Much sooner than I ever thought it would take. Give them a call....can't hurt. Oh I almost forgot, the service guy they pulled off the floor to talk to me. I thought that was cool. I had motor problems so he walked me on how to remove the motor to pack it and send as so not to spend a ton on shipping. He was great!!! Joel
  9. Well don't feel too bad. I went out on Saturday and pulled off the tarps and un did all the spider web of rope, put all the seats back in it, put the numerous batteries in it, electronics and life jackets, and got both main motor and kicker motor running. Was going to go back out and run the motors one more time and the wife got me distracted and I forgot to get the canvas on it. Well, I ended up with about 6 inches of snow in/on the old girl. Went out about mid week after some had melted and hand shoveled the rest out and finally got the canvas on it. Not a good feeling.....
  10. Nice post Tom. We only got the one but it was a pleasure to have a great evening out on the water with even better friends. I am looking forward to that day on the big "O" you spoke of. We will get back out soon and I will give you and the Dr. that gourmet meal.

    Oh I know. I was referring to their attitudes. Many have lots of money and have the rich and powerful attitude to go with it. Like I said, that comes from personal experience.Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Hey fellas just for the record I am not to keen on the sailboats either. I am a fisherman just like everyone else. Don't get me wrong I loved racing, but I definitely didn't fit in. From being on sailboat crews, they are very arrogant. I have also have my fair share of sailboats both cut in front and run over my lines. I agree they deserve a little love tap but they usually have the money to repair or replace. Like I said very arrogant. I don't have that kind of disposable income.

    You are correct. From my racing days, most sailboat owners do believe that they have the right of way at all times. Oddly they are aware that on larger bodies of water the only thing they must give way to cargo ships. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Chuck what lake? Lively I just took the safe boater course with my son and I am pretty sure you are correct. I do remember the sheriff mentioning about the "common courtesy" between sailboats and a fishing boat with lines out. If they can the sailboat should give way. But as Chuck found out the hard way some of them take the rules to extremes. I use to sailboat race on the Chesapeake bay and some sailors think they own the water and everyone should give way to them. I have seen first hand $250,000 sailboats bouncing off of each other and screaming from six inches away..... now that is a sight. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
