    Is your deep cycle battery also your starting battery, or do you have a separate starting battery?

    Chasing Eyes in the Big O

    I thought the state wide limit is 5 for walleye. Am I wrong?

    Velvet transmissions ?

    L&M is correct, formerly made by Borg Warner, now Regal Beloit. Google Velvet Drive transmissions and you will find them.

    Velvet transmissions ?

    You are probably referring to Velvet Drive transmissions. They are a major supplier of transmissions for marine applications as well as industrial. It is a brand name and does not describe any particular function or type. They are high quality and were very commonly paired with big block gas engines. They are still in business and located in South Carolina.

    Remote oil change filter holder

    I have installed several of these through the years and they are not all the same. Many of the cheaper ones use cheap castings for holding the filter and thy don't always mate well with the filter. Cheap ones will sometimes use clamps on the hoses. Marine grade units typically have crimped high pressure hoses and a machined filter holder. You cant walk home if the hose lets loose out on the water. Regardless of which type you buy, be aware it may use a different filter than you currently have on the engine.

    what goes around comes around

    Typical of a "green" agenda. Never consider the facts involving an issue, simply create a narrative that suits your point of view and label every other perspective as ignorant or worse. Seen this too many times confronting well meaning people on different issues who just simply don't have, or choose to ignore, the correct information.

    safe to eat ?

    NYS has changed its advisories for eating fish from all waters around the state. If you have concerns about eating Ontario fish, check out the new publication. https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/2800.pdf

    Starting out this weekend

    Haven't fished the Canadian side yet this year but if you run east to the Niagara bar, the lake trout have been really strong along with a pick of cohos.

    very local weather forecast

    I have also found that a number of NOAA website addresses that I have saved don't work anymore. All of the information is still available but you have to look for the new addresses. I found wave height and wind speed at: http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/ Hope this helps.

    Bottom painting hull

    Hard to tell much from the picture but here are a couple of suggestions. It appears you may have multiple coats of paint on the bottom if that is blue paint showing through the black in the picture. If also appears the paint has peeled away from the hull just below the boot stripe and left a bare spot. If both or either of these are true, you need to remove the paint that is on the boat for good results. Having the boat soda blasted is far easier and better than trying to sand the paint off. If the paint on the boat is an ablative paint and the picture is only showing stains, you can power wash the hull and repaint with an ablative paint. You cannot put a hard bottom paint over an ablative paint, it will not stay on. you can cover a hard bottom paint with an ablative paint if the hard paint is in good condition and you power wash the bottom first. Cost for painting a bottom varies by the yard but figure they will charge you for the paint plus 2 to 3 hours of labor at the yard rate. Some yards will charge you a flat rate of $XX per foot based on the boat,s LOA.
