  1. Thanks for the replies I have remotes for the throttle and shifting steering however I haven't quite figured out yet. I want to mount it in the middle of the platform so not sure how to remote steer it to the main with out wireless steering system. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I understand your points just trying to use what I already have. The motor right now sits on a older mirror craft that is not much more than a row boat and will troll all day without loading up. I want to keep motor because I will use that boat in smaller water. Like I said before I know it's not perfect but financially a new 15 to 20 hp is out of the question. I thought if I could troll with the little boat at around 2 mph at a idle I should actually be working the motor a little harder on a bigger boat wich in theory should be better for the 2 stroke. As far as brackets go was going to fabricate them my self. I don't know just like the idea of having the second motor for the just incase times and also save the hours on the main motor. Thank you for your response just don't know what the best options are. The main motor I have a trolling plate on and also have bags but the insurance of having a second means of propulsion is a good idea.

  3. Use as a trolling motor. Or as a back up in case of main motor failure. I know it isn't ideal for size but it is also free. Use it on a smaller boat that I don't use much anymore but want to keep. Doesn't take me long to switch it back to the other boat if the need arises. Kind of I swing what I have on hand at this time.

  4. I'm in the process of rebuilding a 21 ft Thompson boat. I have completely gutted interior and rebuilt everything. Boat has a 305 under the dog house which I use for both trolling and motoring. My next step is to build a new swim platform on the boat and would like to put a kicker center ship off the swim platform. I see a lot of boats running 15 hp or 20hp kickers. I have a mint 35 hp Johnson that has been rebuilt to almost new. It's from the early 80s. My question is this over kill for the boat. It's a 2 stroke and it's my understanding that this motor weight is not much compared to some of the bigger 4 stroke kickers guys are running now. Thanks in advance for any feed back.

  6. Probably a stupid.question but the site says launching included does that mean they have a way.to launch your boat or does it just mean the launching fee is waved Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Has anyone ever dry docked there boat at Meyers on Cayuga lake. Toying with the idea to save on wear and tear hauling boat over an hour 1 way all the time. Thanks just don't know if it's worth it or if anyone has had good or bad experiences. Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Nice good luck tomorrow Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Awsome good job glad it came together for you. What depths were you fishing Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Was thinking about maybe building a frame and useing house hold vinyl soffit to cover it up. Would breath that way and fairly flexible. Thanks. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Wondering what people put on the inside stern of there boats behind the dog house. I am in the process of rebuilding the dog house and gunwales on my boat but am stuck for ideas for the stern. The gunwales and dog house were framed out and covered with plywood than covered with the infamous Flex seal roll on white paint. To my surprise came out extremely nice looking. Did not want to fiber glass but wanted to protect the wood. Anyway the stern section of my boat meets the gunwales sides in a curve and plywood won't make the bend. Any input appreciated thanks. Want to cover up all the wires and fuel lines and vent tubes to protect them and also for esthetics. Thanks. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Presentation having your lures where the fish are and at speeds they will produce. You can drag all the stuff you want to be hind the boat but if you aren't deep enough or to deep or going to fast to slow can make a big difference.

  15. I like moonshine and Michigan stingers on the finger lakes. Purple and white on cayuga lake are usally good. Alot of blue silver and green silver produce well to. Colors can vary from day to day. Flasher fly and spindoctor flies in the same colors produce well also. Don't get stuck on colors as much as presentation. Green purple blue will catch fish.
