  3. Oh yea if it doesn't work out let me know. thanks
  4. So the Catallina is gone too? thanks

  6. best great lakes boat

    Hey Mike, look at a good used PY and get a survey on it before buying. Love the Avenger we have, nice hard top, heavy boat for its size, wide beam at 9.5' as I recall and with all the talk about stability the secret I have found is running trolling bags off the sides when it is pretty rough. Will suck you right down on the water and takes a ton of pitch and roll out of the boat. There is a reason you see so many especially at Hughes! Not the fastest out there but a good solid platform to fish off. Don't let anyone kid ya either Lake Ontario when it is rough is rough.(period) As you well know! No matter what kind of boat you have you're going to feel it but you can mitigate the wave and bounce action somewhat too. I wanted a wide transom and got it in the Avenger and it is a compact design for the size of the boat. It is a dry ride too and a good hard top to get in out of the weather. Just put the kicker on it this summer and even with trolling bags out when it is really rough and snotty the Big Foot keeps right up with the waves for controlability. Lots of good boats will be coming up I would imagine. But everyone thinks bigger is better for a ride and it ain't especially with a big tall hard top. Lots of trade offs to be considered. Good luck man
  7. Yep like I said nice boat! Congrats
  8. Well hate to see this Rich but I understand completely. Rich is docked just up from me at Hughes and I can attest to the fastidiousness of his maintaining his boat. He is a very fine fella and the boat is TOO! Good luck brother.
  9. I sent ya a p.m. too, don't know if it wen through or not. thanks
  10. The BEST Hull Cleaner I've ever used

    I don't know the product number, but it is the same as CLR only BETTER. It is rust, stain, and calcium remover. Comes in a blue colored gallon jug at Home Depot. Sorry that I can't remember the product number. But I think in the first post I mention rust, stain, and calcium remover.
  11. Bunch of us will be out Sat. Went out Tues early with the wife and went west as far as Orbachers in 140 to 120 and from Orbachers back to the New Houses just west of the Marina had good screens. Was a wee bit choppy though! Always someone around to give you hand if need be.
  12. The BEST Hull Cleaner I've ever used

    I'm trying to cut down on the beer intake! How'd ya do last weekend Slooo Motion? Heard a bit of motion sickness with your fishing buddy. Saw ya coming in when I was heading home. 5 plus footers will do that though.
  13. Yep that is my ultimate fishing boat. Just sayin. If you ever consider a trade for a HD Electra Glide let me know. thanks
  14. Attach about 30' of braided line to the end of some new wire. That way the wire is completely wound up on the reel all the time and does not allow for kinking the wire when attaching divers and such. I am on the second year of using the same wire on both diver reels and haven't had a kink yet of any kind. This tip was given to me by the late Charter Capt. Larry Basset of Sea Dog Charters.
