  1. One can buy battery cable in any length from Napa. Go the second battery route, and put the starter battery in the bow of the 14'er. Probably needs a little weight up there anyway. Route the longer battery cables where you want them, or like them and be confident with both motors. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I literally had this same convo with a captain that has forgotten more than I know. He said the same. Higher tow line is better. Put a cheap carabiner on tow line, pull it down to attach planer release and send it down and out. I have berts masts and they are TALL. I was going to cut them. He said no way, no how. Do the carabiner and you will be thankful. The further forward the masts are, the better too. Better angles to the boat, easier to retrieve and better vision.

  3. Depends on how much you want to spend, and what you plan on doing with the rod holders. Dipsys? How many dipsys per side? Planer boards? How many per side? If you mix and match your holders, you can save a lot of $$. For instance, the cannon track is cheapest, but their multi axis holders are not cheap. However, the lexan Bert's rod holders are a nice price, but you can't run dipsys outta them, while they will hold your planer rods nicely. I have run three per side of the lexan holders for my planer rods, and one per side of the Bert's ratcheting for my dipsys, all in 36" of cannon track and saved a lot of $$. Was it all color and finish matched? No. Did it fish really well, and save some $$? Yes. Just depends on what you want. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Not sure, but I thought removable curtains across the back of the house was an option. Worth a look. I love that style of boat, but j too think they would get really hot in the Summer. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I was wondering this same thing. I read through the docs I could find and didn't see anything that precluded actually fishing and the actual travelling to fish. This is mainly my inference as to the small group size and not congregating. The increased frequency of shoppers at bait stores/gas stations may get someone in trouble though. Is it spelled out anywhere obvious? If so, I couldn't find it. For instance, Fat Nancy's is still open to sell gas and propane. Could someone go in and buy bait, some spoons and a few Rapalas too? Sure. Could Fat Nancy's, or the shopper get into trouble. I don't have the answer to that question. Now, God forbid, if someone needed help and required Sheriff or USCG assistance, that's another story. I could see a citation coming in that scenario. I am putting together a charter fishing boat in Henderson and working on my own. I hope I am ok there. I may have to go to the hardware store. Could I/should I get a citation for that? Once again, I don't have the answer. Matt Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. It's not foolproof, but I believe Mercury has a prop selection tool on their website. Since you're running a Mercruiser drive, they should have what you're looking for. I am sure you could give them a call too. Matt.
  8. I feel your pain. I looked and looked all Fall for one. Never found one that fit the puzzle. Ended up buying a Shamrock 260. Last I knew, Pennyanguy has a twin screw 260 for sale. I was looking for a single. There are quite a few single Penn Yans running around Henderson Harbor. Keep your eyes on the marinas down there. They do come for sale occasionally, but get scooped up pretty quick. Best of luck to you. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. A bit of a haul, but sure looks nice. https://cleveland.craigslist.org/boa/d/lakeside-marblehead-wellcraft-2800/7052797403.html Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. PLoveland, this would make a great charter fishing boat. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. When I am putting stuff together to fish, I check my mono by pulling out a bunch, like 30-50 or so feet onto a clean floor. I then reel it back up pinching it between my thumb and pointer finger. If when the mono is all reeled back up, I have a collection of white chalk on my fingers where I pinched it, it is time to change it. If it is clean, I run it.

  12. Just to let people know, I marked this ad "Sold/Closed" only so it didn't sit open ended out there in the interwebs indefinitely. I still own the boat, and will still entertain offers and such until it sells. I am going bigger and have my eyes on something. This boat is currently professionally winterized, wrapped and sitting on the trailer. If interested, make an offer. I will let her go for a reasonable offer. Matt.
  13. For sure. Just happens to be currently stripped down as it sits in storage. I will include the electronics though if wanted. Matt Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Honestly, I've never used a cannon where I didn't have to hold the button in the down position for a short period of time to halt the upward momentum. I thought that was how they were designed. Mag10a, new Mag 5's, Mag 10HS, Marlins...all the same procedure. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
