  1. Be careful at Stony. The aluminum rail around the wall is slippery like ice. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I have a fishing buddy interested in this boat. Please advise the best way to contact you about this boat. Matt.
  3. Stray current is a concern with slipped boats, no matter the hull material. Make sure your sacrificial anodes are up to the task in not only life span, but also the right kind. Most drives come with zinc, but I have researched and found that magnesium anodes are better in freshwater. You can also hang anodes over the edge of the dock to aid in warding off electrolysis of your drive or hull. Take a look around your marina too. If you see wires in the water or on the docks that look worn, or unkempt, address it. If there are boats near you that are plugged into shore power, be aware they may be leaking current too. Some do, some are just fine. Good luck and inspect your drive often. I had a Bravo 3 drive go bad due to electrolysis(and age). Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Looking for two pieces of 24" track. Let me know what you are willing to part with, and how much? Matt
  5. I went through those same symptoms with my Merc 5.7, electronic ignition. With your carb being rebuilt recently, I would think the mixture screws are off. Don´t forget to check your cap and rotor. If they are not connecting well, you will have crappy ignition, leading to the loading up of the heads you are getting. Napa carries marine application ignition parts, which by the way are a must. Be very attentive to the position of the plug wires if you do decide to put on a new cap. Switching them would be very bad for your motor. Good luck Matt
  6. Good point. I didn't think of that. On a wide beam, I bet that thing would sag terrible. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. As of right now, all seems to be open and barely usable. Henchen's is open and running. You will need boots and maybe even waders at all launches though. Maybe some others have heard different. I would not be surprised at this point. Water is beyond high. Water is full of debris. Be careful. Not sure about camping. Matt
  8. What about using a piece of the synthetic decking? Sure it will cost more, but is very stable, is easy to work with, will last forever and you have a pick of some colors that might set up nicely with your boat. Just a thought. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I will take them if still available. Sent you a PM. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Just for fun, I went right to their website. They have a few pair 40% off right now. I am in no way affilited with WM. Just putting it out there. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. FYI some West Marine models have a lifetime warranty. If you watch them closely they go on sale periodically. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. I have two pair of their bino's and have no complaints. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Bite has been really hit or miss. Some get a few, some strike out. High water keeps the temp all over the map. As far as debris, I was at the cottage today and saw a really large log/RR tie/timber floating into guffin bay. Gonna be wild for a while. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Water has gone up considerably since early May, and continues to rise. All launches require boots to launch and keep feet dry. As far as debris, I have to imagine stuff is getting floated all the while, so be careful and be mindful of land owners with your boat wakes near shore.

  14. Water levels are high again, so the creek is good. Follow your nav. buoys all the way out, you'll be fine. They are small and trying to submerge due to high water, so go slow until you are well clear of shoal on right and boulders on left at mouth of creek.
  15. What are you looking to get for the trailer? Any pics of it?
