  1. Mine was 21'er. It had a 125 Merc 2 stroke. It was rated for 175, but the PO opted for the 125. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I had a 2001 Trophy with an outboard on it. It had the fishboxes in the floor that also filled up with rain. Hated it. Gets real nasty, fast. I found a couple things you can do to remedy the problem: 1. Disconnect the pumps so the rain water drains to the bilge and rely on your bilge pump to do the work on a regular basis. I didn't like that idea at all, and didn't do it. 2. Buy some really good rubber weather stripping and stick it to the top of the rim around the top of the fishboxes. It seals against the lid when it is closed, and keeps the rainwater out. I sold the boat due to wanting to go bigger, and it was underpowered, before I applied the weather stripping. Hope this helps.

  3. FWIW, Bert's makes a lexan version of their rod holder. They are better than the Scotty's, but def not Cannon,etc. They work really well for planer board rods. They go into position with two hands, but come up with only a one handed pull upward. They fit in all tracks. I use them for planer board rods and holding rods while underway only. I also use the Cannons for my dipsy rods. I thought heavy duty holders for planer rods was a waste of money, so I max and matched my set up and really like it. I included a not so great pic to kinda show what I am talking about. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Lakers and salmon are not in the bays right now. They are out in the lake proper. Past the big islands. Pike,pickerel and bass can be found in the bays right now just about everywhere. The walleyes? Good luck. They are here, but very scattered and tough to target unless you put one helluva lotta time in.
  5. Somebody must be looking for some downriggers. If you don't like my asking price, make me an offer. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. The original generation of Bravo drives did have corrosion problems. I had a Bravo 3(counter rotating stainless props). Merc discovered all that steel right next to the aluminum drive housing was a bad thing. The newer gen drives were built using different paints, alloy mixes, and more anodes. I had to replace my upper drive assembly and my lower unit. The new units seemed to weather better.
  7. I had the 231 WA just like what you have pictured. I put a 36" track over that whole thing. In the track, I mounted a rigger all the way aft, and four rod holders. The rod holder furthest forward was the diver holder. I never had any problems with that piece acting as if it was coming out of there. If you felt it needed to stronger, you could add more mounting screws to it. Oversizing what is already there likely won't bolster it much, but more screws would. Loved that ProLine. Great hull. Would handle anything. I just needed to go bigger and get rid of the dog house for my charter boat.
  8. Don't put your dipsys in titeloks. They will eventually go for a swim. Use them for storage and planer rods. Put a heavy duty holder in front of them, and put them all in track. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Three new style Mag 5ST. All three have adjustable booms installed. Pulleys good, etc. Cannon plugs cut off whips for different plugs. Switches good. Auto stop all good. The middle one has a brand new motor. $300. The right one has the boat side whip. $300. One has a stripped knob on the rod holder, but still functions as chute rigger. $300. Good cables and terminators on all. Mounting blocks and two high profile swivels included. $850 for all. Preferred. I moved to Scotty riggers and want to move these. Located in Watertown/Henderson Harbor, NY. Pick up only. PM's or text. Matt Dickinson(315)778-3526 Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I have a couple 9" angled, I believe 30 degrees I would get rid of. Good shape. Holes are unthreaded and in the corners only. Match cannon swivels. Off brand, but solid and in good shape.
  11. I went from Lowrance to Garmin last year. The Garmin UI is just so much easier to use. I love the hybrid touch and buttons of the Echomap Plus series. You can program the soft buttons to automatically move to a desired screen with one button touch. Just fast and slick. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. It has been a few weeks since I went out of stony in my tin boat. I had the FF on the whole way out. The least amount of depth I saw was 1.5, but that was weeks ago. Never touched bottom though. The dock? That was another story. I had the least mobile of the two of us climb into the boat before I splashed it, then I climbed down in after it was in, and then reversed the process on the way out. I have not used it looked at Westcott launch. I would bet it's shallow getting out past the jetty's, but all sand. On another note, I keep my 26' Shamrock at Harbors End in Henderson. The first time I took it out of there, I felt this weird vibration. Looked at the FF and again 1.5. Luckily, all sand. I was dragging the keel and chopping sand. That was weeks ago, and the water has def come up some. Sent from my moto g(7) power using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I stumbled upon this video last year some time. Fish Hawk installed already.
