  1. Called my father in law (hes the marine mechanic) at our local marina. They were a chrysler dealer years ago and the owner generally never throws any usable part away. Ill let you know if they have something. Jim
  2. Dont know if you saw this but this looks like a good deal. https://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/63145-19ft-starcraft-for-sale/#comment-465190 Jim
  3. Jeremy, I own a Starcraft Fishmaster 196 and love it. Mine is a 2001 that I bought used a few years ago and is immaculate. The boat itself has no wood anywhere. Everything is aluminum and a composite deck material (Sort of like HPDE). The boat handles extremely well in rough weather (5 footers no problem). Even the flotation foam under the deck isnt sprayed in, its blocks of foam cut to fit each section. Mine has the 4.0 litre Mercruiser and is extremely fuel efficient and I can get 40MPH WOT with 3 guys and all of my trolling gear. The back "deck" of the boat has the same composite material under the aluminum where you would mount your downriggers and such. The only thing I didnt like about the boat was at the helm. They used those stupid plastic push button resets for each switch on the dash. Not that any of them have tripped, but they all broke and are starting to fall into the dash. Its not a big deal as I am going to replace them in the spring, just something that I thought they could have pondered on for a while before they chose that route. Jim
  4. I think you made a smart choice my friend! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Solt to Tin Cup. Thanks, Jim
  6. PM's sent to both of you. Jim
  7. Okuma Magda 45DX Anyone have any 45DX's or similar for sale? Just looking to throw a few backups on the boat. Jim
  8. Cannon Tab Lock Bases (2207001) I have (3) Cannon Tab Lock Bases here that were pulled from my boat when I put my new downriggers on. Looks like they retail for about 25-30 bucks new depending on where you look. 50 bucks shipped for them all. All are in good condition. Jim
  9. Not what I have. Sorry Harvey.
  10. Fishy is your guy! Great shop over there on Keuka.
  11. I too like the Garmin stuff... EchoMap 73dv is what I have at the helm and a striker 4 dv up front. I dont use the DI for trolling but it has traditional sonar as well. Garmin's service is what sold me on it. Jim
  12. Nice job guys! Always happy to see a father and son making some great memories!! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Harvey, I have a few. I will give you a buzz to see if you want them. Jim
  14. I load the hornady 139gr hornady sst for most of my hunting as chuck has indicated. When I'm hunting something bigger or go west I always load Barnes ttsx or nosler accubonds. I didn't want this to get into some passing match about calibers. I'm simply stating my results and versatility with the 08. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. That little caliber is sweet also. The only negative is the ones you provided. I like to have guns that ammo and reloading supplies are readily accessible. Not only that but the 257 weatherby mag uses much more powder than the 708 at similar velocities. For 3200 ft per second and a 120 grain bullet you would be looking at 64 grains with the 257 vs. 42 grains with the 708.
