  1. Absolutely. If the price needs to go up, it needs to go up. On another note, I am frequently in Watkins Glen to fish seneca or just hang out at the lake with friends that own a home there. If PAP knows of a local place to get good lead, I would have no problem picking it up and bringing it to Harvey the next time im headed to Seneca. I will be going for the lake trout derby so let me know Harvey/PAP. PM me for my cell if you need it. Jim
  2. I would put at least 200' on them. There are various brands but the more you have on the less chance you have a brain fart and let the thing out too far and loose everything. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=downrigger+cable&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.TRS1&_nkw=downrigger+cable&_sacat=0 https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=downrigger+cable Jim
  3. Thanks Les I will do that. Just as another note, I really won't be camping on this. I currently don't have the option to close the back of mine and don't really want to close it. On those rainy days it's really nice to be able to get out and not have to worry about getting soaked. Jim Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. soft top Is there another "industry" term given for a soft top that is similar to a bimini but attaches to your windshield, has a few windows, and a zipper that you can access your bow? Im looking everywhere as I may want to upgrade mine and all I can find are standard bimini tops that dont attach to the windshield and dont enclose the dash area. Thanks, Jim
  6. nice boat... I have a 2001 Fishmaster 196 and absolutely love it. It can handle anything you throw at her. Jim
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I think you made a smart choice my friend! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Solt to Tin Cup. Thanks, Jim
  12. PM's sent to both of you. Jim
  13. Okuma Magda 45DX Anyone have any 45DX's or similar for sale? Just looking to throw a few backups on the boat. Jim
  14. 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
