  1. Fiber glass boats have a wooden skeleton. Transom, stringers and deck usually all wood with fiberglass over it. Stress cracks near stringers is usually a good sign stringers are shot. Soft spot in the deck any where is a good chance of stingers are shot. If they are shot, then transom is shot... Fiber glass boats turn into nightmares quick Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Nice fish. My uncle got an LL in 6 ft of water... Have no idea how it didn't snap the line. Measured 25". Couldn't weight it. My scale got wet some how. Waiting for him to text me the pictures. We were out perch fishing... Great by catch tho. [emoji41] Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Went out 3 weeks ago. I would cast straight out and get sunfish... After dark. Buddy literally is casting inches from same spot I am... Pulls out bullhead... Could be distance between hooks, leader length, sinker weight... Could be a patch of sea weed they approach and use for cover... Fish are weird.

  4. Chartreuse and white rim. They work good on bright days with flashers and flies. I use to run to lead cores on boards with a mag black down the middle. Haven't had the pleasure of owning down riggers yet. Got a lot going out in fixing equipment and upgrading business gear Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Ill second black Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Bar slid in easy and all the way. I'm just going to take it to Barrett marina. They said they could look at it this week. Maybe one these years I'll get in the derby... Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Well... To my displeaser, my uncle come over... Tapped it on with a block wood... I know its not right but its on... Spine marks where on all sides. Linkage lined up... Changed the impeller last year... Had no problem... Don't get it... I think the front of the motor is a bit high... At this point.... Its on... Put the rest back together and give her a go...

  8. Thanks Hank. Yes Les, I'd do a monster tree any day over smashing my knuckles lifting this heavy mother.... Got it aligned after I stuck mounting nuts and fiber in, or it looks like equal spine marks. Now I am having trouble getting the shift to stay in forward gear when sliding it on... The shift linkage keeps turning. I'm definitely selling this and getting a outboard... Got the motor to run good Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Looked this morning. Back is way to low. Probably because when I took it out the first time I got rushed and didn't see how they came out. Found a diagram. Going back over to use the lift to put them in order... Hopefully that is the issue Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I have the tool. Borrowed it from a marina. I think the front is way to low. Ill take a pic in the morning. Maybe its not going in all the way but it looks and feels like it but no marks show. Slid it in the old coupler and got marks. Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Replaced flywheel, tried doing alignment,no marks. Put a different couple on... No marks... Tried to slide the out drive on... No go... What did I do wrong Sent from my VS425PP using Lake Ontario United mobile app
