  1. Well the time has come to replace the current trailer and I’m looking for recommendations from people with first hand experience buying a new trailer. As for the trailer I need a dual axle bunk style for my deep V aluminum boat. I’m in Rochester NY but willing to drive a reasonable distance. Has anyone worked with a dealer that walks you through the process. I mean more then what is the GVWR what will it weigh loaded with gas batteries, gear, etc. Do dealerships help to identify the boats specs like transom to front eye to determine if the winch post can be adjusted to fit or do I need to bring that information? What about bunk alignment? My current trailer the bunk widths can be adjusted for the bow and aft pairs. Is this something I should expect they do or is this on me? I’ve never bought a trailer alone always a package with the boat. Thanks Terry
  2. I’ll take the charging cable shipped to 14580. I will pm you my info this afternoon. Terry
  3. Looking for some insight. I have been running Invader downriggers with the Big Jon butterfly and rod holders on them for years. The butterfly and and rod holders were located on the front of the riggers basically between the motor and the boom pulley. I just bought Cannon Mag 10's and they have plastic rod holders located on the rear of the rigger body up high. Are there any differences or issues I should be aware of using the Cannon plastic rod holders? The adjustable Cannon butterfly and swivel rod holders look nice and are similar to what I am accustomed to but they put the rods behind the rigger. Is this an issue or an advantage (was not an option with the Invaders) but definitely look like they will take up some room in the boat. I have an 8' beam with a dog house so it gets tight back there. I am thinking of running the plastic ones for maybe a season to see how I like them instead of jumping right in buying the swivels unless the overwhelming response is that the plastics are junk and just don't cut it and to upgrade now before I lose gear. Looking to hear pros cons of the plastics vs the swivel combo. Also things to consider with the rods being located up higher where the plastic rod holders are located vs lower near the base. Thanks Terry
  4. Guys sorry if this has been discussed, I tried to search for 1/2 hour and could not find my answer. After running Invader downriggers since the early 90's I finally broke down and bought brand new Cannon Mag 10STX's that are supposed to arrive today. I had the Invader downriggers mounted to Traxstech Swivel risers for my tracks. Should I eliminate the Cannon Swivel mount and bolt the Cannon mounting plate to the Traxstech swivel base? (the Traxstech swivel base is narrower then the cannon mounting plate) Or Should I buy Non-swivel Traxstech risers and use the Cannon swivel bases? Is one method more secure then the other? Does one style swivel mechanism work better then another? Thanks Terry

  6. Hey gator I’m not familiar with the camera but could you buy something like this and just solder leads to your application? I have old style radio control transmitters that also stack them so it’s longer pack like 4 on each side you can find them cheap too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. I wouldn’t reply to the “I have a friend” post most likely a scam I’ve received two similar posts very generic replies. Not looking to bash anyone just letting you know if someone has one they usually are more specific in their reply. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  11. 4 rod holders for sale $35 each. They retail for $59 each new. Save some money if you have a need for these. All have rod caps that have not been glued and set thumb knob set screw. A little boat rash on a couple very minor. These are in very good shape. The mast holes are 2” ID the rod holder section is like 1 3/4” just like most rod holders and they are approximately 11 1/2” long/deep.

  12. Have been fishing on this boat with Mike for years. This little motor just runs never an issue. Mike takes very good care of all of his equipment. This would be a great kicker or small boat motor. Terry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
