  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. Located in Webster NY willing to ship Terry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  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
  13. I have a complete Moor sub-troll unit with some extras What is included: Working Display unit with both gimbal mount and in dash mounting ring and power cable with inline fuse holder with original box. Working probe (not pictured still on boat in great shape) Brand new antenna originally $35 still in package New spool of 200' of coated cable originally $40 Good used rca cable from antenna to head unit Moor clincher kit for downrigger cable needs ring lug to terminate coated cable Extras also included: Good used spare antenna Spare used rca cable from antenna to head unit Spare used spool of coated downrigger cable about 150' Display power cable Extra display unit with gimbal mount that needs repair. I called the service rep in Buffalo last year and told him that the decimal on the display only comes on for about 10 seconds and then goes out. He said it is most likely a capacitor and he could repair it. My plan was to send it in for repair and keep it as a spare but have not sent it in. Extra probe is included this DOES NOT work I do not know what is wrong with it but intended to have it repaired with the head unit. For those of you that don't know the technician that worked for Moor in Buffalo has continued to service these units. His business is Big Blue Enterprises. He is very helpful he has a listing on E-bay for repairs. I am in no way affiliated or endorsed by him just passing on info if the buyer chooses to repair the extras. The only thing that you would need to complete the set up is a safety cable between the probe and downrigger weight. These are listed on E-bay right now for around $11 I am located in Webster NY pick up is ok and can ship if needed at owners actual expense. $250 I have been a member here Since July 2015 and bought several things from forum members over the years with good transactions and you can expect the same from me.

  14. Would also consider 959 or 859 DI units Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Looking for a 1159 DI head unit or complete set up. My unit died last night. Would consider 959 or 859 DI units. Looking to plug the head unit in to existing transducers on boat. Let me know if you have one and how much you want Thanks Terry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Fat Trout thanks for the input. Well some would describe the wakes in Irondequoit bay as "crazy conditions" when boat traffic is heavy. Traxstech says it is ok for drift bags which I would think would put a constant strain vs an anchor which should see some slack and bouncing. i have reached out to Traxstech and haven't got an answer yet. Hoping to get some real world experience here.
  17. Anybody using a traxstech cleat to anchor their boat while hanging out in the bays swimming or just floating? I recently installed a bow mount TM and lost the space for my cleat. I have a 24" track on the bow with a backing plate that my planer mast goes in so I confident the track should be ok but concerned about the cleat possibly pulling out of the base plate. I would not use in rough conditions or emergency situations I have other cleats on the boat. The TM has spot lock so not going to see a lot of use while fishing just when the family is out and I don't want the spot lock running while we are swimming around it. The boat is a 20' aluminum open bow. It is a minimal investment like $30 just trying to avoid wasting a day on the water or worse hurting someone if I get out there and it breaks right away. Thanks Terry

  21. I know it’s a long shot. Looking for at least one 6” or longer gold anodized Pursuit or Traxstech track. Would consider Berts and cannon. Thanks Terry Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Hey Krawler I just saw this post, I have a bunch of the tritons myself. I saw a video of a guy that is putting shimano calcutta 400 power handles on them. He was buying them from the factory when they were/are available. Most of the sellers on ebay want $30 for the handle which if you have a couple reels and really want to make the change could work. I have 8 reels so that is not a option for me at this time as they are used for my junk lines (lead core) and see limited use. Ebay does have some other power handles from over seas that may work but they are a 5x8 hole and will require an adapter which can also be found on ebay. The price is better but who knows about quality, not keen on the idea of buying directly from an over seas distributor. Hope this helps Terry
