  1. Just start open tank on motor until full over flowing cap it and go fish. Only sensor is on your motor in the tank.
  2. And I'm glad I bought a duramax. I'm getting 17.5 mpg in town 22 on rt 90 my hemi would only get 13.5 mpg
  3. Slept on it! Decided on salmon country marina. That way I can go north east or west. And if I have motor issues I can come in on kicker and get it fixed.
  4. Well made my mind up! Oswego it is. It will be me and my sister in this 262. Its been out of the water since 2011 doing a shake down here at home on lake George this weekend. Hope to be out following weekend if no issues.
  5. For me Oswego is 3 hrs 3.25 depending on traffic. Takes me 2.5 to pulaski. How is it at Oswego for boat abuse with the wind? That's really my big concern. Where lil salmon is protected but you have that creek to contend with. Oswego is the waves and wind.
  6. Looking at slips at Mexico and writes. Can't decide!! Need pros and cons! I like fishing mexico west and the dunes.

    Stringers

    Popped main cover off and got below. 3 of the 4 motor mounts were loose. Two bolts nuts were missing got everything tight and started poking around. Stringer is fine at motor. I have a soft spot starboard side where drain hole is and the last 4 ft if the back. The side stringers are solid but where the holes were its soft. Found a wire hanger so there must of been something there. Never plugged the holes. So I'm running it!!

    Stringers

    Motor not sagging yet everything is straight. Got recommended to pour this stuff in the Stringers turns the soft wood into a rock. 100 bucks a qt. They use it allot on older boats. They tested it and use it allot I guess. So I'm going to try and hopefully get the summer no issues and take to someone in the fall. Mostly the bad is in the back where he drilled holes on the sides of stringers. And one spot in front of the motor where a drain hole is.

    Stringers

    Well I did it like a dink. Had a friend look at the boat I bought to make sure it was ok. He has owned 3 so i took his word in the purchase. Well the survey dink the previous owner had drilled holes from one end of stringer right back the other side. Never sealed Any of them. Well you guessed it! Rotten!! Grabbed my drill where there were no holes its fine. So I'm screwed. Deciding in how safe it is and if I can get the summer out of it and get fixed in the fall.
  13. Got the kicker running like at top. Ran like crap at first until I took out the e choke and made sure it was plugged in all the way. Ran great after that. Let it run in gear for a half hr or so. Going to put 50 gallons in it next week and run it.
  14. Not 100% sure he said he drained the tanks before he stored it. Its sitting nose up on the trailer so I don't think there is enough in there to read. Hoping anyways
  15. They are pretty empty I added 10 gallons of 91 and gauge still reads empty.
  16. She is alive!! The 454 rocks! 0421181414.mp4
  17. I got the 1199 thinking of taking out the lowrance and putting in a 997c there. Might set that up on a shoot threw hull. I just don't know where to put it with a inboard.
  18. Got some more work done this weekend. Had my friend over and rewired the main panel and shuffled electronics around to fit the 10 in bird.the carb for the kicker is getting cleaned i can't wait!!
  19. Put 10 gallons to her today started the 454 for the first time after some spit and sputters she came to life and idled for a bit. Had freshwater pump off didn't want to get carried away.the t 9.9 was a different story getting going but finally ran. It won't idle so carb cleaning in the am. Bowl was dirty and screen pretty much plugged. But for sitting since 2011 I'm happy!! New impeller for pump and let run for a while oil change then hopefully fishing next weekend!!
  20. Top pic is a si transducer and bottom is back of a 840. Hope these help
  21. The one on the left is the power and other is for something else?? I have and had a 997, 1197,1198 and now 1199 and never seen the round plug. Looks like a plug for a fishhawk 840
  22. Ok got another question. Back by the rudder is a small can the size of a small coffee can with a air pressure guage. What's it for and what pressure should it be? Looked for it online can't find it.
  23. Fishhawk and old 350a
  24. Tv is mounted weightpoints are added and map card ready for water soon!!
