    Make sure you get a 72" shaft on your trolling motor. Don't even consider the 60" shaft, I have had the 72" come out of the water on occasion. My dealer installed the 60" on the boat and I didn't realize it until I drove back home almost 5 hours away. They mailed me the correct motor and I sent the other back.

    196 fishmaster f200 Yamaha

    I have the 18 pitch yamaha reliance series prop on mine. It tops out at 50mph with 2 guys and full tank of gas, hole shot is great. I bought a 17 pitch reliance as a backup and I lose about 3 mph on the top end with that prop and the hole shot is marginally better. The 18 pitch maxes out rpms at wide open throttle and has a great hole shot so that is what I use. The boat should come pre wired for the trolling motor. The batteries are mounted in the compartment that is furthest forward on the floor in front of the livewell. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Remote DC power

    You can just buy a small 12v battery that they sell at the box stores and run it off that. Same batteries are used to run electronics when ice fishing, they cost around 20.00. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. Same year and color as mine but I went the yamaha F200 and 9.9. Tops out at 50 with two guys and full load and 45 - 46 with 4 guys on a flat lake. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I would highly suggest buying one with at least a 150hp motor on it if you are going to fish with more than 2 guys. I personally know someone that had to upgrade to a 150 after being sold the boat with a 115 Mercury on it from the dealer, it was a dog with a full load.

    ISO new deer hunting firearms

    Smokeless muzzleloader is the way to go. I bought a savage model 10ML II 20 years ago when they first came out. Shoots as good as a rifle with hardly any kick at all. I shoot 43 grains of powder with a muzzle velocity of 2100 fps. They dont make them anymore last I heard. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Electril drill and battery. Good deal!

    FYI, Ridgid has lifetime replacement warranty on tools and batteries if you register them online. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    What he said. I doubt you will find a more accurate slug gun once u find out what slugs it likes. Accu tips are another good option for slugs with this gun.

    You should get back about half or a little less of a deer dressed weight back in boned out meat. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Boat touch up paint

    Call starcraft themselves. I spoke to a lady there and she found the paint code and actual paint that they use and offered to ship some to me at a reasonable price.
