  1. I run the big john heavy's. I have used scottys but their clip doesn't fit it some balls. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I don't know what the life of a snubber is but I buy new ones every year. A lot of money hanging off the and their cheap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I like snubbers because they're easier on the hands. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. i love having a transom bar for the riggers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hopefully it all works out, I'm sure structurally it's fine it was never kept in the water and hasn't been in the water for 30hrs it whole life. Never out in weather. I am hoping to be in it for 10k when all done and rigged. A new main motor will put me over that by a long shot so I have to offer accordingly. The boat is literally in showroom condition inside and out its the main engine and wiring I'm worried about. I plan on buying a new kicker regardless of how the one that's on it runs.

  6. I am waiting for him to give me a time to go over and look everything over again and make my offer, I can't imagine that a 25 year old 2stroke kicker is worth 2500? I'll try and remember my camera and take some pics for you. He says it was winterized by the dealer before being put away for all these years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Probably not going to happen, sorry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Sry, the main has 11 and the kicker has 19. The kicker hrs are from his note pad he kept in the boat because it doesn't have an hr meter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. What I'm thinking is if I can have this boat water ready and rigged for under 12k I'm in good shape. What do you guys think it would be worth running and ready to go having such low hrs and in this shape? Sry no pics yet I didn't have my phone with me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I got word from my uncle that one of his friends was thinking about selling his old fishing boat so I went and looked at it and it is a 1991 Thompson 240 fisherman hardtop. Here's the crazy part 11 original hrs the thing is in a heated barn and has had a snap on cover over the back deck since 1992. When I opened the cover it was like walking into a time machine the thing Is in showroom condition with factory plastic film on the dash and seats and everything in the cuddy. It has a 350 that was winterized when parked and has 19hrs on it. It hasn't been ran since the spring of 92. I have no idea if the motor is still good or not although from the outside it is pristine as is he rest of the boat. It's sitting on a tandem axel trailer that is as pristine as the boat. It has a 15hp Johnson kicker that looks like it would on a showroom floor. My problem is what is the thing worth in its current condition? He isn't doing well health wise and doesn't want to mess with it so its an as it sits kind of deal so I would have to price it with that in mind. He told me to make him an offer but I don't have any idea what would be a fair value. I guess my big question is what is the hull worth assuming I would need all new wiring a new engine and outdrive. Any help is greatly appreciated. I want to give him as fair of an offer as possible but don't want to screw myself either. Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Did you send back the new style you have? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Is it for storing on the water or in the yard? I have went through a new cover every year for the last few years this year I put a roof of the side of the garage have less than 400$ in it and it should last the rest of my life. I even made it big enough for a bigger boat! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks, I guess it doesn't matter for now got a deal on a like new set of mag10stx's I couldn't refuse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have never actually checked it, I have my low voltage alarm on my FF set to 11.5 and it's never went off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have an old set of mag 10's that I'm replacing this year. I have ran scotties and like them but the digi 5's have really caught my eye. I fish alone most of the time and being able to set the depth hit the button and go do something else is really intriguing. I can't find any info anywhere on what new hummingbirds link to them either? Any of you guys run them and if so are they worth the extra money? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
