  4. Didn't get on the water at all last year . Whats a good upgrade from the Diawas?
  5. What are the best reels for steel line or does it matter? Have been thinking about setting up a steel set-up for a couple of years. I have a few Diawa LC-47s and a few Okumas. Not sure what model Okumas. Anyone want to make a recomendation?
  6. Most trailers come with offshore bearings these days. Same with most hubs you buy. Good bearing shop is like a good tackle shop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Take the bearings out and inspect them. Seals are cheap. Loosing a set of bearings may not be if one of your wheels passes you going down the highway and hits something or someone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Less than 20 minutes for a lightweight type 5 construction building. Type 1 is different . That being said the fire load was extreme from the fuel on board. It would have taken handcuffs and chains to get those firefighters to leave before the towers came down.

  11. Works off of your steering. Motor goes underneath the dash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Bought a HDS-7 Gen 3 to run it. $900 Canadian from Radioworld in Toronto. Package works awesome. Good luck finding the Autopilot fo $500 Canadian though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  16. I have a custom aluminum trailer from Ace Trailers in Gibsonton Florida. My spare is mounted on a bracket with a spindle on it. There is a spare hub there with the spare mounted to it. Great idea. Just sharing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. I work as a career firefighter. We have 6 boats. 4 career and 2 part time. Couple of years ago same crew dumped the same boat of the trailer twice. Supposed to be professional.[emoji31] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. To late to do anything about the water level now. Figures I saw last year says it takes 6 weeks to drop the lake level 4”. On the bright side , the Ottawa River does not look like it is going to be near as bad as last year so all things being equal, the Seaway should not have any reason to shut the gates at Massena to keep from flooding TabernackTown.

  23. So guys. I have 28 years in as a firefighter. Spend my time flipping from in charge of a 104’ tower and a single axle pump. 4 guys on the pump, 3 on the tower. This is what we are told. When we do any calls we are wearing our scba. Masked up. If you are wearing a mask, that’s great. The only mask that will protect you is an N-95. If you are wearing a surgical mask ,you are wearing it to protect other people from yourself. A surgical mask will not protect you from Covid 19. You can google the facts. We are not a large department as departments go but have 900 career firefighters and 400 part time on call. This is how we are running our calls. Nothing to do with fishing but this is what I practice. With all due respect. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  25. Nautitroller ,I respect the fact that you are standing up for something you believe in. Most civilized countries are that way because someone took a stand and drew a line in the sand and said this is where it stops. If there were only one or two people running around , there would be no problem. Unfortunately there are still masses that don't get it. It only took one or two people to put NYC where they are today. It will take the same to contaminate Upstate New York. I have $1000s of $$ in tackle boats kayaks and a camper as well. At this point I am willing to sacrifice and stay at home for now. If you find a launch that is open , I hope you do well. Everyone is entitled to their opinion , but at the same time, eveyone can take their opinion to the coffee shop along with around $2 and they will give you a large coffee. Also opinions are like a$$holes. Everyone has one. The last I heard was that Covid 19 is 3 times more contagious than the flu. Keep your hands clean and don't touch your face. Words to live by these days.
