    How do you get fleas off

    Guy today mentioned spraying line/spool with something silicone based , depending on what you feel comfortable putting on your line. I am sure there is something that they use for cooking that would be ok. Again like my last post, I have not tried it, just relaying info given to me.

    How do you get fleas off

    Facebook-- Lake Ontario Trolling Discussion & Reports-- Posted today flat stick,like a 12" ruler,attach male Velcro to side of wood. Rub stick over tight line and fleas will stick to Velcro,then smack stick against something and fleas get flickered. Never tried it ,just relaying what I read.

    A-Hole with fireworks

    Sorry to see what they did. I would think the Marina's insurance carrier would cover it. To me its the same as leaving your car at a repair shop and finding it burned out the next day. The shop must cover it, even though they had nothing to do with the damage.

    Options on Alumacraft 19 ft

    Just used the search engine here and a 93 18 footer was gong for 5900 and a 96 190 Trophy was going for 9,500 with a kicker and maybe a few more options. So the asking price seems in line. Maybe if you showed up with 6 grand and said you have to buy tires and batteries etc, the boat may follow you home. Don't know the situation with the Marina and what services he paid for. A sea trial and good batteries may have everything working to your satisfaction. I wouldn't lose sleep over a few things that need repair , its a 24 year old boat.

    Wanted Volvo penta aq125a

    Don't forget to look under boat parts ,not just boats, as well. There was a bunch of stuff listed under Buffalo ,including 4-6-8 cylinder engines ,had them listed as Mercruiser and Volvo ,but didn't say what belonged to what.

    Prop damage!

    Wont cause engine damage. Will cause damage to prop shaft seals and possibly shaft carrier bearings/struts/couplers, depending on what drive system you have. Outboard- I/O -straight inboard.

    Pretty common engine for older Bayliners . There is one listed on Craigslist in Watertown ,boat motor trailer 1,000 Probably get it for 500 as its been listed for a couple months and hull looks shot. Use the search icon on Craigs and start out with bayliner and or Volvo and narrow it down from there , Select cities/towns your willing to travel so you can broaden your search area.

    Probably want to PM or get in touch with Hank from L& M Marine who is a moderator on here. The Craigslist engine looks pre trigger vintage.

    Mercury outboard distributor 4 cyl

    What went on it ? Gear ,bushing ? All the guts are available at NAPA or similar outlets. There is one complete engine listed under boat parts on Craigslist about 15 miles south of Oswego and he is parting it out . Not sure if under Syracuse or Rochester, I did a broad search. Using Mercruiser for the search icon. Probably get it for 50.00 or less.

    Cannon electric downriggers

    3 is the max I would put on and that's if it is a. I/O. Save one as a emergency backup . With cheaters dipseys and planner boards there is no reason to have 4 riggers.

    Gas mileage

    Generally speaking it should go on the port side. If your trolling into a beam sea and the waves are hitting your starboard side then the bag goes to the starboard side as well. I would think with your idle at 500 rpms no bags would be needed. Sounds like you have no way to measure down speed and are just guessing what to troll at. I guess all you can do is go by your GPS and hope for the best. Most of the time our GPS might read close to 3mph and the fishhawk is at 2.3 - 2.5 but down currents may cause it to go the other way. Trolling RPMs are generally around 600 and up, with no bags. If you have a I/O you can trim it all the way down and drop your trim tabs to slow it down a tenth or two. 2900-3100 is the sweet zone for cruising to the grounds. I will go from 1.5 GPH at 625- 650 rpms to 2 GPH at 750 rpms according to my fuel flow meter. That's on a 28 x 11 with twins and one 350 ci engine doing the work.
