  1. In the future I would suggest going with Ugly Stick DR rods. A lot of Charter Captains use them , not saying there word is gold. I run them off the two boats I use and could not be happier. Great action ,unbreakable on the water , tips are touching the water when you load them up and with the light action a ball to catch any size fish out there.
  2. Instead of a fish camp buy a 75' + Viking ,Post ,Bayliss and live on it. That way you don't have to drive to the camp , walk from the camp to the boat. pay taxes, mow the lawn , fix the roof , worry about neighbors and your gear can be left out and ready to go saving you more time !
  3. Wouldnt mind trading in the wife for a newer model .
  4. Port side just about where your red line is on the stern . Long enough boom to get it about centered when you have the swivel base angled at 45* . Make sure the swivel base when locked ar 45* puts the end of the boom.over center. Might have to adjust the base so it's not exactly " squared to get the boom centered when locked in place .The gunwale rigger mount on the port side will be ahead of the hawes plate so you will have some room in the corner. Recently set up a boat with the same configuration, worked out great this past season.
  5. I will keep that in mind the next time I am fishing in the British Cayman Islands for sure !! Being part of the British Commonwealth does not translate into the same laws . From what I understand going into Canadian waters illegally may result in confiscation of your boat along with fines and deportation. Pretty sure everyone on here is well aware of what's going on and to stay in there homeland waters.
  6. They are They are not asking a question in this case and if they had one to ask they should start a new post . My post is a complaint ? Try reading it again. It's a statement in case you can't comprehend what I wrote.
  7. Uhhhh,,, this is almost a 3 year old thread.
  8. Two year old thread , Blonkos has a habit of quoting a reply or post and nothing else. Scammer of some sort ? Bberke try starting a post with your particular issue instead of jacking / piggybacking this 2 + year old thread.
  9. Try Google , Fiberglass repair
  10. I would be afraid to run a outboard conversion to jet drive in anything less than 2 ft of water. How far down does the drive sit in the water vs a inboard that picks up and discharges water along the hull line ? Based on that I do not see the upside of using one in this part of town. Most people fishing that shallow are casting and maneuvering with a electric trolling motor. To each his own.
  11. Uhh they have been mfg for decades .There have been at least 3 FG ones made powered by jet ski motors, including Polaris and either BW and or Sea Ray. The NW is loaded with aluminum ones powered by GM blocks. Can't see trolling with them , very inefficient as well. No thanks.
  12. Captain Bob's on Main st in Clarence . Should be on Facebook if you want to call first.
  13. Barrier coat the hull and then paint it if you want to prevent growth. I use a ablative paint. You will not get any growth on the thru hull as it is located midship and will not see anysunlight which is where your algae is at it's worst. Now I just paint the transom ,waterline and bow area , pretty much where the sun hits the hull , the bottom will get touch ups if needed but nothing grows there without the sunlight.I also used blue paint for my first coat over the barrier coat the covered that with black , now I know where to touch up if need be. Not sure if you will be marking fish or bait while on a high speed plane. Never had any luck with that on my 3 thru hulls in various boats over the last few years.
  14. While I agree about using life jackets while going out solo I also don't presume he wasn't wearing one. Most sail boaters I see are wearing them ,more so than fishermen .Usually they have a safety cable that is attached to the cable railings as well . Could of been a medical thing and until they find the body I would not rush to judgment . Could be in a life jacket floating out there .RIP.
