    2018 Wilson Harbor Tourney Date

    There were 39 boats entered. in defense of WHI and not being up to speed with posting results etc. I believe the organizers just bought the restaurant and marina recently. So I am sure there hands are full getting both operations up and running, more so the Wilson Boathouse Restaurant as someone else had been running that ,unlike the Marina that Kevin had been managing. I wish them good luck with both businesses . The Tourney itself was fun and the weather was decent for fishing ! Just about everyone has full boxes unlike past years ,so big fish was the name of the game. Only one or two bigger fish in the box separated 2nd from 20th,very tight.

    Cheap Chineese Kicker

    Most impellers are shaped like spokes on a wheel when new and not installed. Once put in the housing the blades take on a permanent bend in one direction. Which is normal.... Ohhhh and I think the title of your post says it all !!

    Auto pilot question

    Have had great luck with the Raymarine EV 200. A little more info on the actual drive train would help. Not everyone is familiar with a 1988 Penn Yan Challenger. But a 350/twins etc. with a Mercruiser /Velvet drive/ Volvo straight inboard or outboard most will have some knowledge of. The actual boat brand means nothing.

    Adding another battery

    Dedicated deep cycle is the way to go. From what I understand kickers don't put out much amperage to keep one do all battery up to a full charge. Besides carrying 2 batteries I would also consider a pocket sized lithium booster pak. They work great and you can use it in your vehicle all off season.

    Talk me out of buying this sweet boat

    Not to hijack thread but,^ unless you buy a closed cooling system inboard from saltwater you should look in the mirror. OR you buy it cheap enough that the money you saved over a fresh water boat or raw water cooling more than off sets the cost of repower. I believe the OP wrote in another thread that he was planning on repowering in the near future if need be. Do your homework on what engines go for before buying a boat with a ton of hours, raw water cooled from saltwater or has low compression etc. I will put money on the OPs engines being trouble free due to salt water.

    Hydraulic steering Lines

    Besides this , now ( with this beautiful spring were having ) is a better time to address it. Picture a nice summer week that your off and you are all set for hitting it hard. Line let's go the first hour your out there and you spend the rest of the week waiting for a new line to show up. Fun, wow !

    Hydraulic steering Lines

    Depending on MFG and price/availability a local hydraulic repair shop might be something to look into. When I did my auto pilot add on's that's where I ended up.

    Sorry, looks like he was referring to the last post on page one as you noted. Sort of skips a beat when going to next page ,my bad.

    Your post on the top of this page states it was sold, bit confused as to why he would send pictures.

    Fort Niagara Boat Launch Project ???

    Not sure how floating "docks" finger piers would work in that open water. Just wondering if some big wake throwing boat cruising close by would create a unsafe condition when people may be loading/ unloading/ standing on floating structure ? Most floating docks / launch ramps are in a protected area. Yet I do agree that the engineers should be able to come up with something that is safe and USEABLE year round for that particular ramp.

    1st trip to lake O in 25 years.. help

    Have to agree with Final Flight. Oak Orchard and west to Wilson would be my go to choices for that time of year. Hard to go wrong fishing the Niagara Bar just about any time of the year.
