  1. The Scotty's look like they are 2 - 3 times the footprint of a Magnum Metal .
  2. Have 3 on one of my boats , compact , pivoting boom , simple clutch design , everything is made very well . Have performed 100% going on 4 years . Also have 3 Traxstech on another boat , more features ( soft start and stop I love ) and a lot more money , there on a Charter boat . Have 2 Cannons on 17' Lund , and are the most " bulky " of the 3 and has the fixed booms which I am not a fan of . Basic weekend warrior ? Get the Magnum's . Hitting it hard and deep pockets ? Go Traxstech .
  3. Anyone with half a brain is going to use lead sinkers , looks more natural as in " must of been fouled hooked before and ate the sinker " which is heavier than steel and won't show up with a metal detector. Any Charter Captain in a tournament is not going to bend any rules or cheat , there reputation is worth a lot more than ever being accused of cheating . One team on a tournament trail out of the how many thousands of teams that do tourneys cheat and now this has to be even discussed is numbing. Leave it as is and let the organizers handle it . All the tourneys on Ontario are above board .
  4. Each tourney , derby is run by a different entity . So it's up to each one of them to change any rules for there own event . I personally do not foresee any of O's events rules being changed because of what happened in Walleye tourney series that is much different animal than O's individual tournaments or derbies . If they want to cut open every fish that is weighed in say in a Lake wide derby that might last for 2 - 4 weeks or the whole season it isn't easy to control . I've had gas jockeys weighing fish who didn't know the species and why should they ? Could go on and on. Don't think one isolated team of cheaters is going to affect the rules on Ontario tourneys . Organizers can decide themselves if they want to open them up for inspection at weigh in which I believe are already in there rules .
  5. I would Google a schematic for it and see if it is a replaceable part . Might want to break down any other bases you have like that and re- tighten using a light or medium grade lock tight . I have seen many cannon bases that are wobbly until I chastise the owner of the boat to repair them before everything goes to Davey's locker .
  6. Please put radar on your boat if you fish Ontario . I cannot believe the IDIOTS that leave port in a fog or get caught in one that are in small boats without radar . It's a death wish for you to be out there without radar in a fog . And it's not fun when I am looking at my radar and some IDIOT without radar is on a fast collision course heading towards my boat . You are also out there in Lake Freighter shipping lanes , they ain't stopping or moving when your little blip shows up on there screen . My million dollar question is , what's your life worth ? Less than 1,500 then skip radar . Mine is worth more so I have it on my boats .
  7. 4 Mile State park has those Utes for around 40.00 per night . Heat ,air , fridge , sleeps about 6-8 people ,one big octange type tent on a wooden platform . Then rent a slip at the state park in Wilson .
  8. Dublin Up Marine may have one , give Carl a call .
  9. The motors are basically windshield wiper motors , they do not draw much amperage the.way they are geared . Run a separate deep cycle and charge it when sitting in your driveway .
  10. Why in the world would you want to replace it with obsolete stuff , that drive hasn't been made in 30 years . Going to be a major head ache . V - 8 volvos are GMC engines with Volvo exhaust manifolds and that's about it . I would find a donor boat and go Mercruiser for the outdrive . At any rate your outdrive hole will probably need some fabrication for a replacement drive
  11. Only outlet for that model is used , garage sales , marketplace,Craig's . I have new and original model and as noted the 1101 is a better rod . The guides are plastic lined vs all SS and action is notably different with the new one , not as good .
  12. In the 40 years of selling tools and equipment to garages I have never ever witnessed a mechanic use a multi meter to check a battery , even if they did not have a load tester. As a matter of fact I just left a shop where they had a battery that showed 12.6 , put a load tester on it and that showed 62 amps out of a 200 amp battery. Not going to work on a starter that draws more than that number .
  13. Voltage and amperage are two different animals. I can put 8 D cell volt batteries in a series and get 12 volts , not going to start your engine . A multimeter is pretty much useless in giving you the actual condition , it's all about the amps . How many amps does your starter draw ? I have a good idea , do you ?
  14. Hardly a drop in the bucket and it all ran into running creeks that were warm or storm drains , that dump into the warm creeks . Like putting one ice cube in hot water in a bathtub and saying that will cool it off . Mother nature will self correct. Last year someone put up a post about it not being frozen over in January. Yep it froze over a week or so later .
  15. Rent a limo ?? Or hire a bus ?? Doesn't sound like your going to find a Van .
  16. Snake oil salesmen . Been putting boats / engines away for over 50 years and have not fogged and or oiled the cylinders . Never had a issue , engine is only sitting for 6 months and oil resin is on the cylinder walls from normal use .Gas stabilizer takes care of the EFI system.
  17. Moeller is one well known mfg . Pull the tank and look for a mfg name on it . Your going to need the dimensions at any rate , so out comes the tank .
  18. Sold the Rampage , kept the Whaler ,( per reply up a few post). If the offer was right , way over the asking price as the market has drastically changed since it was listed ,I might sell her . Looking at what's on the market and quality of those boats puts this around 35, -40,000.00 all day long . I have fished extensively on 27 - 29 Tiaras , 28' Rampage , 30' Pursuit , 28 ' Albemarle, all about the same class boat . The Whaler is a better fishing boat than all of the aforementioned boats , hands down , the rougher the better , including the ditch ,it is a tight fishing rig .. Anyone that passed on the original listing blew it . Have a nice day !!
  19. Uhh they appear to be around 14 , not a good look .
  20. Adding weight has never helped any boat go faster , period . How do you know for sure what motor or motors where on it when it hit 18 mph ? Does the display say what motors are on it for different speeds ? Lose as much weight as you can , foils will cause more drag because your UNDERPOWERED for the umpteenth time.
  21. Previous owner took the chargers with him and left the 110 wiring . Not rocket science.
  22. Yes ,osmoses I believe it's called. Metal will start to pit. And usually it's a lot heavier.
  23. Do not use any wood that is pressure treated .
  24. Air doesn't freeze. Best to drain correctly and if compressed air is available blow it out . Pink stuff is good for fresh water system. If you use the pink crap for whatever reason in engine block , I wouldn't count on it not freezing under extreme cold . Have seen it expand when put in freezer.
