  1. Two part epoxy should do the trick. Should be on the suction side so not a lot of pressure on it. At the very least it should buy you some time while you track down a replacement if your not happy with the epoxy.
  2. They work off a pressure pump like a RV. Yes you should have switch to turn the pump on. Either by the electric panel or on your dash. When you turn it on you may want to turn the faucets on and off to get the air out of the system . If there are any leaks in the system the pump will run when it senses the water pressure dropping. Other than that you leave the switch on for the day just like the raw water wash down pump ,except its drawing from your tank.
  3. No , you need two separate transducers. You should be able to display one FF screen on the other but only one FF is in operating mode. They do make a splitter allowing you to cut your wires and match them up. The wirescare color coded ,similar to a radio. I ended up going on thehulltruth.com. and posting up got the color match up reply in a few hours. Ebay , wakezonemarine was the seller , 28.00 total , ..... Airmar inline Cable Splicer kit IP 67 10 conductor waterproof.....was how it was titled.
  4. I am going to put a vending machine on my rig , making sure it's stocked with breakfast sandwiches, coffee, beer , bait and now that pot is legal I am going to have a " special " row of high end stuff so I can maximize my profit while trolling for Kings , which is apparently the secondary reason for going out on Lake Ontario.
  5. Ya got that right. once the cruise ship Norwegian Wood ties off in Olcott and the buffet line opens up count me in for some breakfast on the Princess Line flagship. I know the charter captains have nothing else to do but worry about breakfast and that's what the clients are really there for., screw the Kings ,I need me some breakfast !!!
  6. What in the world are you talking about ? This guy is obviously coming in from out of town with a boat ,not doing a charter. To suggest that the charter boat people could or should prepare breakfast is ludicrous. How many head boats are there in Olcott or on Lake Ontario . I guess the legalization of marijuana has kicked in ,Haha
  7. Well deadlake , in this day and age if you have zero access to a cell as in no friends, no co-workers and no relatives but yet you have a computer and internet to be able to respond it leaves me speechless. I am so sorry that you are without a phone. Smart remark ? noting that he had 2 numbers listed and maybe you should call him ? That smart remark ?
  8. He has his name and 2 phone numbers . How hard is it to read that and pick up the cell and call if your that interested
  9. While I understand the C + Release aspect in some species and started doing this successfully with Muskys back in the 80s I also understand the weight aspect along with stocking programs . If bass can be weighed ,not measured and released to win a tourney why can't any other fish do the same thing ? About the only species I can think of on the Great Lakes that measurement takes the win is Muskys and Northerns. I take exception to your " kill events " . Every Captain I have seen in these "kill events " makes sure the meat harvested is not thrown out. Last Atomic Tourney I did in Oswego NY , Tom Allen ,the promoter had a local Veterans group collecting Salmon that Teams would give to them . You also have a well stocked and natural reproduction class of game fish on the GL that are there for a reason $$$ . Collected by bordering states and they will adjust the stocking programs accordingly. I still may sign up just throwing mine and probably a few other people's thoughts out there on length vs weight and length ( if need be for tie breakers along with 1st one in the boat ). Thanks for your reply.
  10. Really needs weight ,not just length to make any sense out of it . You could have 100 entries say , Kings , with the same length. Who wins that ? 1st entry ? No thanks .
  11. The problem with that is she will be expecting you home earlier to possibly do more yard work.
  12. " They " is we the people ,that pay taxes and in this case, the electric bill. Just another scam by the state to take your money. Just like the Thruway and Peace Bridge doing away with tolls after the construction bonds were paid off. Never going to happen. Delaying spring is messing with Mother Nature , buds ,schmuds.
  13. Who told you this ? Or is it something that you came up with on your own ? Before the boom when the ice chunks came down the river they would on occasion scrap the bottom and self dredge the river as well as taking out weeds and what not. Yes some docks would take a hit ,but that's on the owner's for putting them in harm's way. Do away with the boom.and let mother nature dictate it's own course. You know the big money power authority would not let this happen. Somewhat surprised the environmentalist have not put up a law suit against them. It messes with our ( farmers ) springs for starters. Really doesn't help the upper river's ecosystem and yes, those that live close to the now colder lake burn more fuel heating our homes , which contributes to your global warming with all that carbon monoxide being pumped into the ozone.
  14. So how's this " global warming " BS looking now ? Weather report yesterday was for at least 75% ice coverage by this weekend. I do not see any above freezing temps forecast for the next 10 days. I am glad climate has changed over the centuries, otherwise we would still be in the ice age ,,,,and I wouldn't be alive. Updated as of 2/11 cover is now 80 % and should be 100% in a few days.
  15. Ok , I'll bite , no one else has replied. Not sure why the Cannon's won't auto stop if the trolling motor battery is grounded to your main motor. If not grounded I would do that and they should work. A Dual.Purpose group 27 battery is what I would replace your existing battery with. Might get some arguments on this , I believe there are 4 or 5 Mfgs and they just slap different decals on them , NAPA , Delkab ,Walmart and so on. Most of the time I get about 3 years out of any brand and that's with a 3 bank charger on them as soon as I dock.
  16. Everything you have written suggests you either take it to a recycling place or throw it in trash can. The cost to have it fixed is more than it's worth. No brainer.
  17. Marshalls Machine.com or Michigan Motorz .com might be a good place to start. Have read a few negative reviews on Jasper engines.
  18. 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.
  19. 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 !
  20. Wouldnt mind trading in the wife for a newer model .
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
