  1. I plan to fish, I plan to hunt turkeys. I plan to go to the grocery store if I need something. I don't plan to feel guilty about it. I see absolutely nothing wrong with doing outdoor activities. So, we have someone telling us a kayak is ok, but my boat isn't. Good Grief.
  2. Just got my phone call returned this morning. The boat ramp is open. Launch at your own risk. No overnight docking without a reservation. Please don't ask me about the fish clean station, or the bathroom. He didn't say. Just assume and plan for them being closed. I will be social distancing on the lake soon, weather permitting.

  3. I think those who are dealing with it every day face to face have a skewed view of the reality of the Virus as far as death rate and the danger. You are on the Frontline and if you are in a hot spot, you're perception is based on that. I respect doctors and nurses and all who expose themselves to give care to others. I believe far more people have the virus, or had it and recovered. Therefore, the rate of death is comparable or even less than the Flu. We already know the models were way off. Predictions of 2 million deaths have been lowered to 60000. The US had 61000 flu deaths in 2017. So, while I appreciate your service, I don't think you see the big picture, because you are in the hot spot. We need to open the economy before we go into a depression. Sweden is a good example. California has far fewer cases than NYC though Chinese travel to CA is far more frequent. Why? Could it be immunity? Bottom line: we can't allow millions to go into abject poverty and lose their homes, their livlihoods. We overreacted over an abundance of caution. It's time to recalibrate.

  5. Great day!. What ramp did you launch from? My boat and me are ready but I read that the launch Ramps are closed. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. I don't recall saying it was scientific evidence. Just an acute observation he made about California, which apparently you also noticed, and a mention of a theory. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Rush Limbaugh had the exact same Question about California weeks ago, asking why isn't California the epicenter? It has by far the most travel to and from China. He said one theory is herd immunity. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. People: Let's keep our eyes wide open: Bill Bennett said this morning you have a point .2% chance of getting Covid 19. If you get it you have a 98% chance of getting over it. In 2017 we had 61,000 deaths from the FLU. Models now estimate we will have 60000 deaths from Covid 19. Remember these models started out saying we will have 2 million deaths! Dr. Blix said no matter the cause of death, people dying that test positive for Covid are being counted as a Covid death. Rand Paul got it, and recovered. He had NO symptoms. He said in Iceland everyone was tested and they found 50% of people that have it had no symptoms. Yes the Virus appears to be highly contagious. Yes it is strange because some people die, some have no symptoms, and children don't seem to be affected, generally. Yes there's exceptions. Yes, elderly or people with high blood pressure or heart disease are more at risk. So consider: It started in China. Possibly man made in a Lab there. China is in a trade war with Trump. The world, and most importantly for us, the United States has shut down the entire economy. The Economy, that under Trump broke every record since records were kept, in just 3 years. The media has sensationalized this, just as they have sensationalized any thing else that might reflect poorly on Trump. There has already been ongoing Coup attempts since the inauguration. Is it any surprise they would use this as another opportunity? Democrat Governors and the media have scorned the use of hydroxochloroquine, because Trump said it was good! It is widely known, both here and in France, that it is an effective treatment. Rand Paul said doctors often prescribe off label drugs that effective at something other than what they are marketed for. Bill Gates has ties to Chinese pharmaceutical companies and is trying to get a vaccine to market, all the while poo pooing an Approved drug for Covid treatment, hydroxochloroquine. He'll be the first one to push a possibility understated and possibly dangerous vaccine! Dr. Fauci said in February we have nothing to worry about. Now he says the sky is calling and any attempt to restart the economy will result in reemergence. He has Political ties and Support to Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party. The Democrats have used this as way to change voting laws, get more funding for abortions, And many other projects and policies that would alter the course of the nation, having nothing to do with the Covid outbreak. A quarantine used to be for sick people, of people who are at risk. Under tyranny, healthy people are also under quarantine. People are losing their business. People can't pay their bills. Unemployment is now 17%. So consider EVERYTHING. And Question EVERYTHING, and be Skeptical about EVERYTHING. I am saying this is being sensationalized. I am saying the facts are not being reported. I am saying Governments and media propaganda machines are overreacting, possibly with an agenda we are too familiar with by now. I am saying drugs that likely work on many people are being witheld because of political hatred. Ventilators are being returned in new York now because they aren't needed. Remember a week ago Cuomo was screaming for 40k Ventilators. I am saying the closing of boat ramps is NOT warranted, and many other things are NOT needed. Check out Switzerland. No Nationwide quarantines. Getting along fine. 50000 people die each year on the highway. No panic. A plane crashes and 100 people die and it's hyped to no end. Compare this to the Flu, and Covid.

  10. Back in service just in time for the boat ramps to be closed. The gasket fixed it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. No, this is not selfish at all. It's called common sense. If a person fishes alone, or fishes with only those in his own household there is no reason that person should be prevented from fishing. The executive order is too broad, and could have provided some exceptions. Restaurant's are closed, so your concern there is moot. Ever heard of pack your own, or drive through windows? Gas stations have pay at the pump. I rarely if ever go inside. I launch my boat, fish, and recover my boat by myself. No human interaction. Now when we ordered door dash the other night, I had interaction with the individual that brought the food. They had no mask, no gloves. COMMON SENSE.

  12. 20,000 members being prohibited from recreational pursuits is definitely UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Psychologist and Other doctors have said recreational activity is healthy, and relieves stress. This total shutdown is government overreach by any standard. I fish alone 80% of time. No interaction at all except to pay my ramp fee. That could be worked out.

  13. My friend said Cayuga lake boat ramps are closed. He lives there. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. OLCOTT closed?????? All of this is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. I remember during the Obama government shutdown the Iroquois national Wildlife refuge was closed! Not just the welcome center, the woods and Swamp had closed signs posted. Disgusting. I fish alone. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Has anyone found a reasonably priced shock Absorbing Seat? The only ones I see are over $300 each. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. It's probably plywood, with fiberglass over it. Easy fix. Remove rotted area of plywood. Replace plywood. Sand the area for good adhesion. Re fiberglass using a repair kit from AutoZone or home Depot. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Yes sir, times a wasting! Glad I bought the seloc maintenance manual. Very helpful. Hopefully the Covid won't delay shipment of the gasket. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Looks to me like a gasket. Ordered 2 just in case. $26 See pictures. Thanks for the help guys!
  19. I'm screwed. Water shooting out from the gasket between power head and lower skeg assembly. See pictures. I forgot to lower motor in the fall, discovered I had left it tilted up in towing position halfway through winter. Motor starts right up and seems to idle like it always did though. Maybe it's just a gasket? My season is now over. Rebuilt transom last year now this. I have no idea how to separate power head from skeg. 175 HP EVINRUDE 1993. This Motor ran flawlessly. I am disgusted with myself. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Thanks for the replies. I'm going to take apart the lower cowling in the am and inspect it. Only way to know.
  21. Started the motor today. Water is coming out of the cowling area on the left side. Nothing in the engine compartment. See picture. You can see water dripping from the plastic cover above the steering link straps left side. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. I was thinking mud July too. Thanks for all the help.
  23. Just make sure no money changes hands unless the airplane is operated under a FAA part 135 Air Carrier Certificate. To charge for a flight requires an Air Carrier Certificate. There are exemptions for cost sharing of fuel and ramp fees though, for a non certificated carrier. Be safe.
  24. I encourage everyone of you to purchase this little book. I did eight years ago. The opening introduction exactly describes what is happening. Most aren't prepared for anything. Hence the panic. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
