  1. We fished Sodus last week too, did pretty well. Beheaded a few lampreys as well...The Carbon 14 spoon off the riggers was our best producer...
  2. I checked into it, unfortunately I would need a VIN # to register in Maine. I have searched all over this trailer, no VIN # anywhere...
  3. I see you did yours in 2010. I have heard it was literally as easy as you said back then. Something changed about 5-6 years ago, now they want you to get the weight slip 1st, then go to DMV with the slip, that form you showed plus a couple more, and receipts for the parts/pieces you used to build the trailer. I am not sure why the rules changed, except it's NY...Go figure!
  4. Yeah that's a little easier and more straightforward than the NYS process. I have to get the trailer weighed, get an official weight slip, then fill out a reg form and a homemade trailer form, and a sales tax/use form and take all that plus my receipts for what I spent building the trailer to the NY DMV and hope that it is all ok with them. I have spent about $400 total in parts to get it up to snuff, so hopefully they just accept it and register it as homemade....
  5. Looking for advice from anyone who has registered a boat trailer recently that didn't have a previous registration, and also no VIN stickered or stamped on the frame. I bought an older used trailer a few years ago knowing the PO didn't have the reg, and used it for a smaller 14' aluminum boat, just ran it with the plate and NYSI from my 17' boat trailer as needed. Now I am fixing up the trailer to sell as a package with the 14' boat and outboard, and I want to be able to offer it with a valid registration. I know I need to go to the CAT weight scale near me and get a certified weight slip, but the DMV info I am looking at says to be registered as "homemade" I need to supply receipts for the parts I used to build it. I have bought a few things like spray paint and replacement axle seals, but that's about it. How strict is that rule at the DMV in order to get the trailer registered? Thanks, Mike
  6. Beautiful Sunday morning to troll, took my nephew out for the 1st time. It is surprising how much the water temp changes with a south wind, we started in 85 FOW but didn't find that 44-48 degree water until we were out in 150 FOW or more! We went 2 for 4, with a nice eating size king and a beautiful spring steelhead. I think its safe to say my nephew is hooked now... Brody catch steelhead.mov
  7. I had the same issue last summer, 03.8 for temp on my X4D probe. It was out of warranty by 6 months, but I sent it in to Fish Hawk (Grayden Electronics is the actual name of the company I believe) and they said it couldn't be fixed, but they did offer me a sizable discount on a new probe. They also sent me back the old probe so if the new one craps out, at least I will have speed and depth...Although temp is really key variable I am looking for. I had a lengthy email exchange with Trevor, he did say there will be a new revision to the probe due out sometime this year to hopefully address the thermistor failure issues. He wasn't sure when exactly, but at least that tells me they are working on the problem. Overall I was really pleased with their customer service, but I was disappointed the thermistor crapped out after only 2 seasons of use...
  8. I didn't hear back from you, if you still have it let me know, I am interested in buying it.
  9. Sorry, this is just for the connector rod, I am using the motor mounts with a homemade connector rod thats much shorter than this one.
  10. Ez-Steer steering tie rod, this is the 10006 Ultra 34"-38" long in closed position. Used 1 + season, then switched up my kicker setup so this rod is now too long for my needs. Never adjusted the detentes, just ran it as it came from the factory.
  11. Garelick Eez-In outboard bracket, good for up to 20HP or 115 lbs. Could use some grease, otherwise good to go. $100
  12. I finally broke down and got rid of the 15 year old back to back seat on the port side, and added another fishing seat. Lots of room now in the back of the boat. I also tied in my kicker to my main fuel tank with an anti-siphon valve off the fuel/water separator. Pulled in the kicker closer to the boat with a homemade mount for my CMC power trim. And I bought a cushion for my cooler and fabbed some snaps on the cooler so it looks right. Still figuring out how to tie in the Raymarine ST1000+ auto pilot to my I/O, 1st step is to build a mounting box under the port side transom cover...
  13. Upgraded to a cap for my truck, don't need this any more. Fits 07-13 Chevy/GMC short box (5'9") quad cab pickups. May fit others as well, not sure. Pickup in Webster NY
  14. Hi just jumping on this post, I am doing the same thing to my boat. I was going to use a straight 1/4" ID fitting because my fuel/water separator has 2 outlets, and 1 just has a dummy plug in it. But I was going to use a line from the separator to my kicker with an inline squeeze bulb in it- will that essentially serve the same purpose as an anti-siphon fitting/valve? Thanks
