  1. Funny, I've been so busy at work lately that I haven't had any time for the boat. I just got on here now and you guys posted within the last 4 hours. Strange timing...


    Anyway, instead of the Garelick 71094 I think that I'm going with the 71091. It has the same travel but can handle heavier motors, it seems.  Cheaper, too... The only difference that I noticed is that the 71094 is 11 1/2" wide and the 71091 is 8 1/8" wide. The clamps on my 15 hp are 5 1/4" wide. 

  2. Thanks again, all...


    I ended up buying a 2011 Mercury 15hp 4- stroke long shaft. The guy threw in a bunch of extra stuff (cables, controls, extra starter, electric start, extra pull start, etc...) all for $900. 

    I'm definitely taking your advice and will be buying a solid aux motor bracket!

  3. Thank you all for your thoughts! 


    I haven't had a chance to think about this recently, apparently, I'm "essential".


    I have a local guy that has a Tohatsu 15hp long shaft with electric start, tilt and controls for $900. I just messaged him for the model year. He says that it's been properly serviced, etc, etc... 

  4. Well....I ended up leaving her at home. An hour on the road and full on regret set in, of course. I talked to a buddy from up this way and he said the no wake zone was still in effect. Strike one. Talked to the owner of the house/dock and they said a previous renter brought their boat and docked it but the bigger waves beat it up. Strike two. Had to divert during our trip up adding a few hours to the trip. Strike three. 

    Of course, since we arrived I've been watching people water skiing, tubing and just generally tearing around the bay. WTF? 

    So, my other buddy is supposed to come up Wednesday. I called him and told him to run by my place and bring the boat with him. Unfortunately, before I left the house, I put a new locking pin on the trailer and the keys are sitting in my center console. Here. With me. FML.



  5. Thanks, all. We are up on the east side, south of Eagle Island. I guess that was part of my hesitation, the long run out to the lake. I'll be stuck dropping in and pulling out basically by myself. (My wife is less than useless...lol) I've got a buddy coming up on Wednesday so maybe you're right, any fishing is better than no fishing.

  6. Hey all, I'm heading up to Sodus Bay this Sunday and staying for a week with the family. The cottage we have rented has a dock but, it is now under water. I have a 20' Grady that I was gonna drag up and dock it there. Question is, is it worth dragging up from philly area if I'm going to need to drop in and out everytime I want to go out? Thanks for your thoughts...
