    Expo roll call.

    Hell if it gets too ****ty we could run up a bar bill and stay an extra day.. lol
  4. I think it depends on what your pulling also the fish hawk has a lot of resistance and will not dive as deep with it on the line. I use an app called the Dipsy troller and have had pretty good luck with the depths. if the bottom is at 40 ft. and I let out line to get to 40 ft. ill hit bottom with my Dipsy fairly close to the numbers.

    Prop question.

    The boat has always been stored in doors. And it’s a solid core. (No water log) the boat has always had a problem getting up on plane. At wot it will hit 5800 rpms, I have checked it with a hand held tack and it’s accurate. My prop hub is not slipping. It seams like the prop is too small, not pushing enough water. If I cut the throttle down to 3000 rpms the boat will come off plane. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Prop question.

    I have 2- 16 props, 1 was brand new they both acted the same. They act like there not grabbing enough water. As for weight I have added a 9.9 4 stroke, but it acted like this before I put the kicker on. This winter I’m moving all my batteries up front hoping this helps.

    Prop question.

    I think I need a different prop. My boat is a bay-liner 2452 with a 5.0L engine. It’s a pretty heavy boat. When I try to get up in plane it takes for ever, I push the throttle to 5500 rpms and it takes about 5 minutes to get up on plane. Then I can back the throttle down to 4200 and it will be about 24 mph. I have a 16 pitch prop. I have to get up over 18 mph to get on plane. Yes I have my trim tabs down but it doesn’t seam to make any difference. Please help I’m not sure what pitch prop to try next?????? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    automatic trim tabs

    The thing I did t like about the automatic trim tabs. Mine worked off pressure, was you could not use them to level the boat, like from dragging a bag on one side or an uneven load. They did work great to get you up on plane faster but did nothing for leveling the boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Looking for kicker steering options

    Pantara steering. You steer with a remote. I use one on my boat. I can steer from anywhere in the boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
