  1. Couple more weeks and it will be getting winterized . Any interest or offers ?
  2. pap,, trailer does come with, 84 teenee tandam axle. transom appears to be solid. im not a marine surveyor by any means.. but I do have family climb swim ladder, my kicker motor pulling on it, and it has no flex or stress cracks. When i mounted the kicker bracket the wood shavings that the drill pulled out were dry . i also strap the boat to the trailer with the rear hooks and they are very sturdy.. i know typically with a soft transom all the brackets are bending towards the force. as for hours, i will have to get back to you on that, i am really not sure what the hour meter above the doghouse reads off the top of my head.
  3. I would consider . I’m open to wheelin and dealing... id really hate to store two big boats this winter .
  4. Goes with unless not wanted .
  5. 1984 Penn Yan 210. Boat is in great shape for the year. I purchased a couple years ago and have had nothing but good times with it. I bought off the original owners family, comes with all original purchase paperwork and manuals. 3.8 4 bbl 185hp v6 omc. Stand up Bimini , mooring canvas, drop curtain canvas, side curtains. A couple pieces of Bimini hardware need replacing, plastic brackets showing age. Seats are nice , has the removable rear seats , some of the interior pieces are in need of attention , but overall great shape for year. Last year I had outdrive boot and impeller replaced for peace of mind . Solid boat. 84 teenee tandem axle trailer . No fishing gear , kicker, or electronics come with boat . Can get better pictures in next couple days if there is interest . Boat is still being fished on the weekends . Would like to strike a deal before it gets put away for winter only reason for selling is just like every other boaters story ... bought a bigger boat !

    Anyone use a tablet for navigation?

    Great info everyone thanks so much . Chowdaire that's exactly what I'm after . .. stoneam thanks for reporting your findings . I think i will start my search for a decent tablet with internal gps and give it a go . Surely it'll be cheaper then buying another unit just for more screens . LOL. I feel stupid complaining about switching screens or it's not big enough !! Technology spoils you !

    Anyone use a tablet for navigation?

    I also had navionics on my phone but wasn't sure if it worked because of my cell service, so not clear if a tablet would do the trick , so in theory as long as I purchase a tablet with an internal gps and download the offline maps I should be all set ?
  9. I don't want to keep flipping screens or splitting my screen this year , and seems kind of overkill to but another expensive unit . I have the lakemaps card for my humminbird and I love it . However I'd like to have something else so I can have one whole display of sonar and other of map/contours . Does anyone have any experience using any of the navigation apps on a tablet ? Was thinking a nice big tablet with a mount would do the trick . I wasn't sure how reliable or accurate this would be . Also would the tablet have to be on a active carrier to do the real time tracking ? Or Is this handled by some sort of internal gps device ? Thanks all for any insight

    Dogs

    Don't matter what boat , or water , be it canoe , bass or out on Ontario . Mines almost always with me . Although he is very trained and obedient! On hot days he will cuddle up on the floor of the cuddy where I have a fan going . Or he gets hit with the wash down . Make sure they have a way to drink ! . Mine wears a life jacket that has a pick up loop on the back and I tie him off to the boat with a 20' section of rope . So in the chance he ever found himself over I could reel him in . . Mines a great fishing companion , just hangs out and takes in the scenery . And he knows when action is happening to stay out of the way . Of course If your dog is hyper and won't listen I can see it being a miserable PITA
  11. Are those risers painted steel or aluminum ? Hard to tell from photo . If aluminum I will take

    Magna 30 drag

    I understand. Out of all the reels on the boat these two magnas serve as backup or don't feel like re-tying reels . Didn't know if there was a way to remedy it . i have cheap convectors and daiwas that work fantastic .
