    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.

    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 Stand up Bimini , mooring canvas, drop curtain canvas, side curtains. A couple pieces of Bimini windows are cracked and some hardware needs 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 . Good rubber , bearings and lights , comes with new spare . Could use coat of paint and jack is crapping out No fishing gear , kicker, or electronics come with boat . only reason for selling is just like every other boaters story ... bought a bigger boat !
  6. 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 !
  7. Would be great to hear your findings before I pull the trigger
  8. 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
  10. 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
  12. Is there a benefit to braid on a rigger ?
  13. 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 .
  14. Thanks Sarah ... holy fish !!! What a riot that musta been . The excitement on deck
  15. i don't have Facebook asking me to log in ..:: can't believe the hogs on that list . I caught a 26 lb and about teared up lmao
  16. Man... 39lb leader . Anyone get a photo of this ? Is he on here ?
  17. There is still time left in the year to get your popeye arms before winter!! cash or trade offer .. i try to be realistic
  18. Magna 30 drag I have a couple magna pro 30dx reels on rigger rods . I really dislike these reels . The drag is like an off switch.. its either too hard or to weak and seems like a tiny threshold between . Is there something I can do to remedy this ? Also is there any mod to make the clicker louder ?
  19. I'd like a hookup on just plain frozen herring , then could experiment. Where's them guys on the crab boats get them gigantic blocks of frozen herring ? Lol . Certainly they aren't paying $16 for 6 fillets !!
  20. Your right . with a north wind should be decent. Good luck and take lots of pics !
  21. Stony point puts you right in ... don't mistake the trench for shelter .. often rougher in there .. like a funnel . Have had days where was sick of getting beat up and headed to open water. ... i avoid the weekends ... a lot of boats bobbing around and seems 40% care what's going on around them
  22. Penn downriggers, mounts. And a couple blacks releases Two matching penn down riggers. With cable on them . One needs cable end hardware , i cut off a nasty section about two foot long. Come with fixed bases and all hardware . Nothing wrong with them . Tape residue on arm .. not sure what was taped there . $300 for the pair ? Or trade for other fishing gear also have two "blacks" releases . I didn't buy them and won't ever use them so make me an offer and they are yours. No idea what they go for . Look cheap. Im located north of Watertown. Will ship on your dime . In Watertown a lot .. could meet .
