  7. After 20 years in the bird hunting business its time to move on. Selling my training equipment. I have a remote control bird launcher (pigeon size), e collar, Quail harness, vhs training video, .22 cal blank starter pistol, 15' check cord. Spare annodes, antenna, batteries and tester.

  10. Was originally going to go with pvc boards over top of the carpet. As fate would have it, I found a Caliber bunk wrap kit on ebay for a price I couldnt refuse. Took the boat to a local lake and launched it. With the help of a buddy we installed the bunk wrap and end caps on the existing boards over top of the carpet. About a half hour job. Took the boat for a test run came back and loaded on the trailer. Must say it reduced the friction by about 50%. Made for a much easier winch job. All stainless screws were included.

  11. The sharkskin was mixed into the last coat of epoxy. Then applied with a roller. You can make it as rough textured as you like. Sherwin Williams 646 macro epoxy is used on offshore oil rig platforms. I figured if it would hold up in that environment it would work for my boat. I too was thinking of going with vinyl but after I saw how the sharkskin came out figured I didnt need vinyl. If for some reason I dont like the epoxy, I can always add the vinyl later. Good luck Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Hey Don, I'll lend all the moral support that you need. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I doubled the cutting board, making it 1" thick. Screwed it together with counter sunk screws from the backside with marine sealant around the edges. Drilled and countersunk four corners and drilled the transom. Sealed the holes with 5200. With that totalscan ducer at over $300, dont know if I would trust adhesive 100%. Sure to break something if it would break loose and be slapping around back there if you were under power. I dont plan on taking the pads back off anyway. Plenty of room to mover ducers around if needed. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Also about the most economical route as well. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Rollers have been known to dent aluminum hulls. Bunks offer a lot more support. The hull truth has several articles on using pvc, starboard, or similar plastics over wood bunks. Think I'm going to go that route. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. There's a lot of different options for slides that go right over top of the old carpet. I'm actually looking at making my 8' bunks into 10' to offer a little more transom support. Probably put pvc board right over the new 2x6x10. I have an aluminum hull so theoretically this should work as well as the slides Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Looks like this would be very similar to what the sliders are made from. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. I'm actually looking at 3/4" x 5" x 8' pvc trim board available at Lowes for about $20 ea. Says they can be cut and machined with normal woodworking tools. A bull nose edge could be routed on all edges. Screws counter sunk. These are made for outside use and have a 25 year warranty. I did find an article where someone made bunks out of these.

  19. Launching and recovering my boat is a bear especially where I cannot power it on to the trailer. It has carpet bunks. Was thinking of adding sliders over top the carpet. Have read where some people use pvc or composite deck boards. Anyone have experience with this? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Thanks rolmops. I cant imagine how much actual time was spent on it. Probably dont want to know. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. I absolutely love the xi 5. Have had no issues with it in 2 1/2 yrs and use it alot as an auto pilot to hold heading lock. Cant really say anything bad about Minnkota. Have buddies that have them and like them. I just did get the new lowrance carbon so havent got it tied into the xi5 yet. The elite 7 hdi was not compatible. I moved it to the rear starboard side. May link it to the carbon. A new Itroll speed control tied to the kicker rounds out my electronics. I think Im about done. Lol Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. I'm not sure if cold weather made for more denser foam or not. All told it took two 2 gal. units. I think the hardest part of the whole job was removing the contact cement from the sides. I found that adhesive remover from home depot worked but it was a lot of elbow grease. Ended up putting epoxy on sides using aluminum angle to transition from floor to sides and aluminum floor transition strips to transition to the carpet above the epoxy on sides.

  23. Painted the transom with untinted epoxy, installed 2 pads for the transducers. These were made from cutting board. Installed kicker. I also made storage boxes for the rear seats. Installed the rod holders. Now 6 months later, all that remains is to put on the big motor. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. The transom was still solid but did show some deterioration in a few small areas. Those areas were removed and replaced with epoxy coated ply. A 3/16" piece of aluminum was shaped and bolted to the outside of transom for extra support. I used the left over piece of aluminum to support the top of the bow where the motorguide xi 5 trolling motor is mounted. The front deck was still solid so I left it as is, but the sides of both consoles were rotted. So they were rebuilt and painted with epoxy. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I made a new rear deck that was also given 4 coats of epoxy. I used stainless piano hinges in the rear so the deck could be raised giving access to the battery and oil injector compartments. The deck was secured using jeep hood latches on each side. I made a new vinyl curtain and installed it with snaps. New battery tie downs secure batteries.
