  1. I have replaced a couple of transoms in aluminum boats and the ones we did were just through bolted to stringers and supporting structures. I know nothing about the material you are talking about but make damn sure that it is ok to use against bare aluminum and will not corrode it. Dont be afraid to use plywood again , after all it has lasted over 20 yrs. This is not a small job but is quite doable. The floor in my experience is harder as most go under sides and fasteners can be hard to get to. Good time to replace all fuel lines and vents also. Good luck. These are great boats that a guy can pull and trailer around !
  2. I had 2 surveys done last year on 2 different boats buy 2 different surveyors. It was very eye opening. I can tell you that if i was buying a boat that Shawn Bartnett is the guy that i would suggest.He was very thorough and knowledgeable.I wont say who other guy was . Bartnett Marine Services 585 624 1380. Maybe someone else can chime in on his work ?
  3. Thats a pretty open ended question. Alot depends on your personal application of it. Just open water trolling , inland lake , etc.... ?
  4. Toothpick s are the way to go. Crimps are to easy to make weak spots in leaders
  5. 2450 lund genmar. Merc alpha w hyd steering. Furuno nav pilot 300. Works great on anything you want to fish on. Remote is priceless. More functions then you can use
  6. Just put in a Furuno navpilot 300. Works great !
  7. Being in the same situation i also did alot of checking around. Octopus does make a mechanical drive but it is for rotary steering not rack and pinion. The general consensus i have found is that hydraulic systems are the better way to go. They are for sure not cheap. You will have 1000 in the helm , hoses and cylinder. Then 2000 or more in the pilot and pump. This will go up if you need to have a Nema 2k to hook up to other units such as gps, radio etc... I personally chose to go with a Furuno navpilot 300 for its point and shoot remote. For sure they cost alot but it will be the best money you ever spent to make life easier on the water this is especially true if you fish alone or with people who cant steer a boat on choppy days. Best of luck to you in your seach. Tight lines and hot drags ☺
  8. I think that smile says it all. Great to see kids out !👍👍
