  1. I have a 12v power drive 55 lb that i would sell. Was a backup motor with very little use. Send me a txt if interested 716 7zero8 8six49
  2. Do you have the cover over the temp probes on the probe itself ? Have they been damaged in anyway ?
  3. Just had some cv30s serviced and drags upgraded. The factory drags were indeed carbon drags. Was informed that the biggest issue with these reels is the lack of a quality drag grease such as Cals not the drag washers themselves.FWIW. like night and day difference !
  4. I know this isnt the exact boat you are looking for but a friend of mine has a 280 fisherman for sale. New 454 engine and transom and stringers were done recently. Price is right and is in decent condition.
  5. Shawn Bartnett. Bartnett marine services Does a very good job
  6. Manns stretch 25. Rainbow. Great lake erie walleye bait back in the old days. Have several of them.
  7. Take a real good look at the tips of the fuel inlet needles and if they show grooving they should be replaced. This may also be causing your leak. Good luck to ya !
  8. Went through this a year or so ago. If you want a pilot that really works well make the switch to hydraulic steering. It will be about 1000 to do this and 2000 or so for the pilot unit depending on what you get brand wise. Had 3500 in mine. Imo i dont see where you will save alot going the kicker route by the time you get pilot unit kicker bracket etc... Only to find out that it wont perform that well when its rough. For what its worth. Good luck to you
  9. You will need the magnum size inlines to run long coppers like a 400. Swap out front release to a Sams pro set up to trip as it is no fun when a big king takes the board under 😬😬 . My 2 cents
  10. You can also call Cummings directly. They will make anything you want as far as hoop size and net depth. Handles are available up to 16 ft believe it or not. Got 2 from them a few years ago. Price was right and nearly indestructible
  11. Anyone have a or multiple machine shops they would recommend? I want to get my block and crank checked and machined? what motor do you have ?
  12. Shawn Bartnett. Bartnett marine services 585 624 1380. Did a boat for me last fall. Very thorough
  13. Buddy has a 27 tiara for sale if that would work ?
  14. 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 !
  15. 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 ?
  16. Thats a pretty open ended question. Alot depends on your personal application of it. Just open water trolling , inland lake , etc.... ?
  17. Toothpick s are the way to go. Crimps are to easy to make weak spots in leaders
  18. 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
  19. Sent you a txt. Would like some more information On it
  20. Just put in a Furuno navpilot 300. Works great !
