  1. Just want to mention slow rollin as I recently had some work done with Bill, all good! Thanks Bill! John
  2. I have thought the same.. Wonder why they would turn against one of their own, seems very odd...Yes, upstate has no representation if you are not on the left...
  3. It seems the words political and corruption are synonymous.
  4. Which ever way you choose don't assume because its a fresh water boat it must be good. You could find a salt water used boat in far better shape than a fresh water boat as taking care of a boat is work, and some people either don't know how or don't want to do what it takes to take care of a boat. Many boats I looked at locally were flower pots. If it appears to be in rough shape, it probably is worse than you might imagine.. The boat we have now is our 9th so I have seen quite a few over the years, not my first rodeo :-)
  5. We bought a boat from North Carolina and had it delivered, the boat only had 88 hours on it when we bought it (Yamaha 150 OB). I hired a surveyor to go through the boat (about 316.00 dollars). The boat had very little sign of salt water use however some of the wiring compartment under the dash did have some salt crystals present. The speaker wiring which is pretty thin and the speakers themselves for some reason also showed signs of damage. Inside the motor, some of the fittings steel also showed signs of salt water. I used the boat for three years and put a 150 hours on it, and got rid of it on a trade for more than we paid for it. If you go this route, be sure to get a survey from an accredited marine surveyor, it's worth every penny. If I had to do it over again, I would. I have seen other examples where salt water damage was much more noticeable as not everyone takes care of their boat and equipment. The trailer had more signs of use than the boat, brake lines rusted, brake pads and rotors shot, etc...the marina we bought the boat from paid for those repairs as part of the deal. I was skeptical about buying a salt water boat, but because the boat we purchased had low hours and was taken care of, there were no issues. It can work out.
  6. I remember growing up on Lake Ontario in the 60's and 70's and every year there was a huge die off, from Sodus to Henderson where we cruised and fished, they were everywhere, dying and stinking. I have wondered since then what happened as I haven't seen this in years. Now this year, it seems just like it was way back then.
  7. I know Honda makes great motors, but my 2012 Nissan (Tohatsu) 9.8 has been perfect.
  8. Love Hemlock and usually see an Eagle or two. I have seen some "plain wrapper" outboard motors with all decals stripped off and they look to be very large. I have been there too many times to count and not once have been stopped. Fishing seemed to be better some years ago, but that's just me...
  9. On my Lund Fury I mounted the mast in the front seat post (raised floor casting deck). For reinforcement I took a split ring backer plate and screwed it to the front compartment anchor locker, then attached a piece of 3/8" threaded rod to the seat post using a split ring. Comes off and on very easy and is very sturdy.
  10. I use a Lund tiller 16' (2012) with 25HP merc and 9.8 Nissan for Hemlock and Canadice and for early and late in the season on Lake O for trolling near shore. I use a Robalo R227 for the big lake and am able to multi species fish it and can still cruise with the wife or guests. The 250 Yamaha gets it to about 45 or so but goes from 1/2 a gallon an hour at trolling speed to 27 gallons per hour wide open. Rides good and is heavy enough where it doesn't' roll and bob too much. This is my second Lund and both have been trouble free. I have friends that have Starcraft aluminum boats and they love them too...
  11. I have had two Lunds since the early 90's (current Lund is 2012) and can't say anything bad about them. I have friends that have had good luck with Crestliner too.
  12. I can vouch for the hull cleaning they do. I took my all white 2014 21' DC to them last year and they did a great job, it came out spotless, like new. This year I applied Aurora 721 to the bottom (2 coats) of the new boat we purchased form them in June, and the scum on the bottom melted away with just a spray bottle of slimy grimy. Either way there is an option to return your hull to like new with out painting, and yes, my boat sits Hugh's for the entire year.
