  1. Another vote for Boatlife here. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  2. Fill one backwards (wire first, then backing) keeping track of how much of each until the reel is full. Then reel that onto your second reel. Then fill the second reel with the same about of backing and wire. The line counter wont be worth much here, so you need to measure out the line when you put it on to know how much there is. I use two step posts from Rural King 100' apart when I do this and when I'm calibrating my reels. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. And if you plan on keeping your boat in a slip, remember to always let your motors warm up to temp before leaving the dock. There is no worse feeling than drifting towards someone elses boat at their dock and not being able to do anything about it! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. Hey Hachimo, if you've never operated a boat with twin inboards, here are a few suggestions. When around the dock, launch, or in tight quarters, always keep the rudders straight and steer with the controls. Specifically, docking or coming out of the slip, you can rotate by having one control in forward, the other in reverse. The direction of turn is dictated by which motor is in forward vs reverse. Once the rudders aren't straight, it becomes more difficult to steer with the controls. Dont be afraid to use the throttles if necessary, just remeber, a little goes a long way. And keep in mind if your out in the lake in really big following seas, pull the trim tabs all the way up. If not, they will help push the bow down as you come over a wave and possibly stuff the bow.

  5. Very nice! I'm sure she'll be a fish catching machine! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  6. I'm not sure about NY, but in other states like PA, you'd likely need to track down the previous owner, have them request a new title, and then sign it over to you again. Then you can get a new registration. I'm just not sure how you would get a title into your name with it being on file in someone else's. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  7. Thats my understanding as well, BUT only for 2020 and newer model boats. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  8. Parkers are one tough boat. One hit the breakwall coming in after dark last year in Ashtabula. I was there when they pulled it off the wall. It still floated and one motor fired up, so they brought it in under its own power with a coast guard and local charter escort. She was pumping water and when they hauled it, water was draining out the hull. Did I say came in on its own? Yea, I would vote for a Parker too. Photos I took that day.

  10. Missed thus part! If the boat was built after January 1 2020, older boats aren't required to have it is what I read, scroll down the link to where "requirements" is printed in red and click on it! They spell it out rather nice! Q6. What boats need to have an Engine Cut-Off Switch installed? A6. Boats less than 26 feet in length that generate more than 115lbs of static thrust (~ 2-3hp) and were built beginning in January 2020. If the boats’ primary helm is inside an enclosed cabin it is not required to have an Engine Cut-Off Switch. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  11. I wasn't aware of this new law / requirement...saw this posted on another site. Requires boats under 26' to have a lanyard / kill switch style system while underway... https://coastguardnews.com/coa...MiGx4aBrTxv0yA3xZUFV1yGUVEVfDU Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  12. On that size of a boat, I would not install a planer board mast. Up to three rods each side, run inlines, four or more, run big boards. With that said, if you do go with a mast and big boards, use the red medium size rubber bands between the release and your line. You half hitch the rubberband around your fishing line and put it in the release. You can buy these at FishUSA. If its rough, you may need to half hitch two rubber bands together and use them as one long rubber band. As far as pulling the tow line in, retractable dog leashes work great. Just clip onto the tow line and wire tie or attach the dog leash handle somewhere near your windshield. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  13. When you guys are saying weighted steel, are you talking single strand stainless? Thats what we use over on Erie and with 300' of wire and a Magnum Bomber 26A, I can sink it in the mud at 70'. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  14. There is a 2003 Baha 277 GLE on Craigslist Buffalo for sale if your interested in that model. Listed 4 days ago. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  15. And I bought it in March, so she was still in winter storage when I wrote the check. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
