  1. Any interest? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. No dents, no dings, acquired in a lot purchase and have no use for it. Make an offer...
  3. Please... I’ll pm my phone # and we can set up a time. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Couple initial questions if I may... 1.) Is the recommendation to go with SeaStar helm pump and cylinder tee'd into an Autpilot pump and use the OEM hydraulics as a power assisted slave cylinder with main power on? 2.) What negative effect is there in AP mode with the main power off and trolling with kicker? 3.) Is there any safety concerns operating in AP with the Main and needing to manually take control?

  6. LRG: I tried searching a couple different ways, didn’t see what you were referencing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. One would think so, but unfortunately I haven’t come across a lot of power assisted mercruiser steering upgrades. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Chas: I have been considering doing exactly the same on my Islander, wondering if you would consider detailing the process and comment on your experience with the results.
  9. IDK: Being new to this type of fishing and trying to absorb as much knowledge as I could by reading as much as I could, I found I was starting to develop brain swell... For me, I took an opportunity to visit a descent tackle shop that had most of the brands and after really putting my hands on each of them, the instant comparison of cost, features and construction made my decision much easier.

  10. Nothing like paying extra and then realize you shouldn't...
  11. Thanks Chuck... Firm believer in Keeping it simple. I am trying to enjoy my time and relax, not the opposite! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Well there is always something more to be said.... Thanks for one! I appreciate the responses and sharing of opinions. Like any newbie, just trying to figure it all out and hopefully not the hard way... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. So for depth it's sorta the 100' rule, down 20 out 80 / down 80 out 20.
  14. No worries here Keepin, I welcome the discussion! Whaler on the flouro reel for skinny water, what are using to control depth, or aren't you?
  15. So in a deep water wire diver rig, the mono acts as a snubber of sorts and eliminates the need for one?
  16. Have done some reading and wondered what the experienced folks say about the need for fluorocarbon leaders. Seems like there are more benefits to keeping it simple with mono, especially with a wire diver. If you don’t mind, can you please be specific about your reasons as I would really like to understand the thinking. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  18. If machzrcr is no longer interested, I may be. Send me a pm to discuss.
  19. Well my first question is: what’s this gonna cost me... LOL! Guess I need to do some more research, really liked the Tailfin for a lot of reasons... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Sounds like there is growing support for the EZ Steer... Thanks Captain for weighing in on this. Collective decisions are usually the best decision. Rather than starting a new thread, any words of wisdom on the best approach to setting up the steering on an old cable-assist Alpha? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. KIR: Appreciate you speaking up about your set-up and experiences. I initially was looking at the ez steer set-up and using assisted directional control off the Alpha outdrive. However I recently met an Erie fisherman with an Islander and he was using the Garmin Reactor. In his opinion an autopilot on the kicker was the way to go. I am curious to see how the Islander performs with just the kicker in light to moderate seas. It's a light boat and as Pierless stated may be subject to points of wind a bit more that i would prefer.
  22. Felt I made the right decision purchasing it, hearing an experienced opinion such as your just reinforces it...
  23. Appreciate the vote of confidence... About the only thing this kicker didn’t come with was power tilt so I am fortunate in that regard. There is one question I was debating on; the best location for the throttle controls. Have seen a few set-ups with them located aft. Any thoughts on that?
