January 18, 2020 in This Old Boat
Blue LED Boat Lights for the interior. I want to say that it’s for the Ambiance and Safety; maybe some practicality to see when night fishing ? It definitely looks COOL!
Pics show the installation of some clear 3/4” lights for inside the bow storage, rod locker, console area, and stern storage. I think I got the 12 pack for $10.00.
Awesome work man. I've enjoyed following this build and looks great so far. Just hope you're able to get it out and enjoy it soon Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
Yeah man,... I tell ya, rebuilding this boat been a project. It seems like we always need something. I’m lucky to have a good fishing buddy who is willing to work for Cash on the side and paid Fishing / Camping trips. The boat rebuild has been slow, but we’ve been getting our fishing in.
Boat Rebuild Continued,... Never say Die ! An old boat can live again !
The horn is 138 decibels, lol
Transom saver didn’t say to but, 4200 the edges. If this boats gonna sink it’s gonna be from something else 😂 .
I’m looking at the Hummingbird Helix 7 Mega Di works, with the GPS and Nav. I have seen it for around $580 ?
I am anxious to post the pics of the seats I purchased,...
Rod locker with LED lights. Wiring is secured, fresh water in.
Thank You www.BoatSeatStore.com. One of the best buying experiences on the net. 52” high back seats were about $330. I called first to inquire about a coupon and they gave me 10% off !
We used the low back seat for the drivers seat with a new pedestal. The front and back pedestals look pretty good after we took the wire wheel to them. The pedestal was $69.99.
Attached the seat pedestals US Coast Guard regulations with anchors.
Brass drain backs; We bought a Flanging tool.
Anyone have any experience with www.GreatLakesSkipper.com ?
I ordered black plastic drain backs from them. I think they were about $6 for two. I also ordered two sets of Boat fenders.
The box arrived at the house sealed well, but there were no drain backs in the box. I called for customer service, and called again; not only that, but the Customer Service moron acted like I was trying to scam them on a refund for a $6 item. I’m willing to bet the order picker packer was picking his nose his nose.
The girl I spoke with asked me to check the box again ?! 👎
The Brass drain backs look better than the plastic ****s anywho. Thank You Great Lakes Skipper for wasting my time.
The Front Depth Finder is an old Eagle Accura 240 with Speed and Temp.
The Fish Finder I chose for the Dash is a Hummingbird Helix 7 with the Generation 3 specs, GPS, and Nav.
I bought this unit for the Best price $530 Labor Day Sale 10% off at www.HodgesMarine.com.
I enjoyed my Shopping experience there,... I also purchased 2 Cannon Downriggers around the 4th of July, On Sale, with the Cannon Mail in Rebate deal.
What do you guys think of the Manual model Cannon Uni Troll 10 STX ?
The Arm extension is Sweet,... I also picked up a couple of Cannon Sport Troll Downriggers off of CraigsList for $125 (with a pair of Downrigger rods/Okuma reels).
I purchased 2 New Depth Counters from www.Fish307.com for the Sport Trolls.
I’m curious to know more about Downrigger mounting positions. What is the optimal position to run 4 downriggers ?
I have been collecting parts to make a DIY Planner Board Mast. I bought 2 Cannon reels with handles (parts for the Mini Troll). I bought those parts on a sale from Fish307 for $30. The reel parts for the planner board mast are probably the most difficult part to fabricate.
I purchased clutch repair parts for my Walker Lake Masters from Fish307 as well. I was very happy with their customer service. The downrigger parts guy knows his stuff; he knew exactly what I needed.
Another look at the drain backs. Installation was easier than expected with the tool. I wasn’t sure we could replicate those parts without help. My buddy researched that.
