Has anyone been to Kentucky Lake?

Sorry I know this is an older post but with some experience on that lake I thought I'd voice an opinion. Be very careful, Ky. Lake can get nasty very quick with the wind and the barge rollers. You can be in a relative calm section and make a turn around the bend and all devil breaks loose. I think I...

I DID IT!

My family and I have cashed in on Bess Pro Lifetime socks many times. They have never questioned or even looked at them to see if they were worn out. Bass Pro Has changed the material in the socks a few times as the old ones contained a higher % of wool than the newer versions, but they're still a v...

Mounting Lights

Sorry fellows for not getting up here before now and getting back with you. My boat is a LOWE and it has the rail around the inside of the gunnale. I drilled a hole that would accept a 5/16 carriage bolt heads behind the rail. The square shoulders lock it from turning and I have made a bracket to mo...

Mounting Lights

I took a look at many of the boats and it appears most of these boats are single purpose units or the lights are mounted to a rail or platform. Hard to tell for sure but they didn't appear to be what I was thinking of or hoping to find. Thanks for the effort. I'm going to speak to a friend in a few ...

Mounting Lights

I have to use my boat for everything so any permanent fixtures is not an option. I'm looking for ideas on mounting bowfishing lights on the gunnel of my boat. I was originally thinking of keeping them single and having a simple clamp bolted welded to each light or something of the sort that I could ...

I understand your feelings and your concerns with your loss of a special fishing hole and the smallmouth is a very special fish no question about it. Many times people look to...

Fear the beard!

I usually do a no shave November and let it grow on into spring but by then it's aggravating me more than my wife! :wink:

Bunks

Thats pretty nice Jerry, I didn't think about PVC for bunk toppers but I used the pvc brickmold trim when I replaced the rotted front door threshold and stormdoor, it's cheap and will never rot, + it didn't need painting, the house trim is white! I can't afford Cypress but might try to use the pvc ...

(No carpet to hold moisture and rot the bunks) Boat easily slides off the PVC.
What's the PVC exterior trim used on originally and where did you find it.

Bunks

Just a thought about this subject and not trying to sway opinions BUT: I spoke salesman at a boat dealership that is nation wide. I'm not going to say the name but they are one of the most widely known. Now for accuracy of this comment I spoke with a salesman and not someone in the shop. When I aske...

Boat Cover Material

Well a storage cover would be OK however I was having trouble finding something to fit. It's a 19' semi- or Modified V aluminum boat. All the covers applications show them for a deep V or else a square front jon boat. Neither of which I thought would fit right and the sales man agreed typically agre...

Boat Cover Material

I've talked about a boat cover for over a year now and can't seem to pull the trigger. I ask one person and they tell me one thing and another will tell me another, it just goes on an on. One thing that I wonder about is the material used in the mfg of these covers. Whether it be a custom cover, sem...

Can anyone help me ID this boat?

Sorry I didn't catch which state you were in. I'd try to talk to a my local Boating Enforcement Agency what ever it's called in your state. Not the office but a field officer. Get him to run those HIN numbers and if it's ever been on file it should still be on record. When you junk or quit licensing...

Can't believe someone hasn't chimed in to help you. Sorry I'm no help with stick steer but it's an interesting subject. It seemed to be popular with a certain group around here a few years back. Mostly older fellows that used it, and they wouldn't have anything else. Most of those old fellows have s...
