Re: New bunks and bunk wrap

I just made new bunks with 10 foot 2x6's and covered them with the Caliber Bunk Wrap. Nice piece of kit, looks great. Now to find a place to launch and do some wrenching in the parking lot...

Re: Flooring

Any wood that goes in my boats gets old timers formula and then 5 coats of spar varnish. Should last 30 years even in a damp environment with that treatment.

Re: Getting a Jon boat to load straight on trailer

I suppose I would take a fine. 35º-37º water is no wadeable option for me. I do what I must for big smallmouth. I coldwater fish in Maine at iceout. Water is right around those temps and I hand load that big beast pictured above all the time. A pair of tall Muck boots live in the back seat of the t...

Re: Anybody have a home made transom saver?

Is anybody using a home made transom saver? I have been reading reviews on amazon and it seems that most of the new transom savers are failure prone. I found a few interesting results on google but wanted to post my question here. First time I took my new to me boat out I broke my transom saver. My...

Re: Question about carpet and aluminum

If you use screws with a small head, like small, oval head screws they will countersink themselves in the carpet and you basically won't see them. I like this the best because it's easy to pull panels up if you ever need to re-carpet or anything.

Re: For those of you with bimini tops

Bimini is a love hate relationship. 95% of the time it's nothing but a burden, but if it's crazy hot a bimini can save the day.

Re: Bow Mounted Trolling Foot Controlled from Stern

I know it's expensive but it will be amazing, trust us. If I had to chose one motor to fail on me it would be the gas motor for sure, the electric is 10 times more important. I also use it 10 times as much. Main motor usually sees 5 or 10 minutes of use every trip and the electric is used for hours ...

Mystic Sea & Snow, best bang for the buck if you don't have a high performance engine.
Yep, that's what I use in my 25 hp and my older snowmobile, my 150 get's the Mercury stuff but if I'm honest that's only because it comes in a 2.5 gallon jug that is much easier to use. Mystic is good stuff.

Re: MOTOR HEIGHT & PROP

Does the bracket change your motor setback by that much? How thick is the bracket? Does the Power Pole install instructions give you any guidance? If not I would consider calling them to see if they have any input.

Re: So I hit a log yesterday...

The closest place for me to fish, only about a mile from my house is named " Stumpfield Marsh" so I know exactly what you mean. It looks very similar.
