    Oars & OarLock Questions

    With my luck am planning on adding oars. Even with a new motor I can just see myself stranded. Pinned oars makes sense to me.

    Extra led lighting….legal or not?

    Open water travel I would not have them on. In a cove or backwater would not worry about it. I have seen boats lit up like New York skyline back inside of coves and backwaters on Lake Eufaula{OK} but open water travel most just run the proper navigation lights.

    Just got a "new" old boat. I think it's a 16' Lone Star, but nothing really matches up.

    When your dealing with old contaminated stressed out aluminum a patch is a wise choice. I have a small crack on my boat and it had been repaired with 650K epoxy and fiber tape. The patch was on the boat when my wife's brother bought the boat. So I know it was at least 5 years old and it did not...

    New guy

    I inherited mine. Wife's brother died and left his property to my wife and I. He was really into running jug lines and used the boat primarily for that. Wife says boat had no leaks but after removing the paint figure the gluvit and West 650K would be a good idea. For a average 14 foot boat...

    The cost of used boats here in Oklahoma is ridiculous. Any boat that has been modified for fishing Is really off the charts in price. Some of the used boats that have been slightly modified with aftermarket parts are going for more money than the new ones.
