Classifieds/Buy/Sell / WTB 150 -200 hp 2 stroke outboard
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:31:09 PM »
My 1987 Yamaha 175 hp just gave up the ghost on my 20 ft. Grady White, so I am looking to re-power. Looking for 150-200 hp with a 25 inch shaft length. Perhaps somebody is looking to upgrade to a four stroke and has a solid two stroke, or knows somebody who does. At this point, I am open to different options 90's or 2000's, or even a solid late 80's. Of course an older Yamaha will plug and play on my set-up, but open to anything.

Boat and Tackle Setups / Drill Once! AskTwice!!
« on: April 25, 2015, 08:07:38 PM »
Drilling tomorrow to put the rod holder trees in. Looking to run a dipsy and two boards on each side. Dance floor is approximately 8 x 8. I am going to run riggers on 45 degrees this year which makes the 5 foot boom stick out 3 feet wider than the transom width. I use 10 foot dipsy rods so should clear the rigger lines.

Is there anything else I should consider as far as how far aft or forward to put these. Right now they are about at the half-way point o dance floor (50 inches from back-- 20 foot boat).

Appreciate any comments or suggestions before the drill comes out tomorrow.


Boat and Tackle Setups / Bert's Rod Holder Install Question
« on: April 18, 2015, 04:07:09 PM »
I'm planning on installing these two rod holder trees on my Grady White next week. My original thinking was to buy a 6" track and back it with a plate or large washers and put the pedestal in the track. However, I was wondering if I could directly install the pedestal to the rail and back it with plate or washers. Wasn't sure if the second way is strong enough for magnum dipsies. I'm really interested if you guys think both ways would be strong enough, or just the first way.

Also, I don't have easy access to my rails so I was planning on cutting out an access panel on both sides and installing marine speakers for a stereo. Kind of a 2 for 1 deal.

Let me know what you guys think,

Lake Superior / Bubbler Blockade!

Drove by the bubbler tonight was excited to see that the water is open from the beach, but was very disappointed to see they have the beach closed off to 12 footers with the "Road Closed" barricade. Sure I get that the ice will be in and out 129 more times from now until its all melted, and I get that we have had a few incidents lately with anglers going through the ice. One such incident requiring rescue personnel. However, is this the new solution to staving off danger--Let's just close the access that has been there every winter and spring. Is this part of the "bubble-wrap, wear your helmet, use hand sanitizer culture" that we live in or am I just overreacting.

Can you tell its been a long winter? A little boat fishing, albeit via a 12 footer off the beach would do a lot to lift the spirits. :usa:
