Trolling Motors: Ford or Chevy, and how much oomph?

I haven't used a TM in a river but I would imagine with a 12'Jon you'd do ok with a 55#. You'll need to narrow it down to brand and model. I did a ton of research reviewing product reviews from cabelas and BPS. You should be able to get a feel on what to stay away from and what people are happy with...

Was it just the grass???

So I took my boat out for the second time. The motor ran great up to a certain point. It sounded like it wanted to run but didn’t have the umph (how’s that for technical terms? :roll: ). I’d have the WOT and the boat moved at trolling speed. I lifted the motor out of the water and found a HUGE wad o...

Durabak non-slip opinions?

I’m doing research for flooring ideas. Though I love the look and feel of carpet I’m thinking of trying something new. I’ve re-carpeted 3 boats and really not looking for a 4th time around. I know some have used Durabak non-slip. How do you like it? How has it held up and has there been any fading i...

Alumacraft MV 1648 NCS

I've had two of those spider stands in my old glass boat. Loved them. Super stable and you can move them anywhere in the boat with in reason.

1st time out vid and rope wont recoil

Since yours was working and suddenly failed, I fear you're in for some parts replacement. Yeah, that's kind of what i'm anticipating but I can't imagine it being a major fix. Though, i've never done anything like that either. I have a wet week ahead of me. Maybe the rain'll let up by the weekend so...

1st time out vid and rope wont recoil

Finally finished the tune up on my motor and took it out for the first time yesterday. I clocked it at 23mph (24 with the wind to our backs :wink: ). I was very pleased. It may need a carb cleaning though. Once it got passed that initial few pulls to get started, it'll start right up on the first pu...

Motor is running!

Thanks to everyone and this site for all the advice. Got my motor up and running nice and smoothly with minor hiccups. First time doing a tune up myself. Nice to save a bit a change…or a couple hundred for that matter. :D Here's a couple sec vid of the motor. http://youtu.be/_aTU_R3OUps Thanks again...

Calling Johnny25, help with impeller.

Looks like the same exact design as my evinrude. I did the same thing last weekend. The little plastic piece was a pain in the butt to get off (it was my first time). I have to take it apart again tomorrow. The pisser wasn't working and there's no clog. I think the copper water pipe didn't connect r...

Impeller space tabs facing forward???

I installed a water pump in my 1988 20hp E20CRCCA this weekend. According to the instructions the impeller housing spacer should have been installed with the tabs “facing forward”. The picture in the diagram wasn’t clear but almost seem the tabs on the spacer were facing opposite the propeller (faci...
