Re: Alumacraft 1648 Project

Looks like you're getting your monies worth out of that boat. Over 8 years and counting...Good job!

Re: Grizzly 1548?

I bought a new 2018 1648 grizzly last summer.
Agree, its a pretty stout boat. Suites my needs. Very pleased with it.
Good luck.

Re: Tiny Tach and the like reliability?

Just went through my second tachometer. The first was a Tiny Tach, the second a knock-off. My best bet is that moisture killed them both. I store them inside but boat in all weather. They both lasted about one season. So what I want to know it’s this typical of these little tachs? Is there a more d...

Re: Motor for alumacraft mv1648 ncs

Just picked the boat up this week. Looking to get a motor for it soon. It will be used for fishing and some duck hunting. Most of the time it will be 2 guys and dog on the boat. Will a 25hp be sufficient? I'm not against going used for the motor but may buy a new one. Any suggestions on brands for ...

Re: WATCH OUT for E15 fuel

Bad part about Non-Ethanol is that it still might have ethanol in it. Local station advertised 93 octane no ethanol, yet when you test it, it's around 5%. Still meets federal madates (it only has to be labeled up to 10% if it's 7 to 10%). Also I questioned the station's owner that one night when I ...

Re: WATCH OUT for E15 fuel

The manual for my new motor says non ethenol is preferred, but e10 if you have to.
So far finding non ethenol gas isn't much of a problem where I live.
Also, I installed a fuel water seperater filter on my boat for good measure.

Fishing reports?

I was out once to a local lake. I managed to get a nice little large mouth on my ultralight rig. That was it my friend and I never got a single bite. Not on crawlers,worms, spec minnows, rapalas of all color and kind, whopper ploppers , beautiful day though could not have been more perfect. hopeful...

Fishing reports?

Me and a few friends have been catching pretty good.
I was just wondering how you guys fishing has been going?
I haven't been out yet, but
I'm planning on doing some cat fishing in Tennessee in late May.

Re: Alumacraft 1648 Project

Nice to hear that boat has served you well.
Last summer I picked up a tracker grizzly 1648.
Looking forward to many years of service too.
Good luck with fishing as well.
I've learned a lot from your thread. Thanks for sharing.

Picked Up My New (to me) Jon Boat Saturday

Jim not sure yet if any mods. I definitely wanted a tiller over a console. Also wanted an open floor plan for crabbing. Might try carpeting the floor if I can get it up easily. I have a 1648 MV and really enjoy the open flat floor for mobility and fishing. The only thing I may add is another pin ho...

Dang scary!
I'm sure we'll experience more flooding as the rest of the country starts to thaw out.
In Minnesota, our glory hole is the Mississippi river.
