Re: Alumacraft 1648 Project

Yeah, I have to agree that 1,600 miles is a LONG way. LOL.

The cottage looks great, the lake looks great and you got a couple great days of fishing in, as well as getting some needed chores done at your Mom's house. Thanks for the trip report & pic's.

Re: Screwdriver

It is a late model Honda outboard. The manual says to replace the plug O-rings at each gear lube change. I have about a two year supply of those and the oil drain plug washer. Thanks for the responses. All were very helpful. Now I can at least move forward to avoid further damage to the slots on the...

Screwdriver

Yeah, I ain't proud. Going to ask a question about screwdrivers. I just completed my annual maintenance which included changing out the gear lube. Second time I've done this for this outboard. Those two pan head bolts that must be removed from the gear case have fat & wide slots. I'm sure you know w...

Re: New marine hand held gps recommended??

I use Navionics charts on my Hummingbird fish finder. The coverage and contour accuracy is terrific. They also offer an app that can be used on smart phones (I'm positive they are one among many that offer this type of app). I know at least one TB member (Rich99) used it so if he sees this maybe he ...

Re: 1860 Tracker Grizzly Rebuild Project...Tower Boat Build!

The tower is awesome. I've seen them on TV, but not around here.

Might want to put reminder on the dash before you back it into the garage. Haha

Re: New Project 14' 1960 Lone Star

Wow, the transformation from the initial pic's is definitely happening. Looks like a different boat now and wide open floor plan.

BTW, nice job on the floor framing.

Re: Old Boat

SCHans, welcome to TB. We all enjoy looking at pic's. Put some up if you get a chance. I am going to admit to a personal bias here, but I do not like to see bed liner used on a boat. I think what fun future maintenance is going to be when someone has to remove that stuff. Also agree with you about t...

Trout this morning

Got out this morning and managed four in the bag. Trolling at 35’ OTW at 2.8 – 3 mph. Caught three on Speedy Shiners and one on a Honeybee. They seemed to like bright colors this morning. Had what should have been number 5 at about 10:45. I had the rod in my left hand, net handle in my right hand, f...

Re: SUNRISE...MANY MONTHS AGO

I belonged briefly to a photographers club, and typical comments on beautiful pics were: That would have been a great shot if there were pelicans flying overhead... Too bad the pic wasn't taken a minute later, the color "would" have been spectacular... Or underwater pics: A turtle in that pic would...

Re: Alumacraft 1648 Project

Heading from Georgia to Michigan this week to do some fishing in the Three Rivers area. Pictures to follow. (I Hope). I used to drive this 750 mile run in one day. Now at 66 it takes me 2. Getting old is not for sissy’s. Shoot, I guess I better stop whining about having to drive 70 miles to get to ...

Chaos theory and fractals -- probably a pretty accurate way to describe how my brain seems to function most of the time! :LOL2:
