Re: BPS Pro Qualifier 2

I just got a flyer in the mail, these will be back on sale for $59 starting July 5 if anyone is interested. Jim Odd?? I completely missed that. At least around here. Didn't see it in my flyer. I strolled through the Denver Bass Pro July 3rd when visiting family there, and had a Pro Qualifier 2 in m...

BPS Pro Qualifier 2

Although it is still a bit early here, I have been out a few times and wanted to update the BPS Pro Qualifier 2. On the water, I have had far too many over runs and can't seem to find the magic adjustment. It does reel smoothly, but I would not buy a second one. Much prefer my Abu Promax 3's. They a...

thinking about buying a kayak

Well, have had it out one time. No problem whatsoever with stability. Will have to practice paddling, but for the water I will have it on, will not be a problem. I purchased a short 3-4' paddle to aid in maneuvering, and ended up pretty much using it exclusively.

thinking about buying a kayak

Well, Rich99, not braggin' or complainin', but you got me by a 100 lbs., so I think it will do great. Not much gear, either. The flat(ter) hull should make it ride high as well. I think my 67 year old body and balance will be fine. I will report back. httpss://i.imgur.com/CqYW4hU.jpg httpss://i.imgu...

thinking about buying a kayak

Well, ended up with the Pelican Catch 100. Well thought out. Love the open cockpit. Currently making a low budget cart for it. Made supports to sit on and mount against garage wall. Makes storage a breeze. Weather isn't cooperating to get it out.

Boat recommendations for small slip size

The step makes it nice to board, especially for the rug rats. However, removing that step will open up a lot more possibilities and I think you want as wide as possible with the kids on board moving around. That extra 5-7 inches is a big difference. If it is a big step down, make a step that fastens...

Before & After

Funny thing. I just recently saw a news report that the state is making very little, if any, effort to save water from these rainy seasons. Hasn't been a reservoir built since the 70's. The eviros and idiots in the legislature do not want to make any effort. The next major drought, write them a than...

Aluminum fasteners

I would not be the least concerned about replacing the brackets with new stock, which I would recommend. Don't need to grind rivets. Center punch the heads and drill them out. Use stainless pan head bolts and washers and nuts. Could add some marine sealant to assure leak tight. Should be able to fin...

BPS Pro Qualifier 2

Rather than start a new thread, thought I would give my initial reaction here. Ordered Fri. PM. Showed on my doorstep Sat. AM. What a great start. Initial review. Clean lines, very nice fit and finish. Checked bearings and screws. Everything seemed good. Nice parts diagram breakdown. Did add a smidg...

BPS Pro Qualifier 2

That is a great write up. Already read about keeping the drum clean and properly oiled. I will not be using this nearly as much as the author, so wearing out parts should not be an issue. I also do not use in harsh conditions. With parts changing so often, anymore, replacements will probably not be ...

BPS Pro Qualifier 2

Don't know if BPS is pulling a bait and switch trick, but went on line to order. Once in the system, the Pro Qualifier indicates "original retail" at $99.99. However, it also list the "regular price" at $69.99 and the sale price at $49.97. It is listed as a "limited edition". I am taking a chance an...

Multi tool type boat

I would think a 1236jon would do most of the above. You didn't mention how much water you have to cover, but if in no hurry, a small outboard 6hp-9.9hp should serve you well. If you are not traveling long distance, even a 32-36 lb. troller will get you from a to b. Wouldn't necessarily have to trail...
