7.5 hp sears gamefisher

Not too difficult. Just make sure that your motor was made by eska before the buy that carb kit. My father helped me with the rebuild because he has more experience with that type of thing but it did not take that long at all. There are a couple basic guidelines with the kit to go by and just make s...

vehicle lights on boat

For now only one battery but eventually two batteries. I was just pondering the idea and I appreciate the input. I should probably just hold off any lights and when I finally do it just put in the proper lights.

Post Picture of Your First Fish of 2011

Actually by 2nd and 3rd fish of the season but here are a couple decent size brookies from the maury river(goshen pass) in va. 16 inches is citation for brook trout here in va so these are decent size. They are a little shriveled because I went for a couple hours while my primer was drying on my boa...

Can't Decide on a caliber

Do you reload at all? Also what range would these coyotes be that you would be shooting?

Coyote Hunting Rifle?

I would go with the 742 since its semi automatic which will give a quicker second shot than working the bolt on the model 700. Like has been said before at that range either one will do just fine.

1960 14 ft aluminum flat bottom

Bought it from lowes for 52 cents a foot. Has rubber backing and a two yr warranty. I also tried to stick a treble hook into it with pretty good force and it wouldn't really go in at all which I was very impressed by.

Anybody ever make outriggers for a small V boat?

I was considering doing the same for my 14 ft flat bottom. I was thinking of attaching a piece of pvc pipe to the side with a big noodle in it to each side of the boat. Then maybe a 45 degree elbow on the front so it would run through the water a little bit better then capping the top of that.

Carpeted floor and seats in for a test look. Boxed in the front to house the battery(ies), hopefully will have enough carpet for that this weekend but it will be close. Finally picked up the trolling motor, 50lb thrust minn kota powerdrive with foot control. Also rebuilt the carb in the outboard and...
