Weedless wacky hooks

I’ve been using them for years. Even before there were octopus style weedless hooks we used the old weedless long shank Eagle claw. They do work quite well.

Best Way to Get Rid of Sharp Edges on Aluminum Plate?

A file called a flat bastard. Used that all the time when I used to work in a fab shop.

Most iconic brand?

Lund and Crestliner will also hold a much better resale value.

Need advice on mounting trolling motor on a '74 meyers jon b

You can mount it on the bow if that’s where you want it. You’ll have to fabricate a mount for it if you can’t clamp it over the gunnel. Closer to center is best. Loosen the screw below the head on the motor and you can swivel it around 180’ for a bow mount. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180805/...

1996 Mariner 25hp tiller steer

There should be a nipple on the rear starboard side of the motor where the water pees out. That is the tell tail. Fish it out with something. It can get plugged up with weeds and gunk.

The tell tail could just be plugged. Clear it out with a piece of thin wire while it’s running.

83 johnson 15 starts runs then dies?

Sounds just like the problem I had with my 74’ 9.9 Evinrude. A new fuel line fixed it for me.

Will live well pump draw from a hose

The live well pump on my pontoon has about 15’ of run and a 4’ lift. It should work!

Broken transom knee brace

You can get a transom saver that is pinned to the trailer frame and not just resting in the roller. This will eliminate the jumping off issue.
