  1. New plugs, pull the carb and clean it right out with carb cleaner. good luck
  2. Slot limits are far different than “catch and release only” seasons. Different descriptor. I think it even references “possession” when referring to the slot.
  3. thanks for the link I placed an order for 2 20 packs. I recently paid $8 for I think 6 of these or something outrageous. One of those things where you know you are getting taken.
  4. what "model" number did you choose. There's no reference to what that means. Im assuming doing something in the middle fits your standard treble hook?
  5. they actually kind of reach the top of the curve, those hulls can only go so quick. Hole shot gets better, but not different than with bassboats how a ranger with a 250 will only do 70's while a gambler will approach do in the 80's and a bullet will get close to 100. ive driven a boat 70 now...ive been in a boat that did 74...its fast enough. The idea of driving one of those big hulls into the high 60's terrifies me, they arent designed for stability at really high speeds.
  6. Looks like one heck of a trip. Some great catches and beautiful scenery. Thunder Bay airport is always a breeze too.
  7. Guys are running 400’s on 21 foot boats. That whole “max horsepower” rating thing is basically out the window these days. You can effectively strap whatever the hell you want onto big boats now.
  8. Lol no one is paying 80gs for a 12 year old boat. especially with an old terrova and one graph. Not a chance in hell. i guarantee that right now. That thing is going to sit for a longgggg time until someone talks some sense into the dealer.
  9. Link for these, the prices at the store for them is ridiculous
  10. I got mine on Amazon when I owned Humminbird’s cause they smudged so bad. Haven’t put them In the Garmins
  11. As a rule, when you buy a used boat even if the impeller is working, you change the impeller. unless of course the owner tells you that he literally just had it done. i did an impeller on my 130 on my front lawn having never done one in my life and I found it very straight forward. Hardest part was realizing how to twist the housing down on the rubber so that it would actually go into the housing. It’s one of those jobs that because everything is intact to begin with and typically nothing is broken, you simply disassemble and then just reassemble in the exact same order with your new parts (gaskets, the impeller) the hard part on a big motor can be re-aligning the gearshaft and that’s just because it’s heavy as hell. On a small motor, easy Peazy can be done by yourself. youtube is your friend for sure!
  12. Impeller is easy if you can get the kit. I’d make sure you can still get one. im also curious as to how this guy knows that a new impeller is all it needs? It’s so easy and reasonably priced to do it seems strange that he would sell it without it done? Could be larger issues at play?
  13. Siwash speaking from my own personal experience, you will probably have a pretty good feeling that you are buying the boat prior to even seeing it. Both times in my experience, the communication from the seller was perfect leading up to the transaction, I basically knew everything about the boat before even meeting them. I showed up and within 5 minutes I knew I was buying it. I just then went through the process of confirming that the compression was correct and that the boat didnt leak. Good sellers are typically guys that are only selling this boat because they upgraded to a better boat. That a lot of the time means that the guy was fishing out of the boat you are buying and simply went bigger/newer. One boat I test drove, the other i started from cold in the driveway and revved it up. On an aluminum boat I probably wouldnt buy it without seeing it sit in the lake for half an hour just to make sure the rivets aren't blown right from the get go. An honest seller will probably start the conversation by telling you everything wrong with the boat lol. My newest boat the seller outright told me, yup I hit a rock and had to replace the lower end. He then even gave me the receipts for the work. Pointed out a few chips in the glass and told me about getting a recall done from yamaha. Its pretty obvious the guy isnt hiding anything when they do that. Remember no used boat is perfect, even ones that say "immaculate" they essentially never are. Its a matter of the fundamentals being in check. A bad engine or hull is a problem. A few nicks and bangs or wear spots give the boat character and a lot of things can be cleaned up or fixed with a bit of elbow grease, silicone and PC 11
  14. source for this? Canadian Tire has always been my go to. The other spot i go is in curve lake, they have marine fuel ethanol free
  15. With climate change Ontario is literally now getting warm enough to link in with the traditional “tornado alley” rough go for everyone up in the north east. Sadly this is not going to get better any time soon.
