  1. Were looking at buying a home online too..Im a self employed home renovatior so ill work with family down there and a good realitor.. combined with a home inspector qere not worried in the slightest .. Were looking for a fixer upper with land and a cottage, also a fixer upper.. Nothing beats sweat equity when you can do the work..All i need is a good foundation good well and septic and im not worried about much more then that..Sure is exciting!!
  2. Well im a self employed contractor and the wife works in a pharmacy. So were thinking a 30 min radius of the Truro area...We REALLY like the five islands area for a possible cottage location..
  3. Same here.. this is why we're doing this...Travel restrictions should be fun trying to buy a house down there...
  4. So as the title states were considering leaving the provence for a slower life..Were strongly considering Nova Scotia. With covid and city living life has become somewhat of an eyeopener..The family is getting older and its just my wife my daughter (19) and myself. We want to own a hobby farm and some land to hunt on..Now I have a couple of questions... 1. Has anyone here made the move one way or another? If so how did you handle logistics? 2. Can anyone here recomend a great fishing site just like this one? In the provence of Nova Scotia....I really should have numbered this question #1 Thanks for any help insight or input! As always it's super appreciated! Cheers folks!!
  5. So I was out to my local dealer. Had a look at the new smoker crafts. Man are they ever nice . I hear what a few of you have said about buying used. It seems as though the banks only want to finance a new boat. I still want to go check out the crestliner and alumna crafts. Who sells them in the hamilton brantford area?
  6. I did this already. Sad part in the plywood is going AGAIN only after 3 years.. used marine grade plywood. Cut to fit then primed. Then coated with resin. Then installed marine grade vinyl over top . The transom is starting to get soft and it looks like the flotation foam is in need of replacment. Id rather sell it to a handy person then go thru all that work again. Just heartbreaking to have a floor failure that fast..
  7. Im sure there is a reason.. care to share? Id love to know why. Are they not made in Canada?
  8. Its time for our family to consider a new boat. Right now we have an older 1988 18 foot smoker craft with a70 HP Johnson . Were looking at replacing it with something new and comparable in size...2020 preferable.. Im totally out of the loop with new boats..So I figured I ask the Fisher people on here..(shout out to the ladies) What do you all recommend for best bang for the buck? I looked at the Legend 18XTR and really liked that..HELP!!!! this is a big money purchase, and we want this to be just right for our family. We have 2 young grand children that will enjoy tubing in the future as well as our 18 year old daughter. It will mostly be used for walleye fishing on the Grand and Trent rivers. With the odd visit to different lakes. What advise do you fine folks in regard to this.. Thanks in advace
  9. I thought the same Terry lol.. trust me if it were possible I would figured out a way lol
  10. What an amazing offer. I have sent you a pm. Thanks Cliff...cheers my friend
  11. I think it snapped from wear n tear..Its a 1988 motor and likely orignal cables. I managed to find a cable at my local dealer here in Haggersville for 65 bucks.. Ill go grab it this week
  12. Yeah I just learned that today now that im 3.5 hrs from my boat...lol . Sure would have made things much easier
  13. Thanks folks. I think i have it figured out. It sucks having the boat 3 hours from my driveway
  14. Would love a part # so i can order it on Amazon maybe...Having one heck of a time finding that info out..
  15. We catch them from time to time bottom bouncing the Trent River north of Campbellford
  16. Cliff im sorry to hear this news..I had been away for quite some time..Thanks for the reminder to love them while we still can..
  17. I always ran my 70hp Johnson dry. Its a 1982 motor and still running well..After reading this post I wont anymore lol
  18. Ok so I was out all day yesterday on the water. Pull to the dock to drop off the kid and dog. I started the motor and drove off..Get to the boat launch to run it up on the trailer and she wont slow down! Push it into neutral and damn near blow the engine. Quickly shut it off and open engine cover. Throttle wont return to idle on its own..It will go, just not return.Broken throttle cable in the plastic housing at the motor .Needless to say that was fun getting it on the trailer. Anyhow normally id just drop it off to get it fixed..With Walleye closing soon on the Trent River I cant afford the down time. Can anyone help me figure out what throttle cable I need? I measured 12 feet. The motor is a Johnson 70 HP serial and model #s are as follows Ser# is C 8226263 mod# is cj70tlcca Are these cables fairly generic? Or are they very specific? Any help would be absolutely wonderful!
  19. Im just downstream from you at the bottom of the locks on crow bay ..Same thing..Worst fishing in YEARS. I assume its from the hydro dam repairs towards Campbellford.
  20. Awesome..Still too early yet..I went drank beer didnt bother fishing...lol
  21. Im going to be heading to camp for the weekend to see how things over wintered..Thinking I may try shore fishing for Pike?
