  1. I was referring to the spool for the ez ducer icing up not your spools on your rods...
  2. I wanna see what happens when your out hole hopping in the extreme cold and the water on the spool becomes a block of ice haha.
  3. If you set your ducer to the right height you don't have nearly the trouble if it's hanging down below the ice too much... I don't think they'll sell many of those.
  4. Yup I already bought one, wish the guy before me would have used one haha
  5. If anyone is looking for something to plug their livewell overflow, test plugs seem like they will work like a charm...
  6. I got in contact with that Dr. Sonar... He said he hasn't noticed a difference on which side...He also said 18" from the center line.
  7. Does it matter if you mount your ducers port side or starboard...I have read a lot of people saying the prop messes it up on the port side. Then people that say it doesn't matter... In my head it shouldn't matter, because the prop is hitting the water that already went over the ducer. Also I'll be mounting a side imaging and a high speed ducer, I know you want the SI lower and closest to the keel...Do you want the ducers as close to the center as you can get them? I keep reading conflicting info on that too. Some say close as you can get it some say 15" from the prop...I feel like it shouldn't matter either side and you'd want them as close to the center as possible... Correct me if I'm wrong
  8. Does anyone know if there's a reason why they have the thru hull livewell overflow rather than the just the hollow tube for the plug...My 91 rebel just has the the hollow tube and I never had any problems with it overflowing...Im thinking I'm just going to plug the thru hull, then I don't have to mess with it again if I have to take that part of the floor up again. It just seems unnecessary
  9. I feel like that project was kind of like when you do brakes for the 1st time and 1st side takes 2 hours to do and 2nd side takes 15 mins....If I had to do it again, I feel like it wouldn't take very long...That dang livewell overflow is the only thing that is pain in the butt...
  10. Well got the boat pretty much done, just have to put the livewell overflow back on and the battery compartment...I'm happy with the vinyl (nautolex shark grey). I have some vinyl left over, in the summer I might try and make a rod locker between the consoles... Not just need some open water
  11. If you make your own crawler harnesses use the quick change clevis. Then you can switch out blade colors very easily, rather than having to switch the whole snell.
  12. Well laid the new floor in and it fits perfectly...Depending on how thick this vinyl is I might have to sand some to get the pieces in with the vinyl so much for the gaps ha... The power decided to go out on my before I could get the rest of my work I wanted to get done today, darn wind.
  13. No on mine the consoles are in front of the main floor just a touch...Yes the stringers would be under it...My pics from previous posts show how the stringers are laid out...
  14. Also anyone have the best way to fold the vinyl on the corners...This is way the way I plan on doing it..
  15. Well hopefully the boat will be all done by the weekend...The vinyl should be here Wednesday, that's the only thing I'm waiting on...I'm going to cut the one big piece of the floor so I can fit it in without taking the console out and just so its easier. My plan is to cut it bow to stern, does anyone recommend cutting it a different way...I think this way will look the best. The dotted line is where I plan on cutting, the port to starboard side dotted line was my other way I thought of cutting it, the seem would be hidden under the storage boxes that way. Figured I'd post a picture on here to see if anyone that's done it before has any better way they did it...Thanks for the input
