***PIX ADDED*** Medium Sled Otter Cabin Bolt-in Modification

Recommended Posts

Pix can be seen here; I can't beleive I forgot I already posted them months ago!

Pix in previous post

This is a custom built Mod that specifically fits an Otter Medium Sled, which is the sled that goes with an Otter Cabin. It has 4 covers, plus enough room for a 20 lb tank, a Big Buddy heater, and a 5 gal bucket (of course!) It is carpeted, and probably weighs around 15 lbs. There are no seats (they got to the next mod!) but you could sit on the carpeted hatch covers as they are sturdy enough to stand on, or mount your own. It bolts in with a few holes drilled around the top lip. I can get some pix if interested, but you probably won't get anymore out of them that I explained. This can be installed in less than 15 minutes, even less if you don't want it bolted.

In exchange, I would like to get the materials to build my next version, which would be a sheet of 1/2" plywood, carpet to cover, and some hardware and other extras. Either a gift card or the materials themselves would be OK. Other trades will be considered.

Wow, I thought someone would snatch this up for less than $50 of materials, and save themselves the time and labor of designing and building a drop-in mod from scratch. It's worth a look if you have thought about making your own!

Please, email me, and I'll reply w/ pix. I can't access a photo hosting site from work (rabid fun-police in IT) to post pix here.

Thanks for your interest! McGurk

Trades will be considered, tools, ice fishing gear, etc...

Anyone interested can email me, and you are welcome to stop by if you would like to see it firsthand. I'll even drop it back into my sled if you want to see it in that way.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
