anyone using the Shoremaster Voyager?

6 posts in this topic

I have a Fishtrap 2, and will buy a larger sled within the next couple of weeks. I like the Otter but this Shoremaster has alot of room and enough headroom to spear in. Does anyone have experience with this sled. Set up take down pull on ice.
Thanks

My no. 2 son has one that I have shared with him and borrowed a few times. It seems to be very rugged and will hold a ton of stuff. You're right about it having a lot of room; you could hold dances in it. But it is rather heavy, especially if you tow it on foot, and it takes a while to set up, compared to some I've seen. He bought his without seats, so we use a plank laid lenghthways. Anyone know where we can get proper seats for it?

I have used the Shoremaster Voyager a few times and found it to be a very superior house. They have what I feel is a great construction, better windows and seem to be a solid house. They also have a longer apron on them to pack snow or ice around to further help seal off cold air. Thumbs up from me on this house.

I am on my second winter in a Shoremaster Jigger. It's smaller than the Voyager but uses the same tub/sled. I have extensively customized it to fit my needs. The best thing about the tub is that it's square on top which makes it possible to move the seats farther apart for more elbow room when fishing in there with two people. And it comes with a free rubberized, bungeed canvas cover for travel..........I built custom seats for mine that have rod storage capabilities underneath....All in all, a nice shelter with an affordable price tag......T

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
