Summer dreaming...

4 posts in this topic

I was at a buddy's cabin and he showed me his (new to him) 2015 Polaris Indy Voyager with 550 fan. Wow it is really nice, looks like a great ice fishing sled with that long cargo area and long track. Makes a guy drool and wanting the white stuff to come ;) 

I think he got with 1k miles and paid about $5k delivered to his cabin near Sturgeon Lake. Not sure if it was a rental from out west or not, but it sure looked clean and had those really wide skis on it.

This? It should make a great Ice fishing or trail riding sled.

Have him look over the hood real close where faded Out of State tag or Rental numbers may have been on the front or sides of the hood to tell if it was a rental. They clean them up pretty well though.

I talked to and watched a guy in a sled rental shop in West Yellow Stone one spring a few years ago cleaning up rentals to resale. They replace ripped seats, cracked windshields, bad skis, etc, took the tags and numbers off and best of all. Put a different speedo in. I pressed him on that part and he said at that time there was no law about it! :(

I've seen semi loads of these for Sale at the Hay days and grass drags in the fall around MN.

Yep like that one, but the skis looked even wider. Not sure if they were wider than those, but sure looked like it. He said the 600 liquid cooled was about $1k-$1.5k more, so he went for the 550 since it will be used mostly for ice fishing. Nice sled :)

May be suggest that he runs a compression test on it now before winter if he didn't do that when he bought it. Just a thought on a used sled.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
