a couple questions

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys, a couple questions for everyone. When traveling long distances with a boat(15hrs)is it necessary to use a motor towing bracket with the kicker motor? Has anyone used the traveling motor covers they have for motors(I am using a 115hp)? Also, where do people recommend putting their flat, round GPS antenna on their boat, does it have to be extended into the air? I am working with a 17.5'alumacraft so I have room to place it just to the right of the steering wheel on the 8" lip on the edge of the boat. Also, regarding the Navionics detailed maps you can buy, do they have maps for any smaller lakes in Ontario besides LOW and the other large lakes? Smaller lakes such as Lac Seul or Minitaki? Thanks for any help guys.

I use a one piece canvas craft cover for storage and towing.The motor covers should work if they can be straped down tight.
As for the GPS antenna, any place even with or above the gunwhales should work.A lot of pro;s mount theirs on the gunwhale just in front of the windshield.Be sure to mount it some where so not to be used as a step, or it will get boke or someone will slip on it.
I picked up a few maps on Lac Seual a few years back, right from the ministry of natural resorces.But I found a place here in the metro area to order from.
The Hudson Map company has everthing you need, also check this site for maps as Rick may have a sponcer to sell them.
Good fishin, Benny

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
