modifying a transom saver

Recommended Posts

I recently "inherited" a brand new transom saver that I'd like to use on my boat, however the end that attaches to the trailer was for a trailer with the roller on the end and my trailer doesn't have that option. (and the other mount with the "pita" pin attachment wasn't included. Anyone have any ideas or have modified one of these in the past to mount in such a manor that is a quick on and off? (I'd rather not have to run out and buy the $50.00 one at Cabelas if I don't have to.

Thanks,

Steve

Can the part that used to sit on the roller come off?? Like side out from the top part?? If so there is a attachment that you can get that you have to instal on your boat trailer and the Transom saver will attach there. But if that is the case it would be a Waste of your time trying to and modify it, just buy a new one and be done with it!!! $50 is nothing when you look at how much it would cost to fix the seals in a motor.

I agree with these guys. I've seen them for $35 at fleet. For $50 or less you can't go wrong just getting the right one. I'm all for saving money, but I don't like to modify something as important as a transom saver.

I can't think of a good way to modify it to make it work on a boat w/o a center rear roller - short of putting a rear roller on the trailer I think you're going to have to bite the bullet and get a new one.

    • 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!
