eskimo quick flip

5 posts in this topic

So I'm trying to buy a used portable fish house in the summer to maybe save some cash since people might be looking to get rid of them and I stumbled upon the chance to get a good deal on an Eskimo quick flip that supposedly seats 3. Anyone have anything against these houses as far as durability, weight, heat retention etc? I tried searching the forums but couldn't muster up much. Any help would be appreciated.

I have had my Quickflip III for going on three years now. You cannot beat it for the money at all. It is just as good as the Otter I sold Sandmannd, the Fishtrap guide I had first, and the frabills. There is nothing wrong with it at all. Mine retains heat fine, and I installed ropelights on the bar above your head when you sit down. Longevity has been more than I expected so far and I don't see myself buying anything other than a Eskimo in the future. Right now I have the Quickflip III, the Eskimo Lodge and two Quickfish IIIs. As far as weight it is going to be comparable to any flip style house that size, it is BIG.

They are nice, if you can get a good deal on it, then get it. I find a lot of the portables are a lot a like now. There are some differences but have a lot of the same characteristics. I would get one you can stand up in and go as big as you can for now. Not always needed, but nice to have the space. I have my otter two and now have one that is a monster at 10' wide, 9' tall & 16' from front to back. Can't wait to get that beast on the ice!!

If they aren't modified, they don't weight much. It depends on what you put in for your gear too. The more you put in the heavier it gets. I use a heater/cooker in mine with a 20 lb tank and you have to turn it off or you bake out of it.

Its a good unit and very lightweight to pull around early ice and late ice.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
