it ways a ton. Kind of hoping to lighten it up. I was going back and fourth with 6x8 and 8x8 because of the weight. How heavy would you say it is.

I have a 6X8 about 20yrs old. I am pretty sure when I bought it they told me it was around 100lbs. By the way the house is almost in as good as shape as the day I bought it, Canvas Craft puts out a very high quality product.

Thanks guys cant weight to pick it up. I checked the web site and it says the 8x8 is 145 pounds to me its worth wrestling for beingcomfortable and having warm feet. I dont move around much.

All ready have some good ideas to move it around thanks to the ideas of jim43 and jimalm. Time to get the welder going and fire up the stove in the garage.

I have an old 6x8 also. Been out in it at 20 below with some awful winds. A great house. Just getting too heavy as I get older. I made a cradle for mine and put some old water skis under it. I can leave some of the covers off the holes when it's folded up and put 5 gal buckets in them when I'm pulling it. Still looks like new.

Overnighters are in the picture. I bought the kit and assembled it myself tonight in the basement. Bp was right it ways a ton I wonder if I should have used cdx plywood instead of treated could have saved a third of weight. It was warmer in the ice house than the basement room. Now I got to figure how I'm going to get out of the basement, didnt think that one through to well. blushlaugh

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
