Boat questions

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone here have any knowledge of the Late 80's Grumman boats? I bought a 1988 Grumman last year but cant seem to find info on the model I have! I know that its a GFF 164. If any one has knowledge of these or knows where I could find some info I would appreciate it..

Thanks

Cali

Calli - we had a grumman circa that time frame. Cant remember if it was 88 or 89. She was 14 ft, deep, and wide, plus very well made! I'll see if I can find a picture of it with some fish. What info are you looking for?

LOLing here!!! Jay, AS I told Todd, I am a data freak. I read all my owners manuals and usually memorize them becouse you just never know what or when something strange might happen. I am looking for the over all specs on the boat. Items such as electrical info and specs on the misc pumps, and options. the general use and care instructions. blah.. blahblah, blahblah.

Pics would be cool. Can I post a pic or 2 if theirs no fish involved?

Todd, You will be first invited to go out with the green horn if you wish to do so.

Todd, Thanks so much for taking the time to give me some pointers on the boat. I learned alot and really have the itch to get her in the water now!! As for the reg, I was gonna take it down to DMV tmro but My dad insisted that he do it on line. So Ill have to wait till it comes in the mail. Hopefully it wont only be a few days.

Thanks again and I owe ya one, or two..

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
