  1. Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future. Also been looking at the A-crafts. The 205 trophy. Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now. Good boat but its too light for big water. Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's. The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice. Really impressed. Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
  2. I have a pair of Ice armor 1200 g thinsulate boots. They are warm and comfortable. Was on LOw last week for 2 days in a porty and never got cold.
  3. Any plans to have Lake winnipeg maps for us H'bird guys?
  4. I bought the Ice helix 7 last year and love it. Been using a FL8 since they first came out. Cant remember when that was. I wanted a map and flasher/graph in one unit and this was it. Already had the map cards so worked out good.
  5. Nice work. Im guessing that thing glides pretty easy.
  6. Pickup up an Orca 40 at Menards today. $189. Should work fine. Thanks for all the input from everyone.
  7. Well i got the Igloo sportsman and before I even tried it out I came across some reviews where someone took a light and put inside the cooler, closed the lid and in a dark room you could see a big spot that had no insulation in it. So I tried it out and yep, mine also had a big void spot where no insulation. Packed it up and sent it back. I guess its tough to make a quality product now days. Back to search mode for a cooler. That Orca looks interesting. I see Yeti has dropped their price a bit. Still too high.
  8. Ordered a Igloo Sportsman 55qt cooler. Looks like a decent one. Has a gasket on the lid to seal up. Should be fine for me. Too many choices, got sick of looking at them. For $169 its not high end or cheap. I'll report back after it gets some use.
  9. Need a new cooler or two. The cheap Colemans don't cut it anymore. Yeti's are nice but spendy. Any recommendations for similar style ones that are a bit less $$$?
  10. Not sure about the heads or motor design. They have the info on their page. Ordered one Friday. We'll see how long it takes to get. Not expecting it b/4 the MN opener although it would be nice to get sooner.
  11. OMG! What year is that Red lake video from? They should have brought the boat!
  12. Yes they used to. These new 4/stk's are built in FonDuLac Wisc. Talked to salesman today. Maybe see one the end of April.
  13. Merc came out with a new fuel injected 15 hp pro kicker. Its debut was last November and dealers still don't have prices or info on them. Whats up with that? Ive been looking for one but no one has anything. People want to buy their product and it not available. Don't get it.
  14. Especially if they are on a snowmobile. One trick i found that they use is if its windy, they fly up to you into the wind so you can't hear them as good.
  15. Your probably gonna have to get up there and open it up otherwise your gonna have sewer gas backup in your home. Not good. A lot of people in my area use a section of copper pipe and solder a piece crossways on one end. 1" pipe seems to work best. You then have a piece that looks like a "T". Drop it down the vent tube and it helps to keep the vent open. The theory behind it is that the warmer air down in the vent pipe will radiate to the top to help thaw the frost. Its not going to keep it open 100% of the time but it does work better than nothing. Ive also see people paint the vent b
