    which motor company?

    I have a 4 stroke Tohatsu 18. It has been a great motor. From what I have read they actually make the motors for many others. A nissan is the same thing with different stickers. I have also heard that they make the mercury 4 stroke motors under 25.

    2000 lund rebel

    I typically fish smaller lakes. I just want something a little bigger and without benches because I take the kids out some now to.

    2000 lund rebel

    I am looking at a 2000 lund rebel fishing boat with a 40 hp honda outboard motor. Looking for anyone who has experience with these type of boats. I am looking to upgrade from a older 16 lund with bench seats. I am debating if this boat is big enough for my needs. Does anyone have any alternatives to this boat they have used? maybe a Tracker or Alumacraft?

    16 lund front platform and Remove middle seat flooring

    thanks for the info and time spend uploading the pics. Now I just need to start planning
  7. I am thinking about doing some customizations to my 16 lund boat. There are lots of good pictures and ideas here, but I am looking for how people build the structure underneath. Does anyone have good pictures of how they build the floor and front platform from a structural perspective. I have seen both alumnium and wood used. alum angle seems the way to go, but would like to learn more.

    How do you get perch to bite

    Usually the problem is not getting them to bite, its getting them on your hook.

    Regular Buddy vs. Big Buddy?

    I have a big buddy and it works well unless its really cold. I was using it in a Eskimo Grand Caravan. Its a pretty big flip over. When the sun went down and it was below zero I would get a little cold. I now have a mr. heater double burner for those really cold days.

    Right Sized Boat

    I currently have a small 16' lund with the bench seats. It gets me out fishing but I am thinking about looking at something a little bigger and more conferatable, such as a pro v. I have seem some used with 60 -90 hp motors. I leave close to mille lacs and would like to get out there. but I also still enjoy the little lakes, so I dont want a monster boat or a boat payment. Does anyone have any advice on if a pro - v would be a good fit for this type of fishing? Or does anyone have a better option other tan a pro-v.

    Heater suggestion for 2 man portable?

    I have a big buddy, but for the money I would go with the mr. heater cooker. It hooks to a 1lb or 20 lb and it puts out lots of heat.

    Regular Buddy vs. Big Buddy?

    I have the largest eskimo flip house and a buddy is noth enough. I am guessing a 6x6 hub has just as much sq ft to heat. I would go bigger is better

    Outboard Motor Repair

    I have a 2004 4 stroke Tohatsu 18 hp out board. It starts fine, but it misses and dogs out at the top end. I checked the spark plugs and they looked ok. I am thinking the carb needs to be serviced. Does anyone know of a reliable trustworthy place to take an outboard motor? I live in the St. Michael area.
