Fish House Build #2

Recommended Posts

Im looking at your stub shaft or pivot shaft. They look  real light to me. We have always ran a shaft from one side to the other and it was a 2 inch shaft with 5 .5 inch sticking out. Very little chance it will bend. A loaded house going  down a plowed lake road gets pretty rough.

 

Just my 2 cents

These are 1.25 Grade 8 bolts that are welded through the frame.  I'm a Mechanical designer so I have access to CAD software.  I have put my frames through simulations so I know where the weak points were before even building it.  This house all said and done should weigh in about 1800#. A 1.25 Grade 8 bolt has a shear strength of about 100,000#.  The Frame will give about long before the bolts do.

Why not just foam the floor instead of insulate it? I think you would have a firmer floor. Did you use POR 15 or regular Rustolium type enamel? Just my 2 cents but I wish I would have used a regular house door instead of the traditional FH door, the stupid things always freeze up on a tight house as it's about the only place air comes in if you leave the heat on long enough. A vent or cracked window fixes that but they have their frost up problems too. 

I'm on a tight budget that's why I'm opting to use the pick foam board instead of the spray foam.  The flooring is going to be 3/4" ply so I'm not to concerned about stiffness in the floor.  I used Rustolium paint.  2 coats of primer and 3 coats of paint.

The boy decided to go to bed early tonight so i was able to get the floor fully insulated.   1.5" pink foam board.   I wish i would have done that on mine.

What-ch holding it up there with on the bottom side? 

Yup there are 4 inch wide tabs welded to the tubes.  I also cut the foam a little wide and wedged it in.  I will also apply adhesive to the top side when I lay the wood done so it will be attached to that too.

  Im a machinist and seen lots of bent stuff. And fixed lots of them. Yes them grade 8 bolts have shear strength. I have seen 2 inch stub shafts bend on fishhouses.. Your house will weight 1800 lbs then add all the stuff you put in it and your up to 2300 lbs easy. Then bounce across a lake and the top of the house is swaying one to two feet back and forth. Pulling a house across the lake is hard on them.

 

After welding on them and getting them red hot will take a lot of the strength out of them.

Floor is on.  If i do another fish house in the future i need to find torx screws because phillips suck.  You would think after building one that i would have learned for this second one.

Fish house supply.  They guy is literally right down the road from me.  It was little more then I wanted to pay but the convenience out weighed the cost.

Looks good.  Well you may not get back out of much open water this year. But your Uncle will hit the ice on time! 😄

Yeah that's alright with me.  I don't really do much fall fishing anyways as I got deer hunting on my mind.  I could probably put my boat away now if I really wanted too.

You still have time for a front and back window. Worth a thought?

Yup I have brought up the idea of it to my uncle but he said he didn't need it.  I stressed the idea that I wish I would have put a third window in my house but he still said he didn't want it.  It's easier for me this way so I'm not complaining haha!

Did you remind him it's hard to watch for the Wardens without a window on all sides? Some times those bast-ards are sneaky! 😆

Well I didn't say that but I did say that its nice to be able to put tip ups all around you that you can see from inside the house.  I guess he doesn't tip up fish.

I got the tin on order last night and managed to get the windows installed but no pictures because it was pretty dark when I finished up.  This weekend I plan to get the door installed and hopefully get the plywood on the roof and maybe if the weather works out I'll get the rubber installed.

    • The Gophers:    
    • It’s still a great season. Hopefully Fleck can build a sustainable program. 
    • It most certainly is amp-hours related, although the numbers vary somewhat by discharge rate.    The RC number on a battery is basically the amp hours at a specified discharge rate.   That curve above is for a particular battery.    If you multiply the times by the discharge rate, looks like it is for 10 or 11 amp hour battery like the one in a Vexilar.   Multiply those currents by 8 or 10 for a trolling motor battery, so like 4 hours at 20 amps instead of 2.4 amps.      Basically using one set of batteries for two different voltages strikes me as a bad idea.
    • Lead acid battery discharge is voltage related not amp/current. Amp hours are time based on about a 15% drop in voltage which is the same voltage where a DC motor stops turning. 12v battery flat volts is about 10.5v & 36v battery at 30v & motors stop turning. If you don't turn the motor switch off, discharge will continue down to 0 volts but battery will recover when re-charged. Not good for the battery to drop volts to 0v as it reduces the life of the battery. Lead acid discharge rate chart showing volt loss.
    • Just one of those games where we didn't get the bounces to go our way like earlier in the season. So.........win the next two games, get absolutely crushed by Ohio State and then head to the Rose Bowl. I can live with that.  
    • All you guys still don't get it.   I didn't explain it well enough.    There are three batteries, each can hold 80 Amp hours.      When the 24 volt motor is in use, two of the batteries use some of their capacity, equal for each battery.   So let's say you use 10 amps for two hours.   Now you have two batteries with 60 and one with 80.   Run all three (36 volt motor) for 6 hours at 10 and two batteries will be totally discharged and one will still have some charge.   Any further current draw will potentially damage the two batteries that are totally discharged.      Of course the 36 volt motor will probably quit working as soon as two of the batteries are flat, but the concern is there.
    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
