Fish House Build #2

Recommended Posts

Weekend update,  I managed to get the door installed and the plywood put on for the roof.  I had time to install the rubber but it was a little cool(54 degrees).  I would like to install it when its a bit warmer out so it relaxes a little better.  Hopefully the tin comes in later this week so I can get it installed this weekend.

The roof is finally on and I got some of the wiring started.  The tin came in over the weekend so I was able to pick that up last night.  I will start to put that up this week if the weather permits.

I got all the wiring ran yesterday.  I can start insulating this week.  I will be using the 1.50" thick pink foam board.  The plan right now is to have everything wrapped up by November and I will deliver it when I go up north for firearms season(Nov 9th).

Must have had a storm?  Good thing that big branch didn't wipe out the project!  😯

No Actually I cut it down.  I had to so I could park my fish house in place of my boat this winter.  It was too low so it had to go.  Plus it was hanging out over my garage pretty far.  Its also a lot less leave I will have to deal with in a few weeks haha!

Build update!  Things were put on hold last week as I had to do some repairs to my truck.  I got all the wiring finished up yesterday and I started putting up the insulation.  The plan is to get it fully insulated this week so I can start putting up paneling and T&G.  I will have more pictures as I get a little further along.

I finished up the insulating last night.  Depending on the weather the next few days I might try and pick up the T&G and paneling.  I have a wedding on Saturday so a good part of my day will be used up and I might be hunting on Sunday(got a pretty nice buck hanging around). So far I'm sitting pretty good to have it done by November.

Nice work.  Has the uncle ever came by to check on your work yet? 

Yeah he was down a few weeks ago and checked it out.

Dang, you just night finish by Deer Hunting yet! 😁

Yeah that's the plan.  My uncle owns a bunch of land over in Wisconsin and would like to use it for their season so the pressure is on me to get it done.

Things keep moving along.  I got a couple doors made for the cabinets and got the hole cut and hole covers installed.  I also finished filling nail holes with putty so a little sanding and it will be ready for some stain.

    • 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.
    • Del is correct 3ea 12v batteries in series are required to get 36v. 2 in series to get 24v and each battery 12v. You can connect a + and - wire to each individual battery, while wired in series, and run 3 separate 12v isolated devices. A + and - to either of 2 in series gives you 24v.   You NEED a "3 bank marine charger" which has 3+ and 3- charging wires which charges the 3 batteries independent of each battery. When one battery reaches full charge, that bank shuts off other 2 banks continue to charge until respective batteries are fully charged. Batteries will not overcharge.    You can run both 36v and 24v motors on a 3 in series batteries but DON'T run both at the same time. Current draw on the 2 24v batteries will greatly reduce battery life and under serve current on the 36v motor.   Best solution is separate battery banks and chargers for each motor and a separate 12v for starting motor and running 12v electronics.    Suggestion, carry a set of jumper cables long enough to reach from the battery bank to your primary motor battery. If your starter battery dies 5 miles off shore, just jumper to any one of the trolling motor batteries to start your engine.
