flip over question

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anybody has tryed to secure the flap to the side of the sled with either velcro, or snaps..

and by flap i mean the loose part of material that usually sits on the ground and where the canvas is attached to the sled. there is a gap in there and was wondering if anybody came up with an ingenious way (other then snow) to attach that piece to the sled somehow.

I think you have it figured out. I would give the velcro a try.

I think I'll also give it a try.

Great idea.

i tried velcro but it did not adhere to the fabric. it stayed on the sled pretty well so i think im going to bring it to a tailor and have the velcro sewed on.

I ran a lightweight chain inside the hem of the flap that lays on the ice, great if there is a snow shortage , the velcro sounds like it should cure the sled flap, good idea

I did this with my fish trap lite, stitch the velcro to the canvas with needle and thread, I actually used fireline. I also did the chain thing and it worked pretty well. The velcro won't hold against a strong wind.

Good luck

Walldoggie, You could also try heavy duty snaps. Pick-up a snap kit(includes tool) from a fabric shop for like $7 and pop rivet the snaps onto the tub. On my yukon, I first used the screws that come with the house. Then I converted it over to the snaps (on the bottom of the tub rail) and it works GREAT, seals well and doesn't come loose on its own. In the spring, I take off the tent, clean it, fold it up and store it in a rubbermaid tub. Never need to worry about mice etc.

I was thinking of riveting the velcro on to the canvas, and riveting on to the tub also. When it gets warm i will try to do this and take pictures.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • 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.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
