Marcum LX-3 Question... Someone grab a tape measure, Please!

Recommended Posts

Alright Marcum users, I currently have a Zercom Colorpoint and am upgrading to a Marcum LX-3 this fall, the decision has been made!

My question, although odd, is what size (length x width x heigth) does a complete Marcum unit equipped for ice fishing have. Reason being I'm building a plywood insert for my Otter Den icehouse and there is a little compartment to put my fish locator in. I've currently sized the opening based on my Colorpoint dimensions. I'm about to carpet the thing and I need to make sure I'm allowing enough room when I get the Marcum.

Anybody got an LX-3 and a tape measure handy??

Thanks for the quick reply Surface Tension. I'll be carpeting tomorrow unless I have to modify my opening now.

Sounds like a nifty project you've got going. Care to post some pics / details when you're done?

Uncle Grump,

I can put some pics up when its finished. After breaking 2 minnow buckets, almost destroying my depthfinder, and losing a shovel last year while pulling my Otter behind the snowmobile, I decided I need some better organization.

The den sized Otter is pretty small so to get all my gear in there is a challenge. I think I have it figured out and fits the way I fish & my gear very well.

I'm going to work on a similar project for a bigger Otter sled once I see how this one turns out.

Stay tuned for the photos, it might be a couple weeks.

I just got it finished today! It turned out a heck of a lot better than I could have imagined. My Zercom Colorpoint fits in this compartment perfectly, with some room to spare, I hope I left enough for the LX-3. Anyway, it adds weight to the Otter but I'm only going to be pulling it with the snowmobile so it'll work out great.

I don't have a digital camera so I've got to shoot up the film in my camera before I can get the pictures developed, scanned, and posted.

Oh yeah, best part- I was up at Cabela's in East Grand Forks and they had a 60% of tent sale. There was a bin full of boat carpet remnants. I got a killer piece of carpet for $4.00!!! I was so pumped, it was perfect for this project.

    • 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. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
