Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Good to hear Chris. I would still get the appropriate primer, paint and clearcoat to touch up the damaged area. It will help check any potential corrosion. I think West Marine has manufacture specific paints in spray cans.

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

"Spinning the hub"; most props are built with an internal spline that slides on the lower unit prop shaft. The spline is molded into a rubber donut that is pressed into the actual prop body. The failure can occur at the friction or interference fit of the rubber donut with the prop body or as a fail...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Either way I would have them check it out. A new prop shouldn't spin the hub and would probably be replaced under warranty. If it is not the hub it is likely a mechanical problem that would be covered under warranty.

"On the way back into the marina, I went up in speed, and after a moment there was a change in the sound of the motor, and what felt like a loss of propulsion.

Oh Man, No Fishing for Me!

Yesterday I was southbound on I-5 near Conway when the truck vibrated for a second, shuttered and started hopping down the road. At one point the truck was sliding sideways but I was able to get it under control and safely to the shoulder. While waiting for the tow truck my poor truck bled to death ...

Re: question about livescope power use

You have the same motor set up as I do, a 150 main and a 9.9 electric start kicker. I have never had to "top the batteries off". We have been on extended trips of a week or more and have not had to resort to an axillary charger. My boat has a full Lowrance system including; HDS 9" Gen 3, autopilot, ...

Re: Downrigger mounting on Sorensen/Livingston type boat

I didn't catch how long your Sorensen is but a 2x6 layed gunwale to gunwale at the oarlocks works great. Once in place, drill up through the oarlock to get the right angle. Then through bolt through the board and oarlock. Attach the DR mounts to either end of the 2x6. Easy-peasy

The lake has a few monster rainbow, lots of skinny to nice cutthroat and a fair population of kokanee. Along with the usual 10-13" ...
