fish finder battery

Just a thought/ As most fish finders run off 12 volts, where to put the battery can be a challenge, especially if it's a lead/acid type. Why not just use a 12 volt battery pack originally made for a cordless drill? Either ni cad or Li Ion. They seem to be infinately rechargeable, don't leak, and can...

1992 rivertrail 150

30 hp on a 15 ft jon?
seems a bit much to me.
flat out into a stiff wind may flip it.
jon's hitting wave or heavy chop tend to beat you up.
just my opinion

old mixed gas

Thanks for the replies, I am going to pump the old gas out and start fresh in the spring. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should try and clean the inside of the tank to ensure that there is no debris or sediment inside? The only way I know is to take the tank out, put a little gas in it, ...

Fish finder battery mount?

Although you can't see it in the pictures, I drilled a hole in the top for fish finder and battery leads. Lots of silicone sealant around the hole

Fish finder battery mount?

Here's my little rig. It's a PLASTIC ammo box,$3 at HF. A 8AH sealed battery in it with styrofoam padding to keep it secure. The battery is leakproof and so is the ammo can, And it floats!

Hauling a 12 foot deep v without a trailer

My suggestion is this. I know you don't want to put the boat on a trailer but have you considered getting a 5x10 flatbed trailer and hauling the boat that way? Its a lot easier to get the boat off something that is close to the ground. I use a 4x8 flat to haul my 10 ft john to small waters like you ...

Aluminum "Kayak"

I have an oppotunity to buy a 8 foot johnboat hull for $50. I was thinking of making it into a hand launch boat for one specific area. I'm too chicken to go the kayak route. The problem is that it's just a bare hull with no seats.I'd have to make a seat out of aluminum and secure it to the sides of ...

Poorly neglected boat, bringing her back to service

Everything looks great! That white paint on the trailer looks exceptionately nice. My only suggestion would be to cover the bunks with vinyl instead of carpeting as the latter will absorb salt water and cause corrosion on the hull. If you don't go out in salt, it won't matter.

Tisas "Hi Power"

God deal!
As a one time member of the 3rd. Infantry division pistol team I only have good things to say about Hi Powers.
The best auto loading pistols ever made boil down to three:
.45 ACP,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Colt 1911A1

9MM,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Browning Hi Power

.380,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Walther PPKS

IMHO
