Lund cover

Had the same problem with my Alaskan - vinyl floor. Using a tip from this board, I made 6" x 6" squares using 3/8" plywood, doubled them and drilled a hole half way in for each pole. On the bottom, I...

Mississippi River

Maybe you are doing this already, but my experience is that the water has to be flowing. River is low in my area with not much current. Places where they have always been are not working this year....

spud bar

I should have mentioned in my post above that you need to make sure you have a hand strap tied to the handle (I used a thick dog collar, wraped around my wrist, and it works well). I lost a spud when...

If you get serious on the VW, check insurance rates. I dropped VW a few years back (had lots of them) when insurance rates went way high, as well as service at the VW dealer.

outfitter vs alaskan

I have a 1600 Alaskan tiller and do not miss the casting deck at all for fishing. The absence of a casting deck does give you less storage space though. I think its just a matter of personal...

Was reading on IceShanty board, that many are building smitty sleds to make it easier to go through snow. Basically its a sled on snow skis, then you put your shanty on top of that. Late last year I...

A few years ago, I watched a dealer winterizing 4 strokes. He changed the lower lube and the oil filter. Then was running some type of fuel mix through the motor - I am guessing it was mixed with...

New boat

Great looking boat! Congratulations. I , too, went with a lighter boat (1600 Alaskan tiller) this time around and it is much easier for me to manage. Just not as strong as I used to be. Looks like...

Fleet Farm

Wish they would keep creeping farther down into Iowa. Farm and Fleet is a loser for fishing equipment. Like night and day compared to Fleet Farm.

SS Prop

While not exactly your case, I used to have a Lund 1660 Pro V tiller with a 50 hp 4 stroke Mariner. I tried stainless props and I saw no difference in performance. It was more durable - less dings,...

Pumping gas

I know it takes longer, but I just fill a 5 gal gas container and put it in that way. It is one with a handle to release the gas and long nozzlethat I got at Gander Mtn. It goes in slow and solved...

Wasn't it rumored that the 1800 Alaskan would be redesigned to include a casting deck?

Unhappy GPS Coordinates

I'm pretty dense in the technology area and have my first finder with a gps (HDS 5). I've been given coordinates for several spots on a lake, but the format is different than what I expected. For...

Woodchuck damage

They can do alot of damage to foundations of houses and sheds. Collapsing, water intrusion, etc. Ever investigate how deep and extensive their burrows are? I had one by my shed and its vertical...

gas pump

Be wary of those pumps that Mernards and other sell. They leak like crazy and you will have gas all over the place. Also difficult to keep a good flow going because of air leaks. "Been there done...

Trolling motor mount

I have one of the sliders and I can move the trolling motor back from sticking over the bow, then secure it with a ram/ball support. Works great. I did e-mail Minn kota two years ago and suggested a...

I almost bought a 60 4 stroke and I have heard great things about them. Displacement seems to run larger in the models. But, the thing that nixed it for me was the slim dealer network. Doesn't seem...

Terrible situation, but remember it was one person. Not "people", not others rising in cities and gunning down theater goers, etc. This was one deranged individual. I don't think I could express the...

I'm the only one in the neighborhood who still washes their vehicles by hand. Pretty lonely in the driveway.

Big Tiller

Make sure you check the dimensions of the tiller handle - it will put you considerably forward from where you are now, if you have the standard handle
