Front of Tracker Boat flooring solution

Josh, I found my 1436 tracker to be extremely unstable. Not much better than a canoe, really. I planned to place the battery in front of the center seat to aid in weight distribution, using aluminum angle as a base. Trolling motor on the transom. If you have to have a flat surface to stand on maybe ...

Odd Question...

Be sure the plugs/sockets will work with 6 gauge wire.

Odd Question...

Here's an idea. Use the proper plugs and sockets first. Then, later, change out the troller. You can reuse all the plugs and such. Cutting down your wire to fit what I think you mean is a common, 110 volt, household plug/outlet is NOT good.

14' - 16' Jon Boat Trailer

A picture of the trailer with the boat would help, especially the back end.

Help with troubleshooting 1998 merc 4hp

Sounds like a carb rebuild. And, of course, an impeller.

Need help catching thief/saboteur

Since you really only need the game camera for a week or so, I'd bet a local hunting/archery etc. club would have a member who would loan you one, given your specific needs. Talk to some sporting goods shops/retailers and see what they can tell you about local clubs. richg99 p.s. Throw some moth ba...

Need help catching thief/saboteur

Thanks for the help, guys. Her grandson admitted the first hose may have been chewed, not cut. The second one, I saw, and I think it was chewed. We had some nice video's of squirrels playing around her car LOL. I know squirrels can't turn valves, and she doesn't have a window in the right place to s...

Engine Repair Katy/Houston Tx

Spark and compression are easily tested. If your brother left fuel in the tank and/or carb, then a good cleaning may be all it needs.....and always an impeller, always. Are you mechanically inclined? You could save yourself a couple hundred bucks.

Need help catching thief/saboteur

Thank you, guys. So, can I assume the right trail cam will give me a picture or video good enough to recognise a person, PROVIDED it's within a few yards? I expected a little more distance. Still researching the finer points of different models. Thanks for that link, by the way. How about a security...

Need help catching thief/saboteur

I now deal with a sister-in-law with cancer. She lives in a R/V park with lots of pine and live oaks around. She chooses to stay there. Someone has been entering her rv looking for her pain meds(now locked in a box). She also locks her rv, now. I couldn't believe she left it unlocked for so long. Ha...

LOL not near Mike Kennedy's place are ya ?

After you get it all adjusted/repaired, it will look jam up
with a new paint job and some new decals.

How long should I let my motor warm up for?

Based on your own info, 15-20 seconds.....that's a 'no-brainer'. But a little carb tuning and plug cleaning/gapping may help.
