Maybe bowfishing

More than likely an older bow will need a bow press to change the draw length. (Archer shop) If your DL is 27, IMO you'd be better off pull the 27" or maybe 26.5. It will help you reach the let off sooner. Also again, with those older bows just because it says 65lbs max draw weight, does not mean it...

1996 Johnson lower unit pinion nut rounded off.

I took it to a dealer with the tool and it wouldn't go on. It's like the nut and the end of the shaft are peened over from the broken pieces banging around in there. Then took it to a machine shop.

1996 Johnson lower unit pinion nut rounded off.

It's about 10 inches up inside the bullet with the throwout bearing and the propeller shaft in the way. It would be beyond my welding ability

1996 Johnson lower unit pinion nut rounded off.

The fragments of the gear tumbling around have buggered up the nut. I can not get a wrench on or a hold off it in any way. Any suggestions.The engine is...

Safety chains...you probably already knew this...

I had mine come off once. Crossing the chains and having the spare on the tongue kept it from being a disaster. Only damage was bald spot on spare.

Filling the gap. tracker hatches

After removing the carpet I have found there is a large gap between lid and frame. I will be laying down vinyl, which wont take up enough gap. Any suggestion.

helix 5 chirp si gps G2

Thanks for the input LDUBS. This is a newer unit. It dose have the transducer. Even has the plastic film still on the screen. I'll have to ask if there is a map card. I'm not a tech guy either. I'm sure there's a learning curve with the Helix. John

Stuck pedestal

Looking at the picture real close. It looks like there some type of locking tabs on the bottom of post. Do you have access from under the deck. You may need to pinch those tabs together to release the post.
