Vance - good work getting this in the gutter where we belong.
Glad I went to the end of the thread and saw this before posting the same thing. Without weight, those light pots will be drifting around and...
Was there an opening ceremony?
A whole lot of people have told me there's no tuna in WA. Period. I tend to believe them.
that's where I go. not to mention the selection they have.
I had a similar problem with a big scratch on my new boat 4yrs ago. I immediately quizzed @Omakase to see if he'd repair it. He said he's only...
Andrew, I'd take them or trade for something. Especially if you ever get to 3-rivers for the transfer. Otherwise I'd come pick them up and at...
I have several ways of know if power goes out. But if the freezer shits the bed, this is what I'm interested in knowing.
Anyone have one that they like? There are plenty with just an alarm but I'd like one that's connected. Not sure how well it will connect inside...
Heard the se softy story from another experienced friend crabbing 8-2. Wonder what happened this year
I grew up freezing our fish and game in old paper milk cartons filled with water. Good old days.
For the record, I certainly didn't get the single 300 to save money. I thought it would be better than maintaining 2 engines. But I hedged and...
There were at least 25 of those in for repair. Not to mention other vp models. Good for you guys where vp works well. We all have our trade...
Oh hell yes. Closing that bad boy on the hunks of 5 smoked kings tomorrow! That thing is the shit & Thom is solid.
Damn that's nice looking quality right there.
You goaded me into spending $2200 on a vacuum sealer, now I have to get a $250 pocket knife!...
textbook utilization of the phrase! nice
It goes fast enough and it's nice to be at the rear helm when a rod goes off.
There's no fucking fish out there anyway - on either side. :finger:
We do if running really long wire. Less blowback. They work.
Defer to @DEEP MAGIK and @Walker Inc. I have a few things that many other boats do not. A few things in my experience with raymarine.
You will get a ton of opinions. I have a definite answer on my opinion but I'll instead make some suggestions on things I look for in...
No doubt. She needed to be put out of her misery.
What's the issue? I have the same truck year, color, trim, exactly but srw. Not a single issue. I lust for the new ones for the even more power...
Scat play and twins... this is going south quickly.
Where in the winter?
Hopefully you had the swedish equivalent of aquavit in good quantity.
I mean no offense but are all the people in those pictures "little people"? Because that's the only way those pictures make sense.
I have a spare tan alumaweld seat on a large metal box if you are interested. Perfect condition. Let me know if you want it.
Super sweet looking boat - but needs MASSIVE electronics upgrade in my opinion. Fortunately on a boat like that, the cost of doing so is irrelevant.
I troll tuna with my 25 HT and I have a 26OS. I would buy the new conventional 25 with EFI and NMEA out though, not the HT. Then if you leave...
Yard that one out of the Hydrilla!
Funny thing is the frame was picked clean like a cartoon. Seals and sea lions just chop the back bit clean off.
Coho krill sausage - still had room left to attach my popper fly.
That's interesting. I've been fishing Swiftsure for a lot of years. We have consistently seen crazy krill scenes with humpbacks and everything...
thx for the update. Heading out to fish 3-6 July. Swiftsure on the USA side this year.
Worth paying attention to this note!43-4400 is my cruising speed. WOT is about 5500 on my Yamaha.
Worth telling them to skip the foam. Note that the bigger buck builders dont do it - at least anymore. Also look for hewes and raider foam...
No fun. Out!

gasping for air is not dying doing what you love. we love being above the water playing with things that live below!
Bring it over. I'll do it for free as my trivial contribution to your generosity. Seriously. I have 2 kits ready. Or I'll come get it....
Only thing to add to Mike's comments is that if a little water does get in the bilge on the NR OS boats, there's nothing down there to hold it to...
damn i want to get out in blue water. very cool
those tuna trimmings are A-number-1 bait for crabs.
These 750s take more power than I thought!
Sorry if I was too subtle. Thx for the clarification.
Get that thing out! I've burned about 4-500 since 1 Jan 2019 and it's been an off year with a lot of travel...
We use that brand on our RC cars. They are good. Nice setup. Do you have it in some sort of hip pack?
I will say that at least in my boat, there was zero sign of corrosion inside those box stringers. It was pristine.
That is the original tank that came in my 2005 super vee.
That was a pain in the balls on my boat when i removed the foam recently. I used a modest sized spade bit on a drill and then a 1' extension....
but he meant it in a friendly way. eh?
bobbing like monica. :appl:
Easy fixes, hull good as new. It's the f'n foam not the aluminum. I went through the same thing this year with my 2005 super vee - but I used...

Appropriately made with atlantic salmon (fake fish)
I like it. Shot angle key. They don't present a lot of cross section normally.

@Cohoho I just did the same thing to my 2005 alumaweld sled. Probably 300-400# of shit foam GONE. I ran my sled in the salt for 8 yrs. I had...
DAMN! That's serious progress. Looks great.
How long until they close canary cause people can't tell the fucking difference between canary and yelloweye?
I think for flush mounts, the float test involves the boat plug?
I followed Kurt's lead on this one per above and a quart of bed liner in the box before the boat hit the water.

YES! Very cool. I wonder if the tilt sensor is available as well? Having this on my forward helm would be helpful to help me.

It's not an "opinion" that those are yelloweye. It is a fact that those are yelloweye.
nice catch mike.
@Emzbuddy please tell (or re-tell).

Having just one field tester is bullshit science. Send me a dozen as well!
I have 3 pots you can have if you want them. All large round pots.
SMI pots. Got at 3 Rivers Marine in Woodinville. Fished 2 days with.them compared to my SMI octagon pots. They fish well. Our 2 top pots were...
Interesting! Big boat to not be a walk-around. Looks purpose built.
Nope - with family and friends up in San Juans for the long weekend. Shrimp and lings. Using the boat as our ferry to avoid the crowds.

That is a shit launch. But close to fish. Launched there once. Done.
Props to you man. Good work.
That is pretty damn cool design @carrie's bait boy. Please keep the boat build porn rolling.
Who's going to do the boat wrap/decals?
Not trying to pick a fight but the answer is no. It is not a self-bailing deck. Definition of that is water drains via gravity out of the boat...
Thx for the reminder man! I've been meaning to get a couple jugs of that stuff and keep forgetting. Ordered from defender marine.

Dont fucking die fucker.
Great pics! Suggest turning up your gain a bit on the sonar - you are missing bait and fish with that low gain.
It appears Wooldridge is playing a whole new game with that boat.
goal of 300/month.
Cool! But shit I hate to cross the bar at WP. Now another!
2 Celines, bloody noses, big rim glasses, on a bench. You get it or you don't. FYI - could be pam andersons.

It's been horseshit slow for me but I'm in fucking Orlando. Sounds like the guys getting out are finding fish now. Hoping it turns on...
I didnt even know about this kind! Thank you.
Don't cheap out on the transducer. Get a 1kW Airmar chirp - in-hull or transom mount. Makes a huge diffrence with Ray/Garmin. Not sure about...
@Team Sency - might be worth getting a set of these (or similar).
This set is ok for...
Bummer of a doghouse on that boat - but looks in decent shape.
We went out and whacked a bunch of kings on friday/sat/sunday then played with coho in excellent ocean conditions.
If you want to credit my...
Also - coho are consistently in close, not offshore where I fish or i'd have never been able to get to them back in the day. Look at the 14'...
Great fish. I have trophy shots too. But most folks don't have the background or equipment to get those fish.
I can play the high grade picture...
Considered it but steering my trailer queen up to Neah for the weekend instead.
So who gets to fish. Only those with fatty 5th boats like mine? Or me, 30 years ago without a pot to piss in scrapping my way out to whack a...
There was a hell of a long time of my life when I couldn't just buy boats and trucks with cash. I could not fish kings, tuna because I didn't...

Hitting the coho quota it appears. https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/creel/ocean/#neah
Discount for sure. They are the best and know WTF they are doing - and they beat Costco prices. Also they are far more convenient and do free...
Laurence has a larger boat than yours Kurt?
I am supposed to be out of town that weekend but I would love to help out. I've never once dipped...
That's what you get when you have soft benches and cushions on the rails! :) Nobody mistakenly falls asleep with their head on my rails unless...
Just keep looking around til you find a prediction you like.
Returning for round 3 @Neah Bay. Was hoping tuna would be more reliable at this point or we'd be heading down to WP.
If any of you jokers are...
@goatram Shit - is it too late for $ donation goat? I f'd up and didnt get it done last week while traveling. Otherwise I can go straight to the...
Depends. When I cross the border at blaine, it switches over to CA service on the exact boundary line.
At sea, it does not.
What's her number?
On verizon, every time I drive out there, just before I get to snow creek, I get a notfication about latching on to Canada. But then it stays on...
Wrong only if you are left handed.
What goat said:
For Neah and San Juans alone, I'd never consider converting from Verizon.
Wonder if I can get in on that action somehow w/o being there this weekend. Love the feel and comfort of my Grunden boots, but I got them just...
Expected for an ETec, not for a Yamaha 4. PASS
I am a doctor of sorts, I prescribe:
I'm not going to say why. but I know that's not your mom.
There are a pile of fellow "idiots" on this board. Great report.
by random people with random agendas... though maybe this was meant as sarcasm.
I second the suggestion of talking to local shops. They are not...
If you have done overnights in the past, do you ever fish at night? Ever get in on a tuna bite? Wonder what it'd be like in these strong...
I have never posed with a fish like that. I don't know where it came from but he's been doing it for some time now and it's funny. Especially...
On trip 1 my buddy and I went out and got limits of the queen's kings, rocks & lings per normal. But I don't tend to post those trips.
THat is a beautifully-formed sentence.
My buddy and I launched out of everett, but we didn't make it out around to WP. We fished PNP/Pilot Pt area and had 2 nice clipped fish by 08:00...
And I think I'd stop up at swiftsure if I was making the traverse!
Cool story. How much Banquet did you bring for the boat? Just asking.
Holy shit that's not good anywhere. Glad it worked out. Not trivial in the best of conditions. Thx for the report @Walker Inc.
Word out to...
[ATTACH] My son, buddy, his son and I fished 3 days @ Neah this week. Sun/Mon/Tues and we had a hell of a fun time. @Chtucker note that we are...
Yes indeed. Launching 05:30 but out of Everett...
Cannot beat $$- per Goat's OP. They buy what they need, they get it at better price than we can. It seems oddly like cheating but it is not.
What's it get you other than not buying the cheap DEF?
alarming how tiny the fish were overall in the zillions of hero shots.
funny - thx for the heads up.
My Cannon digi trolls have this built in. I've never bothered to get the transducer required because of the issues Rod mentions. Also,...
Dont fuck up and bring any less than a 24pack of proper coors. It's beer intensive when you get into fish. It is also when you are not into fish.
@Jdubbs75 you'd be an asshole not to jump on this. Just saying.
Pro tip, when the tuna make a good run, slam that thumb down on the spool to...
I'd rather juggle two horses for a bit than walk while I find and break in a new one.
Hope it works out, can't wait to see the upgrade!
GLWS - should sell quickly. That's one hell of a deal.
Don't you have to have a boat to fish either way? :jig:
So damn funny because I had that exact same reaction.
GREAT fish either way.
Good for you guys! Did you find any partners? Wish I was down there to help.
How's the commercial boat doing?
No. You are not alone.
Interesting. That's a hell of a boat. Noted.
Your sweet as hell seawolf does not have a drain plug?
Sneaky. I like it.
My 26' NR OS has a threaded plug from the factory.
hell, after 200hrs on those you are playing with the house's money. you are in bonus time. I'd stop adding oil.
I think you need more data!
OP - even if you want to use the Yamaha stuff, you can order online, no shipping, no tax and better price. Plus you...
WD40. Old school bait scent
Needs a video on u-tube so you can shame him properly. Launching and retrieving is supposed to be an adventure not a well-oiled procedure.
My buddy makes awesome breakfast burritos which are a staple. I make a few loaded pizzas the night before a trip and we have cold pizza for...
No clue why the re-dredge on this thread about a boat sold long ago. But Mike, I thought you are now 100% glass. (You are! :) )
You don't have a problem. cold Turkey for 9 months. time for a bender. good on you. bummer about the crook back though
we lost good fish to sea lion furbags on swiftsure last weekend... pricks indeed
Crazy MPG humble brag!
FYI - you do have to pay, but the kick in the balls is optional. No judgement.
It's been said but worth repeating... Pimpin' ain't cheap!
If you are not a John's sporting goods hater, he has everything. That's often where I get my stuff. Or order it.
Funky tornado. Buffalo cant be bothered.
Good chatting with you Eric. Glad you got the family into some action.
Nice to meet you Clint. Nice boat.
A-6 allegedly is where we are at. Looking forward to it! We will hammer swiftsure but head out to blue dot or somewhere if that's a bust.
Note that you gotta get on this stuff at least 24 hrs ahead of time and continue throughout the fishing for it to be effective.
I don't have any but you can get what I use at almost any store.
If I wasn't already going to -actually for once- be fishing out at Neah, I'd jump on that in a heartbeat.
Both look like sweet daily commuters.
The thing I like about this prescription is first, it puts more sacrificial anodes in the front line and saves the expensive outboard ones....
This is an interesting comment - I'd not heard this. Do tell. If this has meat to it, I may have to get my dinosaur soon!
TOO SOON! :)
@jet2go - here you go.
Your garbage has been very helpful.- also your bible on re-zincing the boat which I followed chapter and verse (as you saw).
Bargain ones available for $90K.
Hope you have a DRW truck.
Maybe go camp neah in a tent this time and work out the bugs first before the next trip.
Or drive like a grandma....
@Salmonater feels bad for his small fry NR brother! :)
I appreciate the help.
Also, there's a simple way to get the AP pump to run one way...
Good for you guys. Love that place.
I think I have some air in the line down at the AP pump which is causing it to work intermittently now.
The way it's set up the forward helm is...
prefer hardwoods thx.
We will be there from Sat, 30 June->4 July. I have a white North River which is named North River. I don't know what slip I have but I'll be...
Is that bottom paint or some sort of fertilizer?
Pics or it didn't happen. I don't make the rules.
That's interesting. I would have thought a larger delta. You and Google know better than I do.
Regardless, you're gonna need a bigger boat. Just saying. I've re-watched a Spielberg documentary on this many times.
The taxman gets his share.
My invite still in the mail? :) Looks like fun.
I agree and I look forward to doing so after you buy it.
kingfisher is not in the same league with the boat you used to own. not close.
Interested in 2 or 3 or 4.
J F C!
FULL SALUTE! :finger::boobies:
Not sure. Last year, on the same crazy low, a week earlier, I went out with my wife and son. We knew it'd be shit getting out. When we were...
This is an example of why you keep plenty of spare beer on board.

It took a second page to start the rapid thread descent! #sad
I don't give a shit about the boat.

Accidents like that happen to all of us. I wouldn't beat yourself up over it.

Good luck. Sorry as hell I could not join. You run a fun boat!
I could quit anytime buddy! I PMd you with contact info.
I'm the joker with the CP470, cables etc. Plz email me @ [email protected] and we can sort it out.

But you are talking about those tiny juvenile ones right?
You have very nicely covered your bases with that combo.
Get her an anto-inflate like her parents have!
Naughty or boring. Well said!

ALL of mine some days. especially blackmouth fishing
Charter boat. Not expensive and you'll catch fish.
Honestly, there were no doubts that there are "MONSTER BUTTS" in most marine areas. Also cities. LOL
i share your disappointment
Get it out of the water.
STRAIGHT BACK TO DEALER ASAP!!!
Good salmon fishing out there right now? Not much competition I bet! LOL
Tons of them last year boiling the surface and indeed those are definitely juvenile Sablefish.
We used one as live bait to get a nice fat...
and the 3# of collar meat
You guys and that boat get shit done. Love it.
In this case, they also needed a bigger boat.
Norm, I think thou doth protest too much. You love being the face of fishermantanlines.com - just come clean.

Thx. I have all that stuff already (including the anchors). Just thinking of changing out to the real ladner ones from my existing.
Looks absolutely fantastic! If you have a favorite of the varios recipes, please post or PM!
Have any of you guys used these stackable Ladner weighted shrimp pots? I'm thinking of getting 4 of them but wondering how they fish compared to...
This is why we use port and starboard! The regs say port antenna I believe.
All those with 1 bait tube? WOW!! That is killer!
Smoked, the collar and the little bits around the fins are the best.
Are you planning to paint your NR sounder camo?
Your avatar is no flattie!
What did you buy?
Gone, but not forgotten. Sold
Only for seals and sea lions.
Wow. 10Hz refresh rate and only $150. Hell of a deal.
No you wont.
I describe myself as such. But for the potential buyer of this lightly used display, still in warranty, I'd use the phrase "electronics connoisseur".
Anyone need a 12" second display? Let me know
Bought mine, after 2 years I have to say I'm surprised how well they work. You can see it on the chirp sonar. Save PSA freebies for those who...
This - shelton is a great idea but the fish drop off.
NR does not measure these boats from the taint. THey measure from the base.
Also, I have an irrational need to swap the 300 for this new 425.
to me that's turning prime ling into lesser halibut. to each their own.
The collar and belly are the best pieces of meat on any fish that I know of.
No, it does not. Lots of people didn't go out because conditions were crap. It's not life and death that you get out to catch fucking halibut....
holy shit! sorry dude
3 years on my 25HT and the trim/tilt gets a lot of work and use - no problems.
Props to you for bringing it full circle.
different connector entirely

So is the coldwater coming out of retirement?
I have a 2015 25HT and it does not have any manual choke.
Nice work sir.

Um. Within a factor of two anyway. :-) I'd say a diurnal tide cycle has close to two highs and two lows.

Just glad it wasnt taylor swift when I took the pic. Also, beware of trees.
Planning to perform alchemy from Low-rance to Ray?
if someone buys your boat, do they get these pots? asking for a friend.
So... Below the coors can as well!
I mounted mine just below the coors can.

Good job. You guys got some damn nice sized black rockfish.
Excellent. Looks like brutal conditions!

my My-T-Hauler has been excellent. I got the heaviest one they make. not cheap, but high quality.

Did. Holy shit. 40 and your heart shits the bed. Damn.
Agreed. Then go in with cash and get a hell of a deal!
Agree. That's the cheap one they have on the lot. This one is a little less bargain....
For the thousandth time YES!
My trailer queen likes her bottom treated right, just in case.

Pimpin aint cheap but you did it well.

I always kinda liked the ginger on that show too.
same as last year for me in 8-2.
Here is the raymarine FAQ on this topic.
Should the vessel be equipped with a bonding plate...
About the meth? Yes. About the coors? HELL NO. I suppose I might not get sick if I didn't drink coors but I've not tried that experiment yet.
some kind soul made up 10 each of the big and little of the QC in my favorite flavor long after they were gone... I'm not throwing compliments...
Nice prescription Dr Fong!
Coors tallboys are a good breakfast cocktail and work for me.
my tm275lhw reads at full throttle. does not suck.
So say that a real hooker referred you? I can see where that would get a quicker return call for sure.
I assumed "Hali Pole" was a euphemism for a stripper pole and as such, quite acceptable.
I bet counter-rotators are harder to get parts on average for sure. But when I needed a new lower unit for my 2015 Yamaha 25 high thrust (not...
that is KICK ASS!
Aw hell, then count me out! :rofl:
Makes me wonder Norm, what the hell are we saving our boats for? Heh

1:0 is even more common in modern times!
It's good to hear they did simplify the regs for 2018! LOL
was already booked due to a saturday bump to monday.
Zack you can use my little NR boat anytime. Just leave the bread crumbs as compensation.
already going I think!
probably started burning oil on day 1.
interpret 200 as 299 and see brand new options I suggested.
That's a hell of a deal. I mentally assume good maintenance etc gets me to around 2000hrs. 10K is insane.

Bummer - I imagined you'd invented a better term than fucking new guy.
You got a lot of time since you went boat less! Heh LOL
I would prefer to get spots for free. W/O effort. PM me CORDS!
Are you a-holes saying you're giving out CORDS!!!!!!!! If you have more than 56 posts?
i put mine on the belt of the inflatable. i also don't have any interest in dicking with the innards of my mustangs.
Good clarification. But +1 to those folks if you endorse the work.
So easy. Again, mine is a little 26, not the 27. I've launched retrieved solo many times. Trivial. But only have done it just when adjusting...
At least you got the OLD part in the package! :rofl:
My runty old 26 has beer supplements.
A beer and a nice double view.

Will do - you and a couple others reached out to me with the same message!
Appreciate the pictures.
To my eye the Osprey looks like a whole lot more substantial boat.

Bonus is that I wont f-up the lower...
So far, so good.
I'll just leave this here as a refresher to y'all with 4.2l yamahas.
and then you get infected with the walkaround disease. be careful.
That's a solid offer. Good on ya!
My 25HT has been fine but I'd go with fuel injection next time -

Cool boat! Not a fan of their themed color schemes though. Rocket launchers? Why are the outboard rigging cables/hoses so apparently tight?...
familiar with the spiderman move - hence the red snapper correction rather than snook. unless "snook" is a term I don't know.
Wait, aren't you the salty son of that gun?
@goatram You been fishing out east? South?
I think you are doing it wrong, for what it's worth. I think it's not snook but RED SNAPPER.
My boat has to be the first to come out. A north river with duckworth bling? Not that there is anything wrong with that?
If that's sarcasm I'm with you.
Fucking guy I knew, once, back in the day, well he went to canadian waters. Saw shit that could not be unseen. Shit even chuck norris couldn't...
THat's super cool. But fucking hell, not even a proper beer for a job like that?
I hope it was at least tall boys. Not good, but at least lots...
Holy shit my proper tin boat is going around identifying as plastic!?
Totally! I am pissed not to have premium bling on my boat. I settled for off the shelf functional bullshit. And for fucks sake, from duckworth...
Except you gotta have some special pull to get him to do that nice work. I waited a long time to give him business and eventually went a...
I do not think WDFW (or state or fed govt) should do a damn thing to prop up businesses ("Olsons" included).
If my business goes tits up, WA isn't...
You never fished out of snow creek. Enough said. You had to tolerate a hell of a lot to fish there. Most still launched @ Neah and drove...
Not that this matters -
does that thing work for non-gingers?
Who dat built a really nice custom arch for my last boat. Could not speak more highly of the pro-job they did - even offered to pull my radar...
I don't need tackle at the fishing destination and I'm one of these really stupid people that doesn't give a shit about non-ethanol in my boat....
Nothing but love for my similar 26' GLWS.
Good luck on the 5-foot-itis cure. It's good to get that treated ASAP.
Thinking I now don't give 1 or 2 shits. Or zero
Mine was much later - 1993.
I've never liked olsens or anything about how they maintained their launch, store, docks, fuel pump etc. - but I...
Wait, it's a short fishery for halibut? Wait access to that limited fishery is increasingly expensive? Wait, the access point is trying to stay...
Damn the brotherhood is strong! Time to start pre-fishing the flounder pounder derby.
some things are so much better not spoken dude.
THe price is fair for their access. Including their moorage in my opinion. The launch day of is a complete shit show with an inevitable...
are you guiding up there Mike? if so, can I arrange to fish with you?
It's winter, I'll find a fight where I can. Or die trying.
Good! Too crowded at Big Salmon.
Personally, I'll keep not fishing that fishery/shitshow.
But again, that's measuring from taint to tip!
Got it and ordered and have the free software. I'm not smart like double checking and shit!
I connected one of these to interface to the older tech. parts of my network (Yamaha Command Link Plus and Standard Horizon 2200 strictly...
That is so damn cool!
I've been using the AP you just got for coming on 3yrs. It is great. Mine is networked to a pile of other raymarime stuff.
Without GPS input...
I am confused. " go to waypoint"is one of my main reasons for loving AP. How do you do that with no gps input to system?
if you are oblivious you can easily do that without autopilot.
AP let's me focus on obstacles and throttle.
let's me run 50 miles to hot CORDS...
Patrick told me that real beer hurts his tummy.
Disagree - if we are talking about newer (<5yrs) 1-ton diesels, Ford comes with the best engine and trans. Any statistic you chose proves it, but...
Is that a busch light type of job or a real coors type?
Yes. It might make a visual blemish, it won't make a structural one. Is my point.
It's winter, I'm all in for stirring shit. :jig:
Good tip. Also dont whack the gel coat bringing the anchor in!
Except for the wood bits of course!
I followed Kurt's lead skuffed, etched and used up a whole quart of bed liner to coat the inside of my anchor locker.
Really pretty @Omakase - nice work. @ericwa285 what is the zinc situation on that amazing boat?
Lighten up, Francis.
This was just a person driving along and a deer ran out in front of them. happens to be a trooper. If this has not...
I can't speak to that - as far as I know they are still working on it.
What I can speak to is that I am an electronics whore and hoping the...
Would it be OK if I installed them too?
