Throw up a pic of your new trailer.. And how do you like it?
Guess they told me.... They updated the creel on their website.
Over quota in MA1,2 but still some left in the Strait & North coast.
They wont update the Creel numbers because they don't want us to see all the Poundage still left on the table.... just my opinion.
Check to see if its on 1watt, instead of 25w for send when you TX the mic.
Or is it no Bueno even if other boat is right next to you?

this shows why you need to balance your load properly.

Wait, You're paying for "Pro Install" and they aren't doing all the sea trial/commissioning of the AP to make sure its 100% good to go?
That only works when following E-tecs

Oh, THAT guy.......
So how was the fishing?
When do we get the fishing report?
let me know how you do.
I was 12-15 feet on the wire and set the baits WAY back. Like 100' feet back.
I worked the area out in front of the Cedar River & west. 80'FOW...

It might not be as bad on your 25 as it is on the smaller motors running ethanol. If you let gas sit in the carb on the T8/9.9 it gums up over...
XD-100 is $42/gallon. I use it in my 90/65 Jet on the lil-boat. CRAZY expensive is an understatement for 2-cycle oil.
I run a $70 Diawa Moocher as my main Downrigger/knucklebster setup. Works great. Several glass DR rods out there for $75-100 too.
You ever try swinging a fly in 20-30 mph winds?
Do you run non-ethanol fuel?
That is the elephant in the room on kicker performance issues.
Id like to get my hands on some 15p or 17p 4 blades as well.
Just to see how they run.

$50K?? Dam.. Id go with a parker if they are that much cheaper. I thought they were in the same ballpark.
Spend $200 on beanbags for the crew...
why do you say that? Ride is similar with both boats using standard seats. Softer in the NR if optioned with suspensions... As far as I know...
realistically, to keep the choices similar in price, you'd need to look at the 23' NROS. I think both are in the $90-95k range New.
Just get a 27' NROS and be done with it... Will keep the 2' itis away for a few extra years.
Parkers are nice too,
Whatever you do......don't...
I hope you can cast that better than you can an Avet! .
And now that I think of it, you owe me a Swimbait AND $50$

Way to slay!
Is your boat 9'6"? Curious what your weight is on the trailer?
And last but not least what transducer are you using on your garmin?
How about a newer blue commie float and a newer yellow with custom green pin stripe paint job?
The price would be right :)
Ice for what?
There are no Tuna In Washington!
Had them custom built to the specs I sent them for my fishbox's
kind of crazy to go fishing on a greasy flat day in August and be the only sport boat getting ice & the only sport boat on the grounds.... I think...
I bet you could use a Curt class V hitch & a tuner for that D-max!
Great deal on one in the classifieds!!

I'm into cheap dates for my thrills. Narrower in the hips, and easier on the wallet 2.4 mpg in the ocean makes me all kinds of giddy at the gas...
HAHA, Yeah those are WAY too bright to be fish from the Dirty South..
But nice job, that just tells me there are still more on the way!

Sand dabs lives matter..
These came out of a kings belly last week in WP.. might be halibut..
Do these count against my daily limit?
love the T-shirt too!
There are some fish around. I fished Yesterday out of WP.
It was a pretty solid day, even some toads that were in the 30# class.
Old School Puget Sound Relic.
This is Dads setup from back in the day. I think there was a guy at Narrows Marina that put these rods together....
You know what they say about boys with big trucks..
Just looked it up to see what it fits.
Looks like 2001-2010 GMC/Chevy 2500 & 2500HD trucks 6'(shortbox) only
They need some grundens.
I know there are lots of EZ loader trailers that need a makeover.
Will throw in a Yellow Buoy, Free with purchase....
Dropped the Price(s) $100 for hitch, $75 for tuner/reader
That thing has a serious dance floor!
Those Boots in the new avatar sure look a lot like Mikey's missing pair.... Just sayin.

Everything is gone but the Buoys.
How about $40 for the pair?
Is the "lower limit" set to 20'? That could possibly be it.. but seems too easy to overlook
Thought I smoked one of my transducers once,...
catching a salmon in MA11 is like catching a Muskie.... they are a fish of 1000 casts, or 100's of hours trolling back & forth.

Nothing worse than a Johnson that doesn't work correctly.

That's a fine resume'
But how is your scrub brush game? that's what really counts in a solid Boat Ho.
It shouldn't have been to hard to land an oversized while chumming the waters.

Does a tuna count as a Washington tuna if it's caught SW out of ilwaco after getting halibut limits???
... asking for a friend..:jig:
I put the Seaqualizer to use several times this past weekend. It works very well.
Its not cheap, but it works way better than the Shelton fish...
Probably so we don't see all the long line sets INSIDE the C Closure......
Looks like there was either a kicker or an electric trolling motor there at one time.
Sounds like you need a longer Johnson, or maybe a Yamaha...
Sold pending Finatic picks it up!
This is fun, I may do more spring cleaning.
He already picked em up.
Dam... I must be underpriced..
Sold Pending P/U
used a couple times, then stored inside.
I'll toss the ashes out when it sells :)
Comes with a cooking grate as well (not pictured)
Haven't used in a couple years after getting a Bradley's.
Temp gauge seems to be a little off...
2x crab pots.
Fully rigged with bait cage, 100' leaded rope & buoys.
Like new, used maybe 3 times.
$50 each or $90 for the pair.
Pay the $10 for the 2 Barbie Rod Endorsment.
I'll sleep better at night, knowing you won't be cussing at the bilge pump wiring ever again.
Re-Sale Value after 10 years.... Nuff said
18 months too late, or I may have had this in my garage..
Oh man, I didn't know Montana Dave and Hollywood were on the TW boat.
But I guess its a good thing I didn't say HI on the water or your MF'ers...
That's a long drive,
I'll troll Darrell on June 14th instead.
That's a loooonnngg drive to sit around playing Poker while the CG keeps the boats in port. Who's hosting the Poker Tourney?
Does this Hollywood guy do exterior paint? I got an easy exterior house paint project that would really bump him up the Tuna Roster!
WDFW will probably say we still caught 10K pounds that day.
Good thing it doesn't mention anything about CLEANING the boat after a trip...
Because that is MANDATORY for any passengers on my boat :finger:
I think the phantom would be the better way to go. Its a LOT easier to catch than this Mavic. I was humbled on the flat lake day, it wont be easy...
I believe NorthRiver uses Matson non-skid on their floors & around the gunnels. Its good stuff
^^ I think that lip on the roof of the Ducks really helps keep the nets up there and from sliding off
Always wear your float coat
And listen to good music :)
Now that's how you plan a bait tank into the build. No loss of floo rspace on that setup!

Curious to hear how the shrimping was for everyone, especially in the areas that were cut back to the new 4 hour season.
I was in the south...
We float like a cork. New ball-less transom works great, and yup, got our fish. Easy Peasy.
wow. I heard that big BOOM when motoring out of the marina..
I thought it was a huge mortar and speculated it was a "seal bomb" to disperse fur...
sounds like I was just ahead of that fiasco...

Not much trickle down into the local economy when the fish is immediately shipped to Oregon for processing rather than done here in WA.
On the side of the road out of the back of a truck??
curious if those are/were counted...
26,000 # in one truck, in 39 hours of fishing..
Truck rolls into ditch......
Not surprising that there is the aroma of Maple Syrup and probably jelly aboard the Kelly Ann
I have a pair on my boat. I only use one at a time... saves fuel. LOL
Great motor(s) so far, 130 hours.
Why pay sales tax? Go south.

Yamaha, unless you get twin E-Tec's. You'll need the redundancy for when one of the ECU's or powerheads go down.
When they D/X the early run, didn't they offset that with more Springers and summer fish?
Those Custom Rod holders are what's bringing the price up. You have to pay up for that sort of exclusivity

Now that's making more sense. Your boat is 3000# heavier than mine, you are probably more weight than the 29' x 9'6" NR's. So yeah, twin 200's...

Is your boat 9'6" or 8'6'?

It would be interesting to know the weight of your hull vs the newer OS's.
As Tony G said above, I don't think there would be a need to have twin...
me thinks your boat weight of 4600# might not include your motor or fuel, that's "dry weight" of the hull.

Well, it was 20 fish by the time you got there & I stopped fishing the last 1/2 cuz we were plugged.. plus we were just waiting for you to show up...
what sort of fuel numbers you getting at cruise and at wot.
That's a well equipt OS.
Stacy & Laurence have it correct. The "livewell" on a hewescraft Alaskan is a Transom fishbox that hewes plumbs in a waterline and calls it a...
only blocks aminals that hunt using their Lateral Line.
dam, that's almost the same price the tweaker sold my T9.9 for.
Should go quick
Is it fresh water only use? Guessing so since its in the lake...
I think I'm going to stick with buying Merc's when I need anchors.
I got a tanacum 750 & a tanscum bull 750 a couple years ago.
My researxh concluded that mechanically they were the same, just a fancier reel...
Yup, put them tight to rail when full & put our bodies over too, to get boat to list. No ingress of water.
Then did full on dump of bucket to...
I know. But I tried to use small words so you could follow along. :)
You want 9 troll rods?
That sounds like the making of a cluster-fuck to have to clear on a baitstop.
I'm sure we can arrange a test date.
But there's no replacement for Displacement!!
the Rec boat is named NapTime... That's just too ironic.
I'm not sure if what I had was an epidemic or not, but my balls were frequently sticky and made cleanup more of a chore than I wanted. So after...
My experience with older 2 stroke kickers is they like to foul spark plugs when trolling for hours on end.
Sell both & buy a used T8 or 9.9
Lakes & fishing that far up river, I think a tiller sled would get you the most bang.
Something in the 18' range 115/80 jet is the right HP....
Is that including the trailer?
my mpg goes down with speed. A little better than the Parker posted above at 30. I get about 2.3 there on flat...
Ok, maybe that makes more sense, except the RPM's. That would be a lot of prop slip to be that high @ 25 A boat that's 9700# would be under...
Something is WAY wrong with your 4cyl 200 numbers. I've never seen sub 2.2 mpg numbers, even in the ocean loaded with tuna, while running 25mph,...
I don't like drilling holes in my boat either.. So I went with the little GT51. works well at under 30knots.
I still may try more adjusting of...
Definitely not a Thresher. you can see the notch on the back side of the tail fin near the top. Threshers don't have that, and it shows how...
I must be your Huckleberry.
Ive got the 27 with twin 200's. I want to try and get it wet in the next couple of weeks to test a few things on the...

what drone do you use?
I was hoping to be able to go with one of those metal RV car ports..
But since I seem to have tweakers in my area, I had to go in a different...
I just brine my Jigs overnight in Brine-N-Brite.
^^ cool idea mounting the Dingy motor on the transom.
its only over if your boat cant make it to the 126 line.. Nice color & 60* water there waiting for the taking :)
if you aren't in a hurry I'd recommend coming west and going to the Portland Boatshow. I think its mid January. You should be able to see most...
who let that anchovy die on the deck!!
Laurence demoing Norms Stripper Pole..
This is gonna be one sweet kitty!!
backing down into chop with open transom like that is beyond dumb, then moving to the stern to further sink the transom and let water flow over =...
that's interesting on the bow deadrise on the Ducks. They used to claim 60* and 20* in the back. I wonder if they changed their design? Might...
next time... Sharing is Caring..
lots and lots of crabs. [ATTACH]
And I only have one barley pop in the fridge... poor planning on my part tonight.
Its not about water making it over the sides, the side height on the Hewes is awesome. Its the water that makes it into the bilge from washdown...
if you are looking for primary salt boat, I would only go self bailing if you are considering aluminum.
if they want, I'll demo an open array for them, and give feedback. I wont even charge them to put it on my boat and do the testing.
I should fit right in.
I was thinking of going Grady, but couldn't get myself to wear Crocs or Tighty Whiteys nor would there be any spooning in...
NorthRiver needs to become a sponsor, so you bitches cant flame us NR owners.
I'm gonna skip Sat, and head out on Wednesday. Looks like a fun day for a boatride.
There are still tuna out there?
That first pic looks like you may have spilled a little something on your deck.
Someone needs to jump on this. You will have sore arms. Fishing is WFO down there the last couple days.
If I didn't blow out my elbow I'd be...
I have noticed that the wiring on some boats is lacking in quality for the marine environment.
I hope its an easy fix.
I think it had more to do with he had Honda's :)
Sheesh.... Those Defiance guys..
Coming back in on Sunday afternoon, we had one of those 29'ers follow me thru the cut @ the sunken Jetty....
20.5# is the state record... Just sayin..
that's a nice yellowtail
The Terrafin chloro from tonight tells the story. You're gonna have to earn them right now. Looks like 70 miles to the promise land to see if...
Some of the Grady Girls are Whiners...
Dr. Fong must be a closet Aluminum guy...
I had a great time up there with the Peddler in 2013!
Running a Yami250 on just the garden hose/muffs is a big NO NO.
As stated above you cant get adequate flow to the impeller, and will risk overheat...
Thx for the report Dave!
Its just money!! I say do it. I know a guy that might buy your 2500 ... For the right price :)
US Marine in Oly (maybe)
Had Milgard out to my place on Monday. Thought I had 3-4 bad windows. Turns out it's 20.. The guy was awesome. Took measurements and I'm...
Those slabs are a tad bigger than remnants...LMAO
Im not sold on running a T25 at WOT to troll, especially if its for hours at a time on a slow day, pushing 5000+ pounds of boat. I can see that...
Another fun trip, and slowly getting the boat fine tuned and the new boat bugs worked out.
The C&R the peanuts was a great idea, in theory.....
Id Be all over the trade if you cover my airfare to Costa Rica :)
Are they in yet? Seems about 2 weeks early.. Might have so splash local this week
Are you finally going aluminum??
Here's a hint.. 100g:cheers::jig:
Happy with my WPS BAG.
I just wish my fish box was about 2x bigger
You guys really made a mess on my boat..
well, that's one way to flush out the bilge.
3' Swell Forecast, I might sit this one out. I'm worried I might get passed by an Xtaero on the way out and would have buyers remorse for not...
How many shrimp was that Lori!!
The BoeShield "Lubricant" isn't there by coincidence...
The one on the Right is spot on accurate for Jen.
^^ that has to be the brightest MA13 King ice ever seen
Preloaded. There is the option of running it on "fishing map" or "navigation". The fishing setting is high detail,
I took this shot while out Hslibut fishing.
Using internal sounder module & 600 watt GT51 transducer. Garmin
Fully networkable, connects to...
Were you guys fishing on an Xtaero? It looks like it rides a lot like a Grady, Only Better!
If you like stealing shit, find me a T9.9..
... Or a Killbag Rack!!
That brings new meaning to Thread Crapping!
The tuna log
they definitely need to fatten up a bit. But they are eating well out there. Tummys stuffed
just my one lonesome trailer in the boat ramp parking lot in WP today!!
Just US, TailWalker & Coleman out there today...
they should have moved that poundage to MA2 so we wouldn't have to drive so far..
Ive had Rider Dungees on my shrimp pots pulling from 275-300'.
But Ive never actually targeted them that deep to see how many are really down there.
Crazy ass Hewescraft Owners!
Extremely familiar. And not to mention the "smoking hot" price..
I know this is a long shot, but looking for info on a T9.9 motor that was for sale on Craigslist this past weekend. (6/9-6/10)
If you bought this...
is it me of do those hinges look like the BD salute x2?
dam. You got iron in the water on that side of town?
is he sure its not a scammer trying to work him over?
something is wrong with your hatch if your bilge comes on every 5 minutes.
Is your Bracket the one that drops down in the center for a single??
Yup.. Single screws & tuna
You need twins or stay tied to the dock!o_O
Is Mainer wearing MM's "BOOTS" in that picture?..... Coincidence??
If you have an E-Tec... Don't even try it..
Bad math, He's at least the 3rd owner.
I could use that 9.9 though.. >:(
I was wondering the same thing about oil/grease on the 2x vs 3x axle trailers from EZ Loader. My last boat had the oils and it was the most...
lol.. I was just gonna say, I saw a lot of them as trailer buoys this year during shrimp season
Dam.. That sucks!
Isn't that the look after you take a swig of Coors?
Are those the original motors that came on that boat?
I may have to catch the State Record AquaPod Caught Tuna this summer.
Oregon Tuna Don't Count.
..... And soon the hunt for the $500 Tuna Begins!!!!!
I have the same setup. Easy Integration with the plotter and overlays.
Only complaint is Ive had a couple of hiccups where the radio squelch...
I have an Etec and a few Yamaha's.
I have to say that changing the oil every 100 hours is cheaper than giving the Etec the XD100 it like to drink
Just curious, how many hours you have before needing the new powerhead?
^^ I agree,
If your Hull design cant accommodate a Transom mount transducer as they are designed to by installed, then opt for a thru hull. All...
that placement of the Transducer is interesting.... Looks like a GT51 Garmin.
I have a feeling its not going to be very effective while on plane...
^^ that kid has potential
perfect eaters right there
do they sell them in singles? I hear MM needs one
Tuna for Halibut bait?? Are you serious?
I counted 18 of the "big boat" charters just on the spot I was fishing on Tuesday. Each with 12+ people on the rails fishing. Plus several of the...
I was gonna say, we have had enough boat builds on this site alone this year to get up near $1M in economic impact to the area
so what's to keep a commercial from setting longlines, and NOT calling in their catch to you and keeping the catch and selling it to people who...
What machine you got?
What's the consensus on the 215 and retort bags??
Ive heard yes, it works...
I know a lot of you have the VacMaster 215's as they seem to be the go to Chamber Vac for those living on the working class budget.
Always pack enough clothes and extra gear for four days at sea, you never know what the weather will be like. So bring it all!
When going on...
Why would a charter ask to up the limit to 6 from 5 for them?? I don't see that making or breaking their business. Would one more crab really...
I don't have to make Chum for halibut.
I just bring the right crew and they spray chunks over the rail periodically. It seems to work.
What's the best source for the heavy plastic fish bags you see the charters use?
Does Englunds in WP sell them?
I like the jack-pole platform on the back.
make sure you check the shift tube is in correctly, as in fire up motor and put in gear to see prop spinning
I know someone who didn't and...
Look, they brought a Highchair for MM to use... :)
If you're on the fence, I can toss in a free Yamaha Hat to sweeten the deal.
When its my time to go, I hope its the same way!
I have the ipad2.
Seems to run fine with the Garmin Helm app.
Not only is BD entertaining, it is also educational. They work great on Toilet paper too.
Good stuff Tom,
What are you using to mount the Ipad & keep it from getting wet while on the boat?
ok, that's not the answer the guy who blew this years wad, and next years wad on the boat was looking for.....
Maybe I can set up a go fund me...
[ATTACH] wasn't there some people on here using ipads at their 2nd stations serving as plotters/sonar screens
I'm wanting to go this route and am...
If he gives you a receipt, I'm going to have to see it before you go out his gate.
Orange Balls are a lot easier to see than BD stickers.. Just sayin.
I think you can stack them inline and with only slight modifications it will work like a DuoProp.
Bump.. Gotta be some twin owners who want to get a lefty..
BeanBag or KAISR... HMMM
I think the Goat should buy it and weld it to the roof of his boat.. You can never have too many rod holders.
The magic marker labeling above the switch panel is something that could probably be improved upon as well.
selling my spare props from the old boat. Both have maybe 2-3 days of use. No dings.
Both props are LEFT HAND ROTATION
Salt Water II...
This one has lots of holes below the waterline. One can never be too careful.
At over $1k, Thats BS if that's what I'm looking at paying.. I'll...
Anyone have the skinny on the best place & cheapest place to get a reliable Re-Pack on a revere Liferaft, preferably south of Seattle??
Don't be so cold hearted. Get the crew some bags, and then just charge $10 for them to sit in it... Same with electric reels for Halibut HAHA..
You just need the Optimus 360 (joystick) and be done with it. Its just Money... :)
All of the sudden I feel very Inadequate... Nice boat!
Someone got a STEAL on that net
Wish I would have checked in here sooner.
just an FYI for those who havnt gotten a MMSI, but are going to.

I might be able to hook up with Stacy & grab the Gel Coat, then get Mark's props back to him at same time.

Seems as if the internet fishing is slow, so I'll throw up some boat porn. Not nearly as impressive as all the other build threads on here...
You started Aluminum, went Glass, and are wanting to come back!!
Its all good, some guys are just a little slower on the learning curve :)
Of course I was there!!
Shit like that only happens when you have the skillz of an alloy guy on the boat to get it done. :D
Naw, I don't want to crap in this thread. You can swing by my place for a private showing.
I honestly was thinking it may have been a typo.
Gradys, BMW's, Crocs.. Yup those guys are cut from the same cloth..
Grady owners have bait stops?? I think Ive seen more White Unicorns.
I did! That's why I asked. Seeing how I just towed home a 27' Northriver w/Twins yesterday, and know exactly what I paid in todays market....
Is $155k a typo?
I call BS on an OX66 getting 2mpg pushing that boat. Hours are pretty suspect too for a boat in that part of the country.
whats your price/100?
looks like the ocean is a lot nicer this morning that what the forcast was calling for.
For me it comes down to Re-Sale value/economics
Recently sold my 2008 Tin boat with 700+hours on the motor for 90% of what I paid for it new......
