    How high to tilt engine while trailering?

    I'd also ask, if you have a bracket, do you still use a transom saver, even if you have to fabricate one ? 30" bracket plus motor tilted up is pretty far back from the trailer.

    How to slow a boat down for trolling

    On my 226, I tie a bucket to the fore cleat. Bucket runs mid to aft, clear of fish being retrieved. One bucket slows me from 2.7 to 1.9-2.1 pretty well. Doesn't hit boat. No holes. Main thing to remember is to retrieve before resetting. Otherwise you end up with just a handle. LOL.

    Nah, When "perching", I exclusively use the little red gulp MORF grubs. Caught perch, halibut, and leopards. If I was to target larger perch only I'd probably throw an LC or a small swimbait like Mark said. My PB 16" BSP, and about 50 others like him were all on the little red grubs.

    Caught some little barred surf perch

    My experience, not much perch at night. I also noticed when going at the crack of dawn, the sun rise, just hitting the water also triggered a bite. For perch, I use a carolina rig with MORF, little red grubs threaded on a #1 bait holder hook. Larger hook, less deep hooking.

    Rockfish chewing and fish ID report

    Yah thats right Russ Worley, he had a screwed up leg like me if I remember. I raced with him in the mid 90's also. Wow, you stopped in 92'. My "career" lasted from 93' to 2001'. Aaron Cox, Pauls friend I think was on the team also. Johnny O Mara edged me out at the Midland Melee once in the...

    Rockfish chewing and fish ID report

    Winner is a longspine combfish. Usually I don't keep limits of rockfish, I exercise my shelton descender, but I had a special request for fish from a a neighbor and I fried up enough for 5 boys last night. They loved it.

    Finally got to outing # 4 on the new to me Cabo 226. The winds never materialized. Man does she fly with trim tabs. On the way in we hit 36knots, almost 40 mph, for a stretch. Then settled back to a comphy 23kts. Took out my buddy that was an original member of the first Team Yeti mountain bike...

    Gregor 17 - new to me. Suggestions welcome.

    See Woodmans build on his 14' Gregor, I'd keep the side steer, put a cable and a 40HP four stroke, seaboard can be expensive new, again, see Woodmans build for DIY ideas. Look closely for corrosion on hull but it looks like it was set up for FW.

    Trim tab mounting. 5200 or 4200 ?

    Thanks I saw that in Boat US mag this month I think on trim tabs But it isn't in the Lenco instructions, it just says a dab of 5200 in the holes also. More work but I see why it would really seal better provided the right epoxy, applied correctly is used. By coring, you mean raw wood/wooden...

    Trim tab mounting. 5200 or 4200 ?

    I see the instructions say 5200 but the other post, and my reply, got me thinking. What if I smash up a tab and need to replace it. I know it will delam or mess up the gel coat. Is 4200 good enough. What do you think other than I'm overthinking this

    Rockfish Descent Devices revisited

    At first I had problems with the shelton also, I rigged it with a sliding sinker above the fish like the instructions said and it's working well for me. 10 oz below. Dedicated stiff rod. I tried a 10oz mega bait to leave down and continue fishing but was snagging them on the jerk release so back...

    226 Cabo cuddycon trim tab recommendations ?

    Yah, I'm a little slow at work so had time to call Bill Hopper, local boat builder extrordinaire. kicker should come all the way down and just clear tabs. Kicker bracket is a garelick 4 stroke bracket. I will be reborrowing and measuring the kicker to be sure it clears the 12'ers, otherwise it's...

    No shit John,triton 91, didn't realize that was you. Hows the new sled going. Soooo, John, Cabo, gofast and seahawk, I'm seriously starting to worry about the kicker hitting the tabs. Do I need to reborrow the kicker, drop it to see how low and far out it goes or Cabo, you had 12 x 12's, did you...

    226 Cabo cuddycon trim tab recommendations ?

    Thanks for the pic Seahawk. I only have 17.5 inches to work with in the mounting area. Just like Cabowabo, I will probably end up with 12 x 12's. Going electric, now the choice is Lenco or Bennetts, Both name brand with good reps, may just come down to price. Thanks for all your replies, for...

    Learn from my mistake - check your wheel bearings -it's probably been longer than you think

    Heres my 2 cents. Trailer seals suck. even with the best service/repack seal install, water can and will work in. Often replacements are plastic mushy seals instead of the metal clad outer shell of the OE. Unpredictable exact dimensions but fit and get sent down the road. Trust me, the...
