re: Used Boat Buying Tips - ultralite
I don’t know about ‘02, but I know there were aluminum casting issues with the ‘03 Yamaha 90s. Mine had the exhaust manifold corrode in one particular spot allowing water into the cylinder. The rest of the water exhaust jacket, thermostat, cooling circuit was pristine. Looked up replacement blocks...

re: Ducks Unlimited - ultralite
Put up a few wood duck boxes along a bayou, manage them, see the results, and call it good. Time to put them up is in the next month or so. At least you know the small amount of money and effort put forth is directly benefitting the local population....

re: Not a single duck out there - ultralite
[quote]Nets Baw, nets are up.[/quote] Really though, I wonder what effect wind farms are having on migration patterns. [link=(https://www.wind-watch.org/news/2019/10/19/is-wind-energy-killing-our-ducks/)]LINK[/link] Surely there has to be a lot of studies on this?...

re: Cloth vs leather seats in truck - ultralite
It seems the “standard” leather and even the vinyl seats have gone to complete trash for many brands. I don’t know if it’s because everyone wants perforated with seat coolers or what. Toyota’s leather from early 2000s is 1000x better than today’s. The new Chevy vinyl is horrible (it only ...

re: Old Lacross Grange boots leaking - ultralite
Is the crease above the ankle or along the sole? I would use black 3M 5200 Fast Cure and if you want a tire patch on top. If you can’t find that, 3M 4200 Fast Cure would work as well. The fast cure doesn’t run nearly as bad as conventional 5200 or 4200, which takes up to 7 days to fully cure....

re: Boat Single Axle trailer tires wearing quickly - ultralite
Also see if they are radial tires vs bias ply tires. Bias ply seem to be softer and wear much faster in my experience. They are usually cheaper and more than likely use cheaper rubber....

Water Softener for Camp? - ultralite
I’m looking for a water softener for a camp with well water. The two options I’ve come across are meter-based or time-based units. I do not want to needlessly go through too much salt while not at the camp as often (certain times of year). Is there an issue with getting a meter-based unit? W...

re: Bear Season - ultralite
Saw my first one this morning off Hwy 319 on the way to cypremort point. Thing was walking in the middle of a gravel drive and didn’t give a damn! People were at their camps within 200 yds. They are much bigger than I had previously thought!...

re: Yamaha F70 outboard thoughts - ultralite
Checking out the Yamaha performance bulletins on their site should give you an idea of how it’ll run.[link=(https://yamahaoutboards.com/en-us/home/owner-resources/all/performance-bulletins)]LINK[/link] You may even be able to pull some archived 90hp 2 stroke bulletins on the same hull and compare...

re: Trolling motor backing plate?? - ultralite
If you get a tapped stainless plate remember to use Never-Sieze or TefGel. The last thing you want to do is gall a bolt in that plate and have to cut out the bolts. Also seal the bolt holes with silicone/RTV sealant at a minimum, or a small amount of 3M 4200 around the holes in the deck to prote...

re: LDWF Releases Survey on Speckled Trout Creel Limit/Changes - ultralite
[quote]recreational shrimping season within 3NM of the beach.[/quote] Why include recreational in any of this? It’s too easy to take that away arbitrarily and not give it back. Commercial fishermen do a large majority of the harvesting anyway. Also, is nobody pointing out the fact that we’ve...

re: Newer portable boat gas tanks - ultralite
Congrats on the boat. I’m sure you know, but ethanol-free gas is a must, especially in those little tanks. Keeping the cap loose to let it vent will help your tank, but it will also let moisture in. Moisture + ethanol gas = water in the bottom of the tank, right at the fuel pickup....

re: How far in advance to trust weather/sea forcasts? - ultralite
It really depends on your location and the time of the year. One day is decent for wind/seas offshore... You also have to take into consideration weather from the previous 12-24 hours if you’re in open/deep enough water to hold a swell. The good thing about sites like Windy is you can compare ...

Lots of Wasps! - ultralite
Anyone else dealing with an inordinate amount of wasps this year? From the warmer winter maybe? Since March I must have killed over 90 around the house using a small pump sprayer with a dawn mix. They are mostly standard red/black with the occasional small yellow/black striped paper wasps. Some...

re: Catching gar in pond - ultralite
Wire/rigid hoop net. The gar will drown in it if completely submerged as they can’t get to the surface to breathe. Or a small top water if they like to sit at the surface and you can sightcast them. If you are into fly fishing, crimp a very small treble hook onto a foam fly and put it right nex...
