    Are Redfishers self-bailing???

    Self bailing through the drains just below the seat behind the console. I've had 3 18's with 115hp and never had a problem with back flow into the deck. Some folks install the covers with a ball system to prevent water from coming back into the the boat.

    Hey heweygoogan: What a dipstick answer. Way to help the guy out, SA. Pete, keep an eye out on here, someone will have one eventually.

    Jeep Super Bowl Ad

    Guys, in case you haven't seen this I wanted to post so you can. I have to tell you it sure invokes some pride. Hopefully it will run after a Kaperdick ad. I think I need to go buy a Jeep.

    Older Hewes TM Battery Location

    Always in trays or at least with tie downs. Never just have batteries loose in the boat. Screw in to the deck with a good dab of 5200 in the screw holes.

    Older Hewes TM Battery Location

    In a 2004 16 Redfisher, mine are under the front seat of the console. I've had a couple of 18s as well and always had the batteries in the console. Seems to balance out the weight.

    I Want FMT! What Would You Do?

    I havent seen FMT live yet, but based on the recs here I'm sure it's a great system. The idea of having to buy a new 9" or larger GPS for it to work effectively - on top of the $650 - is over the limit, at least for me. I've run the 10,000 many times from Choko and Goodland as well as several areas from Tampa up to PCB and I've only grounded in mud once. Seems that a good chart (not Garmin) and proper planning works fine, cost wise. I know I'm in the minority here so maybe I'll wait until someone buys it for a 5" machine, it doesn't work right and they sell it at a discount and I get a deal on a bigger screen.

    New Weedless

    That's a fine looking fly and the weedless setup is a needed thing for a rookie like me. The name of the hook is a bit much though.

    Under Gunnel Carpet removal

    Thanks for the suggestions guys! Gnarlydog: I bought a 39"x77" sheet to cut and install myself. I was on sale over the holidays for $109 - regularly $159
  10. I believe the one that resigned was SFWMD vice chair, Melanie Peterson, not the FWC commissioner Rood.

    Under Gunnel Carpet removal

    Yep, I have thought about using a sander to get it off. Gonna be messy any way I do it I'm afraid. I was hoping their might be some kind of solvent to do the job.

    Under Gunnel Carpet removal

    I am starting to do some of the cosmetic work on the 2004 16' Redfisher I got from Linesider159 a month or so ago. The hull is in remarkable shape but the carpet under the gunnels has to be replaced. I have purchased the sea dek to use and pulled the carpet off and I am now faced with the 14 year old dried glue underneath. It is hard and brittle and I'm looking for ideas as to how to best get it cleaned off. Maybe Goo-Gone or acetate or I'd appreciate any ideas or advice. After this I have to start on a rewire project. When I opened the console hatch I knew why Shane decided to flip this one instead of keeping her. It's not really going to be that bad, just straightening up and redoing some of it. I'll post some pics as I go on the project. I just wish it would get above the 40s for a high and quit raining up here.
  13. Just heard he is rescinding Scott's appointment of Beruff to the FWC. The Guv may be just the kick-***, get it done guy we've been waiting for!
  14. I believe the Governor is very serious about this approach to turning things around. His strong recognition of the symbiotic relationship between Florida's economy and the environment is real. He will do what he says, of course big sugar still has some friends in the legislature that may slow it down some. Hopefully he'll pull the plug on Beruff's appointment to the FWC too!

    ENP Boater Permit

    An earthenware vessel of excrement. (The part about $50) The course is actually well done and a reasonable request by the park service to ensure protection of ENP. A few years ago, I screwed up big time and ran aground on the west end of First Natl Bank in an area I thought I knew. I had Stoots with me and ended up being able to walk the boat off (long trip). I think that's about the most embarrassed I've been while fishing.
