Re: Trailer Hubs question?

Sorry that’s why the 1st thing they do is issue a state of emergency. This allows them to override the constitution & do what ever they think is right to protect us. Including mobilizing the NG if they decide it’s necessary.

Re: Bridge to Woodward Island

The bridge was built to replace the ferry because the water district, that owns the two very large water pipes that cross the island, felt the ferry was not big enough to get the repair equipment & materials across the canal in a timely fashion if the pipes were damaged.

Re: Transducer on trolling motor

I mounted mine using the specific mount from Transducer shield & saver for my exact TM. It makes a difference on which model you get based on your particular TM ie. whether it has a built in transducer or not. Works great but takes a little getting used to.

Re: Transducer on trolling motor

I mounted mine with a transducer shield & saver for this application. Shield & Saver makes their mounts for specific TM brands & applications. They’re expensive but having a TS transducer expossed on the bottom of a TM makes no sense. Takes some getting used to but I like it so far.

Re: Dual Axle, Garage, Best Way to move boat

I used to use plastic sheeting. 6’ wide 10’ long. Fold the sheeting twice so it’s 2’ wide X 10’ long. Once your trailer is on the plastic you can turn & push it fairly easily. Nothing beats the Trailer Valet.

Re: Par Dee Lake Question

Just remember to have your boat clean & dry including the water journals in your motor. If they lower your motor & water comes out they not let you in. Tip for fishing Pardee.
1. Go during the week.
2. Make long casts
3. Be quite.
I love this lake but the learning curve is tough.

Just a suggestion without going into details. Instead of weighing in up in the parking lot, 200 yds from the water, weigh in down by the water where there was plenty of open space. This will avoid some of the problems I saw them have.
