Re: What to do ... with Chum Salmon

Thank you and agreed. Typically I smoke it until it is oily shoe leather and finish with smoker at 225° for an hour per USDA/4H reccomendations.

Bring on the chums, we're out of "Chum Dog Treats" and need a new batch.

Re: What to do ... with Chum Salmon

Smoked chum treats for the dogs. Cube or strip the chum, smoke unbrined and vacuum bag in weekly portions. The dogs love them and they are good for them.

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Good to hear Chris. I would still get the appropriate primer, paint and clearcoat to touch up the damaged area. It will help check any potential corrosion. I think West Marine has manufacture specific paints in spray cans.

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

"Spinning the hub"; most props are built with an internal spline that slides on the lower unit prop shaft. The spline is molded into a rubber donut that is pressed into the actual prop body. The failure can occur at the friction or interference fit of the rubber donut with the prop body or as a fail...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Either way I would have them check it out. A new prop shouldn't spin the hub and would probably be replaced under warranty. If it is not the hub it is likely a mechanical problem that would be covered under warranty.

"On the way back into the marina, I went up in speed, and after a moment there was a change in the sound of the motor, and what felt like a loss of propulsion.

Oh Man, No Fishing for Me!

Yesterday I was southbound on I-5 near Conway when the truck vibrated for a second, shuttered and started hopping down the road. At one point the truck was sliding sideways but I was able to get it under control and safely to the shoulder. While waiting for the tow truck my poor truck bled to death ...

Re: question about livescope power use

You have the same motor set up as I do, a 150 main and a 9.9 electric start kicker. I have never had to "top the batteries off". We have been on extended trips of a week or more and have not had to resort to an axillary charger. My boat has a full Lowrance system including; HDS 9" Gen 3, autopilot, ...
