Re: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you to Bill Edmundson and Billy C. I am so happy I built my Glen-L Wee Hunk (Pegasus), hosted a few West Coast Rendezvous so I could meet folks and see their boats and participate in this forum community. I hang out a lot in a local fishing forum now and I have gotten a couple of ...

Re: New Member

Steve, I assume you are bringing that big Klondike to the Pacific Ocean to berth and launch, Santa Cruz, Monterey or San Francisco? Will you allow spectators like me that live near the coast to come watch if I keep my hands in my pocket, lips zipped except for an occasional awe and me and my dogs st...

Re: Didn't launch Bodega Bay last week, 26 mile Delta run

Here is the picture of Pegasus at Orwood Resort about 12 miles south of Bethel Island in the California Delta. I hit my 3 picture limit with the ocean pictures in the previous post.

Didn't launch Bodega Bay last week, 26 mile Delta run

I drove up to Bodega Bay to go crabbing in my Little Gem (Homer) with 5hp Nissan outboard last week but held at the ramp due to low visibility. Monday I took my Wee Hunk (Pegasus) on a 26 mile Delta run. The sturgeon, catfish, striped bass and black bass are starting to get active in the Delta. I ha...

Re: 8-10 foot swells outside Bodega Harbor in Little Gem

Solving the equation the sum of the moments about the center of gravity =0 for a body not in motion I am comfortable with the 55# 5hp Nissan 4-stroke when I keep the fuel in front of me and the 5 gallon bucket of crabs, sea water and my bubble box in the bow. I'll make a You Tube video of me carryin...

Re: 8-10 foot swells outside Bodega Harbor in Little Gem

How good of you Gayle to remember the Alfred Hichcock "The Birds" movie filmed in Bodega Bay. As with anywhere near the ocean I keep a hat on my head and my bait in a locked iGloo cooler, I have had those sea gulls steal my bait and come back around and drop a warm white sea gull poo on me :( Bodega...

Re: 8-10 foot swells outside Bodega Harbor in Little Gem

MinnKota Endura 50# thrust trolling motor connected with Fry's 10 gage speaker wire to Costco Marine Deep Cycle 85 amp hour battery 1 and battery 2 in the bow. It makes for good weight distribution and freeboard but no margin for extra speed needed yesterday.

8-10 foot swells outside Bodega Harbor in Little Gem

It was raining and 8-10 foot swells in Bodega Bay, I should have known the breakers were good when I saw surfers putting on wet suits and heading with their boards to the beach. I got past the jetty, I didn't mind the swells and the boat was taking it well but I was only going 1-2mph with my 50# thr...

Re: Bodega Bay crabbing in Little Gem

Hi Billy, I have not made any more guitars, just that 1 Grizzly kit steel string. I take the justinguitar.com youtube lessons but I need to get into a routine practice schedule so I can play a song. I took Homer out yesterday, 9.1mph with the 5hp 4 stroke max and 3.6mph with the 50# thrust trolling ...

Re: Stuck drain plugs - cut off treaded rod?

Cutting off the threaded rod pulling on the rubber with pliers and prying with the screw driver was the way to go, got both plugs out and inside of the copper pipe cleaned up in 15 minutes. I knew if I left that threaded rod and brass plunger intact and just pulled I would be putting it in compressi...

Stuck drain plugs - cut off treaded rod?

Denzil, I have had great luck with Costco deep cycle marine, my 1st 2 lasted 4 years but the 2 I replaced recently lasted 7 years, I have been better at keeping them charged, I have an on board Quest charger from West Marine.
