Re: Squirt need skeg?

No skeg on my Bingo, I like the way it turns. Slides just a bit, but that's the feeling I like.

Re: Bingo Lake Run

Ok, thanks, I get the idea now. I will see how the new engine performs and make a decison at that time I guess. Thanks for all your help guys. Still have a few months to go for me up here in cold Ontario. Ice usually doesnt leave the lakes till 1st or 2nd week in April.

Re: Bingo Lake Run

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Motor was trimmed at the lowest pin, the new motor will have power trim and tilt. Battery is located up front as far as I could, about halfway up the bow to help with the weight issues on the stern, but I may put a sand bag way up at the bow peak when the new motor is on, w...

Re: Bingo, Launch Planned Sat Sept 19th

vent was open, tank and line were replaced. New line. Maybe a small hole in one of the fuel lines under the cover leading to carb. I will more than likely work on it next spring since its getting a little late here and the weather is turning fast. I'll see if I can attach a few more pictures.
