    Scott 852

    I was just checking to see if anyone on here or anyone lurking has an 852. I'm considering buying one for my next boat project and would like to check one out in person and possibly take a spin with it. I know this is a long shot because I've only ever seen one in a boat in Alaska getting...

    Donkey Creek Lake

    Made the adventure this weekend, dipped some hooligans, burnt some gas, and caught some pike. Got the boats all the way into the lake, and it was still mostly frozen. Managed to slay a few pike in the open areas but i think they are still pretty lethargic with the cold water temps. Good...

    chines and steering questions with UHMW

    Seeing if anyone has advice where to add some chines to get this boat to grab in the corners a little better. I cut the middle two strakes off that were about 8 feet long with the plastic install and lapped the plastic over the two strakes that were the full length of the bottom. Adding a...

    Fish lakes

    I am planning on doing a little ice fishing this coming week and was just wondering if anyone has any knowledge of where to fish in this lake system. Is it pretty much constant throughout or is one particular lake better than the others? Any size to the pike in these lakes? thanks

    Chulitna/Tokositna Rivers

    I was just checking to see if anyone had info or experience running up the Chulitna river and then continuing up the Tokositna and how far you can make it? How rocky is the Tokositna? What kind of boat you ran these rivers with? Is it possible to launch a boat in the river at the Chulitna...

    True hp through a jet?

    So outboard motors are advertised to have 30 percent less hp with a jet vs prop and inboards are 10-15 percent, correct me if I'm wrong. My question is why will a 150 hp yamaha with a prop step and haul significantly more weight than a 200hp optimax inboard jet or a 302 in a similar hull. Why...

    Drawing tag question

    I have a question about moose drawing tags coming up. So if you put in for 3 bull tags and one of them is 100 percent draw odds will you ever get one of your first 2 options since your only allowed one tag and you are basically guaranteed the one that is 100 percent odds? Or could you possibly...
