  1. Ended up taking my 7 year old grand daughter to Bennett. She cleaned up with her fly rod. Awesome day. Waiting on pics. Thanks for all the replies.
  2. what amazes me is I was down there in my bass boat when they were running all 4 units. The kayakers were everywhere. This was about 5 weeks ago. To me it wouldn't be fun to just zip on down the lake. I'm not sure if they are even aware of generation. You really couldn't run because of other boats drift fishing and the kayakers out in the middle. One girl deliberately got in the way of boat traffic and then flipped boat drivers off. It was nuts. I kinda wanna try it at 35 tomorrow just for the experience.
  3. Thanks for the replies. I didn't realize I had posted twice.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I may just take the boat or yak and be ready for anything. I've been a few times but it's either been shut off or at least a couple of units.
  5. I tried to search to no avail. The chart shows 35 megawatts all day Sat and Sun. Is that to much to wade? The way I understand it that is less than half of one unit.
  6. That comment wasn't directed at just crossflows. My experience with old outboards in general. I'm going thru the fuel system on my '93 50hp now. But the starting and ignition have been perfect. More than I could expect for its age.
  7. I believe that was a crossflow but can't say for sure. You have a very valid point. Reliability really should be above all else for a fishing moter. I've had several of these old omc's that did great for a long time. But when things started going it was one thing after another. The crossflows versus Looper really comes into play on the bassboats. Do the crossflows make their power at lower rpm? Do the loopers make more power but at higher rpm and does that help top end? Does it matter to anyone but hot Rodders and tournament fisherman?
  8. I believe loopers are much better engines than crossflows.
  9. Thanks for the advice. Tilt and trim work better than ever now. Can't wait to get out!
  10. Outboard HP is rated at the propshaft +/- 10%. So why do you need to compare kilowatts? More cubic inches generally means more torque to get moving. A lower pitch prop accomplishes the same. Just curious what you are after?
  11. Just to jump on the bandwagon..Ive had trouble with my last 2 Orvis. The 300.00 pair leaked bad after about 6 months. I had to send them back and for 40.00 they fixed them and have held up for a couple of years. I bought a cheaper pair to use and they leaked right out of the box! Encounters I think. I always carry a spare. Haven't bought any in a couple of years now.
  12. I've read and heard some good ones! A local tv station posted a pic of arrowhead stadium to prove it was empty. The rumor was the national guard had taken it over. Several stories about military command posts being set up in nieborhoods around KC.
  13. Only Meramec springs has closed partially. They are privately run. Edit: I just saw they completely closed.
  14. When I joined this site I had just gotten back from a vacation in the Caribbean. The second in a few years. So I was feeling all island-y. It feels like a long time ago now but I haven't seen fit to change it. What's an avatar?
