If you had mentioned the Illusion (or any other backwards thing) I would have to agree. As far a "true" Titan tower, I strongly disagree.

fredrik, i was driving on 301 a couple of weeks ago and saw a ramp in the water in one of the coves down there. have you seen it? who owns it and can anyone use it?

Buckey, 301 is a pretty long road... where more specifically? Although I don't know of any ramps off it, so I am afraid I wouldn't know if they are public.

What is the coiled up hose on the back for?
Old    Razzman (razz)      Join Date: May 2002       02-25-2003, 1:02 PM Reply   

It's a binding soap sprayer. I bought a $10 bug sprayer and added some tygon tubing. I also modified the spray nozzle so it was not too long. Mounted the spray bottle in the rear locker stowage area. Mounted some clips and a nylon strap with a snap on the transom. This seemed like a tidy way to stow the nozzle and tygon tube. I wanted the extra length so when someone is doing a dockstart they can lube up their bindings from the dock. We have put 250 hours on our boat in 6 months and I've only had to refill the spray bottle a couple of times. Very handy once it is in.

Please excuse my limited knowledge of bug sprayers, but is it electrical, or do you manually pump to build up pressure? If so how often does it need to be re-pressurized?

Really neat idea. And _a lot_ cheaper than the one offered by MC as a factory option...
Old    Razzman (razz)      Join Date: May 2002       02-27-2003, 10:15 AM Reply   
It is a one gallon bug sprayer that you have to manually pump. Borrowing from a post on WW last summer I cut a small hole in the bug sprayer resevoir and added a schraeder valve so when I stop at the gas station I can pressure up the bug sprayer. Without the schraeder valve it probably needs to be pumped up every few trips out or so. I made mine fairly excessible so manually pressurizing it or refilling the resevior is no big deal. Hope this helps.

What do you use for lube in the sprayer? Great idea....

I use a dish soap and water mix. Unfortunately I don't know the exact ratio that works best. Too little soap and it doesn't do much good. Too much soap and it gums up my sprayer. Not very scientific but I usually add soap then add water. Check the sprayer output. Then I add soap or water depending on what is needed til I get it right. It's quite the iterative process. I suppose it shouldn't be that hard. Oh well.

By the way my wife and I spent a little over a week in the South Island snowboarding in '98. We hit Coronet (Concrete) Peak, Treble Cone, and Mt. Hutt. New Zealand is an awesome place!

I'd post mine but my platform looks lame. I bought teak cleaner from Star Brite and then oiled it and it just looks like a clean gray platform. Do I need to use their Brightner too or what??
Old    Phaeton (phaeton)      Join Date: Feb 2002       02-28-2003, 8:30 AM Reply   
You can use the brightner. But I think you need to sand it to get it back to looking good.

That picture is actually at my buddy's house, he puts a '90 MC 190 on that lift. It works good for his, but would be too narrow for anything else. We use a Shorestation lift at my in-laws on the same lake for the 205. Shorestation makes a great lift, and the electronic motor for the crank wheel is a wise investment. I'll post a pic of the set up at the in-laws, feel free to fire away with any specific questions.

Nice boats guys!

Old    dukekati            02-28-2003, 12:30 PM Reply   
Thanx NAW that's a really nice set up you have. I bot a Naylor cantilevered lift - manual(I may add a motor later - too much cash to lay out all at once). Is there a concern about corrosion of the motor being exposed and all? Also do you have to take the lift out at the end of the season, if so how difficult is that thanks again, dave
Old    NAW (ripr)      Join Date: Mar 2002       02-28-2003, 12:42 PM Reply   
The motor on the Shorestation lifts are easily removeable. We take it off at the end of the season. It comes with a little canvas cover for the motor for rain and the elements. No, the lift doesn't come out for the winter, we just raise the bunks above water level, take the motor off and it's good to go. You shouldn't have a problem but check with the Naylor just to be sure. Good luck!

DJL, I lived in Lake Orion, MI for 5 1/2 years before moving back to KY. I ordered my boat right before I moved back in Oct '99 and drove up to pick it up in May '00. I wish there was a dealer like Silver Spray down here!

Transom guard is not for sale. I won't make another one. Sorry. It took about 4 hours, and the teak was about $50. The logo is burned into the wood, and it was pretty difficult, so, I won't do another one.
