That's a great deal. I'd snap it up, but I'd have to replace my front t/m also since it's 12V. Someone's going to get a great deal.

To whom ever bought it!!! Fill out and send in the warranty card!!!! If you use this motor at all you will need it. On the second brain board in three years.

You will love the motor however. MinnKota just needs to get ALL the bugs worked out.

Chris,

We have been using a vantage for 4 years until about 3 weeks ago when my dad forgot to hit the up button... To make a long story short, it is in the bottom of a lake due to the mounting bracket busting!!! These motors are in such high demand that you can't find them anywhere!!! That was until I checked FM and Valv had a new one for $200.00 less than anywhere else. cool.gif

They have one on ebay right now and it is a $350 but it says it does not go up and down but motor runs. Would that be the "brain board" and if so how much would it have cost you? Might not be a bad deal if the board isn't too ridiculous.

Don't get me wrong. Just making sure that if you had no such experience with them that you are covered. They are a great motor and Minnkota stands behind them well. Just trying to head off any heartache with the service center if you need service on it.

I heard those motors break off once you hit 35 mph or so..

Eyes', whats up with the way the guy in the back of the boat is holding his rod in your avitar? Is he making sure his guides are straight or really concentrating on looking for a nibble?

Yeah I would say that the 35 mph is about right!!! I'm just glad it wasn't me who did it!!!

The guy in the back was trying to catch a fish... I think he caught 1 fish that day!!! We had to listen to a ton of crying!!! It was the day you and your dad were out there...

eyes - probably more like around 30 mph, since your fancy Ranger isn't even capable of 35!! blush.gif

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
