Put her in the water today, she rides awsome, a little slower out of the hole than my old boat, but then again, this one is a foot longer and 2 feet wider and I am sure MUCH heavier. I did adjust the pin on the motor to get it to trim under a bit more, so maybe that will help some.

I took her out on the big pond (Superior) in some 3-4 foot waves, rides really nice, no water over the bow. Its really stable when in the trough sideways too! Went back into the harbor and the river. Ran her wide open, I could only get 38mph in the 1-2 foot chop and confused waves in the harbor. Tried a little trolling and she trolls down to just a smidge over 2mph. Gonna try a small lake tomorrow and see how she does.

Wade 38 may be all your going to get out of a 75 horse in those confused waves. I was out yesterday in that mess and all I got was 43 out of my 115. That was 2 of us, all gear and a full tank though.

Nice rig man. Thats a St. Louis River machine. Now you need to fish the Grand Slam next year. wink.gif

Steve, I can always give you a first hand seminar and you now I can help you out, look at the billman family they have been taking notes for the last three years and they have been doing better than us confused.gif. What is up with that confused.gif. I think the teaching is gone to far some learn faster than other's and some pick up way to fast not cost effective if you now what I mean smirk.gif. But I will put one on if you would like and I hope more show up laugh.gif.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
