Splash Guards on Smaller Boats

11 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of putting some Wave Wackers on my 16 foot Alumacraft Lunker, but I'm being advised by the guys from there that you need to put a block on the transom between the outboard & the trolling motor. It has something to do with the lack of space needed for the splash guards when they cut -out for the trolling motor and this apparently makes it stronger (or do-able anyway).

Have any of you guys done this and are you happy with the outcome??

I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to but I have a 16 foot lund rebel with a transom trolling motor (probably similar to your boat)...and I called up White Caps (site sponser) and talked to the guy there who sent me exactly what I needed and I could'nt be happier. They were reasonably priced, on my doorstep within a couple days, and easy to install. They look good and more importantly work good. Easy to take on and off if you want too. I'd suggest giving them a call to get their input.

I guess they aren't a sponsor anymore I can't find them on the sponsor page anymore. But they do have a website and you can pretty much find any info you need there. I had a set of these on my last boat and they work very good.

Well.....after watching this wind day after day, I decided to just drive down to Miltona today (it's raining again anyway so what the heck?) and have the guy at Walleye Masters put on a set. Man..do they look nice!! The ones you made look great too Minneman...just not sure I have the patience or the tools or the know-how to build them to look that good!! grin.gif

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
