Portable house marking??

Question

nauticaljohn

What do you guys use to mark your portables? I have a black Polar Sled. I have been trying to find a broad point white magic marker.

One option is to cut a stencil and spray paint it on.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Surface Tension

Stencil would work but if you sold the house the buyer might not like so much.

You could get some self stick velcro and put 1" squares in four corners. Stick it on and then make a sign out of white or yellow fabric and do the same. Make two signs while your at it. Leave one black if and sell it with the house.

Or skip the Velcro and use safety pins on the corners.

What surface said is great!

If you are in a pinch and have to get out, cut out legal sized strip of cardboard out of a pop or beer case. Mark you lic. number with marker on that (cradboard size), or DNR # and safety pin that right on Porty.

The law says nothing about look-in pretty cool.gif

I just printed mine out from word. Use a real big font and have it spreed over a few pages. Tape them together and then I used shipping tape to laminate the front and back. Works pretty good. I also have a sleeve on the back of my house (you can get them at Fleet Farm) that it slides into.

I do kind of a combo of stuff here - My Eskimo Quickflip II has a clear sleeve on the front, so I cut cardboard to fit in it, then printed out my DNR numbers on a laser printer in big font, then used packing tape to completely seal that printout to the cardboard. It also has room for taping on a shelter license.... which I won't need anymore. smile.gif

What has worked great for me is "white-out"....typically used in offices to "erase" print. It has a ball point tip and dries very quickly. You should be able to find at places like Office Max., Target, etc.

Otherwise there are also "paint pens" (many colors) used in crafts, etc. I have not personally used such, but have to think that would fit the application.

Best of luck.

My Otter Lodge has a piece of clear plastic with 2" reflective numbers on it that fits inside the sleeve on the outside, and my Frabill 1 man has a piece of cardboard that I drew the letters on in marker and then covered it with packing tape to seal it. That one also fits in the sleeve provided on the outside.

Do the numbers need to be at any certin height? I know they need to be 2 inches tall but could I put the peel and stick numbers on my voyager sled? or does it need to be eye level or something?

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
