Need Help with My Otter Cabin


hooksetter

Question

I have an older Otter Medium Sled with a skin made from Otter/Canvas Craft. I just purchased a new skin for it (Otter Cabin) and just realized that my sled is a bit smaller (62" L vs 64" L and 29" W vs 32" W) than the new Otter Medium sleds. Do I need to break down and buy a new sled as well or is there some wiggle room when putting the skin on the sled?

Thanks for the help!

There was a guy at the Ice Show asking the Otter exec the same question. I heard him say it would not fit. And, on my Lodge and Cottage, there was no wiggle room; especially when you're talking inches.

hooksetter-

There are definitely 2 different style of Otter Tubs on the market. Yours sounds to be on of the older Otter tubs. The new ones which have been around for at least 5 years now have Otter II on the side of them. Unfortunately, the skins don't work on both of them. You might even have to get a new pole assembly as well.

Same situation I had 3 years ago, had to buy the newer sled, which worked out OK because I like the hitch system on the newer sleds anyway. wink.gif

The new style sled has a J shaped outside lip that the extrusion snaps into. If your sled has a staight outside edge, the newer style covers will not work.

I bit the bullet and bought a new sled today. The domino effect continues though - now my seats / brackets do not fit. Oh well. I put the new skin on the new sled tonight and it looks great. Now I'll have to sell the old one as a complete package. Thanks for the input!

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
