Splash Guards on Smaller Boats

Question

zelek

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

      watch the video, shows them scaling them...

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
