#2449 1448 Pontoon Style Build

Posted by JDawgBailz on 29 April 2013 - 01:20 AM

Ok so this week I will be starting my 1448 Pontoon Style Build. However instead of using regular pontoons I am going to make them out of 55 gallon plastic barrels. It is going to be a boat for the lake that is about half hour away from my house. I will be building the frame and floor out of pressure treated wood. The barrels will be ratchet straped to the underneath of the platform and it will basically be a floating barge. The lake is electric motors only so I will be running a trolling motor on it. I might put my 9.6 seaking on it and take it to the river sometimes but it will mostly be for the lake. I priced it out and the barrels should run me about $125. And the floor and frame should run me about $100 or so. I was in a pretty bad accident about 2 weeks ago so I want something that will be more stable than my little 1432 flatbottom. I might run halogen lights with my honda eu2000 on it or run the LED's off of my other boat. Not sure yet but this is going to be a quick build because there is a tournament I want to shoot in the middle of May. Has anyone else tried this or though about it? any suggestions or ideas?

#89 What is your favorite type of Bow?

Posted by Msboy on 14 January 2013 - 02:29 PM

Yeah they ate both good bows I'm just trying to decide on a new one. I shoot my buddies osprey and really like the fill of the bow a the smooth draw and release it's just the price of a new one that's pushing me away from it. I really can't see putting that much money into a bow that is going to be used and abused the way a bowfishing bow is.

If you have a battery distributer near you like Interstate go there. I go to the Interstate battery warehouse by my house to get all my batteries. I ask them for blemishes. Usually they have them and all they are are batteries with cosmetic damage. (no handle, deformed molding, minor dent, ect.) I got 2 marine deep cycles for my boat that are regular $120 a piece for $110 total.

#372 LED Power source

Posted by NightKnight on 18 February 2013 - 06:29 AM

Just want to throw something in here. I am a LED flashlight nerd. I know that batteries for high power LED flashlights generally show their capacity at different draw rates (amps). Many batteries, most notably lead acid and alkaline, have lower capacities when you have higher draw rates. So, it's entirely possible that, depending on the battery used (and assuming that a 24v system will draw less current, a dual battery 24v system could outlast a dual battery 12v system. If you are using really high end car batteries like Optima, Stinger, or Diehard Platinum, the advantage may very well go away.

It's also worth saying that deep cycle marine batteries are specifically designed to run an low current for long durations. That's both an advantage and disadvantage for them. They don't deal well with high current. On the other hand, Cranking Amp batteries will deal well with higher current applications and will probably actually last longer even though their Ah rating is lower.

#1187 How's your season going

Posted by BigSwole on 12 March 2013 - 05:16 PM

Um. I would say pretty good.

Have gone twice to shoot and twice to put boat in water and test new gear. The test trips werent fishing trips so dont count them.

Both times we went out for less than 3 hours.

First night. Nearly 3 hours when troller died.

Second trip was just taking my stepdad out for his first time. I shot back up shots and runners amd gave him first shot. If there were multiples i gave him a chance to shoot before i stuck one.

He decided filling the barrell was enough for him. He didnt see the point to stay out after the barrel was full so we headed in.

2 - 2.5 hours

So i would say its rocking and rolling this year


#115 What is your favorite ride?

Posted by NuffDaddy on 31 January 2013 - 04:50 AM

What I would prefer would be a 20' airboat surrounded by 400 watt HPS. But that is a little out of my price range. I used a 1442 jon with 4 500 watt halos for the last 3 years. Got a 1648 to settup for next season and getting some 150 HPS to light it up.
