re: Vortex / Vault hubs and tandem trailer with brakes - cheezag03
[quote]They say 6 years, mine lasted 6 years and two months before I blew one out, by then I just bought new axles and replaced everything.[/quote] Did you ever do anything to them in that 6 years? Any warning sign or next you know you were changing the hub on the side of the road? My boat ri...

re: Vortex / Vault hubs and tandem trailer with brakes - cheezag03
Whats the longest you've gone without pumping grease in vortex hubs? I have the non-break version with the screw on cap. It just seems odd not to put in new grease but it does say maintenance free to 100,000 miles. I've pumped new grease a few times, and its always clean good looking grease start...

re: Weekend fishin report - cheezag03
Visited the inlaws and pulled my Uncle J and 25 hp Gator Tail over from Houston. Boat is running good now that Delta figured out I had a machined defect in my carb restricting fuel. I need to put a trolling motor on this boat now that it looks like it'll work out. Thursday evening - Tchefuncte ...

re: What performance should I be getting out of a 35hp GTR gatoetail on an 1854 hull? - cheezag03
[quote]With the 25hp and those mods you should be seeing better rpms and speeds than that. The limiter is set at 4750 rpms so I don’t know why you are getting such low rpms. If that’s the stock prop your performance should be better than that. Are going WOT with about 1/2 to 1/3 of prop still in the...

Uncle J 18x48 open layout mod v pointed bow with a GTR 25 hp XD with Delta mods level 2-3. Upper Texas Coast on the ICW has some places with 25hp restriction so it looks just like a stock 25 with a BPS Q exhuast. I have 10 hours on it all with just me and 50 lbs of gear. This is with the standa...

re: Am I looking at too big of a boat? - cheezag03
thanks to all for the info. I'm not as worried about top-end speed unless what drives that translates to getting in and out of shallow boggy areas. Or i need to look for a 25hp mud motor with high low-end torque...

Am I looking at too big of a boat? - cheezag03
Anybody every run a 25hp surface drive or long tail on a 17x50 .125 flat bottom aluminum? How much better would a surface drive push the boat than a long tail? Here is what I'm trying to do. Looking to sell a 15 yr old 18' CC fiberglass tunnel hull with 150 hp outboard to get aluminum flat ...

re: Mud Boat vs Surface Drive - cheezag03
pardon my ignorance, but I thought you put a surface drive outboard on a mud boat? Anybody ever done interchangeable motors on their duck boat? I'm thinking about getting a gator trax type custom build and putting a jack plate on there with a 40-50 hp tiller water cooled and swapping out with a ...

re: Deer Rib Soup - cheezag03
I've done three ways in order of best to worst: 1. Debone and cut up into about half inch to inch pieces. Add to chili when you put in your chili plate ground meat after cooking down the trinity. I cooked in cast iron dutch oven and let my chili simmer for a good while with the lid on. You ge...

re: 2017-2018 OB Waterfowl Shootout Thread (updated 12/8) - cheezag03
from looking at your other posts I'm guessing Chambers County? Anahuac NWR gave me an asswhooping Saturday when I picked a pond far off the road never having scouted the refuge. Thought it would be a solid ground walk out so I took a big bag of dekes and a bucket and never made it the 700 yds ...
