  1. Bought a new, to me, boat last April. Had to overhaul the motor 88hp, if I knew it had a bad cylinder I wouldn't have bought it. I haven't been able to enjoy it since then because I'm still battling a running issue that is getting progressively worse. Was getting worse. Found problem yesterday, and thought I would let you all know. Avoid these carburetor gasket sets with the orange rubber gaskets. Wow I thought I was doing great buying something that had a made in the USA flag with the advertisement. The rubber float bowl gasket swelled and started pushing on my carb float.
  2. I'll 2nd what troutgirl said about Wilbur. Nice place to sit and relax. Sycamore Shoals is good place with easy access to river. My Dad, my daughter and I were sitting down there fishing one day. Wilbur was releasing water, so it was up and flowing. This was when a person could drive through the field and the road would hook left to the river where a person could park down there, I don't think you are allowed to drive down there anymore. My daughter was fishing with redworms, and she landed a nice 18inch brown trout. I got the hook out and was handing it to her for a picture, tail first for some reason, and it slapped her cheek with its tail. I thought Dad was going to bust a gut he was laughing so hard. Or head down stream below the shoal where they crossed for their mustering during the revolutionary war. Thow some small cranks and rooster tails. Wife and I were down there a couple of weeks ago. Easy access and nice trail for some exercise. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  3. I used to go to Sycamore Shoals in Elizabethtown. Park in their parking lot and take off down the walking trail toward the river. If you are going to be wading in, best to have felt soles on your boots. Those pretty round rocks are very slippery. Caught a lot of nice trout there, years ago. You can even go up stream right below Wilbur dam. Always call for generation schedule 1-800-238-2264. Welcome to East Tennessee and welcome aboard ExSoldier62 Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. That's a good looking boat. I don't know much about mariner outboard. I've got a 78 Norris Craft, that thing is 40 years old, still runs good and dependable. And the best thing about an older boat is, you don't have a huge monthly payment chewing on your back side. I would definitely get the old gas out of there. I've heard when the color in the gel coat fades out, you'll never be able to shine her up. But please keep us posted I am curious. Get out and fish. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
