    2015 Starcraft Fishmaster 196

    January 16, 2020


    Looking for a serious fishing boat that you
    can easily trailer? Look no further than Starcraft’s Fishmaster 196. The aluminum hull keeps it
    light just 1400 pounds, but it’s also tough as nails, and the company stands behind that
    too, with a limited lifetime warranty on the hull and structure and a six year warranty
    on all components, upholstery and electronics, so your only worry should be where the fish
    are, and in that regard you shouldn’t worry too much. With a max rating of 200 horsepower
    you can get to where you’re going in a real hurry. As tested, with a Mercury Verado Pro
    200, we ripped across the lake at a top speed just a hair under 50 miles per hour and comfortably
    cruised at a peppy 47.5 miles per hour at 4300 rpm. The hull design with a high free
    board and full beam windshield will keep you protected and dry as you race to your favourite
    fishing spot. And you’ll have a blast while getting there, always a nice bonus. You’ll
    get there dry but also in comfort, the fold down seats that can be moved around the boat
    and up to the casting platform are solid and sturdy but soft enough to enjoy the ride.
    At the rear the transom jump seats that pop out to open the deck up for casting and netting
    are comfortable enough and serve the purpose of extra seating well. The bow casting platform
    is raised and roomy, in the floor you’ll find storage and a massive 41 gallon live well.
    At the very tip of the bow is a lockable storage compartment. Moving back through the walk
    through split windshield, there’s lots of open space back here, especially if you take
    off the bimini top. Large storage compartments in floor and in the transom offer plenty of
    room for life jackets, fishing gear, or even a small cooler. Along the port and starboard
    sides is long rod storage so everything can be tucked away when you’re running. The helm
    is sleek and well laid out. Gauges, switches, and stereo controls all within easy reach.
    With the Starcraft Fishmaster 196, you’ve got a tournament quality fishing boat in an
    accessible and fun package.

    FISH STOPS BITING?! Our go-to TRICK before changing bait/location. Work for salt water | fresh water

    January 15, 2020


    It’s the 3rd day after a cold front. Let’s see what fish will bite. Anchovy got us the first mackerel, indicating active fish. A calico bass followed, still on anchovy. The shrimp bait got us the first wrasse. then a surprising California sheephead This fish tastes good, but be careful with its sharp teeth. The bites continued for a while, then suddenly stopped Before changing location, we tried to slightly shake the rod tip like this and it worked! The perch also tastes very good, we let it go as we’ve already got sheephead This is my worst release of the day and we missed the bite from a duck:) The same trick works for other species as well let’s take a closer look I hope I was able to share with you the
    joy of fishing! See you next time

    Hell bound up the Congo River on a shanty boat

    January 15, 2020


    The ‘Gbemani’ and a captain are fighting against the strong current. After a week, they’ve made only three hundred and ten miles. The journey is turning into a long, tedious nightmare. But the delays create good business for Marie, an unemployed nurse,. A combination of the weather, worsening sanitary conditions are starting to make people ill. There’s no doctor, and no sick bay on board. So the captain appoints her the ship’s doctor. – I am a passenger like any other person, but I studied nursing With her limited medical knowledge, Marie tours the ship looking for the sick. Most on board, have never seen let alone been treated by a doctor. The voyage is particularly hard on the children, especially when the poorest parents give them river water to drink. Every day, river traders climb on to sell supplies. On today’s menu are garden vegetables, forest fruits and fresh fish. But there is rarely enough for everyone. – He’s vomiting, and we have cases of typhoid … The noise I know how to differentiate it. There is rage, you felt it as if you were typing: Boom boom.. – I have to do this to avoid air bubbles.
    We look at the feet if we can prick there. It’s like war medicine, because the conditions so are terrible. Nine days on the river and they are six days behind schedule. So late that those who are sick may not be able to wait for proper medical treatment at the final destination.

    How To Park Your Boat In The Garage With Power-Poles On | Bass Fishing

    January 14, 2020


    Hey folks. Glenn May here with BassResource.com.
    A common question I hear about Power-Poles is, “How am I going to get in my garage when
    the Power-Poles are higher than the height of the garage door?” Well, it’s actually pretty straightforward.
    Fortunately, Power-Pole gives you a little remote control. All we do, is we just bring
    it down, just below the height of the engine. Then you can back in, and once you get past
    the garage door, you’ll see that it’s folded up all the way. When you get past that, then
    you just want to bring it back up again. And there you have it. It’s really simple, really
    easy, and with this remote from Power-Pole, you can do it all by yourself and it only
    takes a couple of minutes. For more tips and tricks like this, visit BassResource.com.

    How To Save Your Trailer Bunks | Power Loading A Boat

    January 14, 2020


    Hey, folks. Glenn May here with BassResource.com
    and let me show you a quick way how to save the bunks on your trailer and make it a lot
    quicker and easier for you get the boat onto your trailer. It’s real simple; when you back
    the trailer down the ramp, most people stop where the water is just underneath the fenders
    a little bit. Don’t do that. Dump the whole bunks all the
    way into the water and then pull the trailer back out to the setting that you want it to
    be at. When you do that, the bunks are nice and wet. The boat will go on really easy that
    way. There won’t be any resistance. You won’t have to use as much power when you power load
    it. There won’t be any friction on your bunkers, so you’ll save those, and you’ll get on a
    lot faster and easier that way. It’s a quick and easy thing to do, but it’ll
    save the bunks on your trailer and it’ll make it a lot easier to get your boat onto the
    trailer. For more tips and tricks like this, visit BassResource.com.

    Outboard Engine Maintainence Tricks You Need To Know

    January 14, 2020


    Hi, this is David Meeler with Yamaha Marine,
    and I’m here to give you just a tip or two about how to maintain your engine and keep
    it in tip top shape every day before you get ready to go out for a ride. One thing you want to check when you’re getting
    ready to head out is the condition of your batteries. But, what you don’t want to do
    is start your engine dry. Make sure to have some water on the engine. Either dip it in
    the water with your trailer and then turn it over, or check it at home with a flush
    muff before you go. Make sure the connections are clean and tight and that you’re using
    nyloc nuts, not the old fashioned wing nuts. The second thing you want to do at all times
    is take care of your fuel. Fuel breaks down in a matter of days instead of months like
    it used to. One of the things you’ll need is a ten micron filter to filter out impurities
    and to capture any water that you’re going to get through ethanol gas. Stabilize your
    fuel. Make sure to use a good marine formula at all times. Don’t only do it when you think
    you’re going to put the boat up for a while. Get in the habit of using it every time. Fuel
    and electricity are two of the most important things you can do to maintain your engine
    every day.

    10 Camper Boats From Retro to Modern | Camper Boat Hybrid Favorites

    January 13, 2020


    – [Reacher] Camping on the water? Sure, why not? Somebody thought of it, so it
    must be worth trying, right? This is Reacher and
    here are 10 camper boats from the early days up until now. (upbeat music) – [Countdown] Number 10. – [Reacher] In the 60s and 70s experimentation was everywhere. During that era, a company named Sea Camper Industries out
    of Jacksonville, Florida decided to build a
    camper-houseboat combination and try their hand in this niche market. The Sea Camper packed all
    of the features you’d expect from a modern camper boat in a
    space measuring 24 feet long, or 7.3 meters, with a beam
    of 8 feet or 2.4 meters. The cockpit is located in
    the front starboard area, while across from that is bench seating, which can double as a sleeping
    area for a single person. Behind the cockpit is a kitchen area that includes a double-sided
    stainless steel sink, a triple-burner cook
    top and oven, as well as a mini fridge under one
    of the rear dinette seats. There’s also a fully enclosed wet bath with a removable wall-mounted shower head. To the rear of that is a
    full sized dinette area which also converts to a
    sleeping area for two, if needed, while doors both for and
    aft open up to small decks. The original company was eventually sold and went under in the mid 70s. Fortunately, a second generation revival of the Sea Camper was brought
    about in the early 2000s by a German manufacturer. Original pricing on this one would have run you around $11,000. – [Countdown] Number nine. – This largest of the
    Boat-a-Home fleet comes in with a length just under
    26 feet or 7.9 meters, and a width of almost
    eight feet, or 2.4 meters. Doors at both the front and rear open to reveal a living area capable
    of seating up to six people. Forward on the starboard
    side is the helm of the boat. Behind this is a dinette area with seating for up to 3 people. Opposite this, on the port
    side, is the a galley, which includes a triple-burner
    cooktop and stove, a sink and a 118 liter fridge-freezer. Moving towards the rear,
    you’ll find a wet bath with a swiveling cassette
    toilet and stand up shower. The rear houses a bench, which
    converts to a double bed. This, along with the dinette area, which converts to a bunk bed if needed, provides sleeping accommodations
    for up to four people. Go power is provide by a 40
    horsepower outboard engine, while the electric is covered
    by two 150 watt solar panels mounted on the roof. This one starts out with the base price of just over $100,000. – [Countdown] Number eight. – [Reacher] This one
    is called the CaraBoat and sometimes that
    simple, yet catchy name, is all that’s needed in a title. A rear door opens up off of a
    small deck into a lounge area with seating for six to seven people. In front of that is the galley, which has a double-well sink,
    a mini fridge with a freezer, a triple-burner cooktop with
    a glass cover and an oven. Opposite that you’ll
    find an enclosed wet bath with a swiveling cassette toilet and a sink with a removable faucet that doubles as a handheld shower head. Housed in the front is another lounge area with bench seating. Both lounge areas convert to beds that can sleep up to
    four people if needed. Controls for the steering and engine are located on a wall-mounted
    arm that folds down underneath the cabinet when not in use. Pricing on the the standard
    model is a bit over $100,000. – [Countdown] Number seven. – [Reacher] This entry from
    Japanese based Car-taka is another example of how to make a small space feel bigger
    than it actually is. It measures in at 12.5 feet
    or 3.8 meters in length, with a width just over
    five feet or 1.6 meters. Large hatches at the front
    and rear provide entry to an open design that
    includes a small sink, a water tank and a mini fridge. There’s also a dinette
    area with bench seating that converts to a sleeping
    area for up to three people. This one is very similar to a model by German company Sealander. Minor differences aside, they
    could very well have been cast from the same mold. I’m kind of curious which one came first, so if anyone can shed some light on that, feel free to let me know in the comments. Pricing on this one will
    run you around $21,000. – [Countdown] Number six. – [Reacher] This awesome
    looking piece of machinery was produced by the
    Ship-a-Shore Corporation from the late 60s to the early 70s. Two pieces of thermaplastic form the body which measures 23 feet,
    or seven meters long. A sliding patio door off of the
    rear deck opens to the cabin with a kitchen containing a
    three-burner cooktop and oven, a large double-well sink and
    a 128 liter fridge-freezer. Two dinette areas, one
    on each side of the boat, can accommodate up to six people. At the front starboard side is the helm, with large windows all around, providing an almost uninterrupted view. Across from that is a lounge
    area with bench seating that converts to an additional
    sleeping area if needed. The roof can double as a extra area for sunbathing or relaxing
    with access via ladder and hatch at the rear. And for those of you who
    consider hygiene important, there’s an onboard bathroom
    with a toilet, sink, and shower. The Combo Cruiser had a base
    price that ran around $11,000. – [Countdown] Number five. – [Reacher] This one,
    like entry number eight, is also called the CaraBoat. Produced in the early 70s, it’s rumored that only
    64 of these were made due to the manufacturer
    destroying the molds after a failed PR launch. What few details I could find
    show a rear entrance door that opens to a lounge
    area with bench seating and a small bathroom opposite that. Moving forward, there’s a kitchen area with a triple-burner cooktop and oven, a full-size sink and dinette seating with a removable floor-mounted table. The helm is located at the front port side with the door opening
    to a small forward deck. The two lounge areas could
    convert to sleeping quarters for up to four people if needed. All of this was housed
    in a cabin measuring 16 feet, or 4.9 meters in length and just under seven
    feet, or 2.1 meters wide. – [Countdown] Number four. – [Reacher] This water ready
    anytime amphibious trailer is perfectly sized for
    smaller vehicles to tow, weighing in a little over
    1600 pounds or 740 kilograms. It measures 15 feet by 7 feet,
    or 4.6 meters by 2.2 meters, with room for up to four passengers. In addition to the large front
    hatch and rear sliding doors, a pop-up roof provides natural ventilation as well as extra head room. The living area includes an
    integrated single-burner cooktop and sink, along with
    bench seating on each side and a removable table that
    allows it to be converted to a sleeping area. A small platform on the front
    can be used for lounging, while the rear tailgate
    opens to create a deck area with seating on each side and a mount for a small outboard motor. An optional solar panel
    can be added to the roof to provide extra power to the
    100 amp battery if needed. Pricing on this one is
    currently around $17,500. – [Countdown] Number three. – [Reacher] This Italian-made mini yacht seems like it shouldn’t be on this list, as it’s design is mostly
    made for transport. But the multiple configurations
    allow for it to be set up as a vessel that has
    amenities like a camper boat, so we figured it deserved a spot. It measures 24 feet, or
    7.2 meters in length, with a width of 12 feet, or 3.5 meters. The large rear doors slide
    open to reveal a living space, housing a bathroom with a toilet and sink, with a small kitchenette opposite that, which includes a four-burner
    cooktop, sink and prep area. Moving forward is bench
    seating on each side which can be modified into single beds. The front of the boat
    houses the enclosed helm. Large panoramic windows allow for an almost unobstructed
    view throughout the boat. The rear sun deck provides
    space for relaxation while also covering the single 370 horsepower water-jet engine which can reach a top speed of 43 miles or 69 kilometers per hour. Current pricing for this
    one is around $150,000. – [Countdown] Number two. – [Reacher] Built in 1979,
    this beast of a vehicle is considered the world’s
    first amphibious SUV. And unlike the other entries in this list, this one can be driven
    on both land and water. It tops out at just over
    seven feet or 2.1 meters tall with a dry weight at 5,100
    pounds or 2,340 kilograms. No special setup is needed
    to go from land to water as it can be driven down
    any standard launch ramp. The five seater is based
    around the European version or the Ford Granata and came
    with the option of either a hard or soft top. The 135 horsepower engine
    allowed the behemoth to reach land speeds up to 87 miles or 140 kilometers per hour. Unfortunately, this one never made it past the prototype stage
    and only made an appearance at the 1979 Frankfurt Motor Show. So what do you think? Could you see yourself
    sleeping on the water in one of these? Let us know in the comments
    which one you liked the most or if you have a favorite
    that didn’t make the list. – [Countdown] Number one. – [Reacher] This one
    from English manufacturer Cara Cruiser came about in the late 70s. The vessel measures 15.5
    feet, or 4.7 meters in length, with a beam of just under
    seven feet or 2.1 meters. A small deck at the stern
    has seats on each side of a folding door that
    open into the cabin area. Inside is an enclosed wet
    bath with a toilet, sink, and handheld shower head. Moving forward is the kitchenette, which has a dual-burner
    cooktop and convection oven along with a large sink and counter space. Bench seating and a
    removable floor-mounted table are opposite this. The front has a lounge
    area with C shaped seating which also includes the
    helm on the port side. Large side and front
    windows provide an almost panoramic view of the surroundings. It has a dry weight of 11,000
    pounds or 500 kilograms and can be powered by a
    stern-mounted outboard engine ranging from 7.5 to 35 horsepower. – Hey guys, this is Cassie. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. Tell us in the comments

    How to Clean the Bottom of a Sailboat Underwater! (Tips from the Pros #4 /Patrick Childress #55)

    January 13, 2020


    your boat doesn’t have to come out of
    the water looking like this on sailboat ‘Brick House’ we’ll show you how we clean
    our bottom and then we’ll go to Hank Schmitt from Offshore Passage Opportunities to give his tips from the pros number four how to keep your bottom
    clean. Hello I’m Patrick Childress in over twelve years of living on our
    sailboat Brick house Rebecca and I have never found a bottom paint that does
    what it’s supposed to do what the advertising says that it will do
    we’ve always ended up having to scrub the bottom much sooner than ever expected so we
    normally use a hookah and up here we’ll put a link to video number 12 which
    shows how we use the hookah for scrubbing the bottom especially after
    we’ve been sitting for several months in one harbor and the marine growth really
    does accumulate and at the end of this video will show you some underwater
    scenes from that video but Hank Schmitt from offshore passage opportunities has
    a very good system for using a scuba tank which you don’t have to strap to
    your back and be so encumbered under the water so he’s going to show us how to
    start with scrubbing the waterline and then go deeper using the scuba tank and
    not wear it into the water okay so we’re getting set up to go ahead and clean the
    bottom of the boat I’ve been cleaning bottoms for about the last 25 or 30 years
    and at first we’d set up like most divers with a BC jacket and and
    regulator and all the weight belts and everything but I found it was much
    easier just to have a tank and a long 25-30 foot hose which I’ll set up right
    here in the middle of the boat and if you have a dinghy you could also put it
    in your dinghy but this keeps you from having to get a BC jacket and the weight
    belt when it’s time to clean your bottom and you’ll see how we can actually clean
    most of the bottom and we’ll demonstrate that in a little bit just by
    having the tank set up in the middle of the boat. we open it up so it’s
    ready for us we all the way open and back a little bit and I’ll just leave it
    right here in the middle I’ll go ahead and get set up to enter the water and as
    you’ll see I can clean most of the boat without having to use the tank and I
    just have that ready for me when I need it so I’ll go in the water and it’s all
    set to go when I need that for cleaning the prop for the bottom of the keel
    maybe the bottom of the rudder we’re gonna go ahead and get in the water now
    and we’ll show you how you can clean your boat pretty much about as big as
    forty forty five feet without using a tank if you didn’t have a tank if you
    weren’t certified but of course having a tank makes it certainly easier for
    cleaning off your prop or the bottom of your keel but really to clean the bottom of your boat
    the water isn’t that cold you don’t need a wetsuit or anything you just need a
    few things so we’re gonna go in with our swim fins
    a scraper of course for getting any barnacles or anything if you have
    barnacles on the bottom of your boat or anything then you really should you just
    be hauling the boat out and painting it a diver is not to keep from having to
    paint your boat once a year or once every two years for scrubbies they’re
    actually three different grades of scrubby’s one is like a sponge almost
    and that’s when you’re racing or you keep it clean a lot then the red want a
    little bit more abrasive and then you might be familiar with the black ones
    which are really for cleaning your barbeque grill and if you have to use a
    black one again I would usually just tell the owner of the boat save the
    money that I would charge you for diving and putting it towards a short haul so
    you shouldn’t have to be taking barnacles off the bottom of your boat if
    you have barnacles on the bottom you vote you need to paint but I know our
    bottom is not that bad so I’ll be able to use the lightest grade scrubby you
    can you don’t want to use anything more abrasive because then you’re taking the
    bottom paint off and again bottom paint as you know is very expensive 250 to 400
    dollars a gallon so the idea isn’t to put it on and then scrape it all off so
    again you want to use the the lightest scrub you can also very important are
    the suction cups because again imagine you’re in the water and as you’re
    cleaning the boat you’re pushing yourself away so they sell these at your
    marine supply stores also any glazier windows they also have suction cups for
    moving big pieces of glass so you want suction cups I put a line on there so I
    don’t lose that and then I’ll just have the scrubby on the other side I do use
    gloves again for barnacles you don’t want to scrape your hands if it’s really
    cold water you’d want to use a wetsuit but it’s not too cold today so just swim
    fins again if you want you can use booties my booties are more worn out
    than my gloves so I don’t use booties anymore and up here where the water’s
    dirtier I do like to put on a hoodie as well with a mask just any any mask I
    don’t use the snorkel at all because again I’m gonna be holding my breath
    cleaning the bottom of the boat and coming back up and you’ll see that
    demonstration in a little bit so again you don’t need a lot of a lot of tooling
    a minute ago you saw we set up our tank so we don’t have to worry about a BC a
    buoyancy control jacket or a weight belt even you’ll have enough with the suction
    cups to be able to take care of that so you’ll eliminate a lot of gear a lot of
    maintenance without the BC jacket so just a tank, a tank and long hose in the middle of
    the boat or you keep it your dinghy in the middle of the boat and I’ll just
    need that really for cleaning anything off the prop or the bottom of the keel
    so with that we’ll get suited up and see you in the water
    okay so I’m all suited up with my stickems – my suction cups…and hopefully I’ll get
    away with just my sponge type and I leave my other scrubby and my my putty
    knife near me so I could reach it when I’m in the water so just go in make sure
    you hold your mask okay we are in the water I generally
    like to start at the bow you see just okay so you could see the contrast where
    it was already cleaned and where it’s not and basically it’s my suction cups
    in one hand and I’m right-handed so I have this scrubby in the other and I’m
    just doing wipe wipe I hold my breath as I go down get to the middle of the
    bottom of the boat then work my way up the other side and I just continue that
    and that way I can do probably 90% of the boat without the having to use the
    tank or the regulator so it saves you from using a lot of air so when I was
    commercial diving I could do eight or ten bottoms with one tank so I wouldn’t have
    to make as many runs to do it and again if you’re out cruising around you don’t
    have to go and get your bottle filled as often. They do sell smaller pony bottles
    which you could probably do the whole boat bottom with just a small five or
    ten-minute pony bottle because again you only need it for your keel and for
    your your running gear your prop and your shaft if you have any barnacles
    there so it’s really just hold my breath wipe wipe….. and i come up again…work on down, more wipe wipe I don’t even have to hold my breath on
    the top. And I head back down. And i just keep going, all the way around. Probably once every 2 month if you’re not racing if you are racing then you
    might want to do it before each race. Very simple.
    okay so I’ve cleaned 80% – 90% of the bottom I have my regulator set up
    25-foot hose connected to the tank on deck. It could be on your Dinghy I just pull the
    hose down now because I’m ready to clean the bottom of the keel then I’ll get the
    putty knife and I’ll go ahead and clean the the strut, the prop, and the
    shaft and then we’re all done so I only need this for the last part of the last
    part of the cleaning the bottom. Thank You Hank I hope this video was
    worthwhile for you if it was please give it a thumbs up and also click on the
    subscribe button if you haven’t already also there is a link to the tip jar in
    the video description if you don’t mind helping out in that
    direction now here’s some of those scenes from when we were anchored for
    three months in Sri Lanka (cleaning the hull, cleaning the chain, cleaning the prop on the bottom of our sailboat Brick House) Propspeed from Oceanmax worked great for 2 years, so it made cleaning our bottom a lot easier than before. After 2 years, we are applying it again (hauled out now for Coppercoat, Propspeed and more)
