Re: Okeechobee Fishing

I live right next to Harney pond. If you’re in kicker boat you’ll be churning mud at the mouth cause the lake is so low. It’s anywhere from 12-18 inches deep right now at mouth. If you ain’t in AB go to Okee Tantie

Re: North Korea

The fact remains that he is the FIRST president I've seen in many years who's purpose in everything he does is the betterment of the United States of America and it's tax payers NOT the betterment of his personal political career, his political party, or special interests (donors). That in and of it...

Re: North Korea

Deano - I think you should also consider; What IF Mueller is actually part of the "faithful" drainers of the swamp and is setting not only the media up but ALL of the whicked career politicians (on both sides of the isle) up for the giant fall from grace? Think of this, how often are you hearing the...

Re: Ducknutt Build 500 Caddy

Deano, I really appreciate your inputs and everything you're saying makes perfect sense and I am taking the input/recommendations to heart. My intent is to first mount additional brackets to the front of my rudder supports and test both positions before I remove supports and move entire setup closer...

Re: Ducknutt Build 500 Caddy

No, I'm off tomorrow so I'll get a measurement and some more pictures. By the research I did I could be good further out by my prop and torque range. I'm thinking I'm going to put another mounting bracket in front that would give me 3.5 - 4 inches closer and try both for tuning. If neither works goo...

Re: Ducknutt Build 500 Caddy

Just searched old posts and I see opinions on rudder setback from 5-14 inches and everything in between. There does seem to be concensus that the wider your prop and the higher the torque the further the distance from the prop, but you'll eventually get to the point that you'll be putting undue stre...

Re: Ducknutt Build 500 Caddy

Yeah, with the fab as it is now I can never get that tight. Without being there to measure I believe I'm closer to 16-17 range. I can drop four off that by placing mounting brackets in front of support rather than behind (which is easy). As long as I'm not fighting handling I'm ok, but if it is a pr...

Re: Ducknutt Build 500 Caddy

Thanx for heads up and information. I can place bracket in front of support also which would move me 4 inches closer if I need to. I can also keep both as a means of tuning steering to check both locations. Inside spread of 32 inches between rudders, this is on an 83" prop. Gonna raptor all rigging ...
