Yeah, you may need to install an eye of some sort if you don't have anything to attach the rope to.

Unless the transom is soft for some reason, you shouldn't need to firm it up.

The transom on my Gregor was toast when I bought it. Soft and squishy with dry rot. I made a new transom board and swapped it out.

If your motor is just clamped on, then yes, you'll want to include a safety rope.

General Fishing Tips / Small boat motor questions
« on: Today at 03:48:53 PM »
Pic below shows how I made a secure anchor for my 12 foot Gregor and trailer by digging a hole and casting some galvanized pipe in concrete. Boat is locked to the trailer, boat is locked to the ground, and trailer is locked to the ground. All using THICK (expensive) security chain and (expensive) motorcycle security locks. I also have a hitch lock on there for good measure.

The pipe is filled with concrete so it'll quickly tear up any blade designed to cut metal.

As for the motor, I would avoid bolting it on. It's much less likely to get stolen if it's on an outboard motor stand in your garage...

If you're worried about the clamps scuffing up your boat, get one of these:

Cabezon live in rocky crevasses, and they like to bite squid. Find a spot with rocky crevasses and stick some squid in there.

I've caught a few off the HMB jetty. No need to cast. They're in amongst the rocks right under your feet.

I've ordered a few odds and ends from them, including some stainless steel T-Nuts in an odd size. Good stuff!

I heard Cherry Lake was going to be drained soon to replace a damaged dam valve. Might be worthwhile calling the ranger station to see.
Thanks. Fiancé talked to the ranger this morning, and they didn't mention anything about that so I assume it hasn't happened yet.

This is mostly a weekend to hang out with friends, drink some beers, and stare at a campfire. Fishing is just a bonus, if it happens.

Thanks for the info. (I'll bring my wheels anyway....)

Thanks, Doug. I think it's getting more popular these days... Ranger said we should try to show up on Thursday or early Friday if we want a prime boat in camp spot for the holiday weekend.

Wear some really good running shoes.
Lots of bears last time I was there.
Ha!

Did they hassle you at all?

Did you hang your food from a tree, use a bear canister, or what?

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

What time of year did you fish Eleanor, and what worked best?

Thanks for the link! I think I scanned over that one a while back, but worth reading again.
