    Brian,
    I have to place the order in the morning.
    1. the sarca Excel and super 9kg will not fit in locker. They would be secured of bow roller.
    2. for the Aluminum EXCEL I don’t have the price but they are much more expensive. Do they fit in the locker I will say yes, but to confirm I will have Micheal contact you as he has one.

    Kelvin,
    I am on a look out for new/leased motor.
    Call all the local wholesalers, and they will tell you who are their big lease dealers (most of them lease to tour or fish camps for 3to6months) they are nicely broken in, mechanically tuned when returns and ready for resale.
    Merucry big dealer is: Bridgeview marine
    2nd MP marine
    Yamaha: Galleon and GA Checkpoint
    Suzuki: Sherwood Marine (victoria) and appearently in Vancouver Bridgeview, also our BWY

    I am looking for a tilt lift assembly for my Honda 50 or if I get a crazy deal I will change.
    I like mercury cause you can get it serviced anywhere.
    Yamaha is a very good quiet, light weight but I am not sure about the servicing on our boat. I will check with Kermi to see if he is still satisfied with his Yamaha.
    Suzuki, a great motor but servicing is an issue.
    I was told that Kijijji is a good site for guys who have bought a new boat and found out that they want a bigger engine, but then you have to pay to have motor removed and reinstalled?

    I was going to write the same thing Rick. if you buy the basic square crab trap add a little lead to the trap doors this will stop the doors to flop open in current and allowing the males to escape. best depth is btwn 30 -50ft at low tide (drop time) pu nets after High tide. Use lead lines. If only on legal male when you haul out, through back in with cage and send her down, and feast on the 2nd haul.
    I have a collapsible pyramid net. has worked well for me. Bad experience with expensive crab nets… they get stolen. But they do store better. It’s a “crab shoot”!

    Some years back I checked with Blue water and North Sails in Richmond. I wanted to have my main checked out and wanted modifications. Time and cost the factors and NS won the tendering. They assessed my sail, and told me I had much life left. They did point out some repairs, and walked me through the modifications. I was satisfied.
