Lyal has his Lund 2075 Pro V Bass ready for action. The only thing left is to mount the graphs when they show up. 12' Talons on the back installed with tilt brackets. 10" Atlas heavy duty jackplate. Hydrowave H2 on the bow. We just mounted Bass Boat Technologies plates on our console and bow to hold our Solix 15's. Our lakes have water around the edges and a warm forecast for the next 12 days!
Started yesterdays rigging by making a custom engine lift plate. Took a flat plate with rings already attached and rated for 1000 lbs. I made a 4.5" circle and split it into 3. After drilling out the holes I used grade 8.8 10mm bolts to secure the plate to the flywheel. My Dad brought his tractor with a bucket and some chain. We carefully put tension on the engine and took the 4 bolts out. After cleaning the silicone that was still pretty fresh from the initial engine install at the factory just weeks ago, we put new silicone circles around the bolt holes and mounted the Atlas 10" heavy duty jack plate. Once that was tight we put the motor back in place and finished mounting it back to the jack plate. After this was done I tucked it back in the garage and was ready to tackle some other items.
I started the install of Talon brackets. Once these were on I put both 12' Talons in their place. I then ran the wire and finished the install. After syncing the controllers this part was finished. Now I ran the jackplate gauge wires and up and down wires to the console. I hooked these up to the dual trim lever on the steering wheel and the gauge in the dash. Everything went smooth and is operational. The last few items I worked on were the hydrowave, G-Force handle and G-Force Eliminator prop nut. Right now everything is ready and waiting the arrival of the Solix 15's.
I have a great start on getting the boat rigged for the 2017 season. The Minn-Kota Ultrex is on and ready to do work! The batteries and onboard charger are all in place and ready to go. The Atlas jackplate, Minn-Kota Talons and Humminbird Solix units are going to be here soon. I'll post more pictures as these items get installed. This season is going to be a great one!
Lyal and Casey were added to the Lund pro-staff team this season. Both will be running a new 2075 Pro V Bass for 2017. The boats are being rigged by Bass Brawl Outdoors and will be ready to go when the lakes open up. Some of the key accessories include 12' Minn-Kota Talons on the rear, a 10" Atlas Jackplate, 15" Humminbird Solix on the console, 2 15" Humminbird Solix on the bow, Minn-Kota Ultrex on the bow, Humminbird 360 on the bow and a T-H Marine Hydrowave on the bow. Both boats will be fish catching machines and put to use on a bunch of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota lakes. If you like what you see, please stop at Ray's Marine in Moorhead, MN and ask for Mike Olson. Tell him Bass Brawl Outdoors sent you. They will take care of you before and after the sale. Lund offers both an 18' and 20' model.
