Well i best revise my thoughts on fixing my Venture Lite. Estimated cost to repair, $6,900. Haha i best jus go with a new sled. Best start looking for something. I still have to tear down my 440Lt's. I have a new motor and Seat for one already, but have to rebuild the other Lt. Oh well win some lose some.

Thanks for the comeback Dirt. I was thinking the same thing. Last new machine I bought was a bravo 8 years ago. A hold over model for $2800. ;0) Before that it was a Indy supertrack in 1989. ;0)

After a broken outboard and a tow home on Saturday, my son and I set some "in town" beaver traps. He was so excited to check them this morning that his sister found him on the couch with a pop tart in his hand at 3am. My daughter says, "get back to bed, it's not morning, it's still the middle of the night!"

Took advantage of my day off and built me a quick skinning shack. Used the deck as the base, came together pretty quick with a helpin hand from the old man. Managed to also salvage a window and door from our latest job site

Looks like you used part of your outside deck ? Should be very serviceable. Can you post inside pictures once done ?

Got to workin on my 440 lt's last couple days. 2.5 inches of mud covered snowmachines. inside and out. Got them pressure washed out real good and tore apart. Wd'ed everything, went through 4 cans so far on two sled. 6 gallons of mix gas washing everything. Flushed the motors out, actually didn't have rust in the case on them. One carb worked and the other is locked tight. Going to put new carbs/cables on both. Pistons and cylinders look great. Going to rebuiled both motors anyway so i am off to a good start on them. Things are looking up so far. Biggest thing is new seat foam to find. Good luck with the up coming season.

Man that sounds rough YT! My parents are town, Pop's helping me do maintenance on the machines. Man, twice my lifetime of tinkering sure helps pull stuff apart!

Good luck getting those machines running!

Deer season opened on the island today. Got out there and sat in the truck for half an hour waiting for it to get light. I was only in the muskeg for about 10 minutes and saw this guy. Dropped him at about 60 yards.



With all the brownies on showing up on the island, I sure felt a lot safer having my new .460 with me while boning him out.
