  1. Powerpole tubing through transom, yay or nay?

    I ran mine through the splashwell because i didn't want any more thru hull holes. I ran them through hydraulic bulk head fittings. That way they matched the seastar and jackplate fittings. They are the hydraulic bulk head fittings on either side of the splash well. They worked great to fit both hoses through one fitting.
  2. Are the rod holders structural

    On both my Hewes Bayfisher and Hewes Light Tackle they provide support for the gunnels. They are not attached but there is very little space between them. And when you walk on them the gunnels touch them when they save a little under weight.

    Looks like a great day. Glad to see that boat running great and catching fish.
  4. POLL: 2017 - more good than bad, or more bad than good?

    There is a place in Tampa that made mine. The take the measurements off of your current one. Also multiple tints. Www.plasticsamerica.com
  6. Trolling motor / Chargers for 23' Pathfinder

    Stealth AC/DC charging system is the way to go. I rarely plug my boat in anymore.

    Hand or remote control?
  8. TM battery question

    Just upgraded to 36v from 24v. Don’t mind the added battery. That was the only change to my setup and love it.
  9. Redfisher 19 Lappy vs. LT 20

    I have a 225 optimax on my LT. I've had it up to 48 but have a rough bottom so I know I am loosing speed there. But it's a great boat. If I could have found a master angler 21 when I was looking I would have bought it. But the LT has worked out great and don't think I will get rid of it. Too many memories rebuilding it with my father.
  10. Redfisher 19 Lappy vs. LT 20

    The red fisher will be a faster boat as it is narrow and lighter. The size difference when you are on the deck seems big. The LT has a ton of room everywhere. I looked at a 19 before I bought my LT but just wanted more storage and a wider all around boat. Both should float in pretty much the same amount of water. I do love the front livewell on the 19 though. I wish my LT had one of those. Hard to go wrong with either one.
  11. Northbound traffic

    Strapped the boat down outside at the house in plant city and hoping for the best. I'll be at work till probably Tuesday at least. Hoping it keeps trending west at this point. Hope everyone is safe.
  12. Keel Guard on MA17

    You know the old saying. You can do it cheap or you can do it right. You will end up doing it right eventually and then it definitely won't be cheap. As much as you use your boat $400 isn't bad at all.

    I will be here if it hits but I will be working. Hoping we only get the side of it and not a direct hit. I would highly recommend anyone that is in the path of the hurricane to evacuate and not wait till the end.
  14. Keel repair

    I have the line x keel guard. It works good. It is smooth and I can't see it causing any more loss of speed than a regular keel guard will if any. The only issue is that dealing with the shop that does it isn't the best any a long shot. I like it but probably will not do it again just do to the way I was treated. Good luck.
