  7. Hull color for 2000 model 2200V

    Anybody know the hull color for a 2000 model 2200V? Its and off white and for some reason I am thinking I have heard it called oyster but want to be sure. I have some scratches and a spot I need to touch up on my keel.
  8. Sea Tow or Boat US Service

    I am in Texas so not sure how helpful this info is but: I have BoatUS and have had to use it 2 times in the last few years. Once locally and another time down in South Padre. Bot times they were great and did not have any hidden or extra fees beyond my yearly membership. I have heard of SeaTow charging extra fees or saying tows were not covered by regular membership in my area. The way it was explained to me was both are franchises that a captain can buy into for a specific area but that the SeaTow captains get paid through memberships fees rather than being paid on a per tow basis whereas the BoatUS are paid for each tow directly by the mother company. The theory is that SeaTow has more incentive to charge extra fees to recoup their expenses.
  9. Opinion needed custom console rail

    The way my light bar is mounted up high on the burn burn works great and without much if any glare. I use it all the time. In fact I used it this morning running to Baffin in the dark.
  10. Opinion needed custom console rail

    I say go for it. I added a burn bar and had them make a small platform as well that I can stand on and sight cast from in addition to it holding my LED light bar. I will be doing something similar to what you describe for the shade as well. Here is a pic (scroll down to the 4th post) of one similar to what I will be doing. http://2coolfishing.com/ttmbforum/showthread.php?t=1979266 There are pics of my burn bar and LED light bar here http://mbgforum.com/topic/2603-led-light-bar/
  11. Many including myself have put in a TH Marine hatch. Mine is a different boat but the concept is the same. I needed more space as well. It requires some cutting but not bad once you get it laid out. I don't know if I have a picture or not but I will look and see. I went with this style so that I could remove the whole hatch lid as opposed to trying to prop it open when I am working in the bilge http://thmarine.com/th-marine-products/access-hatches-doors/access-hatches/designer-series-access-hatches/designer-series-hatches-removable.html
  12. 2000 Model 2200V thru-hull transducer question?

    Thanks for the input. I was hoping this was something factory installed so I would have an easier time figuring out if it is compatible with my currrent gps (Lowrance HDS7 Touch Gen3) and get its specs so that I could find a replacement.
  13. When I re-powered I replaced the steering cylinder but was told the hoses were fine so they stayed. Now I am noticing that they are kinking when I turn the wheel to full cock. I am thinking I may just change them out. Ideally I would pull one of the old hoses to get an exact measurement and just order hoses from that, but I don't like being without my boat so I would prefer to just order new ones and replace them when the new ones get here. Anybody know the length offhand? My steering wheel is mounted on the lower lefthand side of the console. Thanks
  14. Does anybody know what thru-hull transducer would have been installed on my rig? I am assuming it was at the factory. I never knew I had a through hull transducer until I was working on my bilge pump a few days ago and saw the through hull with a wire coming out the top of it. Crawled up under the trailer and saw the black circle on the bottom of the hull with the wire coming out up in the bilge. I am wondering if it would work with my Lowrance HDS7 Gen3 Touch. Bad thing is I cut the connector off when I was derigging my boat in preparation for the re-power. I am having an issue with the transom mounted ducer and was looking at the possibility of another through hull.
  15. Repowered my rig with a Yamaha 200 SHO

    Thanks for the feedback. I was/am a very happy camper during and after my initial test run.
