    ordered: Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid

    Called my dealer he told me ship date now shows April 09. Thanks I'll verify. I had this same Yamaha issue with a new Ranger bass boat last year. Finally gave up on Yamaha and got Mercury. I'll do the same thing on this rig if Yamaha can't get their house in order.

    ordered: Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid

    Sent Skip the Simrad NSS12 Evo & Rhodan for them to install. Build date is approaching - March 27. Trying to decide on batteries for the Rhodan. Saw Li batteries at the Bassmaster Classic this past weekend - 40 pound weight savings per battery (3*40=120 lb) and 10-year warranty may be my ticket. 2 - 3 times the cost of AGMs but maybe worth it. Also still figuring out motor support for towing leaning toward Motor Mate who was also at the Classic.

    outboard motor support

    Same thing happened to me with my Maverick HPX 18 to both ram seals using My Wedge.

    What do you guys use to support a Yamaha F300 when towing? I like Motor Mate for my bass and flats boats but I don't find a model for the F300 on their web site. I want something for the PF 2500 Hybrid with a Yamaha F300 I've ordered since I'll be towing several hundred miles to fish until I retire.

    Anybody know if I can flush mount a Simrad NSS EVO3 16" on the 2500 hybrid? I know a 12" will fit. I can't do the Garmin from the factory since they do not read Florida Marine Tracks.

    That snow camo is a great choice with grey. I have that on my grey hulled HPX on the bow and polling platforms.

    Another question - any recommendations on the transducer for a Simrad NSS Evo 3? Thanks.

    Minn Kota or Motorguide

    Rhodan. Call and talk to them. Every aspect of their construction is more heavy duty and protected for the salt water marine environment than the big 2. If you can go to a boat show and see them and compare to the others, you will be convinced. Their customer service is hands down better than the big 2 (not that you will need it for a Rhodan).

    ordered: Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid

    Yesterday, I ordered a 2500 Hybrid. Pretty excited to have this boat that will allow me to fish inside and expand my range outside since I am coming out of a Maverick HPX V 18. Skip is going to check on this for me after the Miami Boat Show but I have a question for other owners of this boat. Has anyone installed radar on this boat? I want to but only if the T Top is engineered for the added mass. I am going to buy my own electronics (I have no problem rigging). I'm pretty set on a Simrad NSS Evo3 12" (absolutely want a unit that is compatible with Florida Marine Tracks) at the helm, a Rhodan 36 volt up front, and a GPS/AIS VHF. I want the Furuno 1935 radar so hopefully the T Top is capable already or can be beefed up at the factory.

    2500 Hybrid a year later

    Great review. I'm really thinking of taking the plunge on one of these. I have a 2013 HPXV 18 now that I ordered. I put the Rhodan on my HPX after too many solo trips being inefficient fishing trying to pole myself. MBC makes great boats.
