    Aluminum vs Steel Trailer Wheels

    My Ameritrail trailer has aluminum wheels. I applied Sharkhide two years ago when It was new, I do hose it down with fresh water after each use, but it only sees salt water when I launch. So far they look like new. Fish the boat a couple times a month. Shark Hide aint cheap but it works. I do agree that galvanized are the way to go, less up keep, plus as said a can of cold galvanizing or paint and they look good as new.
  2. Am always catch and release, they say Snook is a very tasty fish, never have eaten it. I would love to see the stock build up for Snook and Reds, nothing more fun to catch. Well, except maybe a big Jack for a fight.

    I Want FMT! What Would You Do?

    Looks nice. My dash with the square gauges doesn't have enough room the way its layed out. Designing the dash layout to begin with I could see how it would fit. But to retro fit it I would have to move a lot of wiring and electronics around for enough space.

    Looking at trying a Ram Mount off the side of the console, that I could move out of the way when fishing, or walking around the side of the boat if it sticks out too far. https://www.rammount.com/

    Mine is a 2015 RF 18, and that's why I asked, when I put 7 inches on top of the console, unless I was looking way ahead, my vision was impaired also. I guess its a different console height than some others. May have to figure out a different mounting system.

    Question for the folks that mounted the chart plotter on the top of the console, does it bother your vision any looking forward? Was in my 18 Rf doing some measurements and don't have room where the 741 garmin is to put a bigger plotter. So looking at putting it on top of the console but sitting on the seat it looks like it would block my vision looking forward a little.

    Power Tech Pro3 Propeller

    Sorry guys......decided to keep the 19 and have it tweaked just a little for a few more RPMs. Its at Leading Edge Propeller getting a little love, waiting for a phone call to pick it up. Really liked the way the 19 ran, just need a little more rpm. Rich looked at it and decided he could make a couple of adjustments so I am waiting for it to be finished. Will report back once it is done.

    Damit…..why did I click on this link. Curious what FMT was I guess. What a great Idea, never new it existed. Have been wishing their was something like this available. I fish in a lot of areas that are new to me around Charlotte Harbor that have very skinny water and narrow openings, this is perfect. Of course I have a Garmin Plotter. I can see this is going to be expensive. More money. lol.

    Nice Inshore Suprise.

    Went to my local bait shop to get some live shrimp. None to be had because of the storms the past couple of days. Decided to go out and chase some Jacks with the boat, if any could be found. Was fishing the NW Spreader Canal in Cape Coral Fl. Couldn't find any Jacks...decided to drag a Yo-Zuri lure down the canal. I thought I snagged the bottom at first....then realized it was a fish. Was in the boat alone so I just grabbed this one picture and got her back in the water. What a nice surprise.
