    Thanks for the replies.
  2. Boat cover for hewes

    Does anyone have any experience with boatcoverdirect.com ? looks like they also have a good selection of custom covers by manufacture and model
  3. Boat cover for hewes

    Thanks guys. I’ll check it out. Much rather get something that’s already built to fit then getting it custom made
  4. Boat cover for hewes

    Hey guys, the boat cover that came with my boat is starting to become unraveled at the seams. It’s past the point I want to get it fixed at 100 bucks an hour. Was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for a new boat cover. Not looking to get a custom one. Would like to keep it under 500if possible. The boat is a year 2000 18ft hewes bayfisher with a poling platform. I think the cover that I received when I bought it is not a custom cover, but fits perfectly. Hoping to find another like it. thanks for any info matt
  5. Perko battery switch question

    Quick update. The battery is toast. The sticker on the side says “F0” and after looking online it appears that means it was manufactured in June of 2010. Now I am in the market for a good starting battery for my 2017 Suzuki 115. Can anyone with a similar engine let me know what they use as far as manufacture and size? It is imperative to use a strictly starting battery or will a dual purpose work? Thank you
  6. Battery

    The seavolt West Marine starting battery I have in the boat for the past two years seemed to work good with the new Suzuki until it is now dead. It is a group 24 and meets all the criteria you mentioned above minus the RC. It is only 120. Are there any group 24 batteries you know of that meet the criteria or would you switch to a group 27. If possible, I’d like to not add anymore weight on the boat with a heavier battery. thank you for the feedback

    It’s a 2017 Suzuki 115.

    Do you guys prefer AGMs for starting/cranking batteries?
  9. Perko battery switch question

    Yeah it’s a west marine group 24 maintenance free starting battery. If it needs replacing, what kind of starting battery do you guys recommend. I’d prefer a maintenance free AGM one
  10. Perko battery switch question

    Thanks for the clarification. I thought I read online 9.5 volts was considered a “dead” battery but i must have misinterpreted it and it might mean “not salvageable” It’s at least 4 years old (the time since I’ve had the boat) . I do not know when the previous owner bought the battery but it might finally be dead for good and time to replace , but I’ll get it checked out. Thanks for all the advice guys
  11. Perko battery switch question

    Quick update, I out a voltmeter on the battery terminals and it showed over 11 volts so the battery appears good. Didn’t have time to check the connections to the perko switch yet. Going to unscrew the switch from the boat and check the wire connections that attach to the switch. will update I as do it.
  12. Off topic....... Costa Rica car rentals

    Thanks guys. I have read good things about VAMOS rental Company. Anyone have any personal experience?
  13. Going down to Costa Rica at the end of April and seeking advice about car rentals. Many sources online suggest the insurance is more than the actual rental it self. Can anyone please give some advice on what they recommend based on their past experiences with car rentals in Costa Rica. What insurance policy did you and what rental company did you use. We will be flying into San Jose airport and we need a 4x4 vehicle. This will be our first time there thank you for any help hoping some forum members have experience with this
