  1. T-top Canvas

    How do you like the Velcro/slits for the rod tips?
  2. T-Top

    Outlaw I sent a PM
  3. T-Top

    Outlaw, where are you located in Fort Lauderdale?
  4. Pathfinder 22 - GPS Upgrade

    I have my radio and VHF stacked on the right side and an 840xs on the left.
  5. Will be over on the 27 -28th will probably be staying at the Rod & Gun Club,
  6. Brand new boat-Live wells flooding

    How tall is your drain pipe in reference to the top of your live well? You may want to cut it down just a little to lower the drain pipe.
  7. HPS 23 Anchor Locker

    I do two things to protect against the anchor from banging around in the locker, First, I lined my locker from all the way down on the bottom of the locker floor up to the top with the 12" square rubber mats from West marine. I have four running up the center. at first they are a little stiff but flexible enough to fold to fit the inside angle of hull. After a while they conform to fit nicely. Second, I use a piece of a pool noodle, slit down one side and it fits snug on anchor on shaft. I also keep a towel folded over the top of the anchor which keeps it snug against hatch when closed, keeps it from bouncing upward.
  8. VHF radio and antenna installation

    I have the same set up, keep the Shakespeare emergency antenna connected and coiled up inside console, able to pull out and place on top of T-Top if needed.
  9. Having 5 batteries in a 2017 2200trs

    Can you get four in the console? I have a 2400 TRS and have a four battery set up, one cranking/house and three for the trolling motor. The one cranking/house is sufficient, I run up to three livewells and all my other electronics all day with out any problems. you may want to consider this set up. Just a thought
  10. I had some work done by "Solid Powerboats Service" located in Doral. They do warranty work and touch up work for Marine Connection which is a MBC dealer. They did great work and price was fair. Solid Powerboats Service 7724 NW 56th street Doral, FL 33166 (305)463-0707
  11. Bay boat Dolphin tournament!

    Thanks for sharing the info, I may fish this.
  12. Advice on VHF radio and antenna

    Not really sure, when out on the ocean I can hear all the charter captains in local area and have received radio checks. I don't really use it much and if I was in a situation that I needed it I would pull it out and extend as high as possible. I can tell you it is not as good as my 3' whip mounted on console as it is.. I just wanted the emergency antenna on hand until I figure where I want to mount one.
  13. 24 TRS TM Battery Location

    Here is my set up, 4 group 31's in console, used two layers starboard to create base above inspection hatch. In the event I need to get to the hatch remove battery and the top piece of starboard. You can put batteries in the lower hatch behind the leaning post, but it is a wet compartment, and my opinion is the best weight distribution is in the console where you have them. also the best use of available space and frees up that rear lower hatch for more storage. I use mine for my cast net.
  14. Advice on VHF radio and antenna

    On my last boat I had the 3' whip digital spring release antenna on my console. Since I got my new boat I just haven't decided where to mount one that will be effective and clean, so for now I keep an emergency antenna with 25' of coaxle cable connected and coiled up under the console. As it is, when I'm on open water I get some range, In an emergency I can move it to the top of T-top or affix it to a pole.
  15. 24 TRS TM Battery Location

    Is that starboard under the battery trays? How did you fasten it down. What did you do to level up the starboard that sits over the inspection plate? Thanks
