    Maverick 17 HPXV Carbon Edition

    Curious, outside of cost, what is the downside of using carbon on the hull?

    Back at it

    This thread has been a bit of an embarrassment, we need a little action on it! Had a chance to spend an entire day fishing with my kids on Monday before the cold weather showed up. Took two of the kids dawn patrolling north of the ramp looking for Trput, then swapped out kids and took two others South and then up the Cape Fear river to hunt Striper and Reds. Did a little charting and realized I put 80 miles on the boat, not a bad day! The trout proved to be really tough fishing, and the ones we found were very picky. Got two decent (18 & 19) and then a dink. Luckily the Lizardfish and flounder kept the kids busy, and my son managed to catch a large Octopus inshore, which was a first for me and really exciting for the kids. Round 2 was far more successful - we managed 5 rat reds and missed a bunch of others, then found the stripers and ended up landing 5, again missing at least as many as we landed. Weather couldnt have been more pleasant for mid November, but the wind started kicking up in the afternoon as we headed home. A little over 10 miles of wind vs. tide river chop reminded me why Master Angler hull has such a cult following. A little trim tabs and we were cruising on a magic carpet ride. Great day with great fishing partners.

    For the cooks

    +1 here - I need to expand my menu. Seems like I always do fish the same way lately. Now that I have the boat back, I am hoping we'll be eating more of it!

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Thanks all, I will definitely do that. She will look better with a new rope in that rub rail. Was always sorry Maverick moved away from that look, was always so distinctive, and downright practical.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Now you tell me! Just spent an hour reinstalling the 4' of old rub rail with a heat gun and two screwdrivers. Will keep that in mind when I get the new rope, but will wait till a nice sunny 110 degree day!

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Got to spend the entire day cleaning up the boat and working out little bugs. Every light in the boat works, every switch, everything is right. Fuel sender gave me an issue in the a.m., but found corrosion that caused it and addressed that. 2 years of sitting in shops put a lot of dust, dirt, and grime in every cornern and crevice. The amount of durt in and around the hatches was impressive. I took out the old cooler brackets, dont need em sonce it has integrated strap holders. She is now sparkling clean, every bit of her waxed and flawless. still need to replace the rope in the rubrail, but will have to wait for a really hot day. Even with a heat gun it is too slow going. So glad to have her back.

    Console courtesy light LED bulb replacement

    Well, after doing more research, I answered my first question, but for any others who are looking, I'm going to replace the bulb with this: https://www.amazon.com/Shangyuan-Marine-Festoon-Navigation-Masthead/dp/B07G3G95W5/ref=pd_sbs_263_1/143-5375919-0691017?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07G3G95W5&pd_rd_r=67830ba8-46d1-4fa4-9d99-a8b391adf536&pd_rd_w=f6lyE&pd_rd_wg=ZwqDR&pf_rd_p=52b7592c-2dc9-4ac6-84d4-4bda6360045e&pf_rd_r=PXJBZ4F8HMYHNK234SRX&psc=1&refRID=PXJBZ4F8HMYHNK234SRX Hope it fits. Couldn't find an LED for the second one, so still looking.

    Console courtesy light LED bulb replacement

    And, since I'm at it, my stern light is an aqua signal series 20 all around navigation light. https://www.westmarine.com/buy/aqua-signal--series-20-all-round-navigation-light-replacement-lens--145297?&mrkgcl=481&mrkgadid=3090701160&cm_mmc=PS-_-Google-_-GSC>NonB>Product%20Type-_-145297&product_id=145297&creative=108421552324&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyv_mo4bW5QIVc4NaBR3b8gYnEAQYBSABEgLd2_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds The bulb is burnt out and I'm replacing it with this: https://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Signal-Bayonet-Incandescent-Navigation/dp/B001GXDN0Y/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Series+20+BA9s+Mini&qid=1573059640&s=hi&sr=1-2 I can't, for the life of me find an LED replacement. Anyone know of one?
  14. Hey all - anyone have a link to an LED replacement bulb for the standard courtesy lights on the Maverick MA consoles? I'll post a pic of the light momentarily.
