    Rattlesnake key
  2. VMAX Oil Tank rigging compartment

    Change the oil filter and triple check that harness while you have the tank out both are known culprits for issues down the road
  3. Minn Kota Quick release on 2400v

    Just did the same forward bolts went thru the hull behind rub rail, made an aluminum barstock backer plate on underside and double nutted. Rear screws I used the mk self tightening rubber grommets with no way to mount it through the deck. Did not trust the aluminum plate only that is made in the boat. Cleared the clear with no issues when motor is on the boat.
  4. BPS is doing the 6 payment option right now and seems like a good idea to replace my trolling motor using this option. What is the best value between MinnKota 24v and Motor Guide 24v? spot lock is important to me, do both motors have to work through electronics?? prefer 80lb thrust or highest 24v available pros and cons corrosion protection and longevity?
  5. Recommendations on wireless trolling motors

    I bought the Minn Kota I-Pilot and couldn’t be happier so far. Remote is a bit heavy around my neck all day but once I’ve gotten use to the remote and functions it’s been great.
  6. Tired of wet feet

    I have installed rabuds years ago and no real help with scuppers taking on water in the cockpit of my 22te when I have more then one other person in the boat or livewells full. Considering plugging the floor drains with 5 inch standpipes while in use. Im never in a situation that I could take one over the bow and could easily pull the pipes if a situation arose. Anyone else do this? Work well?
  7. My son is 10 and plays travel baseball as well as rec. I have managed his teams most of his young career in baseball. Lost the past 7 spring and fall fishing seasons to baseball but love the game and the time with my son and dad on the field. How many of you guys have also had this experience with your kids? Any professional coachs on here? The experience has been very rewarding but selfishly I really want to get in more time on the boat one of these spring and fall seasons!
  8. Telltale, where do you guys play tourneys usually?
  9. What did you do to your boat today?

    New Shoes and no where to go, dang baseball season!

    The forum never disappoints rabuds were not right thanks guys
  11. Engine Alarm

    Same here
  12. Tired of wet feet

    Yes taking the grates off and inserting standpipes so the water level would have to be higher level inside the standpipe to overflow to flood the floor. Can not get to the tubing under the deck as far as I can tell. Do not want to make the boat bilge dependent only for draining.
  13. Tired of wet feet

    Rabuds are installed with spacers correctly but have not helped with the water intrusion in the floor scuppers. May replace flaps behind rabuds again to see if that helps. With a 5 in standpipe, i would not think water intrusion would happen after inserting, and not enough water could collect to get to electrical under console. Easy to pull at the dock or in case of emergency
  14. 2005 2200v trolling motor

    I installed a terrova 24v 80lb on my 22te. First time out, spot lock held my boat and a 22 hydra sport tied off to mine in place in moderate wind. I was more then impressed.
  15. HELP! What is happening with my new motor?

    What rpm are you at? Hitting rev limiter?
  16. What did you do to your boat today?

    Installed a Minn Kota Ipilot with spot lock. What a gamechanger

  19. Cheap 21 Master Angler

    In Winter Haven all the time, can put an eye on it if you need it.
  20. The rain has a lot of moving water in the lakes in Lakeland right now. Its paying off with catching some green fish!
  21. Who's running vmax

    250 vmax hpdi on 22te 58@5700ish rpm yam 21p three blade

    Launched at 2 pm to catch the afternoon heavy outgoing. Bait was one and done just outside of Cockroach. Bait everywhere really. Headed up the river to try our hand at something new and the backflow from the developing storm made us leave. Headed south toward the old ferry dock, good water clarity but appeared to be an algae bloom on top of the water. As the tide got right we headed to the honey hole and it produced. Snook freejumping. Popping 50 yards in all directions. Caught many 22s and occasional small trout. Hooked and kept one top slot Red. Rolled back to the ramp with just enough moonlight to spot markers on the way in. Beautiful night in the bay and all to ourselves after the storms blew everyone else away.

  24. Never-ending Verado Issues...

    Highly recommend Tom Reitan at Marine Supply and his team of mechanics. They are merc and yam certified, plus mechanics not parts changers. Sounds like a harness/ground issue. Could take a long tedious time to diagnose wiring.
