    Pathfinder 2200v prop size

    i don't know what you need, but i agree on lowering the pitch. i had the same engine on a 02 2200v and ran a 14 1/2 x 20 with a cup. changed engines, to a in line 200 4 stroke yammie and after playing with a half dozen props, wound up with the same prop with the cup taken out. propping a boat can drive you crazy.

    Livewell Pump Prime

    i have valves in each live well. they work off the same 1100 pump. when they don't want to prime, i shut off the control valves in each well for about 10-15 seconds, then open one of them. this usually gets them primed. sometimes i just shut the pump off for a minute or 2, then restart and it will prime

    AmeriTrail axle replacement

    i repair trailers and i charge twice as much if the boat is on the trailer. personally, i wouldn't want anyone using those kinds of tools that close to my hull.

    2004 Gas odor

    you won't be pulling that tank without cutting the deck. best find the leak and fix it.

    2004 Gas odor

    the vent hose on my tank was barely on the nipple and i had a gas smell also. i too the clamp off, cut a inch off the hose and reinstalled it. no more smell. hope your fix is as easy.

    Looking for ideas for new fish cleaning stand

    i made these and they're holding up well. 1st one had the aluminum legs welded and plumbed for water, but a freeze got it and split the pipe. won't do that again.

    Repower Pathfinder 2200V-TE

    i put a in line 4 cyl 200 yammie on my 02 2200v. top end is same as the 200 hpdi i had and fuel economy is up. hole shot suffered a bit, but after playing with props, i can live with it. wot is 57 and top end is 50. almost 400 hrs now and still happy.

    Fuel send unit access on redfisher 18

    chances are that the unit is fine, the ground wire is probably corroded or even broken at the crimp. don't have a clue where it is at on your boat. on mine, 2200v, it's under the console and there's a access hatch in the floor of the console. good luck.

    Leaning Post Mod.

    i redid mine with chairs from a offshore boat. this is the best pic i have. they rotate 360 and fold forward with a small storage area under them.

    Battery post distribution block

    i didn't use the TT because i wanted a perko switch in the line. i have my jack plate, bilge pump and power pole on that battery. my neighbors boat caught fire in the boathouse because something in the power pole system shorted out. i like the switch to kill all power to everything while it's sitting there.
