  1. Hull pad?

    I can only speak for my 2007 2200V, but it doesn't have a pad. It does have a pocket, but I am pretty sure that is not considered a pad. A pad is a flat section on the keel at the stern. Here is an image of a pad, and the pocket on my boat.
  2. Hull pad?

    Hmmmm. I didn't know any Pathfinders had a pad.
  3. Capt. Troys Marina????

    I went sail fishing in Guatemala a few years ago. The marina had an armed guard with an AK type weapon stationed on the dock 24/7. Sounds like your marina needs to do the same!
  4. 2012 24 TRS 300 yamaha prop

    Look under the topic Pathfinder prop discussion above. There are several good threads about your setup.
  5. New Master Angler???

    Not exactly the same. The higher over the gunnel, as in the boat in the picture, the more extreme the movement will be. Compare running a boat from a tuna tower vs the flybridge.
  6. Happy Birthday America

    Yep. Great picture suitable for Time-Life! Did Ron take that picture?
  7. Bottom paint

    For small, trailer type boats, say like bay boats or flats boats, many of my friends are just like me! We would not even consider buying a boat that has been bottom painted. Period. It doesn't matter what the topside condition is. We just wouldn't go look. Too many to choose from without even having to consider a bottom painted boat!
  8. Bad Day

    That should be a lesson to marina operators. They should have standards that in-water owners should have to adhere to.......or be run out! These type owners and their boats can be a threat to other boats in close proximity. Sometimes, their money might not be worth it.
  9. Towing 2200V as a tender

    Are you considering the trailer towing bow eye to be a "relatively high tow attachment point?" I don't see how you could get a "lower" attachment point?
  10. 23 HPS TRADE for 24 TRS

    And I thought I had a nice collection of coolers!!!!! Good luck with your boat!
  11. Man, sorry for your problem. And to your credit, you are taking it like a real classy gentlemen (much better than me!). Seems like most MBG folks are like that, with me being the exception! Good luck!
  12. Friction Hinge for Front Dry Storage

    Maxum Hardware is the distributor for the Ameratool gas shocks. I ordered them straight from them. The SS ends look a lot better than the black plastic ends.
  13. Friction Hinge for Front Dry Storage

    If the friction hinges won't work, you can replace the ball sockets on the end of the gas shocks with stainless steel balls. They are a nice upgrade and real cheap and easy to do. I don't think you will see them wear out! LOL Just sayin'.....
  14. Boat rehab

    Nice job! Congratulations! Hope you mess it up real soon with some fish slime!
  15. Bad Day

    That 's ugly!!!!! And unfortunate.
  16. New Bimini Top for 2200 TRS

    You have a nice ride!!!!! I have flirted several times with getting a bimini, thinking I could use it during the hot summer when we are just using the boat for dinner runs and booze cruises and such, and still be able to take it off for serious fishing in the fall and winter. I think you done good!
  17. Fishing shoes

    Just got a pair of Crocs with boat shoe bottoms. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet, tho.
  18. Pathfinder Helm Seat

    Pretty sure you can work something out between Ray (parts manager at MBG) and a local dealer. Like someone once said, everything is for sale, at the right price!
  19. Trailer Advice

    I think the law in Georgia is if the GVWR of the trailer is over 3000 lbs, each wheel must have brakes.
  20. Looking for a 2000V..

    You are how you feel! Marinas are now forced to accept all versions, regardless of what you say you are!!!!!
  21. What did you do to your boat today?

    Hey. A young guy named Zach Buckley doing ”bidness” as Wicked Ouboards up in Charleston. Nice guy! He does a lot of work for all those SC builders like Key West, Scout, Freeman, etc. He’s pretty talented, for sure. He told me he’s painted over 1400 ouboards, but this is his first Pathfinder.
  22. What did you do to your boat today?

    Now I need to find out if the little feesh approve!!!!! Hopefully, it will double the catch! LOL
  23. What did you do to your boat today?

    See what you could have if you leave those flatter boats (the dark side) behind, and see the light!!!!! LOL
  24. Trailer Advice

    Wise choice. Admirals have good judgment!
  25. What did you do to your boat today?

    I went and done it. Matched the motor to the boat.
