    Couple of t/m questions

    what size boat? I am running a 24vdc / 80# on my 17 MA and it works great...

    17' Maverick MA prop suggestion

    I like it a lot, it does run good and it turns well and it doesn't blowing out, IMO it's not great speed... I really was hoping for low 50's? But high 40's is really just right for that hull and for me! Let me also mention, after I posted I looked at my notes (on the boat in E-City...) and it was just at 48 rather than 49, sorry to misrepresent that, made a mistake...?

    17' Maverick MA prop suggestion

    I run a 2000 Mav 17 MA with a Merc 115 Pro XS, prop is a Turning Point 14.5 x 19 / 4 blade... My motor turns at 6150 RPM (Mfg. max RPM is 6300) and alone with full fuel I am just touching 49 MPH... boats jumps up very well, and I also use my trim tabs to accelerate the hole shot … Obviously drop off with additional people is there and I think the overall weight on our boats is about the same, setups sound the same... good luck!

    2004 17 maverick master angler repowered

    Wow... I am running a Merc 115 pro XS with a Turning Point 14.5 x 19 / 4 Blade, 6150 RPM just at 49 MPH full fuel..... That prop is a bit unique, 2 rounded dog ear blades and 2 opposing cutting blades, great hole shot with nominal top end and RPM drop. This motor max RPM is 6300.

    Stereo Systems for MA17

    Fusion MS RA 55 (small very compact 6.1/4" x 2.5" x 2.1/4" deep ) 2 DP Bluetooth streaming is IP 65 rated, 2 Fusion signature 6.5" speakers 230 W, (you can add an MS-AM702 zone amp if you like as well (140W) its a very low voltage and compact class D 2 OHM stable) That package speaker radio setup will run you about 300.00 and will sound very good, check around for pricing? (I am running same basic setup in my 17 MA). If you want to go way up I can give you some ideas on that as well...

    Proud to introduce Lake Maverick!

    Pretty cool Skip...
  8. Check and see if they won't replace the tongue or modify yours?
  9. Well, the extent of the manufacturing and product consolidation continues! First this week we see that Brunswick is closing the Sea Ray Yacht division and the Florida plants (understandably so, cant keep losing money?)… But then in less than 2 days they spend nearly a BILLION dollars (910 million dollar purchase) and buy Power Products to add to their portfolio! Huge...

    Yep... I have seen it out in LA at a couple redfish tournaments, but you're right…. All that glitters!!!

    On board charger

    I am running a Powermania, for me it was important that I had a waterproof charger, one that would charge each profile and one that would charge on low AC input power. For example, if you're at a small hotel down in the end unit and there are half dozen boats between you and the front door you "may" be getting 100 volts AC, then you hang an extension chord of 25' that plugs into the onboard. About that time your AC line loss could be down another couple of volts, most chargers won't work at or below those levels, Powermania will put out 100% power at 90 VAC.... And it'll recharge a dead battery. Now allow me to qualify, I also am the manufacturers rep for that charger brand... but they do work well and better than most, but certainly use what you are most comfortable with...
