  1. Smith optics warranty

    I have had the same service from them, I love all of my Smith's!
  2. Couple of t/m questions

    what size boat? I am running a 24vdc / 80# on my 17 MA and it works great...
  3. 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...?
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Proud to introduce Lake Maverick!

    Pretty cool Skip...
  9. Check and see if they won't replace the tongue or modify yours?
  10. New Redfisher 18 / Introduction

  11. Maverick 26 Master Angler OMG

    Bring me a new 21’ and I would be a very happy man!
  12. On board charger

    Yep... I have seen it out in LA at a couple redfish tournaments, but you're right…. All that glitters!!!
  13. 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...
  14. Jack Plates by Seastar, Who Woulda Thunk It!

    That is the old Detwieler jack plate. they bought them a few years ago. Detwieler built them for years out in South Texas...
  15. 2006 18 Master Angler with a F150

    Hey Nag... How's it going? Any luck with the Mav?
  16. It is very possible that the length of the sending unit is incorrect from the tank supplier, even today with the new diurnal standards and the negative affect that has on fuel capacities the issue that you are describing sounds like the tank supplier ran a series with an incorrect sending unit. If it's to short it can't read.
  17. Cup holders that fit Yeti, Rtic tumblers

    Here is a quick pick with a full size RTIC tumbler...
  18. Cup holders that fit Yeti, Rtic tumblers

    Tigress makes a cup holder designed to fit all Yeti style cups, its pretty new (we just came out with them end of 17'), they're big but they work great. A number of OEM's are now offering them on their boats... not cheap though? But well made.. I'll post some pics and a contact at a retail outlet in a bit okay?
  19. Casting Platform Height (W/ Backrest)

    Measure to the top of your hips, that would become the top of the leaning post pad, your seat should fit in it. IMO the backrest should fall at that point for comfort and also to maintain a lower profile for casting etc..
  20. 2006 18 Master Angler with a F150

    Good luck man, I love your boat... I just wish the wifey would let me bring another one home because that’d be the one! Great price!!!

  23. Newbie owner here 1987 18 Maverick

    way to go! Congratulations on a great boat!
  24. I have had it on my F250 for a few years now, been awesome (IMO), really easy to wash and it makes getting the bugs off the front grill WAY easier... And it hasn't lost any luster or ability to bead water at all, so far.
