  1. Chokoloskee update?

    Im headed over for labor day, staying at outdoor resorts. Anyone on here goin?
  2. Why would west marine warranty a part they don't manufacture? I remember my first livewell pump failure....lol. Manufacture warranty to west marine warranty, two different deals. Don't think you will get treated better at B.O.W or bass pro. I work at a ford dealer and people think because they buy a used honda on a ford lot that has base coverage they can bring it to a ford store and have an engine installed under warranty. Live and learn.

    My mechanic has told me in the past to turn off all your battery switches and of course lay rods down.
  5. Islamorada Boatworks

    If I'm not mistaken they bought the lake and bay molds. Tom Gordon is the owner. Suppose to be top tier boats from what I hear.

    my guess is cracked/delaminated stringer. Check port chine for crack. If your taking on water, your boat is flexing, and your trailer is square you've got structural issues. Sometimes people mistake hull flex for vibration of your bow pushing water away. remember these boats, especially back in the day were cranked out to sell. Every time a guy drove off with one of these things they were laughing at the factory. But on the flip side, hewes is what started the sport of flats fishing, and more people talk about these boats than any other.

  12. New Master Angler???

    Looks like a sweet ride. 26 feet is a hell of a big boat. Bet it will be well over 100k

    Navionics is a traditional chart style chip, everything is labeled nicely and is easy to understand but no where near comparable to FMT as far as navigating. Most markers are gone after Irma, don't rely on them being there. To answer your question, I have used app, its dated, imagery is not clear. Here's a link to a discussion regarding your question. After reading you'll find yourself at you local west marine buying a simrad. http://forums.floridasportsman.com/discussion/250554/choko-s-turn-gps-track/p1

    choko pass is way harder to navigate than rabbit key pass in my personal opinion. Rabbit key pass has one turn where if you miss by 2 or 2 1/2 feet on each side your in the sand- s-turn-which scares a lot of people away. Don't rely on following someone unless you talk to them first. Ive seen first hand 80,000-120,000 dollar bay boats beach them selves in choko pass and rabbit key because they don't know where they are going. If your in a bayfisher you can go through choko pass as well as rabbit on a low tide. On an extreme winter negative low is where you might start worrying about running aground. I would do yourself a favor and invest in a Florida Marine Track chip. Glenn, the owner/inventor has personally run all of his tracks he has on his chip and has all bars/oyster beads marked on chip. You need to be running simrad, lowrance, B/G unit and maybe hummingbird for the chip to work. It will totally change the way you fish the 10k. That chip has put a lot of the learning curve that most people have invested in that area right out the window. The value of that chip is priceless and I'm baffled it isn't a standard feature on all shallow water/ bay boats in the florida region.

    Try calling kenny at outdoor resorts. Impeccable facility with 3 pools and hot tubs. People rent their rv's out at reasonable prices. Most of them have included deeded docks which are all part of the deal. Try everglades city hotel as well, recently remodeled pretty nice place only draw back is no pool and you would have to pull your boat out. A lot of people are afraid of running rabbit key pass as well as chokoloskee pass, you definitely need local knowledge or an FMT chip.
