  1. Hatch changed color - Question

    Good point. Ill have to try your suggestion. Thanks!
  2. Hatch changed color - Question

    This is kinda weird but here's what happened. So I have a leak at my Power Pole pump which is mounted inside my hatch under my driver seat. Cleaned whole boat 2 weeks ago and used some degreaser inside the hatch with a sponge. No problem. Cleaned it all up and hatch was as clean as its been in years. Put boat away with lid closed. Open lid about a week later and notice more fluid had leaked out - but here's the weird part. The hatch floor turned a tan color. Is that from some fume the newly leaked fluid gives off? Haven't pulled it out of garage yet to clean but it appears it should come off with a little elbow grease. Any thoughts on what might have caused this. Its been leaking but usually I leave all hatches open. Just happened to leave it closed for about a week after cleaning it. You can see the little pool of fluid from the PP. Its the originial white under the spill spot. Hmmmm....never seen this one before.

    The wide gunnels are where I do my running from front to back. Many of my catches require no running......lolol.
  5. I shined mine a little in under 10 hours on the new motor. It runs better that way. LOL

    Forgot to mention that the latch gets removed and the hole where it was is hidden under the driver seat mount. One of these clips at each end of the hatch lid are great for securing it shut.

    I have an 03 RF21 without the tilt up seat as well. Had 3 Tempress seats done when I bought it. Driver seat is mounted just slightly forward of the other 2. Spin them around backwards when towing to keep em from flipping up. Called "low back" seats if I recall. Works fantastic!

  9. Hewes RF 21 Trolling Motor size??

    I have an 80 with 54". Works great.
  10. Time to Re-power

    Lol. Due to boat traffic couldn't go all the way but got it to 60mph at one point in a very short stretch. Lots of reserve power from 40 mph up. Gulf should be nice and calm this weekend so Ill hopefully have a chance to boot it. So far its fantastic. Have my old OFX4 blade 21 pitch on it currently. Thats probably the right size and pitch. Hole shot is great. Sorry should have better info after the weekend.
  11. Time to Re-power

    Im using the OFX 4 blade 21 that came off my HPDI 200. Seems to work well at least in the first 3 hours. Will be running it all the way up this weekend and then should have a better idea if thats the right size or not.

  14. Time to Re-power

    Hey Jamie. I think with the 4 blade I was getting about the same with the 2.6 200 hp vmax. I recall once running it by myself, wide open with not much fuel and empty live wells etc and may have gotten 56 but that was it and everything trimmed to the max etc. just to see how fast I could go. Never really did that again. Seems like 53 was about max usually.
  15. Time to Re-power

    Put about 3 hours of break in time on new motor over the past weekend. Wow. Didn't run it all the way up of course but the motor is super quiet, really strong and runs amazing. More than enough power to push my RF 21 along easily. Hole shot is fantastic. Im trying it out with my old 4 blade Powertech prop and it seems to be running well with the 21 pitch. I haven't run it all the way up to see what the rpms top out at but will eventually of course. So far its fantastic.
