    Boat is home! Went up to a 22p Bravo 1 with extra cupping and its running 66 mph with 2 passengers, Full tank of fuel, & no gear/cooler. Will finish up the rest of the repairs next year after my bank account has had time to recover.

    The tank will be replaced when it goes back in the shop next year along with the deck & stringers. Yes, Thats Awlgrip. Trailers done-

    Sorry for lack of updates- The Transom is done & we are going to hold off on the deck until next year. Glass guy said it should be fine just don't bring any heifers on the boat.

    Here is a picture of the putty that he chiseled off the top of the transom and a few others- The crazy thing is after he took off the putty there was only 7/8" of fiberglass above the Holes to mount the motor. Seems like a design flaw and he is going to build the glass up and possibly drop down the motor another 1" so its more into the "meat" of the Transom.

    Here is some of the issues- 1: The Stringers are good, but the "Puddy"/Epoxy Maverick used to bond the deck & hull has started to fail. The fix is to cut the deck out & build up the stringers so the deck sits right on top of them instead of using 1" of "Puddy". I was told this by a few different Shops that have worked on quite a few Maverick/Pathfinder- They said this is the norm for MBC boats & thats why you see so many with cracks on the deck. 2: The Top of the transom is starting to separate because the Epoxy is failing there as well, kickers are fine but The top needs to be cut away & glassed over & tied into the boat. 3: New Gas Tank 4: Redo the deck & fix all the hatches, replace hardware where needed- The last guy broke off a ton of screws when he removed the hatches & just left most of the hinges with one or two screws. Here is a picture of some of the "puddy" i am talking about.

    This boat is becoming a major headache.. I'm tempted to sell it & buy something else after getting it fixed. Back in the shop she goes, Probably looking at another $9k to get her right, got a few quotes for the repairs and they ranged from $5,000 to $12,000.

    Here is a short video of me running today- Cruising around 40, Got on it a little bit at the end. This Motor/Prop combo impresses me every time I take it out, Pretty much a 100:1 rpm/mph ratio from once I get on plane all the way to the rev limiter. https://youtu.be/0_634o2wR28
  13. Opted for the UPS promo 3-5 day shipping for $9, was at my door in 2 days. Got it mounted tonight, Trying it out tomorrow- My skeg will thank me I'm sure
  14. I took the bait, bought it.. Should be here in a few days
  15. Whats the deal? Seems really cheap- https://www.mygreenoutdoors.com/minn-kota-riptide-ulterra-80-ip-w-i-pilot-no-foot-pedal-24v-80lb-60-1358951/
