  1. Trolling motor question

    Lithium batteries are highly priced but it is $ well spent. A 24 volt battery only weighs 30LBS! Your boat will drive faster, float skinnier, plane faster, pole easier, and get better gas mileage.
  2. Trolling motor question

    About $2500 for battery and charger Lithium pros
  3. I seriously LOVE my Maverick BUT...

    I wish I could have gotten the 35 - my dealer said it was no longer available!! Unfortunately many tournaments do not allow you to carry extra fuel aboard the boat
  4. I seriously LOVE my Maverick BUT...

    Hey! I think a very light gray would of helped to hide the dirt a little more than the white but I would have aslo considered making it ice blue like the rest of the boat for that fully custom feel!
  5. I seriously LOVE my Maverick BUT...

    EPA stuff aside the fact of the matter is the design ***, if the design worked before EPA regs and now does not then its time for a refresh. I have seen other threads on this and we should not have to level our trailers, place starboard under the fill hose, stand on the starboard side while filling in the water, or use a 5 gallon canister to fill the last 3 to 4 gallons on a boat this price. Some people may not care but when your making long runs at WOT in a tournament those last 3 gallons are critical!! Are you certain that yours actually fills to completion? A 29 gallon tank that fills completely to 29 gallons? Mine will fill to around 24 - 26 gallons before I have to top off with a portable can. I would challenge you to fill your boat until the pump clicks off and then continue to fill with a portable can and see how much more it takes. ALL in ALL I love my boat, if purchasing a new boat tomorrow I would buy the exact same rig ( except I would shell out for colored non skid).
  6. I seriously LOVE my Maverick BUT...

    Y'all have got to change the fuel fill location on this boat. I have a 2016 hpxv and I love everything about the boat besides the gunnel rod holders and the fuel fill. It is seriously annoying that I cannot fill my fuel tank all the way without slowly topping it off with a 5 gallon portable can! Please move the fill to the middle of the deck and have the gas poor directly into the tank underneath rather then having it run horizontally/uphill for 2 feet like it does now. Please Maverick listen!! #rantover
  7. Trolling motor question

    Lithium pros - single battery for your 24v This is what I run and it is the jam
  8. Trolling motor question

    Just say no to 12v
  9. Heading over to steinhatchee

    I like fishing shallow for redfish and big trout, throw mirrordines and topwater. Not as many numbers here but the trout are bigger and redfish are always fun!
  10. My new Maverick!

    Nice rig! I would be interested in knowing the performance numbers with that merc!
  11. What did you do to your boat today?

    Gotta love Oyster Bay Chickee
  12. Hey guys...

  13. Console Rod Holders

    I know this is not answering your question but you may consider just installing rod holders on one side of your console. I did this and am happy I did. This way there is always one side of the console that passengers can safely walk back and forth by and not worry about snagging any hooks or breaking any rods. Also my passenger always sits on this side so that when grabbing the handle on the console their wrist is not right next to hooks. As far as brand I have really liked the ones installed from the factory. If I were you I would consider having some made by a local shop that builds towers and platforms.
  14. Xi5 motor guide or power pole????

    Depends on fishing style. For me a powerpole would be the choice.
  15. Release Well?

    Does yours have a drain built in already?
