  1. Oyster Rash

    The bottom looks nasty but as you said it’s only gel coat. If you put the scratches there by the way you fish I would ride it. No need to make it pretty to beat it up again.
  2. Battery and disconnect question

    Yes you can pull 12 volts off a pack of trolling motor batteries. Pretty simple just connect to positive and negative of one battery.
  3. Battery and disconnect question

    I would think the house battery should be at least a dual purpose battery. I have two dual purpose agm’s for starting and house. I have done upgrades to my system as it pertains to switches and charging. First was to change the battery switch away from the old 1/2 or all type switch. I installed a blue sea switch with ACR switch. Now the battery switch is off or on. The starting and house battery are separate but both charge from the motor. The ACR is a relay that shuts the starting battery out when voltage falls and will not open until it senses charging voltage coming from the motor and will charge the house battery back up. my trolling motor batteries are charged only by a onboard charger plugged to 110 while at the dock. This charger is also hooked to the starting and house battery’s to keep them topped off while not in use. That was a long read I know it took me a while to figure it all out. Hope that helped and I’m sure others have ideas too.
  4. How are you cleaning up wiring 1997 Bayfisher

    Ever hear the story of the guy who got stuck in the front hatch of his pathfinder? I was looking to get my trolling motor wires from the console forward. Stuck my head in and thought if I put my shoulders in I could have a good look around. Well I did then realized ther was no way to push myself up and out of the anchor locker. Thankfully my 9 year old was with me and called family for help.. my brother in law had to get my legs up and lift me straight up and out. Yes it gets brought up a few times a year for a laugh.
  5. Ameritrail Trailer prices

  6. Older hull recommendations for Tampa Bay

    Nice looking rig for sure
  7. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    So am I to understand the Nizpro tune is all or nothing? The rated horsepower for my 2200 is 250. So I would be at over 50 hp over the rated horse power rating. This does not concern me as far as running the boat. My concern would come when I sell the boat. What type of liability would always be hanging out if I tuned the motor to 300 hp.
  8. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    i Can see this thread is going to cost me money. More real world numbers on the type boats we run than I have seen before. My 200 SHO on a 2200 TRS is almost apples to apples with what they tested.
  9. THIS is a sunrise

    Boose cruse perfect right there
  10. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Hp and emissions are controlled through ecm... locked down and sold as such
  11. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Brad thanks for all the info on tunes. I find it very helpful
  12. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Regulations on all sides. First boat company’s can not allow 300hp on small 20 foot boats so they have to have less horse power motors. EPA also regulates how many of each hp unit they sell. When I say regulates I do not mean they tell them how many they can sell. Once the manufacture reports out on how many of each were produced they can’t be altered by Yamaha. One can not walk into his Yamaha parts guy and buy a 300 ecm to put on his 200 hp motor.
  13. New 22 TRS on order... few questions

    Very nicely done! Pathfinder logo is pretty lame for sure.
