  1. Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    Wow, Thanks for the info! What type of WOT speed are you seeing now?! Also where did you have the work done?!
  2. Dry boat bag or box for important items??

    Thank you for all the Info, It's much appreciated!
  3. Hey Guy's,Just curious as to what type of dry bag or box everyone is using to keep important papers (registration etc.) and cell phones dry, while on the boat. I have an 18.5 Maverick MA, it's a dry boat and I haven't had any problems with my stuff getting wet... yet and I'm just using a gallon ziplock but I feel like I should upgrade to something that will last more long term. Let me know what you guy's use!

  6. Snook

    I Was out yesterday and today south Pine Island Sound and mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, average water temp was 59 and 61 degrees respectively and only saw one dead bonnethead on a flat and a large dead sail cat in a deep canal. I did see a ton of big Snook in groups... but couldn't get a single one to eat the DOA and Gulp shrimp I offered up. I may have had a better chance if I would've had a few nice medium to large live shrimp. All in all a good day on the water and had to stop to catch a couple trout to bend the rod.... Just happy to see our Snook down here still kicking!

    Thank you!
  8. Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    Thanks for the info guys. Are these kits something any Yamaha mechanic would be able to install for me? Also would adding one of these kits put my motor at a greater risk of failure or are they pretty safe to add??
  9. Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    Hey Guys, Has anyone ever heard of or put a Hydro Tec Marine- Phase I Kit on their Yamaha motor? I Stumbled stumbled upon a post on Facebook and the guy was talking about having put one on his Yammi 150 vmax OX66 and his numbers seemed really good! Any info would be appreciated, about reliability, performance, fuel economy, etc... I'm not worried about voiding a motor warranty as my motor is an 01 Yamaha Vmax OX66 with 70 hours. The Kit on Hydro Tec's website is $1,236 and then I'm sure there would be a decent amount of labor to have it installed. If this kit isn't worth it is there anything that can be done to an older carb 2 stroke, to up performance?? Thanks, Vinnie
  10. Seadek install

    Great Job! I have the same boat and have been tossing around the idea of Seadeck. By the way do you have a backrest installed for you bench seat and if so, which backrest did you go with?
  11. HPX Tunnel Hatch Gasket

    Hey guys I have a 2001 MA 18.5 and the gasket for the rod locker has come off. The gasket it's self is in great condition... Can I just glue it back on, and if so what type of adhesive should I use?

  13. How many RPM's??

    Yeah, It really does! Oh yeah, I got tomorrow off too so I'll be back out there bright and early!
  14. How many RPM's??

    Ok Guys, I was on the boat all day and something odd happened this morning while heading over to get bait. I was running up on plane and getting the same numbers I mentioned in my earlier posts, WOT 5100rpm @47 mph (trimmed and aired out) then I got 5200rpm for a little bit... But the crazy part happened when I was backing off the throttle coming up to the bridge, at about 30mph it felt kinda like the boat jumped forward and released or something. Idk know what it was but I decided to hold off on getting bait and ran the boat WOT and immediately got up to 5700rpm and 54mph with just me and about a half tank of gas!! I was easily able to get those numbers the rest of the day. Not really sure If a fuel filter or something was clogged and became clear... But I'm extremely happy! Oh and the morning top water Snook bite was pretty solid (caught the very tail end of the incoming tide) with 3 landed and about 6 blowups. Once the tide turned around I went to the causeway and filled the well up with perfect size Whitebait with a few Threadfins mixed in and caught 5 or 6 more Snook before heading back to the dock.
