  1. What did you do to your boat today?

    Once I look at it, most probably the 04. Sweet boat with impeccable documentation. Test driving it Friday.
  2. What did you do to your boat today?

    I finished my “soon to be purchased” boat pad! Going this Friday to look at “the one”!
  3. Learn from my mistakes - Insurance Learnings

    So who does Surveys and what is the usual cost? Is it a step-by-step inspection certified? Similar to a house inspection prior to purchase? **News Flash** I did some research...just like a home inspector but for boats!

    Thank you Gents, my "gut instinct" is tell me the same. I'll keep everyone posted!
  5. 2004 vs 2007 rf18 narrowing my search

    I haven't decided YET, but I'm happily finding myself in a good pickle. Info is hard to find, any major differences in the two hulls? Any updates that may have occurred after 2004 that would push the 2007 ahead. Both have Yamaha 115 (4) and both are in the same ballpark range of price. 04 has 275 hours and the 07 560 hours. Of the two boats, the 04 has better documentation (as of today)...that should change. Also seems babied more. 07 more "used" as in fished! (what I'm going to be doing). Any help or suggestions/comments greatly appreciated.
  6. Trolling Motor foot pedal to IPilot/GPS? Hard to learn?

    So you use a foot control in salt? No issues? I would rather use foot controls everywhere.

    Thanks Linesider, I heard you can't go backwards with the Ipilot? Is that true or is someone just pulling my leg?

    Oh I know, sadly my budget can’t cover my desires!

    I wish I had more greenbacks, ***! Beautiful boat!

    Thanks, I've fished with folks that couldn't figure out the closed end of a paperbag. Ditto with electronics.

    I forgot, you're still under the DOT regulations for advancement. All joking aside, I'll welcome you to the "Goat Locker".

    Yeah, as a Yeoman I'd state it may be a longshot. We didn't promote med board folks. We also required additional military obligation (36 months) for Chief. No frocking either. Sorry Boats.

    Ditto! Tells me it must be gone already. Fingers crossed. I lived less than a mile away from it for 12 years.
