  1. Best Fluorocarbon Knot?

    I lost a monster red the other night right at sunset. It had to be 15+ lbs and he hit a 5" white swimming shad Gulp on a red head 1/4" jig head. He made 3 thrilling runs and I was about to turn my trolling motor around to chase him, thinking he might spool me. Then he made one last run and my line went limp. Disgusted, I reeled my line in and noticed the jig head had actually come untied from the 20# fluorocarbon leader I was using. I thought I'd tied the jig on well with an improved Clinch Knot but obviously not. What does the group think is the best knot to use when tieing heavier fluorocarbon line?
  2. Hatch D-shaped Adhesive Insulation

    And I'd prefer white (like exists now) vs. black if that's possible.
  3. I have to replace all of my old adhesive "D-shaped" hatch insulation. I need about 50' in total. And it can't be thicker than about 3/8". Does anyone know of a good source for this stuff? I don't see it at West Marine or Boater's Discount. Thanks for any help!
  4. Console Seat Cushion Replacement

    Yeah...just got up from the floor after getting my quote...$200 for just the bottom cushion! CRAP!!
  5. Well shoot...my bottom console seat cushion was unsnapped and blew out of the boat on the way home last weekend. My boat is a 2008 18' Hewes Redfisher. What's the best way to replace...is it something to get from MBG or should I just find a local vinyl trim shop to fabricate one for me? Thanks for your thoughts
  6. PFD Re-arming cartridge

    I have a nice Type II model from Cabela's that cost $119.00.
  7. PFD Re-arming cartridge

    Just got a new PFD vest with the auto-inflate CO2 cartridge. Since I've never had or used one of these devices before...how many times will it inflate before I have to "re-arm?" I hope it's not "1 and done" like my bear spray! Thanks for any input
  8. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Where can you buy the Amsoil synthetic?
  9. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    BTW... 150hp
  10. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Hey a quick question, what do you think is the best oil to use with a 2008 Yamaha two-stroke Vmax? It would seem Yamalubewould be the best but some people swear by Mercury lubes. Thx
  11. Sell or trade 2008 150hp Yamaha Vmax?

    I have decided to keep the 150hp Yamaha. Thx for your interest.
  12. Best Wire Gauge Size

    Great, thanks.
  13. Best Wire Gauge Size

    What’s a good, all around wire gauge to use for trim tabs, bilge pumps, etc? I have lots of corrosion in my bilge wiring and need to slowly start replacing. Thx
  14. Porpoising Redfisher

    I guess since I’ve dialed the Solas in for now, I’ll keep it. I’ll go Powertech OFX when I have the need. Thx

    Thanks to Marcus and ALL those who chimed in. Feels like family!
