    Does SeaDek hold moisture underneath ?

    Jorge, direct quote from the Seadek site SeaDek is a nonabsorbent, closed cell PE/EVA blended material specifically formulated for marine applications.

    trim tabs required?? Light Tackle 20 200 SHO

    It's a personal preference but I would add the position indicator switch to know what position the tabs are at, looks like the new Lenco Switch did away with the control box

    I'll second the tabs in a chop to make the bow work & leveling out

    Delacroix Scouting Trip

    Fished North Lake Lery all the way to Oak River, back tracked the twin pipeline, water heavily stained SE wind getting water levels back up after the NW blow we had, couple of slot reds in the box for Reds on the half shell and a couple of smaller guys sent on there way, pulled a couple of drifts across the lower bays no results on trout, no birds diving, loads of Teal and Grays still in the marsh and gators popping up in there spring time fashion, saw Capt Jack at Sweetwater and the theme of the day was reds, no trout hit the dock. Clean up time Fish Pictures later today

    2300 HPS 1 Year later

    Update: Opened up the inspection cover and removed the front speaker to inspect the vent line hose, vent fitting and screen, no blockage noted, ran a 12" tie wrap down full length and twisted around no cutting or resistance noted, screen clean, blow back from the vent fitting to the tank and there is a reasonable return rate from the tank fill, no kinks in the vent hose as far as I can reach so it's back to the carbon canister. FYI front speaker was the easiest port to allow inspection.

    25' Hybrid with T Top -Y300

    Read the post by Tall Tails 2500 1 year later he has some prop info listed in the report
  9. Kept a Stratos SP2100 from 1997 to 2018, 1 repower with E-Tech 175 in 2007, all total till I sold the boat I 2018 for 11,500 had over 43,000 invested to what I wanted and keeping up to date, I finally decided to update to a new boat, Old boat had many great memories with family, friends etc. especially my Dad which made the decision hard to move on to a new boat. A young guy purchased the boat and was very happy to get his hands on it. If the boat has good bones and it sounds like you have updated a number of items a repower may very well be the answer to greatly improve the reliability. Some classics are just meant to live on! Just for grins I added the spread sheet with updates and dates so my ROCE on this one wasn't good. LOL Stratos SP 2100 Upgrades and dates performed.xlsx

    Fin, kind of expected the electrical component issues with the boat just sitting for the amount of time it did, I never figured out why it didn't move faster than it did but I couldn't pass it up, as long as all of the vendors stand behind what's installed I'm good and so far so good no other gremlins have shown up, In my past life when I worked I'd seen it before procuring long lead time items that sit waiting for the projects to kick off and having a certain mortality rate in PLC's, Transmitters ect.

    2300 HPS 1 Year later

    After reading Tall Tails post on the 2500 HPS I thought it provided great information 1 year down the road, and I'll add the 2300 1 year down the road, Thanks TT 2016 2300 HPS SHO 250, PP 10' Blade ( Purchased 2018 Non Current New Boat) Shopped between 3 boats 2400TRS, 2500 HPS and This Boat all PF Products 2300 I believed would be easier to manage on Solo Trips. Pre Purchase contacts with Pathfinder on Information for the 3 I considered was great they took the time to answer all questions, Tim's Marine was great to work with all items repaired by Troy with Tim's Marine Within the first 10 Hrs of operation some of the Vendor items failed which I kind of expected doe to the length of time not being energized/ operated, it is worth stating all of the vendors warranted the products as new even though it was 2 years down the road Vendor Items installed at factory Power Pole: Replaced Hyd Motor assembly, Blue Tooth COMM's issue, corrosion noted in upper area of control unit Airman B 70 Transducer: Resealed refilled back in service cover incorrectly sealed Center Bait Well Switch: Replaced DOA Pathfinder Center Console with cooler seat and cushion: Buttons on the cooler cushion chipped the gelcoat, appears this area needs a small piece of sea deck to protect the console from chipping. JMO Fuel Issue: Like TT the boat has a fueling issue while fueling up but he shed some light of what he found and I'll be investigating the Vent Tube for blockage, you can spoon feed the boat to get closer to the rated capacity Fuel Filter Bracket: Mastic failed installed aluminum bracket Ameratrail: Trailer Jack Non Swivel: Jack wheel impacts ground during launch: elevated ball and corrected issue should have caught this and had a swivel jack installed Rear Frame Cross Member: Impacts ground during launch and pulling up certain inclines not bad but obvious scraping on the underside of the frame tube, I believe the trailer should be elevated 3/4 to 1" more between axels and main frame to eliminate this, JMO Removed center running lights and installed a roller for Transom Saver for motor support, Installed taller Guide Poles with LED Markers to see where the trailer is a during late night pickups and early morning launches. Yamaha: SHO 250 No Issues, performance pretty much matched the report they advertise, not as many hours as TT coming up on the first service Stagnation Gremlins for the 24 month lay up have ended with the exception of the Fuel issue which I'll be looking into The Good Stuff as TT put it No bait well issues as TT encountered but I'm not a big chum guy live shrimp and minnows survive till they are eaten LOL, the boat drains work very well, wide gunnels are walkable when running around with large reds or drum, storage capacity as advertised did swallow the menagerie of tackle and rods as well as other items. Dry ride in a chop hull set up works very well, a bit hard to steer but I believe the Prop Dance Tread should help, 12" draft listed but I've had it a bit skinner in the 10" range I won't go any shallower this was a light boat exercise. Boat fishes 3 comfortable, lay out works very well fit and finish shows and it's been commented on by several other fisherman/ boaters. No spider cracks or delamination noted, I'm very pleased with the step hull design, look forward to the 24 month update One addition: While looking at the boats the only under deck build thread I could find was on the Hull Truth, does MBG keeps videos of under the deck builds? but I found it very helpful
