    Mirage bow light

    Maybe this http://www.livorsi.com/pdf/LED Lighting.pdf Or a rub rail mounts on the bow https://www.ebay.com/i/372945253527?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=372945253527&targetid=876896754469&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9011880&poi=&campaignid=9418895027&mkgroupid=98144267880&rlsatarget=aud-412677883135:pla-876896754469&abcId=1141016&merchantid=136054291&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4_qpi9Hm5wIVTj0MCh27AQO1EAsYAiABEgKcbPD_BwE

    Rust Remover

    I feel it’s just a matter of time. Salt water is not kind. Get a group of flats boats together and just about every owner can point out one of those pesky brown spots and the related screw doing it or tell you the best place locally to by replacements.

    Rust Remover

    Eventually you may want to just replace those screws, as the rust will come back

    Rust Remover

    Bar keepers friend. Put a little on a brush (like a round dish brush or a toothbrush) with a little water, swirl it into a thin paste over the area lightly (pressure is not needed) you can let it sit for a couple of minutes or rinse and repeat if necessary

    Egret is killing it!

    I had a neighbor with a Egret 18’/115hp yaymha that I would just salivate every time I drove by it (and cry a little as it never seemed to leave the dock). Another neighbor now has the boat and he’s says the exact same thing about my 18/115 hp Yamaha Hewes... funny how that works out.

    Found in bilge RF18

    Can you check your bow eye? Do you have a lifting eye as well or cleat on topside on the front of the bow? May need to use camera on your phone to reach up in front and take a few pics.

    Too darned quiet

    I believe we’re out here, it’s just that some of us neebees are more readers than general posters.

    Sea Star Hydraulic hose replacement

    No responses? I did a replacement on a Grady some yrs back with the same issue. I followed the general path with a tape measure and added an extra foot. I was able to go online a purchase quality lines at a reasonable price (and I had. No local option at the time). You can hook the old to new and pull through. I had a runner line already in place and used it, but there were some places were it required a helpful hand to pull back when the line was hung up and slowly moving back and forth I was able to make it through. If your boat will be down for sometime, you can also disconnect one, tie a runner line to it and pull it through - measure and purchase for replacement.

    console cover

    Taylor made has a small medium and large version depending on what you need. There is also a t top model. For a basic version I picked one up from Hodges marine. Have had one for about 18 months and it’s holding up well to FL sun.
