    Repower Pathfinder 2200V-TE

    I repowered my 2005 2200v from a 2006 150 Yamaha to a 2019 200 Suzuki. Run a four blade 21 pitch power tech ofx4. Just completed first 20 hrs and was very impressed. Motor is very quiet and sips fuel. Here in South Texas not a ton of Suzuki dealers but the price was great compared to A new Yamaha. Really performs like a new boat. Oh and probably a 175 would run just about as well with proper prop for a couple grand less. I get 49mph moderately loaded at 5800 rpms which is all I want and I have much better lower end performance hope this helps.bh

    Replacing cooler tie-downs

    Cmorales on my 2005 2200 v had the same problem. There were some threads on this forum about replacement parts but pretty obscure. I ordered tie downs for my front console Engle cooler From Engle and installed them between the existing round inserts. Like yeti ones. Works well.

    Will do. No issues yet but not that many hrs yet..The Suzuki dealer is also the guy I bought my pf from so maybe that will help but the brand does lack higher end shops that service Yamahas....The motor is extremely quiet and efficient. And it literally jumps up on plane. I get about 48mph wot 5800 rpm w a Powertech ofx4 21 which is all I need. Marcus at pt did a great job. Again I would think a 175 Suzuki would cost about 1500 less than the 200....and propped right should have similar numbers. I liked my Yamaha 150 but the difference is night and day. Good luck.

    An addition to your boat tools

    True that. When I was a kid accidentally hooked all three trebles in the back of my brothers head on the back cast while in a school of stripers. My old man pulled out a ball of string and weaved loops around hooks and pulled off the cleat. One yank and all came loose. I was amazed at the time.

    2200v coolers

    Frog foot. Go to the mbg online store for information about Engle coolers for pf boats. Many folks use other brands. A seat cushion really helps. My yeti 65 fits well under leaning post and you can probably measure and go bigger. Bh

    Gold spoon. I repowered my 2005 2200v w a Suzuki 200. It is outstanding. 175 would have likely worked as well. Here in tx the difference between Yamaha and Suzuki was substantial and there were no used units to be found....hutch
