  1. How are you cleaning up wiring 1997 Bayfisher

    The acccess is typically horrible for flats boats cause the consoles are small the rear bulkhead doesn’t even allow you to lay on your back. You have to pick a side, and everytime you need to change sides, we’ll we alll know... It almost warrants a move up to a Pathfinder for this reason alone. Even if it doesn’t for your fishing style ha. I could lay out flat under leaning post or even get in the console. Once I got in, I could sit upright in there and do work. Then all I needed was someone to pass me tools and beer

    This thing was/is bad. Port St Joe is one of my favorite lil Florida towns and I think got some of the worst of it. Still going strong too - wonder when is last time Southwest GA dealt with a Cat 3 hurricane?
  3. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    I have a naive question. If it’s simply a computer tune why don’t manufacturers do this from the get go? Surely they have the ability to or even buy the programming. Then they could market a 320hp motor that’s the size and weight as 200 hp? I messed around with some of the tuning on my diesel truck as did a lot of my buddies. Maybe just coincidence, but it always seemed the wilder the tune, the more issues that truck had...
  4. Florance

    Dam it guys. Hopefully all yall came out as well as can given circumstances if y’all need any advice with remediation or insurance, just ask. I’m a pseudo professional foooder now
  5. Never Forget

    Yes thank you. It’s my understanding that the water supply for that whole incident was supplied by FDNY fire boats but I never knew of civilian efforts. It doesn’t surprise me. A lot of good came out in people that day. I still remember watching it happen live and a reporter grabbing a group of construction workers going the opposite direction of everyone else. She asked him what they were doing. His reply was there were a lot of people in trouble and they were going to help. I’ve never seen it again in allbthe footage, but will never forget it. 🇺🇸
  6. Horrible Boating Accident

    Scary stuff. My 2 y/o son is obsessed with all the switches, lights - and throttle - on the console.
  7. Cleaning/Waxing

    Toilet bowl cleaner will take it right off. Wet, or even better yet, cover trailer.
  8. F150 owners keep and eye on your balancer

    I’ve heard such good about these motors minus this issue. When I was looking used recently I never could find a definitive answer of when it was no longer an issue. Best I could kinda figure from reading online was ‘08... guess that was wrong. Good catch
  9. Some of you might remember my renovation thread when we bought our house in St Augustine. Soon after the renovation we flooded from Matthew. We then spent last year renovating again only to flood from Irma. Needless to say we are over it. We just got permit and settled on company to lift the house so that hopefully this won’t be an issue anymore. Should start going up in a couple weeks but you can prob imagine there’s quite a bit to it. Some I’ve alteady started, some still needs to happen before and after, if we cheer hard enough maybe we can get @triplec to strap on his tool belt and help 😊. I’m trying to figure out a way to document this whole process and figured I’d see if there was any interest on here for folks to follow it since it’s not everyday you see this thing happen. Well, except in my neighborhood 🙄 Here she is alll done about two weeks prior to Irma 😞
  10. Updated *Its UP* Little blue house that could

    Inside changed very little. Had to redo the back room floor, all new bathroom in that room and new laundry room.
  11. Updated *Its UP* Little blue house that could

    Best new seat in the house, or under it actually. Leaving it as open as possible has really paid off tons of shade with natural light and any breeze really gets sucked right through. one side is an outdoor living room of sorts and I will make the other side into gates so we can park under or actually drive right into garage
  12. Updated *Its UP* Little blue house that could

    Didn’t realize it’s been so long since I updated this. I keep in touch off this forum with a lot of the guys that still seemed interested but I wanted to give this a little closure. We lost our temporary living situation first of May so have been back in since then. Still had a lot of punch list stuff and landscaping to do I’ve been working on since but in reality it’s all but DONE. We have new elevation of 16.7 feet above sea level, reduced our flood insurance by about $1500 a year and officially got our CO today. There’s a little piece of mind as well. Hope you enjoy the finished product
  13. So You Think Your Day Was Bad

    Sick. Bet it’s easier to deal with than getting it stolen tho...

    Lap, my buddy has the identical boat as mine without TTop that hasn’t hit market yet. 2003 w 150vmax in Stuart and I think will be in his price range He really needs to check this one out, then good ones in that price range go quick. Ill PM his number to ya
  15. Expired Flares

    Take em to the fire station and they will chase the rookies around with them People do bring them by the fire station all the time and we will take them for training burns and stuff. But I always tell people the same thing I tell them with expired extinguishers - take them and practice with them so when TSHTF you know how they work and aren’t trying to figure it out then....

    This thread inspired me to start reading A Land Remembered
  17. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Makes perfect business sense My buddy was Yamaha mech turned guide so helped with my motors on occasion for beers but no need to push anything on me. Said he didn’t favor any oil but swore by ringfree. Said if I could see the internals of the ones that used it vs didn’t I’d be sold too. I just took his word for it and use it even now in my merc 4s. Cheap enough off amazon.
  18. Opinion on the v max HDPI

    Had a 150 hpdi vmax on my 22. Loved mine. Never an issue other than water in fuel which obviously wasn’t motors fault Everyone’s Initial thoughts (including mine) were it was gonna be underpowered on a 22...until they rode in it. Strong motor.
  19. I have a cushion for rear deck of my 2200. Previous owner had it made and it goes all way across rear deck. It was off the boat when it was stolen. Cushion is in decent shape, just needs a good cleaning. If anyone wants it, come get it... it’s in St Augustine
  20. FS 2000v

    Boy would it. My last 2200 was a TN boat - almost exclusively freshwater and it definitely makes a difference in a boat of this vintage. Pretty color too
  21. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    If you watch the holiday weekend sales at Advanced auto you can get Penzoil premiem plus for very close to that. I just buy few gallons at a time each year.
  22. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Never used anything but Penzoil Premium Plus in last 12 years after doing some of my own testing. Less smoke, cleaner plugs and can be found anywhere way cheaper than Yamalube. Yamalube fouled my yam 90 plugs horrible so it prompted me to try something else. When I bought Pathy, I pumped my oil tank out and literally gave a few gals of Yamalube away that came with it.
  23. Stereo Systems for MA17

    Fair warning: I am not an audio guy. Quite the opposite actually, I almost despise loud music especially on the water. Unless you are really gonna go big and especially since you don’t have any existing holes, wires etc to start with, you owe it to yourself to check out some of the Bluetooth speakers. No install, no holes, no repair...you really have nothing to lose, if it’s not enough use it at the beach or on the sandbar. my current boat came with a fusion radio with fusion speakers, and my Bluetooth speaker I had on my Pathy sounded better and was as loud if not louder. This one is waterproof and has a shock cord to wrap around things like grab rails, t tops and stuff so it’s not rolling around. https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Bluetooth-Speaker-Waterproof-Shockproof/dp/B00YARCGHO?th=1&psc=1
  24. Fuel Sending unit / Anti Siphon Valve

    It came unscrewed right and didn’t break? It kinda looks like the threads I circled are still in, but ( atleast in this one) doesn’t seem like you’d be able to get to pick up tube Mine came right out. I had a filter screen like pictured, so maybe you just need to wiggle it through
