  1. Factory grab/windshield rail off 2003 2200 but should fit all standard consoles except TE. Guy on here wanted it when I put TTop on so I paid the shop an hour labor ($75) to remove for him. He never came for it so would just like to get what I paid for it. In good shape, pics avail Located in St Aug.
  2. Hull pad?

    Maybe I’m confused as to exactly what a “pad”. The V on my Hewes and new boat run all the way to transom as opposed to my Pathfinder’s bein like this
  3. Hull pad?

    Funny you brought this up as I was just thinking about this due to my new boat. I’ve had 2 Pathfinder’s with a “pad” so to speak and my Lappy Hewes and now Bulls Bay have the V that goes all the way to back (but otherwise very similar to Pathfinder). The Bulls Bay handles much more similar to the Hewes in that it wants to ride “though” chop where my Pathfinder’s rode better more on top of it. Neither is better or worse, just different... Also, not sure if it’s a design feature of a pad, or just a by product of it, but the boats with pads seem lil more stable. I almost never had to use my tabs on Pathfinder when load was unbalanced, but find myself doing more with new boat. -
  4. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    Deck prob isn’t coming off at factory... I looked at a 2200 a few years ago that had a stringer repair that was fixed at factory. Obviously skeptical of the boat’s history, I Called Ray and pulled the records of it and explained to me. When I asked about the cap being pulled. I was told these repairs were done from outside of boat. I was surprised but he said they were better than new when done. The guys who built these know exactly where everything is, I doubt a lot of other shops would have the knowledge of the boat to go at it from outside (maybe I’m wrong I just speculating) so the deck would come out and I bet ultimately cost more.
  5. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    Kinda interesting that they would quote a repair like that without knowing the true issue. It’s a whole different ballgame if it’s a stringer issue vs a gel coat bonding issue. Leads me to believe they think it’s a Stringer issue There is another thread by whichwayisup on here of a stringer repair. Check it out and maybe he can tell you more about process.
  6. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    I don’t think they do non warranty repairs
  7. More opinions requested- scuba tanks, big fish

    Nothing wrong with using a compartment as a fish box, just clean it after. Done it on my Hewes and Pathfinder and not like they stunk or anything. The port rear hatch on both were actually pretty well insulated I assume from the foam used to join the cap to hull Lets see that Cobia!
  8. 2002 2200v deck cooler anchors issue

    I replied to your FB post. I filled mine in. Contact spectrum for a pre mixed epoxy that should match close. A small jar should do them all I think
  9. 2000 MA Repair Thread - Stringer issue

    Sorry your having to deal with this but cool stuff to watch. Sorry if I missed it, but any better idea of the cause of this?
  10. Any suggestions?

    Not much help if you broke everything off but I’ll recommend these for everyone’s tool box for stuff like this anyways. Like I said as long as you can get the slightest bite, these will do wonders. I cant read the numbers on mine anymore but they look to be what channel lock calls their “extractor” pliers.
  11. Any suggestions?

    Can’t tell, is there anything to bite on it at all? I have a pair of channel lock pliers that the teeth are slotted one direction specifically just to remove stuff like this. If you can get a bite, they will do wonders. They have been my saving grace a number of times. I’ll be home in morning and post up the model.
  12. 2002 Yamaha Oil question

    I think the consistent part is the key. That way when it smokes more, smalls or sounds different, fouls plugs...whatever...you atleast don’t have to try and deal with that variable. And exactly why I only used Penzoil premium plus for about 15 years. After doing my own testing and finding it to be much cleaner burning that yamalube and merc stuff and a few others, it’s also available at every Walmart, Advance auto etc and alot of tackle and hardware shops and even a lot convince stores I’ve seen. That way when I forgot to bring that jug on my keys or camping trip I can find it ezpz even on a weekend or something.
  13. Man that *** jason What about some thick rubber “stringers” under tank? It might be flexible enough to bend in to get under it and then epoxy them down and then tank to them? I would be trying to avoid putting foam around an uncoated aluminum tank as much as possible. Seems to be a receipe for bad things happening to tank.
  14. Pretty neat non MBG find

    That’s freakin awesome. Sure looks like the type boat I remember him fishing in walkers cay chronicles way back in the day
  15. Tower on 22’ Path

    Yes. I installed a t top on my 22. The rear legs went to deck but the front to console.
  16. Tower on 22’ Path

    Both my 02 and 03 had diagrams of all the backing plates in the owners manual. Search the ones on here for yours. Or call factory I’m sure that they can email you a copy of your year
  17. 2005 20 Bilge Hatch?

    The Jim Black (can’t remeber my size) is holy grail of Pathfinder hatches. Worth every penny to be able to get both hands in there
  18. Towing a 22 pathfinder

    Agree wit this. If you tow long distance or regularly, you’ll appreciate a full size tow vehicle. You might want to look at tow mirrors. Being so narrow and pathy so wide, your gonna have a hard time seeing around it
  19. T-Top color for Ice Blue Pathfinder

    As mentioned, I have a black t top and just had a boat with a white (fiberglass skin) t tip. I have never noticed the black getting hot but this thread had me thinking I was gonna cook my brain and should wear a foil hat . So I took mine out yesterday so tried something. At 1pm it was 93* and weather channel app said it felt like 101*. I cautiously put my hand up to my black t top and could feel some heat about 2-3 inches away. Tried it a few times and below that, I could feel absolutely nothing. Just as I suspected...No way heat is being transferred that far down to people below.
  20. Looking for a 2000V..

    It’s a 2200TE that identifies as a 2000
  21. New Master Angler???

    I thought Shearwater did. That’s still little more of a bay boat with the recessed deck. And ugly as sin... I was thinking Young was making one too, but maybe not.
  22. New Master Angler???

    The MA has a nice ride and while I’ve never ridden in the 26 but I’m quite confident it’s likely gonna be impressive in comparison. Trying to think if anyone builds anything even close to this ...🤔
  23. New Master Angler???

    I don’t have any need for such a bohemith but I’m excited to see how it turns out. Love seeing the MA line brought outta retirement
