    WTT/WTS Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman 20

    Always liked these. Cool design. Bet it feels a lot bigger than it is with the 3 piece construction. Good luck 👍🏽

    Ride Quality Comparison: Hewes vs. Maverick

    I agree kinda a odd comparison. If you want to pole, focus on the HPX, if you want best ride focus on the Mav, if you want a combination of the two focus on the Hewes I haven’t been on all of those but owned a 16 Lappy for 10 years and will tell you it’s a very underrated ride. Since you asked about it, newer model has nothing on it ride wise, but does seem noticeably more stable to me.

    Not really sure how to ask this seriously, but why all the hate for Dicks?

    Improved Cheese Grater

    Makes sense and also makes sense why the factory screws might penetrate into the bilge as well when the cheese graters are “upgraded”

    Improved Cheese Grater

    A word of caution before you guys start messing with these things too much - there is no additional backing these things are screwed into, it’s simply the thickness of the hull. Horrible design that had me taking on a surprising amount of water one day offshore in gulf. All the 5200 in west marine couldn’t stop it as holes were wallowed out and had some cracking. Bigger screws didn’t bite well enough in most holes...I ended up cleaning it all off and drilling them out and filling holes and areas around them with epoxy and using just 1/2” screws to hold new plate on. Honestly, I have no idea if it actually worked as boat was stolen soon after. Here is pic of mine leaking through holes when I fillled bilge to find where it was coming from. 3 of 6 were leaking good. This was after I replaced the original cracked plate with MBC made stainless one with the factory screws and a good bead of 5200. I think the area that it’s screwed into is just too thin (should have a backing strip behind it but doesn’t ) so when you start messing with these screws, your wallowing the holes out enough to open up a can of worms

    Pathfinder 2400 fuel tank replacement

    It’s select boats. Some of the Mavericks and 2400’s specifically. And the exact reason I don’t own a 2400 unfortunately. Tons of reading on Facebook about the unprotected alum tanks corroding and failing

    Power Washing

    I too use a lil Ryobi and love the Lil thing (low profile one so it doesn’t tip over like all the tell electric ones) Cleans well but doesn’t do any damage but I would think that process does remove wax. Use mine mostly on topside for nooks and crevices which I don’t “wax” but once a year. Only really use wash n wax on top otherwise. Also works well for removing the Lil white barnacles you get from a few days in water, of course you’d wanna wax after that anyways

    Insurance Renewal Question?

    Let us know what you find. I’m about to start reviewing all my stuff too. I have progressive and don’t remember seeing that. Was overall happy with them when my boat got stolen this year, but it was an agreed upon value on a boat that got stolen and never came back ...not much wiggle room for them really. Check was cut in 30 days without much hastlebb Mine went up pretty good with an additional 10k in value on new boat and the recent theft I’m sure weighing in on that too

    Oyster Rash

    FYI that cheese grater situation is bad news 2 of those 6 holes on mine letting water (way more than one would think) into bilge with the screws in cause there is no backing to screw into....Just the bilge. Horrible design. Guess someone from factory used too long of screws. I ended up having to grind em out some and pack full with marine Tex and using shorter screws. I honestly don’t even know if it actually stopped leak cause boat was stolen after I fixed it. Jokes on them.... cause I had bilge pump fuses pullled while I fillled it up looking for the leak.

    How are you cleaning up wiring 1997 Bayfisher

    Haha I spent ALOT of time under that console...that’s your console to get it now. You can do it!

    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?

    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...

    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. 🇺🇸

    Horrible Boating Accident

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

    Toilet bowl cleaner will take it right off. Wet, or even better yet, cover trailer.

    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
  21. 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 😞

    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.

    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

    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
