  1. Boca Grande Area Red Tide Question

    This is great news!
  2. Replace motor or whole rig??

    Polli, that is good to know. I know I'll face a repower one of these days and a 4-stroke would be a consideration.
  3. Replace motor or whole rig??

    You should be able to find a decent V6 2-stroke for less than $5000. The LT20 is a cool hull; with decent power I bet you would love it. JMO.
  4. Repowering LT18?

    Thanks, everyone!
  5. Repowering LT18?

    Hi guys, I am considering repowering my 2000 LT18. I have a great Yamaha 130 (which will most likely end up on a Lapstrake RF18) and am considering a VMax 150 2002 carbed. I would love a better holeshot and top end at WOT when needed. Does anybody have experience with this changeover or does anybody have a period LT18 or RF18 with a carbed V6 150? ? I realize I'll gain some weight in the stern. I wonder how much my fuel usage will increase with the V6. All comments welcomed.
  6. Best Fluorocarbon Knot?

    Perfection loop. It's basically a bowline. Simple to tie, extremely strong.
  7. 2000 Pathfinder 2200-Model?

    Didn't they also release the 2200 T?
  8. Fishing Guide for Papagayo, Costa Rica

    Bueller, Anyone??
  9. Can anyone recommend a fishing guide in the Papagayo area of Costa Rica? I have a great client who is headed there with his wife and wants to go fishing.
  10. Spinning rod suggestion?

    We use St. Croix Avid series. Very light and powerful
  11. Toxic Lake: The Untold Story of Lake Okeechobee

    Good reporting. Sickening story.
  12. Probably a smart move.
  13. Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Gosh, I must be a redneck. I use SuperTech 2-stroke oil from Wally World. It's TC-W3 certified and produced by Amalie. Works great for me, at $12.99 a gallon.
  14. Any luck making this trade?
  15. Stereo Systems for MA17

    Headphones for you! I would rather hear my 2-stroke sing to me.
