    Scallop report???

    Heard the same from a buddy who took his family to Homosassa. Thin pickings.

    MA 17' 2002 hatch seal

    I replaced all of mine a few years ago and it made a world of difference. It comes with adhesive so you just pull off the tape and press down. Only thing you may want to do is very lightly sand/scuff the area where the old seals were. pf

    Surprise

    Couldn't get our limit of gags on opening day but got couldn't get away from the ARS. About 75 ft. Captain ordered all of them back to the sea. (I researched it later and the rule said only "federally permitted vessels" or something of that sort could take). The one I'm holding in the pic is actually one of the smaller fish caught. A trip about a week before my buddy landed this nice blackfin tuna. That was another slowish day. Mostly grunts and a few red grouper. pf

    Surprise

    Nice Troy. I went offshore with some friends about a month ago (pre-ARS season on gag opening day - June 1st) and while we could only manage a few gags in the box, we smoked the ARS... could have sank the boat in meat. One big fish after another right back into the water. Hate it. pf

    New Yami F115 SHO prop choice

    A big thank you to Lurem and Sweendog for guiding me through this testing and decision making process. It was extremely close between the Spitfire 17P and the Talon 16P. Going with the Talon because of the massive hole shot and a near match to the Spitfire top end. Thanks Dale! Thanks Jeff! Thank you Outlaw and others who gave their time and valuable input. ~ Pondfisher

    New Yami F115 SHO prop choice

    Prop test results: Original - PT 17P — 33 mph @ 6200 rpms (surprisingly good hole shot) Yami Talon 19P — 44 mph @ 6000 rpms (sluggish hole shot) Merc Spitfire X7 17P — 44.5 mph @ 6000 rpms (acceptable hole shot) Merc Spitfire X7 19P — 45 mph @ 6200 rpms (sluggish hole shot) Yami Turbo 19P — 45 mph @ 6200 rpms (worst hole shot of them all) My prop and the Talon were tested by the shop that hung the motor. The other three were supplied by a local MBG Forum member/speed demon who has been a huge help in the entire process. Thanks bro! pf

    Rarely use the tabs for hole shot. Boat has always jumped on plane pretty well without them unless I have a heavy load. Numbers posted soon!

    Seat back rest for MA17

    Yeah, you’re right. It took a LONG time to get my boat back but the end product is dang near perfect (in terms of what I asked them to do). The attention to detail is impeccable and it’s truly a work of art, both functionally and aesthetically.

    Full boat improvements coming next week, hopefully. This stuff, I’ve discovered, takes way longer than is necessary.

    Seat back rest for MA17

    Finally got my backrest built (took a month to get on their schedule and then five weeks to complete the job because powder coating company had oven failure - so I was told) and it turned out super nice. Quality T Tops did the job but thank you to everyone who contributed info, especially sweendog whose backrest built by Bluepoint Marine was the inspiration and model for what I had Quality build. pf
