  1. Gas shock brackets

    That's nice, exactly what I was thinking.
  2. Gas shock brackets

    You could make it yourself. Pickup piece of 3" angle aluminum, trace the shape on it and cut it out. File the edges down smooth, drill a hole for the ball stud. Ya its a bit of work, but possible. Might be able to get the metal here. https://www.alro.com/locations/location.aspx?loc=CI

  4. Trailer brakes advice needed

    Brakes are locked out by reverse light power. You need a 5 pin trailer light plug. It can be done manually, but it's a pain to do everytime you have to backup. Kodiak are they only way to go.
  5. Cleats for Hanging Fenders

    Maybe one of these options and tie it the console rod holder or grab rail. https://www.westmarine.com/buy/taylor-made--low-freeboard-bass-boat-fenders--P005_156_001_011?recordNum=23 https://www.westmarine.com/buy/airhead--hull-hugr-contour-fender-black--16687451?recordNum=27
  6. Can charging shorten battery life?

    Well the answer could be yes. If something is left powered on while the charger is on, (powerpole, radio, or other) then the battery will drain down, and then the charger will kick on. With a charger connected and something left on, this will result in many small cycles over the time the boat is sitting. Small cycles are worse for a battery than regular drains of 50%. So be sure the battery switch is off, and nothing is powered. Also if the motor or the charger is actually over charging the battery, then yes battery life will be shortened. Also I agree with conocean, I don't leave mine connected all the time. I have fear of an electrical short, and if he says many burn I would believe it.
  7. New Axles

    6 Years thats good. That little rubber cap on the hubs is pretty standard on all posilube type axles. I replace them about once a year, cause they get dry rot.
  8. New Axles

    No experience. But now I want them, 100,000 miles and no grease! The hub grease will last longer than the axle. Care to share the cost and how do they measure mileage for the warranty?
  9. In search of a Poling Platform

    On the Maverick Hewes Pathfinder Facebook page.
  10. How are you cleaning up wiring 1997 Bayfisher

    It's a struggle, no matter how ya do it.
  11. If just the compression test, the broker can do it, just be there to watch and verify the numbers. Nothing hard about the test. If you want a more in-depth inspection then I'd have an outside mech do it.

    Loop knot on 30 and lower, uni knot on larger.
  15. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    If you can seriously take a 200hp motor to 320hp for $700, I would be all over that.
