  1. Yeti Cooler Challenge

    The real real problem is, people not being accepting of other people's views and telling them they are wrong for what they think, say and write!
  2. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    I love me some Flounder fish tacos!
  3. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Only one catfish today, he hit hard though! Slot limit bookends on the snook today. 27.5" and 33.5". My buddy Bubba got his share of Snook one Redfish, and some kinda crazy trash can slam! (Joke of the day)
  4. Which AGM battery for house/starting?

    Ok ya a different charge profile make sense.
  5. Which AGM battery for house/starting?

    Charger voltage??? You should have 12v batts so you need a 12v charger. Do mean Amperage? The only thing more amperage will do for you is shorten the charge time.
  6. Which AGM battery for house/starting?

    Thats way off from what the manual recommends. Google, 2002 yamaha f115 owners manual, look on page 10. Try this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwj22MDh38jaAhWCwFkKHXS5Az4QFggnMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yamaha-motor.com%2Fassets%2Fservice%2Fmanuals%2F1%2Flit-18626-07-13_1370.pdf&usg=AOvVaw1mO9QpW0cK512b2wqUsFSN
  7. Poling platform cracking

  8. Which AGM battery for house/starting?

    One other thing that can help. The aux charging circuit, if its not wired up, wire it up to the #2 battery.
  9. Which AGM battery for house/starting?

    Im a fan of the Sams Duracells also, but if they are not easily available to you, can't go wrong with a Deka batt. As far as the 5th batt, I agree if you run the stereo and livewell you may have an issue. And I agree fishing in the 10k island I would have 5 batts. However, if you can remember to switch to your TM batt/#2 when you setup for a long time running the stereo and livewells, and you fish a populated area like Tampa, I think 4 is fine. The risk of a low battery is there, but for me in Tampa there is always help if needed.
  10. Bow mount trolling motor install on RF18

    Should have backing plates glassed in on either side of the bow, I prefer the TM on the left. The left, because if its a hand steer TM, my right hand is holding the rod, also I prefer to feel the edge of the boat with my right foot. I would keep all 3 in the console, and I would assume you have wires already run there with a breaker. If not you will need to add a breaker. And yes you will want an onboard charger.
  11. What is the bulkhead?

    I assume thats how they determine how deep to make the cushion. From the bulkhead edge to the rod holder.
  12. 18 MA w/ F150 Prop Update

    What was the load like, how much trim? If it was light just you, I would not be happy with only getting 5100, heavy 4 people might be ok. I would like to see close to 6100 light. I think if you can only get 5100 the engine is pretty loaded, and assume your fuel usage to be up. Its hard to direct compare props from different manufactures, there are other differences that just diameter. Mostly small differences, but those make a change in performance.
  13. What did you do to your boat today?

    I'm surprised this isn't built in and that it requires an extra device. Its built in to the EliteTi, which I thought was a lower level unit compared.
  14. Boat Storage and Trolling Motor Battery Charging

    Ya a Stealth charger, will be the best way to go. http://www.stealth1charging.com/
