  1. In search of a Poling Platform

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

    It's a struggle, no matter how ya do it.
  3. 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.
  4. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Great info Simon, thanks.
  5. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Well,,,,, this got weird!
  6. Best Fluorocarbon Knot?

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

    If you can seriously take a 200hp motor to 320hp for $700, I would be all over that.
  8. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    I have to assume, emissions(CARB), fuel economy, and longevity of the motor. But really have no clue.
  9. Cleaning/Waxing

    I would say don' use it too frequently. Over time and lots of use I'm pretty sure it will etch the surface and stains will become worse. Best if you can wax the area after use. Its great stuff, I use it about once a year.
  10. MBC Tampa Owners Tournament

    Thats too bad, fishing hasn't been bad in the bay. But I get it, I wouldn't want to come vacation on the beach with my family right now.
  11. Older hull recommendations for Tampa Bay

    I would think the draft of the Mirage to be similar to the MA, so between those I think the MA wins. The HPX-V should be shallower and if you plan to fish the bay based on winds/weather and launch where its the best, I would say the HPX would be a good option. But if you think crossing the bay would be a regular event I would lean toward the MA.
  12. Older hull recommendations for Tampa Bay

    17 MA. There is not a better riding boat for crossing Tampa Bay.
  13. Pliers / Sheath

    Sweet, that guy does awesome work.
  14. Couple of t/m questions

    24v is enough. I don't think the old quick release will work. The deck mount puck will need to be moved much farther forward, the wireless TM's sit on the very edge. The foot print of the wireless TM is much smaller, so I think you will need to buy a new quick release.
  15. Gasket material

  16. Cleaning/Waxing

    Starbright fiberglass stain remover. Spray it on hose it off and it will be bright white.
  17. 2003 Maverick Master Angler 18.5

    Very nice, low hours.
  18. Electrical help please, I’m a novice!

    Those circuit breakers are terrible, you should replace them with these. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/4208190333587363579?lsf=seller:2709845,store:6300748338720339444&prds=oid:3749434195060504054&q=waterproof+marine+fuse+holder&hl=en&ei=24mNW4r_BO6s0PEP_rqFyAY&lsft=gclid:CjwKCAjwt7PcBRBbEiwAfwfVGJNvGRuhwP4XgcPL6TjPIADynxGrF826XsRyOAVs7RbXhPG0_VQqGBoCNQkQAvD_BwE
  19. Pliers / Sheath

    That's badass. I have a leather sheath for my pliers as well, and love it. You might post the gentleman's contact info, as I bet others will want one.
  20. F150 owners keep and eye on your balancer

    Great catch and great info.
  21. replacement hatch cable?

    Ya, I don't understand that. Why make it hard to buy your product?
  22. replacement hatch cable?

  23. West Marine or any local store is not an Authorized repair center for Shurflo, if they were they would fix it. Walmart is not an Authorized repair center for Samsung, you wouldn't take a year old TV back to Walmart. You can't compare the repair process of a $30 pump to that of $30k motor. All you have to do is contact Shurflo, and they will send you a new one if the warranty is what you claim. If you need one today, go buy it from West Marine then return the warranty one Shurflo sends you. This not a West Marine, local store problem to deal with, its a Shurflo problem.
  24. Expired Flares

    This is why I don't carry them, and no one (FWC, C.G. or Police) have ever cared.
  25. Seems like normal ops to me, typical store return is 90 days or less doesn't matter where.
