  1. 2000 MA Repair Thread - Stringer issue

    Now lets see you keep that bilge that white.............................Looks good.
  2. 1996 Bonefisher 16 Gunnels Uneven

    You really need to eliminate the trailer as the cause. Of course there is a chance the hull could be twisted, but its much more likely the trailer is the cause. The level looks to me to show, both trailer and boat have slight left side rise, just like your pics. You need to take a lot of measurements. First have to be sure the ground it level, then lots of measurements all the way down both sides, from boat to the trailer and trailer to the ground. Measure all the bunk board attachments to see if they are the same. I say this, because if I was to push your boat on the left side and roll it on the trailer, I could make it level. Also I just noticed it looks like you have a side console, that is on the low side of the boat as it sits. When you load the boat on the trailer the weight of the driver on that side, could easily make the boat roll as its loaded on the trailer. I would suspect this to be the cause of the of the offset.

    How's the battery?
  4. Pathfinder

  5. Sell or trade 2008 150hp Yamaha Vmax?

    Might help to mention weather its, carb, ox66 or hpdi.
  6. Flip up anchor light repair

    I get it there has to be and they have to meet standards, and they will only recommend the CG approved equipment. Makes total sense from business perspective. I can tell you the bulb I put in is brighter and projects much better than the original incandescent bulb. Of course that doesn't mean its right, but Im comfortable with it and feel safer with the light now than with old bulb.
  7. 1996 Bonefisher 16 Gunnels Uneven

    Need to measure from gunnel to trailer and trailer to ground. Gunnel to ground won't tell you it its sitting crooked on the trailer. Also could put a level the boat and on the trailer and compare. Hard to believe hull is twisted an there are no cracks.
  8. Hull pad?

    Well dang, I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile........
  9. Hull pad?

    No real clue, but Ill take a guess. Any flat surface is going to help in lifting of the hull, which should reduce some of the wet running surface of the hull. Maybe its just to help with planing, but should help increase speed and efficiency also. Now it will clearly never get up and run solely on the pad like a bass boat, but my guess is thats not the goal.
  10. Trolling Motor Batteries

    If the batts are truly good, I would check the charger. Maybe charge them with another charger and see how long you get. But typically this is a symptom of a bad batt. I have to assume you're not running at 3/4-full speed for 2hours, but if so that may be all you get. Its tough to catch fish making that much noise running the TM that fast..............:)
  11. Towing 2200V as a tender

  12. Boat rehab

    Nice work, looks great. And a very nice fish.
  13. Trailer jacks

    Yes, and they are totally repairable and parts are available.
  14. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    Before you pickup the phone to call the insurance company, consider sending a PM to "whichwaysup", Gus. If you don't wanna do that, at least look back to his posts and read what he had to say about his experience with insurance. He just dealt with insurance and would probably give you some very valuable information.
  15. 18HPX - Battery Location

    Makes sense, I was just thinking out loud!!!!!!
  16. 18HPX - Battery Location

    Just wondering, I don't have HPX. If the boat is nose heavy with a full tank, could you fill the livewell to offset it? I know it adds draft, but maybe just for the long morning run, help get the bow up some. Then empty the well at the spot or as gas gets used.
  17. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Now thats just awesome............
  18. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Gus, thats a great day. Wish I could find a reds down here.
  19. Power Pole

    I would say 6 foot is really like 4ish ft. It will mount above the water, so thats a loss, it will need to penetrate the bottom to hold, so thats a loss in length. Two guys on the bow and now the bottom is even farther away.... I would go 8ft, it just makes it more usable. You could install one of these. https://hydrillagear.com/shop/tiltremovable-bracket/
  20. Flip up anchor light repair

    Best to keep it in the up position, it won't get water in that way. There is an LED bulb that fits it, I bought one on Amazon, or Ebay. Do a search for "31mm Festoon LED bulb". Im pretty sure its 31mm, might double check that before you buy.

    Dale, we'll have to Photoshop in a new SHO Vmax for the 2020 18MA brochure.......
  22. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    Just wondering if you had the boat surveyed prior to purchase? Do you have insurance? If you deal with insurance, from what others here have experienced, know the reason for the damage. Also don't forget you bought a 13 year old used boat. Good luck with your repair.
  23. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Too funny..........I do have one cup holder in the console, however it is always filled with hooks, jigs and a Zara Spook or 2. Notice the coffee cup on the floor in the back left corner.
