  1. JEM is correct....either write Funky Monkey on this forum or call Power Tech Props and ask for Marcus. I will say that my 2200XL cavitated bad with 3 blade props....Marcus recommended the OFX4 ( four blades ) and It works great !
  2. South Georgia Sunrise

    Daylight on the river....
  3. inspection hatch

    Look up T and H Marine Supplies ..... they have all sizes and types.
  4. Georgia Wild Shrimp

    Our Georgia shrimping fleet has diminished in size considerably, primarily due to cheap imported pond raised shrimp, the cost of maintenance on their boats , nets, gear, etc ....doesn't allow them to compete with the cheaper imported shrimp from China and other countries. If you have ever actually compared the difference in taste, texture and quality of the imported shrimp to our Georgia wild local shrimp...you know that there is no comparison. The Georgia coast was once home to thousands of shrimp boats from Savannah down to St Mary's....nowadays it's probably less than a hundred total on the entire Georgia coastline. Next time you get a chance to buy either import or local....support your local guys.
  5. mpg on a yammy vf200la

    I've got the F150 on a 2009 / 2200XL and with a OFX4-17 I can get 45 mph @ 5900 rpms.....that's loaded for fishing. It's no speed demon, but it's about twice as good on mpg as my F250 was on my PF 2400V. It would probably be a little faster with a 3 blade prop, but I really like the way it handles with the 4 blade. The one guy that has really played with props on these motors is JEM. He also probably has recorded some data on the performance of each one.
  6. 1991 Hewes Bonefisher for sale

    Nice sled !!
  7. 2000v pathfinder

    I agree with Justfish: if you get a 45 or bigger Yeti / RTIC / Engel / Cabelas, etc, etc....you will not need hold down devices
  8. Finally an HPX18 owner

    Very nice.
  9. Pathfinder grabrail

    Is that the same console as 2009. XL2200 ? Do you have windshield also ?
  10. 2016 Mav HPX-V w/trailer (17ft)

    Good looking sled.
  11. Sell or trade 2008 150hp Yamaha Vmax?

    You better get some goggles....that 1900T will fly with that 150 on it. Those gnats will hurt at 60 mph.
  12. Tripletail In South Georgia

    Here in Georgia it's 18" length minimum and 2 per day.
  13. Tripletail In South Georgia

    Got lucky today with the tripletail....caught two....one keeper , one release. I'm just glad they are starting to show up....also spotted some Tarpon rolling in surf chasing pogies.
  14. Pathfinder

  15. Tripletail In South Georgia

    Do you catch many of them down there ? They are seasonal here.... July 4 through Labor Day normally.
  16. MGB GEAR?

  17. Bimini Install Question (follow-up w/ installed pics)

    I mounted mine 5 years ago using screws and 5200 and have zero issues and the top is used a lot. Follow HoneyB's instructions above and you'll be fine.
  18. 2004 22 TE 2014 F150

    Nice looking rig....same color as JEM's.
  19. My neighbor is running a Yamaha 3 blade 19" on his RF 18 with a 150 SHO. It runs very well.....
  20. Hull pad?

    If you guys no anyone with a Ranger / Gambler / STV / etc freshwater bass boat....look underneath it from the drain plug forward, you'll see a real pad. Those boats run on the pad at high speeds, there is literally very little if any boat hull in the water. If you are watching these boats run out across open water, you'll see about 90% of the boat completely out of the water. Neither my PF 24 or my PF 22 has a true running pad.
  21. 2200 vs 2400

    I've owned both and fished offshore the South Georgia coast with both....the 22 is actually 22' 2" and the 24 is actually 23'11"..... so there is only 1'9" diff, both have the exact beam of 8' 6". Neither will ride anything as compared to the new 2500. The bay boats just do not have the V to cut the chop that the 2500 has. That being said....both the 22 and 24 bay boats are very good and substantial hulls for fishing offshore....just pick your days accordingly. The conditions change very quick after you get past the 10 mile mark offshore.....
  22. Power Pole

    If you are fishing in any current....I would recommend the 8 ft if you constantly fish in 5 to 6 ft of water. Depending on sand or mud bottom, I've seen mine sink two feet in the mud. I personally have had nothing but extremely positive customer support from Power Pole. They are by far one of the best customer service companies I have ever dealt with. Any problem you have, the pump whines, small leak at fitting, paint flaking off the mounting bracket......you call them, and the next day your replacement part is in the mail at no charge. I cant speak either way for Talon because I have never owned anything but Power Poles.
  23. 2014 2600 Pathfinder HPS For Sale

    Very nice rig.
  24. 2005 Pathfinder 2000v with hull damage

    $ 2500 per side ? Meaning x 2 = $ 5000 for complete repair ? That's a lot of $$ How many hours are on the boat ?
  25. Axle/Hub replacement

    The shop here in Savannah gets 2 hours per axle at $75 per hour.....so it's $300 labor plus parts for tandem trailer.
