  1. So Dino, did you see any catfish while you & Don were out there??
  2. On the Lagoon

    Nice fly, Don! Is your tan dubbing a brush of some kind (with rubber legs in it)?
  3. Rainbow Trout on Davidson River

    Nice 'bow!
  4. Trolling motor for 17 HPX-V ??

    The man makes sense, IMHO. My 17T's hull size and weight are close to yours. It's got a 55# 12v iPilot on it, with (only) one group size 31 Deka AGM battery. I've never had a problem with battery life, but in a strong current, it struggles.
  5. GPS PLotter Replacement

    Replaced my 178C with a 441....... then replaced that with a 541S. No wiring changes for either.
  6. Electric Chicken

    I'm told that the fish think it tastes like alligator!
  7. Free Nav Light

    I'd love to have it, if it's still available. Would Paypal payment (no fee) work for you?
  8. Mysterious leak solved? Now how to seal it?

    Be sure to fill it with water before you seal it. If you don't, the sealant will probably pull apart with the weight of a full tank of water. Probably best to use a flexible marine sealant - - not as strong as 5200, but flexible.
  9. Abel and orvis

    I thought that the T3 was good until I switched to a Helios ....... WOW! Can't compare it to Abel, though, because I've not tried one.
  10. REFURB Suggestions: Gel/Paint/SeaDeck

    Bob, I could not have found anything more perfectly matched to how and where I fish. I was lucky to buy it from you. Fishing on this side has generally been lousy this year, but I'd love to take you out around here whenever the opportunity comes up.
  11. REFURB Suggestions: Gel/Paint/SeaDeck

    [image]http://www.mbcforum.com/fbbuploads/1458678949-Deck.JPG[/image] Dino, my 17T has SeaDek everywhere you can put either your foot or your backside, and I absolutely love it. I'm usually shoeless in the boat (bare feet know when you're standing on your fly line) - - and my feet aren't sore at the end of the day. Our man Bob can tell you more about it, b/c he installed it for me. [image]http://www.mbcforum.com/fbbuploads/1458678722-Seat_Box.JPG[/image]
  12. Costa Rica

    Doesn't golf cut into your fishing time??
  13. spray rails 17T Pathfinder

    Did you install them yourself, Mort? Dino, if/when you find a good spray rail to use, please do your usual outstanding job of documenting the project.
  14. FWIW, Dino, the prop on my 60 2-stroke Yamaha is a 15 pitch four blade PT. (YM90SCD4R15P) When I'm solo, the hole shot is amazing. With two others in the boat, not so much, but I'd bet that would change if I had a few more horses with the same prop. I rarely go much over 25 here in Estero Bay. Fastest I've ever seen (per Garmin) was 41 - - way too fast for that boat! That was in perfect conditions, BTW. But low to mid-thirties with two in the boat is easy to do when there's no chop.
  15. Trim tabs: What Carlos said about canting the boat in chop. Also, I "carve" tight turns (sort of the way a skier does) by trimming down on the side I'm turning to and up on the other side....helps a whole lot.
