  1. All Carbon Infused Pathfinder 2300HPS

    An update from today... We are building this rig "offline" as to not interfere with our production schedule. Made some progress this morning, some of you might admire the new livewell system we are trying on this boat. Seachest with Hooker Pumps, hope this works as well as it looks! Skip
  2. 2600 Trolling motor Shaft Length

    Both will work but most go with the longer shaft on the 26. Skip
  3. All Carbon Infused Pathfinder 2300HPS

    Making progress, pictures from this morning. Hull and deck work continue while the console and console box/ foot rest are now out of the molds. You can see the clear coat on the insert and inside the console, the dash panel will be in clear as well. Hardtop should be out next. Skip

    She's pretty lite... IMG_9822.MOV
  5. All Carbon Infused Pathfinder 2300HPS

    Let's see how this plays out first! I can tell you the materials are ungodly expensive, not for the faint of heart for sure. In the future we might offer the all Carbon option, need to add up all the additional costs and see if this might fly. Skip
  6. All Carbon Infused Pathfinder 2300HPS

    So we demolded the hull late yesterday, installed the fuel tank and added foam. The average weight of a VARIS infused 23 Pathfinder hull is 1131lbs, this hull is 897lbs, a loss of 234lbs. Combined with the deck, this package is 562lbs lighter than a standard build, a significant weight loss! Now we are building both the Hardtop and the Console with Carbon, we are expecting to see quite a weight savings on these items as well. Stay tuned...
  7. All Carbon Infused Pathfinder 2300HPS

    Well this could be a game changer! A typical VARIS infused deck for this model averages about 846lbs, this deck weighs 518lbs., a difference of 328lbs! Stay tuned, hull comes out this afternoon. Skip
  8. Thought some of you might find this interesting, building a 100% Carbon infused 23 Pathfinder at the moment. Somewhat of an experiment for us, if this saves as much weight as we think it will we might make this an option on a few select models in the future. Skip
  9. OEM T-top for Cobia 217?

    We use the same top on today's models, they are built for us by TNT Custom Boatworks. You can order one through a Cobia dealer or have one made locally which would be the best bet $ wise. Skip
  10. Loose Power poles

    In the OP's case, after looking a little closer we did install the washer on the wrong side of the bracket. Skip
  11. Loose Power poles

    Thanks Brandon... More from our OEM PP rep Blake: As for the extra hole, there is no such thing. The guy posting about the extra hole is claiming his installer drills an extra hole to prevent the pole from moving. This is not factory and definitely not something we recommend.

  12. Maverick 26 Master Angler OMG

    Sorry guys, the 26 is still in "ideation" as we have other projects to complete prior to starting on this one. Mainly the new facility which we are all working hard to get up to full speed, it is getting close and then we can move forward on cool projects such as the 26 Maverick. Skip

  14. Cobia's questions on boats built prior to 2006 Model Year

    What year is the boat? Was built prior to MBG owning the brand but we do have some old brochures here that might get you some info. Skip
  15. Forum decal

    We had 100's of them here for years but believed they got pitched in a recent office clean up. Skip
