    RF 18 getting water in bilge

    If you have not already try looking at the scupper tubes in the sides of the hull. The sealant that holds the scupper tubes draws up and can cause leaks into the hull. Pull out tubes and re-seal.

    Fan to circulate air under full boat cover

    I wonder what would happen if we were to put a couple of the heated rods like the ones in gun safes? I do not know how much area they cover but they are maintenance free. Maybe that is what fin-addict is describing above? goldenrod?

    Fan to circulate air under full boat cover

    I us a fan just like BradM and I take the splash well pie plate out and place a fan blowing towards the bilge. I also loosen the pie plate that is located under the center console so fresh air can circulate under the console and fill up the boat cover. I still have small amounts of mold that show up and have to clean out under the center console and wipe it down about once a year but I feel it has slowed it down some with the fresh air circulating constantly. I also run a EVA DRI dehumidifier under the boat cover but that needs to be emptied every 3-4 days or once it gets full. It is a constant battle for me as my boat is under a carport which is under a huge oak tree. My outside humidity gauge always shows 90-94% humidity readings under my carport. https://www.amazon.com/Eva-dry-Edv-1100-Electric-Petite-Dehumidifier/dp/B000H0ZDD2/ref=asc_df_B000H0ZDD2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167142742016&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=879457433248548126&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9012103&hvtargid=aud-799146894166:pla-305170695489&psc=1

    MA 21 biggest jacklplate setback

    OCL, Pm bdsnook on the forum as he has a 21 MA with a 200 Merc and runs a jackplate. I am not sure of the setback though.

    DIW (Dead In the Water) story

    So your trolling motors died from trolling all day AND your starting motor died too? What caused the total discharge of your starting battery if you were trolling on the 2 batteries that are the ones for your trolling motor?

    DIW (Dead In the Water) story

    I have the same battery selector as you and just recently mine has lost the detent position and it just spins without locking into position. I figured I had one more trip without it leaving me stranded so I went fishing Monday with BDSnook from the forum. It did the same as you described on position "1" (click, click, dead)so I moved it to "both" and got it started then moved it back to "1" to get home. Luckily we did not get stranded but I called my local marine hardware store and ordered another one. I just need to get downtown to pick it up. Hopefully it won't be to hard to install. Why do you think you go through batteries like you do?

    Prop Help

    Troy, Reading the Yamaha SHO web page is says max RPM's is 6K but produces 200 HP @ 5500 rpms. So the Solas prop you are running is in the right where it needs to be for max HP. If that was running light then that would be a good choice because once loaded it would settle down to 5500 max RPM's or so. Maybe find out what pitch that is and experiment with different models to get the correct hole shot and running attitude he wants. If he is sending it out then have him describe what the boat does and what he wants and ask the prop guy if he can make the SOLAS work for him. https://yamahaoutboards.com/en-us/home/outboards/v-max-sho/v6-4-2l
