  3. Yamaha outboard help

    When you describe it like that it sounds like a loose wire somewhere.
  4. WTB Yamaha Talon SS / SS4

    Sure is purty!! Definitely waiting to hear your report on the 21 pitch.
  5. Stereo Systems for MA17

    I personally like the JL audi systems, they rock. If you are only going with 2 speakers (7.7) instead of 4 speakers you can get the 200/2 marine amp and save $100 bucks +/-. I believe the 200 and 400 watt marine amp put out 75 watts per channel @ 4 ohms, the speakers are rated for 100W per channel Granted 4 speakers and a 400/4 amp is the real deal, but you have not mentioned price.
  6. Porpoising Redfisher

    J.N. The PTC is a good prop, at least it was on my Ma 18.5, why not send it out and have it reconditioned and tuned up?
  7. All new Pathfinder 2005

    Both Dabear and Geeviam have great points about pockets in the rear. I think both of you are right but I wonder about the design and size of the pockets on different models. I have a 16' boat and my pocket size looks to be the same size and dimensions as my friends 22' pathfinder? If this takes away from buoyancy and cause porpoising issues then why wouldn't the 16' boat have a smaller pocket? I think Dabear has a small pocket and he has an 18' (HPX) boat which is in the middle of the two mentioned above. Do HPX's have porpoising issues? Would a smaller pocket like on the HPX be better on my 16' RF so it would not porpoise like it does but still let me run my engine higher and get the benefits of a pocket drive? You mentioned action craft starting the pocket drive and I know people with them. They have never mentioned porpoising issues with there pocket drive boats. Lots of questions and theories about why our boats porpoise like they do and its not just one or two boats or models. As for jackplates, all boats I have get jackplates and trim tabs. It's like buying a new truck, first thing you do is shop for bigger wheels and tires and tint the windows.
  8. Let me know how that prop runs once you get it dialed in. Those are on my 'watch' list to try. Would you report here with your results or send me a PM when you get done?
  9. Spray rail and prop for sale

    I am interested in that Yamaha prop if it is in good shape. I sent you a pm with my number.
  10. Purchase Question

    http://shurflo.com/marine-products/more-marine-products/water-system-accessories/raw-water-strainers Is this what you mean? This looks like the company. Maybe give them a call and see if you can get the clear part.

    Could those lines that run parallel be from loading and unloading on the trailer bunks?
  12. I would think it would be a prop issue. /some props ventilate worse than others when trimming the engine. I know on my boat the Powertech SCD model only works when it is trimmed all the way down. one bump of the trim button and it blows out. Ask the installing dealer if you try a different prop configuration.
