    What did you do to your boat today?

    Looking sharp! I'm glad you can go fast enough to get a good breeze going or you might fall asleep in those seats. They look comfy!

    NOCO Gen4 Install

    The NOCO Genius On-Board Battery Charger # 329-GEN4 does not have the extensions like the NOCO Accessories X-Connect Extension Cable - 10' Long # 329-GC004. If you were to extend the wires from the manufacturer, you would need to so without altering the ring terminals or you would void the manufacturer warranty. The NOCO DC leads can be extended up to 10 additional feet after the inline fuse but not before it. NOCO does not recommend any modifications between the inline fuse and the charger itself. The electrical connections to either the AC input or the DC output of the charger are modified without the express written consent of NOCO. I could not find NOCO's specific instructions on how they want it done, but yes bolt another set of ring terminals on and heat shrink them up good.

    NOCO Gen4 Install

    Do not extend the lines by simply cutting and adding a longer length, it will void you warranty and you might need it. The warranty will be void if anything has changed on the charger even if you cut and put new ring terminals on. Their way to extend the leads is basically add another ring terminal and bolt them together if I remember correctly. They might have how to do it on there web site if not give them a call.

    8 vs 10ft powerpole on hewes redfisher 18

    I think HoneyB is right, I forget the exact difference. I went through the same thing when trying to decide which size to go with. I simply taped a 2x4 on to the Power Pole I already had on the boat to see how it would look. Ended up with the 10 footer.

    2016 Pathfinder 23 HPS *** SOLD ***

    Beautiful boat. Having one of Josh's old boats I can say he keeps his things in top shape and I'm sure this beauty is no different.

    2300 Hps coming soon!

    It will be interesting to see those pictures. I sometimes run a 23 that has been worked some, basically cup for more grip. Sounds like Josh is adding more rake to the prop closer to the hub? Does the work he did still allow the prop to spin up on the holeshot?

    2400 TRS Lowrance total scan transducer location?

    Do you guys with the traducers low in the pocket get any prop slip from it?
  8. My switches are backlit and have worked great for years. If anyone wants to trade boats straight up, we can talk. A 23 would fit my needs better but could probably make a new 25 work also.☺️

    Single bank Genius onboard charger

    I might be the odd ball here. I have not had the single bank charger, mine were 3 bank and I have not had good luck. I went through 2 in about a year or so and have one sitting in the garage now and not in the boat. I can say that they have good customer service. I am not bashing them in any way as I have heard nothing but good things about their product. Maybe I just good a bad string of them or maybe it was my own bad luck.

    I think that is an understatement! We got a new house not long ago and the owner sold us the generator there for "cheap". It was never used but they must have put some gas in it to try it out and never drained the fuel when they were done. The junk that came out of the fuel system was shocking and the time it took to get it running was not fun. It now sits with an empty tank and carb like Brad stated.
  11. I have had one rebuilt by Marine Rebuild Specialist. They use all OEM parts. Since they use those high $$ Yammi parts the cost to have it rebuilt was not much less, if any, then a new Yamaha lower. In my case the insurance paid for the rebuild but would not pay for a new one due to the age of the motor.

    Ft Laud Boat Center Closed

    There are just too many factors to just pinpoint one that is causing the problem with the new "work"force. I'm a golf course superintendent so I see all kinds coming in the door. It is a constant problem getting many to simply show up on time and do anything. If you can find someone who actually works the chances of them showing up everyday is slim because the can only make so much before their "help" cuts them off. I find it funny that we have older semi-retired guys who don't need the money that will work circles around the young bucks, and they show up everyday!

    My guess is a mod can not guess for a reason.

    Older boat restoring question

    I think HoneyB nailed it. There is a big difference between a freshening up and restore. It is hard to give a price depending on how far you want to take it. $5K can go a long way if you are just looking to refresh the boat, not so far in a restore. If you are doing a restore you are going to have more money than the boat is worth and will be in the hole.

    2008 22’ pathfinder

    All the 200 HPDI 25" shaft motors I have ever seen have been the 2.6 which is an awesome combo.
