  1. 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!

    Retired

    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.
  6. They might not be pretty but they look better when you are hauling the mail and your eyes start to water!

    Freshwater fishing?

    Thanks guy, I don't feel so bad now. Worms have been OK but the best bait so far has been a saltwater ZMan shad. I have tried topwater but the gators seem to like those more than the fish. I think it is nice having anything chase a topwater down from across the pond but the girlfriend does not find as much joy as I do.

    Yamaha Gauge Restoration

    I used him a few years back. Gauges came out good. They did not seem as bright but can read them now. Yes, all your info will still be there, You get back the same gauge you sent him.

    Freshwater fishing?

    Being born and raised 5 minutes from saltwater I never really payed much attention to freshwater fishing. I am now a few more miles inland and have a small lake/pond behind the house. When we first moved in i was catching small bass and bowfin, ya I know bowfin are "junk" fish but the bend the rod and are fun. I thought I was getting things dialed in as it was a regular bite. Then it seemed like all of a sudden things stopped. Now I'm not out there for hours on end, I just toss the line while enjoying a cold beverage late in the afternoon. Do the fish just shut down in the summer heat? Gators get them all from their spring mating? Me just getting lucky before?
  11. Looks like a transducer to me.

    For all you prop junkies put there . . .

    Pretty neat readout. It does not seem that far off to my untrained eye. I think most props are off when the come from any manufacture, heck my last prop was from Mercury Racing that was supposed to be balanced and all that jazz and one of the four blades was off a whole 1" in pitch! There is a reason some send off a brand new prop they just spent some coin on to spend more $$$ to have the balance and blueprinted.

    New Yami F115 SHO prop choice

    My guess is you will be close if not there. From what I've read the F100 is on the weak side of 100hp while the SHO is on the high side of 115hp so that gives you about 35% HP increase, not bad! Also the gears are taller on the SHO I think.

    I can't Make This Stuff Up,.... Twice!

    Well I think that is a Pathfinder, a hacked up one but a Pathfinder.

    New Yami F115 SHO prop choice

    Very nice on the new power! I know Robert years back had a 115, non-sho, and ran a bunch. His setup was close to what you have. https://www.bandofboaters.com/forum/technical-forums/performance-handling/performance-reports/198-98-maverick-master-angler-17-2009-f115-w-jp-and-negative-wedge
