    Pathfinder 2000V

    Depends on where you are going to be running it. If you fish inlets or anywhere in Georgia 36v.....and there are times the 36v isn’t enough. Anywhere else an 80lb motor will be fine. 60” shaft for me

    2018 Hybrid 25 Pathfinder

    wouldn’t it be wayyy cheaper just to have a second station added to your existing top. I would think a fiberglass/aluminum fabricator could make that happen. sales tax alone on the new 2019 with all your options plus the second station in the tower is going be near $10,000....then factor in the hit you are going to take on the depreciation of selling your basically brand new boat......that 2nd station is going to end up cost you about $50k

    the first order of business before you embark and working in the bilge is to go to thmarine.com and get the biggest rectangle hatch cover that will fit in your splash well to replace that small round pie hole access hatch and get the one with the removable lid so you get both arms down there and work. trust me on this one!!

    New Fishing Buddy

    She’s probably best looking yellow lab I’ve ever seen! Great dogs no doubt......at least 2 years from now she will be anyway. It is amazing how something so cute can be so destructive....9 months will be her peak of being a one dog wrecking crew.

    New 2400 TRS Live well pump(s) failure

    I quit using Rule about 12 years ago. I’ve been using shurflo ever since with only one failure. The 800 gph Shurflo Piranha is a very quite and long lasting pump. Heck the one in my dad’s boat is a 2006 and still going strong.

    Post your MA pics here!

    today a 2018 used 17’ Maverick skiff with a 70 horse is that much. In 1998 a brand new 31 Open Contender with twin 250 ox66’s on a loadmaster trailer sold for the same price as the above mentioned used 17’ Maverick. Simply amazing!!

    New 22 TRS on order... few questions

    You won’t have that sports car feel until you look back and the sticker on the motor reads 250 SHO. TRUTH

    New 22 TRS on order... few questions

    That’s a fairly big and heavy boat w T top for an F150.....you still have to add a trolling motor and 3 more batteries, so you aren’t going do a lot better on speed with the right prop....truthfully that boat loaded ready fish with livewell full you be doing good to see 43 mph WOT. It is just the truth of the beast.

    2019 22 TRS Engine choices

    i think the v6 SHO’s can be bought with a 25” shaft now
  12. Nice boat. Should sell quickly. Are there no set back requirements in your neighborhood???? Your neighbor is super close

    Jack Plates on a 2000v P/F

    i have my motor all the way down as far as the holes will allow. sometimes with a full tank of gas and a 65 qt cooler with ice infornt of console i will get some proposing at midrange speed between 35 and 40. but with an average load i can trim motor up pretty high and cruise with little no porpoising. i think the power tech SCD prop manages that porpoising for the most part. i think it is an 18 pitch, i will check this week and let you know the specific numbers on the prop

    Jack Plates on a 2000v P/F

    mine will hit 50 with SCD 4 blade and performs great across the whole rpm range.

    Jack Plates on a 2000v P/F

    that hull will not gain anything from a jack plate and will in fact increase proposing. i have one with an f150. that motor does not need to be any further back than mounted directly to the transom.
