  1. Master Angler Production

    Just curious, how does the classic Pathfinder 2200v hull differ from the 21 MA hull? How would you compare the two rides?
  2. Trailer Setup Advice

    My Ameritrail does the same thing on very steep ramps. I don't think what you are experiencing is that uncommon.
  3. Checking in on our Florida Members

    Best to Florida residents. There's been little coverage of the after effect on the Keys. How did the Keys do?
  4. Broken hatch - Replace or is it an easy fix

    The hatches are made out of a composite material but can be repaired by a good glass guy. I had the same damage in SoCal's second photo repaired several years ago and it has held up great.
  5. Trailer grease black??

    A stuck caliper can cause one (or more) brakes to drag and overheat. Feel your hubs after trailering, they should all be cool/slightly warm to the touch.
  6. Yamaha 2005 VMAX Carbed Troubleshooting

    Ordered new white plastic linkage, $18 on Ebay. Temporary fix below. I set the arm so it is about a 1/16" above the stop with the motor in neutral. This is slightly "richer" than factory recommends. I'll see how the boat runs and adjust if needed.

    I think you nailed it. Thanks
  8. Yamaha 2005 VMAX Carbed Troubleshooting

    Three symptoms I've noticed in the last week or so. This is a carbureted 2 stroke motor. (Not HPDI). I've owned the boat and motor for13 years 1. Excessive increase in blue smoke when starting, cold or warm. 2.Very noticeable increase in oil consumption. 3.Oil reservoir on motor is at or slightly over the full line. Motor has about 1000 hours on it and has been completely trouble free. Motor runs great but I'm also noticing a slight vibration in the mid-rpm range. (This could be in my head.) Any ideas? Thanks
  9. Is a F150 Enough power for a 2200 Pathfinder

    Great to know thanks! I'd gain about 80 pounds net. I'd move my 2 cranking batteries from the starboard side rear to under the center console to help compensate.
  10. Is a F150 Enough power for a 2200 Pathfinder

    My current motor weighs 418 #'s
  11. Is a F150 Enough power for a 2200 Pathfinder

    Tall Tails, Did you notice any difference in the balance of your 2200v when you repowered to the heavier 225 sho? Thanks
  12. Yamaha 2 Stroke oil

    I have used Yamalube and Pennzoil. My VMax runs much better with the Pennzoil. Much less smoke and better idle. I ran my oil tank down to 1/4 " in the tank before I switched brands.
  13. Single axle vs dual axle

    If you get a dual axle with brakes, keep an eye on your calipers. A sticking caliper can cause friction, heat, loss of grease and hub failure. This is not rare with surge brakes even in newer trailers.
  14. Stress cracks @ corners of splash well

    My 05 and friends 07 have similar stuff.
  15. Single axle vs dual axle

    I went from a single axle Loadrite to an Ameritrail dual with my 2005 Pathfinder. The one and only negative for me is brake maintenance and replacement. If you don't mind spending the money, the Ameritrail with bunks does a great job cradling the boat if you trailer a lot.
