  1. Power Washing

    Does power washing your boat remove the wax ?
  2. WTB Boat cover 03' 22V

    Dose your boat have a T-Top ?
  3. 2019 22 TRS Engine choices

    I have had an F150 on my Pathfinder 22 with a T-Top for 11years and am perfectly happy with my top end speed. Let me tell you why. Where I fish in the rivers , creeks and backwater of the lowcountry of SC, getting there crossing big water can get kind of rough. In all the time I've run this boat I can count on one hand the number of times I've gone full throttle because of a more than moderate chop. For me it's not a question of more or less power, but where you are going to use the boat most of the time and the conditions.
  4. F150 owners keep and eye on your balancer

    My F150 had 635 hours when my mechanic replaced my balancer (around $1000 parts and labor) with no symptoms. He said " seen too many engines freeze up and need new head replacement because of bad balancer". Why would Yamaha make a gear out of plasitic
  5. 2200 vs 2400

    I have been in both boats extensively, and the ride in the 24 is far superior in a heavy chop, wind, running tide etc. Obviously the 24 is a heavier boat and is a much more comfortable ride overall. Plenty of room in the 24 over the 22. Would not hesitate to go offshore in the 24, having said that you have to pick your days. Even so you certainly have more options offshore with the 24. Others that have a 24 will chime in and have more experience than me.
  6. Flat Tire Tools

    This works great, simple and easy to apply. Have used it a couple of times and it worked flawlessly Springfield Tire Jack For 10"-15" Wheels \
  7. Cover for boat on a lift

    If the lift doesn't have walkways on the side of the boat, add some , and covering and washing the boat is no problem.

  11. Best Battery Charger?

    Good choice ! I've had my Dual Pro charger (original equipment) for 11 years without a hitch, don't even know it's there. Works flawlessly.

    My upholstery shop couldn't do it because the logos are protected by copyright laws, supposedly.

  14. 2015 PathFinder 23hps fuel gauge not accurate

    GFS 10 Garmin fuel sensor. The GFS 10 tracks fuel flow use and sends the data to your chartplotter via the Garmin CANet or NMEA 2000.This is a very accurate system for fuel consumption along with other useful data for fuel economy. I'm not sure but I think it can only be used on Yamaha engines 2007 or newer.
  15. Reupholstered cushion

    The PF logo is from the old upholstery. They cut it out and restitched into the new upholstery. She said that the logo is protected by copyright, but she is going to ask MBC for permission to reproduce it for the future.
