    Minn Kota 36V Riptide tiller controlled $300

    Was the trolling motor new equipment when you purchased the boat? Any pictures?

    New Tow Vehicle

    I've been towing my 1900 with a 2018 Ram 1500 with 5.7L Hemi. No kidding, I get wonderful gas mileage. Normal Hwy driving without the boat behind it, I'm averaging almost 21mpg. this includes mixed use interstate (75mph) and 2 lane hwy (55mph) driving. I don't tow very far, but I would imagine that I'm getting 16-18mpg at 55mph with the boat behind it. My last 2 Tundras had the worst economy of any trucks I've ever owned. The best fuel economy I got WITHOUT the boat was 17.5mpg. My Ram is currently for sale if anyone might be interested. I'm looking to get a Ram 2500 diesel in the near future.

    Help Getting Engine Hours on 2004 Yamaha 150 VMAX

    Not necessarily. I had a 2001 that was a non-computerized engine. No way to verify engine hrs other than having digital gauges with hour function.

    Help Getting Engine Hours on 2004 Yamaha 150 VMAX

    I'm not familiar really on when these motors began putting the onboard 'computer' in these engines. Your year model may not have that capability. The Yamaha digital gauges usually kept track of the hours on the earlier engines.

    Suzuki Engine mounted fuel filter

    I’m going to be replacing the fuel filter under the cowling on my Suzuki DF140A this week. Is there anything I need to know about replacing it? It looks straight forward. Do I need a special tool to get the filter housing off? Normal thread direction?

    Thanks! Been a labor of love.

    Fall afternoon on the water

    Me and a few guys were bored after the tropical storm/depression came thru. Finally cleared and we exercised the outboards today. I’m probably running 4 inches of jackplate and close to half tabs. The 1900T likes to run flat and not on the back end of the hull.

    2001 21’ Maverick Master Angler

    People may want to know where you are located and maybe a phone number to discuss the boat. Beautiful Maverick, btw.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    While I’m at it...... I’m looking to replace the anchor locker latch. Factory piece was plastic. Is there a direct replacement that is SS? And what is the actual piece called?

    What did you do to your boat today?

    No. Mine has a removable piece that is made of some type of hard, thin sheet plastic (then carpeted) that has been formed to fit the area at the very stern end of the hatch. It’s in there pretty tight, and I never realized it was a separate piece until I began this project. I think I got more cuts, bruises, and pokes on this project than any other I’ve done on my boat.

    Had a few spare minutes, so I was able to get one hatch done.

    I’ve got a question for you guys that have replaced the hatch gaskets in the back of your Pathfinders. I bought the suggested size (from someone here in another thread) of McMaster-Carr seals. Will be replacing tomorrow. Question is - what was your best method of trimming the end to match as closely as possible to the opposite end where they meet? Also, any suggestion on the best location to place the gasket ‘joint’?

    Just so you can kind of see how this piece goes together.....
