  1. I'm really not even considering rebuilding my 130 2-stroke (it runs, but sounds like a jackhammer). I would like to repower with a very good condition, lower hour 2 stroke 150hp if I can find one, or would consider a 4 stroke 150hp in very good condition/low hrs also. I do not need controls.

    Any Experience with this Fuel/water separator?

    Do you have one with the primer pump on top like the one in the pic?

    1900 Tunnel Prop Question

    Thanks for the info on that. The VMAX has always been my choice if I ever got a chance to repower. Well, looks like that time has finally arrived.

    Finally pulled the trigger

    These are my gauges at his shop. The top picture is my set with power to the gauges. Notice that you can’t even see the LCD display. Bottom pic is after he refurbed the LCD screens and the outer lens

    Capt. Chris, before you spend a ton of money on new gauges, consider letting Eric Clayton at http://gaugesaver.com redo your gauges. I was almost ready to spend the $400-500 and buy new gauges for my Yamaha until someone mentioned this guy. Depending on how bad the screen is, he can probably restore them and the LCD screens to like new condition. Check his website out. My gauges were so bad that you couldn't see anything on the display. When he returned them, they looked almost brand new (mine had some severe pitting that he couldn't quite polish out, but said he could replace the lens if I wanted). I think he now charges $75 per gauge, and that includes return shipping to you.

    Boat Insurance

    I recently left Progressive (it was a policy thru USAA, who no longer is in the boat insurance biz). I got a policy from Foremost Insurance. Sold to me by the other half of the CNT CTCH SHT fishing team (my best friend and fishing partner that owns an independent agency). Pretty comprehensive policy with much better coverage than my Progressive policy.

    Improved Cheese Grater

    You should be free to make as many high speed runs thru Thunderbolt as you like. Remember, the Coast Guard isn’t getting paid, so I think their motivation may be real low to give chase. 😀

    1900 Tunnel Prop Question

    Let me re-hash this thread. Now that I just had a mechanical failure of some sort on my Yamaha 130, I’ve been looking for decent used engines. Preferably a 2 stroke 150. I did find a pretty low hour, excellent condition 150 HPDI with a 25” shaft, left hand turn gearcase. Here’s my question: since I have a jack plate, could I run that 25” motor in the highest mounting hole (putting it near the same depth in water) without much headache? I believe my midsection/gearcase are swappable to the HPDI if necessary.
  10. I’ve been told this is a good fuel/water separator set up. Anybody have experience with this one? It’s has the primer pump built into the housing so you can eliminate your primer bulb

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I managed to "blow up" my motor.... Now the search begins for either an entire replacement 2-stroke or just a new powerhead.
