  1. 2012 Maverick Hpxv 18, new Vmax 115 34 Hrs

    What are you wanting for your Mosquito and configuration specs (eng, options etc)? Maybe we can make this work for all parties.
  2. Or dragging it on the boat ramp.
  3. 2000 Maverick Master Angler 17 MINT CONDITION!!

    Have a problem with the title, mint means it is original factory fresh, not restored. Two entirely different things.
  4. 2010 Cobia 21 Bay

    MBG built them in 2010, believe they acquired Cobia around 2004 and do not think they ever build the older designs. They built a plant in NC, which closed in early 2009 due to the economic downturn, all manufacturing is now in FL.
  5. Propoising Question

    Transom mounted tabs are outboard enough so you should be dragging the keel way before you ever drag a tab.
  6. Propoising Question

    A stern lifting 4 blade will help some, but the relatively flat bottom hull design will always have some issues at slow to med cruising speeds. Trim tabs help, but hurt efficiency.
  7. back on mkt

    Tumeric, celery seed and cherry juice for gout.
  8. Bob’s Jack Plate Pump/Motor Replacement

    Just use the installation manual for instructions on bleeding etc. (you just cycle it, it is self bleeding) Inspect the hoses, if you see any damage to the casing or if they have been pinched, replace. Hoses are rated for 1 million cycles at a pressure 1.33 times its maximum rating. A jackplate application will never fatigue a hose. Just so long as it is not physically damaged in some way, it will be good.
  9. TV Antennas. Cord cutting

    Have Channel Master antennas in both my houses, good product.
  10. Pliers

    You can also get fairly inexpensive ceramic scissors, do not have to worry about rusting.
  11. Powerpole tubing through transom, yay or nay?

    I routed mine thru the black plastic strip on the transom, keeps it high with less chance of leaking and did not have to drill thru the gel coat.
  12. Under Gunnel Rod Holder

    Depending on what type of reels you use, fly versus spinning and baitcast, you may need more. Fly reel will usually sit on the opposite side of the holders than other reels.
  13. Under Gunnel Rod Holder

    You can buy pieces of Seadek for $10 a piece, lure pad, works well. They make a reel pad that is $12.95, roughly the same size. http://www.seadek.com/c-5-sheet-material.aspx
  14. Clear fly lines

    I have considered the Tropical Punch, but am interested in the clear tip aspect. I went ahead and ordered three line sizes of the clear tip, 8wt, 11wt and 12wt. Will likely be too cold here in NC to use near term, but will be using it during April in Pine Island and May in Islamorada and Key West. Rods will be Scott Meridian 8wt, Hardy Proaxis 11 & 12 wt, Orvis Helios 2 one piece 12 wt. Will post results. Most of the reviews I have found like the clear tip, but no one ever mentioned the weight, but online reviews need to be taken with a grain of salt. The lines I will be comparing to will be Airflo Tarpon 11 & 12 wt and Scientific Anglers Bonefish 8wt. Have given up on Rio lines due to poor handling/coiling. Would like to try Cortland and Monic lines, but do not want my life savings invested in fly lines.
  15. Clear fly lines

    Anyone use Airflo Ridge Clear Tip Tropical fly line? I like the idea of 12 ft of clear line, but the head wt is significantly heavier than the non clear tip lines. Worried that it may not cast well due to over powering the rod. I use the Airflo Tarpon line and like it.
