    2018 Maverick HPX-S

    Sharp looking boat, why selling such a new boat?

    2019 Pathfinder 22 Electronics

    I looked at the Garmin unit above, when I was down in Ft. Lauderdale last week. Am considering it in the 10" size to replace my 4208 unit. Was considering the Simrad NSS evo3 but was not impressed with the mapping detail. The new Garmin BlueChart G3 maps look very good. I think Garmin is stepping up their game since they bought Navionics.

    Replacing Garmin thoughts?

    What's the standard chart that comes with the NSS Evo3? I'm interested in either the 9" or 12" with a FMT chart, but curious about what the standard chart is. Simrad site says it's a C-Map US Enhanced Basemap.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I had it done on the gulf coast in Inglis. If you're in NE FL anywhere near Jax there should be lots of places to get some quotes that might be closer to you.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Around $2500. I would think you could get cheaper if you're in an area with more shops and can get multiple quotes. I was hoping for around $1500 but bit the bullet anyway.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Got the boat back from the shop after having 9 years of accumulated oyster rash repaired on the hull, and a new intake cheese grater installed. Old one bent back after screw heads rusted off.

    Replacing Garmin thoughts?

    Timely info for me too. My Garmin 4208 wouldn't come on yesterday in St. Augustine. Gotta troubleshoot today and see if it's a wiring connection or the unit itself. The Simrad 9" Evo3 looks sweet.

    Bait & Release Well Plumbing 2003 RF18

    Had the same issue with mine, handles rusted off with valves in open position. Also had a cluster of three valves, three strainers, and three pumps and the valves were so far back it was nearly impossible to get at them quickly if ever needed to in an emergency. Ended up putting new Groco stainless valves in, and instead of a separate feed and strainer for each pump I ran one valve more towards the stern with a longer piece of pipe so I can now easily access it. The other two valves stay closed and have a stainless plug in them as they are no longer used. No grass problems for me either but decided to keep one strainer in the system anyway, better than three. All the pumps are now easy to access too cause they are all moved back to the transom area. No problems with the livewells filling, and I only use one at a time anyway. I just decided to do this since I had to replace the valves. And yes, what a pain in the butt reaching back there to do all the work, but worth it in the end.

    Reds loving the warm weather.

    Nice fish! Water must be clear now too. You finding them on the darker mud flats? I gotta get over there when my boat gets out of the shop.

    Improved Cheese Grater

    Good idea on a maintenance list. Just a pain to get to it because half is under the bunk. Need a lifting set-up like SCFD rtrd.

    Improved Cheese Grater

    Been watching this thread and I'll be interested to see what you guys come up with for a final design. Meanwhile, I've got a brand new SS factory cheese grater sitting in my garage which needs to be installed. Ordered from MBG website (for a Pathfinder), I'm hoping it will fit a 21MA. The screw heads rusted off the original grater, and the grater plate actually folded back on itself, either from water pressure while underway, or the lip catching on the trailer bunk when loading up. Have any of you had the screw heads rust off the grater? Going to go back with the same size SS screws, but is there anything to keep that from happening again? Coat with Sharkhide, cover with 4200 or something?

    Trailer brakes advice needed

    FYI, in addition to the Kodiak SS disc rotors and calipers, I found they also had disc brake pads with SS backing plates. Would recommend them as well.

    The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Fished Cedar Key yesterday and was surprised to catch a nice 30" Snook. Not many are caught this far north. Released it and on the next cast hooked into another one, probably 24" but it got around my trolling motor and broke off. Good topwater trout bite earlier in the day, lots of blowups that they missed the lure too.

    New Axles

    Good question on measuring mileage. I just went to the Ameratrail parts site to see what it say there. It's 6 year/100,000 miles, so 6 years will be the time frame for me. Here's the link that shows the price for them too. https://ameratrailparts.com/collections/hubs/products/5-lug-vortex-hub-w-6-year-100-000-mile-warranty-packed-greased-and-ready-to-roll

    Help with Yamaha Fuel Gauge

    I had the same problem with the swing arm type sending units. Replaced mine with a WEMA sending unit in the picture. Use a wood stick and measure the inside depth of your tank, subtract an inch to keep it off the bottom, and order that length if you decide to go with this type.
