  1. On board charger

    I just placed an order 15 minutes ago for the Minn Kota I posted the link too. Time will tell!
  2. Tunes taking less room

    This is the one I just picked up. https://www.kicker.com/kmc2 Have a complete kicker system now with amp.
  3. On board charger

    I am in the same boat as you, trying to narrow it down between the Genius, Powermania or this Minn Kota https://www.walmart.com/ip/Minn-Kota-On-Board-Precision-Digital-Battery-Charger/33707335?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227023782275&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40971762512&wl4=pla-78914160152&wl5=1015116&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=33707335&wl13=&veh=sem
  4. New 24 just got her tower

    Agreed, nice!
  5. What's Really Important In Life..........

    Dino, You and many other members on this site have done what was intended to be done, raise good children and turn them into contributing members of society. Unfortunately many people cannot accomplish this task. However this is pretty impressive, a hell of an accomplishment so good job sir and congratulations! I am going through it right now, nursing as well and another starting college in 4 years with no clue what she plans on doing yet, but I have a feeling I'm paying for it!?
  6. New 505 lb Mercury V8 4 strokes

    Take a look at this for the new Merc's! https://www.boatingmag.com/new-mercury-marine-verado-fourstroke-and-pro-xs-outboards-v-6-and-v-8-models-from-175-300hp Color options! My brother in law (Master Mechanic for every company that owned Evinrude Johnson since the late 70's and still to this day) told me that the color of outboards was sacred! Easily identifiable just by color back in the day, and manufacturers did not tread there, welcome to the future!
  7. https://www.boatingmag.com/seastar-solutions-announces-next-generation-seastar-jackplates?cmpid=enewsh051818 Just got this in, looks like a quality product. I have not heard anything about this and now we are in Gen 2?
  8. New 505 lb Mercury V8 4 strokes

    That has to be dry weight, the Evinrude e-tec 300 is 539 pounds so after all the fluids they would probably weigh in the same. If Merc can pull off that power to weight ratio in a 4 stroke and it ends up having good reliability, everyone better look out. Not to mention pricing!
  9. Any do it yourself painters?

    Jscann, Awlgrip is not cheap paint so make sure you have everything ready to go and mixed correctly. Make sure you have the proper additive for brushing or spraying application. Make sure you have the right protection when using it, pretty serious stuff. Just got done spraying the console on my bay boat. The link will help you for the type of product you are using. Look at the top of the pages for the product you have and it will have the proper mixing instructions. Good Luck. http://www.awlgrip.com/ProdLit/applicationguide.pdf.
  10. Wet wood core

    Very possible, used a wood plug to fill in a hole from an older trolling motor or something and then glassed over it, apparently not to good though.
  11. New Yamaha XTO’s

    Nag, I have had a timeshare on Jewfish creek in Key Largo for almost 30 years. I can't begin to tell you the number of trip & quad engine boats coming through the ICW with the 375, 400, 575 Horsepower outboard engines hanging on the back. All different makes & models, the amount of money invested is sick! But I guess if you have the money!!
  12. Wet wood core

    The old "easier to ask for forgiveness than permission thing" huh? I'm the first one she blames everything on anyways so i am in a no win situation anyways, even though she is usually right!
  13. I responded to Heweymagoos with another post but deleted it. Not worth my effort, however I should be an Egret and take a ride on someone else's back though......
  14. Wet wood core

    If your not married, ^^^^^ I highly suggest you do not take mom's and if you are married........same suggestion! However smilemaker has a good point, you can also cut the corner off a ziplock bag or find empty caulking tubes (they sell them) and put a hose on the end. PC11 however is to thick and will not work in a caulking tube, but the west system six/10 is already in a caulking tube and will work with a hose.
  15. Man Dino, that thing is starting to look like a play ground, don't let any kids on that boat! I know they all serve a purpose for their owner which makes for a much more pleasant day of fishing. Who was it a few years back that had a jungle gym looking poling platform made for their boat for safely getting on & off, was it flatsdoctor? If it works for the owner and you have a good builder, all you need to do is imagine it!
