  1. Boat Covers

    NCTribute brings up a good point...My cover is dark gray which was the only option available when I bought mine. I keep my boat under a 20 x 30 pole barn and only the very front of the trailer sees the sun. My cover is mainly just to keep the dust and bird droppings out of the boat. I can't speak to how well it will last in the sun, but not much does.
  2. Boat Covers

    Hey LIU, I would think so, but let me confirm this evening. I know I pull the front of the cover down over my winch and winch strap (just to keep the sun off it) and then have a little slack in the rear that I take up with the straps back there. I'll take some pictures tonight and post them here....Of course if it isn't pouring when I get home like it did last night.
  3. Boat Covers

    I bought one from Amazon for my 23 and it fits really well. It has a pocket for the motor, which is way too small for mine...I don't think it's even big enough for a smaller 4 cyl. 2 stroke engine....maybe a 50 horse. Anyhow, other than that it fits perfectly and is nice quality. This is it Classic Accessories Boat Cover
  4. Pliers / Sheath

    Ben King is the man. I can't seem to link here from Facebook (it's on my end, MOD). Search King Leather Works on Facebook or I can put you in touch with him via phone number; message me through the forum if you need his number. He is located in Jasper, FL which is between Jacksonville and Tallahassee, on I-10.
  5. New 22 TRS on order... few questions

    It's plenty fast for the family. Not to mention that 150 sips fuel! Maybe when it's time to repower you can look at some options then or when the kids get older and you're allowed to go faster. My wife doesn't like going over 30 unless we're outrunning a storm. My son is almost 3 and anything over 35 seems to bother his eyes....Even when my buddies go fishing, I rarely run over 40. The power and ability to go faster or get out of the way in a hurry sure is nice though.

    Morgan is a good looking Viz! Hang in there...You're in a good place, as bad as it is. whichway, are you at home now or getting reports from neighbors? We didn't get Irma directly, but we had a lot of rain the week leading up to it. Couple that with centuries old oak trees and a little breeze, it was pretty bad. Wishing the best for all of you dealing with this mess. I know my whole office is watching the actual storm on the live loop posted in this thread. Our hearts are breaking for NC and the surrounding area.
  7. 2004 22 TE 2014 F150 SOLD!

    I'll start a thread soon, but after wet sanding with 600, then 2000, and compounding out.....here's a glimpse. Going to hit it with a polishing compound, polish and then Collenite Fleet Wax.
  8. Pliers / Sheath

    Looks good Todd! How do you like that model of VS plier? I don't think they make them anymore...? I keep thinking about buying them when they pop up on eBay, but they look small to me. I like the black with blue thread . Did Ben add a loop for a lanyard or do you not use one? I also had a small drain hole added to the inside/hip side of mine. My boat doesn't get skinny, so I wade all the floods, while some people pole through them.
  9. 2012 24 TRS 300 yamaha prop

    I have a 23 with a 250, don't hesitate to run a Merc Bravo 1 FS in 22 pitch on the 23. It's a great combination!

    My house is already full, but I do have room for a few boats (non covered area) if anyone needs/wants to drop their rig off as they travel through Jacksonville, FL, feel free. I don't think there's enough room to squeeze more than a 25' through, but up to 25' and no more than 11' trailer/total width, you're good to go. All fenced in back yard in quiet neighborhood. Message me here or call/text me at nine zero four 4 4 nine four zero 9 0 Many thoughts, prayers and well wishes to all impacted.
  11. 2004 22 TE 2014 F150 SOLD!

    I was talking to Ben when you ran him down with the switch for the jack plate. He's all amped up to get it home and clean it up. I don't think he'll do the forum "thing" much, but I will post progress pics. soon. Glad it worked out for both of you!
  12. 2019 22 TRS Engine choices

    Well said. My buddies last name is Veal, and in my circle we call it "Veal's theory on 4 wheel drive" which is, "I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it." I have a 4 wheel drive as well, and use it almost every time I take my boat out....it keeps me from tearing up my back yard when it's wet or damp. I also have a 250 SHO and can run 60+ at will, but I don't. I use that power to haul 6-8 people around and/or take my kid, his cousins and all their toys to the sandbar...with a grill, easy up, 2 coolers, chairs, etc. I bought it for cruise speed, low end grunt (tubing or whatever when he's older) and on occasion, getting to the fishin' hole before most folks. Think about 98% of what you'll use your boat for and go from there...Seems like most of the hours I see pulled from engines are idle hours and hours between 3-4000 rpm. Happy hunting!

    Pretty boat and it's the right color. I hope it sells soon for you.

    Sounds like my buddy Ben is going to be joining the Pathfinder family soon. Looking forward to helping him polish this thing up and seeing it on the water in Jax.
