    Beautiful Grandkids, Doc !!
  2. Navionics Platinum Chip VS Florida Marine Tracks

    I look at the FMT chip as a safety item, and essential gear for the hard-bottomed areas around the State. Plus, you can see different tracks to get the chop on the right part of your bow. Hewey, Sorry for that public flogging. I had not used the warning shortcut in this new software.. Didn't know that box would show over your post. I won't use that anymore.. Just holler in a PM.. ModM
  3. Back in the Family

    Great to have you back, Dave !! Hope your shoulder holds up through a bunch of big fish !! Marc
  4. 2000 17ma prop and motor height?

    Couple things first: No jackplate, right ? Is the boat repowered ? Could that motor have come off another hull, previously mounted differently.. ? We have a whole bunch of MA owners that will log on sooner or later, and help you with that question.. Mod
  5. Prop question....

    I agree.. Too much prop.. What year is the hull ? The weight has changed over the years, and the best prop advice will be year-specific.
  6. New 2400 TRS Live well pump(s) failure

    Easy, boys ! If you only knew the problems associated with outsourced accessories. I can tell you the factory wrestles with pumps, jackplates and switches, that they purchase as 'the best'.. They strive to install the best hardware and pumps, and they get let down. One pump brand outsourced their pump manufacturing and had a big batch of defective housings made. They balked on the warranty costs the factory pushed back on them. So, a truck full of the pumps got sent back and another brand was chosen. Same with jackplates. These fails will happen, but they try like heck to install the best stuff in the first place. Please be patient Mod

  9. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    "The Nizpro supercharger. Is it going to cost you the advertised price, I doubt it. What about reliability, don't really know yet. Are we and the customers having some serious fun with them, absolutely! Basically, you have to have some disposable income to add whatever the motor needs after it's on. For example, 10 hours in prop testing, lower unit modifications, maybe power assist steering, solid motor mounts? There are a lot of variables that go into one of these. I tell everyone to plan on 15K and hope it comes in lower, it may come in more? This unit is definitely not a tinker toy with a lot of research and development going into it. " The whole paragraph tells me that the Supercharger may cost $15K by the time you are done with lower unit mods, prop testing, premium fuel, etc.

    Nice catches !! Thanks for posting the pics !! Mod
  11. 2018 Keys MOT at the Breezy Palms

    I was looking at the marine forecasts! NO WAY will we be running across to the capes from Marathon! We will be easing out nearby for Tarpon, Grouper, Snapper, and perhaps force our way out past the reefs and drag some baits for what ever may bite! Everyone have a safe trip! Bubba B

    Thank you very much !
  14. 2018 Keys MOT at the Breezy Palms

    Looking forward to the OT and meeting the new members there ! For those not familiar with Breezy Palms' approach.. This is a map I drew up years ago showing the route into the basin at Breezy Palms.. The basin is surrounded by flats and rock jetties. The bottom of the 'channel' into the basin is hard coral. The channel marks in July consisted of two white PVC poles. They mark the deepest part of the channel: maybe 16" deep at lower tides. This is the only route to come into Breezy without tearing up the flats. You can jump on plane or shut down if you run the channel. You need to idle out about 150 yds beyond the PVC poles before you jump. It is shallow and hard way out. Look over the side to decide when. This applies to the Cobias and Pathfinders.. You guys with tunnel boats and microskiffs can zoom in on any tide. At half tide or higher, you can run the channel in most boats, Just jump on plane in the basin well before you get near the PVC poles.. Same coming in.. Drop off plane 150 yds out from the PVC poles. On the map.. stay away from the red x's. Those are rocks you can start to see at mid tide. They are hidden at high tide. If you have booked at La Siesta, they have a similar approach to their docks. Safe travels and see you there !! Marc
  15. I just spotted this in the Tournament Section !! Hot off the press for our huge Owners' family in the Greater Tampa area !!

  16. 2013 Pathfinder 24 TRS

    Stunning 24. I love the color scheme. GLWTS !
  17. New 22 TRS on order... few questions

    They are worth good money these days.. I would secure the replacement motor first, and then sell the 150. There is a good market for them. Many get sold here in the classifieds. Your rigger could help sell it as well. M-1
  18. 1991 Hewes Redfisher 18 with kevlar hull

    HappyLappy.. If you could, can you take a good photo of each page in full frame, and post them in the Hewes Product Information section under Hewes ? Those original documents are priceless for other Lappy owners.. Thanks in advance, Mod Marc
  19. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Did that Permit put a little tension on your fishin line, Ralph ? Beautiful fish ! Congratulations. Marc
  20. Plantation is a beautiful City with good schools and safe neighborhoods available. Maybe some Broward guys can chime in with helpful suggestions. Just be aware that car insurance is the highest in the State, property taxes are higher, and traffic is the pits at rush hour. There are guys that steal Yamaha 4 stroke boats.. who live real close. On the plus side, the location is convenient to the Keys, West Coast and the Gulfstream off Lauderdale.. Marc
  21. Updated *Its UP* Little blue house that could

    We are all glad that your life is back in order, Scott. Mod

    What a trip !! Beautiful Trout.. M-1
  23. 2200v transom issue

    No, Have not seen a transom redo.. Your motor is too big and it is slung back on the jackplate like a lever. The hull was not designed for that. You probably ought to remove both, and drop down in HP. M-M
  24. Well I've been replaced lol

    Outstanding photos ! WTG Dads !
  25. Mercury

    The HPS has a jackplate, so the 20 or 25" lower units are both available. Plenty of HPS hulls with F300's on them. Mod-M
