    What type anchor fits this anchor locker

    I haven't tried a Mantus. I have a Seaclaw. Never had an issue holding in current. I also run NO chain. I've heard of others using chain with a Seaclaw but I've never had a need for it.

    Like Dino says, This is the anchor to have. http://www.reelcharterfishing.com/index.html
  4. Very nice. If I ever went fourstroke that would be the motor I'd look for (With a full power Nizpro tune of course). Post some pics and performance numbers once you get her broken in and propped.
  5. Big flats boats make great family cruisers. I've been in all kinds of boats and a few different Pathfinders. I prefer my family upfront, seated where I can see them. Very safe platform when you add a couple E-sea rider bean bags.

    Custom poling platform ?

    I had a 1998 18RF for years. Same platform as yours. I had no issues removing my cowling. I also ran a 6" jackplate with it. I did have to be down a bit on the plate to get the cowling off. I like the look of deck mounted platforms but I don't like how they take up a lot of deck space. The design of the older Hewes platform kept it over the transom and off the deck to optimize space.

    Best Charts for Garmin

    I actually find this informative and useful. Their charts are inferior to others. Its a known fact. I love Garmins cause they are user friendly but they definitely lack precision mapping. When I upgrade again I will explore different options. OP, If you stay with Garmin go with the G3 with latest update. Its the best they have so far.

    18 Master Angler re-power

    Adding oil is easier than changing it! You can buy a lot of Pennzoil Premium Plus (Cheaper than Yamalube) for the price of that repower! LOL

    Inverted trim tab buttons

    Sounds to me they are wired correctly. You push the switch in the position you want the boat to respond. Example: Push the starboard rocker forward and the port tab should go down to push starboard bow down to the right. Some people wire tabs "backwards" so each switch works with the tab on its same side but that is not the norm.

    Post your MA pics here!

    My daughter was invited to a pool party on the Coral Gables waterway. It was a nice day so we decided to go by boat. E-sea Rider bean bags transform a hardcore fishing machine into a family cruiser (and you still got dem gunnels!).

    Porta Bracket question.

    Bobs is synonymous with high performance and boat racing. Much more than I would think Porta is. I like Porta plates a lot but they do have a bunch of setback so that's why you see them mostly used on bigger Florida west coast bay boats. If I remember right, the gentlemen selling the black 21 MA with the green seadek ran one for while. Perhaps reach out to him for details. I know he went back to a Bobs.

    Keys Trip / Islamorado Question

    Lots of ways to dodge the wind on the Bayside. Look for deeper channels and cuts with some current. Definitely run across to flamingo if the wind allows. Lots of good restaurants on the water (Loreleis, Islamorada fish company, Robbies AKA Hungry Tarpon, Marker 88 etc).

    Repower opinion

    Having a manual really helps. Ebay may have it. Take your time. Like Muddy said, Use heat and "knocker loose" on any stubborn bolts / nuts. You will need a powerhead gasket and I would check your top rubber motor mounts while you are in there. You can use length of chain / bolts and fender washers screwed into the flywheel to lift it off unless you have access to the correct lifting ring.
