  1. Vroom Vroom, 21 Fusion with 250 SHO. UPDATE: 74.6 MPH!

    I would also like to see that grate. Awesome numbers and awesome looking fusion. (Time for a Nizpro tune?! )
  2. Careful running early morning

    Very sad situation.
  3. Factory 17" mid and low water pickup. Those inshore 115's are awesome engines.
  4. A compression test is very simple to do. It takes a good compression gauge, plug wrench and someone at the key switch if you do not have a remote start button. Make sure all plugs are out before pulling compression. No need to pull the boat to a mechanic.
  5. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    My dad always told me "Its better to ask for forgiveness than permission!"
  6. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    Fairly simple answer about emissions. "turning a 200 SHO or a 225 offshore into a 300 hp engine has zero impact in reliability, emissions or economy over buying a standard 300 hp engine from Yamaha in the first place".
  7. Repowering LT18?

    Like you said... That 130 is a great engine. I had one on my 98 Lappy 18 and after some prop testing years back it ran right at 51 MPH with one person, 48-49 with two guys. I never felt it lacked power. I have a friend with a Lappy and a carbed Vmax 150. He doesn't mess with props as much but the boat will easily run 52-53 MPH. It definitely squats a little more than mine did and it consumes more fuel making the same run as me. If weight is not a concern I would look for a 2.6L HPDI 150, 175 or 200. A little better fuel economy than the carbed or OX66 versions.
  8. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    I don't think you will get an honest answer out of Yamaha. From what I've read.. the 4.2L Yamaha SHO engines are identical besides the ECU. They all have identical bore and stroke. Why don't they specify that they are all the same? I have no idea. My guess is for coast guard ratings and for sales.
  9. another Buddy is gone.

    Sad to hear. I had a pedigree boxer growing up as a kid and teenager. Cancer took her down as well. She lived to be 14. What an awesome breed.
  10. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    My buddy will be sending his ECU out. Its a F225 and they claim 320hp and better fuel economy. The engine has 3500 hours (guide boat). It will be sort of an experiment to see how long it stays together.
  11. Pathfinder 23 DV (not mine)

    Strange... I’ve purchased two boats from GA. Neither with “title”. My Florida tag agency had no issues with a notarized bill of sale. Sorry to hear it didn’t work out.
  12. 2000 21' MA w/ 225 ox66, opinions?!

    All good advise here. The 21's especially older ones have issues with the 5lb putty falling apart between the floor supports and the floor. The signs are stress cracks or slight raised area on the cockpit floor (in front and behind the console). Also check the knees that connect stringers to the transom. Check all around the transom for cracking or signs of separation / delamination. There is a lot of plumbing that goes into these boats with three livewells. Turn everything on and stick your head in the bilge with a flashlight and look around. I'd also take a look at all the 19 year old wiring. Try every switch and use the ones that don't work as negotiation tool. Hard to inspect a bottom with bottom paint but I would still crawl under it and look for any signs of damage, hard hits to trailer or dock, hard beaches etc. Look for cracking around the chines and running pad. OX66 is a great combo for that rig. Spark, compression, fuel and make sure gear case spins with no noise and no wobble in the prop shaft. If there is no bearing noise when rotated by hand and it shifts in and out smoothly, there really isn't a need to check his gearlube (IMO), just change it along with all seals after you buy it.
  13. Water Witch Bilge Switch

    Thanks Mulligan. I will be very happy to get 5 plus years of service out of it. No more mechanical switches for me.
  14. Water Witch Bilge Switch

    Has anyone used one? I just ordered their 230 model (Much cheaper on EBay). I have just about had it with mechanical float switches. I am looking for a better alternative. Any pros or cons to the design? https://waterwitchinc.com/product/model-230-series-bilge-switch/
