    Wanted to Buy - Master Angler 18

    Age has nothing to do with what shape they are in....mine is a 1995 and was garage kept...when I bought her from a estate sale, the inside of the hatches still smelled like fiberglass and she had not been run in 5 years.....took about $1K in repair to get her up and running another $1K for trailer axel..but, I only paid $11K for the skiff....so, take your time, but, have the 100's ready when the time comes. dc

    Group 27 vs Group 31 -24v Trolling motor

    31's are ALWAYS better if you have the room and can handle the weight... I am running 27's DEKA AGM new (this year) with a 80# Minkotta ultera...i troll normally 100 + yards to my spots in Choko to be quiet and move all day...never have i had less than 1/2 battery bars...i don't fight a current, but, if I did, it would be 31's..there is a simple calculation on the web to help estimate how much you will use depending on power...it's simple math... BTW, always consider if you dont' have good air circ. when charging a wet cell will give off a lot of acid fumes and it will corrode the inside of your console. dc

    Kid Friendly Rails for 24 Pathfinder

    The earlier Pathfinders had this on them...not the most beautiful look, but, functional... I think your idea has merit....just have a good welder make you a simple set of railings....and since you know you will be eventurally taking them off, they can be designed accordingly....in fact, depending on how you design them, you might be able to even put them on and off with a set of connectors so when you are doing the hard core fishing thing without the family, it can be off and on.... There is no comparison between the Dauntless and Pathfinder....when it comes to shallow water design and fishing... dc

    Mounting on board charger... whos done it?

    Fin, If you have a concern about the PVC board....go 1" thick and then use a 1/4" backing of aluminum which you can then epoxy to the back (larger than the charger) and then through bolt. It for sure will not be coming off that..... BTW, on my MA17, I just mounted it on a PVC board and on to the floor of the console...up off the wet floor and been doing great for 2 years. DC

    Pathfinder 17T or other classic

    I owned a 17T and was going to do the same a few years ago. However, I went in a different direction when I found my current Mistress a MA17 (doesn't run shallow)..... The 17T is THE SHALLOWEST RUNNING MBG EVER BUILT....hands down; however, they are not designed for open water or even a strong bay chop. It's a fun skiff that you can just fish, get dirty and then pressure wash and put away....if that's how you want to use it. If you want something not too expensive - they can be found for rebuilds for about $7-8K...some have new stringers, others, do not...I'd go with a min of 60hp, you'll find some with a 50 and it's adequate...they most all have two strokes that will run forever....good fun....there was a really nice rebuild about a year ago on the micro skiff thread...it was a light blue completely redone....stunning... They were built from 1998 or so to 2000, and are really a great skiff for what they are designed for.....backcountry, shallow, low chop, fishing... I had a side console and really liked the design and extra room... Good luck..... DC
