    trim tabs required?? Light Tackle 20 200 SHO

    I don’t think there’s a planing hull boat made that wouldn’t benefit from trim tabs.
  2. I think what you really need to do, is ask yourself how in-love with your LT 20 are you. If you can imagine yourself upgrading in two years I wouldn't spend $20K on it. Get it reliable and sell it when you can afford to upgrade, if that’s now then do it now, if it’s in two years tHen do it in two years. Either way it’s an old flats boat and with very few exceptions you’re gonna take a beating on upgrades you do to it. Unless it’s something your emotionally attached to (or a late 90s HB whipray) dumping $20K into it is going to be a brutal proposition financially.

    Trolling motor V. anchor

    When the problem persists after the anchor is removed/repositioned, the next question will be “how close is your trolling motor to your bow cleat?”🤨

    No More Muffs Fo Me !!!

    Gotcha. I with you. I think about dunking the motor in the canal outside the ENP gate down here but I just can’t get motivated to do it. I’m liking it.

    No More Muffs Fo Me !!!

    Do you flush it on muffs or use this water tank? The reason I ask is that It looks like the all of the water is going back into the tank, recirculating it back through the motor, instead of running clean water through the motor and getting rid of the salt water.

    I have a pair of Odyssey PC1500 34Ms that are 9 years old and still going. They’re pretty expensive but man these things will not die.

    Outboard air intake & pollen?

    I’ve never thought about it, nor heard of it so I personally wouldn’t worry about it. I would think putting any kind of filter on the air box would play havoc with your ECU trying to get the fuel/air mixture correct.

    18HPX Palm Bch boat show special

    I totally agree. When you see the pics and video of the new factory it’s a wonder that the MBG can pay the bills selling them for as little as they do. It’s a testament to the leadership’s business acumen for sure. There’s really very little margin in this business no matter what the purchase price.

    Not even close to the same thing, in materials (carbon/Kevlar vs. glass) or build process (traditional lay-up vs. resin infusion/vacuum) Someone in Ft Myers needs to post the price on that Carbon HPS 23! I think that would be a better price per foot comparison. I agree though, they have become amazingly expensive, not just MBG stuff but all of them.

    It’s all about perspective and what your into. I had a friend tell me the same thing when I bought mine... when we were done hanging out he and his wife drove up to Ocala in a Denali dually to put a $25K deposit on a horse that wasn’t conceived yet.

    Yowzaaa. The wife and I went down to Caribee Marine’s mini boat show and I saw somewhat the same deal, couldn’t believe what they were going for. Good on ya MBG if people are paying that. Can you imagine what a new Marquesas cost?

    Tire Question

    If was a Maxxis 8008 guy forever until last year. I had a tread seperate and while it was covered under warranty the nearest authorized dealer who could change the tire under warranty was in the Tampa area. I live in Homestead. They are great tires no doubt and I think that was my 3rd or 4th pair but I switched to the Goodyear Endurance radials Incase I had another issue... there’s Goodyear shops everywhere.
  15. I’m with Hurricane, for a couple reasons. 1. I remove anti-siphon valves upon purchase of a boat and have never had an issue. 2. When VST (vapor separator tank) filters get clogged it affects high RPM operation as well, seems like a limp-mode at high RPM. The VST can affect operation at all RPM and starting. All fuel passes thru the VST filter before being picked up by the high-pressure pump which is mounted inside the VST. I’ve never seen a SHO with the cowling off but if there’s a low-pressure fuel pump mounted in the valve cover try this... Remove the outlet fuel line going to the VST from the low pressure pump mounted on the valve cover. Get some fuel line and connect the the output the the outlet of the pump and run it into a container. Crank the engine. The pump is mechanically actuated off of a cam lobe so cranking the engine will actuate the pump just as if the engine was running. If no fuel comes out of the low pressure filter then replace it.
