    How Lower Outboard When Trim Stuck

    There is a screw on the side of the motor to release the fluid, and then retighten screw. This will help you get it down. Otherwise it is a manual turn the screw and lift up on engine to raise it, until you get the problem fixed.

    WTB 18 Redfisher

    Seriously considering downsizing from current bay boat back to flats boat. I keep coming back to an 18’ Redfisher. I want something smaller and more manageable to get into our creeks with my 4 year old but still make momma happy enough to go to cruise some and go to sandbar. If anyone has one or knows of one for sale, I’d appreciate leads. Few years old is fine, but no problems or projects please. Budget is around $35k. Any other similar boats I might be ignoring please send my way too.

    I feel for anyone that lives with a close waterway with docks ( even though I’ll never be able to afford a place like that lol) but I agree with that homeowner that there should be a no wake zone in those areas. I think that everybody should have respect for them and their property. Especially in housing areas you never know if those families have their children swimming off the docks etc..etc..

No oyster rash Motor is in excellent condition and runs perfect. Hull is dark teal in color. If you want the hull to shine like new you would just need to wet sand and buff certain areas to remove scratches and bring back

    Condensation developing during non use hours

    Thanks DblPly, I was also talking with a buddy and he now leaves his hatches open as well. Probably doesn't help having a black cover also which intensifies the heat and with the cool air under the floor it's just the perfect scenario for it.

    Condensation developing during non use hours

    Racer, I have the same issue as well and fish only saltwater . I give my boat a full wash down after any fishing and wait until it dries before covering it. And still have the issue. One thing I might do is have vents put in my cover as well as some inexpensive damp rid buckets placed inside. With this ever changing weather of hot days/ cooler days condensation is kinda normal. I know there are other members with the same issue and if they’ve found a way , I know they’ll share....David

    Condensation developing during non use hours

    That’s pretty common, I put PVC spacers(1” x2”) in my hatches to allow free air flow when I have mine covered ... I put them in the gutters and they keep the hatches open about an inch...

    Finally got a new switch panel

    Thanks, couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Now I need to find a dang windshield to replace original. Hardest thing in the world to source

    Finally got a new switch panel

    Really nice panel and switches. I have used New Wire before with great satisfaction.
  14. So I wasn't sure if other boaters have the same issue that I am experiencing while having the boat covered during non-use hours. After a days outing I will come home and depending on the amount of slime or dirt, I will rinse off the boat and sometimes perform a full soap bath. Currently my boat is a freshwater boat only so no need for a full soap down after every use. Anyhow, I have noticed that when I get ready to leave the house and pull the cover off as I open and close lockers and hatches there seems to be condensation and moisture in areas of the boat. If I leave my rain suite in the b

    I attach my kill switch like when I get in my car and the first thing I do is lock in my seat belt. I fish alone 99% of the time and I can't afford to have something like that happen. I have a plan before I leave. Wife knows which lake I am at, which ramp I leave from what type of fishing I will be doing that day and whether I will or will not have cell signal. I check in every chance I can also when cell signal is strong enough. That video scared the crap out of me when I saw that boat coming at the sea wall. I thought it wall going to jump the wall.

    You will know if it has been taken care of when you walk up to it. The big things on any old boat not just pathfinder is the floor, the transom and the compression on the engine. Walk on the flood .. use the anti cavitation plate on the motor push down with your foot. Then check compression on the motor.

    Great video! Unsure if it was operator error or malfunction but there are some very lucky people! I just recently started wearing my kill switch tether as I usually stand up with one hand on the steering wheel and the other on my grab rail after a passing battle wagons wake came close to making me go over the side. Again great video!.....David

    Looks like something gave way or if it was operator error it was pretty blatant. He could have been killed but did take a nice tumble on the water. Kill switch people! https://www.wpbf.com/article/surveillance-video-captures-out-of-control-boat-smashing-into-docks/35604460

    2000 1810

    Going to look at 2000 model 1810. I have never looked at 20 year old hull before. I would appreciate any tips on what would be considered normal wear and tear and what would be some warning signs. Thanks for your help.
  22. I ordered a panel from New Wire Marine and had Boattronics install it. I was sick of the original double rocker switches and I couldn’t read any of the old labels so it was time. Each accessory now has a switch and breaker. I moved the gauges down to provide the extra room. Also added a dimmer on panel since we run at night a good bit. Highly recommend New Wire panels. Now I just need a second simrad evo3 9”(let me know if y’all see one for sale)

    South Florida Yamaha Mechanic Recommendations

    John @ Maximum Outboards in North Lauderdale / Pompano. Off Dixie and Commercial. He's done many members....it's him and his wife....they handle all the FLL police boats......he's honest....he's one of those mechanics who say, "if it's not broke, don't replace it" I've had two experiences with him and nothing but great results.
