    Yes, but this is a 185 for sale with a 200 on it...Not bashing the gentleman's boat what so ever, just wanted to confirm the max HP. And some insurance co will not insure a boat that is overpowered. Thanks for the replies.

    Trim Tab Welds break

    You got lucky. My 99 21 master angler had it happen. Ripped the actuator out and took the entire assembly including the fiberglass cover for the recessed trim tabs. Luckily Skip was able to get me a replacement Trim Tab cover as that is a molded part. It also pulled the wire out and snatched all of the pump wires off the bait well and bilge pump. Lenco tabs with about 8 tiny spot weld is what let go at 55 MPH. All that was left was a bunch of holes. Felt almost like I hit something.

    Thank you. I grew up restoring cars with my dad... I was sanding many of late nights when I was a youngster. Now I'm doing these projects myself, but with lots of help from my dad still and he's in his 70's. I'd say at almost 40 I know about half of what he does. The boat was never used after the damage. The previous owner was coming in from fishing when he hit a submerged floating piling. He kept driving to the ramp at low speed and put it on the trailer. I honestly think the voids are from the factory and the layers of glass were never properly bonded. Maybe too little resin, maybe the

    What a project. Like previously stated, Living through your resto at your dad's shop. Beautiful pieces of art everywhere. Love reading through this thread and can't wait to see the final project. Crazy that you have that many voids in the hull, do you think it was because the damage and then not fixed and it just spread for continuous use and not getting repaired right away...?

    At 210k miles your 2010 transmission is more reliable than the brand new 10 speeds that GM and Ford co-engineered together on the current models. I know first hand of several of the new 10 speeds that has crapped the bed and some never even had a trailer on the ball.

    Yes sir, it's on the agenda. Like you said, she looks real nice from everywhere I can see but I'm definitely going to pressure test it. Was thinking of just going ahead and replacing it... but... I'm really on the fence about respraying the entire non-skid. It's in great shape so I'd prefer to skip that step if i can. I am planning to do my wiring to make it less of a headache if I do have to de-rig the console in the future. But we'll see the results of the pressure test shortly. Josh B.

    Sea... I will tell you, on Saturday, I wanted to run the Ghost to check out the over-heating....all solved, with COTO..... We were at Chokoloskee at 0600, boat in the water at 615am..we had a second cup of coffee and wait for light to run the S curve and head out...there were maybe 6 boats at the ramp...so, I thought, should be a good day..... I was excited....a week after the full moon disaster of the previous week with Mike.....4 foot tide....outgoing.....hooraaah.... By 0730, we had moved 6 times without a strike......oh, I'm sorry, one ladyfish...who I think was lost...

    Josh, Have been able to assess the fuel tank...you have a 2003 which means an 18 year old fuel cell... You might want to do a full pressure test on it while it's empty....as you know, what I thought was a simple fuel cell replacement turned into a massive rebuild of the area between the stringers and new foam....an extra few $$$$ in labor and glass...but, I know she's sold as a rock.... Just thinking with her in this position....easier to do now than later.....my tank was 27 years old....not leaking...but, pitting in a few key areas was forming and we estimated it was maybe anot

    The engine is the V8 5.4. The tranny is stock, and has not been serviced and flushed on a regular basis, unfortunately! Tires an brakes are good, but the tranny is where I’m concerned!

    Good looking work. That’s gonna be a great hull when you’re finished.
  20. I am selling my 2021 Pathfinder 2500. Reason for selling is my parents health failing and my wife and I are their only care givers. The boat has 21 hours, just had the 20 hour service done last week. The boat has almost all options and upgrades except for a tower. I am not looking at the paperwork, I will try and list options from memory. Options, or most of them anyway. Simrad 12inch touch screen with radar, Ulterra spot-lock trolling motor, JL 6 speaker audio system, Hard T-top with electronics box, VHF radio, macerator in fish box, Blade Power Pole (single), sea deck under gunne

    A little progress, but not as much as I hoped. The damaged areas were all ground down to remove any loose glass. When I got into the edge along the strake it's pretty clear why this chunk of glass ripped off the bottom. There was a huge void between the woven glass and the outer layer of chop strand that the gelcoat is affixed to. To me this is nothing but poor craftsmanship from the factory. I'm big MBG fan, but maybe this boat was put together on a Friday afternoon and the cervezas were calling. The gap between the layers was 1/4 to 1/2 thick in places. You could tap on surrounding areas and

    Your boat motor combo always performed best for me with jackplate about 2-3 inches up. You shouldn't be throwing a rooster tail, you'll want your prop wash just below the surface. Some boats do get best speeds throwing a rooster tail, but not this one. Best hole shot is with motor trimmed all the way down, jackplate all the way down. (tabs aren't really needed, but can put them down if you're trying to jump out of a hole in short distance). Once you're on plane make sure trim tabs are all the way up, then raise jackplate to 2-3". Then trim motor up, keep trimming up until you start

    Is my OCD the issue or

    These "pie plate" access holes in general are pure garbage. I'm probably more OCD than most, but the fact that a brand new ($50-60-80k+ now) boat has these cheap access holes in the deck is an abomination. I personally think they should be molded fiberglass hatches if it's necessary. The pie holes just look cheap. That being said, if it were my boat I would remove it, glass it, gelcoat it and apply my SeaDek over it. If I needed access in the future I would make a larger access hatch under the console, however big I could fit and go from there. Josh B.
