    Awesome boat and awesome motor choice! Gemlux makes some of the best latches I have found. I replaced all 12 on my MA and love em. I can’t help you with the cut outs as mine were a direct replacement. Good luck
  3. Strongly considering selling my PF. All of my fishing buddies have upgraded their CCs to bigger rigs and nobody has a boat for skipping around the skinny waters between Naples and the Keys. My PF has been decent but it’s not the ultimate setup for the glades. I know the older MAs are great boats but there aren’t many to choose from. What else in the more modern options is there to chose from? In short, if you could buy one boat for the 10K, what would it be? Consider day trips and overnight/camping.

    T Top for 2001 Maverick 21' MA

    No need for it. Large umbrella in the console rod holder. It will fit folded in the rod locker. Don't ruin your boat!

    2005 22t front pitch well loosing prime

    I have had an issue with an airlock in the hose from the pump to the nozzle in the live well. I found this video from rule explaining how airlocks prevent priming. sure enough I found my that my hose from the pump had a dip in the run that allowed water to stay there and thus preventing the pump to prime the system. The system would prime after running due to the water pressure from running would be able to compress the air and get the water moving again. This may not be your issue but something to check out. I have not had a priming issue since I adjusted the feed hose so that there were no places where water could stand in the line.

    1999 hewes bonefisher 16' fair price ?

    That will probably be something you will get people on both sides of the spectrum on. Based on you saying it runs fine off of the fuel in it(sea trialed)? If it smells and looks good, I would buy a good Racor fuel filter with a sight bowl at the bottom that you can drain, make sure the filter on the engine is new and run it. Would check both filters regularly and if any issues replace both of them amd drain the rest and dispose of it or use it in something else. There is a post on fuel polishing in the general forum.

    T-Top for Sale

    thank you. It’s a nice top, and the price reflects the amount of time my wife will allow it to stay in the backyard before I have to sleep under it at night. 😬

    Thanks, going to change all fluids water pump etc and maybe put a new carb on it per my mechanics recommendation. Taking to fiber glass guy next week for minor repairs and recommendations. Only other thing I am concerned about and I am going to talk to mechanic is fuel? From all I know is she was last in the water almost 2 years ago. Starts up right way and idles good so far. Said that fuel had stabilizer added... should I do anything such as octane boost and just run it? Or should I look into the old pump and dump. It has a almost full tank... gas smells normal not bad.

    Loose console

    Seems to me that the raised part attached to the floor is just fiberglass. I would be concerned that screws would eventually wallow out and you will be in the same situation. What if you put some backing underneath the fiberglass lip. You could use 1" square aluminum tubing and then thru bolt. It would be more work, but you would never have a bolt back out or wallow out.

    New Wax on the Market from a Startup

    I had a few e-mails back and forth with the gentlemen. Brush/wipe on and allow to sit in the sun and the gelcoat absorbs it filling all the porous holes and eliminates oxidation and prevents any future oxidation. Price is reasonable he says he had in tested in Florida for below the waterline and prevented growth, same application. I am just passing it along as a FYI, I might give it a shot! ***I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH THIS COMPANY OR PRODUCT JUST THOUGHT I WOULD PASS IT ALONG*** They make an Arizona hot car wax you apply the same way, no rubbing or buffing, let the sun do the work. The Last Effort Garage link at the bottom is where to order in Florida. By the way; you do not need to have a facebook account to open and view the Boat Wax link.

    I would bet he is talking lug nuts. Stainless steel is probably too soft to press into the hub and handle the torque placed on them. I would think most are a hardened steel.

    2005 22t front pitch well loosing prime

    Can you send a pic of the bilge and how the strainers and pumps are oriented? If the shutoff valve, strainer and pump are oriented vertical, it's possible that the pump is too far above the water line to get and keep a prime. Additionally, the pump has to push the water a long way to the front pitch-well. I had the same problem with both live-wells when I bought my boat. I started by adding a 90 degree elbow to the stem coming from the pick-up. This oriented everything else in a horizontal position instead of vertical. So, the shutoff, strainer and pump are below the water line. Never had a problem after that.

    I have same boat and year. Check pump to make sure debris not in pump and pump still working, spinning. I ended up removing my strainers completely, upgraded to 1100gph rule, and water still trickles in to front pitch well. Good luck

    How did you get the lugs on? Do they press in and out?

    Automatic vs non automatic bailer

    That's funny!! I have read about sunken vessels before. Most sink at the dock and the cause is faulty bilge pumps. That's why I have two independent bilge pumps in my boat. They are on separate switches, batteries, wiring and discharge hoses.

    another battery question

    Some chargers are designed that way. If the leads are labeled #1 and #2, usually #1 is designed for the starting battery and will put out more charging amps. The last two chargers I've installed were designed that way and stated so in the manual.

    WTB ??? What's going on ?

    Well, if all this is not bad enough, I went to Sam's to buy group 31 Duracell batteries for my trolling motor. They ain't got none!!!!! Guy said when the virus hit, everybody started buying boat batteries and working on their boats.

    WTB ??? What's going on ?

    As soon as the money that people arent used to getting stops and the inflation hits it will come. No way there is that many people that can afford 75k+ bay boats when there is unemployment issues along with all the “loan forgiveness” due to COVID. When bills are normal and the shortage of pay is obvious I think you will be able to get a solid deal on some toys.
