    Transducer Location / Redfisher 18

    This is where I mounted mine. Seems to be working well. Bought the stern saver to mount it to.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Whats the warranty last on those? Thought was 2 years.

    Blown motor value

    I got $1250 for a blown(one cylinder) 2000 150vmax including the rigging/gauges just over a year ago.

    Looking for Garmin 546

    If its in good shape other than that, would call Sea Tronics and see if they can do refurb for you. They were not able to fix my unit I sent them, but were extremely helpful and honest.

    Added a new depth finder/transducer. Still working on transducer height(got readings up to 27mph hit or miss). Also going to have to get a splash guard as it throw water all over the engine to the top of the cowling.

    Redfisher 18 Repower with Suzuki 115

    If it hasnt come up in your search I would take a hard look at the 140 instead of the 115. Believe they are same weight and very little cost difference. I have posted my real world numbers on my 18’ with the 140 in the Hewes section you could use as a comparison. Good luck and post some pics when its done!

    Repower Yam vs Zuke

    Are they the newer Suzuki or the old ones? Know they say to replace the anodes every 100 but might do more often if its the newer as it takes longer for inshore boats to get to 100.
  10. I am selling a #80 thrust 3-1 turn trolling motor. Works fine, upgraded to spot lock. It is older and looks its age but works fine. Brushes were replaced this last year. Came off an 18’ Light Tackle(redfisher)$450obo. PM for info or text/call 772-473-9911. Located in Vero Beach.

    Repower Yam vs Zuke

    The 140 is the way to go. Quiet beyond belief with excellent fuel economy at a much lower price point and automatic 6yr warranty. Can get all upgraded gauges, prop, and other add ons for bellow what a base Yamaha is Not much to debate it other than the “I prefer Yamaha” argument.

    Gunsmith reccomendations

    Figured I would post the follow up incase someone needed a good gun smith or had a similar project they wanted to tackle. First off, I found an AWESOME gunsmith that was super honest and works for way less than he was worth IMO. He is out of Indiatlantic FL,. His name is mark and the company is BenchMark Performance Services 321-536-9706. He took the gun apart, cleaned it, inspected it for any issues prior to doing any work so if there was an issue we wouldnt proceed. Then researched the gun and the history and printed out about 10-22 pages of info about the history and model. He found and told me the twist of the barrel and his suggestions of the grain bullets that would group best with the gun. He suggested type of trigger and how to add a safety more cost efficiently due to the rifle having a tang safety that wouldnt work with a scope. Did all the work and set the new timney trigger to 3lb that is better than any trigger Ive had on a hunting rifle and made adjustments to the bolt to accomodate the scope. Needless to say I was more than impressed and couldnt give him any higher of a reccomendation. Here are some pics of the finished product.

    3/8" fuel line Marine grade VS quality auto grade?

    Get a double barbed nipple and tape it together for added strength. Mine pulled pretty easy. Hardest part was getting the hose off the tank nipple. Ended up just cutting it off with a razor knife. I have a thread from replacing mine that has the lengths and sizes you will most likely need.

    3/8" fuel line Marine grade VS quality auto grade?

    Regardless, there is different fire ratings and standards in marine vs regular fuel lines. It is excessively expensive I agree. But marine grade is worth the money. Maybe $50 more?? At the most.
