  1. Congratulations on these well-deserved promotions!

    help with decisiom

    If you can find a good MA21, forget about the others and get it. They are excellent in every way. Fast, stable, and very roomy. Also, in the older bay boat category, a Pathfinder 2200V is always a good choice. JMO. I have an LT18 and love it. I have read about the bow-heavy LT20s but have no personal experience, sorry. But I have spent considerable time on my pal's MA21. You'll be impressed.
  3. This decision will hinge on your technician's experience and willingness to keep you on the water! Around here it's all Yamaha with a few Suzukis. Pretty much.
  4. SHO-time! Impressive engine. Mine amazes me daily.

    2020 pathfinder 2400 trs upgrades info

    Beautiful vessel! Glad to see another 2400TRS owner who does not have a t-top. Hard to fly fish with one in the way!

    2400 TRS switch panel replacement toggles

    Any issues since??
  8. Gang, I am considering replacing all the toggle switches on my switch panel. Some are working intermittently, and that's not good. Anybody got part numbers for the two different types? I already replaced my trim tab rocker switches with Marpac 7-0543.

    Good catch, Captain. The safety of our anglers is priority number one.

    Agreed! Best focus on the customer I have seen in a long time, maybe ever.

    18 Light Tackle re-power 140 or 200?

    I have a 130 Yamaha on mine. It's a good match. A buddy just replaced his 130 with the new lightweight Suzuki 140. He reports although performance suffers a bit, 6 miles per gallon is pretty sporty. Worth considering! The boat will still run mid to high 40s.
  12. I just put one of these in my Pathfinder. Pretty amazing product, great deal. I am not affiliated in any way; just passing on a bargain. I does come with the Active Imaging 3 in 1 transducer, even though the photo is of another. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lowrance-HDS-12-Carbon-With-Active-Imaging-3-in-1-Transom-Mount-Transducer-LOWRA/373001483758?epid=3037960544&hash=item56d89ef5ee:g:SQEAAOSw5B9ex~8i

    Thoughts on Chartplotters for MA 18

    I suggest you keep an eye open for last year's model Lowrance - the HDS Carbon. Reportedly the 9" is virtually the same machine as the Live, and can be had for a LOT less dough. Whatever you decide, consider the Active Imaging 3 in 1 transducer. It's a pretty amazing setup for sure. I have the 12 and on my 2400 TRS and love it.

    4Runner Towing a Pathfinder

    Watch Lexus suspension systems. Cushy, yes, tough, not so much. Land Cruiser all the way. I am on my 5th.
