    trolling motor paint recommendation

    I’ve used a zinc chromate primer and then Rustoleum white and so far so good on the scratched areas.

  5. I would recommend to call the factory and seek assistance, I don’t know of any shops that stock...” anchor hatches β€œ but most fiberglass shops can make one using your old one as a tool model. Just a suggestion, JJ

    Non-MBG boat question (please forgive)

    You can either Flex Seal the inside or have it sprayed with a truck bed liner. It will be more durable that JB Weld because it will expand and contract due to rubber or vinyl content. Just a thought......🎣JJ

  11. Recirculating pump is good in July and August here in South Georgia when the water temps are very high....if you get a couple dozen pogies in a live well while looking for Tarpon or Tripletail, and they get too hot..they will start dying off. I sometimes even throw some ice in the well to refresh them. I’ve never had a problem with shrimp or mullet. Just menhaden.

    Cosmetic or Structural?

    Ron, on the threaded rod..... it’s a SAE thread so go with right = tight ....that would apply to the top nut and the bottom nut, turning the nut to the right would β€œ lengthen β€œ the threaded section therefore closing the gap on the upper plate. Those screws backing out are due to some movement while the load is applied. I would recommend going with a threaded screw with flat washers and nylock nuts ( all stainless ) for that trim piece around the cleat, and take those self tapping type screws out. Choosing the top or bottom nut to tighten will depend on how much extra threaded rod you ha
  14. Saturday was a perfect day for top water with 75F water and an incoming tide at daylight. However, Mother Nature stepped in with a blowing wind. But, when you work Monday thru Friday....you fish on weekends. So, we went at daylight, caught a few really nice keepers and some shorts .....once the tide turned and started coming in around 8:00 AM the wind came also....got everything churned up and we packed it up.

    Ron....YOU WIN ! If my bilge was ever that clean it would have been the day she rolled off the assembly line....and I can honestly say she is not that clean now. Don’t worry about that surface corrosion on the the hulls, if you leave them alone, they will eventually turn completely green of which the new generation call β€œ verde” and it’s considered a cool color πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ£πŸ‘
