    Maverick 18 hpx speaker location

    Hpx owners, looking for info on mounting a couple of jl audio speakers in the front deck bulkhead wall. Gas tank in the way of mounting depth? Has anyone mounted speakers here? Thinking probably of using 6.5’s. I’d have to move a charger if I mounted speakers in side of console. Here is a pic of my deck. Thks for input

    Near flawless condition. Bought in hopes of being the right prop for my set up. Ended up having local prop shop put little cup in it, still not what I was hoping for. Hardly used. No Flo torq included. $400 and I’ll ship it. PM me if interested Thks.

    Adding a jackplate to 18' HPX-V?

    I would also like some feedback from someone who added a plate to their 18 hpx. I also have one with the sho 115. Would love to get up shallower. When in plane boat runs super skinny. My hesitation is that I have heard by shifting weight back further could create porposing issues. I know tabs can fix this. I have also heard that speed is affected when adding the setback. I am probably going to try it and see. If not satisfied then sell the plate. Sure would be nice for some real world info from someone though. Someone has to have tried this.

    Only one I have found is from magnum tuning. Never really heard anything about them. Www.Magnumtuning.com. They have one for the vf 115.

    Group 24 batteries

    Thank you to all that responded to my question. Yes, boat is an 18 hpx. Made cardboard templates of the smallest 27 in the tray's I could put in there. Just a bit too big. Group 24's or the optima 34's I believe will have to be the answer. I have a solid charger minnkota MK330 charger, charging batteries back to full overnight should not be issue. Trying to make decision on highest reserve capacity 24 battery I can find with good cca's. Engine is a 115 so should not need a ton of cca's to start engine. No amp on board and do not live bait fish that much.

    Group 24 batteries

    Anyone have any feedback using group 24 batteries on an 80 lb troll motor set up? Trying to determine if I can get day of fishing with moderate use out of em. I know a lot depends on fishing conditions and such. Don’t plan on doing a lot of spot lock or fishing in heavy winds currents and so on. I am limited on room for the batteries. Thks.

    Troll motor install / 2017 hpx v

    Thank you for feedback and responses. I did end up speaking with a dealer who say's they have had good success with drill / tap install into the plates that Skip confirmed existed. I think I will go this route. MBG, thinking of everyone in the FL region as storm approaches, hopefully forecast changes for sure. thks

    Troll motor install / 2017 hpx v

    No advice for me from other hpx owners I guess.

    Troll motor install / 2017 hpx v

    Installing wireless troll motor on my hpx. Assume a drill and tap with 1/4" bolt works. Don't think I can get to some of the bolts to back them up with nut / washer. I assume there is a reinforcement plate in the mount area that can be tapped. Let me know if headed in wrong direction. Thanks

    Fueling 18 hpx maverick

    Any others having fuel filling issues with their maverick? Gauge shows half full. Can t seem to get anymore fuel in it. No idea how much fuel is actually in boat. Yamaha gauge is set to 29 gallons which is what tank size is. 2017 model boat. Advice?
