    2002 HPX V Jackplate and Cavitation

    Geeviam, Instead of having boat manufacturers drill different holes how about the jackplate companies design the mounting holes lower so you have a level base starting point of where the engine was originally mounted and then adjust for your situation as needed?

    Similar, but she quit talking and was swaying back and forth while sitting on the ground.

    Watch the Heat

    Good job keeping an eye on everyone Capt Troy!! My gf had the same thing happen while working in her yard the other day. I reacted the same way you did and got her cooled off (neck, armpits, groin with wet towels and water). It took her a couple days before she felt back to 100%. Very scary for her!

    Search member bdsnook on this forum. He did his 21 MA by himself and spent under $300 for materials and new stickers.

    Gelcoat issues

    It may be an optical illusion but are the strakes of the hull riding on the bunks and not the flat part of the hull? That would need to be adjusted or those strakes will eventually crack after hitting a few bumps going down the road on the trailer.

    Hewes with F300!

    I disagree, BDSnook and I fish together and alternate boats, mine is a 16 RF and his is a 21 MA. The 21 MA is definitely a live bait boat with live wells in the front and back. his boat rides like a greyhound through the water in smooth and rough water, mine is more like a jack Russell terrier bouncing along in any kind of water. We use the front live well on his boat exclusively. It has a large lid opening, seals around the edge and holds a ton of bait. Now, when it gets dicey on the water and it is full some small amounts of water will splash out. Other than that it is a great option for me, a live bait kind of guy. On the other hand when we get into my boat and use the live well the lid opening is WAY to small, it feels like the size of a shoe box lid after being on Dave's boat. It is also in the rear and we fish off the bow using the trolling motor or power poled up. we have to go to the back of the boat every time we need a bait. IMO, this new boat could use a step and front live well.

    Maybe make the front livewell a little lower than the regular deck to be used as a 'step up' for us older guys???
