    ISO 2200 $25k budget

    you couldn’t buy a used 22 TRS without a motor or trailer for $25k

    2019 Maverick Hpxv-18

    Sweet setup and decent deal for someone looking for basically a brand new boat fully rigged and already broken in. If I were in the market this one would get my vote.

    Rod Reel Line

    I’ve been using power pro continuously since around 2004 I think. Year after year it just never gives me a reason to use anything else. If it does though, I think I would try the Suffix 832 like Dino. For rods - I’m partial to Fenwick HMG.

    2200 Performance Numbers

    Have you checked your oil level? I suspect your oil level is way high due to blow by caused from being over propped and lugging the motor. These motors “making oil” (gas blow by and gas getting into the oil) is pretty common in the bass boat world where they prop their boats for top end speed right out of the box without putting the proper prop on the motor during the break in period. I would not crank the motor again until you get it checked out by the dealer. If the mechanic acts like he’s never heard of a SHO “making oil”, then he is lying through his teeth.

    1992 18.5 MA Rebuild

    Tell him to cancel the order on the trolling motor. 55 lb thrust is worthless on that boat. You need an 80 lb 24 v system. 55lb is for a small boat in a bass pond

    That’s the prop I used to spin on the same Hull with no t top and a 250 SHO. That’s too much prop for your rig

    Boat Demand During A Pandemic!

    I look for particular boats for clients/friends/family every single day of the week......particularly Yellowfin and Pathfinder bay boats.....prices are higher than giraffe ears that is for sure!! a lot of boats in the used market have been for sale for 6 months or longer with no movement in price, some of that is because people bought new and financed for 20 years and owe more than they are worth.....and then there are 2005/2006 Pathfinder 2200V's with F150's or HPDI's asking around $30,000, so those 2 segments aren't going to sell anytime soon. Anyone with a 4 year to 7 year old boat with a realistic price normally sells really fast.

    pontoon boats

    Blairsville and further South down to Mt Yona and up and over to the west toward Dillard in Habersham County is some pretty scenic country. I love it up there.

    pontoon boats

    you don't hear the banjos until you get up around Lakes Raybun, Chatuge, or Burton. Blueridge and Blairsville is the big city up yonder ways.
