    Is my OCD the issue or

    Measure, that will tell which is off center. You just noticed this ?. Ditch the pie plate and put in a small hatch on center with console to cover present opening, in WHITE. Or paint the pie plate to match the Seadek using deck paint.

    Spot Light

    Thanks for all the reviews and feedback. Thinking the Stanley Fatmax is the way to go for the amount of time I use the lady at night. No need is spending $$$$$$. I also carry a small tac pocket light at nite that does a very good job and as a backup and looking in lockers if needed. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โš“๏ธFin.

    Spot Light

    Had to lay my spot light to rest after almost 15 years. Looking for a new one. No need to spend lots off $$$$ on one as I do not run at night much anymore. Really only need to spot channel markers as the old eyes are getting older. Want it to be rechargeable and hand held and have the most lumes as possible for brightness and distance. Compact and light as possible. Do not want a grapefruit size head. Suggestions welcomed. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โš“๏ธFin

    My drains are not on the deck, on the wall where you step onto the back deck. Will try. Thanks.

    Drain Line

    Think your right and I was given wrong information. Stuck a flex wire into the drains from inside and hit objects on both drains both the same distance from the drain holes. Did not force anything to cause an issue. Thanks much and appears to have smooth wall hoses. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โš“๏ธFin

    Drain Line

    Thanks for the info. When I hosed from the outside in got some leaves washed back into cockpit. From inside hosed out not much of a heavy stream but felt something. Years back on this forum this subject was discussed regarding the inline check valves being an issue. It was explained certain year 2200v did not have then and my 03 was one of the years mentioned. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘โš“๏ธFin

    o2 Systems for live bait

    Have not seen then used for awhile. Used to see redfish and snooks tournaments where some boats used small bottles of oxygen with hose to live well to keep the fish alive. Did same at the dock in the release tanks. I myself use frozen water bottle to keep temp down.
