    salt build up behind thermostat.

    Try using white vinegar to dissolve salt. Careful, it may dull paint if left to dry. Just rinse any run-off with garden hose.

    SeaClaw Anchor

    I've had a 12 lb. Sea Claw from Capt. Kevin for about 18 yrs. It's the only thing I removed from my old boat when I sold it.

    2200 vs 23HPS

    I would buy the boat that suites my needs for the type of fishing I do most of the time. If you just fish off shore occasionally, you can adjust your speed to suite the waves regardless of boat. I chose the 23 because of the storage and accessibility of bilge area. I like to do minor repairs/replacement myself, so good access to the bilge was important to me. Plus, if you measure the 23, end to end, it is actually 24 ft. long. I can speak to the ride, because I've never been in a 22, but I can't imagine it would ride any better than a 23. The 23 is also faster with the same motor.

    Please remember

    My fear is that we have strayed to far from the real meaning of Memorial Day. God bless those that gave it all and lets teach the younger generation to appreciate our Vets.

    250 Sho overheat question

    Where does the Poppet Valve come into play?

    2001 1900V Fuel Tank Replacement

    Exactly, good information. Also check the sending unit of top of the tank and the anti-siphon valve connection. Remember, gasoline fumes are heavier than air, so any leak or opening for vapors to escape will settle to the lowest point of the boat. Just the slightest little opening in a hose connection or threaded connection will fill the hull with fumes. Make sure you move the boat outside and ventilate the hull before starting work.

    HPS Transducer Install

    Did you buy a shoot through or a thru-hull?

    HPS Transducer Install

    Sure it's possible. First, you have to get the replacement transducer and have it ready to install. You could try to remove the big nut that threads onto the transducer from the inside of the hull. If that doesn't work, you can find solvent that melts the caulking used in the original install. I ordered my 23 hps without a transducer and installed a Airmar B-60 with 12 degree angle. It's tough working through that hole in the gas tank, but with the right tools and patients, it can be done.

    2300hps steering binding

    I has a similar problem on my 2013 SHO. The problem was that they did not put a grease fitting on the tilt tube on this particular year. It was still under warranty and my dealer replaced the tilt tube with a manufacturers replacement part.

    HDI Transducer mounting location

    Route your transducer cable as far away from other wiring as you can. That cuts down on interference and noise.

    TM install on Cobia 220

    Take a pic of your front deck, then post your pic and question in the general section. You will probably get lots of help.

    Good Day Out

    Good stuff, everybody's having fun. We're back home in Orlando, but come June 1st everything that swims is in trouble. We are overdue for some fishing.
