Went fishing today. Caught some fish and enjoyed the great weather. Crazy thing happened today though, another boat drifted into me. I was anchored fishing and next thing I know a 26í Cat starboard went into my pulpit anchor. Their boat Iím sure got a few scratches but WTH. Could it believe it, had to tell them to reverse so their motor would cut/tangle my anchor line. They had 3 on board and none of them were fishing at the time so Iím not sure, their motor was idling at the time and one of them were able to put it in reverse and back away.

I got the port engine starter rebuilt only to discover a grround cable loose on the back of the bell housing.Starter wouldn't disengage and started to melt some wiring. After a few little repairs,she's up and running good.Also,today I bought a new Lifetime 55 qt. cooler and 4 gallons of antifreeze for the boat.Planning on flushing out and changing fluid in FWC systems later today.

thanks. It is a 2005 Polar 2100 CC. Just picked it up last season. I love the layout for fishing.

Changed the isolator between the throttle body and supercharger and plugged in the battery charger to get her ready for a long weekend on the coast. Off to the gas station tomorrow!

Finalized adding a third axle to the trailer and converting my dual fenders to triple for about $120 vs. $700 cost of new fenders.

This complete the new all stainless brakes, new wheels, new tires.

Can't wait to see how much tongue weight I lost and how much better it pulls.

Just cruised the bay with my son. Didn't even bring a fishing pole. We got back just before the usual afternoon thunderstorms. It was fun though.

The dealer installed a Taco Marine 890 crank antenna mount when I bought the boat. Problem is/was they installed it on the slant of the hardtop. It has no adjustment for the angle, itís meant to be installed on the flat middle part of the hardtop. Itís awesome, you can raise and lower the antenna right from the helm seat.

I decided to measure the angle it was it was off and custom make a shim/wedge for it. The antenna had a slight lean to starboard. So today I installed it and it came out looking great.

2006 Sea Hunt Triton 207 :

Installed a ACR Global Fix PRO CAT 1 EPRIB. Registered EPIRB and just got response back, it now has a sticker on it. Registered the new MMSI for the boat. Finished wiring the Lowrance to the VHF via new data cable, now the VHF is seeing data. The original owner never wired it up. Almost ready to head out of Sebastian.

Wired in new front spreader light. Going through a huge checklist as we bought it used. Already installed new wash-down pump, LED NAV and courtesy lighting (both not working). New trailer tires and front brake coupler.

Not to mention, cut the whole harness apart inside the console and re-wired the whole thing, new Blue Sea fuse panel and re-built a harness from hell. Audio amps are rusted/corroded, new ones coming in today along with new marine receiver. Mounted Shakespeare 4 foot AM/FM vertical antenna and mount.

I'm going to start a re-build thread for this boat. First Sea Hunt and we love it.

Finally got around to fishing my transducer cable and my lowrance-yamaha cable through the boat. It went relativeley easy. I built my nmea network and then hooked it up along with my 942xs. It was a success, I think. I can at least see that my 150 has 177 hours. I have to do some wiring fixes though. The way this thing is wired annoys me. Instead of having bus bars for power and ground it just kind of daisy chains from switch to switch.

Tightened the lines after the rain. Then looked at the boat and went back to work.

I installed new counter top, sink and tile in the head. Also installed granite tiles in the galley and replaced the bar top.

Default Offshore Saturday morning

Took our first trip offshore (in this boat) Friday when I checked was calling for 1-2. Sat. about 4:30a when i checked again was calling for 2-3. The NOAA buoy 411114 (Ft. Pierce,FL) was reporting like 1.3 Ft.. Out the inlet was fine. Would say was 1-2 until about 9:00a. Then were getting into 2-3 and white capes everywhere. Trolled until about 12:30p. After loosing 3 strikes decided it was time to call it a day. about that time a storm rolled off land as far north and south as we could see. headed towards the inlet. What a ride. was kind of glad when the rain started as it was helping wash the salt water out of our eyes LOL. May need a better weather source. any recommendations? Was a good test for the boat.

Did anyone else freak out when they saw them pictures at first? I thought a wave was going to crash in to his boat. It is just the mangroves! Glad you made it in just fine!

I took a quick run over to Mystic Seaport, then spent the night on the hook at Napatree R.I.

I took a 20 minute run to Barnegat inlet. Didn't make it all of the way. Once the wind burn set in, I turned around and headed back, that's when I hint I lost a kidney due to the chop. Good times.
