Pretty sure the answer is no, but Earl Bentz was involved with both companies. He left HS to start stratos.

Bought trailer this way but seems to hold my boat well. I have towed about 200 miles in this configuration and with bow strapped down and one HD strap across the back of boat down to trailer and she doesn't move at all.
Eyeballing it I'd say that is very similar to how my Loadmaster is set up for my 2390. Thanks for posting the specs, although mine has two 6K pound axles.

Awesome thread guys.
I currently have a 2011 180CC (which is for sale). Previously had a 1998 180CC Vector.
Also previously had a 23 CC. We have regularly fished 30+ miles offshore in the Keys in all these boats with no issues.
Anyone looking at any Hydra-Sports center console should not be disappointed, they are very well built boats. Just my .02.

Sorry again but can't seem to post pictures and text together. Above is a couple of pictures of 2 rod holders that I made from parts bought from Marine Connection in Florida. Most holders I saw mounted to a rail in their center while I wanted these top mounted style so they don't stick up higher than the rail. These also don't get in the way while using spring lines during docking.

Also just designed these 2 sinker trays and had them built by a friend at his shop. They are made out of Starboard, plastic welded together so no screws are showing except the 2 He/She cabinet screws I used to mount them to the existing factory rod holders. Each tray has draining holes drilled into the bottom which is resting on top of the factory toe rail for added support. No way can they ever sag and we still have full toe rail usage while standing fighting fish. Got tired of chasing loose sinkers around after 2-4 guys bottom fish all day.

I just put a Roman, 84” 36volt on my 2390. It’s Great! Batteries were put in the console where the existing Batteries are.

Found a rotomolded cooler that fits in the leaning post. 60qt permachill. I got it from overtons for $100 with the 40% off coupon. Lid is a little tight and rubs the leaning post legs whrn it's opened half way, but it's kind of nice since it holds the lid for you.

thank you brother. Will follow your advice. Only reason I was considering the Yeti is Bc I can get the 65 which by the measurements is about the same size as the Engel 80 for less money than the price of the Engel. Thatís all.
