IPE works great. My parents have it on their dock and almost 20 years later looks like 5 years old. Also if you let it grey out from sun it’s fairly cool to the touch. I’m going to use it on mine...

I think the OP is asking why some twin engine outboard set ups spin the props outward in forward which is the traditional way vs some have the props spinning inward in forward. Both set ups are...

I have a lot of current where I am and have a boat with a windlass that doesn’t free fall. I get bow straight into current parallel to sand bar and start letting out anchor line while slightly...

I agree that 4.5 months for the amount of and quality level of work that Merritt does is pretty darn good. I've long thought that a big Freeman as an express would be almost ideal so I'm very curious...

They drink gas above 2500 RPM when under a good load and the boost is up. So basically exactly where you will spend all of your time with this engine in a boat. My ecoboost has been reliable but I...

I have FLIR on both a center console and a sporty. The less expensive version mounted on the T top is helpful at low speeds in a crowded harbor or an area where there is a mooring around a marina....

My father recently installed a Sea Pen and has been very happy with it. He had a FabDock before and it did not work well at his dock where there is a lot of current. Sea Pen also has a version that...

The only thing I can figure is that the engines are trying to run in sync which skews the readings. The good engine is showing correct rpm and load based on normal operation/speed and the engine with...

Had a boat with C7 Cats with the same displays. When a fuel filter would get dirty the engine with the dirty filter would show higher load and fuel burn than the other. I'm not sure how Cat does the...

I would think that the mono with a seakeeper would be more stable more of the time than a cat without one. We have a boat with a seakeeper and the difference is amazing. If conditions get beyond...

There are ways to do it but FL seems to be the most aggressive about their laws and closing loopholes. If you get with a broker or dealer who deals in large dollar value boats they will be able to...

We added SeaKeepers to a sportfish. Had to use two because one that was large enough to do the job would have required major surgery on the boat. The two we did fit between the main engines on the...

We have a Barker and love it. Rides much heavier than what you expect out of a 26' bay boat. If you really want a single engine that's the boat I would go with.
