I've done this run in big boats, and the reverse in small ones. It's a haul. I would second Solomons as a good stop over, but if you get down around point lookout and the wind is up, you might just...

Y'all are killing me with the food. Just wanted to chime in on Herrington North, if the OP is still hunting for a slip or a yard. We spent three or four seasons there and loved everything except the...

I've gone just about every year since I was 19. Skipped it for my honeymoon. I'd make sure to swing by the Fleet Reserve for a pit beef sandwich and a cold brew for lunch. And VIP day is the best bet...

I've been dealing with the DNR by mail for years now. Last boat was a good deal (engines were blown). I had a notarized Bill of Sale that showed I paid maybe 10% of book. I printed out the...

Gene,

There's an excellent video tutorial on how to modify your gas cans using a bicycle valve out there somewhere on YouTube. A couple of preppers made it. They were more concerned about how the...

That head to head needs prop info or it's useless. The large difference in the 0-30 times screams more pitch on the Merc side. I'd want to know a lot more before basing my decision on fuel numbers.

52 degrees is for 83khz according to the notes I scribbled in my installation manual. 22 degrees at 200khz, which isn't bad at all. Some of the thru-hull versions are more like single digits.

That's an elegant solution and saves you switching views. Will have to think about the dash layout if I did that. Still curious if anyone out there is using this transducer and would recommend it.

Seems like a lot to spend for one wide angle broadband sounder. Is anyone running this unit that could tell me if they would spend the $$$ to network it in?

HDS Gen3, Two Transducers?

Big box showed up under the tree last week. Got the HDS Gen3 (12-inch) with the little skimmer transducer in the box. I believe it's the 83/200hz unit. I wasn't that excited about the little skimmer,...

Well, used to be you could tie up at Snappers if you were going to eat there. It's free, but there are only a couple slips. But this is from memory and it's been maybe ten years. I'd call and ask.

Can't really answer this without more information on the drives, and props. If the boat is set up correctly, the smaller engines on the 37 probably won't make much difference. I'd find Formula's...

Doug,

Sorry for the delay. Was at the Miami boat show drooling and dreaming. I replied to your PM before I saw these posts. The prop is still available.

Gigman, I sent you a PM with more detail, but in case anyone else is interested,

I switched to 13.75 x 19 inch reliance SDS for the pair of F150s. Seeing 5,800 or so WOT.

I have a Yamaha SS prop 15 1/4 x17 - M that came off a 150 HPDI. I switched to an SDS hub on my new F150 so don't need this one any more. It's got a little surface...

The new "low permeability" hoses is likely what he means. They are usually grey with an inner liner of white "plastic" though it can't really be plastic because it has to resist ethanol now. It's all...

Well, they are worth $1,000 bucks after you blow them up. So run them until one pops, keep the $25k in your pocket for the F150s till you need it, and swap them out later. That's what I did.

Check the fill caps on the boat that run to the remote (boat side) oil tanks. Make sure the gasket underneath hasn't rotted out. I picked up a "dock queen" with just over 200 hours that had both...

Tesco,

I've driven boats with this engine in it on more than one occasion now. I've also driven it back to back with the old 5.0 V8. The first difference you'll notice is in the noise. These new...
