Limited out in less than an hour in front of Fermi in 25 FOW. Bottom Bouncers and Crawler Harness'. Color didn't matter, as soon as I hit a pod of fish, rods bent over simultaneously.

I run Rec 90 only from my club (non-profit, so it's cheaper than most dock gas), treat it with Mercury fuel additives during the season, and Stabil 360 for winter storage.

No extra fuel filters,...

If you didn't pull the trigger, go for it. It will handle a 2-3 foot swell comfortably. It will eat up 2-3 foot chop tab'd and trim'd properly. LPS's comments were spot on, keep the bow down and it's...

Something is rotten in Denmark. You're either over propped or too heavy. You should be getting WOT of 5800-6400 RPM to keep those motors healthy.

I've been on a few 8' beam CC's (that had a bunch more deadrise than mine), and they were way more apt to pitch, but that's not a great comparison though.

For me it's spacing around the console. ...

I would go with the Ox. That extra 6" of beam can make a big difference, especially when you have more than a couple people on the boat.

The more chain the better. I keep two ancient Danforth's in the boat. A 5# is usually on the bow, and I keep a 9# for the aft cleat. If it's super snotty I switch them around.

You have to remove the top cowling latch and some facia to get at it. You will also need a long socket extension on your rachet (or a speeder) and it helps a lot to have the rubber retainer in your...

We use ClubExpress. The only thing I don't like about it, is our YC linked their crappy bank pay system to it, instead of using a native bill pay option. So in essence, I have to use two systems to...

If you just need registration numbers, you can get them from BoatUS. I changed mine from OH to MI, wasn't hard at all. If talking transom art - call SouthShore Marine - they have someone.

Don't open the packaging until you get to the boat - just in case the keys are there - then you can return the new ignitions.

Interested in the results... I'd have them fix those skegs as part of the deal as well, or get a couple quotes to fix them and pull down the price accordingly.

The pic's make it look like the skegs are pitted or have taken hard hits vs. just a sandbar or two.

For the type of money you're spending, I would want a super, super clean boat with no issues. ...

If you can stomach the wind, cold and rain - the walleye are just as numerous (if not more) than last year. I've been limiting in the Detroit River and the lake the past 3 weeks - but we have decent...

He's in for a surprise then.

1. I don't see trolling motor rigging as an option on the 232 - it's labor intensive to pull wire to the bow and add a plug after the boat is built.
2. It's an...

I would estimate between $4-600 for a survey - doesn't include an engine inspection, hull only.

I used this to call a few guys in my area:
