What power on the Robalo? Tahoe is a great delta boat but will be underpowered with that 75. No way you get an adult out of the water on skis and it'll take you 60 seconds to get on plane with a tube...

This verbiage is strictly so they can sell them in CA and other EPA-crazy states as "utility jugs," even though everyone knows what they're used for. Has to do with the vent valve not being...

More so now that the bluefin have been within skiff range of SoCal the last few years. Some of the best bites have been at night with glow flat falls or bait with glo sinkers. Keeps a lot of the...

I used AFA a few years ago and it was not a good experience. The nuts holding the carb to the manifold were never tightened after service and the carb fell off while I was 5 miles out in my skiff....

Only downside is their weight, especially in a jon boat application that a 25hp motor will likely be used. My 2020 EFI Yamaha 25 is 40 pounds lighter than the Honda 25. If that doesn't matter to you,...

Like any other surface, the longer you let a stain sit, the harder it will be to get it out. It's a game changer for my golden retriever, as she now has something to grip onto.

What's your intended use? Fine to pull skiers/tubers. Not very practical boats for much else IMO.

Make the run to Catalina. If she can't love that island and appreciate the boat she got there on, stick her on the Flyer and see which version she likes better. I think she'll come around...

Super easy carbs to clean. I bought a skiff that had a 9.9 Honda with the same issue. Fresh plugs and a carb clean did the trick. Took me about 30 minutes (Disclaimer: I used to be a...

I have the Elite 7 TI, nothing but great things to say about it. Transducer loses deep bottom at speed but should be fine in the shallows. Nice to have the touch integration along with the buttons.

Rental boats are almost always severely limited by horsepower and don't dart around like water bugs. PWCs aren't code-limited even though the computer is more than capable of it. "Here folks, this...

Those ramps work well. Add a pull line to the water end and tie it off to a cleat so you can raise it when not in use. Those things collect growth in a hurry if left down.

Just moved to the CA Delta area and went out for the first time last weekend. Bass boat country, and I'd say of the 100 boats I saw, I'd guess there were 5 Optimaxs to every one four stroke. Was not...

I think you answered your own question though if you notice the bulb is leaking. You have an air leak and that will kill it. West Marine sells complete units for less than $50. Just get a new...

Still allowed to leave your house to procure food for yourself/family. That's what I'm doing when I go fishing. Get skunked? "Sorry officer, ocean was sold out!"

How far are you towing? Truck won't have an issue motor-wise, but those bigger pontoons MOVE under tow. Make sure you don't skimp on the hitch and you will be fine.
