Tampa Bay is typically windy and cold in February. There are flat days mixed in but I don’t use my 21’ much in February around here. Further south around Sanibel, Captiva or Boca Grande there is...

Check what the regs are, I think it’s permissible to use an out of state registered boat for a limited period of time. Snowbirds bring their yachts down from the northeast each winter. Regardless,...

no one is doubting that dockage is available at South Seas. OP is asking about North Captiva, at the north end of that island. It is shallow in the harbor outside of the channel.

as stated above you can fit your boat at Barnacle Phils if they allow it. But the basin outside of the narrow channel is all very shallow, you won’t have enough water to anchor at low tide anywhere...

Good advice here, a new repower doesn’t make financial sense unless you will keep the boat forever. I second Franzen Marine as a good source for used motors, he is in Tampa but ships worldwide.

I assume you mean Shumake’s in Tampa. He has been closed since Covid. I needed a new cover and usually use Shumake’s, but since they are closed I used Better Boat Covers in Bradenton. It’s a one...

Confused regarding motor...you state @200 hours...is this the original motor, or repowered? Or is it 200 hours on a 17 year old motor?

My mechanic replaced the internal aluminum anodes on my 2003 Honda 225 at around 700 hours, which he said was the proper interval. I don’t have a shop manual so I can’t verify that’s correct.

No.

I don’t know your boat at all, so I’m not saying water is your problem. But if there is water in the foam floatation it won’t ever dry out. You would need to remove the wet foam and replace...

I wouldn’t think the weight difference in motors would be significant. Usually if scuppers are underwater, you have water trapped in the hull somewhere, frequently in the foam floatation.

18’ Albury Brothers. But for the price you could buy a much larger boat instead. Why 17’-19’?

^this. Live well boxes were an option on Aquasport 17, 19-6, and 22’2” center consoles in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. There are angled holes in the bottom of the boxes that keep the water level up...

I would think the Merc 225 would be perfect. Plenty fast and no issues with stern weight. Overpowered boats with too much stern weight are unpleasant to run at any speed except very fast. Which...

All of the safety stuff on my 2016 Land Cruiser works perfectly. Sorry about your friend’s troubles but there is not a widespread issue with the Toyota Safety Sense features.
