I am not following your comment about the run south from NSB to go offshore. Why wouldn't you go out of ponce inlet?

As for which location, I only ever go to the port for fishing trips. Anything...

The two things I don't like about my cover from t-top is that it only has the zipper on one side and it doesn't come down the hull sides very far at the bow. Other than that it performs really well...

I bought a sea claw style anchor for my last boat when I had the same problem. It is a lot smaller than a fluke style anchor and holds really well.

I don't think a 219fs with a 150 will break 40 with a full load. It will also be slow to plane.

Agreed with the 150 being underpowered. I have a Key West 203fs with a 150hp and there are plenty of times I wished I had more power. I wouldn't want a 219fs with less than a 200hp. Other than that I...

The objective must be to reduce demand by discouraging undesirable visitors (primarily Orlando & Seminole)

What about using an onboard charger to recharge while underway with the outboard? That would be the cheapest and less space consuming approach.

so the power drops from 12 volts to 11 as soon as I transmit. Is that enough of a drop to cause transmission issues?
