I have not - which is why i was asking for advice. My experience towing is limited to boats and trailers in the ~ 8’ wide range.

Like I said that's not a risk I'm interested in taking. If it was occasional towing short distances I wouldn't even think twice about it. But for 800 mile trips? Not worth it. Anything large enough...

Towing a 10’ beam boat regularly?

Looking like I may be having to move to the Denver area and become a trailer boater. Family really enjoys spending the night on the boat so we’re looking at a couple of 28’ express options but the...

I want to be really careful here because I don't want to do anything that could unfairly hurt someone's business. An 18' boat is perfectly fine for protected water, tributaries, etc. But please do...

If your top priority is a new boat, there are several in the 18' range you could look at. But I think unless you are planning on boating exclusively in protected waters, an 18' boat is way too...

I'd look for a dual console. What (very little) you give up in "fishability," you more than make up for in terms of comfort. It's awfully nice when the weather turns for the worse for the whole...

The cummins folks in Glenn Burnie are an option. They come down to Deale to do work so I'd think you could get them in your area as well. I've called them and they are friendly and helpful but...

Second this - you've got time to do a couple more trips this season. A lot of places to visit are actually quite nice in the fall when the crowds die down - especially places like solomons or st...

I'm never quite sure when the best time is to switch over to trolling. My sense is that trolling is pretty much always going to work to some extent. But live-lining is generally going to be more...

Trolling bite in the midbay

Wondering if the trolling bite is on yet for the midbay rockfish? I noticed the water temp is down a little. I suspect the live line bite is still good, just wondering at what point does trolling...

Appreciate the tips guys. For now i'm just going to hold on to them. I'm still playing with getting the pitch right for the boat anyway, so it allows me to have a set being re-worked while the other...

Ok good thoughts. I'll definitely keep them off the boat and may go ahead and hold on to them. Didn't think about the idea of only taking them for a longer cruise. I guess it would make sense in a...

You could get a mid to late 80's tiara 3100 for around that price that would fit the bill. As another poster said you'll be looking at an inboard, gas powered boat in the 28-32' range.

worth carrying a spare set of props for inboard boat?

I've got a 38' boat and have been hauling around a spare set of 24 x 31 props that came with the boat since I bought it. I've seen videos of people change large inboard props in the water and it...

Labor Day fishing out of VB

Thinking about running my boat down to VB for a happy-birthday-to-me present over Labor Day weekend.
