It’s my first wrap, so I can’t say first hand what kind of protection a wrap gives the gel coat, but the wrap is protecting the fiberglas below from the sun. I expect my hull will look just like it...

The Yamaha F250XB and the 250SHO are both mechanical control motors. If you want the additional HP, those should be options the dealer gives you without having to worry about an upcharge for changing...

Leave it up, but tie it off to the support pilings on either side to keep it from swaying. That’s what I’ll do with the boat on the lift and I’d do the same if the lift were empty.

I have a two year old F250XB on my 23 foot bay boat. I very occasionally buy 93 octane ethanol free gas, but use 87 octane e-gas from the local gas station with a bit of Startron almost exclusively....

Boat Lift Bunk Length

Finally have a home with a boat lift and want to replace the old wooden bunks with aluminum. Will 12 bunks be sufficient for my 23 Bay boat?

10-15 pound braid for inshore fishing. I typically stick with 15. I’ve never used anything but PowerPro or Spiderwire, but I’m sure there are others who prefer other brands. You’ll want a 20-30 pound...

Use the e-gas and put a little StarTron in for insurance. Do you pay extra for ethanol free gas in your car or truck? Four stroke outboards are modern engines, are built to operate under tougher...

I’m that price range, you might want to check out the Lowrance Elite 7TI. Since they just came out with the Elite TI2, there are some good deals on the older model and it has more advanced...

A good solid weld should have been stronger than that. Give your dealer a chance to fix it. Of course, all the welds are suspicious now. If it come down to it, perhaps you have tackle coverage on...

Only thing I can think of is that you actually have a 20” shaft on your motor. If it’s a 250 SHO it might be. That could account for the cavitation problem, although that boat can probably handle the...

Sounds like you’re trying to rationalize your desire for a newer faster motor. I get that. So, yeah, it’s a great financial decision!

I had an ‘88 model with twin 150s. Tough, strong boat that would do 50+. I still miss it when the winds up and I want to head offshore for grouper and snapper.

We have a lot of floating docks here and those tend to make contact with the boat below the rub rail. I always use fenders for those since I have a wrap that is damaged more easily than gel coat.

HP ratings on outboards can be somewhat misleading. In the Yamaha lineup, for example, the 4.2 liter block is used in the F225, F250, 250SHO, and F300. If you go by the EPA tested output ratings for...

You should probably drop down in pitch. If you’re running a 19 pitch prop, go to 17. You’ll get better acceleration, but I doubt your top end will change appreciably. Top speed of 48 sounds about...
