That sounds like an O2 sensor no pun intended. Changed mine and never went bad after.

Right on with your post. I ran mine up to a 900 hours then repowered with a 300. Some DOD have corrosion issues but then again so do some Yamahas. The 243 rides way better with a 300.

If it is a small project like you describe the city should allow you to draw it yourself using your same floor plan. Schedule a meeting with the Building Official and ask them if it’s okay to draw it...

“Sponsons” are not necessary. EG is not the only boat with scupper issues. It is not ass heavy but rather the deck is built lower than waterline hence the idea that you ride in the boat and not on...

Special scupper? Dated? Much needed pontoons? Languish in the classifieds?

Sorry this happened to you. The EG owners manual, from what I recall, does say to keep the sea cock closed when not using it for precisely that unfortunate probability. This is the single biggest...

Precisely what I do every time my boat stays on the water. A friend of mine sunk his Contender by a failed fitting. The valve should always be closed.

I have an 07 EG 243 and my thru hull behind the fish box was leaking. It was twelve years old when I discovered it was leaking. The adhesive that they use to seat the valve is not designed to last...

Boating Accident Islamorada

At least one death of a teenager has been reported just southwest of Islamorada. The boat was a 24’ Pathfinder that apparently hit a marker. This is a shame for all involved.

I’ve put over 200 hours on the engine. Zero issues. Only changed fluids, flushed, and ran it like I stole it. Have lost no-performance whatsoever. The engine is solid and the finish on the cowling is...

in Biscayne on that boat I doubt theres a reason to have stayed in. Small Craft Advisory in my book doesn’t apply in the Bay unless there are major storms like a tropical storm.

I have been on this boat twice with two different guides. They are great boats IMO because the layout is friendly for fishermen and also handle the chop very well. I fished out of one in Charleston...

I have an 07’ 243 and run it in Biscayne Bay flats. I “putt-putt” in 2’ of water when I want to fish skinny water but I don’t run in less than 2’-3’. I get to the skinny spots with my engine trimmed...

What you described is not what the guy went to jail for. The shark he caught was drug alive. He knowingly drug it, laughing and maliciously.

I think 10 days and a ban for three years plus all the media coverage is enough to ruin his career for a long time unless he didn’t work. I think the fishing ban should have been longer. The dude...

Jail time for shark fisherman

Remember that dude who drug a shark and posted the video? He got ten days in jail. Do you think it’s enough time considering his face and name were posted all over the country? Or too little time?...

Gotta love the simplicity behind this one. I will certainly try it this weekend. Wish we could all jump on the boat and give each other’s methods a try. That might prove to be a good show.
