Personally, given your stated usage, I'd go Yamaha F-150s. (I couldn't be happier with mine) However, an E-Tec will give you more torque and hole shot. Do a search... there's a Seaswirl on here that...

Find a local marine surveyor and get them to check it out and send you pics... It would be a lot more cost effective than a trip from NOLA, and if you're serious about it, you'll know exactly what...

Clearly you're letting common sense and safety concerns interfere. One has to adopt that special, "Hey ya'll, watch this" mentality to make decisions like these guys. :grin:

I have a strange feeling the group on board isn't big on current events, or reading in general.

With a rope tied from the lower unit to the bow, it might have saved 4. Easier to hold a rope than a slick hull in high seas. Also easier to second guess after the fact, not having been through a...

Nice set up, and perfect for a quick bailout or grab if it all goes wrong. The faster you can get it away from the boat and in your hands, the better.

68 degrees... but the air plummeted into the 40s overnight with the cold front.

It was blowing hard this morning still in the Tarpon Springs area, north of Clearwater.

We ran out of New Port Richey yesterday at noon. Steady winds like you said, 20-25, headed South to Anclote in a head sea so a smooth enough run. Headed back at 4 p.m. was a different story --...

Re: FINALLY FOUND MY 23 KINGFISH BOAT!!!

CopyKat,
no one here is impressed.

A simple truth I've discovered in life is that those who have the most, tend to talk the least. Share your $200/hour bravado with an audience that cares....

W/A is perfect on a 23, but doesn't leave much left on a 19'.

Re: Son looking at Trophy 1902

I'm not a Trophy fan, so I'll leave that to the owners, but I think you are 100% correct on the W/A assessment. His wife will use that space maybe a half dozen times as it's cramped and hot as hell...
