Re: Getting Around the "Pre-Rig" Issue

I have never heard of a Scout pre-rigged with a particular engine. This must be a dealer preference. Give Scout a call and see what their position is.

Re: Fuel Gauge Issues

Marine sending units are notorious for being fickle. I'll bet that 75% do not work properly: due to design and subjection to corrosion. You are not the only one with this issue, including...

Re: ETEC 115 WOT? Dealer full of crap?

Raise the engine up one notch, may be two, on the transom. I guarantee you that your RPM's will increase, as well as your boat speed, hole shot, and fuel economy.

Re: stuck in rev limiter mode (yamaha 200HP)

Re: "Old School" Navigation

"Old School" navigation is definitely a lost art. Grew up sailing that way and have never forgotten how to navigate that way. I can remember when I got my first! Nevertheless, I still...

Re: New BF 90 Honda Problems! Motor will not run, towed in.

Re: ETEC tilts down w/o pressing switch

It could be a leak in the hydraulics, that is, if it drops down slowly. Otherwise, it is probably a bad relay.

Re: ETEC 115 WOTC? Dealer full of crap?

Go up a notch or two on the engine mounts and you'll get higher RPM's and speed. Your prop and shaft are too low in the water thereby creating a lot of friction.

Re: Crab pot markers: A navigational hazard?

It is my understanding that crab pots are not supposed to be located in a navigational channel per CG regs. But, guess what, they are there anyway. It is probably an enforcement issue or rather a...

Re: electric fuel pump and marine grade?

I think the "marine vs auto" issue comes into place as to what is accepted by the Coast Guard for marine use. Personally, I would use only "marine grade" wiring because it is tinned(to minimize...

Re: Keeping Batteries Charged on Outdoor Trailer?

Re: Scout 280 Ride Quality

The Scout is a Chevy and the Contender is a Porsche in terms of go-fast rides due to the very deep V that knifes through the waves. There really is no comparison between the two from this...

Make sure that you have spare tire(s) for the trailer AND a lug nut wrench that fits the trailer wheels. Check hubs every so often and enjoy the LONG drive... I have done that trip to MA.
