Re: Opinions on Smart Tabs Needed

Even though I was skeptical, I put them on my 18.5' semi-tunnel to help get the butt out of the water. They did that, plus gave me a better ride in the chop. Very little bow rise, turning, slowing...

RE: Portable Sirius Reciever Hook-Up

Thanks Duct Tape - That looks to be what I need.
I knew there were units with volume control, but I already own 2 units without it.

RE: Portable Sirius Reciever Hook-Up

That's one of the issues I'm trying to solve right now. The ipod has a volume control. No problem. I have 2 sirius plug&play's, but they have no volume control. I have a boombox for 1 of them, but...

RE: The nerve of some people

I'll chime in here a little with my personal take on the borrowed boat.
While I was evacuated in TN, I found some sat images of my house. I saw a big shiny spot where I left my boat in the driveway....

RE: Magic tilt trailers

Without going to any real details, my experience with Magic Tilt is that the trailer at first appeared acceptable, but I found the Customer Service sucked, at least for me.
My trailer was seriously...

RE: Flushing Johnson 115 w/out earmuffs?

I have the same 2000 Johnson 115. I've always flushed through the port with the engine running, so after reading these replies, I checked the factory "Operation & Maintenence Manual".
As per the...

RE: tunnel hull or not

Good point, iron banks. Cool.
I do have older style hull. I actually didn't realize there were newer technology tunnels available. The ones I've seen on newer boats (ie: Blue Wave) are still the...

RE: tunnel hull or not

I have a 18.5' tunnel hull bay boat.
The handling is slow and the ride is bumpy. It tends to slide around corners until it bites, then it's like riding a bronc. Less speed than a "V" because of so...

Re: Are there ones that do both land and sea

After a quick look, the 478 is a good unit for that price. I have a 276c w/ topo maps, and City Select, and no Blue Chart. I don't know about "City Navigator", but City Select is as good as it gets....

RE: Trailer Questin

The load capacity differences between the two are obviously large. Trailering a lightweight boat on a large capacity trailer will basically be riding solid. Not too good for the lighter boat if you...

Re: external speaker sysem w/ 12 volt adapter for Garmin GPSMAP276c

Life got the better of me for a couple of weeks. I'm still interested in the cable if you have it.

I would like this if you still have it. Mine came apart last week, breaking the connections. I'm lost without this woman telling me where to go. :grin:

RE: Johnson outboards (year 2000)

I have a 2000 115 carbed engine. I picked it up for a steal in 2004 in a crate because of the reputation of OMC for that year. I chose it because those engine platforms are/were considered...

Damn. I'll find it on eBay. Do you have a link? I was interested, but you didn't want to ship. Are you shipping now?

Re: Avenger Boats

John did check in at www.HuntnFish.com where he has his own forum.
His shop sustained some roof damage, but the boats appear fine. He's trying to figure a way to get to his shop and boats before the...

Re: true water tight hatch.

Any more on this?
I'm adding two 13"x30"(?) hatches to my Palm Beach BayDancer. I'll be walking on them. So I need them to be strong and watertight. They're replacing the hinged cushions. Am I...

Re: bunk slides?

I would think really hard about using countersunk screws to hold the plastic. At least facing the hull of the boat. Or watch carefully for screws backing out. I gave this some thought, and decided...

Re: PALM BEACH BOATS

I have a 185 BayDancer that I use for the SE Louisiana marsh. I've been running it for @ 8 mos. (I think) most every weekend. It is a fairly heavy, very solid boat. Roomy, too. I couldn't think of a...

RE: 24 volt battery charger for Trolling Motor

There ARE 24v chargers.
Also, you can make a homemade one by "handshaking" 2 12v chargers.

RE: TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR

It would be easier to count the weekends we're not out. The dollar value pales in comparison to the value of the time my family (wife & three kids) spends together. Now that it's winter, the kids...

RE: Minn Kota Riptide

I have a Palm Beach 185 BayDancer , and I use a MinnKota 74# 3X. This boat is fairly heavy, and it will leave a small wake behind it. It also runs forever on a charge.

RE: 6 guage wiring
