Thanks. I believe we have done all that -- need to double check that it was done for both displays -- but it seemed like the VV GPS was still somehow interfering even with the right GPS source set...

Vessel View gps confusing Garmin GPS and AP comms

I'm running dual 8622s and quad mercs and suddenly a few weeks ago ran into an Auto Pilot - GPS communications issue where when I select a place to navigate to on the Garmins, the pop-up asking if I...

I took delivery of a 392 w/ quad Vrod 350s about a month ago. It's been great. Exceptional fit/finish and just a really well thought out and laid out boat for fishing. As far as ride, it eats up chop...

Seeking FIRST-HAND experience w/ any clear coating used instead of bottom paint

I know ceramic pro marine claims the coating can be used below the waterline instead of bottom paint. I want to hear from anyone who has first-hand experience with this on a boat wet slipped and left...

I sold a YF34 last year that I'd run for 7 years with twin F350s. My mph numbers were just about identical to this, but my fuel efficiency was not quite this good. With the load described I would...

I ran one for about 7 years. Solid, but I would look elsewhere if I were buying a new flats boat. If you have a good deal on a used one, no reason not to bite. My 3 main complaints:

1) It required...

I have a 392 SF in build now for delivery in about 6 weeks. Yes, it's a much smaller and less beamy boat than the 40+ boats it's often compared to in these THT threads, but that's a feature not a bug...

I have run that exact boat for 8 years with twin F350s and it performs very well. The YF34 was originally designed around that twin F350 platform. As you probably know, though, that motor has had...

JB HC and mono diameters

What is the MINIMUM size mono that will hold when spliced into 200# JB HC? Basically, can I use 100# diamond mono with 200# HC or do I need to go up to 130# mono to be confident the HC will grip the...

Yup, very cramped. And Reg 28 won't feel much more spacious -- a tad more in the bow, but otherwise pretty similar. That's part of my point above.

Well some of this depends on where you're based/boating/fishing, but my 2 cents on this is that I don't really like the 28/29' class of cc at all b/c IMO it's a tweener class of boat that neither...

Exactly. That was the whole point I was making in my posts in this thread. That's why the 400m and 400r are of no real use to me.

Not to mention not everyone is trolling, jigging and/or bottom fishing. If you're light tackle topwater casting/popping and/or flyrodding some/much of the time, you want an open boat to fish from the...

Depends what you do IMO.

If you mostly run inshore/nearshore/bay and only occasionally make long open ocean runs picking your days, I think the 32Z is an awesome platform -- extremely efficient...

I agree with this. I think the 322Z is much more proportional in terms of how it's laid out. It also gives better performance (and range) even with same power b/c it's a stepped hull. If it were me,...

I just don't get why anyone would go V400 over V350 (if they're not racing). My understanding is the power curves are identical and the extra 50hp only comes above 6400 RPMs via the V400 (or 400R)...

I agree with this. I HST now and then on a stepped hull (YF34) and it is a bit tricky b/c you're running right at that speed the boat wants to come on/off plane so have to work the throttles quite a...
