RE: Seaswirl Striper 2101 rough ride

I have an '02 2101 DC with a F225 Yamaha o/b equipped with Bennett tabs and the ride is sweet. My first season I had a hard time making myself trim the motor enough to get the correct bow...

RE: Yamaha F and LF 200-225 Recall Info

RE: JRC 1500 Mark II Radar

I bought the JRC 1500 radar this summer and have found it to work well. I was fortunate that a local marine electronics dealer in Portland (Rodgers Marine) had about ten working radars set up...
