power trim

I have a 1996 Johnson 90 Spl. The trim has never faultered and worked great last Nov with no evidence of problems. I have the boat with me here at work and raised the motor up to remove the motor support, it went up fine, but will not go down and the pump or motor sounds different when trying to mov...

Harley Davison owners

It seems Tin boat owners and bike owners go hand in hand. There are some nice scoots on here, and since the weathers is nasty here I got nothing better to do than read and post some pics of my old bikes.

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

Badbagger, Do you know how deep your Ark sits in the water? I will measure mine when I get home. I think I have a water line about 8 inches up from the bottom at the back of the boat.
By the looks of your living room you are really getting into your tin deep.

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

Dave, I think they would be a problem for you guys on the flats or in skinny water. Just off the top of my head I think they would add about 6-8 inches. The pistons are gas charged and the at rest position is always the same, but the tab has 5 adjustment holes for pressure adjustment.

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

With two men and standard fishing gear 43 is all I can get, 39 before the tabs all by gps. I believe I can squeeze a 2 to 4 more mph out of her. My motor is a little low and the prop is a 18 pitch. SeaArk told me on these boats that the more HP the higher you motor can be lifted. Your Jack plate wil...

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

Badbagger, I am posting the pics of the Smart tabs I installed on my Ark that I told you about. They made a difference on my boat. It had a whale tail on the motor and would porpoise with the small amount of trim. I have not did any mods to the boat yet except for the tabs and removing the tail, lea...

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

Dave, you could very well be right, but I didn't state it very clear I used the trim tabs instead of the angle. Sorry about my writing skills. I should have done one thing at a time so I would know exactly, but I was going on the word of a SeaArk engineer. He also told me they put pods on all the ne...

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

Bigwave's friend's boat may be different than ours, but he makes a good point about the big buddy. The size of the 1872 makes this boat very stable and it would take a very big person to make a real difference. As for the slow speeds I didn't have any issues to rectify, porpoising only happend at th...

Badbaggers SeaArk 1872 Modification & Restoration Project

I have the same boat, a 1996 1872MV with a 90 Johnson. It would porpoise at high speed if I tried to trim it even with the whaletail on the motor. I called SeaArk and talked to a engineer that told me to get rid of the tail and put trim tabs on the transom. He said to put 2 inch aluminum angle betwe...

Bow Gas Tank

Long time reader first time user. I love this site, this is better than building choppers. Alright to the point. I have just purchased a Sea Ark 1872cc and I am putting a front deck extension in her with a aluminum gas tank under it. My question is where can I get the type of filler neck that comes ...
