Spectrum dominator speed increase

I have a 1994 Dominator 16 with a 25hp Mercury and can get 25mph with just me in the boat. I would think that a 40 would get you to at least 30-35 mph.

You’re crazy Jim! :LOL2:

I like Zona but sometimes he can be a bit much. I do enjoy MLF.

Mercury vs. Quicksilver vs. Solas Props

I have one of those 25hp Mercs. It’s a 1994 and runs like a Swiss watch. I just put a new prop on mine. Tore the other one pretty bad. I would have gone with a Solas if I was sure I was getting the right one. I ended up putting a Mercury 13p on there. I have a 16 foot tin bass boat, full wood decks,...

Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall

My wife has already had the one in my boat and the one in the RV replaced due to the recall. They will send you the shipping label to send the old one back.

You are getting old

B-B Gun fights, hacking a branch out of the neighbors ash tree to make a sling shot with bicycle inner tubes for the rubber bands, taking guns to school for "show and tell" then taking that gun to the woods after school to do some hunting, playing cards in the spokes of your bicycle, going to a fri...

tracker carpet?

I think the newer Trackers have 16 ounce. I put 16 oz in my Spectrum refurbish. It's not crazy plush but feels OK to me.

Camping

Mike, that place is amazing!
I used to be a big tent camping guy. When my son as younger we would go every other weekend from March through November. My wife doesn't like to rough it. My son is grown up and moved out so now my wife and I have a class C RV. It's the only way I can get her to camp.

Repurposing old props?

I guess if I had a dinged up prop, and I thought about using it as a spare...I'd be concerned that the "old" prop would be off-kilter enough so that I had to worry about ruining some bearings or even bending my shaft. Sure, for a putt-putt home in an emergency, it would be OK. But, I think I'd have...

Repurposing old props?

I mangled up the prop on my 25hp Merc. I can usually run 25mph in that boat.Had it out one day and the zinc trim tab came loose and made contact with the prop. The sound it was making had me thinking I blew something in the motor. Suddenly it smoothed back out and I made a run back up the river but ...

Houston at our house, for anyone who cares....

Wow Rich, I hope you stay on the right side of luck! I've seen the coverage on TV and it's bad down there. It's amazing seeing bass boats in the streets.

G-force TM handle on Edge TM?

i think I read a post or review where someone put one on an Edge. I'm curious as I broke the original rope on mine a few trips ago while loading my boat on the trailer. I replaced it with some tie line I had laying around but it has a little too much stretch and I feel like it won't last long. It wa...
