New boat build - 1648 Grizzly with 60/40 Jet

Great boat. I have a 2015 1648 with a 2 stroke Merc 60/40 and it is really a perfect bass fishing river boat. If you don't know there is a channel that runs down the center of the boat you can fish wires through.

Anyone here have or know someone with K5?

I'd like to talk to someone who has had K5 installed on a jet boat to see if it is worth the money. My opinion, wetlander is not.

Jet Comparison

Does the boat have a tiller prop motor on it now? What size engine is on it? Usually you see 115/80 or 90/65 jets on 18ft boats but the 60/40 may "work" if you don't have a tunnel.

Mercury 35 jet

The only differences in the 35 jet and the 40 jet are the stickers, price and programming. They are essentially the same engine. Mercury just starting making the 35 jet a year ago, so finding a used one is going to be pretty hard. The 65 jet and the 80 jet are the same both the same engine just diff...

Has anyone ran the 4S SS impeller in a 2S

Look what I've got! I bought another boat with a 2002 Mercury 60/40 jet. It has the Mercury 2 stroke stainless 3 blade impeller. I'm still running the 4S stainless 3 blade. I may do a parking lot swap comparison after the holiday weekend.

Lowe Pathfinder or G3 CCJ

I'd like to see under the floor of both of them. I don't know if they have any supports welded to the floor that run from bow to stern. I think they both only have the stamped girders that go from side to side.

Help deciding what to do with my set up.

Is this 1/4 inch between the spray plate and the foot an issue? Or will that be alright for delivering clean water to the foot?? 20190416_195603.jpg The plate isn't meant to deliver clean water. It keeps the spray off the transom from hitting the pump then coming right back down in front of the int...

G3 should offer .125 hull and pods.

Is the 2nd Gen Terrova really THAT bad?

I got my new (to me) motor! I found a deal on a used 3rd gen. 80lb/45" iPilot Terrova with bluetooth from a guy nearby that was upgrading to an Ultrex. I've only been able to spend about 30 mins on the water with it so far. The spot lock is impressive to say the least. With a very strong current it ...

Help deciding what to do with my set up.

You can disassemble the jack plate and use only one side to make a super stiff transom riser that will allow you to bolt the motor up where it needs to be. My brother's old boat had a riser built the same way except it was welded. So take the jack plate apart so you have two very thick heavy duty pi...

Is the 2nd Gen Terrova really THAT bad?

Yeah I've heard nothing but good reports on the new bluetooth models. I'd like to get the 55lb Terrova but I'm a little scared it will eat up the battery. I fish in river current a lot and the reason I want a motor with spot lock is so I can stop in the current without having to anchor, so I plan on...

Is the 2nd Gen Terrova really THAT bad?

The spot lock / anchor mode is definitely the driving factor for me. I've used a Xi5 and not having a cable drive bow mount motor is going to take some getting used to but I'm willing to adjust to gain the anchor features. I'm just gonna save up for the new Terrova. I was thinking about trying to fi...

Is the 2nd Gen Terrova really THAT bad?

I really want a trolling motor with spot lock. I want to be able to hit the anchor button in river current and stop floating off down stream. I've ready a bunch of posts about the Terrova and it seems like the 2nd Gen really has a bad rap regarding the spot lock feature. Is it THAT bad? I don't need...

E-Tec tiller on OMC 3cyl.

I'm amazed at the tiller jet boats out in MO. I want to go out there and check out these rivers. Center console boats are pretty much the norm here in Georgia / Tennessee. Are there many rocks? Are the river bottoms sand and mud?

Combo seat swivel AP/B class?

I have had the 3/4" push in pins in my boat since 2002. Have 2 posts with seats that can be moved to the deck or in the floor. I have a Grizzly that came with the 3/4 holes up front and in the back. I tried an old pedestal in one of those and it was very loose feeling. I think the pedestal may have...
