Impeller polishing

I'm usually not looking for gravel/sand but my main river when it gets really low late summer/early fall is when smallie fishing is best, and some riffles it's unavoidable to get through sucking up some. Like I said the polishing can help, I haven't bothered with spending the time to do it or spendi...

Merc 80 Jet Enough for my 1860??

An 1860 will be fine with a115/80 unless the boat is a pig weight wise, it won't scream, but it should plane out just fine. The funny thing a lot of people think the 2060 vs an 1860 will plan slower than the 1860 with the same engine, but you'd be surprised. The 2060 will draft less and actually pla...

Etec 60HO

I'd say 34-36mph depending on load and setup, sure some 60/40's are seeing this, but it will beat a 60/40 by far when your loaded down in terms of top speed and time to plane out.

Etec 60HO

where are you running it? If your running in SEMO and going on the ozark scenic river ways with the HP restrictions the 60ho with a pump is going to be your fastest motor. This is because it's actually the same displacement same three cylinder block as the 75/90hp etec. So it's sold as a 60hp with a...

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

nice hopefully it isn't too wore out. I still have my old wore out one that I welded on sitting on my work bench, haven't gotten around still to trying figure out a good way to turn it back down.

Help deciding what to do with my set up.

So what did you end up doing, jets typically need to be trimmed all the way down (tucked in) to get on plane well. Then you can try and trim up some to increase top speed. Your original jack plate is setting it back too far, it can work with a jack plate, but if your staying with the jet just take i...

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. I don't know if any manufacturer has bow to stern supports other than Edge Boats https:/...

Boat size for 1992 50/35 Johnson

if your not beating up the bottom on your boat then you didn't need a jet, or your just not using your boat. My boat has it's fair share of dents just part of it if your using a jet boat for what it's intended.

Tough hooks

I like gam hooks you can get them in bulk packs for not too much money off ebay or jann's. I've also just this past year started trying the the academy sports brand of hooks h2o xpress they're surprisingly good especially given the price. The ones I have are made in south korea which was a surprise ...

Tungsten Price comparison

gnappi they're a little more expensive than the frog you posted, but you should try the z man frogs. They are incredibly tough, and float so if you want to pause them they don't sink down. I'd venture to say they would last even with snake heads biting them unless you get broken off. The down side t...

Was a lot of fun at first it didn't fight much but when it got close enough to see the boat it took off drag zinging drag a ...

Is the 2nd Gen Terrova really THAT bad?

well hopefully the terrova 2nd gens with the ipilot link aren't too bad, I wasn't really looking but have half hazardly been keeping my eyes open for a 24v motor for a little more power in current. Well I came by one near where my mom lives for got the guy down to $650 didn't seem like a bad deal 24...
