Sketchy Shallow Run

Shallow, rocky, sketchy run to fish a stretch of river I've been wanting to hit for a couple of years. This run is pretty much the limit for my G3 and likely the last run I'll make on it. She's been a good boat, but I've reached the limits of its capability and there are waters worse than this that ...

Re: Tm lay down?

I stow with the prop to the side that I'm least likely to walk on. But, most people mount so that the motor is angle to the port side when stowed...I never thought that made any sense and mount mine so that it is angled to the starboard when stowed.

Re: Merc 80 Jet Enough for my 1860??

80 at the pump or 80 at the engine? 65 at the pump is the absolute lowest I would go for a 1860 coming in around 700-900lb dry weight.

Re: 12 volt vs 24 volt

I us a 24V #80 with an aftermarket Kippawa prop. The prop makes all the difference in the world. I need to give one of these a try. Have read a lot of good things about them. More overall power with a Kippawa? Night and day over a two-blade prop, the Kippawa prop moves a lot more water. When you sm...

Re: Guide on posts

Side bunks work much better for smaller boats. Only big boats that require deeper water to launch need guide-ons to show you where the trailer is underwater.

Re: Yeti

For the active man, this is the best coffee mug money can buy....and it's not that expensive. I have 3 and not a single one leaks. I use them year round from hunting out of treestand to kayaking. I wouldn't take anything for them. Coffee stays piping hot all day long. I like that you can toss it in ...

Yamaha F25 1st oil change

Should have changed the filter. The break in is for meeting parts to wear together. The F25 is a great motor...about bullet proof.

Maybe bowfishing

There are many bowfishing package bows available now ranging in price from $200-$600. Typically people go with either an AMS Retriever bottle reel or a traditional spinning reel setup. Both have advantages and disadvantages...so it's personal preference. I hate spinning and love the bottle...and the...

Float pod flooded with water

I wouldn't add more foam and hopefully the foam that is in there isn't already water logged. The risk to adding more foam is that it becomes water logged. As long as the foam isn't waterlogged you're good to go. The foam that's already inside may be there to add some structural support. Only remove ...

Lowe Pathfinder or G3 CCJ

Boats are very similar. I have a G3 1656 CCJ 60/40 (It's a 2013). Great boat, needs a little more horse power but does ok. I think your deciding factor is going to be the layout of the boat. I think the fuel capacity in the G3 is less than the Lowe boats as well. I can tell you that the G3 will take...

I would add a plate using mechanical faster, rivets or weld and weld grab bar to the plate.

Tracker Grizzly complete rebuild

Wow! A lot of work went into that. One tip on the Hydro-turf is that if you are crafty you can use a router table to route the edges. I've only seen it in photos....but it can be done. Might not be worth the effort, but it does give a really clean look for an up-charge.
