are you just wanting something to mark the end of your trailer when it is in the water? if thats it then what about using a CB anntenna? It has a 3/8" bolt at the end and can easly be attatched to a frame

new guy with qeustion on motor mounting height?

on that small of a motor raising the motor height wont make hardly any diffrence at all. your problem is most likly it not getting up on plane with only you in the rear of the boat and it "plowing" too much water, did you have the motor trimmed all the way down?

King Pin Style Seating System

the seats do have a bit of movement in them when I mash down on the gas with the 200 hp motor and someone is sitting in them, but they just have to learn to hold on to the side rail not to fall backwards :lol:

I have them on my boat. the real key to keeping them is to have them anchored extreamly strong to the floor and a crossmember. these are screwed into 1/8" floor then 4 of the screws are into a crossmember, and after 5 years they are still holding tigh...

basic live well question

I had a livewell in the center seet on a 20' flat btm boat with the drain hole straight thru the btm... thats all that hole is good for, when in the water it will only fill up 2" -3" at the most you will definently have to have a pump at the rear of the boat sucking in water to fill up the livewell,

basic live well question

if you just put a tube from your livewell thru the botm of the boat with no pump its only going to fill up a couple of inches and thats it.
