Re: How to keep pontoon seats looking brand new?????

I use 303 protectant, but the most important thing I’ve found is to keep the seats clean. I wipe mine off either when the dew’s still on them, or use a spray bottle of water, several days per week. Mine stays in the water, and the bugs that are drawn to my security light wind up stuck to the seats b...

Re: How many of us are running a dual battery setup?

I have a dual battery setup with a Perco master switch. The pontoon boat came rigged that way, though I don’t think it really needs it (60 HP FS Mercury outboard). My airboat is rigged similarly, and it does need it (Edelbrock 454 CID 425 HP V8). It all depends on how much work the electrical system...

Re: Tow Vehicle for 24' toon w 115 merc

I have a ‘12 Dodge Ram quad cab 1500 4X2 with the 5.7 motor that I use to pull an 18’ aluminum and stainless with a big block 454 airboat, 24’ pontoon with 65hp four stroke merc, and I used to pull a 24’ huricane with 200hp Yamaha with it. No problems at all, including running at 65-70 MPH (or highe...

Re: mounting "through" pontoon rail

[quote="jediger"]Hi all, I'm doing the winter dreaming and planning thing since I can't actually take the boat out right now. I'd like to add a Ram mount to my front rail so i could move my fishfinder up there at times. This is made slightly more complicated by Premier's paneled fencing. I could dri...

Re: Water problem?

I've had the Raycor setup in several boats over the years; they work very well! That said, I wouldn't mount one in the motor pod. Mine have always been mounted inside the boat, somewhere around the gas tank. I had one Crest pontoon boat years ago that had the fuel tank in the motor pod; certainly no...

Check to see if your fuel filter/water separator is full of water. That'll starve the engine of fuel at higher RPM's, but it'll run at lower speeds fine.

Re: Radio blowout

I have an '05 Bentley that we bought in February of this year. It came with a master battery switch, and two batteries. I turn the battery switch off when we get back to our dock, and have not had any battery problems. Due to our rainy season here, the boat's gone over a month between use a couple o...
