You can get a quick disconnect for your antenna at most truck stops. Store the antenna with rods when not in use. I had one on my Jeep for parking garages.

I would be a little upset in that the tank should be center mounted if possible. That makes you carry 175 pounds or so of beer on the starboard side to get a level ride!
And you see a problem with that? :lol3

Re: Sunken pontoon

Your plan could work, as long as your pumping rate outruns the leakage rate - AND you have adequate air coming in as the water pumps out. Remember that most pontoon tubes (even old ones) are segmented with 2-4 sealed sections. Make sure that you are not just drilling into a section that has no water...

Re: Heading to a new home

Hey, the old boat looks great - that's why it sold fast! Now a new family will enjoy your hard work building it.
Your new boat will create the memories that your daughter will remember most, down the road.

Re: Torqueedo 2.0 RS Cruise electric motor

Whoops, I took it mean that the prop was high out of the water unless there were more than two people aboard, sinking the stern lower. Sometimes my reading comprehension lags behind :lol3

Re: Manual anchoring set ups for bow of pontoons

I really like that idea, Bansil! Our boat came with a fluke and a mushroom, but we really don't anchor. Our lake is very sandy and heavily wooded, so we sometimes beach and tie off, but generally head back to the boathouse for breaks - and refills - and more ice - and more. BUT, I am going to rig my...

Re: Torqueedo 2.0 RS Cruise electric motor

Throw some big AGM batteries on the stern! Did you buy the long or short shaft version?

Re: Engine winterizing

To me, it all depends upon exactly what was done to winterize it and whether it is injected, TBI or conventional carb'd. If the fuel was properly drained, flushed and emptied, my vote is to let it wait. Some folks prefer to kill the ignition, but crank it several times - long enough to pump oil thro...

Re: Advice on Crest Savannah Tritoon

So, if I understand correctly:

You paid cash for the boat in November and it was faulty from first use.
Crest is telling you to go to Hell.
Your boat is at the dealer's location.
Your boat is now fixed.

Does this summarize it correctly? If so, I would be all kinds of pissed off.

Re: Repowering

Just a couple of quick thoughts: Remember that warranties are only as good as who is standing behind it. I would be asking for the hours on each motor that you are considering. Depending upon brand, you can often get a download of hours and percentage of hours at various throttle settings. Since you...

Re: This years winter upgrade

Nice layout, very functional and attractive. The raised lip around the top counter surface is a critical component!
