Re: Trailering Question, please

definitely, even covers designed to be trailered take a beating and can tear.

Re: Torqueedo 2.0 RS Cruise electric motor

I looked them up and it does say available in long or short shaft. Wondering if you got the wrong one???
If that is not the issue, maybe they are just designed for boats with very low transoms.

Harris uses two half-zippers. One for each side to mate the two together.
I don't think my 12 ft has a zipper, I may have to add a zipper if I plan to do this.

Re: Thinking about two tops

Florida sun can be brutal so that is why I am considering it, but also, when it gets too hot I really don't even want to be on the boat.

Thinking about two tops

Extending your cover to cover front of boat. Just curious, I have a new Harris with a 12 ft cover, would like to possibly extend to cover the front. Mine does not have a zipper to combine the two but could probably make it happen. How many of you guys have two covers and do not attach them and how m...

Re: Good and bad

Sounds like you had an AWESOME trip. I plan on doing something similar down here in FL on the St Johns river and intercoastal water way. I cannot vouch for PS quality, but just remember Sunbrella is a trade name, lots of other people make canopies out of very similar or exact same material. Also, th...

Re: VHF Radio antennea mounting

That's a pretty clean looking mount for the downrigger. Thanks. I am still looking at some options.

Re: VHF Radio antennea mounting

Thanks, yeah I am on a river 200 miles long, intercoastal 400+ miles long and venture into the gulf 15 miles off shore sometimes, so sometimes out of phone range, rarely, but does happen. The handheld is, well, is what it is, good for very short distance. Will probably use it more for fun/hobby than...

Re: Marine Parts Warehouse ?

I can't comment on that particular seller either, but like the others have said, I'd really think twice about the rebuilt. In your original repower post you were debating between a 60, 75 or 115HP. Most everyone recommended the largest option. It appears you've decided to go with a smaller option, ...

VHF Radio antennea mounting

I carry a handheld but would prefer a mounted radio for more power and longer distance.
Was curious where some of you, if any of you, have mounted the antennae (8 ft).
My canopy covers my drivers seat so mounting at console most likely will be an issue.

Any picks or ideas would be great.

thx

Re: New Pontoon Boat Owner-has some foolish questions

I am handy as hell but figuring out boat wiring is a myth to me. There is a rebuild and rehab section, you might get more help there. We have some pretty handy people on here so hopefully someone will chime in. I would not think you need to remove the motor. If so, yours is not too heavy anyways. go...

Re: Advice on Crest Savannah Tritoon

If the boat is fixed and running well, go enjoy it. I would ask what the initial issue was, just in case it happens again. As mentioned above, the selling dealer is the one to help you deal with anything Crest related. I feel your pain, sounds like a nightmare, but this is a lesson for all, buy loca...

Re: Verado 150 engine code reset

Do you trust the mechanics word? Not trying to bash but I have not heard of engine codes getting out of whack. I am no mechanic by ANY means, but my understanding is that engine codes tell you something is or went wrong and that simply re-setting the code does not fix the problem just turns off the ...
