Re: Trolling motor

You will want an 80 lb 24 volt at minimum...you really should not need more than that unless you fish rivers with a lot of current. Brand is up to where you can get the best service if needed. Motor guide, Minn Kota and Rhodan are the three big names out there. Features and benefits are up to you an...

Re: A Expanding and Trailerable Pontoon Boat

Very clever engineering right there. Wonder what the capacity is and does it change due to platform size???

Leaving dock on a flooded lake might be one thing, but I've canoed in a river in flood. I don't think you even want to consider that in a pontoon.
Agreed! Grew up fishing on a river and having a jon boat in current was tough, I cannot even imagine a toon.

Re: Christmas on the water....

Hell yeah! Hooters is just 10 miles up the river. Will just pick the sunniest and warmest day, pull up with wife, kids and dog and enjoy beer and wings on the sunny deck :drink4

Re: Fuel consumption

I would think if you lake is more than 10 miles long it would be wise to carry extra fuel. A small 1-2 gallon tank tucked away. Just make sure you empty it every time you refill.That way the gas never gets old. You could also purchase and install a 10-12 gallon poly tank and mount it where the 6 gal...

Re: New replacement cover source?

Just curious, how much does south bay want for a replacement?
A good quality cover for a pontoon boat, and I stress good quality, will be at least two grand for a quality fabric cover that fits well.

Re: Trailer options for a TriToon

I ordered a trailer for my tri toon wit 13 inch wheels for just this reason, The garage. Luckily I am building a new house with 10 tall foot door, My toon is at 9-3. My bunks sit directly on the fenders so there is no more lowering the boat. I could remove windshield and lower the canopy a bit more ...

Re: Entry Level TriToons

Also, my boat came with more bells and whistles than I really needed or wanted. Yes, cool and fun, but bells and whistles are always what break. Mine came with rear underwater lights, WTF? lasted maybe two weeks. Replaced by me, under warranty of course, and I think they were installed with the wron...

Re: Entry Level TriToons

for $45K you can buy a pretty decked out 22 foot tri with 200. List is much higher but I found they come down hard and fast. Once you start shopping you will see each toon has 10-20 different floor plans. Have fun and get exactly what you want. Most importantly buy from a dealer you like, trust and ...

Re: Verado 175 on new Tahoe

I just got a new Harris 22 with a 200 Verado. Same engine as yours. Already have 80 hours on it in four months. No complaints at all on the engine. If you do a search on the Hull truth you will not find too many issues with the Verados. Funny, but I had the same concern as you do but talked to a mec...
