Re: bigger motor

I've got a 75 on my 20 footer. When it was brand new and the water was smooth as glass, at wide open i got up to 24-25 miles per hour. Last time I checked the speed, probably a year or two ago I was getting 21-22 mph wide open.

Re: July 4th Weekend Plans

well I never take the boat out on the 4th. Too many drunks on the water and makes me nervous... I live in a small country community and for the past several years they throw a little 4th of july bash. It's on a golf course, they'll have a live contry band performing for 2 hours or so and then they p...

Re: This forum has a wealth of knowledge

Bill, glad your enjoying the forum and you're right,there is a wealth of information on these boards. I was brand new to boating in general and specifically Pontoon boats when I went and bought my pontoon about 9 years ago. The first year I had it I was so frustrated that I was ready to sell the boa...

Re: Water Impeller

Just had the water impeller replaced on my 75 horse Yamaha 4 stroke about 2 weeks ago.. had someone do it... He charged me 30 bucks for the Impeller and around a hundred to put it in... I don't think it's excessively hard.. Go to youtube and search for a video on it.. I watched a couple recently.. d...

Re: What gauges do you find a necessity to have?

My boat doesn't have too many gauges... it has: Fuel Gauge..... in my opinion pretty important, but get a decent one.. some of the fuel gauges out there are like the temperature gauge on a barbcue pit... not worth a damn. Tach: no speedometer on my boat, so I reference the tach quite a bit.. Trim Ga...

Maybe gas line "liner" is collapsing.?
with my limited knowledge, I would sure think this could be an issue, especially if he's been running fuel with ethanol in it.. From what I've read ethanol really does a number on rubber hoses and fuel lines.

Re: boat service cost

As for the dumb mass that charged $25 for air? I'd have told him to french kiss my fat ass on main street at noon time. That was a strange thing.. when I dropped the boat off for service I just mentioned to the guy that one of my trailer tires looked low and would they mind checking it before I cam...

Re: boat service cost

Roland, I'm new to the world of outboards, so I had a mobile service guy come out to do mine - and teach me at the same time. The shop that he works for, is about 25 minutes away. They charge $100/hr for their mobile service labor rate. Mobile service was important to me because I don’t trust my tr...

boat service cost

Hey folks, wanted to ask you all about the cost of having your outboard serviced before the season. I know that a lot of you do the service yourself, but some of you, like me, take it in and have it serviced.. I didn't have the work done at a boat dealership, but I did take it to a marine mechanic s...

Re: Family Guy (Peter) launching boat

I can remember on one of our first times out on the boat, it took me about 10 minut...
