Re: New Boat Motor questions

I've always lived by the rule to change the water impeller every 2 years, 3 at the most... that price of 800 is extremely high.. I don't have the paperwork in front of me, but I had my impeller changed out 2 years ago plus had the motor serviced.. things like oil change, plugs, filters etc and I th...

Re: New Boat Motor questions

I just got a 2013 Crest 23' with a 2012 115hp Mercury 4 stroke. Is there a problem with the 2012 engines? I have noticed that the water flow when I hook it up on land is very little but in the water it seems to be better. Is this an impeller problem or is there a seperate water pump. Does the impel...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!!!!

Craig... good to see you and your family back out on the water.... How long has it been? We've been out three times this year, but before that, it was 2 years ago the last time we took the looney toon out... Forgot how much I really enjoyed being out on the lake again..

Re: Newbie Question?

If not aloud Mods please delete. We are looking for a Pontoon. Honestly best deals we have came across are at Bass Pro / Cabelas, however; I’ve read on here and heard before to try and find a local dealer and not go through them. What’s the reasoning behind this? Honest question as I have no clue. ...

Re: Bennington or Manitou - how to choose

As others have stated, both are very good brands. As to which is the best, I can't tell you that. I can tell you that I have a 10 year old Bennington.. Bought it new prior to the 2010 boating season.. not a high end model either, basically one of Benningtons " value " models. In ten years I have onl...

Re: Ready Jack

Looks interesting enough.. But I wonder how stable it would be at it's highest point... and speaking of high, $279 for a jack seems pretty inflated to me.. but that's just my opinion.

Re: 4C Innovations Pontoon Loader

I used to have issues loading on my trailer until I bought some trailer guides.. they're nothing more than pvc pipes that fit on a bracket bolted to the back end of the trailer.. one on each side, and they make lining up to load much easier.. nice thing is they slide right off the brackets so you ca...

Re: 20' South Bay 220 cr 90HP merc top speed

I think you're pretty close to being right on the money... I have a 20 footer with a 75 horse and I get about 23 to 24 at wot, which is right at 6K rpm.

Re: Axle bearing failures

Last year I was walking up to my truck and trailer from the dock to pull the boat out and I noticed one of my bunks was almost completely disconnected. It turns out I was missing 3 out of the 4 screws that hold the bunk on. I never thought to check them. I checked the rest and they were all loose. ...

Dunno about the pic posting but glad you could hit the water. How's the salvinia problem---heard it's pretty bad. Where did you launch? Back when I lived up there I launched a couple times at the Hwy 43 bridge and once motored all the way to Jefferson--nice trip// WWIND3... we launched at the bridg...

Congratulations... I love that color ( maybe because my Bennington is the same color )... ours is a 10 year old fishing model but I love that layout on your new toon..... Looks like you're going to get it just in time for the boating season.. congrats again.. beautiful rig.
