Re: VIBRATION IN MOTOR

Boat pulling to the right is standard for an improperly trimmed motor...…..it's due to engine torque. Adjust the little trim tab under the cavitation plate. Surprised this is happening....maybe the motor itself does have a problem---even with the low hours---could be some internal damage. A lot of p...

Re: Where to spend $2,000 tops for speed.

agreed of the sheeting. In addition to smoothing out the ride---the sheeting must be providing some front end lift to the boat. When I make speed runs I am 1-2 mph faster into the wind than with the wind. Only explanation is I am getting bow lift with the sheeting. Perhaps others can comment on this...

Re: New to Board

Love Alaska-been on the Kenai a couple times--but no great fish stories. Hope to make one more trip---wanta try those 30 inch rainbows on the Kenai. Good luck on the boat search.

Re: New to Board

Welcome! There are as many opinions about toons as there are toons! I personally think most if not all of the newer ones are of decent quality. It really comes down to personal taste, type of usage you plan to use it for, body of water it will be used in etc. If salt water you will want saltwater pa...

Re: Help! Can this be fixed?

geez...… Ray Charles coulda seen that... I would imagine you might have felt something when you hit it that hard... They broke it....probably have to sue in small claims to get them to fix it...unless they admit to it and repair. Not sure what the fix is--probably take off the end cap and add a new ...

Not sure if yours is the same but my buddy has a Sylvan Mirage and his leans to the left side also.

That's where the gas tank is.

30 gallons of fuel @ 6 lbs per gallon = 180 lbs sitting in the back left corner.

Re: Bunk glides

Squirrels took my carpet to build their condos plus my boards are shot. I don't trailer as I have a boat slip unless I need to take boat in for service so was wondering if it is worth the cost of the glides. If I recarpet I'll just be furnishing a new generation of squirrel condos. I have read where...
