  5. they're definitely built tough, no question about it. good luck in your search. i looked for quite a while before i found the right one. searchtempest.com (a craigslist search tool) was very helpful as was google image search believe it or not.
  6. fwiw, i would have preferred an sst transom with an outboard instead of the i/o, but there weren't any available. i had a line on a 23' eagle hardtop with the sst, 200 hp outboard and a 15 hp kicker, but somebody beat me to it. then i found the eagle i now have currently. they're getting pretty hard to come by, the eagles and the sabres. guys tend to hang on to them, and i can see why. they're excellent boats.
  7. i'm a kicker fan also. i like the peace of mind in having a backup motor, plus you'll save gas and wear and tear and hours on the big motor. if it were me, i'd get the 15hp suzuki efi with full remote controls (non-tiller model) and an itroll for fine speed control. i would estimate it would push your rig at about 6 mph at full throttle. enough to get you back to the dock in an emergency.
  8. i have an eagle 2450, but it doesn't have the sst transom (i/o motor). i can say though, the transoms on these boats are very well built structurally. almost too well in my case, it can make it hard to get access at times.
  9. thanks guys. i've tried all the suggestions above. i did change the line on one reel back to planer board line. i had some that was pretty new that i had taken off of a broken riviera reel. it slides slightly better on that vs the braid on the other reel. i also added new shower curtain clips too. but, i think i figured out what the issue is.. on my old boat, the boards used to ride much further to the back creating less drag on the releases sliding down the line. now, new boat, new boards (otter boats), and they ride totally different. they now stay pretty much parallel with the boat, forward of the transom. i believe, at this angle, the release encounters more resistance when sliding down the line since it's angled rearward to a lesser degree. as is now, it's perfectly usable. improved with the new line(s) and shower curtain clips. it's just not as slick sliding as the old setup.
