  1. They are They are not asking a question in this case and if they had one to ask they should start a new post . My post is a complaint ? Try reading it again. It's a statement in case you can't comprehend what I wrote.
  2. Uhhhh,,, this is almost a 3 year old thread.
  3. Two year old thread , Blonkos has a habit of quoting a reply or post and nothing else. Scammer of some sort ? Bberke try starting a post with your particular issue instead of jacking / piggybacking this 2 + year old thread.
  4. Try Google , Fiberglass repair
  5. I would be afraid to run a outboard conversion to jet drive in anything less than 2 ft of water. How far down does the drive sit in the water vs a inboard that picks up and discharges water along the hull line ? Based on that I do not see the upside of using one in this part of town. Most people fishing that shallow are casting and maneuvering with a electric trolling motor. To each his own.
  6. Uhh they have been mfg for decades .There have been at least 3 FG ones made powered by jet ski motors, including Polaris and either BW and or Sea Ray. The NW is loaded with aluminum ones powered by GM blocks. Can't see trolling with them , very inefficient as well. No thanks.
  7. Captain Bob's on Main st in Clarence . Should be on Facebook if you want to call first.
  8. Barrier coat the hull and then paint it if you want to prevent growth. I use a ablative paint. You will not get any growth on the thru hull as it is located midship and will not see anysunlight which is where your algae is at it's worst. Now I just paint the transom ,waterline and bow area , pretty much where the sun hits the hull , the bottom will get touch ups if needed but nothing grows there without the sunlight.I also used blue paint for my first coat over the barrier coat the covered that with black , now I know where to touch up if need be. Not sure if you will be marking fish or bait while on a high speed plane. Never had any luck with that on my 3 thru hulls in various boats over the last few years.
  9. While I agree about using life jackets while going out solo I also don't presume he wasn't wearing one. Most sail boaters I see are wearing them ,more so than fishermen .Usually they have a safety cable that is attached to the cable railings as well . Could of been a medical thing and until they find the body I would not rush to judgment . Could be in a life jacket floating out there .RIP.
  10. More of a cosmetic thing . You have solid glass under the gel coat so water intrusion into a core is not a issue. Pretty much have to do what MCF mentioned . Those little blisters may grow in numbers over time. Depends on how much time ,effort and money you want to put into a 26 soon to be 27 year old hull. Either open up the big one and have a auto paint shop blend it in and they probably could repair it at a reasonable cost or live with it , can't see it from inside the boat ! The small ones would be a bigger PITA than I would want to deal with.
  11. Usually you go by your rated max RPMs for the engine ,what you are achieving with a normal load ,then go up or down in pitch based on that. Yes you will get better fuel economy , better speed and less wear on the engine if propped correctly. In your case you will also troll slower at the same rpms you were at before the new prop.
  12. Drive shaft grounding strap which should be lubricated with a petroleum based jelly or you will end up with a groove in your shaft over time. What is wrong with the one in the picture ?
  13. Might be a bit bigger than your looking for ,but you wont lose money on it and bigger is better on O. 1987 27 Tiara Open , 600 hours on rebuilt 350 crusaders ,1400 hours on hull. New Simrad GO 7 extra props ,new risers, exhaust manifolds. Soft top with Radar arch and launchers , asking 16,500. Friends boat , not listed anywhere else ,yet.
  14. Screamer Atommic on FB may be your best way to contact seller.
