  1. That's a great price. If it were a 20 inch I would take it. Good luck with the sale. I'm sure it will sell fast. + it is a very easy swap to a 20 HP with just 2 parts
  2. I go to other lakes and rivers. That's why I would like it to go a bit faster
  3. Lake restrictions of 9.9 hp. They don’t seem to care how many you hang on the transom. I upgraded them to 20 hp each. I am keeping my eyes open for a 90 or 115. The boat could be ordered with a 90 or 115 and the hull is rated to 200
  4. Yea, the hull weighs 1700, 2 engines at 120 each and four group 31 AGMs. Lots of weight. I will keep messing with it. I will get it going a bit faster. I just need 3-4 MPH to be satisfied
  5. This was a dealer rigged boat with the twin 8s. The only engines ever on the boat. I just don't know why they would have added 320 pounds to the stern. The logs in memory on the hummingbird says on multible routes 15 MPH and up the 18. Strange. I will try distributing the weight and trying again. I do know i'm underpowered. just trying to squeeze a little more speed out of her
  6. I have the cav plates 1/4 inch above the bottom. i can't figure out why the dealer placed 320 pound of extra weight in the engine well. I my put it back and see what happens.
  7. when I walk up to the bow when running the speed jumps up to 11.4. i know I'm close to plane. I wonder how it went 18 with twin 8 hp motors If I can just get it near 18/20 I will be satisfied. I am thinking about two hydro foils
  8. Here's what I got. My Boat is a 2010 G3 Angler 185F. 1700 pound hull. When I purchased the boat a couple of months ago it had a pair of 2010 Yamaha 8 HP engines mounted on it. I removed the 8 HP Yammis and replace them with a pair of 2021 Suzuki 9.9s upgraded to 20 HP each. I would have thought I would easily get up on plane with twin 20S. I have gone thru a few prop combinations. first i tried the supplied 9 1/4 x 5.5 Pusher props. RPMs hit the limiter quickly at 6.5 MPH. Next a pair of 9 1/4 x 11. 4200 RPMs at 9.5 MPH. Next I went down to 9 1/4 x 8. 5850 RPM at about 10 MPH. I then went to 9 1/4 x 7 4 Blade prop. RPMs hit limit at 7.1 MPH. The memory in the sonar unit says this boat went up to 18 MPH with the twin 8s. The strange thing about the boat is it had approx 320 pounds of weights in the transom well. I have not put them back in yet, but I can't understand what they would do to get the boat on plane. any thoughts? Thanks
  9. I recently purchased 2 of their 901 kits to extend the shafts on my twin Suzuki 9.9s. At first things seemed to go well. I received the kits and went about installing them. After opening the 2ng kit I noticed the bolts supplied were the wrong bolts. Too long. I called them and was told no problem, that they would send the proper ones. a couple days later I received the same wrong bolts. I called back and was told they were sorry and would ship the correct bolts. Later that day i received a message that they did not send anything out because they did not know the proper size to send. I have now had these kits for two weeks and cannot use my boat. I called again this morning and spoke with Mike Graziani (manager) and was berated by him and told the bolts shipped were correct and I should use them. Anyway, They agreed to once again sent me more bolts. I am not convinced they know what they are doing and will send the correct bolts. My advice concerning Bay Manufacturing...Stay away and buy something else.
  10. I receive the part. The engine will be ready tomorrow if you are interested
  11. Yes it is. I broke a part taking it off the boat. It is on order and should be in my hands in about a week. Everything is perfect if I don't screw anything else up. No Prop included.
  12. 2010 Yamaha 8 HP Engine long Shaft 25 Inch Remote with Flush Mount Controls & Cables 4 Stroke Electric Start Power Tilt Like New Perfect Condition New Jersey Location $1500.00
  13. Well I finished the twin 9.9 project. I'm mostly happy with the results. My final numbers are: With 2 people on board, a full bag of fuel, the trolling motor, and A pair of Canon elec downriggers, I am able to run at 24.4 MPH. with just myself in the boat I briefly hit 28 but mostly its at 27.6. Now I can try out other lakes and not be crawling along at 10 MPH.
  14. I’m interested. How much to ship it to New Jersey

    for sale : usa 1996 Ranger 250C Boat for sale

    The boat was just uncovered for the season. The detainers will be cleaning it up in the next couple of weeks. Boat looks and performs great. Great offshore machine. Would consider trade for 18 aluminum deep vee of equal value
  16. I finished the project and raised and tweaked the engines a bit. With 4 batteries and two people in the boat I was able to hit 27.8 mph. More than I expected. Now I have to mount my motor guide 24vlt motor and run the wires
  17. Ive been out there on 3 days when summer storms popped up without much waring. All three times at least 1 boat sunk. I have also towed boat in as storms approached. Safety is key. A little extra speed helps as well
  18. I purchased twin Suzuki 9.9 s for my boat last year. I can't say enough good things about the Suzuki. Elec start, fuel injected, power trim, and all for $2400.00. Another benifit of the Suzuki 9.9 is if you don't have enough power there are a couple of fixes. You can take out the breather restrictor plate and you now have a 15 HP engine, or swap the restrictor plate and the ECU and you have a true 20 HP engine. I just love my new Suzukis
  19. I just received a pair of TH Marine Mini Jack plates. It will give 4 inches of lift and a 4 inch setback for each engine. Now my question is, How close together should i mount the engines? I currently have them at 24 inch centers. I'm thinking of bringing that down to 17 inches. Any thoughts? Thanks
  20. Yea, I need to get the engines up a bit. About 3 inches. I just bit the bullet and ordered two TH Marine Mini Jack Plates. You can go up as high as 5 inches and it sets the motors back 4 inches. I'm pretty sure this will cure all my ills and give me a little extra speed. $150 for each bracket. now I just have to pull two engines and drill a bunch of new holes in my transom.
  21. Thanks for the info. I will be trying a few things as soon as I can get the boat back in the water
  22. I will look at my options. Short shaft is not one of them. maybe a hydrofoil may help
