  1. I used to do my own (before I started keeping my boat indoors). You might want to look into DR Shrink and consider doing it yourself. Ultimately saved me a ton of $$. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  2. First off, hull speed on your boat is about 6.7 mph, so anything beyond that the boat is planning. But you lack the hp to push it faster. I seriously doubt that twin 8 hp motors pushed it any faster than what your already seeing. And I don't think adding hydrofoils is going to do much else. The one thing that may help is making sure your cavitation plate is even with the bottom of your bloat. If its below, see if you can raise them up a hole or two. But overall, your simply under powered. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  3. How much for a pair of low mount? Shipping to Pennsylvania? Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  4. Use a light that clips on the rim of your hat. If its dark enought to need to see the counter. You probaably need it to change lures and remove hooks anyways. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  5. Ok. There are a few good posts over on The Hull Truth about the AP11. Alot of people seem to like them for trolling. They have a compass mode and gps mode. They also have a high speed mode and low speed mode. If its in compass mode, you have to manually select low speed. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  6. I know some older AP's can loose their heading at slow speeds. Not sure if the AP11 is in that category. My "compass" is a puck which is down in my cabin. I have a Simrad AP35. Was the AP on the boat when you bought it? Do you know if the previous owner had an issue trolling with it? Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  7. Make sure there is NOTHING metal near the compass. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  8. I know guys who run a 5' section of mono between colors on leadcore line, so they can attach it to boards at different lengths. I agree with whats said above, that it sounds like a pain, introduces multiple failure points, and can easily be solved with adding some weight. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  9. I thought the same thing about Cat's catching air, but there are two 34' Baha Cat's in Ashtabula on Lake Erie run by charters that I know. They are some really stable fishing machines. And when we get hit with those snotty short period waves we get on Erie, they have no problem going out and keeping pace with my 36' Tiara Open. They do look uncomfortable in a beam sea though...

  10. That's pretty crappy! But to put that in perspective. The 6 million gallons of sewage and waste is about 8 seconds worth of water flowing over the falls. So hopefully it gets diluted and washed down stream fairly quickly. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  11. How I have handled this is if you have two reels to do, do the first reel backwards (put the weighted steel on first, then fill with the 50 lbs braid). Then transfer onto the second reel keeping track on the counter how much braid goes on. Then fill the second reel using the same amount of braid and then the weighted steel.

  12. Check out this thread on THT. https://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-forum/958617-baha-owners-pls-help-propeller-size.html Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  13. I went with heavier boards that pull harder and run my rod tips above the toe line. That's addressed my problems with boards on my last three boats. My boards are 32" long with four 2' 1/2" allthread connecting them. Nice and heavy. Pull well and keep slack out of the line. I put pool noodles on the top sections of Allthread for flotation / visibility. I also run Great Lakes Planer plus 4' trees just in front of my windshield. Rod tips run above the toe line. That setup really works great. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  14. I use the 500 lbs spectra, but I don't care for the white color. Old eyes liked the high visibility orange I had previously. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  15. Call Bob Luellen @Worldwide Marine. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
