Re: How was everyone's boating season?

Only been to the lake twice this year. Next trip up, going to pull the boat back home for some customizing projects for the winter. Nice thing about the end of boating season for me... Riding season starts. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v249/DesertSkies/smileys/VroomVroom.gif http://img.photobuc...

Re: Need help, new regency 220dlx. Cavatating and tilt issue

My 90 CT came with a 15 which was too much. Bass Pro sent me a 13P which made mine happy. It really depends on the gears. My 2014 has 2.07 where some have the 2.38 gears.

Re: Deadliest Catch From A Pontoon Boat

Luck of the draw. If weather blows in on you, you won't be able to outrun it and heavy waves can be a bitch in a toon. We submarined ours once on a lake when a blue front kicked the waves to 3 foot going the same direction we needed to go. Big wave came in under the stern and we punched right throug...

Re: Damage done?

Had this happen on a 115 once. Piece of the impeller came off and went into the feed tube to the power head. It restricted the flow to where it would overheat if run on plane for around a mile. Took a while to figure it out cause at slower speeds, I got no alarm.

Re: Damage done?

I see your point but wouldn't this only be true if the master switch was a Pergo style switch that disconnects the batteries from the motor and the boat? My older boats master switch disconnects just the boats fuse panel from the battery but leaves the battery connected to the motor and its charging...

Re: Damage done?

Check to see if the alternator still works. Running without a load is not a good thing. Huh??? Which part didn't you understand? Well, let's keep this short and talk in layman terms please. Could you explain how running an outboard in the water vs out of the water affects the load on the alternator?

Re: Decal placement (replacement?) for new Sun Tracker 18

I put it on the stern of the "wife's" but did take off the Fishn' Barge lettering to do so.

Glad you are getting things sorted out. Once you get the RPM up into the operating range, I think you'll be a happy camper.

Re: Premier Explorer 221 with Trolling Motor

Don't have one but the PE 221 looks like any other pontoon and only option is to mount it between the front seats and out the front gate. I have the Terrova on my Tracker and the one thing about these motors is they require hanging past the edge of the desk. I went with the polymer mount so it is ea...
