    Need prop advice Honda BF15 on 14’ aluminum boat, poor performance at 3200 ft Altitude

    We are just outside of Kalispell. I love love love this area! So many lakes and rivers to fish. I actually love the winter as that brings on ice fishing and easy access to different spots on lakes that you can’t get a boat into. I picked up a snowmobile as soon as we moved here so I can get out...

    Thank you very much for the advice. Do you think that will add much to my top end speed? It sure would be nice to get across some of our bigger lakes faster!

    My new boat.. Glacier Bay 2680

    It's been so long, I couldn't tell you but I can tell you have I figured it out. I basically ran a string from point A to Point B following the route the cables would go. Then I measured the string to determine the cable lengths needed.

    PM me your address and I can check rates but like I said, shipping will be costly due to the weight, dimensions of the box and insured value. .

    Gunnel Mount 12v Electric Stainless Steel Chum Grinder In Good Working Condition

    Where are you located? I would be afraid it would get damaged in shipping. Its heavy and would require a large box. Shipping would likely get expensive too. if I had to guess, shipping will likely be $40
