    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...

Only estimated boat weight and elevation. What impact would a 7” pitch vs 8” pitch have on overall performance? I...

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

    I have a 2003 Crestliner 14’ aluminum boat with built in decks. The boat is kind of on the heavy side for the existing motor. The boat likely weighs around 1500-2000 pounds dry. It’s fitted with a 2003 Honda BF15 4 stroke. I recently moved from So. Cal to Montana and noticed that the boats...

    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.

    Need some tips for San Diego area inshore fishing

    A week or so ago, I posted regarding RV camping in the SD area. Thanks for the suggestions as I am staying at campland. I decided to bring my boat. Since I will heading to SD for trade shows, for the most part I will be limited to twilight fishing. I am looking for somes suggestions on where...

    Bait tank pump problems

    Thanks again for the info.. When I said "next" about fixing the valve, I did mean before the next trip and was my next priority... The valve is just a bit seized for my arms but with some liquid wrench and some more muscle, it should free right up.. I still plan on adding a ball valve on the...

    Bait tank pump problems

    Only problem with the experimentation is that the cartridges cost $25 each.. I may monkey with it a bit, but at risk of killing another pump, I am not sure it is worth the trouble, now that I know the root cause of the issue. At the very least, I do feel a bit better knowing the cause, dealing...

    Bait tank pump problems

    It is good to know that I am not the only one with this problem... I do have a valve between the pump and intake but I need some liquid wrench as it is really tough to get at and open. I am not sure that will help to much with the issue but I guess restricting the flow in should do the trick...

    Bait tank pump problems

    I have a 30 gallon tank on my boat that has a Rule 700 pumping it.. I have killed 2 pump cartridges on as many trips and both were brand new. The intake for the bait tank pump is on the bottom of the boat and not the transom. The vents on the intake face forward. I noticed that the tank...

    Hose clamps

    Great info. I wish I saw this thread Friday. That is somthing I should have done this weekend before I went out. I completely forgot to put clamps on my new wash down pump which I had installed last week. After heading out Saturday and bogging the boat down thinking I had an engine problem, I...

    Trim Tabs... Electric or Hydrolic

    I am looking to add trim tabs to my 20' Trophy.. It tends to list to one side probably due to the kicker motor.. I was looking at Lenco electric trim tabs or Bennet Hydraulic tabs but not really sure which is the best way to go with an easy install. Either way, would be a 9"x12" config...

    Fisherman Arrested

    People like this give fishermen bad names. As if road rage isn't bad enough, now we have fishermens rage or seal rage. Yea, the seals may be a pain or even out of control but as it was mentioned earlier in this thread or another one, we are fishing in THEIR backyard.. I am also sure that we (as...

    San Diego Area RV camping on the water and fishing. Need suggestions!

    I am coming out to SD for 4-5 days starting around the 6th of August for a trade show at the SD convention center.. I was planning on staying at a hotel but then got to thinking about taking my motorhome and possibly my boat (20' Trophy) and staying in the RV at a park on the water instead of a...

    Floscan

    This is an intersting topic.. I did some checking on the Northstar F210 and have some questions about these and flow scans.. The F210's specs mention carburated engines but not fuel injected and I have a FI outboard yamaha 4 stroke.. Most FI engines have a return line to the fuel tank.. Do...

    You wont believe this one!

    I think it must have been one of those new Mega Moo Moos! Intead of throwing an iron, they are now equiped with guns.. You must have been in their chum line! Gives a whole new meaning to Rocket Launchers! That is pretty crazy though. An experience you will never forget!

    Offshore 7-26 182 Afternoon Run

    Damn.. At least you caught some good dinner! I have to keep my spear gun on my boat along with a mask! That alone would make a slow trip worth while.

    which outboard motor do you prefer?

    I only have 37 hours on my Yam 150 FI four stroke and no complaints other than you cant tell if it is running at times because it is so damn quiet! Thuth is I have always owned Yamaha bikes so I was very happy to have this outboard on my boat. So far I love it.. Though more power is always...

    Chumming for Albies

    I know this is probably the wrong forum to post this in, in which case I am sorry. Since this seems to be Albacore central, I figured I would ask here as I am most likely to get the fastest response from the more knowledgable folks. I am probably heading to San Diego and then off to 181/182 or...

    Need: Yellow head pics that has been eaten by a seal for a local newspaper

    Oddly enough, the last time I launched out of Marina Del Rey, Fish and Game was on the dock. One thing they kept asking was about seals and if they were a problem for us.. They asked multiple times. It seems that maybe they trying to get a grip on the scope of the problem. It was the first time...

    New Rode

    I was told that the plaited line takes up much less (50%) than standard 3 strand which for me was important as my anchor chain locker is pretty small..

    New Rode

    I ordered a new rode yesterday for my Lewmar Pro-fish.. I was going to go with lewmar plaited 8 brade rode but it was too expensive. I went with defender.com and they made me the same 300 ft 8 plait rode with a 15' chain for much less than I could have bought the Lewmar rode. I think the...
