    Is my engine mounted too low - Livingston Warrior

    I’d replace the water pump etc before going any further. Then run it to see if that fixes the heat issue. If it’s not getting hot anymore then try moving up a notch. Or a smaller prop to get the RPMS up. Still getting hot? The motor could be too high and isn’t getting water flow (clean non...

    Move Gas tank or Battery forward to redistribute weight?

    I’d try it both ways. These boats are weight sensitive. Are you leaving it just as is? This is how mine looks now. I made sure I tested the weight of what/how I wanted it before I made it permanent

    Move Gas tank or Battery forward to redistribute weight?

    How’s your boat set up? Deck/windshield up front? Tiller? Center console? I’d separate the batteries from the fuel as a start. 40hp 2 stroke? If it’s 4stroke remove all extra weight from the stern.

    Livingston Issues & Recommendations

    I think the stern bench is connected to the hollow area between the tunnel skins. The newer models have 2 drains at the transom. In my opinion the best way to reinforce the hull if you have stress cracks at the keel areas, is from the inside. The floors are made of really thin plywood and...

    Livingston Issues & Recommendations

    So you have 2 drain plugs, more water on 1 side VS the other? I’d bet your getting water coming in through the seat bolts that are probably bolted thru the tunnel. The tunnel is hollow. See if you can look under the boat and check the area where the keel section flares up into the sponson...

    bathtub repair/fiberglass work?

    Never drywall mud, it cracks and in a mud bed takes a long time to dry. Mortar mix, tile thinset (what I use), fixall will work. Don’t weight or fill the tub. You want it supported from the base and not the tub rim , which if you weight it, the tub rim already has a load.

    Calico Short Strikes?

    Calico Short Strikes?

    Calico Short Strikes?

    I don't add the skirts, they are already on the warbaits when I buy them. I think it adds some extra movement/vibration, but I don't stop fishing the jig once it comes off.

  270. Mo Betta

    Calico Short Strikes?

    Short bites are usually small bass or a territorial bite from a bottom dweller. Just keep turning the handle when your bit. The bigger ones have no problem slurping down a 6-8" bait.

    To upgrade or not wellcraft

    I have the same boat as you. I can almost guarantee that your fuel tank will need to be replaced. ( I did mine last year ) Better to do it now then after you have sunk a bunch of money into upgrades. Oh and access to the fuel tank isn't the same as getting it out from under the deck.
  310. Mo Betta

    To upgrade or not wellcraft

    This year sure isn't like any of the previous years. So many fish swimming past San Diego, instead of San Diego being the upper limit of the fish.

    advice on local marlin needed

    I knew you were that kinda guy! This year has been a long time coming. What you see out there now isn't what we have had for many years now. That Marlin nut link is gold. I will say this, local striped marlin fight harder then the ones down in warmer water. Good Luck!
  530. Mo Betta

    advice on local marlin needed

    You want all of that your first year? Go out and fish, read the signs out on the water, make notes, learn to read a fish report by the things it doesn't say. Screw up and ask questions. It's the journey, that makes you a better fisherman.

    Bait keeps dying

    The bait supply has been tough. Demand is up, not allowing any cure time and the water is warm. Slow down heading out, the bait is fragile.
  536. Mo Betta

    Bait pump...

    Yup, back ordered at WM. Looked at my receipt for the pump, it was 4 years old. Looks like Amazon has it. Thanks guys
  537. Mo Betta

    Bait pump...

    Yeah could be, I've never had that much die off before. I think this one has about that many hours on it. I've got 2 back to back trips that I'm trying to make sense of. The bait pump is definitely an issue.
  538. Mo Betta

    Bait pump...

    I've been using the Rule 1100 tournament series pumps. 2 trips out it started making noise so I pulled it out, it had a little eel grass. Next trip out, no sound and no water flow. Pulled it out, it was clean. Clipped it back in, it's squeeling, but working, sort of. Killed a scoop of bait out...

    Should I install a Pacific Pilot house?!

    I think you may need a even bigger pilot house to fit all of your crew in there. Where are you planning on having Pops sit? He's going to want a back rest. We put my Dad in a bean bag, best seat in the house. If you want to have him try it out let me know, I'm in EC.

    You didn't miss a thing. It was slow Sunday. To quote FD... It was an off day. Dumped my entire bait tank trying to make it happen. Hard to find paddies in the lump. I don't know, maybe boat pressure along with weather contributed to the suckage.
