I'm gonna try the new GP80 Terminator for my 40 set up to replace the Pred. Also will try a GP80 Pred. Will...

    Just wondering how much diesel did you guys burn ? one way 8 hours ? My crapper 2 stroke gets 1.5 mpg. I always wondered how much fuel a big sportfisher gets. Just curious.... Thanks, Brian

    Which Anchor???

    Get a Bruce or Claw style. A 11 lb anchor with 1/4 in chain will hold you tight. I have a 22' with the same anchor and 20' of 5/16 chain. Should of picked up 1/4" instead. I do have a windlass though. Brian

    Transom Mount Baitpump ?

    I had 2 Montauks in the past. Both pumps were mounted above the flat surface to the left of where your bunk ends. The pump that was perfect were the Rule Transom Mount with the built in bracket. The bottom of the pump was set at an angle and would pick up water even at the slowest speeds. As...

    VHF RADIO???

    Ditto on antenna. Dont get the under $100 ones. You get what you pay for with antennas. I had a cheapo $60 one and it was a POS. I went with at Shaeksphere? 5225XT or XP something like that? it was around a $129 or so. The difference was nite and day.

    bait pump noisy

    From all of my past pumps they have only lasted about 2-3 years. Everytime I hear that bait pump squeel it means ok, the next trip or so its gonna die. Sure enough without fail. Now days I use the Rule 1100 pump with the replaceable cartridge. 2 clips, snip 2 wires pop the new pump in...

    Catalina in 17' Whaler

    I have a Montauk 17, in fact it is for sale on the boat for sale board. I have had 2 Montauks over the past 7 years and I must say the Montauk loves swells and rough water. In rough water I ride over the swells instead of up and down in the swell. Its a bit bumpy but the boat handles great...

    Walk Around Question

    Is this a outboard motor ? The reason is because it might not matter with a 25ft boat but I have a 22 with a 3 sided Strataglass semi-enclosure on my walk around. When the wind shifts or moving slowly be careful with carbon monoxide poisoning if you get a full wrap around enclosure. Even with my...

    Outboard Problem/Question

    This problem was a same problem that I had on my Suzuki. Starts up and runs fine up to 3500rpm. When the engine hits the 3500 marks the motor would not go past that rpm. The motor would back down to 3000. The problem was the oil sensor. This item when it gets old or clogged would sense a...
