    For Sale 2004 Hydra-Sports 2400cc Vector (same as 2390)

    Only had a minor issue with the current engine (clogged remote oil tank filter). There was some sediments in the oil tank but I cleaned it all out and haven't had an issue since. Other than that, I'm thinking of going with twins since I usually go 20+ mi offshore and I want redundancy.

    I'll still sell it. The boat I was interested in sold so kind of lost motivation to sell this one. If this boat doesn't sell, I'll keep it and repower it next year. BTW, I also added a Garmin Fantom radar to it last month.

    Progressive or non progressive press

    It's pretty easy to load. Just read the book first and watch a few youtube vids. Get a chrono too so you can dial in your scope. For rifle, you'll most likely never get a double charge since if you do, powder will be spilling out the case and you won't be able to seat a bullet.

    Progressive or non progressive press

    Get both. You can get a cheap single stage used for $50. Since you're doing a lot of rifle reloads, the progressive will save you a lot of time in just the brass prep alone. I used to prep brass on a single stage and now do it all on a progressive. For precision loads, I finish off on the...

    Recommendations for pier fishing?

    You can catch salmon, kingfish and anchovies at pacifica. Salmon require a special bobber rig which you can buy at a local shop there. The anchovies will hit sabikis and the kingfish will hit high low rig with pieces of anchovy. Its better to go on a weekday at pacifica as the locals get really...

    Where's the rest of the trailer?

    What's the length of the boat? How heavy is it? If it's a light boat, you night get away with a single axle. Anyway, it sounds like a great deal but if it was so great, why is it still available? Especially during prime boating season?

    Drifiting For Halibut SF Bay Question

    Only a 6hr trip? That's pretty short. The party boats usually leave at 6 and get you back around 2. Live bait drifting is great but if the bite is tough, I find trolling popsicles to be more productive.

    When will the wind die down?

    Early mornings are usually OK. In the afternoon, it'll get windy. Thus is the usual pattern in late spring to summer. There will be a few days here and there where it will be calm but you have to be ready to be sick that day from work ;)
