Re: Looking for tips for buying a used boat

Mine was a '99 , the saltwater series at idle only runs on two cylinders and the lag time between idle and speed drove me nuts. A big hesitation on putting power to it. I on have two 150 etec's. In 2013 I bought the motor for the Trophy and what a difference. Over the winter I went Canada and picked...

Re: Looking for tips for buying a used boat

When I bought my Trophy it had a Merc 125 saltwater 2-stroke, and I couldn't get it off the boat fast enough. Just a turd!!!!! Love my Eninrude Etec. 2-strokes are good if you get like a 2000 or later. The newer motors are more fuel efficient and nearly to no smoke. The Etec's start instantly and ha...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Re: Looking for tips for buying a used boat

That looks like a good deal for newer 4 strokes. I have a 18' trophy and I like very well. I'd stay away from Arima's, my son-in-law has a 17' and if you like getting wet in choppy water you will, plus they have a small fuel tank. My trophy handles rough water with very little water over the bow and...

Re: Crawfish, carp and trout, underwater trap footage

I think your video says a lot. Your bait needs to be so it can't feed the crawfish outside the trap. and put the opening facing deep water so that is the side they come to first. Good show!

Re: 2-stroke motors, huh??

Hey Chris, Don't discount the Evinrude E-tecs. They have the best toque and emissions of any outboard. I have three boats and they all have e-tecs. No oil mixing, no smoke, start very easily and very quite. That 2006 you are talking about has an oil tank. let me know if I can help. [thumbsup]

Re: Cleaning Fiberglass.

I used 30 sec. outdoor cleaner on my Livingston that was like that. Sprayed it on, wait 30 sec scrub it with a car brush and respite as needed. And it looked like new!
