Thanks Kevin. I appreciate the insight. You're right about making the wrong purchase used, that's why I was starting local. We have a good group of fisherman around here that try to take care of one another and sometimes you know a little more about a local motor.
Definitely can be frustrating, but glad I got a beater 16 foot back-up boat. Won't miss the fall run!

My 1987 Yamaha 175 hp just gave up the ghost on my 20 ft. Grady White, so I am looking to re-power. Looking for 150-200 hp with a 25 inch shaft length. Perhaps somebody is looking to upgrade to a four stroke and has a solid two stroke, or knows somebody who does. At this point, I am open to different options 90's or 2000's, or even a solid late 80's. Of course an older Yamaha will plug and play on my set-up, but open to anything.

It was great to see all the smiles on the kids faces as they were casting their new rod and reel combos. Thanks for the great day! :thmb:

A pair of 14 foot Outriggers off my 20' Grady White. All rigging seems to be in place including glass rings. I have never used them and have no need for them. $50.

Sorry to hear that. It sure looks like a sweet ride on Craigslist, but I'm sure pictures don't show problems. Too bad the guy didn't just level with you and save you the driving and the heartbreak.  sad()

Boat and Tackle Setups / Drill Once! AskTwice!!
« on: April 25, 2015, 08:07:38 PM »
Drilling tomorrow to put the rod holder trees in. Looking to run a dipsy and two boards on each side. Dance floor is approximately 8 x 8. I am going to run riggers on 45 degrees this year which makes the 5 foot boom stick out 3 feet wider than the transom width. I use 10 foot dipsy rods so should clear the rigger lines.

Is there anything else I should consider as far as how far aft or forward to put these. Right now they are about at the half-way point o dance floor (50 inches from back-- 20 foot boat).

Appreciate any comments or suggestions before the drill comes out tomorrow.

Not sure what the underside of the rail looks like,

I think it is fiberglass over wood substructure. I was thinking about through bolting the rail bases and backing them either with an aluminum plate, or large washers.

Thanks for the tips about the caps.

Thanks Dan. Great idea on the caps. (I had to google Chicago screws to see what they looked like. Basically a screw-rivet hybrid-- cool!)

I decided to buy the 6 inch tracks for the bottom of the pedestal and make sure I do it right and make it secure.

Boat and Tackle Setups / Bert's Rod Holder Install Question
« on: April 18, 2015, 04:07:09 PM »
I'm planning on installing these two rod holder trees on my Grady White next week. My original thinking was to buy a 6" track and back it with a plate or large washers and put the pedestal in the track. However, I was wondering if I could directly install the pedestal to the rail and back it with plate or washers. Wasn't sure if the second way is strong enough for magnum dipsies. I'm really interested if you guys think both ways would be strong enough, or just the first way.

Also, I don't have easy access to my rails so I was planning on cutting out an access panel on both sides and installing marine speakers for a stereo. Kind of a 2 for 1 deal.

Let me know what you guys think,

There can be a lot of luck out on the seas.

Good luck- A double limit when you take your friend who doesn't know how to fish.
Bad luck- engine problems, skunks, dead batteries, and even once a fire in the outboard.

I like the traditions associated with the naming practices of boats, it's kind of cool. But as for giving credit, sacrifice, or prayers to Poseidon and Neptune -- Not me! (And these pretender are certainly not getting any of my beer.)  :beer:

Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them—
    he remains faithful forever. (Psalm 146:5-6)

No problem. Thanks for considering.
