    Mine also included the male plug needed.
  3. 2017 SSRX 21' Yamaha 90 VS 115

    I had a 20ft S series 2 toons and no strakeswith 90 and was told by the dealer at the time that it was sufficient. It went around 22or so. But the minute I put a load on it I was down significantly. I had that boat about 10 months and then upgraded to a 21ft S series with SPS and a 150. The performance difference between these two are night and day. Now the difference between the 90 and 115 I do not have and experience with. If I hadto choose between the 90 and 115, I would go with the 115. Also cable vs hydraulic, I had cable on my 90 was fine and would think it would be on the 115 also. I have hydraulic on my 150 andstill need 2 hands once in a while.If you want real easy then you would need power assist hydraulic. Which I believe for a 115 would not be necessary.
  4. Mid America Trailer Good Choice?

    I do not have a Mid American trailer. But have been looking at new ones and that would be one of my top choices. They are a good trailer. And there are a few that have them on this site so I am sure they will chime in. so imo you would have a quality trailer. Oh and welcome to the club.

  7. Opinions please

    I like the darker, to much up keep on the lighter.
  8. I have a 21sfxapg tri toon with sps and a 150 Yamaha. So this boat is fairly heavy.You can see pics in my gallery titled 2014 Benny. I up graded from a min Kota power drive v2 12 volt 55lbs to a min Kota ulterra 24volt 80lbs. I havebothbatteriesin the front starboard (right) storage area or trolling motor battery compartment, if it is set up that way from the factory. And yes 2 size 27 batteries will fit in there. I did not think they would fit either but someone one told me they would so I tried andthey do. Makes for a much easier upgrade to a bigger trolling motor I can look and see if I have a pic with both batteries in there, not sure if I have one
  9. Yes it will help. I had a 55 and switched to an 80. With the 55 it was ok in a light breeze but if the wind picked up at all then it was much harder to control and I had to turn up the speed to almost max a lot of the time. Well then your battery drainsdown faster. After I installed the 80 it was much easier and I actually had longer battery life. But the other side of that is the trolling motor is more expensive and I had to go to 2 batteries because it went from a 12 volt system to a 24 volt system. Hope this helps

  12. NEW 22SSRX

    Welcome from a fellow Minnesotan where do you boat at, may I ask All depends on what you intend to use it for.A 20 is ok for some and a 300 is not enough for others.
