  1. Summer is going good, but to fast, we are on a 2 week vacation now. Trying to get as much time on the Benny as possible. Darcy is good, today is her b-day so we spent most of the day on the boat. Hope your summer is going good too. And how is Diane, tell her we said hi.
  2. Darril check DJI's web site, the price all depends on what you want. These are some better ones. I also have 2 quad copters (drones) a DJI Phantom 3 standard and also DJI Mavic Pro. The mavic pro is very nice, it is powerful and has a lot of internal flight options, very compact and portable. And phantom 3 standard is a good starter if you don't want to spend a lot.
  3. Happy birthday everyone and happy belated birthday Andy. Been awhile since I have been on.
  4. Looks great Daril, like the rest would love to see pics on the water.
  5. Happy birthday fastmnstealth
  6. Mine also included the male plug needed.
  7. I had a 20ft S series 2 toons and no strakes with 90 and was told by the dealer at the time that it was sufficient. It went around 22 or 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 had to 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 and still 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Thanks everyone Acually I am in Florida for work then been doing some boating and flying, Darcy had to stay home because she had to work. So I had to celebrate with out her.

  11. I like the darker, to much up keep on the lighter.
  12. 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 have both batteries in 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 and they 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
  13. 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 drains down 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
