  2. Opinions please

    I like the darker, to much up keep on the lighter.
  3. 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
  4. 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

  7. 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.
  8. Atlas Rocket Launch

    Yes from what the scientists say about the vastness of space. I would have to believe that we are not alone.
  9. Atlas Rocket Launch

    Very cool,would love to see a launch some day.
  10. New fish finder install

    I have not had any issues, I also installed one the same way on my 2014 Benny too. For your Lowrance you might want to go to the next size ram mount mine does wobble a little, but does not flex the fiberglass. I will probably up size mine. I also would not be worried about the warranty and in my opinion it will support it just fine.
  11. Thanks Daril It was good, busy, and to short. Hope you guys did too, other than the little break down you had with your boat. Hoping to head to Florida to see the grandson this winter and if we drive I will have to make a detour to stopand say high. To Carl too. Boat is put to bed for the winter and waiting for the next season to start.
  12. Moisture in gauges

    Same gauge on mine fogs fuel, trim, volts. The others do not. Can take up to two hours to clear up. It is being replaced in a few weeks.
  13. Motor shut down........

    Sorry to hear, Hope you get it figured out. Other than that, hope you and Diane are having a good Summer. Tell her I said Hi. Will have to try to make it down there again.
