  1. Yamaha SDS or not for F150

    Did you take deliver of your F200 with the typical black prop and then upgrade or did the dealer swap it out for you? My F150 came from the dealer with an aluminum black prop on it and it works very nicely until you really load the boat up. After that it just doesn't allow the motor to get it's muscle to the water effectively.
  2. Going to order a new Yamaha Reliance stainless prop for my 2275GCW and I'm wondering if SDS is worth the extra money for the prop and the thrust washer that needs to be purchased with it. I have noticed just a touch of gear noise at idle with the black aluminum prop the boat is currently wearing. Any thoughts?

  8. Extra wide captains chair

    The stern lounge upgrade has been a "no regrets" option. I like the ability to sit facing forward or lounging backwards and the added speakers really fill the whole boat with sound. If you're extra tall you may have other thoughts though. I'm 5' 10" and have no problems stretching out an relaxing. So far, the only regrets I have after three years is the carpet, next boat will have none or perhaps snap-in. It's holding up fine but does require a lot of maintenance to keep the nap standing up.
  9. Extra wide captains chair

    This is my extra-wide helm chair at my non-elevated G helm. After three years I wouldn't have it any other way. In the second picture you can see that it really doesn't hamper traffic past the helm. I paired it with the Co-Captains Lounge that You don't seem to see much of but I like it a lot, too! I haven't been on here in a while. Good to see a few familiar faces.
  10. Things I would change (formerly Regrets)

    After 2 full summers with my G if I would do anything over it would be to go with the Seagrass through out the boat and have the snap in carpeting for when I wanted carpeting. Otherwise I've been very satisfied with my choices.
  11. After a slight delay...

    Coming out of hibernation... Thanks for the PM BeezyB. Roused me the rest of the way. I see we have new software here, all sorts of improvements. As I said in the PM, I like Bill a whole lot and I like the way he goes the extra mile for you, whether you bought from him or not. He's a forward looker, would love to earn your next buy. Let us know what you think. In the mean time... we need to get rid of this April snow.
