  1. Just my luck. Hit the lake today and gas was $3.09. Dropped it .40 cents for the holiday...
  2. 3.49 for 93 non ethanol at my marina. Been 3.49 since last 7/4 but was bumped up then from 3.29. I filled up last weekend in case they decide to raise it again this yr. everyone have a safe weekend.
  3. Thanks for the update mbhenry. Sounds like the enertia is what you needed. enjoy and let us know of you lift it another hole.
  4. Thanks alice dream. Up one hole and to a 151/5x17 is where I think I need to be. Spinning a 151/5x16 now at 6000 and 45/46 but the plate is buried. I believe the vf250 (my motor) and your f300 are very similar so this helps.
  5. Anyone out there running an x shaft yamaha on anything other than the lowest position. Thinking of going up one pitch and raising the motor one hole. At plane the cav plate is nowhere to be seen. At current position I can trim almost fully before ventilation. Do get some in tight turns if not trimmed all the way in.
  6. Congrats on getting the correct setup and props to your dealer for the helpfulness. Now enjoy the hell out of that sweet boat.
  7. Very nice. Congrats
  8. Will be interesting to see if customer service changes over time. Maine max greenville was for forty years family owned hall marine. They sold out last fall. They smartly seemed to have kept must of the staff and that so far has led to the continuation of the service I was used to from hall marine. I can only hope that continues over time.
  9. Go with ken's recommendation. The guy knows his stuff
  10. Scott and the gang there have been very good to me also. Glad you've experienced the same customer service.
  11. On the flip side....we took delivery of our boat the week after our vacation last year and it worked out great. Really lessened the typical vacation is over blues.
  12. Sounds great. Keep me posted on how it all shakes out. Prop/motor height is something I'm still sorting out myself as I want the best all around performance I can get as I'm sure you do. Pretty awesome the Honda rep is helping.
  13. Think you'll be fine. I have vf250 (vmax) on a smaller boat (Gsr 2250) that started life with a 15 1/4 by 18 swsII . Ran fine but only turned 5400 rpm. Swapped to the 15 1-2/16 and rpm's are closer to 6000. Really wanted the 17 to try but Yamaha and their back ordered props made it difficult. Can't wait to hear how it runs
  14. Not a prop or boat expert by any means but I do own a 2250 with a Yamaha 250. Have a few questions before you change props. 1) what length shaft is on the Honda 250? And 2) have you run the boat with the motor mounted in the lowest setting? I've run two props first being a 15 1/4 by 18 Yamaha sws11 that ran 47 but only at 5400, held water fine with 25 inch shaft mounted in lowest position. My new prop is a 15 1/2 by 16 and rpms are up but not sure exactly where as the boat has been in the slip all year and have certainly lost speed and rpm from the bottom growth. The water is warm enough my kids are getting in but I'm not tough enough to get in and clean it up yet. This prop also seems to have good grip. I guess my first suggestion would be to either drop the motor (if you've never had it mounted there) or get a larger diameter prop as 14 seems a little small for such a heavy boat. Sorry for the chapter book. Ken over at band of boaters (props and performance section) is quite the expert in such matters and is quick to reply to questions (sells props)
  15. Awesome man. Congrats. Love that helm and the 300 looks like a monster back there
