    Removable Bow gate you use it?

    We have a bow gate seat in our boat. Keep it on the port side. Rarely does anyone sit there. WE mostly use it to put our cooler on it

    Advice on model choices

    2.5-3' of water is about as shallow as you want to boat in. Some spots where I boat get pretty shallow (2-3') and as long as I trim it up I havent had many issues. One prop ding is all my ESP package has suffered in shallow water

    Stainless Steel Swingback Keeper Rail

    I saw that one on RDP. The sighting officer seems like he was being a jerk! Either way it wont stop me from letting people ride back there. My wife has never done water patrol out of Needles but her sister in law has many times. They wont site you for sitting back there unless your hanging...

    Installed powered sub today

    One year in and I've had no issues. I had mine installed directly to the kicker head unit for power and sound as opposed to tapping into a rear speaker wire. Wonder if that is causing some of the issues?

    Stainless Steel Swingback Keeper Rail

    My wife works for the San Bernardino County Sheriff department and we boat exclusively on Havasu. It is not a ticket able offense to ride back there with the keeper rail. So long as the gate is closed and the chain is pulled. That being said, there are 5 agencies that patrol that water way...

    Installed powered sub today

    That’s too bad. Plenty of other places for Yamaha to place that! I have the Merc Verado 350. Only thing in the front part of the swingback is the Ski pylon. Plenty of room!

    Prop selection for Q25 w/300 Verado

    Well, took the boat out yesterday for a fun day on the water and a speed test with the motor mounted in the 3rd hole. Here is what I found. Just the wife and I, half a tank of fuel and both Bimini's deployed. 50.1MPH at 6200RPM's trimmed 5.4 degrees. Water conditions were perfect, very...

    Question for you new Q owners

    I agree the stock sound system isnt the best at speed but I think it sounds good when stopped. I added the Rockford Fosgate 12" internally powered sub. Added the depth that only a sub can add and changed the way the entire system sounds...
