    Prop lock......

    Okay I finally ordered a prop lock for my current boat. It's going to be stored on a lift in a No Wake zone near a popular cove where golfers have to hit over the water/boats to the green. So alot of boat traffic will be going by. For my Mercury 150 I ordered the McGard 74039 from Walmart.com...

    Opportunity to use a lift....

    Don't know if you guys remember but our neighbor sold the waterfront lot across the street from our house where we have kept our boat/s for the last 6 years. So the search has been on to find another home for our boat. Well we found one. About a 5 or 6 minute drive away in the next neighborhood...

    Ceramic coating.

    Who's familiar with the ceramic coating of pontoons?!? There's a new detail shop that opened up near us. They'll detail anything and everything! Anyway I saw the sign for ceramic coating. So I went in and asked about the process (Very similar to Shark hide) and of course the price to do 3 entire...

    Charging duel batteries

    My current boat has a built in charger to charge the batteries. Just plug it in and that's it. But here's the question that I can't find in the owners manual. When I plug it in do I have to do anything with the duel battery switch?!? Or just leave it be and the charger charges both automatically?

    Mercury extended coverage.....

    This was our first year with our Mercury 150 outboard. Couldn't be happier with it's holeshot, quiet operation, and overall performance. Today Mercury sent me a Platinum extended service warranty offer for when my original warranty expires in 2022. For an additional 5 yrs. of coverage Mercury...

    Double Bimini top.....

    Went to a concert by boat last night. A local artist plays on a dock in a cove and all of the boats anchor or raft up. On the way there is a low railroad trestle bridge. Well the biminis had to be taken down and put in the trailer position to fit under. Then once under we had to reassemble...

    Mini barnacles in a fresh water lake?!

    Anchored in a No Wake cove today and after lunch decided to do some pontoon and outboard cleaning. Felt little "bumps" on the outboard and found this. Some can be scraped off with my fingernail and some can be rubbed off with a rag. Some break when you try to scrape it and turns white. Some...

My wife skiied and my daughter wakeboarded behind it yesterday for the first time and it had alot more torque than we thought. Yanked them...
