    Pontoon Water Glide.

    I followed the other thread. Did not find that very helpful. I think the Benny express tube option that adds just a few mph gain in not even close to the projected and tested gains of 30 percent or more of the water glide. I am very interested in that product. Not something I could do till next...

    Mecury 115 4 stroke motor issues

    I have two full days of use since the repair and all is well with the motor running. I do have a new rattle from somewhere in the stern. I know the shielding under the boat had some crappy pop rivets let go. I fixed a few of those in the past, hoping that issue is something easy to resolve

    Bird-B-Gone question

    Hi Adam. Yes I am the blue 2250 in the slip that is in front of the little BB beach area. Let me know if you want a hand installing the mount point on the vent cover. A cordless drills, two long bolts, two lock nuts and 5 mins and it will be done :-) I am surprised you have not noticed my...

    Bird-B-Gone question

    The seagulls here will sit on a boat with as little as 1sq ft not protected by some deterrent. In order to keep them off my boat I have the bird be gone on the cover pole which covers the front 1/3 and a rubber alligator zip tied to the vent cover towards the stern. I also have a blowup shark...

    Mecury 115 4 stroke motor issues

    Good new. My awesome marina Brookfield bay got the motor repaired today . It needed a new float switch . I ran if for an hour just now and it seems good. Will give it lots of use this weekend and hopefully confirm it is fixed

    I also did the platinum coverage, so the cost was not an issue it was missing prime boating in a very short season here in ct.

    Bird-B-Gone question

    Mount it directly to the plastic pole cap via two nut and bolts.. You might need to get the "railmount" style pin vs that bag pin you have. Do you have a close up of how the pin is attached to the bag. I ordered mine with the rail mount (but only used the top part, which I simply drilled and...

    Read this if you are trying to decide between a 115 and 150 HP

    2010 model 2250 RCW. 25 to 26 mph with just me and a full tank of gas with the Merc 115. No question for me that motor is not enough if you ever plan any watersports use. When we tube we have always have a full boat. I have to try and limit to 8 people, 6 is really the max and at that I am at...

    Mecury 115 4 stroke motor issues

    I believe one of the few places in ct you might be able to get ethanol free gas is at an airport. Our marina only uses hi-test but it does have ethanol. I am not ready to blame ethanol as bad as it is for the fueling issues. I think Merc had poor quality components and or design elements of...
