    4 Week Algae Growth = 5mph loss (just another data point)

    Yea, the part on the bunks would be a problem. There was no tag on it to my recollection. The brush I used is a nylon bristle with a lot of give. I want to try a “scratch pad” type and see. I’ll be going up to lake for labor day so I will try a few things. Thanks!!

    4 Week Algae Growth = 5mph loss (just another data point)

    Great question! Maybe it wasnt actually put on at factory....? it sat in the lake from memorial day to the 4th without any love so that was enough for me to not be able to scrub. Im going to try a pad and see. I was using a nylon bristle hand brush and it did nothing. def going to power wash...

    4 Week Algae Growth = 5mph loss (just another data point)

    I’m down 8-10. We didn’t get to it fast enough and can’t scrub it off easily, even with sharkhide. I spent 20 mins on a small section and gave up. Was getting 40mph, now max is 31-32. I need sea legs or a lift.

    Sharkhide

    Wonder if I didn’t get to it quick enough. It took forever to wipe down a small section in the water. I gave up

    Sharkhide

    We have a 2022 and it went 40 after breakin on Memorial Day… sits in lake in upstate NY. Over July 4th weekend. Can only hit 27. Toons have sharkhide. Not easy to scrub. I’ll have to figure out how to get boat out and clean with power wash. Going to be hard with bunk trailer.

    front bimini flew off

    That’s interesting… my 2022 22sx double Bimini front Bimini frame doesn’t detach. It folds to the rear and zips to the rear Bimini. The zipper is what holds it in place….

    TILT AND TRIM ADJUSTMENT

    I have a 2021 22 sx with rear livewell and mine doesn’t hit. I would assume there is an adjustment.

    PSA on center tube storage

    We are definitely looking at the sea legs! I love the idea and my initial research showed that a lift is basically the same cost… then I have to figure out how to get the lift in and out of the water every year. A lift/legs are not in the cards yet but I def will have one of them eventually.

    PSA on center tube storage

    I will have to look. I have an endoscope but don’t really want to undo those plugs… probably best for dealer to do. Thanks for the tip!!

    PSA on center tube storage

    Buying a cover isn’t really a simple fix but is a definite fix. I find them difficult to use and My in-laws, who are up way more than us can’t use them. Not the best analogy because a car isn’t meant to get wet and doesn’t have a pump but I do understand what you mean :)

    PSA on center tube storage

    I’m going to hot wire bilge to one of the batteries this week. The float switch wasn’t active due to better switch being off. We only have seat covers and will not be getting a mooring cover. I can put them on, but wife and in-laws can’t. Seat covers are VERY easy for them. I am investigating...

    PSA on center tube storage

    I only have seat covers. I am pretty sure it’s from rain. I’m pretty sure all the rain from the seats “funnels” right to the center tube door. It has also been a quite a few rain storms. I’m up here for the week and turned bilge off again to see if water accumulates while I’m here. No rain in...

    PSA on center tube storage

    Make sure bilge bypasses the battery switch!! 2022 Bennington. Turned off battery Memorial Day. Havnt been back to lake house since this weekend. Was working Friday and thought the back of the boat looked low… The rear deck was about 1” from the water. Center tube was completely full. Took...
