    2019 23 SSBXP weight?

    That’s my dilemma with my 24LSB…. My vehicle is rated at 5k, and I’m going to be right there. Seems like I should have some margin, but I need a heavy pickup as much as I need another streaming service subscription..

    Best inflator?

    cool idea! unfortunately I don't have access to shore power, and due to limited space, most inflating/deflating happens when running about for the day in the swimming cove, or watersports areas... need that space for seating while underway! (or need to trade in and get something closer to...

    Best inflator?

    Similar to the one I have.. it’s…. Ok…. Works better on the 3 person towable than the pool floats actually

    Best inflator?

    Lol, I just looked up the dewalt version (which comes with the adapters for inflatables), and it’s rated for 100CFM. That’s literally 100x more output than my little 12v unit. Guess this is my answer! https://www.dewalt.com/product/dce100b/20v-max-compact-jobsite-blower-tool-only

    Best inflator?

    Brilliant! I love multi function tools! As Alton would say: the only uni tasker allowed in his kitchen is the fire extinguisher!

    Best inflator?

    that's genius... i have all DeWalt tools, and there's a "shop vac" that they sell that runs on the batteries... wonder if it would work... hmmm... I'm always up for a little redneck engineering...

    Best inflator?

    The FOMO is real! I seriously want to buy a bunch of them from Amazon and test them head to head…. At least I could return them easily…

    Best inflator?

    Ok, weird question.... For our first season, we have a number of floats, a towable, and an inflatable kayak that we keep on board. I bought a cheap $20 inflator/deflator that runs off the cigarette lighter that does the job. It's really loud, and not the fastest thing in the world. Based on...

    Bennington Survey - Electric Boats

    yep, I hear ya. it's going to be a crazy time for a while i bet... my family has a "camp" (cabin in the woods for all yinz non-PA residents...lol) there's fix it... and then there's: "that's good enough for camp" fixing things... Not the type of thinking I want around high amp current...

    Bennington Survey - Electric Boats

    I don't disagree that safety and getting used to it will be an issue. I'm all about choice, to each their own. All that said though... most of the marinas on the coasts, and great lakes have 30-50 amp shore power at every slip already. or at a large percentage of them. it's safe. been...

    Sharrow props

    That said, i'm happy to offer my boat as a "test platform" for them.... :cool:

    Sharrow props

    Last I read, Sharrow was still all one off props... meaning, the prop was designed for the boat/motor combo each time and optimized. I'd like to think "general" designs aren't practical or effective enough since you could probably do well selling options for say 22-24 ft. pontoon/tritoons at...

    Pontoon Hydrofoil

    seems like no... generally, the consensus is that it will void the lifetime warranty on the toons, hence pretty risky. A number of folks seem pretty interested, myself included, but I don't operate at speed very much (mostly no wake), hence limited benefit on my local lakes. If i was running...

    Winterize Cost

    i don't have a price breakdown, I'm near Akron, OH. I'm paying ~$1800. This includes: concierge to pick up my boat from the dock, take it to the nearest ramp, and trailer it to the service center winterization includes lower unit oil change engine oil change water/fuel separater change...

    Michigan DNR Considers Inland Lake Wake Boat Restrictions.

    I’ll reiterate…. I see both sides, and hope there’s a way to compromise. My lake(s) are 90% no wake for the same reasons…. Erosion control. They are a series of lakes that are part of a reservoir. There are 2 sections designated to full speed operation, but the usage varies through the day...
