    Talon installation

    I installed my 12’ Talon using the MinnKota sandwich bracket between the motor and the transom. I wasn’t sure of the angles to use for the adjustable sections but basically I got it mounted squarely with the back of the deck. obviously, I did something wrong because as soon as I get up to about...

    2017 22 SL Navigation Light (bulb?)

    After all the hoops I had to jump through to get in so I could change the bulb, I believe I’ll do the same next time.

    Navigation Lights

    Thanks for the advice. If I can ever get the light loose, I'll check it.

    Navigation Lights

    We just realized that the port light comes on and is at full brightness. The starboard light is on but very dim. Since they’re on the same circuit, any ideas why this might be happening?

    Looking for a Bennington outfitted for fishing

    Thanks everyone. We got a 22 SFX, with two elliptical pontoons. Even with the Yamaha 115, it cruises nicely at 25-27 and handles chop very nicely. I just got my MinnKota Terrova installed today and did the Lowrance HDS12 yesterday. I'll take pictures this weekend, after I've got everything...

    Installing Trolling motor

    I'm transferring my MinnKota Terrova to my 22SFX. It's 24 volt, 80# thrust. My question is about wiring. My deep cycle batteries are mid-ships, straight across from the helm. It looks like it will take 18-20 feet of wire to get from the batteries up to the right front corner hatch, where I'll...

    Seat post removal

    Thanks. Actually, my oil filter wrench wouldn't go down that small, but I got them off finally.

    Seat post removal

    Just got our 22SFX and are very happy with it. One problem though, is the seat posts. I’m afraid they’ve never been removed since 2014. I’ve tried PB blaster between the post and the nylon insert, but they won’t budge. Any ideas on how to get them loose?

    Picked my new boat

    I live in Port Charlotte, which is on a beautiful big harbor that feeds into the Gulf.

    Picked my new boat

    Not true. We put it in the water, so we could start the motor and check the pumps and sonar. We just couldn’t leave the marina since the seller wasn’t there.

    Picked my new boat

    Thanks everyone. Pictures to come soon. The great thing about living in SW Florida is that we get to enjoy boating and fishing all year long.

    Picked my new boat

    We found a 2014 22 SFX with elliptical package. Should be able to drive it home by early next week. Probably an hour trip from the marina to my dock. Thanks to all who helped me understand some things. Now the rigging begins!

    Shallow water anchors

    I love my 12' Talon. Most of Charlotte Harbor is shallower than that, so it works most places. I'm going to move it from my PathFinder. My lift cover is high enough that I wont need the folding bracket. I'd love to see a picture of where he mounted it on his boat. Thanks
