Re: 2006 Mercury 40 hp 4 stroke

My 2002 40ELPT EFI BF is a tank. Not sure if Chinese made or not. It runs like a champ though.

Re: Repower Considerations - Added HP vs Added Weight

Main thought is concerning the weight overall. Does the 1400# max rating of persons motor and gear count the hull weight too? The main mod I want to do is to.the cockpit to where it's 2 up front 3 in back seating. Right now if there's 3 people in the boat it's not the greatest seating arrangements t...

Re: Repower Considerations - Added HP vs Added Weight

One joy of just going to the 60 would be it uses the same 400+ page operators maintenance manual.

Repower Considerations - Added HP vs Added Weight

Current Rig - 2004 1860 SC Triton with a 2002 Mercury 40 EFI Big Foot 4S A repower may be in the plans for some future mods I want to do and looking into people's experiences. Weight to go from 40 to 60 hp is only about 10-20lbs additional weight. A 75 or 90 is over 100lbs. Aside from adding more we...

Re: Rookie here - Looking for advice from you tin boat exper

Also, although it won't have the "factory built in" storage the 2019 models have, a new 2019 grizzly and trailer will be over $4k. Also a new 1542 or 1436 tracker trailer 9.9ML4S and the cheapest 12V trolling motor from Bass pro and low end bilge pump will also be over $4k. Depending on the age of e...

Re: Rookie here - Looking for advice from you tin boat exper

At a minimum run the engine in a barrel or on muffs. Good measure to bring about a gallon of gas (just check to see if 2 stroke or 4 stroke). If the guy is willing to do a water test offer up $20 for gas for tow vehicle and boat gas (my opinion). To me the more the seller is willing to demonstrate a...

Re: Rookie here - Looking for advice from you tin boat exper

Back in my young and dumb days I ran a lot of small 14' boats with a 10 horse in rougher water and with more people than I should have. It all depends on how disciplined your son is and how coordinated you and your buddies are. I have a 1860 console with a 40hp and it's perfect for me the wife our 4...

Newest Tin Boater

Gabriel Paul arrived at 2037 yesterday. Our room overlooks the pond. Can't wait to get him on the boat. So far we've had our first feeding, first bath, and first exposure to Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Hank Jr. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190308/f6032afcb5e96995b3ffe75079ae5e1d.jpg ht...
