SliderG5 - Sliding Bench Boat Seat Mount

Friction stops it from moving side to side. It won't slide while you're seated and it takes a little push to slide it when you're not seated. Mine doesn't even slide when trailering down the highway yet is still easy to slide side-to-side when you want to move it or take the seat out. Really like my...

The ultimate bowfishing boat?

That's pretty nice. Almost identical to the one I used to fish with but mine didn't have a tunnel. Once you fish from an airboat, outboard powered bowfishing rigs become novelties. Airboat is the only way to go if you're real serious. Not really because there are a lot of places airboats won't go b...

Ladders... I'm using ladders.

You will need vertical supports. Even though I'm not crazy about the ladder idea, I don't think vertical supports will be needed. It looks like the span is under 4 feet. With 4 aluminum channels the depth of a ladder rail, I think it can span that distance. Especially with the ladder rungs attached...

Turkey calling tips

I always recommend starting with a friction call. These are the easiest to learn. Learning to use a diaphragm on your own without a tutor can be frustrating. One tip for learning to use a diaphragm is to use your smartphone to record yourself and play it back to get a better understanding of what yo...

Sketchy Shallow Run

Sounds like you're going to upgrade. What boats are you looking at? Just a side note. I bought a 20 lb drift boat galvanized pyramid anchor and am really pleased with it. If you anchor in swift water a lot, you might give one a try. I'm likely going to an inboard RockProof with UHMW. To slow my dri...

Battery charger help needed.

I thought you could still find the old school analog chargers like you're talking about at auto parts stores? I bought one maybe 2 or 3 years ago.

Longtail run up the river like a Jet?

Not quite jet like, but still get you to a lot places a normal prop won't go. Pretty cool.

Sketchy Shallow Run

Shallow, rocky, sketchy run to fish a stretch of river I've been wanting to hit for a couple of years. This run is pretty much the limit for my G3 and likely the last run I'll make on it. She's been a good boat, but I've reached the limits of its capability and there are waters worse than this that ...

Tm lay down?

I stow with the prop to the side that I'm least likely to walk on. But, most people mount so that the motor is angle to the port side when stowed...I never thought that made any sense and mount mine so that it is angled to the starboard when stowed.

Merc 80 Jet Enough for my 1860??

80 at the pump or 80 at the engine? 65 at the pump is the absolute lowest I would go for a 1860 coming in around 700-900lb dry weight.

12 volt vs 24 volt

I us a 24V #80 with an aftermarket Kippawa prop. The prop makes all the difference in the world. I need to give one of these a try. Have read a lot of good things about them. More overall power with a Kippawa? Night and day over a two-blade prop, the Kippawa prop moves a lot more water. When you sm...
