Yamaha F25 1st oil change

Should have changed the filter. The break in is for meeting parts to wear together. The F25 is a great motor...about bullet proof.

Maybe bowfishing

There are many bowfishing package bows available now ranging in price from $200-$600. Typically people go with either an AMS Retriever bottle reel or a traditional spinning reel setup. Both have advantages and disadvantages...so it's personal preference. I hate spinning and love the bottle...and the...

Float pod flooded with water

I wouldn't add more foam and hopefully the foam that is in there isn't already water logged. The risk to adding more foam is that it becomes water logged. As long as the foam isn't waterlogged you're good to go. The foam that's already inside may be there to add some structural support. Only remove ...

Tail walking tinny. Yikes.

Smack your head on the gunnel and hopefully you have a loved one willing to change your adult diapers for the rest of your life.

Lowe Pathfinder or G3 CCJ

Boats are very similar. I have a G3 1656 CCJ 60/40 (It's a 2013). Great boat, needs a little more horse power but does ok. I think your deciding factor is going to be the layout of the boat. I think the fuel capacity in the G3 is less than the Lowe boats as well. I can tell you that the G3 will take...

How to attach

I would add a plate using mechanical faster, rivets or weld and weld grab bar to the plate.

Tracker Grizzly complete rebuild

Wow! A lot of work went into that. One tip on the Hydro-turf is that if you are crafty you can use a router table to route the edges. I've only seen it in photos....but it can be done. Might not be worth the effort, but it does give a really clean look for an up-charge.

Invasive species

The blue catfish is our invasive species here Virginia. I hate them with a passion. Freshwater rats is what they are. The biologists in Blacksburg (Joe Williams-muskie and John Copeland-smallmouth) both say the flatheads are the real reason the smallie population is declining. I suppose flatties ar...

thinking about buying a kayak

I have a Nucanoe Frontier 12. I bought it 3 years ago and over that time it evolved into my primary fishing boat. I love it.

I’m done with this cold weather

. . . 2 days of cold not big deal. Where the heck does the Commonwealth of Virginia only get two days of cold? I awoke to 20, but I suppose that doesn't qualify as winter....huh? 180 days of rain is killing us. I'm human, I adapt. Low of 20 and high of 50 in a day doesn't count as cold for me. When...

The picture I posted is about 4 miles from the NC line. I'd say that qualifies as southern VA. :lol:

Cold isn't the problem here in southern VA, it's rain. It literally rained for 50% of the of the last 365 days. It has been unreal and depressing.

Unknown 1449 Total makeover

You need a drain plug if you're going to trailer it unless you plan on running your bilge pump traveling down the highway in a rainstorm....if the battery is dead or bilge pump has problems maybe your wife can ride in the boat down the highway with a bucket. :shock: If your boat fills with water on ...
