Manual Tilt Help?

try if lubrication on the transom bracket bolt will help, you might need to pull it out to spread the lube inside. and check if the nut isn't too tight, but don't make it too loose either as the motor could drop down too quick. if you don't mind me asking, what size is the motor? i imagine even bigg...

Bracket mounted auxiliary motor?

a 4hp yammy is a nice kicker because it has a built in tank. reverse jackplate is a cool idea, as long as you can provide enough setback to give your kicker room for tilting. you can also make a cut-out in your transom for the short shaft. this might be too drastic, but it's quite a common solution ...

pros and cons to carpet ?

i planned to carpet my boat, because it looks so nice and i admire it on most of the amazing builds here and the super shiny bass boats. my style of fishing involves a lot of getting on/off the boat in secluded coves, inlets and beaches, and the floor looks like a disaster after a day of fishing. ha...

Aluminum polish question (STARCRAFT SEA SCAMP 14)

wkklein, most rattle can clear coats will stick to bare aluminum as long as it is clean of any residue. i use acrylic top coat, but it will come off when you scrape the bottom of the boat. that will happen eveytime you beach the boat and possibly when you slide it on/off the trailer bunks. that's wh...

Aluminum polish question (STARCRAFT SEA SCAMP 14)

bare aluminum will tarnish, even if you do not wash it. anodizing can protect aluminum and maintain a semi-shiny metallic finish, but it's not as shiny as polished aluminum. what we do to prolong the shine on polished aluminum is to spray with clearcoat immediately after we polish. part of polishing...
