    Transom savers on twin yamahas

    Should not ever trailer a boat without these.. just was not sure which type would work. I looked at a picture of the boat and realized conventional ones would not work as well, then found these. $225 bucks to make sure they get there tomorrow.. but, well worth it and, worse case, I have a couple...

    Size of your hardtop

    So, curious...what is the physical size of the hard top on your boat? The average company makes t-tops like 5x7, so was curious how much larger the tops are on the Gradys...and yes, I get that a 300 Marlin may be different than a 24 offshore heh.. just sitting outside waiting for the truck top...

    All good points and I planned to get that info as soon as we get it shipped. I just am trying not to bug the guy too much since he is bending over backwards to accomodate the change in plans and repairing the trailer heh. But, it is all on my draft email of info to obtain next week:) Ty!

    Transom savers on twin yamahas

    Does anyone here have a photo of your transom savers for twin yamahas? I am pretty sure it will not matter if they are yamaha or merc, but making sure. The guy I am getting the boat from has never heard of one, so I was making sure they had the right thing before hauling it across the country...

    Ranges and fuel

    It is my understanding this has two tanks. Not planning on 2 mpg, just trying to get a feel for how far they might go. The furthest out I would even care to go would be Hospital rock at like 50 miles. Baker is at 35-40 and that range with thos is everythingI could care to fish for. Pushing...

    Okay, so I noticed the vhf was in good condition, but needed an update. To this end, found a Simrad RS35 for 171 bucks. Added a Simrad Micro-C backbone kit for 60 bucks. Plan to install the older vhf into the electronics box as a backup and tuned to channel 16. The new one will be tied into the...

    WMW ticking me off.

    Yea, already paid uship. Not a big deal, they were super to change the shipment. I was really only mad that they just asked for the whole thing up front with a check and I was like, “uh, isn’t this something you could have said up front?” I would have had the boat in Texas by now. Never...

    WMW ticking me off.

    Oh, I agree.. but, they had a different idea. Worked out for me.. irked me so much, I went and found someone else and now.. saving a ton of money I can spend on something else.. like.. gas.. lol R

    WMW ticking me off.

    I feel better now. It was a nightmare finding someone that would do a fiberglass top.. but, they seem to know how to do it AND will be adding an enclosure as well. They did not seem to understand the enclosure in the back of the cockpit.. but imo... that part probably is not needed in Texas heh...

    WMW ticking me off.

    Yea, I just got off the phone with them.. we are able to re-route. Sorry, jumped the gun on that aspect. Never used uship. Either way, looks like I can get everything they offered for 3-4k less and not have to ship to them. Just irked is all. They could have said something but, more...

    Nope, and I have a quote for a place in Texas for 3-4k less. Trying to get the shipping changed now.

    WMW ticking me off.

    Sorry.. Credit Card. Essentially, they want me to send them an 11,500 dollar check up front before they will do anything. Would have been nice if they had mentioned that before I paid the shipping. And, sorry to vent.. mad atm.. was an eye opener. I have someone south of me doing a quote for...

    WMW ticking me off.

    ok, now I am pissed I just got off the phone with WNW Marine. I am trying to order the damn top. I already paid for the shipping and they are saying that they will only take a check for the FULL amount of the top.. sight unseen.. not a CC.. What the hell kind of crap is this? This day and...

    Hello Texans

    Ya know what? made a FB page just for Gulf Coast people. I saw one.. with one member.. but was a salesperson... too many salespeople own the links to groups.. so.. figured to make one not owned by a salesman. :P https://www.facebook.com/groups/TexasGradyWhite/
