    Repower 265 Express

    no, it'll probably sit right where you want it. See how it works. Remember, there is an adjustment to stop the tilt before it hits something. My problem was that the cylinder hit the top of the transom before the LU got out of the water HC5345 is designed to flip over the top and the...

    Yamaha 150 wont pee

    Based on what you said, there is no problem with the pump nor the telltale. It works when running the motor down in the water. You don't have enough pressure when flushing on the hose to reach the top of the engine. Could be Poppet valve stuck open. When problem flushing on hose, is motor...

    Fell MOB+ vs ACR OLAS Guardian

    Thats my reasonong for leaning towards ACR OLAS. The bulk of equipment is separate from the small button/indicator The Fell has to be mounted on the dash but also where the unit and antenna fit. I'll make a decision closer to April so I'm not another guy with one waiting to be installed...seems...

    Throttling up to Turn in Place

    In the video, he is not twisting the boat. he is turning the boat. He has the wheel turned a bit in the direction he wants to turn (port) and using the fwd gear to turn, against a reverse motor that is pointed the wrong direction. its trying to pull the bow to starboard not port. The boat does...

    Throttling up to Turn in Place

    I think if you are going to try to have one raised and the other not, you are setting yourself up for trouble. I find it way better both fully down. Straight. Both props are below the boat. All thrust is working in the direction you want. your fwd prop isn't throwing water up. Bracket boats...

    265 rear bench seat options/ideas

    The pinned hinges are a great idea. Thats pretty sweet. What did you do to lock the tailgate in place? I see a chip in the tailgate along the hinge. I repaired a bunch of those with epoxy and painted the tailgate. My brother and main fishing buddy just moved out of state. I might be...

    Galvanic Isolator replacement

    This may be a spring project. The original (under the gunnel) may or may not work but it is not the "FailSafe" type they make now. It is also in the way of me installing another swivel rodholder. I never use shore power except sometimes I'll plug in the charger if I haven't been able to run the...

    Insulation

    My mind has wondered/wandered in the same direction regarding my livewell and fishbox but it hasn't gone past the "hmmm?" stage. There is a chance that the lid is cored with high density foam and not plywood. So it might be as good as the other sides. The hardware is thru bolted so you could...

    Suzuki DF200AP maintenance tips

    OH! Another thing that pops up .... The Engine Oil Change procedure begins on page 85 of the manual. Nowhere in that procedure is a step to reset the oil change reminder alarm. Oil Change Reminder System is on Page 49. It tells you how to silence the alarm and reactivate the system to the next...

    Networking Garmin gpsmap units

    The b164 is a traditional CW (non-CHIRP) 50/200kHz 1 kw. That is really good for deep water and reading bottom well while running. To complement that you could get a GT52 or GT56UHD transom mount to give you CHIRP clear vu and side vu. They are HighWide at 455/800/1000 khz and will give you...
