  2. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    Here is another video that I ran across from someone with the same boat and motor as mine (even though he has a 20HP cover on his motor), having the same issue.

  3. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    Yea, I seen the Mini's and didn't like them at all...... I would like the ability to have some type of adjustment to it in case #1, I screw up the location mounting. Im a measure once cut twice...

  5. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    Your guesstimate is exactly correct. It's a flat bottom fishing boat thats never going to break any speed records, I'd love for it to be correct, but if it isn't it isn't.... The PO was the only...
  6. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    I like and trust Amsoil. Thats all I ever run in my Goldwings (for oil). It has made a huge difference in how smooth the engine runs and the transmission shifts. Will never use anything else in my...
  7. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    When we took it out last, we had 3 in the boat, usual boat gear, nothing else to speak of. We ran for almost 2 hours and my tank gauge went from full to one line below full, so between 3/4 tank and...
  8. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    I went out and looked at what it would take if I were to raise the motor up. I noticed that the motor mount had 2 bolt holes and the bolt was in the top hole. I was able to raise the motor up about...

    Re: Smoking fish on electric smoker

    I know this is an older post, but I'll add my $0.02 for future reference. I like good ol' fashioned smoked meals. What does that mean?..... Stoke up the fire box with some good red oak, get the...

    Bunk height?

    Where I put my boat in, the water level isn't that deep and I have a hard time getting the boat (15' Aluminum flat bottom Grumman) off and on the trailer. I noticed the bunks are attached with...
  12. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    I agree the cavitation plate is well below the bottom of the water level to bottom of the transom. I did some looking into what I can do about it, if thats the cause of the spray, and decided to...
  13. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    The trim seems perfect now, the prop is under water (I should have shot a video off the back to see where it rode in the water)

    The spray seems equal on both sides of the motor. I was looking at...
  14. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    Here are a couple more pictures of the motor position with the bottom of the boat:

    from under the boat (yes, the ground was wet and cold, your welcome)

    I hope that tells you...
  15. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    I just went out and looked at it and you are correct!! The transducer was backwards, with the "V" facing backwards, I said Good Eye in my last post, now I will say very good eye!! and thanks for...
  16. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    The picture was taken when I was adjusting the side rails on the trailer, but in order to put them back on correctly, was to move the boat over about 4 inches. The transducer would have hit the one...
  17. Re: 1973 Johnson 65hp power shift II - 65ES73R Issue finding waterpump gasket

    I had issues with the supplied gasket that came with the kits. I went to the auto parts store and got a piece of cork/rubber gasket material and some liquid, brush on gasket cement and make my own...
  18. Re: Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    I think your right. I left it in the position the previous owner had it in thinking that is where it should be, but based on everything else I have fixed/replaced on this Boat/Motor/Trailer, I...

  20. Was a nice day so we took the boat out for the first time

    Im attaching a short video of the water splash that I get from around the leg of the motor at water level. The splash is so high, as you can see on the video, it hits the side cover of the engine. ...
