  1. Hi Folks, I need new tires to move my boat from one lake to another where we will have a lake house. My current tires are shot but I don't necessarily need the "best of the best" replacement tires as the boat will stay at the lake house once I move it - I just know the 4 I got probably will not last 5 miles! I have a load-rite tandem axle bunk style trailer. Your recos are welcomed! Thanks Frank
  2. Very cool, hopefully in the next 12months. Did you have a good realtor?
  3. Great idea
  4. Hey folks, we are thinking about getting a house on a nice lake here in VA (Smith Mountain Lake) and I was hoping to get any advice about “dos”and “don’t” about renting it. Any success stories to share and other stories I could maybe learn from. thanks and Happy New Year all!
  5. Hey Folks, we are thinking about getting a place at this lake and was hoping I could get some advise about any areas of the lake to stay away from, etc. It looks to be a beautiful lake but I’m sure some places are better than others. All thoughts appreciated! Thanks!
  6. Nice! Enjoy!
  7. Nice boat!
  8. Glad to,hear you are on your way. Enjoy!
  9. Good point!
  10. Merc engine Wingnut. I'll have the dealer do a scan.
  11. Hey folks, my alarm (continious) stays on about 50% of the time after starting the engine for about 20 seconds after it cranks. Oil level is good, lower drive oil good, engine temp seems fine. I noticed the engine oil pressure gauge is about 45 when the engine starts then goes to about 60-70 when underway. My hunch is the oil sensor is malfunctioning as everything seems alright. I appreciate your thoughts. 2005 216 sunesta, 5.0 tks engine, 210 hours
  12. I got a 2005 sunesta 216. Great all around boat specially when you got the right prop on it.
  13. Agree, love getting up on plane now much faster.
  14. I thought so to but I got to 5,000 with no change in operation. I ran for about 5 seconds then backed down.
  15. I have a 2005 216 Sunesta, 5.0 tks engine, 1.64 lower drive, Alpha 1. It has been somewhat under powered when I have more than 5 people on board and when tubing. I had a 19p alum prop on it last year and at wot was at 4200rpms at about 42mph. I put a 17p on this year and is like I unleashed the hounds but at WOT I'm at 5000rpms (a bit high) and max speed is about 38mph. I'm fine with not going at WOT and running about 26mph when cruising with RPMs at about 3500. Any issue with being maybe slightly over propped as long as I don't hit ~4800 rpms? Both the 19 and 17p props are 4 blade.
