  1. #$^% that might fit a 10”!! Eh maybe not. Is the seat all the way forward in the 4th picture?
  2. So is as IB/FA woofer what you look for if you're cutting it into an under seat storage locker, when keeping storage space is important to you? Meaning it takes up less of the storage area than a woofer that needs an enclosure built into it, and take up room in the storage space? Sorry. What I know about subs, I learned from you all in the past 2 weeks Ha.
  3. Futzin I guess I would probably want to know prices for the options to make a better decision. Honestly I am in your boat. At this time I am leaning to option 3. That said, I still can’t believe I haven’t found pictures of someone doing the same to thier 220.
  4. Is “some curve” to it all preventing? It seems to me a foam gasket of some kind could help keep things snug between the woofer and the surface and between the grill and the surface. Maybe not picturing it well in my mind when I think that. Just seems like there aren’t many flat spots on boats to begin with but subs all over the place. Great thread btw you all!!
  5. I tend to find a forum for all my toys and hobbies!!
  6. I think forward facing there would be real tough. I did take a cover off a 10” and found a mostly flat spot with some room facing starboard. But not much room. It is kind of angled vertically though. Will take a chunk out of that storage too.
  7. Congrats Brick. Just bought a 34 foot travel trailer myself three weeks ago! We will leave it in storage at our marinas lot and just pull boat back and forth. Easy to put boat in water and then go get the trailer and set it up. Did it for last few years with borrowed trailer. Was time to get one of my own.
  8. I always assumed if I didn’t go bazzoka tube in the port side locker under the dash, I would put it behind the passager seat in that storage area. Not sure if I would face it forward toward the seat or laterally toward starboard.
  9. I have a 2007 220. Love the boat. Got it at the end of the 2016 season with 80 hours on it. Ran it a lot this year. No issues at all. Hope there won’t be for awhile. Replaced cabin speakers and tower speakers is all I have done.
  10. My local marina mechanic did mine for the first time this year due to me being away so much these last months. $180 to drain, add antifreeze, fog engine, fuel stabilizer, and change lower unit gear lube.
  11. I agree with Brett a ton here. Going to different ramps requires different trailer depths and different boat speeds. It takes some experiences to know what is perefect because any change results in a change of the other factors. I would say as a new boat owner, it took us the year of using the same ramp to figure out trailer depth and boat speed to load. Of course my speed always is at an idle so my point really is the depth has to match. I find 6 inches forward or back changes it a ton. We changed boats last fall and I don't think we mastered loading this one consistently until the end of this season. Just my 2 cents.
  12. Lesson one: pics or the boat doesn't exist! Congrats and welcome!
  13. This is great to hear. You confirmed my thoughts when I look at and say, can't be too bad!! I appreciate it Wolfsong. Had my boat only a full year, so this off season is going to be several maintenance items I will do myself: the W word, change engine oil and drive lube, grease it up, change impeller, fuel filter, etc. no issues but not sure when things have been done. So get them done now so I know. And before problems arise!!
  14. Anyone seen a good video link for replacing one on a 350 Mag Merc? I watched a few but they were on pulled engines and wondered if any resources out there for engines in the boat.
  15. I have had this one for about 20 years.
