  1. Congratulations! You & your wife will have a lot of fun this summer. Enjoy.
  2. What a difference that makes. Very nice job.
  3. Just a great picture!
  4. Duh, of course.
  5. Sorry, what's a Harvey boat?
  6. I installed a Simrad GO7 last spring and love it. Great for fishing and cruising. I use Navionics charts. Very easy to read and a lot of information. I believe they have some rebates available as well.
  7. I have the exact boat. The drive is a 2.2 ratio and came with 24P props. I'm able to go higher than the recommended max of 5200 wot (not 5800, witch I"m sure is a typo). I was thinking that 26P would be the answer to reduce the rpm's but decided to have the props cupped. In theory, the extra cup acts like adding pitch and therefore should drop my rpm to an acceptable level. I just had this done over the winter so I haven't been able to try it out. I'll post back when the boat is in the water. The way this spring is shaping up, could be July before I get back to you.
  8. But it's not even covered up???
  9. Sorry about your Mom.
  10. I'd go for the '98, but not at that price. The '05 doesn't look well cared for.
  11. I work at GM dealership and have seen first hand the effects of changing your oil every 3000 miles, using the oil life monitor and not changing it at all. Changing oil every 3000 results in a cleaner engine overall with other components including cooling and air benefiting from the clean engine. Using the oil life monitor, if the factory has the algorithms correct, is ok but noticeably dirtier and a lot more build up of gunk in certain areas. Failures are usually not catastrophic but worn timing components and cylinder scoring are common. Finally, not changing the oil results in a big hole in the block around 25000 miles. I have seen too many of those and wonder how that happens when an oil change is so cheap compared to an engine.
  12. My radio turns on by itself. I think it has something to do the using the trim switch at the swim platform and my radio remotes being messed up.
  13. To say the least! No wonder it's coming apart.
  14. I'm curious what your drive is doing that requires a new clutch. I was wondering about my clutch.
  15. I use it as well. Unfortunately it's double the price up here and hurts when you guys say it's under 30 bucks!
