  2. I bought the surf pipe from the guy who had the boat before me, never put it on. Im tradin my boat in, so if someone wants it for 150. Its all yours. We can square up on shipping after. Nick M had someone here make the pipe, he didnt remember what he paid so i paid him 150. I dont know if it fits any other boats if someone wants to chime in, or whoever made it knows. I dont want it to just sit in my shed if someone wants it, whoever made it did an excellent job and it should be put on a boat. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. I do get alot of bugs furthest ive drug the boat was 6 hrs, but im draggin it from east Texas to NE Louisiana so theres no gettin away from the bugs. I always wipe the boat down. You think plastic wrap will hold up? Do you have mud flaps on your truck? Will help you from dinging your boat up with rocks. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

  6. Someone told me the other day that ram went to allison transmissions. I dont see how u can beat a cummmins and an allison transmission paired up. That bein said the new f250s are sexy, i love the looks. I did drive a 2020 f250 the other day and i loved the way it drove, almost didnt feel like a 3/4 ton at all. My neighbor just bought a chevy badlander i think he paid around 74k. Thats a bad dude. He had bought a 2020 2500 gas burner and the transmission went out on it twice within 6 months. He drove the loaner vehicle more than he did the truck he bought. He complained enough and they gave him what he paid for it and 10k towards that badlander. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Yessir mines a bit of a pain to get in there, but its no big deal. Keeps it outta the way. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. Its for the plexiglass screen u put up front to block the wind under the center winshield. Dont know the proper nomenclature for it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. Ok hear me out this is weird i know. I want to mount a garmin fishfinder/gps to my tomcat. The main reason is because they have the quick draw contour map that map out depths as you go. I do want the clearvu down imaging just because i could possibly pick up stumps if im creepin through before i hit them. The clearvu isnt absolutely necessary but kinda cool. Im not trying to spend a ton of money on this because im not going fishing, but my home lake is constantly changing everytime we get a good rain. The sand bars are moving constantly along with the stumps from hurricanes and storms. They also have the water 3ish ft low to work on the dam which is supposedly going to be done in 2-3yrs. If the level was up i probly wouldnt be thinking about doing this so much. All the garmins in the lower price range with these features come with transom mounts or trolling motor mounts. My initial idea was to use the trolling motor mount on the strut, but looking closer at it i dont want anything that close to my prop, just seems like a bad idea. The thru hull transducer that i would use that has the clearvu is about 500 bucks which im not spending that much. One option is taking the bracket off the transom transducer and mounting it to the bottom of my center plate. I dont think it would screw my wave up very much, if at all because its pretty flat, and would be in the center. Couldnt be worse than a surf pipe. Now if i go with the traditional chirp, I could do a in-hull, and its only 120 bucks. That is def. The easiest route. The traditional chirp still has the quick draw map. Attached screen shots of the transom mount and in-hull. What u guys think im open to ideas. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. Left my main girl in stg and took the side piece out today. I love this boat because i dont clean it...ever. 77 degrees. Not a shabby day. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. Wonder why it never caught on? I mean a couple hours of battery isnt gonna work for most people, but still the tech is there. I bet if Elon made one people would buy em like hot cakes. But the nautiques price tag def. Puts it out of reach for most people. If the price tag is really around 240k anyway. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. I found a different video and the guy said roughly 240k. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. Have you guys seen this? Pretty cool stuff, my friend has been sayin they needed to make an electric boat for years, and they finally stole his idea lol. Wonder what the price tag on that is gonna be? If you lived on the lake and only surfed, it would take a huge bite out of the fuel bill. If they could add more batteries as the part of the ballast and get lets say 6-8 hrs out of a charge that would be pretty sweet. https://www.nautique.com/models/super-air-nautique-gs22/electric Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
