  1. Some have had issues with the tower breaking or cracking. I believe also some have had issues with motor mounts. Knock on wood I haven’t. The only issue I’ve had were the ballast gates breaking/failing. I replaced them with Valterra’s and so far so good. If you search those topics there’s some good info on them. Enjoy your new boat.
  2. I contacted Indmar awhile back with a oil/oil filter question. I asked if Rotella T5 15w40 is good to use and he said yes. He also gave me a list of oil filters. Ours is a 13 so I’m pretty sure it’s the same motor.
  3. Yours looks different than our 13 racks but had the same problem. I put a washer below the spring which is below the button. I also sprayed some silicone spray and works like new. Seemed like the spring was hanging up. Not sure if that helps you.
  4. I use a Aqua Performance retractable swim step. It may be something that will work for you if you can’t find the other.
  5. Thanks for the advice meetloaf. I thought about going that route also.
  6. Thanks again AZ. I’ve seen the one with gator step and definitely makes it look better. I don’t want the bolts to show on the outside. I may countersink them and cover it with gator step or something. My wife has a cricut machine but I’m not sure how well a sticker would stay on hdpe.
  7. Thanks AZ for the input. I’m trying to make it in blend in as much as possible and I have some ideas for the outsides of the gates too. I don’t want it to look like I have 2 cutting boards bolted up. I would think the brass would hold up in the water just concerned with the strength. Guess like u said I can replace them if needed.
  8. I’m trying to finish gathering the rest of the parts I need to finish our gates. I really would like to go with black hinges since our boat is black and the gates will be also. What are your thoughts on the black ones as far as holding up? They say they are brass. Would I be better off just getting the stainless ones? If anyone has a link to the ones they use I would appreciate it. Maybe I’m just overthinking it ???
  9. Yes there are zerk fittings or maybe just 1. I had the same issue same boat. Kind of a pain in the ass to get to. Take the divider out to get access. Grease it up and I’m sure it will help.
  10. Thanks for the info jtryon. It may be a optical illusion but yours look the same height front and back. You did taper them down to 9 1/4 on the top edge to the back? I have the hdpe but trying to get a game plan before I start cutting and drilling.
  11. I’m gathering parts for slapping our f21 and looking for input on the shape of the gates. I’ve read quite a few threads about it and seen pictures but they all seem a bit different. I found this pic with dimensions and wondering your thoughts about it. I will be doing a cardboard mock up before I cut them out but looking for a starting point. Also probably a stupid question but the flat side is the bottom and tapered side will be the top in the pic?
  12. Might want to check out the 2419. Ours is a f21 but went from a 1235 to the 2419 and couldn’t be happier. We were having trouble out of the hole surfing also with the 1235. You can always call acme with your goal (ballast, passengers etc) and see what they recommend.
  13. I was told there should not be a issue with the 15” prop. Plus I don’t think acme would have recommended it if there would be a issue. I’ve read on here that others have used it without any problems also. Rain in the forecast this weekend but hopefully the following weekend I will have some feedback.
