For the new fuel injected motor your definitely want to leave gas in it. Running them out isn’t the best thing to do for the fuel pump. The fuel systems on these engines are pretty well sealed so...

I think the start-cycle count might be related to trying to quantify cold start wear.

It looks like the Angler is just a revision to the Fury XL with the in-floor rod locker replaced by one on each side of the boat.

How does your XL do with the 25? That looks like it would be a...

I think the Angler with a 25-hp will be significantly under-powered once loaded with 2 guys and an all-day allotment of gear.

I'm of the opinion that the Fury is a better choice for a 25-hp motor....

That same concept probably also applies to your current 75-hp. I think the 90-hp Merc was the same engine, but probably was fitted with different carburetors. Dad had a ~'97 90-hp Merc on his...

It’s also possible that your motor is too low on the transom and the lower unit is creating extra drag. Might need to move it up a couple holes.

Is this a new problem or has it always been this...

That sounds great.


The actual speed isn't as critical as your being happy with the results and being able to plane acceptably.


If I had to guess, I'd bet you're in the 19-21 mph range once...

It should work fine. Just make sure the bore of the hole in the drawbar is smaller diameter than that of the inner teeth of the lock washer. The teeth need to fully engage the metal to give their...

This is a wild guess, but did anything change with the shroud over the lamps or in the wiring that would affect the grounding of the fixture? Metal shrouds over the lamps can help to strike the arc...

The standard configuration is 240V. You can buy a 120v model with 1/4 the wattage (as I recall) but I don’t think that’s a standard stocked model.

They can heat the water with either the heat...

I’m not 100% sure about this, but merc calls the system on the pro kickers a power tilt system. Not power trim. From this I infer it’s not really meant to adjust the trim position of the motor in...

That would be a lot easier to sell if it had been maxed out on horsepower. As it is, it looks underpowered to me.
