My alumacraft 205 spt rides better than the Ranger 1880 I had. Length is king but people don't put enough emphasis on how a prop can change a boats ride. You need a prop that provides proper lift,...

You might be similar to my use. When I size a boat, the bow gunnel height is a huge factor because I pitch & flip a LOT.



Ranger 620 & 622, Vexus DVX22 & DVX19 & Lund 2075 Pro-V all have bow...

I have dexter axles on my eagle trailer. My two right hubs seem to be leaking some grease on the inside. I'd keep eye on them. Also, one of the black rubber plugs on hub cracked and allowed water...

Simrad should be equal to Lowrances SI. All the newer units seem comparable but their SI can show things differently. Lot of youtube comparisons. I do like Lowrance and simrad interface compared...

Does the motor steer stiffer more one way than the other? The steering does normally get stiffer the faster you drive, at least on my boats with hydro steering. The prop could also make a...

Only time I had lock washer break was from removing the ball to different hitch. I torque ball to 250ftlb. Never come loose. Now who greases their balls?

I'd check that also. Tube should run from motor to gauge. The line can split. I also had weird leak only in rough water. Thought I already broke hull since I broke 2 rangers in 2 years but nope,...

I agree with their assessment of fluro vs braid but it really depends upon which fluro and mono. They both come in stiff and limp varieties. It really depends on application but I do think fluro is...

What voltage did you see when motor was on? Is this a regulator issue? I'd verify correct voltage ranges throughout rpm range to make sure voltage is not spiking.

I can run a tempest plus 19p around 5950-6000 rpm at 58-59mph. I picked up 2 maybe 3mph by going lithium trolling batteries. Try a 19P enertia if you can. It seems to be a touch faster than...
