  1. Re: Lenco Trim Tabs Issue - is there a manual release ... ?

    I did not, all things point to a bad control box - Lenco will send you a new one, but you have to return the faulty one to them after install. All you need to switch it out is about 15 minutes, some...
  2. Lenco Trim Tabs Issue - is there a manual release ... ?

    For whatever reason, my trim tabs are no longer working. Originally, the starboard tab was operating ONLY intermittently while the port tab was fine. Now they're both out.I've pulled all the fuses,...

    Re: Any Owners near Houston?

    Better late than never ... I run a VHP and live in Houston. I keep the boat and launch near Bastrop Bayou. If you need to wet test, let me know. We've got big water and skinny mud options to play...

    Re: Push Pole for Vantage

    Before some miserable jackass stole mine a month ago, I had a 23' Stiffy Guide Series and liked it just fine. But - it was a blem pole so it wasn't the prettiest thing around. Light weight and strong...
  6. Re: Port St. Joe/Apalachicola - Aug. 7th - 16th ...

    Never had an issue with shallow water except for once which was my fault. Beached the boat diving for scallops and the tide went out. The push SUCKED ... !!! But we got her free and got the hell out...

    Re: Texss Meet & Greet 2015

    Probably a good time to revive this thought ... with fall upon us, I'd recon a great many of us will be down the coast a LOT on the weekends ...
  8. Port St. Joe/Apalachicola - Aug. 7th - 16th ...

    Any "family" around those parts ... ? I'm dragging my VHP from Texas to the Cape for that week to do some scalloping/fishing. Be nice to meet a few skiff owners if any were around during that time.

    Re: Texss Meet & Greet 2015

    Next time you're headed that way - hit me UP. We found em. Released 5 like this pushing 27" and limited two days in a row on trout with scattered reds and flounder.

    Ran my VHP for the first time...

    Re: Vantage Storage/Organization

    My 113 pound 13 year old can get in my front hatch (bucket removed as well) with room to spare and close the lid. Sometimes I just lock him in there when he's swimming and splashing in my fishing...

    Re: Texss Meet & Greet 2015

  13. Re: Prop selection - 115 Pro XS vs the new 115 Merc 4-stroke ...

    I'd like for some of the Florida guys to interject here, but unless I'm mistaken - there are two kinds of props: speed and shallow. One won't do both. Because of commodities pricing here as of late...
  14. Re: Prop selection - 115 Pro XS vs the new 115 Merc 4-stroke ...

    I'm planning on using my Laser II as an anchor. I dislike it that much. Not sure why y'all are seeing an additional 8 - 10 mph on the top end but the only thing that prop does well on my boat is...
  15. Re: Prop selection - 115 Pro XS vs the new 115 Merc 4-stroke ...

    Which PowerTech are you running? I'm looking at the CFF4 in a 17 for my Merc. Been hearing GOOD things about that blade. They do run THICK on the trailing edge, BUT - in sandy environments like we...
  16. Re: Prop selection - 115 Pro XS vs the new 115 Merc 4-stroke ...

    10-4 ... I got lift! Holy cow do I have lift! I need more everything ... Ha!

    Made the call to Leading Edge this morning. I'm not pursuing a local 4 blade, super skinny, super nasty ... and I'll be...

    Was your Laser II a 3 or 4 blade prop ... ?
  18. Re: Prop selection - 115 Pro XS vs the new 115 Merc 4-stroke ...

    So after getting on the water I'm getting some interesting numbers. Top end is good, bow lift is great, acceleration is GREAT, hole shot is ok to good. Not sure I'm going to call it quick and...

    Re: Vantage Engine & Tab Set Up

    I noticed during my break in period (and disclaimer: I have a jackplate BUT didn't use it during the break-in) that I got the best ride with about 2.5 seconds of down tab, and then made some light...

    Re: Mosquito Lagoon in the Summer

    Finished the break in on the motor this weekend in W. Galveston and Matty - I'm positive I could run this boat with a glass of wine on the bow and not spill a drop under the right circumstances ... !
  21. Re: Push Poles ... So is there an algorithm ... ?

    Sure, hope you're feeling better soon ... so it actually looks like it depends on the pole, for instance:

    CM G3LR - 2.6 oz./ft. (23' is $1099, plus a max of $50 depending on the foot and tip you...
  22. Re: Push Poles ... So is there an algorithm ... ?

    That helps a great deal boys ... thank you much. I must say, pretty surprised to find out that Stiffy are ~1.3 oz./foot lighter than Carbon Marine.
  23. Push Poles ... So is there an algorithm ... ?

    Minus 2 weeks and counting till delivery.

    Talk to me about push poles. Is there a certain criteria you look at to match your boats' length to your height to the structure/environment you fish ......
