    Used boats purchase

    I am not aware of any particular issues with either of those crafts. Before buying a test ride on the water is a must in my book.

    Stern Anchor?

    In your situation I do think a mushroom would work okay or a smaller fluke. A little movement of the boat would be acceptable and the mushroom would keep it in place for the most part. Myself, if a cove gets that crowded I'd hunt for another cove if possible. LOL I know, you probably...

    Did you know ....

    When sperm whales need a nap, they take a deep breath, dive down about 45 feet and arrange themselves into perfectly-level, vertical patterns. They sleep sound and still for up to two hours at a time between breaths, in pods of 5 or 6 whales, presumably for protection. No one knew whales slept...

    Very nice. Sounds like a great deal. Boats prices have gone up so much. a 23 ft new for less than 100k seems like a deal. Enjoy.

    Layers in my hull, boat made in 2013. What if there is a leak?

    I am no expert. I was looking at a boat model that was known to have rotting stringers. No easy way to eyeball them to see. A moisture meter was recomended to see if the stringers had moisture. This would give me a clue if they were in the process of rotting out. I suspect a moisture...

    I apologize. I got your boat size mixed. up. With a 20' you might be at a 19 or 20 pitch. Years ago I had a 20ft boat and I ran a 17p. It was a 6 cyl. 4.3 L. Good luck

    Aluminum gives / bends a bit on take off. Stainless would help your hole shot. Pitch is always stamped on the prop. A number like 26 with a circle around it, at least that's what I've seen on mine. Sometimes it will be 26p. I suspect that is the pitch of your current prop for your...

    Alternator not charging on a 2006 265ssi

    I think the voltage gauge only is reading for whichever battery you have picked to start the engine. Try switching to another battery and see if the voltage gauge reads different. Otherwise, for me, 3 batteries can get confusing. I had three when I bought my 288 Sunsation with a 496 mag...
