Re: Automatically-operating Trim Tabs to Improve Ride into Head Seas

Jim, I have not, nor do I intend on buying these, as it appears based on some of the above comments that they are not as effective as advertised, even without first hand knowledge. That said, every boat I have owned, with the exception of my 43' Bluesea which was a full displacement hull, would ride...

Put one or two 5-gallon buckets of freshwater on the bow to shift the [static trim of] the boat forward.

Re: Automatically-operating Trim Tabs to Improve Ride into Head Seas

Understood, I'm looking for anyone that my have experience with these, to find out how it affects their ride into a headsea, and if it in turn creates an excessive wet ride as a result?

Automatically-operating Trim Tabs to Improve Ride into Head Seas

Most Outrages models tend to slam into a head sea. Will the [$140] automatically-operating trim tab product advertised in the link below smooth the ride of OUTRAGE models into head seas [by automatically] sensing [the tendency of an OUTRAGE model to slam] and push down the [bow]? http://www.westmari...

Q7: What does underpowered mean to you? Q8: What conditions do you fish and boat in?

Re: Steering Wheel Paracord Wrap

Jim, Functionally, I don't think it would make a bit of difference either way. I've thought about your comments and second guessed myself. In the big picture, I think I like it this way better as it does have a good feel with the knots on the outside, some may like it inside. If I ever decide to cha...

Re: Steering Wheel Paracord Wrap

Jim, I watched about 10 videos on it on Youtube, a simple Paracord boat steering wheel wrap search and you will find them all. This is how they all did it. Interesting question, as I took the boat out yesterday, and the only downside was that my phone charging cord got caught in it a couple of times.

Re: Folding Foot Rest for Console

Butch--the steps I bought are actually mast steps for sailboats. The can also be seen older Bertram 31 boats or similar boats where there are no ladders to the bridge. They are solidly-made and have a screw adjustment on the underside for tension on the foot rest.

Folding Foot Rest for Console

After we used our new leaning post , I found that a folding foot rest attached to the console makes the ride more comfortable while underway. The folding foot rests can flip up and away when not in use. They are stainless steel. Outrage17.jpg I put one on each side of the console. I liked the flip-u...

Re: Practical Use Aspect of Underwater Hull or Transom Lamps

Do underwater transom-mounted lamps serve a purpose other than cosmetic? [The underwater LED lamps when illuminated are] pretty. [At night the illumination from the underwater LED lamps on my boat] attracts baitfish. When hoop-netting for lobster I try to catch fresh bait to add to the hoop nets.
