Shrink wrap concerns

I may have to store my Pacific outside this winter, thinking of shrink wrapping it down to the chine or just to the rub rail, I am concerned the shrink wrap could trap water and discolor the aluminum on the sides of the hull. Has anyone had this happen or is it something I should not be concerned ab...

Re: New guy here.

Great choice for the motor, I have been researching that motor as I want to repower my 19' Pacific from a 90hp Honda which is carbureted to the ProXS115, with my Honda I can run 36mph, I think I would see low 40s with the 115. My boat is also rated for max 150hp but I was thinking the same about bei...

Re: Little beater?

Cool video, those boats are definitely tough, good video for when people talk about how tough some NON ALLOY boat is. Those mud motors are really cool, always blown away at how fast they can move a boat like that is only a few inches of water.

Re: So ... anywho how does Pacific skiff compare to other aluminum boat builders?

Lund AND OTHER RIVETED BOATS ARE FAIRLY COMMON. But mostly glass. My wife wants to know why I have to go out to Washingto...

Re: non-skid

I would try a side grinder with 80 grit, Pacific uses Farwest paint http://www.farwestpaint.com on their decks, I spoke to Farwest a while back they will sell you the paint direct and can mix it to any Sherwin Williams color, you can go right over the existing paint just get rid of any loose paint. ...

Re: Electrolysis

How does the 115 perform on the 2025? I have a Honda 90 on my 1925, no t-top and I top out at 36mph. I have been thinking of upgrading to a new 115 or 150 Mercury Pro XS.

Looks mint, has it been used regularly or in storage, is the fuel tank aluminum or plastic.

Re: Electrical precautions when welding on hull

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for all the info, my plan was the buy some .250 5086 and bend the brackets I need then have them welded to the hull, I am thinking about a couple for trim tabs and one for a Power Pole.

Re: Electrical precautions when welding on hull

Thanks for the info, I will probably just disconnect the batteries and have it welded and hope for the best. On the welding topic, what type of wire should be used for welding on the Pacific 5086 hull? Thanks again.

Electrical precautions when welding on hull

I am thinking of having some brackets welded to the stern on my Pacific 1925 for trim tabs and a Power Pole, should I do anything to protect the electronics on the boat? Thanks.
