Re: New Stanley 17

Do you need to bottom paint in the Great Lakes? I have used my Pacific in a lake in Maine and did not bottom paint it just pressure washed it at the end of the season, just had a thin coat of slime that came right off. If you can avoid it I would not bottom paint it. When you attach stuff like rod h...

Re: WTB 19’ / 23’ Pacific

I recall reading something about the fill collapsing on the plastic tanks or something similar, they also tend to permeate fuel oder, I think they made the change to aluminum in '05 or so. Not surprised they will not work on older boats, plenty of good shops that can do the type of work you are look...

Re: WTB 19’ / 23’ Pacific

Yes, that is the one. I bought mine from a guy in CA and I am in MA, had it shipped, it was a 6 years or so ago, think it was around $0.75 a mile.

Re: Twin engines vs motor plus kicker

IMO I think a single is better, so much easier to and cheaper to maintain, plus unless you are going to have two separate fuel systems I do not see twins as a huge safety advantage over a single, performance wise I believe on that hull single will be better as well.

Re: pacific

Saw that one on the hull truth, looks good for the year, curious what changes Pacific made since that year, I believe this one has a plastic tank for example.

Re: how to test for Electrolysis with multimeter

I believe it is impossible to isolate the hull as the outboard is grounded and and attached to the hull, my Pacific is the same way. Just make sure you have the correct anodes installed on the engine and hull.

Re: Suzuki DF150 vs. Yamaha Y150

If Mercury is an option I would take the Mercury 150, probably the cheapest of the three, great dealer network and warranty and made in America by an American company. The motor also has a great reputation. If your only choices are Suzuki or Yamaha I would take the Yamaha over the Suzuki, better war...

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.

SINCE I m on this thread or maybe I should start a new one. I do t see hardly any plate boats on lake Erie. They are more popular on the west coast. WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS?

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.
