    You should not be cranking these straps that tight. Just take the slack out and no more.

    My cousin's boat slid off the trailer when he had to slam on the brakes. The front stop of the trailer...

    I might still have my old solenoids with factory connectors on them. But if I do, they are packed away and won't come out until April at the earliest.

    I wouldn't want to leave two batteries connected in parallel while not in use. You could be experiencing a self-discharge as a result (one battery draining/charging into the other). If you have a...

    I prefer to adapt the garden hose to 1-1/4" hose and attach to the V-drive inlet. There are several examples of those adapters on the forums, you'll just have to search, maybe "winterization" would...

    You're talking about a short term issue. If it were me, I wouldn't have a problem using it just to launch it a few times. I wouldn't really consider it "towing" in that sense.

    The Rangers here will write tickets if you are over passenger capacity but they don't really have any way to verify ballast weight. I could imagine that they might call it unsafe and issue a ticket...

    All batteries are basically made by 2 or 3 manufacturers and then the terminals, packaging and label are put on for each brand. The point is that a name brand and generic are nearly identical...

    This probably wouldn't be practical. Each pump will pull about 12-15 amps while running. If you went to 6, you'd need about 75A: alternator, batteries, etc... You could add some aerator style pumps...

    Agreed but I'd recommend getting the old fuel out assuming that it's regular gas station fuel with ethanol which gets pretty icky when it sits for long. At best, it will give you starting headaches,...

    The platform itself might only be rated to 300# (wood, fiberglass, etc) but the bracket connection to the transom is pretty stout, I'd even say that it is better than the lifting eyelets. Remember...

    The cap and rotor is exactly where the spark happens every time a cylinder fires. Isn't the cap modified to be sealed?

    NO, NO, NO.

    It could "work" just fine, but these are exactly the kind of parts that must be marine rated (explosion proof). If anything ever happened that you had a bit of fuel vapor in the bilge,...

    Not quite. Colorado law requires you to pay tax on all out-of-state purchases. Your point is that in CO, the DMV is only authorized to collect tax on the trailer since boats are not vehicles here....

    One option for the platform, if you are getting a boat cover, is to get one that cover both the boat and the platform. We did this and like it.

    All of these symptoms are due to the controller settings, not the paddlewheel vs. GPS.

    I suspect that this is due to the throttle response settings in the controller, not the difference of paddlewheel vs. GPS. In fact, the paddlewheel will provide a better "instantaneous" measure of...
