    One thing to keep in mind if you are running dual batteries is that a good battery can hide a bad one. I thought both of my batteries were OK, but when I isolated one (for longer than a day or two of...

    Contact cement is a type of pressure sensitive adhesive but it requires less pressure than regular PSAs to activate. PSAs are used to apply thin veneers but you can't use a J-roller with PSA like you...

    We pulled the carpet out of the rear lockers and have been asking this same question. The only thing I can even think of is that the skanky mat was there for some abrasion resistance but that's a...

    At work, we have the nice tools like those. At home, I go a bit cheaper on tools that are used less frequently. For wire stripping, I use the similar Irwin It's not as nice as the Ideal tool you are...

    I upgraded that hose to 1" and like you was hoping to do it without pulling the floor up but it was just a bit too tight and there were a few more zip ties under the floor. Pulling the floor up is...

    Yes, you would use the pylon for skiing/tubing/etc. The bad thing is that you can't have people sitting in the rear seat while towing from the pylon due to the decapitation. I would recommend that...

    Yes, you can walk on the bow. It is plenty strong. It is built with fiberglass the same way as the rest of the hull. As mentioned, it can be slippery and unfortunately it's not quite as big an area...

    Congrats. Our story is similar. We bought our '07 LSV last year because of our 1 year old and the need for a little more room. It's working great for us. I think you'll love it.

    I wouldn't want the hot foot. That would be an impossible way to get precise speed control. Maybe he was barefooting and the throttle was all or nothing.

    $5k would be a steal if there aren't any...

    Very cool. He is selling the IP of the design, so there isn't a product yet but I'd really like to see boat control systems head in this direction so I hope it catches on.

    I'm scared that the...

    Yeah, this is why I prefer the AGM's. I've grown very tired of car batteries that start to die in the 3 year range. It's just a fact of life. Once I switched to AGM, I started getting batteries that...

    This is the key to your decision. In this case, a deep-cycle battery is not beneficial. Deep-cycles are good for situations when you use a battery for a long time without charging it. Batteries can...

    16ga is 0.013 ohm/m. So the same calculation would result in a 0.2V drop.

    What gauge wire is used for those lines? If it's 20AWG for example, you have about 0.033 ohm/m. Let's guess 3m of wire, so 0.1 ohm. I don't know how much current those draw at 14V but it's fused for...

    We're in the ballpark of 300 hours on the '07, which I consider low. I think of 100 hours per season as an approximate threshold for "a good summer". I sold my '89 DD with 1200 hours and it ran great...

    I use Collinite and I've been very happy with the results. I would definitely recommend it but I haven't used enough other products to offer fair comparisons.

    Is the hex head stripping out, or are the bolt threads stripping? If it's the head, I would try to various amounts of tightening on the other screw such that it takes a bit of the pressure off of the...

    I have no idea how much rain it would take to fill the bilge/hull area but maybe 5" plus the 5" above the carpet would be 10 inches of rain... is that in line with your 3 day rainfall?

    I burn a very little bit of oil just due to the heavy load but it's the same wakeboarding vs. surfing. I'm not too concerned with the effect of the lean angle on the motors. It's extreme for boating...

    They should fit perfect. It has the same overall dimensions (50x24x24) as the 1100#. The volume difference is just due to the circular cross-section.
