    Ok. So I picked up a turning point propeller and hub kit with the 13 pitch (was available at a somewhat local West Marine) and now i do 26mph and seems my reverse works better. I think my turning is better to but maybe thats just in my head. My motor still sits too low in the water and I get a...

    25hp Johnson Propeller help

    I did run my information through the Turning Point calculator and it gives me only two options: another prop like the one I have or the one I listed above. Solas seems to have more variations. What's interesting is Turning point has a YouTube video of identical boats going from a stop and...

    First Time Jon Boat Owner: *** 3M 5200 SEALANT ABUSE!!!!!!

    Have made lots of progress. Came up with a solution for the pitted metal in the back. I sandblasted the transom metal with fine ground up walnut shells from Harbor freight and cleaned up as much corrosion inside of the pits to slow/stop the erosion. This process revealed that I had many pin...

    First Time Jon Boat Owner: *** 3M 5200 SEALANT ABUSE!!!!!!

    The previous owner put a jack plate on it and if I go up a pin, it cavitates under hard throttle. I asked why he put it on and he said because it had a long shaft motor. however when I measured the motor, it is a perfect fit without it. The bottom cavitation plate above the propeller is 3 inches...

    First Time Jon Boat Owner: *** 3M 5200 SEALANT ABUSE!!!!!!

    So I am working on coating the new transom wood and noticed that there is a lot of pitting and corrosion on the inner part of the aluminum transom wall. As I clean with a wire wheel some of it is deep enough to go though the other side. I am considering soda blasting the deep pitted areas and...

    Here are the questions????????? I want to convert to side console, remote steering and throttle/shift. Buying everything new is mucho $$$. My engine is an 1987 Evinrude 20hp (tiller) and the engine does not have a tilt tube so it means that with the remote steering setup I will need to get a...

    First Time Jon Boat Owner: *** 3M 5200 SEALANT ABUSE!!!!!!

    OK. Now the project starts!!!! First removed the engine and removed the inner transom cover and the wood was just crumbling. I purchased a sheet of 3/4" MARINE plywood 4x8 and some marine epoxy to laminate two pieces for the 1.5" transom thickness.

    First Time Jon Boat Owner: *** 3M 5200 SEALANT ABUSE!!!!!!

    Hello. This is my first boat and love it so far. I have had it on the water a few times. So far with two people and some fishing equipment and the bimini top up I average 22-23mph on smooth water. With me by myself 26mph and my motor is probably maxing out rpm and needs a different prop. not...
