    Adding charging system to 1986 Merc 9.9 2-stroke?

    They are pretty pricey though. For the cheap price I found mine it can't be beat.

    Adding charging system to 1986 Merc 9.9 2-stroke?

    Unless you are constantly using the engine and charger it won't really help the battery that much I would think. Solar is also somewhat the same as it won't get you much charge unless it sits for hours during the day and you have enough panels. You really need a generator like a small Honda 2k...

    Boat ramp traffic way down and fewer boats on the water?

    Sorry to hear you issues with the vests. Neither of us in in your weight class, so I would imagine we will have better luck. I have tested mine and no issues. I don't jump in the water with it inflated though. More interested in it inflating when I accidentally fall in. Inflating it first will...

    Boat ramp traffic way down and fewer boats on the water?

    We bought two of these. Will float you unconscious face up. Auto inflate, manual inflate or mouth inflate if needed. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0B8TDPTCR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

    Towing with Smaller SUV

    Try a Jetta with the tdi diesel engine! Tows well. Just watch the tongue weight as it will take some weight off the front wheels.

    Boat ramp traffic way down and fewer boats on the water?

    I am partnering with a slightly older gentleman than myself who is in the same boat. Has some issues as do I and we will try and keep an eye on each other. One requirement is auto inflating life preservers for both of us. I used to have to find people with a boat to go with and had trouble. Now...

    World conditions and money supply currently also affect peoples "willingness" to buy extra things.

    Boat ramp traffic way down and fewer boats on the water?

    We have had rains but they have to fall in the watershed. Getting rain right now but we would need at least weeks of worth of steady rain in the watershed to do any improvement to the lake.

    The lake is only 37% full.

    Boat ramp traffic way down and fewer boats on the water?

    Down here in Central Texas where I am. It's due to lack of water. Lake Travis, one of the closest largest lakes near me is over half empty. It seems. All the boat ramps are out of the water.

    I have a 1974 16' Mirrocraft that may be similar to yours. Best I can do right now is this one. Can get a better closeup view later if needed.

    Eclipse 20240408

    I can't take credit for the photos as they were from people that were with me on the center line. The ones posted here were mostly from a co-worker. I tried with my cell phone and other cameras but mine were bad compared to theirs. Glad you enjoyed them!

    How many of you enjoy a decent stereo in a boat?

    My boat is just a small aluminum fishing boat. No parties or towing and such going on. Generally I have a hard time finding anyone to go with me anyway. If I do want some music it will be BT headphones from my phone. I don't mind others having music or whatever as long as it isn't blasting...

    How many of you enjoy a decent stereo in a boat?

    I have one of these for use when needed, but not on the boat. Got it new long ago for $70 on Amazon. Works excellent for a decade old product. https://www.amazon.com/Sony-SRSX55-BLK-Powerful-Bluetooth/dp/B00TTWZHBW?th=1

    How many of you enjoy a decent stereo in a boat?

    My boat is only for fishing and will never pull anything. Rarely will see more than 2 people at a time.
