Re: Anybody have the newer 90hp Yamaha on their boat?

The Susuki DF90A fits under the X seat.

Maybe find specs on that motor to compare.

Re: Shore power cord

Vote for 50' Highly recommend buying two adaptors, 50-30a and 30-15a We bought this 50a to 30a adapter when it was $40 https://amzn.to/2ZQ0ugM Other options https://amzn.to/37H3Sxk https://amzn.to/2ZQ0Tji The 30-15a allows you to connect to a generator or house. https://amzn.to/2Fji4QV Victor

Cape Charles Sail 6/21-23/2019

Compromise and Storm Walker are putting in at Cape Charles this Friday. We'll be staying at either the Town Harbor (waiting for a call back) or Kings Creek. No particular sail plan. Would like to revisit the concrete ships to the South, depending on the winds. Not sure if there are MacGregors in the...

Re: New Custom 26X Trailer

Dan finally got his 26M Triangle trailer done. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=27070

Reports better towing and NO sway.

That means they can make trailers for both models now.

Re: Replacement Motor

They talk about the 70HP which is the same weight as the 90 and 115 merc. It's not just weight that needs to be considered but the force (in-line and offset) a more powerful engine will exert on the sern. If you're underway and that stress causes hairline cracks near the waterline... you've got tro...

Re: High Pressure Fuel Pump Failed on 2010 Suzuki DF90A

The Suzuki is ridiculously easy to fix.

Crazy what they charge for their time.

Wish car and planes were the same.

High Pressure Fuel Pump Failed on 2010 Suzuki DF90A

High pressure fuel pump failed on 2010 Suzuki DF90A while pulling away from dock. Easy diagnosis after the fact. Crack the high pressure banjo fitting on top of the fuel rail and turn on the key. No spray check the voltage which is only on for 3 sec key on (cost me several hours of research). Watch ...

Billy Box

We've had this unit for at least 6 years. Works AWESOME! Had to turn down the AC last weekend, too cold with a 5000 BTU unit. Paid $60 on sale for the AC. Picture with rear glass installed. Really adds to the experience looking outside and watching everyone else sweat :D The Billy Box also makes a g...

Re: New Custom 26X Trailer

First trip on the new trailer last weekend.

Wow! No problems towing, launching in shallow water or single hand retrieving (first time auto center).

No sway, no tire rubbing just no problems anymore.

Fully loaded the boat and towed with confidence. Disk brakes worked great!

Thanks Triad!

Re: New Custom 26X Trailer

The bow roller does reduce how far you need to dip the tailer since the bow can roll up instead of digging in like K9Kampers wrote. I noticed key features missing on the pdf: side rails extended up to the hitch for better stregnth, cross bracing, lengthened trailer for better support, axle moved bac...

Re: New Custom 26X Trailer

Just heard from Triad today. "Finally! I’ve finished up the pricing file which is attached. The same trailer as yours is going to start at $3,990.00. There have been a ton of steel increases over the past couple of months which really raised the pricing. Everything on the trailer is pretty much stee...
