  1. Lol, Sorry for the Title. Im looking for some advice. I just replaced stock rancho shocks all the way around with bilstein 5100s. Now, When the shocks were still "breaking in" the ride was fantastic. Now, about 4,000 miles later, i'm rocking like a boat again in the front. Not nearly as bad considering how bad the OEM shocks were. Here is an example of what was on the truck when I bought it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u-To7Nn0bE Can anyone tell me what I can do to get a smoother ride? I will say its ALL highway miles-45 miles in Dallas daily (you can imagine what thats like) I was looking at hellwig sway bars but would that help? My sway bar and bushings look brand new!

  3. Has two trolling motors(minn kota 50 and 35lbs), fish finder, marine battery, and three seats. Located in Browns mills, NJ. Asking 1400. Figured I'd put it up here as well as craigslist. Gonna add a few more pictures when I get home, thought I had more on my phone.

  5. Hey Everyone - Lengthy post alert! Mods - hopefully I'm in the correct forum. I think it’s time I become a boat owner. I’ve been around boats here and there over the years and always have a great time boating. I think it’s time that I take a serious look at buying one. Having said that, I want boat ownership to be as positive as possible so I’m here to learn from you folks that have some experience under your belt. What things should I learn about or be aware of that I’m not including? Financial: Boat cost; staying under 20K (initial thought is to pay cash for appx 50% and finance the remainder; good for the credit history etc. Keep the payments down low also, since I’m in CO and my use is limited) Gas cost Insurance Parks Pass etc Storage fees Maintenance: Winterizing properly (at mechanic or DIY possible? I like to maintain my own things if possible/reasonable. If outside, shrink-wrapping seems like a must and needs to be done professionally?) Oil chg frequency? Once a season or at the beginning & end? Synthetic vs. Dyno vs. Rotella? Washing the outside after every use or once a month? Trailer; lights and bearings? Keel guards seem like a real good idea if there’s any chance of landing your boat on a beach? Ugly but functional. Fuel Injection vs. Carburetor? Should this be a deal breaker one way or another. Other than the obvious fuel economy and ease of starting what else should I be aware of? Fuel injected is preferred however in the year range I’ve been looking at (98-ish to 2005ish) I see both options. A co-worker brought up a couple thoughts that seemed wise to me. Buy a boat that’s a few years older to minimize the depreciation I’ll incur. I’m sure it’s a fine line between older boats that require work and newer boats that will lose a lot of their value. If I pull the trigger on purchasing a boat, I intend to own it for several years but don’t want to be boat broke. So far it seems like I lean towards Glastron, Larsen, Chaparral, Crownline, Caravelle, Sea Ray, Monterey and a couple others that aren’t coming to mind. There’s several Glastron in my area and the GT/GX 205s seem like a good fit for more of an entry level-ish boat. The 20 footers I can get a 5.0 or 5.7 Volvo in. I’d like to be able to wakeboard and cruise with a few folks on board so at 5K ft of altitude I think I’ll want a V8. Tougher on the gas unfortunately, but more fun to drive. (year 2002ish-2006ish) Larsen/Chaparral, Crownline, Caravelle, Sea Ray, Monterey seem a touch nicer with a few desirable features; walk thru transom, tad bit larger and I get the feeling they are well built so if I found one a touch older (say 98-02) it would compare with a newer Glastron and be similar in price. What features do people highly suggest or “not live without” once having? I like the idea of walk thru transom although that seems more geared towards 21 ft+ boat. Wrap around seating or a rear bench seat seems very nice as well along with storage areas. Length - I lean towards a 20-22ft boat since they are smaller and I’m not experienced yet. 17-18 seems too small and the larger ones (24-25) seem like a little much for a first boat. I’ll be using this on mostly reservoirs’ in Colorado such as Carter Lake, Horsetooth, and McConaughy in NE would be the largest. I know this is a lengthy post but I really want to go in as informed and educated as possible. Also, do I need to have a marine surveyor inspect the boat or is a good solid walk thru by myself and experienced boater sufficient? I think I will request a test drive since I’m so new to the sport. It seems that the general condition of the boat can be a good indicator of the overall shape. Hull shine, scraps, nicks, scrapes on the lower unit, clean engine compartment, condition of the vinyl, and hours? A couple of the Glastrons in my area are in the 15-20K range for 02-06 with as low as 50 hours and as high as 230 hours. All seem very reasonable when I do the math of how many years those hours are spread across. Well, there’s my brain dump on the subject. Jump in and let me know all your thoughts. Thanks in advance! Sam
  6. Got a 1985 Mark Twain Sonic-V 170br for sale everything works and is in very good shape, hoping to get somewhere around $4000 for it. Has a lot of upgrades including new tires on the trailer, full boat cover, and brand new stereo with speakers....Boat is powered by a 3.0L 140hp motor.
