Riding in Citrus Co

I was just up in the area for the first time this past weekend. I did not have my boat, but have heard for years about the riding up there. After seeing it, I'd love to go up there and ride sometime. Where would be a good place to put in and get started. Also a suggestion on where to stay. Thanks in...

Re: Best prop for heavy boat 540 lycoming

I don't think you would want the h for a heavy boat. I would suggest an NGQ or something wider than an h in a 3 blade configuration.

Severval things could help.....
More forward weight
Different motor angle

Re: Arbuckle Creek

I live near there and love the Arbuckle. It is definetly one of the prettiest places you'll ever ride. You need to go before the water gets too high. It is pretty "hairy" at times when she gets to flowing hard. The RR is plenty high to get under.

Re: Heat Extractor

I have one on my SV 540. I don't have a cyl head temp gauge, so I really don't know how much it's doing, but I do run a lot of dry and it makes me feel a little better about it.

Orange Lake

My son has a youth bass tournament on Orange lake this weekend. I've never even seen this lake, so was wondering if any of you guys had any info….areas to stay away from, or areas that might hold some fish. Thanks in advance for any help.
BTW....feel free to private message me.

Re: Lucas oil additive raising oil temp?

For what it's worth, I've been running Lucas in my 540 for the last 4 or 5 oil changes and have not noticed one bit of temp increase. I run it at the recommended rate also, which I believe is 1:4 ratio.

Re: slick bottom vs polly

I would suggest you start out with slick. See how long it lasts you and how you like it. When you wear it off, decide then if you want to stay with it or go poly. If you ever wanted to try it, now would be the perfect time.

Re: Polymer Price's

Believe this material is close to optimal overall. If you go with this, do not say the words "Air Boat" when talking with them. http://www.superslide.com/products/hoppers-bins/yellow-quartz I know it's not local to the area you asked about, but since you are looking for 3/8 this material ...
