    Those are the traditional rockers that you want.

    I prefer my co-pilot facing forward as a second set of eyes for debris in the water, channel markers or just ‘hey, did you see that?’.

    My ‘05 doesn’t have buttons on the steering wheel. What are those for?

    Didn’t look to close but I assume the radio. I was More interested in the hull, cushions etc.

    The 2007 has some very nice captains seats. They are one year only. (Sorry, I’m a little partial)

    I think I am going to go with the 350 Mag, but I am still going back and forth between that and the 383. I am getting mine done in March, not much point getting it done now and then winterizing it.

    Our current 5.0 ECM? I'm not sure. Will have to go look.

    I would think the "complete genuine MerCruiser 383ci package" would come with a new ECM. It says has a 10-pin engine wire harness plug. Any questions I should ask MichiganMotorz about this?

    We looked at the 350 also but it's more expensive than the 383 for some reason.
    For $600 cheaper I'll take 50 more HP ;)

    Ok another question. Finally got out on the water at the new home and the bay is shallow just out of canal. Today at low”ish” tide I was showing only 2 feet for a pretty good portion until I hit The channel. What’s the lowest I can Safely run the 240? I see The max draft is around 3 feet so that’s not good lol. Thoughts?

    Regarding the depthfinder - it can be set to show depth from the waterline, or it can show depth from it's position (basically, the depth below the boat).

    Just an FYI, if you're running in that kind of depth, you'll want to change your impeller more often. And even flush the block out.

    The red circle is where our place is and you can see the depths to get to the channel. I just don’t see how the 240 is gonna work. Even if I idle out of the mouth of the canals can I get On plane?

    I can take off when the depth reads 2.3 ft under the boat.

    Drop the tabs, trim the drive all the way down, and move people to the front if you have a crowd.

    Interesting...so what would you say you need to idle. I know It’s more shallow now than the summer but I’m nervous about constantly being in shallow water. The floor is all sand and “muck” so no hidden logs etc. I’d love to avoid a pontoon boat at all cost lol
