Re: Kaboat

I have beach launched a few times. Easiest is with late model 2.5hp 2 stroke. Weighs 35lbs and can make 5 knots with two or three people. Tohatsu 6hp is pretty good, best power to weight until you...

Re: Kaboat

Ah, gotcha. Yes, weight distribution is a huge thing on the kaboat. I could probably get faster if I had a tiller extender and sat in the middle, plus my engine is really too much for the transom I...

Re: Kaboat

Wow, you are making 22 knots!?!? That is great! I don't remember if we were wide open when you were on mine but with the 15hp Suzuki EFI, 19 knots is about my top speed, although with 3 guys and gear...

Re: Wetsuit lube (CureCare discontinued)

If you want a FRAGRANCE FREE conditioner, Whole Foods 365 makes one. I haven't tried it in a wetsuit yet.

Re: new dive watch

I don't miss a dive watch when I am hunting on my own terms but I need it constantly for training, teaching, in water guide, and most importantly of course instabragging. From a safety standpoint...

Re: new dive watch

Honestly I have barely used the compass and GPS, but whenever you exit dive mode it makes you save your current location, and during dive mode you can manually set a waypoint. When you sync to your...

Re: new dive watch

I broke down and got one (even with discount it was steep for me) after flooding to two F10's in a row. The Garmin charges through the case in a special cradle so it should be impossible to flood,...

Re: Moving to California

Welcome back. I haven't dove out of Destin in some years and my old man has also sold his boat but lots of great memories of spearing out there. Seems to be a much better freedive spearing scene...

Re: Little Boat

Engine weight is less of a concern on the kind of boat you are talking about, but for small engines, the new Suzukis are really nice. They make a 10, 15, and 25hp which are fuel injected and dont...

Re: Carbon Fin Reviews

Re: Boating Near Beaches
