    Console dashboard - winter project

    Stumbled on this picture (attached below) on the inter webs and love this dashboard! My 1999 2300 has the sliding plexi with large glovebox storage behind it. I’d loose all the storage if I did this but I’m not sure I’d. are all that much. (Mostly collects carnage and loose tools etc...

    2300DV W/Bracket - Yami F250 - Motor Mount ?

    Yeah, I'm going to have a welder take a look at that. the crack is only on that one side and its in an odd spot. I suppose I could dry sail it, but I like to go at the drop of a hat. And the dry stack thing takes a bit of planning!

    2300DV W/Bracket - Yami F250 - Motor Mount ?

    Was able to get about 2 months on the new to me boat prior to yanking it for winter. Enough time to creat a list of the things that annoy me! Note: Boat sits on a mooring. With the motor fully tilted up, a big part of the lower unit remains in the water. GRRRR. This is bad because the lower...

    Drain plug stuck, help

    ditto on the pipe wrench - at least a 2' handle. If that does not do it, something else is going on.

    Bennet Tabs on my 2300DV - Observations and ?'s

    Sounds like your running Lenco tabs... Yes the Orange wire is the auto-retract wire. You splice it into the switch power lead if you want Auto retract.

    Bennet Tabs on my 2300DV - Observations and ?'s

    For Bennets or Lenco's? I can speak for Lenco, the answer is yes. There is one power wire, I think orange that is the auto return. Simply disconnect. If Bennet, I'm surprised. My Bennet tabs are absolutely silent! (Lenco=noisy)

    Bennet Tabs on my 2300DV - Observations and ?'s

    Loving how the Hydro Bennet tabs effect the ride of my 2300DV. I've only ever had Lenco's. The Bennets move the boat really fast when on plane. Impressive. Takes some getting used to as I tend to over adjust then have to correct. Question... My Lenco's would return to a 'no trim' state when...

    New to me: 98 2300DV

    Love it! Does that lower access panel allow you to get in there? Maybe shimmy in on your back?

    2300 Latch Question

    Crud. Sorry - I goofed the whole picture process. So, I just took these off Google images. The ‘seat/hatch’ in question is the fwd center hinged seat. Directly aft of the anchor locker.

    2300 Latch Question

    So my 2300 has a deck hatch with a broken latch. (See pics). The broken latch is the spring type shown in the picture and it’s the center ‘door’ in the picture. Anyone know if this may have been factory? Or, better yet! What’s the best type of latch to replace this tiny perko latch! that...
