    Finally got her bloody improperly

    I had a nice salty ice slurry for him and packed his cavity after gutting. Really tasty fish, sand eels make them taste good...

    Finally got her bloody improperly

    Went 29 miles to just turn around since forecast wasn't coming true. Could only comfortably make 8 mph so decided to throw spread in and troll back to inlet. About 2 hours into way back we got a good knock down that stayed tight. I cleared the other lines while brother kept boat pointed into...

    New 22 21 se

    It's a solid boat but couldn't imagine not having tabs. I've had mine out 20+ miles off of Jersey and hope to do 30+ this weekend if weather allows. She pounds and tends to be wet at the helm when tabs are down in rough seas. Check your rod holders, parker will send u backing plates if there not...

    Experience with newer 21SE?

    I'd say it's a pretty capable boat, w/ the mod v it will pound in a tight chop. But while drifting or trolling it's rock steady compared to the other boats were fishing next to. I watch the deep v's rock back and forth all day while we barely flinch. The fuel mileage is awesome, gonna find out...

    Experience with newer 21SE?

    Just got mine, 20 hour service done last night. Took it 25 off of Jersey on Monday. It will pound and soak u if you push her hard. Tabs are a must for comfort but will cause more spray. I got the 150 which is plenty. Been in some big swells and tight 2 to 4s and never felt unsafe.

    Washdown pump Question

    Hi fella's, I was wondering if it's ok to leave the washdown pump switch on for extended periods of time. Mine seems to act like it has a pressure/flow switch. Pump comes on when in use then turns off when not in use. So it seems like it could stay on w/out harming the pump. Just trying to...

    2022 21'se finally home

    Well she handles a decent '3-5 spaced out swell much better than the tight 2-4's. Same speed (18-22ish) basically just a little faster on way out. Bow down was super wet on way home had to turn down sea for a few miles. Drier w/ just a touch of tabs and ride wasn't much different. Yami ran...

    2022 21'se finally home

    I'll take some pics tomorrow from under the gunnels. The washers used on 4 of the rod holders are maybe the size of a dime. Screws only on 2 rod holders, hard to describe but the pics will show what I'm talking about. It's ugly and looks like it was definetly a pleasure boater or new guy that...

    2022 21'se finally home

    We troll 16-48 oz mojos up here and bunker spoons w/ drails for stripers so they will see some abuse. Also hoping to sneak out to the inshore lumps a few times so may be trolling for tuna's. The wide tracker spreader bars used on the lumps put a lot of pressure on the rods as well. Maybe some...

    2022 21'se finally home

    The under gunnel storage is lacking but I'm gonna stick with the trident in a rod holder or 2. It's mainly only a issue on the trips where we bring the kitchen sink to be prepared for whatever the seas allow. You did a nice job on the install man, functional and looks factory
