New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

The Cabela's sales guy asked his Yamaha rep again, and I'm still waiting for a response. Cabela's got their money on December 23rd. Alumacraft didn't ship the boat until April 28th, which is when Cabela's ordered the motor. Had Cabela's ordered the motor when they got the money, then I'd be on the l...

Tuna Fishing Point Loma San Diego

I recently talked the girlfriend into trying a 3/4 day tuna fishing charter. We spent from 6AM to 8PM on the water, in an area probably 3 hours south of the Coronado Islands, and each landed a 30 lb bluefin tuna. We may be forever ruined for freshwater fishing. If this sort of thing is on your bucke...

So I did get a chance to see my boat, in pieces, in the Cabela's back lot.

And the motor, less tiller and controls.

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

I called Cabela's again today and got the latest info on my boat. The salesman says he has good news and bad news. According to him the tiller handle arrived, but the controls didn't. His Yamaha rep says the controls are backordered until June. I ordered this boat and paid on December 23rd. Alumacra...

Mercury 25

Unless your current prop is dimensionally inappropriate, imbalanced, or damaged, I don't think a stainless steel replacement will make much difference. With 2-strokes I've had, I noticed that performance would decline when crank bearings became worn, regardless of good compression. Vibration robs po...

Engineering Fuel In Outboards?

"onthewater" came pretty darned close. The flash points between a TCW3 and a 2-stroke air cooled oil are different. Think the viscosity is about the same between the two. He nailed it on the operating temps between the two styles of engines. This will indeed create excessive carbon in the exhaust p...

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

Well, Cabelas agreed to take $500 off the package price. That number is right near the 5% I asked for, in exchange for waiting another 2 weeks. So I go back to waiting, tick-tock-tick-tock. I don't think I'll ever order a boat again, and I'll never pay up front. EDIT:. I don't think this is buyout r...

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

Talked to Cabela's last week. They got my boat and asked when I wanted to pick it up. I had a previously scheduled California trip through Friday, so I said I'd pick up my new boat today. I quizzed Cabela's on everything, from the trailer to the bimini top. I got the call yesterday from Cabela's, my...

05 yamaha 25 4 stroke

The slow jet is primarily for idle and low RPM, the needle is for the midrange, and the main jet handles the upper end. If it stalls out after a minute at WOT, it shouldn't be a jetting problem. The problem is the fuel demand is exceeding the fuel delivery into the float bowl. A clogged fuel filter,...

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

I don't know yet what the price will be. I ordered the Alumacraft V-16 on December 23rd with a Merc 20 hp and a bimini top, gel met battery and other doodads. I paid $92XX.XX at the time. I changed the motor to the new Yam F25 "C", with all the options a month later. It'll be close to $5,000, but I ...

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

Well, I'm still waiting for my chance to break one in. I made the 50 mile one way trip to Cabela's on Saturday. I showed a manager my receipt for the Alumacraft utility boat and motor I paid nearly $10,000 cash for in December. I was told 8-10 weeks for the boat, early to mod-March for the motor. I ...

Well, it's mid March now.

I ordered my Alumacraft utility boat at Cabela's on December 23rd, 2016. Still no boat, still no motor.

New 2017 25hp 4 stroke efi yamaha

Well, it's March now. My new Yamaha 25 should be coming sometime this month.

I saw this video and it got me drooling:

It should make my little Alumacraft V16 go pretty well. It'll even have power trim on the tiller!!
