That's a beautiful photo of your work of art, definitely worth framing and hanging on a wall at home. I finished my FS18 in May 2016, and before I was finished a friend gave me 2 used wheel chair batteries. I would need to check the manufacturer, but one of those batteries has been in the boat for over 4 years without ever being put on a charger. Still starts every time, and runs the lights as well. I'm impressed, especially since the majority of my runs are only about 1-2 miles, than the boat sits for a week. The second battery is in the garage, never been charged, and still has a good charge. Whoever built these batteries built them right I guess. The motor is a 2015 20 hp Merc. Mike

Thanks guys! Smart group of guys here! I am getting gear ready to head out to Maine and this morning went to take the battery charger off the jetski and put on the boat to bump it up a bit and sure as sh$t both terminals on the battery were floppy loose! Never saw that under the cover of the battery box. So tightened her back up and stuck the charger on for the next few hours. Lets see how the week goes! Appreciate all the help fellas. Really do.

Hopefully that's the culprit, my money says it is. Have a great time in maine, that's a tough ticket to get these days!
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Amen! We got skunked last 2 days in lake ontario, I figure we put some in the bank to be cashed out at a later date. Better luck to you!

Well her name had been a huge debate among family members.
We settled in on:Image

I will say a great nickname for this forum could be Phat Ashley! :lol:
I cannot officially name her that as my niece is named Ashley and my sister would have my hide naming her phat!

Great name. Sounds like the family had fun deciding on it.

What’s the “O” on the compass signify?

My guess:

Nord
Sud
Osten
Westen

The cardinal directions auf Deutsch!
