Nice video! Looks like you guys are having fun. You tow over highway 17? I want to try fishing down there.

Yes, towing over highway 17. The pavement on 17 is quite smooth and it's a nice ride (much better than 85 and 280, which are also part of my route).

I think the 410, 420 and 430 are basically the same boat. Mercury/Quicksilver just "upgraded" the number part of it. My boat is listed as 13' 9", so it's just 419.1cm.

My motor, a Suzuki DF30A, was having intermittent power cut off, and sometimes wouldn't start unless I gave it a gentle whack on the side, or turn the steering wheel. I spent an hour yesterday jiggling various wires and eventually found that the ground connection to the engine block was loose. It should have been factory torqued to 7Nm, but apparently someone forgot. Over 50 hours the vibration make the bolt very loose, and I had to made about 10 turns to tighten it!

It's a good time to get such little things fixed, as I am about to put the boat on the market :-)

If there's something this boat lacks, the ability to catch fish isn't one of them ....
