Default Finally got the Pantera wet today

had a rough weekend getting it ready, Well, it still has a few issues, like why the motor is not charging the batteries(or did i just hook up the gage wrong), the motor is not set deep enough(coulnt keep up with the fishin boats at idle in port evrgldes, unless I revved it up), suspect prop diameter may be a little small for the weight. Also need to straighten out a little hesitation at 1500, which was only annoying, since this is where I had to run to keep it moving in the no wake zones. saw the volt gage below 12, and put it back on the trailer, I will get it sorted out, and be back out soon,

That is John LLoyd Park, just south of Port Everglades in Lauderdale(Dania), on Whiskey Creek, nice place, but the big offshores dont like to go, it is kinda shallow at low tide.
