Arima Life / Re: 4hp Nissan 4stroke as kicker?
« Last post by Arimaway on Today at 02:38:35 AM »
Friday I replied to his email asking if I could look at it Saturday and if he could run it a while when I come.
I never got an email back. 
CL ad is still up though.

Arima Boats & Equipment for Sale or Trade / Powered jack plate
« Last post by davidsea on Today at 01:03:11 AM »
  Probably not of interest to most Arima owners,  but a good deal if you want one:    CMC PowerLift  Jack plate, Model PL-65
    Not new, but lightly used and complete with all parts and owner's/installation manual.   5 1/2" setback, electric/hydraulic drive with integral pump and lift cylinder (no parts inside the boat).  5" vertical travel, rated to lift/lower up to 300HP V6 outboards at full throttle.  Parts are 6061 T6 aluminum extrusions or stainless - no welds or castings.  This is the upgrade model with sender and dash gauge for lift position.  Includes the factory up/down toggle switch, plus the upgrade "turn-indicator" lever switch that mounts behind the steering wheel. After power trim and trim tabs, the final step in 'tuning' your hull.  Very cool to jack the engine for skinny water or best efficiency, then drop it for hole shot or better bite in really rough water.     New price is around $1000 online, yours for $500.  You pick up or I will deliver in the Puget Sound area for free, or you pay shipping.

Tips & Tricks / Re: Floor cart / roller for boat help

Some real nice ideas above. I was hoping for a cheaper solution. I was thinking about a jack or a couple jack's.  I know harbor freight has different kind of jacks....taller would be better.

Arima Life / Re: 3 blade or 4 blade prop
« Last post by AJFishin on Yesterday at 07:34:48 PM »
Did you keep the same diameter but went down 2" in pitch when you went from 3 to 4 blade? Are you using Aluminum or SS?

Originally on my 16SC I had a 3 blade aluminum prop with a 17" pitch
Then I went down to a Solas Amita 4 blade aluminum prop with a 13" pitch

Arima Life / Re: Bimini Rod Holders
« Last post by Arimadrifter on Yesterday at 06:57:42 PM »
I have the same setup as Fisherdv. I run 4 on each side with the rear-most on each side raked off at an angle for trolling. I run my longest rods in those two holders (outrigger like) and it allows me to easily troll 6 rods. Love the rod Storage that is completely out of the way and very solid.
