    2400 Pulsare Seat Issue with Fix

    same issue on 2100 Pulsare only drivers seat, I did put blind studs with marine tex in and that has held for 2 years, but base starting to wobble again. I am assuming you carpeted over the AL plate once secured to the deck?

    Checkmate Powerboats to be Dissolved

    I can see the 2100 and 2400 being great coastal boats, especially on the ICW, anxiously awaiting to see if and when new boats are produced.

    3M Perfect It Compound and polishing Kit

    I'll second the 3M kit, pricey but well worth it. I have a 2100 Pulsare Bowrider where the white top gelcoat was yellowed around the tonneau cover where exposed to the sun. Did not need to use the scrubbing/rubbing compound but the other 2 products and pads brought back all the original...

    Going too fast???

    Jackplate BTW, meant to add you might find the manual 6" CMC setback plate is just right for that Enticer without the 2" in spacers. When you get into the 2100 Pulsare and 2400 BRX, You really need 10" of setback.

    Going too fast???

    forget trim tabs. I agree with the earlier statement trim tabs will counteract the bow lift you need for speed. The BEST single thing you can do for that Enticer is a manual jack plate. 6" minimum setback, 6" inch with 2 " spacers probably ideal. Like WILDMAN states all over in other posts...

    Outboard Motor Mounts

    Motor mounts Bob's mounts are the best. You can do SOLID Lowers and leave the upper ones alone. I got lazy and tried that on my stratos 201 ski with a Merc 200. Un-believable how just the lowers stiffened it up enough to lose the chine walk at top end. I've done all four before, but uppers...

    Oil Injection Pump Your 1986-87 Merc was the last year for the inline "tower or Power" 6 cy model. Those inlines had the infamous external OIL pump which mixed oil into the gas line prior to the carbs/engine. You are just fine totally removing it and the OIL sensor wiring and mixing 50-1 with...

    Which prop works best on 2100 pulsare?

    Chine Walk, agree with some other per the chine walk here's was my solution, solid as a rock 1). Bow cover definitely helps 2). Hydraulic steering has like no play, or if dual cable make sure there's no play. 3). 3" below the pad with 10" of setback 4). Massaged 25" Tempest prop (best all...
