  2. Gentlemen, I’m having trouble connecting NMEA wiring between 3 devices and getting them to work together. I’ve received help from the wiring wizards on this forum before, so I’m sure some one can set me straight this time…. Thanks in advance. Sending GPS data from: Humminbird 785c Chart Plotter. Red to batt. + Black to batt - Data wires: black, white, red Sending data from the Humminbird GPS to: Furuno FCV 625 echo sounder Red to batt. + Black to batt - Data wires: yellow, green, black, white, blue, orange, brown. Sending data from the Humminbird GPS to: Raymarine Sportpilot Plus autopilot. Brown to batt + Blue to batt. – Data wires: red, black, yellow, and “screen�? ( I think they mean the shield around the wires ? ) My biggest confusion is how to connect the ground wires. I am not sure about connecting any of the data ground wires together, or to the negative side of the battery. I believe I understand the “data out / transmit “ and “data in / receive “ part of the equation. I’m hoping some one would take the time to give me wire by wire connection help and a better understanding of the necessary ground connections. Thank You very much Jim S.
  3. Here's the link to the weather station on the Summerville pier at the port of Rochester....... Looking at the wind direction and speed for the last few hours helps me with a go / no go decision... http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=RPRN6

  6. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Jim S. "J.D." ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):5-14 Time on Water: 2 hrs Weather/Temp: foggy Wind Speed/Direction: calm to light ENE Waves: 0-1 ft. Surface Temp: 48-50 Location: Rochester LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 0 Total Boated:0 Species Breakdown: Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: 2-2.5 Down Speed: Boat Depth: 5-35ft. Lure Depth: 2-32ft. ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Like the other reports for today, cold water and no fish for me inside. Went to work in the AM because of the heavy fog at the river, launched at noon, couldn't see the Coast Guard station from the boat launch. Putted around the pier to the West and set one top line with an in line board and one shallow rigger. Cycled between riggers, lead core, and surface lures, not much you can do running solo ( 2 rods out ) I didn't run off shore because of the fog and the impending weather change coming, and running solo in a 17 footer. Around 2:00, I could actually feel the pressure change in my sinus cavity, so I pulled rods and headed for the river, knowing a 17 foot aluminum boat with the canvas up can turn into a sail boat quickly...... I just made the river in time.... Here's the weather data from the Summerville Pier weather station 2:10 PM..... wind @ 6 kts. gusts @ 8.9 kts. 2:20.......... wind @ 20 kts. gusts @ 25.1 kts. 2:30.......... wind @ 19 kts. gusts @ 31.1 kts.
  7. What size is the stock treble hook on the Dream Weaver SS spoons?? Thanks
  8. Andy, It's easy to tie your own new leaders. Here's a link to some helpful videos.... http://www.fishdoctorcharters.com/template.tpl?selector=video
  9. Check out the NK website for their spring factory sale. tons of blanks at very good prices
  10. Scoots, read the report : I-Bay by Yankee and Jax. ... sounds like they were trolling down around the Webster Park area
  11. He is talking more on the lines of target practice, like tossing out an old boat cushion or something on a flat day and shooting at it.
  12. I'm having a discussion with a guy at work and I'm sure someone on this site knows the law and can set us straight. Is it legal to discharge a firearm offshore ( 5 or more miles) from a boat on Lake Ontario? I say no, he seems to think it's ok. Thanks, Jim S.
  13. Jim Ras, or Mayers marina, North East corner of Irondequoit Bay. Both guys are great with older motors If you cant find anything, they make after market units that will work with your motor. A bud of mine put one on his boat for the same reason you stated and it worked perfectly. Something like this: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat21276-cat350012&id=0000925011020a&navCount=1&podId=0000925&parentId=cat350012&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=IA&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat601233&hasJS=true
  14. Raider 44, Furuno has some monochrome units with duel frequency in your price range. http://www.hodgesmarine.com/FURUNO-LS6100-FISHFINDER-p/furls6100.htm
  15. I agree with Motoman..... running the Furuno 620 fror 3 years now and love it... I got mine here: Note! there is a $50.00 rebate available from Furuno http://www.hodgesmarine.com/Furuno-Fcv620-Package-W-Transom-Mount-Tri-Ducer-p/furfcv620-pwd.htm
  16. I feel your pain brother...... I've got 4 Vectors and since hearing they are going "belly up", I've been trying to get two more myself..... If I find some online I'll shoot you a PM Jim S.
  17. Slightly used my a$$.... That sleigh has more miles on on than a Las Vegas hooker...
  18. Time to think out of the box...... Tell her to keep her dining room, finish the addition the way YOU want it, and make that room your "hunting lodge".... fire place, bear skin rugs, game mounts, leather furniture, etc......
  19. My home port is Braddocks Bay, and is VERY shallow most of the year. I switched over to a composite prop 2 years ago and am very happy with the performance. I runs just like aluminum, but the blades will deflect before they break removing most of the stress taken when you hit something with your prop. The price is right too. I bought it as a spare, but after running it a few trips, decided to run it full time... http://www.comprop.com/
