  1. Tuna Tom rebuilt 7 old Diawa 47 lc's for me 2 seasons ago. Did a complete teardown, clean, inspect, replace broken/worn parts, upgraded all the drag systems..... $190 and I now have 7 reels that work like new with way smoother drags.

  2. I work as a mold maker in a shop in Rochester. We have used the Dri deck squares as floor mats for at least 10 years... coolant, oil, metal chips, grinding grit, and constant abuse.... this stuff wears like iron.... I think the mats will outlast your boat !!.... easy to take apart to re configure or clean.

    SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS

    ====================

    Got a chance for a quick 2 hour trip solo this morning, Temp. bands are very tight, 44 degrees to 60 degrees in less than 10 ft. Found Bait and fish in 120 FOW, and cris- crossed through a big school of bait until I could get something to go.... Couldn't get the wire / flasher -flys to go today, all fish came on spoons on the riggers, 40- 60 back. NK mag bloody death took a mid teens king, blue and yellow Stinger mag took a steelie, DW SS green gator took another small steelie.

  4. Good post Capt. Vince.

    I was thinking the same this spring. My brother in law is a marine mechanic, so he got my 1996 Merc outboard in March. Everything made of rubber on the power head - fuel lines, return lines, fuel pump, etc. was replaced with new products that can withstand ethanol. The fuel pump looked to be breaking down, as did some of the fuel lines. .... better safe then sorry..

    Fished Braddocks to the lighthouse Friday AM

    Good temps @ 70 down, some bait, and active fish swimming in and out of the spread. Both wires and riggers were working today, green or white flashers with green or hammer flys, NK mag die hard, purple and black Apex all took fish. Steel head and laker were 6/8 lbs. all the kings were 12 / 16 lbs. Fleas were a bit of a pain on the wires but still fishable.

    Good luck this weekend !!

    Lots of bait and fish off Braddocks in the 175 ft. area. 55 degrees with 120 ft. of cable out. Wires were the best, 300 out on a #2 set, green Pro Troll with a green glow fly, and a green and black Spinny with a green and black fly. The only touch on the rigger was the Steel head 110 down, NK green gator. The king was 17lbs, the other fish ran 5-8 lbs. A few fleas on the wires, but nothing to cause a problem ....yet.. Perfect day to be on the water...

  7. 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.
