  1. Wanted

    You have a PM.
  2. What kind of boat is it from?
  3. Not cheap! A quick check of my records showed EV200 AP was about $2500 and the Sea Star hydraulic steering system was about $1000, then install costs. That was in 2015. Hank (L&M) did the install for me (nice job). He probably could give you specifics for you application.
  4. Something to consider.... Under most circumstances, you will be trolling with one engine. If your boat is like mine, there is power steering assist on only one engine. To keep engine hrs. similar on both engines, you will likely troll about half of the time on each engine. This means that when using the non power assist engine to troll, you won't have power assist (unless you leave the other engine running). Without power assist, steering is possible but stiff. If using an AP in this application, it could be a heavy load for the AP. Converting to hydraulic steering eliminates these issues.
  5. What are the specifics of your 27'? Single engine or twins? I have a 27' with twin I/O's and I converted mine to hydraulic steering and then used a Raymarine EV200 autopilot. Works well.

  7. I'm also interested in getting a 7mm-08. Would like to keep the cost down but function and reliability are most important. Have heard good things about Ruger. Opinions? Other suggestions?
  8. Gator, Have you hinge cut the ash this time of year before? If so, how did it work out? Do they leaf out in the spring? How long do they last during the year?
  9. potsie225 you have a PM
  10. Mitchell 300's, 3 for $25 shipped Just cleaning out some old stuff. These all turn, but the bails are a little stiff, etc. Would need to be cleaned up and repaired as needed. Sold as is. If anyone is interested, I'll sell all three plus the spare spool for $25 shipped. PM me if interested.
  11. Nicely done, Lou!
