  2. You should be able to add it to your screen by going into "Data Overlay" Check page 28 in your manual for help
  3. There is one by Warren's old tackle shop but that was still closed 2 weeks ago There's a new owner opening up the tackle shop so the launch might be open now?

    1st make sure your kicker motor is trimmed out a little so that the prop is pushing straight back. If the motor is trimmed all the way in your thrust will be slightly downward and the motor will have less control. Then adjust your sea state filter downward, I usually have mine set at 1 or 2 because I think it actually helps to let the boat wander around a little when trolling Code 1 Sea State Filter. If the Autopilot seems to be too active in rough water (the kicker motor is overactive) but works perfect in calm water, adjusting the Sea State Filter may help. Factory default sets this code at the top of its range (4) which is most active (least active is 1) . Most of the time you will want to run with this parameter at the the top of its range. To decrease the autopilots sensitivity in rough water 1) Press and release [SETUP}on the handheld, the setup LED will be lit. 2) Press the [IDLE/RES] button and light up the number 1 LED . 3) Press the down arrow button to decrease the autopilots sensitivity. Note: When the autopilot is shut off, the autopilot will return to its factory default setting unless the setting is saved See page 28, Step 5.
  5. Sodus's public launch on Rte 14 is open and free You can also launch at Arney's and Sodus Bay Marina for a charge The Coast Guard launch is closed for the rest of the summer
  6. I would get a 2 cylinder 4 stroke, not much performance difference between 6 and 8 hp Any 2 cylinder motor will run much smoother than a single cylinder.

  9. The breaker on the rigger will protect the motor from overload but it doesn't protect the supply wire or your boat. A GFCI receptacle works on an AC circuit to protect you from any current leakage to ground. You should still have a fuse near the battery on the supply wire, probably 15 to 20A depending on what gauge wire you are using.
  10. I don't believe a TR-1 can handle a kicker and an I/O together. The pump and hydraulic cylinder are both sized for just a kicker and I don't think they will have enough power to move both the kicker and an I/O . Even if the I/O moved very easily, which mine doesn't, at times the TR-1 is very active and I'm sure you would burn out the pump in a short time trying to steer both motors. To use an EZ steer I think you would need to have hydraulic steering on your I/O and install a full size hydraulic AP.
  11. Dropping two bags will definitely help settle the bow down and hold a straight course when it gets rough. You will also increase the rpm's and prop thrust which also improves your steering. I have an extra set of 24" bags you can borrow to try out on your boat. Stop by sometime when you see the cover come off my boat on Stock Farm Rd.
  12. I agree with Rick I have both a B60 and a TM150 with Lowrance HDS 9's installed on my PennYan and I use the B60 98% of the time when trolling. On my small boat I'm using the Lowrance OEM 50/200 transom mount transducer and get a picture just as good as the B60.

DEC Delivers Press Release - Information to keep you connected and informed from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Share or view as a web page || Update preferences or unsubscribe DEC and State Parks Announce Boat Launch Dock Installations Underway Boat Launches Are Becoming Available Across the State to Access Great Fishing or Enjoying a Day on the Water Boaters and Anglers Encouraged to Use Boat Launches Safely and Responsibly, Recreate Locally, and Practice Social Distancing to Prevent Community Spread of COVID-19 The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) today announced that boat launch installations are ongoing across the state to ensure boaters have access to New York State's abundant recreational opportunities. Each spring, DEC and State Parks regional staff work to install docks at all sites, often before the opening day for various sportfish species. During the COVID -19 public health crisis, when boating and fishing DEC and State Parks encourage New Yorkers to recreate locally and use the hashtag #RecreateLocal, avoid busy waters, and follow the guidelines on DEC's website about fishing responsibly in New York State. Docks are being installed at boat launches across the state. Schedules for boat launch installations can change based on water levels, weather, and ice conditions. Most sites are open for public use even if the boarding dock is not installed. Boaters are encouraged to call their regional fisheries office or State Park to check the boat launch status. Restrooms at these facilities will remain closed out of an abundance of caution to prevent the community spread of COVID-19. Boat launches at DEC campgrounds remain closed at this time. Please note that the boat launch at Lake Flower in Saranac Lake is restricted due to an adjacent construction project. For more details, go to DEC Lake Flower Boat Launch announcement. A list of New York State Boat Launching Sites (PDF, 7.7 MB) contains boating access and launching areas available to the public, as well as helpful information on launching and retrieving boats and aquatic invasive species. For people with mobility issues, DEC also maintains a photo album of accessible launch and fishing sites. For information about non-DEC boat launch site operations, please contact the specific municipality or agency. Please continue to follow the CDC/New York State Department of Health guidelines for preventing the spread of colds, flu, and COVID-19: Try to keep at least six feet of distance between you and others. Avoid close contact, such as shaking hands. Wash hands often or use a hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. Avoid surfaces that are touched often, such as rails, posts, and tie off cleats. When boating and fishing, DEC and State Parks recommend New Yorkers to recreate locally, avoid busy waters, and follow the guidelines on DEC's website about fishing responsibly in New York State. If an angler arrives at a parking lot and there are several cars, consider going to another parking lot. If an angler is fishing upstream, they should fish downstream of the other angler or consider fishing another day. Do not share a car with people not in your household while traveling to fishing or boating sites. Anglers fishing from boats should always be able to maintain at least six feet of distance between one another. For more information about the benefits of being outdoors safely and responsibly, go to DEC's website. New York's waters remain cold throughout the spring. Life jacket wear is required through May 1 on pleasure boats less than 21 feet long and dressing in layers is recommended to avoid hypothermia. Boaters should be alert at all times and follow the rules of the nautical road. Under Brianna's law, all operators of motorized vessels must take a safe boating course and earn a safe boating certificate by 2025.
