  1. Yep me and my friend we spent a lot of work, many hours specially on the fitting of the helm pump for the autopilot; the way the dash is mold was the problem. Everything works perfectly. I'm looking forward to fish for those browns next spring, keeping my fingers cross with the border that stay opend.
  2. Yes it does turn or spin. I really like it. It's compact and takes many rods.
  3. Compatible with: HDS Live, Carbon and Elite Ti2, Elite FS. Hook Reveal Tripleshot (with adapter), Simrad EVO3 and GO Excellent transducer
  4. To use a blue (7 pins) connector to a black (9 pins) connector you need the adaptor cable part #: 000-12572-001 You can't use the blue connector directly to the Elite
  5. Comes with a better transducer a 3 in 1. But they may sold it all
  6. There is some excellent deal on some Lowrance units at Walmart and more specifically on the 12" and the 9" Elite Ti-2 Be aware that the Ti-2 is not compatible with the autopilot https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lowrance-Elite-12-Ti2-FishFinder-Active-Imaging-3-in-1-Preloaded-C-MAP-US-Inland-Mapping/179481355?athbdg=L1800
  7. I was just about to raise that; there is no possibility on running a autopilot with a IPad only on another Lowrance or Simrad link by NMEA2000
  8. Great news from our friends at Scotty Fishing Products. For boat owners who have rails or tracks like Princecraft, Lund, Crestliner and Tracker. With the lockable rod holder you can use all Scotty accessories without having to drill holes. Scotty a company that listen to fishermen and boaters. Available soon
  9. Finally the terrestrial border will opend for the non-essential travel, so we (Canadians) will be able fishing for browns next spring and finally I will be able to access my camp on lake Champlain.
  10. I have 3 new brackets (supports) for some Crestliner boat. I want $125 US+ shipping Dim are shown on the pics
  11. Choosing the NAC-1 with the Precision 9 is an excellent advise; few hundreds more but well worthed. If you don't have a Lowrance compatible you can get a Elite FS or has suggested a Simrad GO that are less expensive but work very well. I did a short video showing the NAC1 in action using the Precision9 IMG_0698.MOV
  12. Lowrance is compatible with the NAC-1 and Simrad is compatible with: NAC-1, NAC-2 and NAC-3 NAC-1 is enough for 80% of the guys fishing inland lake.
  13. I decide to purchase a new use boat last winter; it's a Crestliner Sportfish 1950 SST (space saving transom) with only 72hrs on it. Motor is a 175 Verado and I add a Mercury Pro-Kicker 9.9 All the electronics has been install on bus bar with all the wires well identified in the back and under the dash. In the back there is 2 Duracell 1000 AGM to feed 1 HDS Live 12" in the back, another one on the dash and another one at the bow when drifting for walleyes or jigging walleyes or lake trout. Electric motor is a Motor Guide Xi5 that is link with the Lowrance by NMEA 2000. The MG is fed by 2 Volthium ion battery; on one of the pic you will see a blue charger for those batteries; I can follow the state of charge with an app link to the charger. On the network I also have the Lowrance NAC-1 autopilot and the Mercury Vessel View Link that give me all the informations on the motor and something that I really like is to be able to use the troll control from the Lowrance screen; very useful when there is to much wind for the kicker. Naturally all units are also link by ethernet. To control the speed on the kicker I have a Trollmaster Pro3 (wifi). As for the transducers I'm running a Lowrance 3 in 1 , Airmar TM165, Lowrance Livesight and the new Active Target on the trolling motor ; there is a transducer for the Fish Hawk also. Downriggers are Scotty High Speed 2116 I also install a Blue Sea automatic switch so if the main becomes weak it's sent the volts to the other battery. There is a ton of storage space on that boat. Bost sit on a nice Shoreland'R trailer with bunk and double axels. I could'n do all this by myself I owe a bigh thanks to my friend Gerry Hopefully the border are going to be open for the brown in spring.
  14. As mentionne: trimming and sometimes it could be the prop; some pop do have a lot of "bite"
  15. I also really like the S pattern
  16. The B60 is a 50/200 like the HST-DSFBL w/o Chirp ready and it's a 600 watts instead of the Lowrance that is 300 watts
  17. If you want to stay with a transom mount there is the TM-165HW; 150-250khz with a beamwidth of 30deg and chirp ready. It's a 600 watts transducers and with the large cone it's perfect for those fish that swim in the water column; this is not the best transducer for structure fishing and fish on the bottom. It's affordable There is also the TM-185HW: Chirp-ready power of 1kW, frequency: 85-135 kHz TM mean: transom mount Naturally a 1Kw is much more $$ and it's a huge transducer.
  18. A short video to show you how extremely well the base Lowrance Nac-1 works. It's on a Crestliner Sportfish 1950 SST and a HST Live. I have 2 Live and 1 Carbon and I can control the NAC 1 from all 3. The NAC1 that I order this year is with the Precision 9 Compatible with less expensive units like the new Lowrance Elite FS and the Simrad GO IMG_0694.MOV
