  1. I have 4 of them I bought used about 12 years ago.  $900  for all from someone that thought they were too complicated.  Run well.  Had one display go last year.    I like the fact that I can progam the depth and let it run down while I am doing something else.  They also have the timed up and down cycling within a set distance like 10 ft or so.  use it sometimes but never really noticed a improvement in releases.   Retrieve is auto stop but it is not a short stop that detects disconnect of cable from water, it is an actual count up of pulley rotation.

  2. Cannon rod holders on a 27 Sportcraft. They work well but the caps come off when removing a loaded rod. I put machine screws to hold the caps on. CANNON replaces 3 lost ones under warranty

  3. I have 27 inboard with 9.9 mounted on the center. It is on a home made bracket since I have access to a machine shop. It is hooked to the rudder arm with a steering cable. Works great with the hydraulic steering and autopilot. There is a company that makes that kind of bracket but it costs $500+. I Can send the bracket drawings if interested.

  4. I had a 115 Johnson (93) that appeared to stop pumping.  I pulled the pump and found it to be good.  It turned out to be the fitting thru the case at the "pee hole" was plugged.  It is smaller than the tube to it.  A lot of work for nothing.  After that , always poked a wire into it when it stopped.  All Johnny-Rude owners should be aware of this , especially running in weedy areas.

  5. Last year I installed a new (2014) Yamaha F70 LA (four stroke) on a Sea Nymph GLS175.  I like almost everything about the motor except two things. 1st, the idle below 900 rpm shakes a bit.  I am told this is normal for inline 4 Yammy's.   Since I use this mostly for slow trolling early spring browns, that is a nuisance.  Yamaha states that the Talon SDS props improve low idle characteristics and allow easing shifting into gear, which is my second complaint.   Has anyone had experience with the difference between the K type aluminum and the Talon SDS on their Yamaha 4 stroke.  Are Yamaha's claims accurate ?   I would like to know before spending the $$ on a new prop.

      I have the same type F70LA motor on a pontoon that is a 2013 and the act exactly the same so I assume it is inherent in the motor.


  6. Slimy grimy is an acid wash usually used on fglass. I have used it on al but dont let it on too long

    Mix with near boiling water and spray on with a yard type sprayer. Rubber gloves and scotchbrite while wet os the way to go
