  1. THANKS! Everyone has been helpful, greatly appreciate the time and responses. Thanks again, Dave
  2. Thanks guys for the responses. B&B no need for pics as yours is a Crestliner. The head support is a must.
  3. Frogger, thanks for the response. Yes, I will be using it mostly for steering, as I troll mostly alone.
  4. Good Day, I have searched and found split opinions with which shaft length to use. I thought I would post with specifics and try to better understand any issues or concerns. I have not picked up the FM as of yet, so am unable to do any measurements myself. I will be trolling the majority of the time in the Fingers. Mostly on Keuka, Canadaigue and Cayuga. Have had communications with with Fat Trout (thanks!) and his recommendation is the 72 inch. My concerns are when the 72 is stowed, I have heard there may be issues with closing the windshield and sometimes with docking. Also, I will be doing some cast fishing out of the bow, and think the 72 may get in way. On the other hand, the 60 may be a better fit out of the water. But, can't go wrong with the 72 in the water. FM has a 150 w 9.9. Anyone that has experience with a GM 60/72 I appreciate your thoughts and guidance. Dave
  5. Kinghunter - how long do you usually get on those Lithium batteries?
  6. I am starting to get the picture. Just don't touch the darn connection!...... Thanks guys, appreciate the response.
  7. Good Day, Has anyone found a better solution to their FishHawk battery wire connector? The connection from the battery pack to the three prong connector on mine just keeps breaking off. I get a few weeks out of it and then repair it. I have replaced the unit once so far, and do not want to keep purchasing a new battery pack every season. The wires are very brittle and do not last. Anyone else having issues? I do unplug the batteries after each use. Thanks for the feedback, Dave
  8. All, I have two Cannon HS10's that are 13-14 years old. They are mounted on swivel mounts. A friend of mine just lost his, only 4 years old, broke under trolling and lost it all. I have the same set up and would like to prevent, fix and upgrade my pair. I have searched and came up with the SS mounts from cannon but these are a bit pricey I think. My question is, has Cannon addressed this with their new composit swivel mounts? Are they any improvement? Just get the SS version? Is there a second manufacturer? What works? Thanks for your response, Dave
  9. Good Day, water level is low, has anyone used the PY launch and the channel to the lake lately? Hoping to launch Friday. Thanks, Dave
  10. Good Day, I have a 2008 Merc 115EFI. I have been trying to better understand the VesselView App and its connectivity. Do I need a module in the engine (bluetooth)? If so, anyone use one? I would think that the App download and bluetooth device on the engine is all that is required. Part number for bluetooth, if that is required (plug and play?). Is it worth it? Thanks for your responses. Dave
  11. Good Day, I am spooling my LC reels using PP Moss Green. I have used this for the past 4-5 years and have had no issues. I am more curious then looking for advise, what is your opinion on color of backing for LC? I believe it really doesn't matter as long as you are using a leader. In line boards, LC, leader is the set up. Discussion for a snowy day. Thanks, Dave
  12. +1 trout hunter - invest in the DR's. You will use them overtime you are out. If not, you may find it difficult to get down where you need to be on a constant basis.
