  1. Thanks, I need to rethink about staying there. Two years ago I did the same thing at Oak Orchard. Spent way too much time getting to the lake. Last year I stayed at Ernst marina but they didn't have any openings this year.
  2. In July I am going to Anchor Marina on Little Sodus Bay for a few days. How long will it take to get to the lake at no wake speed. My boat can only go 3.5 MPH and create little wake. Would it be better to try to get a slip at Fair Point Marina to avoid a slow trip across the bay. Thanks for any advice.
  3. The live well pump in my boat cracked. It only leaked when I was under way. Sitting at the dock no leak at all. The bouncing opened the crack and I got about 5 gallons of water in 20 minutes. Luckily I found it before it broke completely and closed the valve to the pick up fitting.
  4. OMC Cobra outdrive for 4.3 engine. Fits 1986 to 1993. I bought this for a spare, installed new prop shaft seal and new oil. I put it on my boat for a trial run and it shifted smoothly and ran quiet. However I have a V8 motor and the gear ratio isn't the same as a V6. There is no corrosion on the unit and the skeg is not broken. U joints are tight. $500.00
  5. I have a TACO PO1-2132W, 12" x 32" fillet table which fits into a rod holder. Unfortunately i am in PA and am not going to the Lake until July. They are about $100 new so even if I sell it for $50 plus shipping you would almost have the cost of a new one. It didn't work on my boat as I don't have a reccessed rod holder in the right location.
  6. Just went to boat and enabled sonar chart. It now shows all contours. I only bought this unit for a chartplotter so I ignored the sonar settings. Thank you. I'm now am happy.
  7. I did register it and download the updates. I have a Lowrance Elite 12ti. I thought I would try it in my Humminbird 856 but it doesn't work at all there. The Lowrance map that came with my unit doesn't have deep water contours either. My boat is currently stored in a metal building so the GPS probably doesn't connect. Could this be a cause of the problem?
  8. I bought the Navionics Region+ east card. It doesn't give contour lines over 60 ft. It just has numbers. It's not as good as my 15 yr old Hot Maps card. What card should I have bought?
  9. I just wasn't sure that the unit being under the hardtop would have good reception. Since I have it I'll install it. Thanks for the wiring info.
  10. I ended up buying a lowarance Elite12 ti unit. Now I have to figure out how to wire the unit . I am going to connect it to my Simnet system via a micro c cable. Do I have to have a separate power supply to the head unit or does it get the power through the simnet sytem? I also am connecting a Point1 GPS antenna to my simnet buss to get more accurate GPS position. The point 1 has a heading compass but I already have a Simrad RC42N compass connected to the system for my autopilot. Will the system just ignore the data from the Point 1 heading compass or will there be a conflict having two heading compasses? Or should I use a GPS antenna without a heading sensor? Lowrance couldn't answer these questions and the installation manual isn't clear on this matter. Lowrance technical support reads from the same manual that I have and really don't know how to interface different systems so I have to go to the experts on this site.
  11. I see that you guys from NY have gotten use to the Safe Act. Why would you support a company like Field and Stream or Dicks that wants to take away all semi autos, shotguns, handguns and rifles. Here in PA we hope that Field and Sream soon goes bankrupt. I wouldn't go there if they were giving ammo away free.
  12. Also Because of the armrests they might not swivel around like your existing seats. I have to be in forward gear to turn my seat and I have to swivel right pretty far to get reverse. But I can deal with that for a more comfortable ride.
  13. I installed the Elite for a helm chair. It is much better than the stock Striper seat. It is wider so I could only replace the helm seat and not both seats or I couldn't get between them.
  14. Its Simnet. Yes, its a AP24. I only need the NMEA2K info sent to the Simnet system. The Lowrance and Simrad units have a micro C port and will connect. Now the only decision is , will a new unit and card give me a contour view on the west end of the lake and offer the same ease of operation as my old Globalmap in marking waypoints and displaying SOG and course. My Globalmap apparently is not compatable with the newer cards.
  15. After reading more about the Elite units, I don't believe they will interface with my autopilot. Simrad is probably the best unit. Thanks mr 580.
