  1. My sport pilot has a cable going to a spliter block, a cable is than just connected to the block and the fish finder, easy as that...
  2. Wanted

    There was a real nice 2900 in akron, 50,000, I just could swing it...yet..
  3. Thanks Les, I have a lot to think about, As stated , Im a contractor so I deal with the employee and tool loss, ya, oops, left it somewhere... i also deal with weather everyday, snow, wind and rain as we do snow removal, concrete, blacktop sealing, I need good weather for everything I do.. I have a great respect for all who charter, you work hard, and I get that...if it was easy everyone would do it. I love to be on the water and on my boat, I have a lot of free fishing friends and family and ya, there too I get to pay for the fuel, lost equipment, rod overboard, net, lures lost, rod broken, now think its time to turn the page, I am thinking if I did a few charters on the weekends, it may help pay for the boat maint and ins... I don't have the expectation to do this full time although i didn't think I would do a charter after i got licensed either, getting a licenses was a lot to learn, now i have a lot to think about... Rick
  4. I find myself in the same situation as baitballin, I have fished Erie for years, been on Ontario several times too, I got my captain license last yr just because I always wanted it, not to start a business, and now have lots of people who know me as a fisherman and now a captain are asking me to take them out, i have never taken anyone for money and wouldn't know what to charge, I have been on several charters myself so I know what i paid.. I know about people as Im a contractor, I also have a fully rigged 26' boat with all the bell and whistles...I also know what it cost me to get this set up...maintained, ect...Im not sure Ill be comfortable with strangers on my boat, handling my gear, and I'm sure they will want to be drinking, as I have never have allowed alcohol on my boat before, we drink when we are done has always been my saying.... any thoughts, Rick
  5. We got about 4-6" here in st marys pa, where do you put 26" of snow??
  6. yes, sold thank you..
  7. Wanted

  8. I Have talked with the raymarine tech and they tell me to move the transducer again, also the maps were suppose to have a one ft. contour lines and i could not get hardly any contours, they told me it was in the settings but after several times trying to find them, I quit and just used my hds-8.. I thought of a thru hull ducer but I trailer and also they dont have a chirp thru ducer.. I am looking at the lowrance or humming bird units and may yank this off.. just frustrated with it, i never had to move a transducer so many times and this is my fourth boat...I can say it was nice for connecting to my autopilot, and i did like the touch screen..
  9. I have a a98 that I got new last year, couldnt get the maps to work even after 2 new cards sent to me. I also cant mark anything over 10 mph, I know, move the transducer... done that many times.. I dont like it and am thinking of taking it back off... I am glad I left my lowrance hds-8 on also, I used it for the map... Rick
  10. okuma magda 30d I have 3 magda 30d reels and one 30 dx pro . these are used but work good, one reel is missing the plastic over the counter, 100.00$$ and you pay shipping... Thanks Rick
  11. sold pending payment and pick up...
  12. I do like the tiara lake bound, been looking at the 2900s but no way to afford it yet, Ill keep the striper..
  13. Here is a photo of how it was mounted in the boat I got this from.. he made a mount and they are side by side..
  14. This is an electric start, I added more pics that were just sent to me from the marine where the motor is located, I never ran this motor other than to buy it.. It has 500-600 hrs and was not installed on a boat until 2009, This is only about a100 # motor if you look it up, has a charging system and here is a pic or the controls.(simular to this). I just got off the phone with my mechanic and asked him since we are going with a new motor which brand ? he said stay with honda, great running motors .. easy to service.. Rick. my # is 814-594-0998 if you want to talk
