  1. Ok...thanks...that is my thinking is to move out as far as possible. I have the room to do it. Thanks and i will start from there. Any thoughts of wiring directly to battery?
  2. I just installed a 50/200 Airmar P66 Transom mount ducer. I have a Fish Hawk X4D. My fish locator is a GARMIN 7610 XSV. When fish locator is on 50/200 split the fish hawk readings are all over the place. When i turn the 50 Khz off and run just 200 khz the readings are rock solid. I spoke to others and they have no issues running 50/200 split as far as interference with Fish Hawk. I have hawk wired to a fuse block up at the dash in front...i run a 15lb ball with hawk probe on same side as hawk transducer. Here is a pic of my back of the boat. Picture to left shows Fish hawk ducer to the left and p66 to the right. Pic to the right shows trolling motor and i have room to move hawk ducer to left of transom strap near edge if need be. Any thoughts? i am stumped...Thanks...
  3. If you have one...can you post it? I am looking for the same...thanks
  4. Unfortunately I have not had much success with the TD..I would reset it send it down...reel back up and every time it would read a different depth with same conditions..line out etc. I sold it and.I ended up investing in a smart troll system. It is real time at the dipsey...rigger etc. Real game changer for me. Might be worth a look. The owner is a super nice guy and real helpful.
  5. I was always told not to run garden hose water on full when using the muffs. I use about 1/2 or less pressure. You can force water into areas of motor under pressure...i am not saying you damaged the motor...try using lower pressure and see if it stops.
  6. Here is a good read: The world has gone crazy!! You are here: Home / Health / Health Portal Notes / Letter from Toronto: An Infectious Diseases Specialist Reflects on COVID-19 Letter from Toronto: An Infectious Diseases Specialist Reflects on COVID-19 March 10, 2020 by Letter to Editor Email Editor’s Note From the pages of Facebook: I’m a doctor and an Infectious Diseases Specialist. I’ve been at this for more than 20 years seeing sick patients on a daily basis. I have worked in inner city hospitals and in the poorest slums of Africa. HIV-AIDS, Hepatitis,TB, SARS, Measles, Shingles, Whooping cough, Diphtheria…there is little I haven’t been exposed to in my profession. And with notable exception of SARS, very little has left me feeling vulnerable, overwhelmed or downright scared. I am not scared of Covid-19. I am concerned about the implications of a novel infectious agent that has spread the world over and continues to find new footholds in different soil. I am rightly concerned for the welfare of those who are elderly, in frail health or disenfranchised who stand to suffer mostly, and disproportionately, at the hands of this new scourge. But I am not scared of Covid-19. What I am scared about is the loss of reason and wave of fear that has induced the masses of society into a spellbinding spiral of panic, stockpiling obscene quantities of anything that could fill a bomb shelter adequately in a post-apocalyptic world. I am scared of the N95 masks that are stolen from hospitals and urgent care clinics where they are actually needed for front line healthcare providers and instead are being donned in airports, malls, and coffee lounges, perpetuating even more fear and suspicion of others. I am scared that our hospitals will be overwhelmed with anyone who thinks they ” probably don’t have it but may as well get checked out no matter what because you just never know…” and those with heart failure, emphysema, pneumonia and strokes will pay the price for overfilled ER waiting rooms with only so many doctors and nurses to assess. I am scared that travel restrictions will become so far reaching that weddings will be canceled, graduations missed and family reunions will not materialize. And well, even that big party called the Olympic Games…that could be kiboshed too. Can you even imagine? I’m scared those same epidemic fears will limit trade, harm partnerships in multiple sectors, business and otherwise and ultimately culminate in a global recession. But mostly, I’m scared about what message we are telling our kids when faced with a threat. Instead of reason, rationality, open-mindedness and altruism, we are telling them to panic, be fearful, suspicious, reactionary and self-interested. Covid-19 is nowhere near over. It will be coming to a city, a hospital, a friend, even a family member near you at some point. Expect it. Stop waiting to be surprised further. The fact is the virus itself will not likely do much harm when it arrives. But our own behaviors and “fight for yourself above all else” attitude could prove disastrous. I implore you all. Temper fear with reason, panic with patience and uncertainty with education. We have an opportunity to learn a great deal about health hygiene and limiting the spread of innumerable transmissible diseases in our society. Let’s meet this challenge together in the best spirit of compassion for others, patience, and above all, an unfailing effort to seek truth, facts and knowledge as opposed to conjecture, speculation and catastrophizing. Facts not fear. Clean hands. Open hearts. Our children will thank us for it. Dr. Abdhu Sharkawy
  7. Just buy a Ranger Heavy-Duty Hook-Free Treated Replacement Net at Fish USA for less than 20.00? Already coated.
  8. I have a 9.9 pro kicker electric start with alternator and my transducer for fish hawk is near motor and no issues. Is transducer in prop wash...could be problem?. You can try a ferrite ring. Did probe work same location before kicker? Wire temporarily probe/head unit to a separate battery not tied into charging system and see if that works and you can narrow down issue.
  9. Great Job! I love my Starcraft Fishmaster and you will love your Mariner.... great boat for Big Water!
  10. I own a Starcraft Fishmaster 210. Great boat for Lake Ontario. Great warranty and tows very easy. Check em out...
  11. Amen on the Itroll...going on 3years and works flawless!
  12. I would look at itroll system. I looked at several and this is the one i purchased...works flawlessly for 3 years now and very easy to install.
  13. I have EV-150 installed on my Fishmaster 210 with a 150 HP and a 9.9 kicker. Kicker is attached to main motor by a threaded steering rod. System works great for trolling and using autopilot on kicker.
  14. I am looking to purchase a new net. What net are you guys using for salmon on the boat? Need something somewhat tangle free.....long handle and large enough basket. Thanks.
