  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.
  15. Garmin 7610xsv. Take a look at this picture of kings working bait on lake Ontario. Doesn't get much better than this.
  16. You need to buy a rubber switch boot to go over switch to keep water out... buy from fish307...authorized cannon parts dealer. This is what i use..it is black...made by GE.. door and window sealant 100 % silicone.. available at Lowes/Depot and does not have acetic acid for curing agent.
  17. Pap...here is my set-up. It works flawlessly with my Raymarine autopilot. Autopilot controls hydraulics and turns both motors at same time with rod in place. Both motors raise independent of each other with rod and heim joints. Buy 1/2 heim joints on e-bay and 1/2 threaded rod stainless. Cut to fit... attach heim joints and you are all set. Very inexpensive to make and simple. Will need kicker bracket as seen in picture....I bought directly from merc and will need HP6083 SeaStar Tie Bar Hardware Kit .
  18. Pap i will take a picture of my set-up....give me a bit...
  19. Pap...do you have Seastar hydraulic steering?...if you do, they sell Sierra HP6083 SeaStar Tie Bar Hardware Kit...then buy 1/2" heim joints on e-bay for about 10 bucks a piece...buy 1/2 stainless threaded rod. You will have to buy or fabricate a bracket for kicker...mine is a Mercury and I bought bracket from them. Mount bar with heim joints to main motor and kicker motor with hitch pins and you are done. You are mounting inside boat..not outside boat like the crappy EZ steer rod. Motor will raise and lower independently of each other and will work with autopilot. You can remove rod in about 30 seconds or less. I keep mine together at all times. Works great and was very reasonable in price. Any questions give me a shout...
  20. Pap...I just purchased a EV150 by Raymarine and it controls my 150 hp main motor and 9.9 hp kicker motor. i have kicker attached to main motor by a threaded rod and hem joints. I used yesterday for first time and it was very windy and i was trolling 2.0-2.4 mph and it kept course extremely well. I am using stand alone..not tied into my graph as my graph is a Garmin 7610xsv.
  21. I just had a Raymarine EV150 autopilot installed by Hank on my 2018 Fishmaster 210 and he did a flawless job and very neat and clean with his install. He is extremely busy, but if you need repairs or equipment installed give him a shout...he is a great guy!
  22. Just purchased a Starcraft Fishmaster 210,. Awesome boat with one of the best warranties in the business. When i go to sell this boat people will be standing in line....check on-line...soon as one of these boats are posted for sale.. they are gone! Check out boat specs on-line... very deep..tons of storage...tons of room and will handle Lake Ontario no problem. Good luck in your boat hunt... but give Starcraft a look......
  23. Just like Trophy Seeker said....this is what you can use. I have 2 on my boat one on each battery with proper fuse rating based on wire size. Blue Seas ST-Blade Battery Terminal Mount Fuse Block Kit
  24. I need to add a 2nd battery due to elec riggers..autopilot etc. The question I have is should I purchase a ACR Auto Charge Relay kit by Blue Seas or just purchase a dual battery Perko switch and run it off of that without auto charge relay? Any thoughts?
