    Just a thought, check to make sure your ground isn’t running through the boat for electric like for lights and such. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    You should be able to find a decent unit for 1k, ( don’t listen to those Furuno guys lol) then get some new fishing gear at January’s expo with the other 1k. Tell her it came as a package lol. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    DEC Announces Record Breaking Fishing

    We should give praise to the fisheries, volunteer groups for pen project etc. A lot of concerns last year with lake trout and sticking levels and such. Glad they made it what it was this year! Sure was a bunch of work done to create it for us. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Hydraulic steering

    Hydraulic steering

    So when you get a package with the ram, helm and hoses, the helm will either be a 1.4, 1.7, 2.1, or 2.4. The smaller the number will require more turns over between port and stern. The 1.7 is typically 5 turns to go from each. In my aluminum it was very difficult because I kept having to oversteer to get it go where I wanted easily like at a dock or get to the trailer to load it. With that said the higher the number the less it will take to turn the wheel but harder to turn as your moving more fluid through the helm if you know what I mean. I went with a 2.4 which is extreme but wanted the ease. 2.1 will probably get you in the ball park. My opinion the 1.7 is not enough but that’s just me. Hope it helps.

    Make sure you get the correct size helm. If you get it to small of a ratio you will be going crazy getting to the dock. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I’m going to agree. Even if a person wanted to go out in that type of dangerous condition and put the risk to only themselves and not endangering anyone else, you still have people that have to put themselves in danger for having to go out and rescue them. We have to remember that. They have families and loved ones as well. As a side note, I also respect all of the LOU members as this is an elite group, we just have to realize people show emotions in different ways. Social media doesn’t help with showing that. Nobody wanted to see this and I’m sure all are sadden like me, as we all have a skin in this game, that a fellow fisherman lost his life and another had to be a part of it. As others mentioned, if we can pull out a learning lesson from this as they go through the findings, we can help prevent future catastrophes. Whether behavioral or mechanical. My sincere condolences to the families affected by this. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Tie bar system for kicker motor

    You might want to confirm that, I think you need the HDS models to control the autopilot Lowrance makes. I think the elite can only read data via NEMA 2000 wiring. Maybe someone can confirm if they have been able to figure it out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Repowering

    All good comments and suggestions, one thing to consider and maybe you already have, value of your boat to your investment. As you might already realize, new motor isn’t cheap and putting it on a 95 year class boat takes you out of any future payback if you ever wanted to sell it. Might be your boat to keep for life however and that’s great. She’ll love that 4 stroke on her. I tend to agree with buying a brand that can be serviced close to home is huge. Good luck. Show us a pic when you have her on. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I’d be interested in seeing responses but from me, I don’t think you could get me to add that to a new motor on a break in tank. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    115 hp 2stroke yamaha

    If you don’t find anything in the fuel side, being a 2001, not sure how many hours on it, you might want to do a quick compression check on the cylinders. Hopefully it’s something simple as mentioned above. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fish hawk x4 issue

    For what ever it’s worth, if you turn your unit on, continue to spin the impeller while it’s sitting on the trailer, you should see a reading, if not something is wrong, nothing to do with the position, but as mentioned it may need some adjusting after you find out why it’s not reading.

    Let me pick your experienced brains!

    Sterling, invent something that removes fleas from the line, I’m not talking about a tool that you would have to use while a person is reeling in a fish, or a line that you have to add to your mainline (unless it’s a year round line)but something that cuts or removes them off at the tip as you reel. Goal, never to have to change, modify or add to your set up during the year. Invent that and you have something very valuable. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    Raymarine EV 100 autopilot

    Rusty, all good suggestions. Also, the compass being level you want to make sure no cables or wires are near it. Had a similar thing happen to me when a cable dropped on top of it from a rough ride. Made the compass go haywire. When your in auto, does the heading change when it’s over steering? Meaning does it still hold course but the pump is still running that causes it to turn? Hope ya find the cause. Techs are always helpful as well at Raymarine.
