  1. some pics would help you sell faster
  2. I would say with the square bill more of an Lazy Ike also
  3. Running a Lowrance Hook7, on the sonar display i get fine diagonal lines across the screen, is this from running the transducer cable along side all the power cables. Also i loose bottom and display while moving at 15 mph is this normal.
  4. Finally, All working as it should. Amazing it took 5 calls and 4 different techs to get the right information. thank you to everyone for the help offered.
  5. Ok, called Lowrance for the fifth time, spoke with another different tech person. Finally got someone that knew what they were talking about. Cmap has a card that should work, navionics doesn't support the older machines. Drove to Connecticuit to Bridge marine $125 later headed home with a possible fix. heading out this morning to see if it's finally fixed. Also found out the tech i spoke with in the fall , had me do things that wiped my navionics card clean. Will update on end results.
  6. Andre I'll call them first thing in the morning. although this one looks like a regular size sd card. my unit takes the small micro card
  7. Spoon fed, It has to be a micro card and from what Navionics said it has to be, MSD/SD US East This was from their service tech, John who sounded like he was from India, my call even had that long delay like it was an overseas call, very dissapointing
  8. Andre I hear what your saying but Navionics says they have nothing that would work and Lowrance says they don't support the unit because it's too old and cant be serviced or supported by them. Super great customer service and support. Seems companies just don't want to go the extra mile, they just want you to keep spending and buy new.
  9. i bought the unit in 2018, thanks for the help. A card at half price won't matter, none of their software will work with the unit, they no longer support the Lowrance Hook 7. They have zero, no software that could possibly work. No cards, nothing. Bottom line is I have a $700 door stop Last Lowrance product I will ever buy.
  10. After speaking with Navionics again, the only card that would help would be msd/sd US east Thanks for your offers but they wont work according to Navionics
  11. cant go on the website, navionics said they no longer have software to support the older cards, my unit was bought in 2018. I will check to see if either of those cards would work.
  12. Found out my Lowrance Hook 7 Triple shot came with a Navionics card that has no overlays in it. Navionics doesn't support the older cards so I have a $700 door stop. Unless someone has an older card, I would need a Navionics Card MSD/SD US East , hope to hear from someone with better news than Lowrance or Navionics had.
  13. Have an Lowrance Hook7tripleshot. Used it about 10 times then had some issues with it. Spoke to Lowrance tech people 2 yrs ago when it was acting up. They had me take the Navi card out and upload new firmware and some other downloads. Well the boat needed repairs so it took time to repair, New Floor and complete rewire of the whole boat. Got it done for this weekend, Sonar seem to be working but Chart plotter only shows blue water, no waypoints no structure , nothing but blue water. Spent 2 hrs on hold at the dock because they needed it in the water to try somethings. after an hour withthe tech person they guess the last guy had me wipe the maps out. was told i need to call Navionics cause its there mapping. Well tomorow morning I'll call first thing see what kind of song and dance I'll get. not bad spent $650 on a unit that last 10 times and now it's gonna be a door stop. Lowrance said they couldnt do much because it's an old model they dont support anymore, great customer service. Even the couple times it was used, it didnt impress me at all. Over the past 45 years I've had a wide variety of electronics starting with flashers, then paper graphs and LED units and i can say this unit is not user friendly . Should of got a Garmin. Which i will probably do, no faith in this unit or any of thier other products.
  14. Pipe benders electrician's use are made for pipe, tubing is different size's than pipe. Tubing is measured by outside diameter and pipe is measured by inside diameter, or visa versa
  15. Finished laying down 2 layers of Bi-axle fiberglass matting and 3 gallons of resin. Just completely rewired the whole boat. Only thing left is painting the topside and gel coating the floor. This is a project I know I will never do again.
  16. woods all down already, monday i'll start glassing the floor with fiberglass mat and resin.
  17. Got all the plywood down, Hardest part was both consoles lining up so the windshield closes right. Needed a new teleflex cable for steering but they dont make it anymore so a whole new Sea Star steering system went in. This week hopefully I can glass the entire deck, Then rewire everything. Should of just got a new to me boat.
  18. if that motor has reed valves I would change them while your at it. Reed valves are an easy job. Then you should be good to go.
  19. I found a very flexible bilge hose on amazon that would work great, thanks for the reply's
  20. i was thinking about that possibility , just was hoping to find a very flexible hose.
  21. Hello all, in the slow process of putting down a new floor in my 18ft smokercraft, My problem is while i'm at it i am replacing any thing that was under the floor. the live well's overflow hoses are about 10 inches long going out each side , they have an 1 1/2 in inside diameter but they have a 3 inch offset, i need some flex hose that is soft enough to get the offset needed, guess it would of made too much sense to line the overflows straight when they built it. I found what the local marine shop calls flex hose but you need a gorrilla to bend it, and i need to offset it 3-4 inches in a 10 inch run. any help would be welcomed. Thanks Bud
  22. Decided to go with Marine plywood, place downstate in Dutchess county, Condon Lumber has any piece of wood known to man. $119 a sheet. By far the strongest plywood i have ever seen. Will keep updated on progress.
