  1. Have a 262 penn yan competitor. Also have a t9.9 with tr1 gold love it. But like anyone that fished this year it was bumpy. My 9.9 struggles when it 3 ft and bigger. Its just to hard with cavitation. A couple time heading into wind i ran my main has the 454 in it carb sucks normal conditions i troll way to fast. But 4 ft rollers it holds 2.3 2.4 perfect. Looking for a inexpensive auto pilot for my main. But i might be ok with kicker i turned down the gain it stopped flapping back and forth this fall. But would love the second option. Of the main. 

  2. I need to recoat the 262 this year. It has a ablative paint on it now. What does everyone recommend brand??? Previous owner cant remember brand. Its been on since 2011 and just started to show fiberglass because i went at it with scrub brush. 

  3. Well first season under my belt had a great season. Had some gremlins but got fixed. Ran half the season on 7 cilinders that I had no clue about valve stuck and cap was curoded. But other then that having the autopilot stuck in zig zag for a day and a half. The boat fishes Amasing!! I cant wait to next season!

  4. Running on agm 31 series with 12.9 volts. I would shut it off  it will track straight then soon as I hit throttle up it would activate it again. So I think its on zig zag just need to figure out how to stop. Might put the factory reset code in just hope it don't loose north settings. 

  5. Got out today shutdown in 120 started kicker and the autopilot. Set my direction and it started its course then after 50 yds it went into a zig zag pattern. Couldn't get it to stop pulled fuse 2 x then was fine for about a hr or two then started again same crap. Then I put in standby then auto was fine for a hr then it started again this time I was so pissed I picked up and called it a day. Any ideas ?? 

  6. I have older cannons that came on the boat I had one that would struggle to lift my 13 lb torpedos. Lifts my 10s no problem. Has been fine my other 2 lift the 13s no problem. Yesterday one stopped and would need me to turn spoil then go for 20 ft and stop again. Motor or lube? I have a tote of 5 more for parts should I hook my charger to motors find the ones that work and change it out? Going to need to upgrade but cant

  7. When I run my autopilot or just have 9.9 in gear if I trim up it will pop my fuse if its off no problems. Don't know if the cnc dosent have enough a-- to lift in gear causing it to pop fuse. Any clue?  wires new and new fuse block. 

  8. Got her in finally thus weekend and all put back together after the drive out. Went for a small ride sat afternoon ran great kept it at 3000 rpm for a  while temp and oil pressure were perfect! Got to fish sun for a couple hrs. But ready for the summer hopefully!!!
