    Put me second in line. I'll take it if upnorthangler169 doesn't.
  2. Check Gander Mountain in your area. If you can find a store that still has some, they're selling Humminbird 698C HD SI units for $350., and there's 2 $75. rebates, one from GM and one from Johnson outdoors. As of Saturday they were no longer available on line.
  3. Yes, I don't doubt you'll get 2 $75 rebates. 1 is from Humminbird and the other from Gander Mtn. Free shipping too. With the 15% off and tax added, mine was $314.59. minus $150. = $164.59 for a nice color, GPS, Side Imaging unit. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Do You Need a Small GPS/Fishfinder This is NOT an advertisement, just passing along a good deal. Humminbird 698ci HD SI units are really raesonable right now with 15% off and 2 $75 rebates @GM.

    I think I just need to get out from behind this computer and get out behind a planer board mast.

    If "size don't matter" why's it have to be 18 - 21 ft? Sorry, just couldn't resist. Hope you have a sense of humor.
  7. Greatlakesskipper.com has a bunch of 'em. Some of them pretty expensive, a few not so bad. Might be worth the effort to check 'em out if you haven't already.

  10. Hi HH, I'm not an expert by any scale but I have some experience and ideas on your question. There are lots of things to consider before you mount your kicker. First, you may want to consider which side the wiring harness, control cables and steering tube for the main engine are on. I've found most of the time that's the SB side so it makes sense to put the kicker on the other side (port) so all that stuff isn't in your way all the time. Double check everything on the transom, inside and out to determine what's in the way on either side. (I drilled a hole in a portable fuel tank once) If possible, mount the kicker temporarily before drilling any holes and check that it swivels to both sides freely and that you can tilt it up and down without interference. Since your kicker is electric start/remote control make sure you'll be able to hook up the wiring, controls, and steering with no problems. I bet some other guys will add to this but let me say, sometimes deciding which side is easy. My boat has a boarding ladder/swim platform on the SB side so my kicker is Port. As far as efficiency and actually powering/propelling your boat I don't think there's a significant difference which side the kicker is on. Hope this helps. Good luck with your project.
