  1. I'm interested in seeing pics of mounts with RAM if anyone would like to share...I have a small Garmin 5" FF mounted just to the left of my steering wheel, and sure as **** I bump it with my left thumb sometimes...I also just installed a FH X4D on the right of the dash and it's a little tight...I have an older '80's 17' open bow I converted into a fishing boat, so the dash is not optimized for any extras... I did just buy a couple of RAM mounts, want to see how others use them to clear up a crowded dash...
  2. Ok the overall length is 11", with the fin 6" and the lead pancake 5" in diameter. The pancake is 2" wide in the center and tapers to 5/8" at the edges. Hope this helps
  3. Right I'm not saying I would do it personally, I actually kind of enjoy the bay right now with the 5mph speed limit, makes it 100% fishable currently...
  4. Bosco I hear you...My friend has his boat at South Point, at the south end of I Bay. If he idles to the lake it takes him 45 minutes...Each way. I know the restriction says no more than 5mph/idle speed up to 500' from shore, but I am pretty sure if you stuck to the middle of the bay you would be more than 500' from either shore and could open it up... Although most people watching you wouldn't think it was ok and would probably be screaming at you...;-)
  5. I'm pretty sure the launch on the east side at Mayer's is still open...
  6. Thanks, I will try to figure out an excuse to get up there LOL...Maybe to buy some stuff at Fat Nancy's.... I would be more than willing to pay shipping and for your time and trouble to ship if you would be open to that, just let me know. I live just outside of Rochester.
  7. I will get you some dimensions from the one I have tonight and post it. The Tru-Trac that I have shown is a 10 pounder...
  8. Thanks, got any pics of them? How much are you asking for them? Mike
  9. Damn, I was wondering when that 5mph would come this year...I figured it would be any day now judging by the water level at Mayer's...
  10. Just got an X4D from North Woods outlet in March, $749 + $15 shipping, but no tax...Best deal I found, showed up 2 days after I ordered it.
  11. Looking for a couple of downrigger weights like the one pictured, don't have to be Tru-Trac brand, but need to be 10-12 lbs and local to Rochester/Monroe County...Dont want to think about what shipping would be on these! Thanks
  12. Hi Bill I will take them, I will send you a check tonight. Thanks, Mike
  13. XX is usually 25", and it is usually for a sailboat as sszoldra said. I have an XX 8HP Johnson Sailmaster as my kicker, perfect for a deep v with a garelick adjustable bracket...
  14. Yes actually I just relisted it on CL the other day. Let me know if you would like to take a look.
  15. Wow you did a great job with this rebuild! I was wondering, did you screw those pieces of cutting board into the transom, or use 2 part epoxy to mount? I have 1 piece of star board on my port side mounted with screws and marine adhesive, but i need to put another piece on the starboard side for my Fish Hawk transducer. I would like to try just the adhesive method, where you drill a couple plug holes in the back side of the star board...Please share!
  16. Northwoods Wholesale Outlet X2...Best price I found and great customer service.
  17. Thanks, I think I will try the FH transducer on the starboard side, but I am going to mount another piece of star board to the port side before I put the boat in its slip so if I have to move it, its not such a pain...
  18. Thanks for the feedback...I have seen some comments by members here and on other boards that the kicker creates problems, but my thought is that the FH transducer moves through the water before the kicker does, so it shouldn't be a problem...I would think the 83khz of the Garmin would be a bigger issue but I could be wrong.
