  1. 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...
  2. Yes actually I just relisted it on CL the other day. Let me know if you would like to take a look.
  3. 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!
  4. Northwoods Wholesale Outlet X2...Best price I found and great customer service.
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. Just purchased an X4D from Northwoods Outlet, and I am looking for some installation advice. I have a 17' Rinker fiberglass boat, and I have my kicker mounted on a Garelick mount on the starboard side, and this is also where I have a piece of star board mounted for my fish finder transducer (Garmin brand if it matters) The Garmin runs the dual frequency sonar at 83/200mhz, and the instructions for the Fish Hawk say it runs at 70mhz. Should I look at adding another piece of star board to the port side of the transom for the Fish hawk, or is it ok to try and mount the Fish Hawk transducer next to the Garmin behind my kicker? Thank, Mike
  8. How's the drag on the reels? I know its nearly impossible to get replacement carbon fiber drag washers for these reels...
  9. Now $350 and I will throw in an external 3 gallon tank...LOU special!
  10. 1980 Johnson 4.5HP outboard, short shaft with internal tank. Great condition, runs very smooth, starts 1st-2nd pull. Asking $400. PM or text me at 585-635-9029 Work I have done to it since last summer: - New impeller - New starter gear - New plugs - Cleaned and rebuilt carb- new float, gaskets, float needle valve and needle seat Link to video of it running after I replaced impeller: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSZwqJWGNw8 Also listed on Rochester CL: https://rochester.craigslist.org/bpo/d/johnson-45hp-outboard/6644083728.html
  11. Thanks, any idea why it has more blowback than the Fish Hawk? Looks like they both use similar shaped probes...Is it the coated cable that does it? Also how is the coated cable at cutting through fleas? I should probably post this as a separate topic to get more feedback...
  12. Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with the Depth Raider DRX-10?
  13. Are you looking for the one that looks like this?
  14. That's what I am leaning towards buying, but it's almost $800 unless you can find a sale or deal. I am interested in the Depth Raider DRX-10 because it's only $450, but I cant figure out if it works with a coated cable and antenna like the Moor Sub Troll does. If so I don't want it...
  15. Here is the link to Fish Hawk's YouTube videos showing how the X2 works with and without a downrigger. With a downrigger, actually looks like a decent setup if you want something more portable. Without one, seems like a little more work... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogZ62_XKhHk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCk7SrHAGYg
  16. Was excited to see Fish Hawk is coming out with a new model next month, the X2. See link below. It only shows speed and temp at the ball, so I was sure it was going to be less expensive than the X4, and definitely less than the X4D. Well WRONG, you get less features for the same $649 that an X4 will cost you...Fish Hawk you lost an opportunity to get a whole new level of weekend warriors into your technology... http://www.marinegeneral.com/productdetails.asp?productid=1655481&directoryid=11432&parentid=10908 It is able to run with or without a downrigger, and doesn't seem to require 12V power for the display unit, but still I thought they would introduce a less expensive model.
