  7. I’m running my boat out about 50 miles next week in search of tuna and mahi
  8. This is a different type of report for you guys up there on the big lake. I am in New Jersey and went down to the marina to pull my boat for some maintenance…..again. My bud and I thought we would chase Sea Bass and Fluke for a couple of hours before pulling the boat. We headed out to one of spots about 8 miles off the beach. We ended up with a dozen or so of mostly shorts. Then thing got interesting. A 10-12 foot Great White shark jumped 8 feet out of the water. We watched this thing splashing all over the surface and when it jumped again it came out of the water inverted with its mouth wide open. Amazing sight. It jumped 5 times. You could see the membrane over its eyes and all those amazing teeth. What a cool experience. We headed back into the bay and came across a couple of porpoise jumping and playing and the to end it another shark, this tim a thresher jumped and rolled on the surface maybe 200 yards from shore. It’s not salmon, but a really cool day
  9. Yea, most handhelds transmit at 1 watt. Fixed units are 5 watt
  10. The handhelds do not put out the same power that the larger units do. You may only get a couple of miles on them.I have two mounted VHF units on my boat and when I run offshore a sat phone is a must

  12. I thought I would get to 18-20. Now with the correct prop I’m hopeful I will see 12-14
  13. OK I did the break in and swapped the prop to the 9.25 x 11. It did not work out very well. 4500 rpm and 8.5 knots. I ordered the 9.25 x 9 and will try it out next week
  14. I’m looking into the rev limiters and the throttle position sensor. It’s a pain. Everything I try I have to drive the boat 20 miles to the lake to try things
  15. OK, So I mounted my 9.9 2021 Suzuki on my 16 ft Sylvan Pro Select. With the supplied 5 degree 4 blade prop. I could get 8.3 mph out of the engine. I installed the new ECM and Throttle plate to convert to a 20 HP motor. I also changed the prop to a 9.25 x 11. this is where the problems begin. Now the most I can get is 4400 RPM and a max speed of 7.7 MPH. Its not the prop. The engine just hits 4400 at 2/3 throttle and stops. if I trim the motor way up it still won't go over 4400 RPM. Any ideas
  16. Keep the 175 on the boat. It need the power. 90 HP will just not be enough

    I’m glad I have twins on my saltwater boat. Last year I blew a lower unit 74 miles offshore. Took a long time but I made it back

    When I spend a day trolling for striper done by me (NJ) I burn through about 25-30 gallons with my twin 175s. This 9.9/20 will be on my 16 ft Sylvan pro select. I would think I will be able to troll all day for about 2 gallons

    Looks good, I have mine mounted with the digital gauge. Everything seems to work. I am just over 3 hours into the break in. I’m going to take it out on a local lake Saturday and try to get 3 more hours on it. I’m going to convert to the 20 hp when I hit 15 hours.
