  1. That may be the issue. I hade twin 15s on their in the past with no issues but they were older engines. I’ll have to look at my options. I don’t believe there is a way to raise them up higher. Fun project anyway
  2. Yea, I’m pushing the spirit a bit. From an environmental standpoint I’m ahead of the game going from twin 15 hp 30 year old two strokes to twin 2021 four stroke. But the real issue is safety. The lake I fish blows up fast and at 8-10 mph your a sitting duck. They lose people in weather there almost every year. Also I need the extra power for fishing the Delaware river. Most of my fishing is in elec only lakes.
  3. I just finished the bulk of the work on my 16 Sylvan Pro Select. NJ has HP restrictions on many of the lakes I fish. 9.9 Max. They don't seem to mind if I use more than one. For years I have been running Twin 1995 Evinrudes upgraded to 15 HP. What I did here is buy 2 2021 Suzuki 9.9 and upgraded them to 20 HP each. It was a very simple upgrade. I first used a single 9.9. on my 16 Sylvan I only had 7.5 MPH. I then upgraded it to a 20 HP. With single engine the speed went up to only 9.5 MPH. So, I bit the bullet and purchased a 2nd 9.9 and upgraded it to a 20 HP. What a Change. With the Twin 20 HP Suzuki outboards I now can hit 28 MPH. Wow, what a change. Still doing some tweaking to get things right. One issue I am having now is I get a large rooster tail between the engines. It is a problem. Lots of water shooting up and into the transom area. Plus I would think it is a large drag that may slow me down. I can't seem to find a reason for the Rooster tail. Any Suggestions? Regards Bryan

  16. 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
  17. Yea, most handhelds transmit at 1 watt. Fixed units are 5 watt
  18. 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
