  1. When you figure it out, let us know where you ended up. I’d be curious to know and I’m sure others would now and in the future.
  2. OK2, I am in the process of rebuilding a 221V Islander, and part of the rework is to move about 200#’s forward. I am doing it through battery and anchor chain. I would suggest that if you were interested in knowing how your particular boat would handle, perhaps a little test with some ballast might help you decide whether or not you would benefit from a more permanent change. I also intend on adding trim tabs to help balance the ride. Baddad

  13. Couple initial questions if I may... 1.) Is the recommendation to go with SeaStar helm pump and cylinder tee'd into an Autpilot pump and use the OEM hydraulics as a power assisted slave cylinder with main power on? 2.) What negative effect is there in AP mode with the main power off and trolling with kicker? 3.) Is there any safety concerns operating in AP with the Main and needing to manually take control?

  16. One would think so, but unfortunately I haven’t come across a lot of power assisted mercruiser steering upgrades. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Chas: I have been considering doing exactly the same on my Islander, wondering if you would consider detailing the process and comment on your experience with the results.
  18. IDK: Being new to this type of fishing and trying to absorb as much knowledge as I could by reading as much as I could, I found I was starting to develop brain swell... For me, I took an opportunity to visit a descent tackle shop that had most of the brands and after really putting my hands on each of them, the instant comparison of cost, features and construction made my decision much easier.

  21. Well there is always something more to be said.... Thanks for one! I appreciate the responses and sharing of opinions. Like any newbie, just trying to figure it all out and hopefully not the hard way... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. So for depth it's sorta the 100' rule, down 20 out 80 / down 80 out 20.
