Looking good! What model Humminbird did you get, 1159 or Helix 10?

I got the 1199 thinking of taking out the lowrance and putting in a 997c there. Might set that up on a shoot threw hull. I just don't know where to put it with a inboard.

I have the 959ci HD GPS combo and it's a great unit. If you already own a 997c, a thru hull ducer won't give you side imaging capabilities (not that you need it AND the 1199). You should be able to find a good deal on a 959 without DI or SI, and it will have a built-in GPS antenna like your 1199. I've never installed or used a thru hull ducer, so I can't help you with that. I'm sure there are plenty of members on LOU that can help you with a thru hull setup.

 

On a side note, the 959 XD combo comes with a 50/200 ducer for deep water trolling. I run a Lowrance HDS8 with a 50/200 ducer along with my 959 with the 83/200 ducer. I like being able to troll with all three ducer frequencies running at the same time. I run the 959 on an 83/200 split screen and the HDS8 on a 50/GPS split screen.

Seven year old gasoline could be a problem.

Not 100% sure he said he drained the tanks before he stored it. Its sitting nose up on the trailer so I don't think there is enough in there to read. Hoping anyways

Got the kicker running like at top. Ran like crap at first until I took out the e choke and made sure it was plugged in all the way. Ran great after that. Let it run in gear for a half hr or so. Going to put 50 gallons in it next week and run it.

It did! Definitely a different handling ride to the ranger but ill get it. All I know it's enjoyable to fish out of I'm not tripping on things! And the auto pilot is the king for sure!!

Not tripping over things is real nice! I have room for my tackle boxes, a 70qt cooler and a 150qt cooler on my 22ft boat and I'm not tripping over anything. Autopilot will have to wait until next year.
