I'd appreciate it if you could trim the palms back a little.
They are obstructing my view of the masterpiece!


I'd blow out the back of your house and put in all frameless glass.

Seawolf congrats on the new build! She is badass... I was hoping since you have spent some time on her, when you have a moment can you compare the TX-06 Simrad 4´ open array (SeaVee 34) to the TX-10 Simrad 6´ open array (Inv. 42)? Have you noticed any significant difference between the two? Obviously the 6´ has a narrower beamwidth = better target seperation, but curious to your opinion when finding birds... Thanks for any input!

I had a 6 kW on my CV and was not happy with it so CV removed and changed her out with the 10 kW with the 4 ft array for just the difference in the cost of equipment. I feel the 10 kW is amazing and I was playing with her with the 6 ft array and if you have the room that is the way to go... You can find one bird 6 miles away crazy. I really love my Simrad equipment.

Default One day Walker Cay Wahoo trip

Yesterday we left the dock at 7 am to clear at west end bahamas this time we could not run more than 35 knots since we had a 3 to 4 ft mixed sea we got to west end at 9 am cleared customs and left for Walkers Cay 50 mile run we were fishing at 10 am we found dirty green water with a lot of weeds we gave it till after the tide change 12:30 pm we were marking fish but not bites. and decided to run north to the tip of matanilla shoal. Found dirty green water again...marked fish but not bites. Decided to run to white sands and deep drop. We did 2 drops got 6 yellow eye snapper and then the lightning and 25 knot winds and rain moved in it was 4 pm and we decided to go home we broke the inlet just after 6 pm the total trip we covered 345 km in 12 hours and burned 400 gallons... I am amazed at the area we can cover and the speed we can do on this invincible. To do this same trip years ago it would have been at least a 2 or 3 day trip... This is my 3 rd trip and still have not been able to find any complaints with this incredible fishing machine...

Thanks for the advice they are coming next week to trim the trees and the back of my house is all glass. Will upload new picture after tree trimming. LOL

Seawolf,

Had any quirky issues with your evo16s? Are they as bright as you expected? I have one on my bay boat and it self destructed yesterday while on the water. Time to test the SIMRAD customer service standards.

PS Nice boat....even better when you catch swords on it first go...

No Issues at all working great only thing is if you are wearing polarized glasses from an angle it is hard to see the screen you have to look straight on with the glasses on other than that I found them to be great ...

Agreed on the viewing angle...best of luck with them....no where close to as bright as my NSE12 that I had....perhaps I had a bad egg.

Highly recommend purchasing 3" PVC pipe and placing a length over the original Hi Tide guide posts, the 3" will lay atop the brackets, and strengthen up the guide posts, furthermore, they will more freely roll and not bind the rub rail. Good idea is to also mark the waterline on the PVC with a stripe of electrical tape so you know the water level where as the bunks are going to bite, gives a good mark, and makes the wait for when you do get a bite predictable. Hi Tide is a great lift, expensive proprietary parts unfortunately. Love your rig and set up!

Thanks for the advise they marked the waterline with 3" PVC tape already and they have 2 " aluminum pipes Inside the 2 1/2 " PVC pipes guide post so you are saying I should put 3" PVC pipe over the 2 1/2" pipe is that correct ???
