RightRX nailed it. Simrad’s S5100 sonar can transmit 3 channels at the same time. You can display multiple frequencies from different ducers covering the complete water column.
Yesterday was a long day. I woke at 2:30am to head north. I met a Seavee customer in Daytona and delivered his pipework. I also had a 32 Regulator hard top acting like a shark fin in my F150 delivery truck. That along with all his pipework had to go to Savvanna. They belonged to some very nice fellow tht’r’s whom are reworking the boat from the ground up with new Suzuki 350’s!
Freeman was fun. I go pretty far back with Scott & Billy now. I am both a vendor and customer now. Hopefully they enjoy building me the boat as much as I do. Being a business owner my goal is to be happy and let the boat happen. The factory is crazy big and already filled up. We dropped a pile of Simrad, Wetsounds, Shadowcaster & a badass Inverter charger off and checked on Fat Bottom Girl. She is a beast!

This made in the USA monster! I also added the remote and battery monitoring kit to it.

To start we are doing a R599lm & B175HW powered by the Simrad S5100 sounder module.
The boat will also have 3d structure scan. We are getting some of the first 19" Simrad NSO EVO 3 screens. I was a big fan of the speed and performance of the NSO system on my Yellowfin and look forward to having it back on the 42lr. The boat will have the tried and true RC42 compass long with the newer precision 9 compass.
We like to chase birds and this will be my third boat with the 10kw Birdfinder broadband radar. We can with 100% paint birds to 8 miles with it. While the Halo is better for navigation the broadband gets that job done also.
Autopilot is done with the SG05 gateway to Optimus steering. BIG FAN OF OPTIMUS STEERING! If you have not tried it I highly recommend it for any new build you have going. If I had known about its performance neither of my Yellowfins would have been without it...
I am loaded with a truck and trailer full of Ultra for customers and with stuff for Fat Bottom Girl. Heading to the factory tomorrow to get my hands on her and my own pictures. For now, this will have to do

Charlie Brown asks - What are Fat Bottom Girls made of? #Freemanfridays

Now some real Line-X fun begins! I am going to spray the aluminum in the Ford Blue Streak color'd Line-X and the fenders and front in Black Line-X Premium. I am really going to make this a display piece. The stickers will be inlayed like the last one. I think I am going to add a place for the Fat Bottom Girl on this one.
Ameratrail has the Freeman trailer dialed in! I am adding an electric over hydraulic jack to the front to make raising and lowering push button. Everything about this trailer is bigger than my 37 version. I tucked the boat as close to the front as possible to help make it through gas stations etc..check it out -

Jesus, pulling a 42 you must have to be really careful which gas stations you pull into.
