I don't know how to use mine either. Any good videos on using it?

Adding Dual Simrad NSS12's to my Fountain. Now that I have run twin screens, I can't ever NOT have them. Now I'm adding dual Simrad Go9's to my bay boat.

Hands down for me the best addition has been an Ace Line Hauler. If you pull rec. lobster traps, this is the most useful tool you could own. I can't say enough good things about the product or company (they stand by their product). I bought my first one 11 years ago it's still running today. Not bad considering it never leaves the boat and is literally rinsed off with salt water after each use. I upgraded this year to the new model depicted in the image below (not my image). It's a little faster than the original, has some updated supports and a hand free line coiler.
