Check out the area on Google maps satellite view before you go. And, as others have said, wear polarized glasses. In some places sandbars shift a lot so maps may be out of date.

The Merc was probably better at low speed due to less weight on the transom resulting in less bow rise or a more efficient trim angle. The Merc was also a hair faster, but the Yamaha had better...

I agree with dm - an EV is a great 2nd car for a household. One car for road trips, and the EV for everything else. Speaking of not wasting time waiting on a car to recharge, consider this: I never...

I have a Tesla. It absolutely is better than comparable cars in every way except trips > 200 miles. I have an Expedition for that and towing.

It was big swells on Sunday. I took some kids surfing at Honeymoon Island, it was glassy between the swells but some sets of big swells rolled through. A much longer period between waves than normal,...

I think we'll see them become popular in lakes first, where range isn't an issue but emissions are.

Range is the killer for most people on THT. Maybe diesel /electric hybrids would works for some...

I like RC585's idea. Keep the B164 for now, add a B60 along with the DFF3D. When you add your 2nd TZT3 in the future, if you feel like there is something specific you are missing out on, replace the...

I think so, considering 120' is max depth you might fish, but I am no expert on this, definitely get some other opinions or do further research. I have a B60 with a Furuno gp1971f, I fish west of...

I'm a big fan of bottom discrimination and accu-fish, it makes things really easy. I'd try to find a narrow beam thru-hull that supports those features if it were me.

Just FYI, you have conflicting answers here. If you select the generic 600w 50/200 setting, you won't be able to turn on the accu-fish, rezboost, or bottom discrimination features, but if you select...

In this electrical version, there is no gearcase. It could be attached by a narrow vertical piece of metal that contains the wires to the batteries. The entire motor is inside the outer rim. Plus,...

Absolutely. Lots of people go in even smaller boats, you'll be fine. Winds out of the east are best. The important thing to know is where the really shallow spots are, so study a chart and satellite...
