It’s a Garmin reactor 40 with 1.2 liter pump. When I was making a right turn, the motor straightened on it’s own which is why it kept wanting to pull left.

Pull the old tip as was explained above. Clean the old glue completely off and measure it. I also reload ammo so I have a good set of calipers. That’s what I’d use. Lots of websites sell roller tips,...

Thanks for the information. My boat is a center console and doesn’t need a house battery. I’ll start alternating between battery one and two. Makes perfect sense. Thanks again.

More to think about... General consensus seems to be that if your using Garmin then the GHC20 is worth the extra money. Any thoughts on the shadow drive? Since you can disengage the AP from the...

Help with weather forecasts?

I live between 3 and 5 hours from the Texas coast, depending on where I go. I normally check NOAA and the local weather for that area. Frequently, I get there and find it's too rough to go out, or...

I've had a Riptide Ulterra, iPilot 72"shaft 112# since April. It's mounted on a 25' Bluewater. Growing up bass fishing, I really insist on having a trolling motor, even on an offshore boat. It's...

Here is the right adhesive for that. You can also use the same process you use for attaching/replacing guides to wrap the seem with.

Garmin 7610xsv

I've looked online and at my owners manual but can't find this info, at least not in a way I understand it. "Dumb" your answers down a little if you don't mind.

Is there a setting on this machine...

I didn't know that some wouldn't. I know that most, if not all monohulls won't. I wouldn't say that that's a criteria. It would sure be an advantage if you lost an engine though.

I've got a Minn Kota Riptide-I pilot link on my boat now. Mines a 60" shaft which is adequate most of the time. It also has a foot control. For my uses at least, it makes anchors obsolete. In bigger...

Thanks for the great advice. As you head South (think Port Mansfield) it's possible to get into deep water and good fishing without those grueling boat rides ( think Galveston). I've only fished out...

Thanks everyone for your advice, input and opinions. Catamarans of any brand besides WC and GB are fairly uncommon here in Texas. I think Gulf Coast Marine does sell Twin Vees though.
