Filling the compartment 20% full sounds like more than you should use in most cases, too. Usually you just want a light coating. But, don't take my word for it, google Alan Tani's website and watch a...

If all you want is your coordinates, I'd buy a Garmin eTrex. Costs under $100, is bulletproof and very to use. Very dependable. I had my first one for 8 or 10 years and when I replaced it, it still...

Good luck Marsh Mallowe,

You might have been very close with that power wire diagnosis. If your 332 uses a NMEA 2000 Buss network, you will need to run a seperate power wire to the NMEA 2000 buss (network) cable, in addition...

Depending on what electronics you have you might be able to just buy a sensor that will feed fuel use information to your chartplotter/sonar. As DrewC says, Navman has one and so do Lowrance and...

Well, I don't know about that rock, wherever it is, or whether it isn't showing because someone turned off the feature (as one of the commenters suggests). What I DO know is I have run boats for the...

Thumbs up Squirrel chaser

I go this CO2 BB pistol for about $80 and I can hit pretty well with it (for a pistol). I'm pretty sure it would chase a squirrel off effectively, but not kill him. I got my Dad one and he uses it to...
