To answer your original question, yes the QSB water pump is much easier to replace than the 6BTA should that be necessary. You don't need to fool with a motor mount or do any of the other painful...

I am surprised by these responses because in 60 years of fishing in salt water, I have never had a dolphin pick up a trolled artificial or a trolled ballyhoo or other natural bait nor have any of my...

No just the tell tale "pee stream" is above the water line and it doesn't drain anything if the motor is shut down. The sea water pump is in the lower unit on the intake side of the cooling system. ...

That looks like more than 30 kts to me. I'll have to get the Cummins tech to read the ECM on the motors to see how many hours are over 2800 rpms!

That makes sense. I am a bit worried about the trolling motor holding into current and putting the boat stern to the waves. Guess I just won't use it under those conditions. It's not like being on...

Really if the weather allows, just go outside at the mouth of the Chesapeake and run down the coast to Beaufort Inlet unless you want to see the scenery of the Dismal Swamp. It is faster and much...

I checked out that You Tube video that shows the NE canyon CMOR charts. It wasn't all that impressive, certainly not $600 worth of impressive. Also the coverage up on the flats near the canyons that...

Why would you have left the motor down when not in use? I have a 2008 F115, very similar motor, that is on a boat kept and run entirely in salt water. The anodes are changed annually and the motor...

Well you do save about $3,000 with the DRS12AX magnetron over the DRS25A-NXT solid state so that is something to factor in. I went from my old Furuno DRS12A (predecessor to AX model) 4' array to a...
