I have it. The problem is the top part is not very "thick", which means the skeg will scrape the ground in my fairly steep driveway. So I use a piece of 2x4 in addition to that thing.

Get a multimeter and measure the voltage on the boat-end of the new and old cord? There got to be some differences.

It depends. The fishes that I don't want? They are always biting, depth, location, moon phase, anything, doesn't matter. The target species? They just don't bite.

A few months ago I got some quote for 22' panga (new). Nothing fancy, just basic stuff (tilt steering, floor, bilge pump, trailer, etc). It's $30k and up.
